I thought I was doing okay. With the help of friends like Hugh over at Hugh’s Views and News who has been kind enough to answer my tweets for help, I’ve muddled my way into a half-way decent blog. Or so I thought.
I was riding on a cloud of Me So Smart, until boom — the sky darkened and lightning knocked me on my ass.
Or, in words less theatric, I opened my blog from my phone and found that pictures were missing from some of my posts. I had no clue why. I had previewed the posts in question and the pictures were there. Now…gone! Urrgh! How had I screwed up?
You know this little screen, right?
The WordPress media screen. It holds all the images you’ve added to your posts.
Sure, I know the screen, you know the screen, we all know the freaking screen. But …
Did you know that deleting pictures from this media screen also deletes them from your posts?
Of course you did — I didn’t.
Too stupid for WordPress 🙂
