Decided to move over here to keep from hijacking an intro topic. So I've tried several browsers and I'm having the same issue that started a while back to where i could not see anything new. I am not sure what happened. Anyway, I went to the site in Edge and could see my recent posts, but when I logged in I could not see them. So it leads me to believe it is something other than the browser. Not sure yet, still looking at it.
Thanks for the feedback, guys.
I was reading this about WordPress this morning:
WordPress is the most popular CMS in the world and is used by nearly 75 million websites. According to WordPress, more than 409 million people view more than 23.6 billion pages each month and users produce 69.5 million new posts and 46.8 million new comments every month.
CMS=-Content Management System (for anyone that doesn't know)
I also read that (supposedly) the most stable browser of them all, on both Windows and Mac, is Firefox. Here is a good support article about overcoming browser problems when going to WordPress sites: BROWSER ISSUES
Another problem is WP uses a lot of "plugins", one of which is our forum software (wpforo). (In all, I use about a dozen plugins for FFOF. Most sites use more than that, but I am trying to keep the plugins at a minimum to keep conflicts at a minimum.) Plugins are like software additions to the main WordPress software. Some plugins are built by the same folks who built WP, but most are built by 3rd party vendors. Plugins can sometimes cause conflicts with other plugins being used and/or browser rendering.
As far as I can tell, most viewers of FFOF have little or no problems viewing the main parts of the site (blog, practice resources, fiddle tune tabs, etc.). But, the forum is a different story.
WPforo, the forum on this site, is rated as one of the best of all the forum plugins, but it does have it's issues. I did look at other forum plugins, and they all seem to have their pros and cons. I also went to the support forums of some rated the better ones, and the problems seem to mimic those that wpforo have.
Switching to a new forum plugin creates two problems:
1. Will probably meet up with some of the same problems and/or new problems.
2. There is no tool to migrate from wpforo to a new forum plugin, so the present forum would have to be deleted and the new forum would start from scratch.
I will continue to look for better options, but right now I haven't found any.
If I can be of any help, you know you can always contact me. Now, that doesn't mean I'll always have an answer... 🙂 😮
So far-knock on wood- (as I knock on my head) I haven't noticed any problems. Everything seems to appear well. I usually use Chrome when browsing. Looks like a lot of work trying to keep a website altogether, Jim. I don't think I would have the patience for that. I know I don't have the talent for it, either! LOL
