about those gremlins….

Miraculously, the site’s glitches (eg no title banner, no photo beside the banner, videos not working, smaller fonts, etc) have disappeared for some of you today – I have no idea why!

I just got this from WordPress Support: “I am really sorry, but I was unable to locate any issues in your blog. It would be interesting to ask those of your visitors who experience these issues which ISP they are using. This would allow us to check if the problem might be related to a corrupted cache issue at the ISP level. We are still digging on our side while waiting for your reply.”

No problem at all if you don’t want to say which ISP you’re using – if you’re okay with it, I’ll pass on the info to WordPress. Thank you.

    Everything is back for me. It came and went over the weekend, lol, but all is well now. Hopefully, it will hold, but I’m happy as long as I can see the wonderful videos, pics and converse with the TOD family. Thanks Chips for working so hard on this and I hope everyone’s problems are straightened out soon.

    it could be the script or the java script maybe and or it takes time to video’s to load as a person visit your website. Let’s see if you turn off your script and see what happens.

    I don’t think it is with you, Chipsticks because most of us aren’t having problems. I’ve had problems with sites before and found out it was my own plug ins not being updated. Like getting automatic updates with IE, but I didn’t have Adobe Flash update automatically. I have Windows XP and it doesn’t give an alert telling me I have things out of sync.

      Thanks Suzanne, it’s a techy minefield – I’m lost!

        My problem was not being able to see videos — and it was just certain places not all of them. It took a very long time and visiting several forums to get help before I found out the problem. Earlier versions of IE would give me an alert and ask me if I wanted to update, but IE didn’t. Because IE had taken care of it before I didn’t even know not being in sync with updates could cause a problem.

          Thanks Suzanne, I’d read alright that earlier versions of IE were having big problems with WordPress sites. I’m having trouble with Adobe Flash at the moment – there’s always someting!

    Oh my goodness Chips….it is working normally again on my IPad! This is the first in a while! You’re back baby! Crossing my fingers this is the end to the gremlins! BTW, I never tried to change anything on this IPad to try and fix the situation nor did I update the browser. A miracle! 😉

    The title banner is back for me, Chips. It had dissapeared for a while.

    How refreshing! Looks great today! I don’t see the nice picture on the side of the banner of President Obama smiling and straightening his tie. Love Love this site. Many thanks!

      I DO see the pic of straightening the tie today. I had completely forgotten that that pic was suppose to be there during the days of the messed up site.

        I’m happy for you! It is such a nice picture. Thanks for letting me know. I thought that maybe it just wasn’t there anymore. So, now I can look forward to maybe getting it back!
