When your scheduled post messed up and it’s too late to change it because people already started liking and commenting, what’s your reaction?
Cuddle for treats, a short poem, should have posted today but as mention above, it’s too late.
Oh well, do check it out if you haven’t read it.
Have a great Thursday! 😘

WP is hinky as hell.
Hinky… I just learned a new word ❤️
I got that from NCIS. The character of Abby Sciuto used that word quite frequently for things being “off” or “goofy” or “f***** up.”
Haven’t seen a single episode of NCIS because when it was aired in Norway, we traveled a lot and got no time to follow a series. But I’ve been curious. I should give it a go soon.
It’ll be a lot to catch up on. It’s in its 18th season.
Oh, just keep editing!
I always go back and tweak –
it’s never really finished, only abandoned, Jessica
Nah, there’s nothing more to edit. It was the schedule that went wrong. Besides, now I got a fun post out of it (I hope) 😂
Hahah yep, had this happen before too – just totally forgot to change the title or add the actual text, but people start liking it anyway or commenting and asking what’s gone wrong… Oops. I just leave it too. C’est la vie! 😆 xx
So true! There’s nothing else to say in the face of accident, *shrug* c’est la vie! 😂
Ahhh….the dreaded WordPress bug…. 🤦♀️ I have had a post disappear before and post before I finished editing. So frustrating!
On a happier note, Happy Thanksgiving!🦃🍁
Thank you. I hope you’re having a wonderful thanksgiving too Renee 😁
Seriously time to squashed this bug. Hate bugs so much real or digital 😄
😁😁😁 here I come to read…☺️
Oh that one 😂 I read that already 😂
See, I wish I can make you unsee it 😂
Aka – why I never schedule posts xD
I could not deal with that happening so I just post-and-write 😅🤪
I also want to do that. But schedules saves me time, and there are time when I can’t be online at all but still want to post haha 😀
The WordPress gremlins are crawling out of the woodworks again.
Who ya gonna call?
So true. One of these days I’m gonna hunt them until they’re extinct 😂
It happens with me but due to wp bugs , I am just about publish or edit and entire post vanishes
😥 That’s sucks! Way more horrible than accidentally publishing it.
Hahaha…that’s my reaction too 🤪
And it happens to me too with this blog scheduling 🤣😂
Hahaha 😀 yes, if possible, it’s almost nice to make everyone who saw unsee it haha
That happens to me, too. Sometimes I’m in the middle of creating a post, when for some reason I accidentally hit a button that publishes it immediately. If I don’t notice it in time to unschedule, people start liking it and commenting. It’s kind of embarrassing.
😱 that’s worse than me!
Just pull it back into draft and finish it. I pull back, update, change art work all the time. The likes and comments are still there.
I sometimes do that when there’s only likes, but for some reason, I don’t feel to pull it back when there are comments haha 😀

What the hell, maybe that’s what I’ll do next time. It may strike those who commented, as odd, but maybe that’s all part of the fun of blogging.
By updating a blog post once in a while, you make sure that it retains its usefulness. In most cases, you don’t need to completely overhaul it, just update and maybe update or change the art.
Sounds like a good idea.
We smartasses don’t care how people view us anyway, so one odd thing to add to the list won’t make a difference 😂
That’s right. My goal is to confuse everybody, anyway. Or at least that’s what I say when I mess up.
It’s always nice to have alibi hehehe 🤭
I am forever going back to posts to update something or, worse, replace a missing video or picture. Linking back to a video or picture can get broken at any moment.
There are many posts I’ve gone back and deleted.
I guess a blogger’s job is never done.
In my case, no. It’s the web programmer in me. And, speaking of that, in WP’s desire to shove us (kicking and screaming) into this block editor bulls***, I’ve found that the Classic Editor is slowly losing functionality. It started two years ago when they did away with the “proofread” button. Now, if I don’t put in paragraph tags and line breaks, it all comes out wonky. Jerks.
I’ve given up on the Classic Editor. I understand that by 2022, it will no longer be supported.
The Block Editor does have a means for you to write code, if that’s what you want to do.
I’ve heard so much bad about it that, I’m clinging to Classic with nails & teeth.
It’s not too bad. It takes a little learning. You can do more with it than with Classic, but it’s also kind of clunky and quirky to work with. And there are a few things you can do with Classic, that you can’t do with the Block Editor.
For instance? School me, Tipster.
Oh no, I hate teaching computer to people. They never get it, and I’m lousy at teaching anyway, and I hate it. However, here is a youtube video that I found very helpful:
I do that, too…all the time. If if is a big enough change, I put a notice at the top that says “Update.”
