If you had visited my blog in the past 8 hours, you might think I have gone mad. You might wonder why I kept changing the design of my blog every 10 seconds and messed up the posts, also the scariest part where my blog turned blank. Well, I was almost gone mad!
When I log in my wp-admin this morning, I thought I might be able to improve the design or download a new cool plugin when I updated my current theme, Atahualpa to the newer version, Atahualpa 3.6.1 and 3.6.4. I did it and thought I was going to able to enjoy a lot of new options, but little that I knew… my whole site turned blank…nothing left accept the bright white screen. I was shock!
The first thing my instinct told me was to backup my database. I tried to configure the theme and still…. Blank. I tried to reinstall and still…blank.
So I tried different themes… they’re work but suck! I couldn’t work with any theme, so I kept changing themes…like a hundred times in 1 hour.
I start googled the problem….just what I normally did when I faced any problem in life… bad hair day, how to fix the broken camera or baby vaccination schedule, etc…by the way…Thanks Mrs. Google!
So I tried to fix the problems one solution after another and began messing up my blog even more. Finally I found one gentleman’s comment in a forum suggested to remove the new version and reinstall the old version. Simply easy and why wouldn’t I think of this before… I was so determined to get the new thing and forgot to just go back and work on what’s already good for me.
I installed the old version back on and yeah!!! Everything was back, but the setting was gone. I was happy enough to got up from the chair, after many hours long intense work to mess up my own blog, and cooked some lunch. It is so silly to admit that I don’t even remember the way it was and how it looked like before. I don’t know which font I used before or even how to set the font I want.
So here I am…. Picking up the little pieces I have left and trying to build my site again. So from all of these, I’ve learned to day is to do more researches before doing something I am not mastered about. What I rebuilt now couldn’t be like the old one…I have to live with it and try to improve it.
Hope you would never have your whole blog turn blank!
