O.M.Gosh! I killed one of my new blogs a second time!
I used to have to make changes to my old WP blog manually through text editors and FTP programs. But now everything is automated, and I’m having more problems with the new automated way than I did doing it the old-fashioned manual way. I’m getting the same feeling as when my friend would ask me to help her with her site that she’d made with M$FrontPage back when I used to hand-code/tweak.
The last time I bought a new vehicle, I got strange looks from the dealer because I refused automatic windows — I drive over a lot of bridges, depending on where I’m working. I can’t stand drive over bridges with automatic windows unless I lower them enough to crawl out of before getting on the bridge. Weird, I know. I don’t think I could kick out a window, but I know I could manually open one if I ended up in water somehow.
Back to my Money Making Experiment blog; here’s my comment on the theme maker’s blog:
Hi, I had a new blog with a different theme I liked, but after trying to monetize with ads, I checked how it looked in IE, OMG!
So I keyworded ‘wordpress themes monetized ads’ and after clicking around through 4 blogs with monetized wp themes, AND checking live demos in IE, I decide on this theme.
I DL and unzip, then unzipped the required plugins and uploaded those into my hosts plugins directory.
Then I activated the 3 new plugins in WP admin.
And the theme is being uploaded into the themes directory during this time.
So after activating plugins, and seeing that the theme upload is finished, I go though admin to DESIGNS, and activate this theme.
I have no site, nor do I have an Admin area!!
To make sure the above is very clear:
After successfully activating the required plugins, and FTP’ing the theme to the themes directory — I activated this theme in the designs section of admin panel, and that was the last I saw of my site — both the actual site, as well as the admin panel.
I had not made the code changes from this post yet, because I was hoping to make those after activating the theme. I don’t know if that’s what caused my blog to ‘disappear’ or not 8^)
Everything appears normal through FTP, and I did NOT change any permissions anywhere, just in case you’re wondering =D
Please advise what I did wrong, and how to correct it, thanks so much.
