In case you hadn’t noticed, the theme on here has changed…
I upgraded the blog software earlier today, and it looked like everything was working correctly… themes, plugins, polls, avatars etc.
I had just finished patting myself on the back for a job well done, and that’s when I noticed a formatting problem…
The results of the last round had decided to double space themselves? I refreshed the page and the results were good again?
Ahh… minor issue, nothing to worry about, right?
Nope! The next link I clicked on resulted in an IE error screen (something about loosing data connection)! Multiple refreshes, same result! After cursing at the computer loudly, the page suddenly appeared!
Time to check out the log files… locating the cause of the data connection losses is easy, the apache child threads are Seg Faulting (crashing)… but no indication of why?
So it’s time to do some fault finding… I begin the task of disabling various plugins and testing each combination to see if the problem goes away. Everytime I thought I had finally found the cause, it would reappear!
Time for a break… played with the kids, had some dinner, watched some TV, bathed the kids, put them to bed.
I sit down in front of the computer and it suddenly dawns on me… the theme!
Turn on the default widget enabled theme, and Voila! No more problems!
Reenabled all the other plugins, and I’m still unable to break it again!
So for now, I’m stuck with this blandish theme… I’ll go theme hunting this weekend.
However, if any of my numerous visitors experience any problems, please leave a comment.
