A couple of days ago I complained that WordPress had eaten my post but not the images I’d uploaded for the post.
Many of you were nice enough to try to shed some light on what might have happened.
- Hugh, from Hugh’s News and Views, suggested that the post was in quarantine pending a review by WordPress. Hugh’s a brilliant guy who knows just about everything about blogging but I didn’t write anything nasty enough to be censored. However, I checked and guess what? What he meant (which I misinterpreted) is that, if your site has been infected by malware, it will be quarantined until the malware is snuffed. Generally you will receive an email if this happens but not always. Especially if you have multiple email addresses like I do. So, thanks once again Hugh!
- A few bloggers suggested that I may not have saved the post before publishing it. That could well have been true.
- Yvonne at Priorhouse told me to turn on two factor log in asap. An excellent idea!
- Anon, blogging over at Anonymole – apocryphal alligators, suggested that I had two versions of the post open and saved the wrong draft. Also possible. I’m generally doing two things at once.
But instead of guessing, I have put a question into the Happiness Engineers. Thanks everyone for your help!
Okay guys, I’ve saved this post three times! So I’ll add one last thing – an image gallery of my friend’s artwork for your amusement. My favorite collage is Pep up your parts! What do you think it was an ad for?
Pressing publish and hoping I’m not sending y’all a blank post.
