Try and Try it Again!

Dear friends, family, wonderful members here at Wealthy Affiliate!

It's been said, 'where there's a will, there's a WAy!'

In the feature image ... it shows 404, doesn't it?

What does 404 mean anyway? .... have you seen it on occasion when working on-line, especially when trying to access a website? ...

Well, it's simply explained in Wikipedia :

. . . 404 stands for or could represent "HTTP 404, 404 Not Found, 404, Page Not Found, or Server Not Found" equating to an error message that is a Hypertext Transfer Protocol standard response code."

... "This occurs in computer network communications, to indicate that the browser was able to communicate with a given server, but the server could not find what was requested."

Actually, I didn't start off this blog post to talk about 404 errors. . . admittedly, not a real swell techie-person here ... honest!

. . . however, it's a wee story or analogy that can be used to say ---

----- Try and try it Again, yes, play it again, and again! -----

An OOPs here .... ok double imaging, seeing double! .... that's just a keyboarding quirk! ...

Does the technical aspects of building your website drive you wild here?

Never fear, for Super Site Support is here!

And, the Live Jay Shows, weekly Friday webinars are amazing ... check out his replays that are all available via the Live Events icon located at the far left hand side margin under the Dashboard of the WA platform...

... Jay takes us by the hand and walks through some of the most technical aspects step by step!

Awesome work!

Plus, in addition to the step by step training with Kyle, we have on hand magnifico members who I might coin 'Resident Techie Gurus' who might be of assistance with their specialized training on offer to all members...

If you'd like to know, then, perhaps a lil' birdie friend might just whisper to you their usernames through the grapevine if asked nicely .... chuckles ....

So it's all good with the tools and resources available to members here.... a platform full of goodies for everyone....

There's always more than one WAy to do something to get a good result ... try it differently ... approach it in another way ... present your question to the wider WA community of members who are available 24/7 around the world ... ask a friend .... and do it all again ....

All to say, keep at it, Try and Try it A-GAIN! ...

Enjoy a superb week ahead .... > > >

.... and by the way, feel free to 'name drop' your favorite techie buddy here in the reply box below ....

thanks kindly . . .

Very true, I have told my daughter to try again before and she said well it didn't work, what do you want me to do? I said "try again"! If you simply give up just because a couple tries didn't've simply given up too soon. It is hard to tell yourself that in some situations, but all situations are the same......just don't give up try it a different way. Thank you for the post it was great!

hi Tawny ... good to see you here today! ....

yes, you've done the right thing teaching your daughter the lesson of perseverance or 'stick-it-ness!' ... as that is a factor for success in life ...

and yes, try it differently, look at it from a different angle and try it again ... after all, Edison tried something like 99x before finding the light bulb, i think ... he discovered 98 ways that it didn't work! ... lol ...

keep well, stay strong, all the best ... cheerio ... ⭐️😊⭐️...

Tech problems? Not me. I simply wait for the paint on the floor to dry before i walk away from the corner. Funny, but after 2 coats of paint on the floor, it seems I still managed to miss that spot in the corner. Guess I'll call a painter. Same with tehcie schtuff.

Most of the time they do not specify which 404 reason, but here is a list (from Wikipedia) of possibilities. Not to mention deliberate "404's" which are a hidden form of censorship we see a lot of lately.

Microsoft's IIS 7.0, IIS 7.5, and IIS 8.0 servers define the following HTTP substatus codes to indicate a more specific cause of a 404 error:

404.0 – Not found.
404.1 – Site Not Found.
404.2 – ISAPI or CGI restriction.
404.3 – MIME type restriction.
404.4 – No handler configured.
404.5 – Denied by request filtering configuration.
404.6 – Verb denied.
404.7 – File extension denied.
404.8 – Hidden namespace.
404.9 – File attribute hidden.
404.10 – Request header too long.
404.11 – Request contains double escape sequence.
404.12 – Request contains high-bit characters.
404.13 – Content length too large.
404.14 – Request URL too long.
404.15 – Query string too long.
404.16 – DAV request sent to the static file handler.
404.17 – Dynamic content mapped to the static file handler via a wildcard MIME mapping.
404.18 – Query string sequence denied.
404.19 – Denied by filtering rule.
404.20 – Too Many URL Segments.
