Never Time To Do It Right, But, Always Time To Do It Over.
Have you ever noticed that when you are moving along smoothly, something always seems to trip you up?
I was doing ok on my SAC and then it happened! My blog post did not load properly when I published it.
This big white spot appeared where text used to be and my Featured Image was tight up against my header. I had no Idea why it happened. All I can say is....
Don't Copy And PasteText From WP Editor To Site Comments & Publish
It doesn't work, I don't exactly know why, but don't do it! What a mess.
There it was, PUBLISHED for the whole world to see!!! UGH!
I went to bed! Maybe if I sleep on it, I will get a wizard to appear in my dreams and fix it.
No wizard showed up, sigh!
So, the next morning I posted a question in WA and members came to help, but they didn't know quite what to do with my mess I created!
I was a day and a half of troubleshooting, disabling plugins, inserting and deleting images, over and over! I was discusted, tired, frustrated, depressed...you name it!
I was almost resigned to thinking I was going to have to retype the entire post, when I stumbled on how to fix it!
I Found IT !!
When I went into text mode of our WP editor, and looked at the code for my introduction, there it was! A line of code was inserted on top ....BEFORE the introduction paragraph!
---------------blaaah> Content intro
I am thinking, maybe that HI doesnt belong in there, and is stopping the word wrap around my image. And Nothing was showing in the visual side of the editor, The BIG WHITE SPACE!!
Now I am NOT a programmer, but I thought ...why not try to delete that little snippet
and see what happens? So I copied the code first, and pasted it into my notepad...just in case it was not the problem, I could paste it back in....UREAKA!
I was SO relieved, I just save my 2000 word post!! Whew!
I don't know if you followed all that, but that was my "Dog ate my homework" excuse for getting a bit behind this week! That was my #3 article, and now I need to get moving. 8 more for the month!!
I know I will use Google Docs (editor has more features) to write, then paste it into site content!
Anyone else have a problem like that?
Onward and upward,
