New year, new home

It’s been so long since my last blog again… 😦

After many issues with my host I have switched providers. Goodbye HostGator….. Hello WordPress.com! With dropping my selfhosted site for the first time I can focus on content… first a new theme! Exporting my blog and importing it to my new host was fairly easy. Lets see how it goes! 🙂

Plugin Errors with WordPress

I constantly neglect my personal WordPress, then once I get back to it and hit all the magic update buttons I normally break something. I have learned the best way to manually disable a plugin when you can no longer get to your site is by using your hosts phpMyAdmin to manually edit your database entry to disable all plugins. Then you can go to your admin and remove the bad plugin and re-enable the ones that are working.

If you have a plugin error all of your pages will load to just a text error saying there is an error in “/home/myaccount/public_html/wp-content/plugins/XXX/XXX.php on line #123″.

If you get this login to your host an access your phpMyAdmin or other mySQL database editor.

  1. Open the Database for wordpress
  2. Open the wp_options table
  3. Click on the Browse menu
  4. Search through the pages for the “active_plugins” option (was page 2 for me)
  5. Clear out the text the shows: “a:3:{i:0;s:39:”easy-adsense-lite/easy-adsense-lite.php”;i:1;s:49:”google-xml-sitemaps-v3-for-qtranslate/sitemap.php”;i:2;s:19:”jet”pack/jetpack.php”;}”
  6. All your plugins will now be disabled, try to login and update your plugins as needed.

Testing WordPress for iPhone 2.0

The is the 2nd time I’m writing my first post from WordPress of iPhone 2.0. First time it errored out when saving.. “Connection lost”.

Over all so far I like the layout.. Had an issue when first setting up app. I was getting NSXMLParserErrorDomain error 40 when adding my site info. I was getting other parser errors with the old version, that’s why I’ve been waiting for version 2.0 to come out. I had to disable all wordpress plugins & set the theme to the default. Then I was able to add my site info to the app. After testing the app I have now re-enabled my plugings and enabled my favorite theme one by one. After re-enabling every thing the app is still working 🙂

The new version is not an upgrade, if you have an old version, remove it then look for “wordpress 2” in the app store. The app has a landscape keyboard mode for typing posts. One suggestion is that the app save a local copy on the iPhone when you are editing a post, so if you get an error when saving you can retry. I’m most likely going to hit save often… Being the nut I am when I hit save in excel 10 times a minute.

Now that I have the WordPress iPhone app up and running I believe I’m going to love it!! 🙂   http://iphone.wordpress.org/
