WordPress app can redirect to wrong page (4 min read)

Wordpress app, problem, error, redirect, blog

WordPress app notice!

Is anyone here using the WordPress app on either tablet or phone? Well I am using it more than my Mac. The only thing I do on the Mac is writing. I have encountered some problems while using the app. I’ll explain what the problem.

Some people (like me) started out with a WordPress.com account (and a lot still have it) and this comes with a handy Reader where you can read, like, comment and follow all kinds of blogs. Super handy of course!

In my enthusiasm I switched to a self host at Blue host after 2 months. The great thing is I can add this self host site to the WordPress app and use all the tools inside WordPress EXCEPT the Reader which is quite important. Now what I’ve noticed is that sometimes when a notification pops up and I click on that person it sometimes occurs that it says “unable to retrieve posts” or “this blog doesn’t exist” while they of course do have a website, otherwise how could you like my post. What I do when this happens is, I go to my post, scroll to the comment section and THERE I click on the persons name/site. This redirects me to the correct and current website of that person and there I click follow.

My website

This is also the case with my website. Some people follow me on goingearthstyle.wordpress.com I understand that because when they click on me it probably redirects it to this. This however is my old WordPress.com account which I don’t use anymore. My page is goingearthstyle.com. If you get a like, comment or whatever from me it is possible that you end up on either one of these 2 pages of mine and this depends on what you click, my avatar, my name or something else.

I currently have 120 followers or something. So if you see my blog that has zero or around 10 followers it means that you’re on the wrong page 🙂 of course this isn’t that bad because this site is still up so it’s only logical that you click there to follow (so please just click that thing lol). What I do when I have around 10 followers, I migrate them from the WordPress.com account (which you’ve followed) to my Self host. The followers will disappear from the WordPress.com account but you are actually then following my current blog (This one). So no worries, you are all still following me and you still get an email (I think) when I post something new 🙂

If you don’t understand what this is all about it’s ok haha It’s pretty confusing I knowzzz. I just wanted to share the problem that I encountered in the WordPress app.

Do you ever use the WordPress app? Do you find it handy? Well thank you for reading and let me know what kind of problems you are running into 🙂

Netflix on a grey cloudy Saturday (1 min read)

netflix, stranger things, saturday

Netflix.

So it’s a grey and cloudy Saturday and it’s flippin’ cold outside (yes 6 degrees is already cold to me especially with an icy wind that blows lol), so time for Netflix. Recently I’ve started watching Stranger Things. Since a lot of people talked about it, I searched what it was about. I read the summary of Stranger Things and thought “finally something that stands out from other series. it’s belongs in the category Sciencefiction, Supernatural fiction, Mysteryfilm (and a bit of romance in between of course haha). I’m currently at episode 7 and I won’t share any spoilers. One episode is approximately 50 minutes. Currently on IMDb (Internet Movie Database) this series has a rating of 9/10 based on 214.132 people. I also rated it pretty high because it’s just cool like that.

Storyline.

“When a young boy disappears, his mother, a police chief, and his friends must confront terrifying forces in order to get him back.”

In a small town where everyone knows everyone, a peculiar incident starts a chain of events that leads to the disappearance of a child – which begins to tear at the fabric of an otherwise peaceful community. Dark government agencies and seemingly malevolent supernatural forces converge on the town, while a few locals begin to understand that there’s more going on than meets the eye.

The boy that goes missing is in a “losers” group in high school, these friends will do everything to get their friend back out of the “upside down world” (another dimension).

I’m hooked to this now. Do you ever watch series or films on Netflix? if so which ones? Have you got an opinion on Stranger Things, tell me 🙂

have a great weekend and don’t do things that I wouldn’t do (just kidding, just break all the rules).

I added so many photos to the USA page!

Chicago, united states of america, USA, photography

OH MY! SO MANY PHOTOS!

So I’ve hooked my hard drive to the mac to check some old(er) photos. Kind of a #throwbackthursday even though it’s Monday lol.

For the ones that have visited my website, you’ve noticed that I make pages in the menu about my travels instead of in a post. Now, I have a page of the USA but since it was a while ago I don’t exactly remember everything. So I found some photos of different years and just added them to the page for you to look at. Trust me it’s a lot! 150+ images!!

Check it out here 🙂
