Notice The Construction?

Having a Great Time…

Old web site just finally gave up the ghost, and this was the theme I will be using for Smith’s Fiction web site, so just went and got it for this. Thankfully I got my blog up so I didn’t miss my streak.

So some group mind help.

Even with this new theme, every time I save a post it says “Updating Failed” so does anyone have any idea what I am missing. The post is saved fine, and then when I go to publish it, it says “Publishing Failed” even though it published fine.

Anyone got any idea what I am missing? More than likely a plug-in of some sort. Just weird. And not listed on any of the common Word Press error sites.

So thanks for the patience on this construction. Will take me a while to get everything in place and working, I hope. So now I will hit publish on this, it will say Publishing Failed, in a pink band across this post in edit mode, but it will be published. Strange, strange things.

    Well, the blunt force way of figuring it out is to disable all your plug-ins and publish or update a post and see what happens. If it goes through fine, you know it’s one of the plug-ins. If not, I’d install another theme — maybe one of the WordPress themes — and try again.

      Just did the theme thing, including a pro version of one of them, all of them had the same issue, so thinking I am missing a plug in. But will try the other way. Thanks!

    Gotta say that the dead anorexic girl is pretty off putting. Besides that image the new theme seems nice

    If you’re using the latest version of WordPress (i.e. 5.something) then I would try installing a plug-in called “Classic Editor”. Make the classic editor your default editor and see if that resolves the problem.

    If it does, then the underlying problem is a conflict between the theme and the editor.

    When I first came here, I thought I accidentally came to someone else site.

    I liked this theme.

      Don’t know because I like the classic editor a ton better than the new block style, so haven’t gone back to test the other way.

    Just had a notion to visit this site for the first time in I don’t know when and see how you’re doing, so the theme is brand new to me. Looks good. Sleek and minimalistic. Lots of stuff on the sidebar, though, which is a little distracting, especially all those class dates.
