Happy New Year 7


And I guess I get to spend it troubleshooting. For starts, I’ve changed the appearnance theme back to the default. I’ll keep poking at this until I figure out what broke IE, but the blog works in IE now.

That rules out that any of my plugins are causing it, so it’s one of the edits I made in one of the *.php files.

    I think I’ve shot the trouble. The comments.php file had gone west. I’m posting this from Internet Explorer 6.x. Now I’ll click “Submit” and see if it works.

    That was hardly the ordeal I feared it would be. Now I’m going to restore my sidebar.php and see what happens.

    Everything appears to be working now. Got to restore the RSS feed from Phillybits and it should be back to normal.

    This comment is done from IE, but on Steve’s recommendation, I did download Opera & Firefox. I do have to keep IE, however, because the password program I have in IE doesn’t appear to work in either of the others. This comment is done from IE.

    Thanks for the feedback. I’m glad to know it worked for someone else.

    Looking good from IE, Frank.

    It was easier than I feared. I was afraid I was going to have to go through my sidebar.php file, which I’ve edited the heck out of, line by line.

    I started by dropping the *.php files from the default theme into the directory one by one, and, as soon as I dropped in “comments.php” (which I haven’t edited, or at least don’t remember editing), the problem went away. In the meantime, though, I’d over-written my sidebar.php, so I restored from the CD backup I made in November.

    Then I backed up the website and the blog database to CD.

    This was too much like what I do at work.
