It’s the only way to be sure.
So, soldiers, here’s the scoop. I thought I got rid of the nasty bug causing site redirect issues and the like last time, but apparently I’ve yet to root out the Queen Alien, so the issues have returned. I spent some time searching around but to no avail, and since I don’t want to waste my time on this crap when I’ve got stories to write and pictures to draw and WoW to play, (to paraphrase a wise man, “I’ve had it with these motherfrackin’ snakes on this motherfrackin’ plane”) I’m gonna attempt something crazy.
Namely, I’m gonna back everything up, delete EVERYTHING, and reinstall WordPress from scratch.
Then I’ll make all my passwords like three times longer, which means they’ll probably take about ten minutes to type out, but ya know.
If THAT doesn’t fix the problem, then… well, I’ll probably lose it, but we’ll deal with it when we get there.
AS SUCH, you may, over the course of the next few hours/days/whatnot see reduced site functionality, missing themes, the site not loading entirely, random 404s, etc. while I try my best to completely reboot the blog. All comments and posts, as well as the entire site itself, will be backed up in multiple ways so I can always revert it if I mess something up entirely.
Until then, wish me luck– I’m takin’ this thing to the airlock.
