So it seems my blog wasn’t feeling very good today! It went Kaboom as I was doing edits in the WP dashboard. Aiiii!
Turns out the newspaper theme I was using got pulled because of a vulnerability within it. So then I had a 500 Internal Error on my site. Yup there was about half an hour without an active URL here.
I chose a new theme, created a new logo to fit the header, redid Google Ads… and what a day it was! All that and also meeting a potential photographer for our wedding. Yup, that’s it ;)
But you know what, I got a lot done! I learned some code and had a very helpful WordPress Support chat. Plus, I saw my mom. And my fiancé made a darned good chicken stir fry. So in the end I’m thankful for what went right.
Right now I’m relaxing on the couch in my PJs. And our cat Layla is relaxing too!
How was your day? Have you ever had an unexpected blog error?
It was an eventful day for you indeed. Luckily it ended on a high positive note
What a bummer that your blog crashed! My website was hacked last year and I’m still struggling to get my archived posts back on line. On a brighter note, I was excited to learn that you’ll be getting married. Congratulations and best wishes! Take care my friend.
Huge congrats on your upcoming Wedding :), a better day for you today :)
You kept your cool and stuck with it Christy, probably learned a little bit more about your resilience as a result. The world still spun, your fiancè put his cookery skills to good use and at the end of the day you were not a bit frazzled but at ease and relaxed just like your very beautiful Layla!
Indeed Christy, we get to know some amazing people! I’m glad Layla liked my comment!
I hope you get back again.
I am somehow can see all bloggers whom I am following in my mobile app. Along with all posts of the readers are not updated in my app. From sometime sites with no follow button but only name are liking my posts. Little worried about it.
I have to contact WordPress support. Thank you Christy.
Even with this unexpected adversity, it seems like you had a good day.
Never knew a blog could crash, Now, I am afraid to consider a theme change.
Thank goodness, Christi, I haven’t had that particular experience with my blog. I’m so sorry you had to experience that, but, it seems to have all worked out in the end.
I’m loving that you are in your PJs relaxing with your man and your cat; this sounds wonderful. What also sounds wonderful is the knowledge that you’ll be getting married soon… Congrats to you both. I’m now looking forward to the pics you’ll, no doubt, be sharing with us.. :)
You turned a negative into a huge positive which is just so you. You learnt something new (the code) spent some wonderful time with your Mom and your man cooked the dinner. What a busy, eventful and productive day. Definitely time to cat nap :) xxx
cute….thanks for share christy
Hope all gets back to normal soon!👍👍
I’m glad that you were able to resolve the issue quickly and relatively easily, Christy! I’m also glad to know that WordPress was able to help you promptly. I’ve been fortunate to never have issues on my site, but I’m not exactly tech savvie so I would definitely need all the help I could get. Kudos for seeing the positives in the situation!
I am so glad that you were able to get everything back on track! I ran into some minor errors and glitches with my blog when using outside themes, but nothing like a full on crash! I would have been in panic mode! But you seem to have such a nonchalant attitude toward it, luckily! We invest a lot of time and effort into our blogs and posts that even a minor set back, for some people, can feel completely devastating. But you did the only thing you could which was to handle the situation while tackling the rest of life’s twists and turns! The only issue I am dealing with right now is that I have over 400 posts (which shows up when I go to the admin dashboard) but when I go through the other dashboard, only 102 posts come up. 🤪🤔Trying to figure out why it’s not all adding up correctly is driving me mad! Lol. I hope everything went well with the photographer! 💖 Xoxo
Aww, I am so glad that my Tweet made you happy! 🤗 Even if you you were frazzled in the moment, I am so proud of how you handled your situation! And you are so we right — we really do love our blogs! And as for my blog, they all say published. Theres only about 3 drafts. It’s just ao strange! 😣 I hope you have/had a great night, Christy! ❤
What a stirring change of events. I’m glad it worked out for you and you got some tasty stir fry too 😊 looking forward to seeing some beautiful wedding pics in the future 😀
Glad to see you up and running again! Are you going to have “likes” on this new theme?
I knew my old theme was on its last legs. Someone wrote about themes ending/being unsupported and to check on that. I checked, and it was being discontinued. I switched themes immediately!
Wow! That is an event that will hopefully never happen on my blog. It would seem that you got it up and functional in good time and had a restful and good evening.
It all sounds quite distressing, Christy. You certainly kept it together well.
Oh no… Did you back do a back up?.. I usually back up once a month.. Love the relaxed manner you are coping..
I’ve been lucky enough not to experience a blog error. (touching wood right now) But your experience sounds awful. Glad you and your cat ended the day well… Especially the cat. Lol.
Glad you got through it ok.
You are amazing.
Hope it is a one time glitch.
You’re always a ray of sunshine, Christy! Cheers to you. :)
Yikes, what a hassle. Sounds like it’s kept you very busy, and it’s good when a nightmare like that turns into a bit of a learning curve. I’ve found the same when I’ve had hassles with my blog. I really like the new theme you’ve got here, looks really neat & the logo is cute! :)
Omg, I feel for you. I had the old crash over a year ago when plugins didn’t play nice. Glad to hear your onto the lemonade now. :) x
Glad you could solve the issue (and even got tasty dinner served 😉). I left you a note on Twitter. I’ll make sure to let you know if I feel there is an anomaly… at least to the eye, as it seems it was the case when I read the post you mention … your cat is gorgeous BTW 😘
Thank you for the lovely note. I am glad to help, at least in some way. ♥️
Layla, I bet my cat Charlotte and her along. They both have that ‘diva cat attitude’ 😆 🐈 Hope you are having a great Saturday, Chris. 😘👍
That’s a diva cat… comfirmed (***rasing water bowl up to her level! 😅😋) … they would be best friends, for sure. ♥️ many hugs, Chris 😘
