Sorting Out Website–Once and For All!
At last, after months, and months, I have been able to configure my website. Each time I tried (and failed), I got one of those irritating messages that said it was unresponsive and I could either Wait or Exit. I was tearing my hair out that I’d wasted half a day on this malarkey.
But No More 🙂
I eventually realised that it might be one of my plugins that was the culprit. They’ve been behind every other aggravation I’ve experienced, so when I thought about it, one or more of these were the obvious suspect.
And So It Proved
After I stripped out all of my plugins, barring the few that are self-controlled, I could configure. Amazed? Delighted? I’ll say. I might even dare to be more regular in my blogging in future.
Bright and Shiny
Repeat after me. I must not get new plugins in the manner of a person seeking happiness in retail therapy. It will only bring misery and pain. So these are my new rules to live by:
- only insert one new plugin at a time
- find out exactly how it works
- delete it the minute you suspect it of sabotage
- don’t agonise–ask a tech-savvy person for help
