Goodbye K2

Thursday, April 17th, 2008

After a week of flaky things happening, the K2 theme I’ve been using for a very long time now finally had to be removed.  I’m not sure what’s going on with that but there are some very serious issues with that theme all of the sudden.  Which is odd since nothing had changed on my site when the first problems with the comments first started happening.

About a week ago I was notified that my Comments weren’t working at all and the page was hanging.  I checked it out and disabled my plugins and all the normal troubleshooting ideas.  But the notion that this was even having a problem didn’t make sense because I hadn’t changed anything or installed anything new or even setup any new plugins.  It just broke.  I disabled the K2 theme and it magically started working again.  So I went out and downloaded the newest version and things were good.

Then a couple of days ago, I got a message saying that my Sidebar was broke.  Sure enough, the K2 Sidebar no longer worked and it defaulted to the basic Widget config.  Which is really odd because it worked in the morning and then stopped in the afternoon.  I hadn’t touched the site.  So again I downloaded the newest nightly build and it worked again.

Today Muse sends me an e-mail and says that no one is commenting because they can’t.  It’s broke again.  Yeah, disabling K2 fixed it again, so it stayed disabled this time.  So now, I’m using a new theme that I’m not terribly thrilled with but looks decent enough.  Try and find the Categories listing or use the Archives.  The Categories are hidden on the page and I didn’t even realize where they were for a long time.  The Archives page just doesn’t work.

Well, this will just have to do until I can spend some time looking for a decent theme that support WordPress 2.5 and has AJAX support and a working Live Archives.  Sometimes I really hate computers….

Theme madness

Now… if I could only find a theme I actually liked….

If you’ve noticed a new theme coming up each time you arrive here then you’re not alone. Sorry for any confusion. I’m still looking for my new alternative to K2. And so far… nothing. So I’ve downloaded the RC4 version from their nightly builds and see how it looks.

I just realized that all my pictures that I posted are broke.  *sigh*  I guess I need to go fix that too.

Leftover crap

Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

I’ve been finding some unexpected leftover crap from screwing up WordPress and having to re-install it.  For instance my blogroll was reset.  Didn’t realize that till just today.  Who are those people?  I’m fixing it now.

All the people who made it past the moderation test (I have to moderate each new commentor the first time they comment) now all have to moderated again.  So if you notice some unusual delay in your comments posting… that’s why.  Go ahead and comment and get it over with now.

My lovely K2 theme that made my site all nifty (shut up) is only in Release Candidate stage for the new WP2.3. version.  Not sure if I want to go all hog wild in customizing a RC version.  There’s been no new updates for a month.  I wonder if I should wait?  I also wonder if there’s a better alternative…?
