Switch off those who find computing a yawn!
Yesterday I thought I would take advantage of this enforced leisure and try to put up some navigation aids like a search button, list of recent posts and links to dated archives of posts. I managed to bring the whole website down!
I sweated through the evening, having most unsatisfactory email exchanges with a support person from my host service. He did not speak English as his first language and maybe this is why his replies came across as unhelpful and on occasions technically incomprehensible.
Eventually I suggested he restore the WordPress files from just after my last post. This has brought my blog and website back. But there are still important behind the scene problems (access to CPanel for computing buffs) which I’m going to have to hassle support about today. These problems mean I am not totally convinced the crash was my fault.
