I’ve only posted twice since June 18, 2010, because I lost the ability to function as the admin of A Conservative Lesbian — that is, publish posts, approve comments, upgrade my theme, etc. — when I upgraded to WordPress 3.0 using the “Upgrade” button in my Dashboard, which is the back end of WordPress where I compose posts and control the appearance of the blog. Resetting permissions, Googling, searching the WordPress support forum didn’t help and the assistance I wrote about on June 22 didn’t produce a lasting solution, for no apparent reason. I had not backed up my files and WordPress database before clicking the “Upgrade” button, so I could not revert to WordPress 2.9.2.
Finally I decided to appeal to Tammy Hanson, of A Mom and Her Blog, and put the problem in her capable hands. She determined the problem was in the database, which is where all of a WordPress blog’s posts and comments live. Tammy exported all the posts and comments, but we were both loathe to erase the database and then rebuild it and import all the data back into it. However, I have been wanting to be like the cool kids with no “www” and “/aclblog” subdirectories in the URL for A Conservative Lesbian for some time. To do that, A Conservative Lesbian has to be in its own hosting package, so I purchased one. Tammy is handling the move and I hope we’ll have the blog re-built by tomorrow afternoon. That’s why it looked different for awhile today.
The new address of A Conservative Lesbian is http://aconservativelesbian.com.
If you have commented here over the last two weeks, please do not be offended that your comments were not approved. I never saw them. All I received were e-mails notifying me that a comment had been left, but with no text at all and no e-mail address of the sender. No comments came into the blog, so nothing appeared in the Dashboard to approve.
I have some extremely important posts planned for the next few days, so be sure to check back tomorrow evening. Thank you, dear gentle readers, for sticking with me!
