I’ve written over 300 Posts on my WordPress blogs and I’ve never had a problem with editing until a few weeks ago when I discovered the JUSTIFY and UNDERLINE icons were removed from the editor bar. I wrote to WordPress Support and asked where they had put them. It took a couple of emails to find out that there is a link right above the title when writing a post which says:

 “There’s an easier way to create on WordPress.com. Switch to the improved editor.”

Thanks to a very helpful member of the WordPress Support team, Shawna Roberts, I have managed to get resolution to a problem I have failed to understand for some time. Unfortunately, though, although I have discovered what the problem is, WordPress is, at this time, unable to solve it.

So the issue is understood and has been resolved but the problem has not been solved. Continue reading How to resolve a WordPress problem that can’t be solved.

If you are new or relatively new to blogging, having to learn the ins and outs of how WordPress works, managing the blog itself, the technical aspects plus integrating social media and fielding the myriad emails that fly in all day and every day, you will appreciate how undeniably daunting it is. I learned in a short time to respect all the part-time bloggers who have full-time jobs. If you are one, honestly, I really admire you. How do you do it? I still feel like I am back at college reading for a degree. Having said all that it is one of the most exciting, challenging and invigorating projects I have ever undertaken.

Many of us WordPress bloggers got a shock when our beloved Zemanta plug-in disappeared from our blogs without warning a few days ago. I was writing a post when I thought ‘Hang on, something is missing here.’

When I realised what it was I immediately wrote to WP Support who have been absent for approximately 2 weeks and received this information today. Continue reading Why did Zemanta disappear?

Welcome to JAMOROKI – The video

I thought it was about time you all had a good look and listen to me so I worked my socks off to find out how to produce and upload a little video. Yes, I know, it’s a big gamble but I’m a big boy now so I figured it was worth the risk.

It took me less than two days to become a Film Producer, Director, Actor, Cameraman, Sound Engineer and Script Writer. Plus I had to learn the technicalities of video creation, uploading to my brand new YouTube video station and embedding into my blog. So even if the end result is not quite Steven Spielberg quality it was a monumental achievement for an old fart like me.

As you read this take a right turn and there it is at the top of my sidebar. By the way, unless you’re not sure, the vocals have travelled a bit, from West-Country England, through South Africa to Thailand. Just turn the volume up and you should be able to pick out a few recognisable words or utterances.
