Technical difficulties?

This is one of those posts that will certainly be edited out when the book is created from these disjointed entries.

I have no sidebar. No archives. No prior posts. No profile. No links (and I haven't read Gil Thorp yet this morning).

And the blog cuts off about two and half entries down the page. And I didn't do do anything since the last time I was here (yesterday) that can account for this. (Doesn't that sound like a whiny -- and probably guilty-of-something kid? No, Mom, I didn't do anything!)

The theory is that when I publish this everything will come back, just as it was before.

Hey, I can dream, can't I?

Does this ever happen to your blog? And how do you fix it when it does?

Give the computer a good kick and switch off.

That must have worked (the good kick part) because it seems fine now!

The Captain's suggestions are usually practical.

But I didn't kick the machine -- not this time, anyway -- honest!

Now that would make anyone a curmudgeon! Did you press the re-load button? It's simplistic and probably won't work, but that's the only thing I know to do.

It may be that baseball picture on your last post that caused it. I am using firefox so it looks fine to me as I imagine it does everyone else using FF. You must be using internet explorer?

What usually happens is when you post a picture, in the body of your post, FF will adjust to its size, but IE won't. So those,viewing it with IE will not see your sidebar. It has been shamed to the bottim of your page. Try deleting your baseball picture and see if that fixes it. Or just download FF and use it then you don't have to worry about it.

Something must have worked out...it looks good to me. And i'm glad for that.

It looks good for me in Firefox. Usually Internet Explorer is harder when it comes to blog templates.

When your sidebar shifts to the bottom of the page, it usually is because something in your sidebar was too wide.

How about saving your template and launching on another site, then relaunching on this. I've done this a few times.

Or switch to WordPress like me...

happens when i try to tinker with the template, that's why mostly i don't. it's all a mystery, like the tv. :)

rdl said...

or how bout the refresh button, or is that too easy?? an answer? i didn't know it updated for the longest time.

The Curmudgeon said...

The problem was caused by my messing around with the template -- something to do with the Technorati button which I learned about from following a link on one of patry francis' recent posts. I think everything's all better now (*cue close-up on crossed fingers*).

And rdl: you're not the only one who didn't grasp the mysteries of the "refresh" button -- and I'll bet (at least I hope) we're not the only two.
