A plea from your fellow sister-in-blog. Yes, your sibster.
If you’re going to have a blog, spend some time understanding your admin functions. This goes for me too!
The other day, I had to spend time figuring out where WordPress moved some things that I used to find elsewhere. (I had taken about a year off from blogging) so my dashboard changed radically and became VERY BUSY with tons of added functions so to find the SPAM – well, I couldn’t find it right away…or for a while. After much searching, I finally found it (click on Dashboard and then click on comments, and then you’ll see approved, spam, trash options) and released some “good comments” that were filtered as SPAM. Had I been checking this regularly, I would have saved one of my blogging pals some grief. We laughed about it later…
Seriously, what is the deal with people commenting on your site, or linking their post to a challenge, you take the time to click their page or post…
just to get
That page no longer exists or has been deleted? – really because they just commented or liked my post? On one blogger, I actually went above and beyond, because I couldn’t figure out how they commented without a site. I Discovered, they created one wordpress account linked to a particular site, but changed sites and didn’t update their personal account with the new web address. So every time they comment on a site, if someone clicks their name/profile to visit their site, you get the no page or account has been deleted. If this is you…please STOP go to your Admin/USERS button, Personal settings – scroll to the bottom clear the address to your deleted site, and save the new site address. (also, update your MY profile with what websites you have -remove the deleted) See below example. Website automatically links when you make comments!
moving on… today, I hit a challenge board to see what other bloggers are posting…What?
404 error message? Or something like below– how did they end up linking to the challenge? Or they linked and then deleted their post? (why?)
I’ve come across a lot of these lately. It’s frustrating. Please, if you want others to visit your site, ensure your links work!
P.S. Love you all, but you’re driving your sister-in-blog absolutely crazy! (like my new term? SIB for short? And brother-in-blog – BIB for short – so fitting!)
I’ll have to add that to my side bar vocabulary – with my “Grrs” (bloggers) icon.
That is all for now, my grrrs. Carry on!
