ADMIN: Response to Internet Explorer and Other Browser issues

Hi guests,

Thank you all so much for bringing this to my attention. I have not been ignoring you and appreciate the time you take to write comments here. WordPress customer support is great, but the LiveChat option only works during the weekday. On weekends, I depend on email support and browsing through their help topics.

It took me a little while to figure out what options to try, but I finally decided to use the help topics. That way I can share the answers and links here with you. Then you can try the suggestions and follow up on your own.

Internet Explorer & Browsers

The main issue coming up lately is compatibility issues with Internet Explorer.

WordPress support says that only Internet Explorer 11 and later is supported now. Internet Explorer 10 and earlier version have known compatibility issues with WordPress. Here is the link to the WordPress Support article.

WordPress also offers this link to a list of supported Internet browsers with download links to the latest versions of each browser. Microsoft Edge, Safari, Mozilla, Opera, and Internet Explorer 11 are some of the browsers on that list.

My Learning Curve with Gutenberg Editor

Other issues, especially for posts with images, are part of my learning curve with the new WordPress Gutenberg Editor. I’m still learning how to add and embed photos into my posts without causing HTML errors. Yes, using a visual editor can cause problems like this.

With my post from earlier today, I had to publish a couple updates because I missed a couple minor spelling errors. In the process of updating the site, WordPress kindly let me know that two sections of my content had multiple HTML code errors.

In fact, WordPress gave me the option of viewing the HTML code that created the visual image and highlighted the errors in RED.

Solution? change the types of block I used for the text and images.

Thanks again for commenting and informing me about content errors. That helps me learn from my mistakes and create a checklist of what to look for before I publish a post in the future.

Thanks for reading

ADMIN: Technical Issues (Potential & Actual)

Viewing Issues / Slow Page Uploads

It’s come to my attention that there have been some issues with slow page uploads and trying to navigate the website/blog posts.

Sorry about that.  I had some issues earlier in December/January when WordPress wouldn’t let me in  to the main website on Google Chrome and Safari, but thought they had been resolved.

Holidays are always busy and stressful, so not much has been updated on the static pages.  I will try and troubleshoot the problem on a free weekend, but please remember that this is a FREE website and blog run by a person with limited e-skills.  And not having a paid account limits what resources are available to fix slow page uploads.

SPAM and comments

I don’t check the comments directly often.  Most of  the time, the alerts link informs me if someone makes a comment or “likes” a post, etc.

If it’s not already in the blog rules (and I will check  to make the update), please do not include websites or links in your comments unless the topics are directly related to resources or other relevant blogs here.  

Anything else will be considered SPAM from now on and not approved to show in the comments sections.

This is to protect and preserve the SAFETY, ANONYMITY, & CREDIBILITY of this website, the blog, and the guests who visit.

Resources

Most of my resources are the same as before.  I am looking into some new alternatives and information, but the sources need to be verified or fact checked first.  I’m also unsure how to graphically represent strategies like gratitude, laughter, and so on on Pinterest.

The other pages have been designed to need minimal updates and be relevant over long periods of time.  Only the blog gets regular updates.

Thank you

I appreciate all comments and feedback.  All suggestions for improving the website are taken into consideration.  Thanks to people who point out or let me know when something isn’t working properly too.

I don’t look at the website from the reader view and am grateful to my guests for caring enough to inform me of such occurrences.

Thanks for reading.
