The pain of changing WordPress themes….
The past week saw my traffic drop tremendously after I changed my blog theme to Feedoo. For a while there, I thought my blog was hacked because I couldn’t seem to access it from our office, gym (Fitness First) and the mall branch of Netopia. This site just drew a blank when I typed my URL.
On the other hand, it was weird because I was able to view it from my house and some of my other friends’ peecees. My web host Yuga and I got into a discussion and he surmised that it was a DNS problem with users subscribing to PLDT My DSL, something which had plagued other bloggers before.
I was ready to go into the throes of depression until I talked with a technician of Netopia in SM Sucat. When I told him that I couldn’t view my blog in their web cafe, he tested the site on Firefox and my blog showed up. Which led him to conclude that it wasn’t some DNS problem affecting me. It was just that my blog theme wasn’t customized for IE.
So now, after carrying Origami for years, my SweetHeart has been very sweet enough to upload me this new theme called Syrup. I like it because it is no-frills and has very clean lines. Tested it now in IE version 7 and it still has its flaws. If you’re using browsers other than IE or Firefox, would appreciate your telling me how it goes.
