Something I Learned about WordPress on NaBloPoMo #7

Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 23286 – 1171

Here’s the haps:

So, in yesterday’s post I mentioned the fact that I can import photos from my Google photos and it seemed to work just fine. The way it works is that WP imports your photo from Google to your media folder. Along the way it scales them down to a useful size and weight. By weight I mean it goes from 3 Mb to 387 Kb. This might be a useful tool along the way, we’ll have to see.

Oh, and the bear stopped by the other night but all the trash that might be interesting to him was in the bear-proof trashcan. He obviously tried to get into it, though.

    hi, herb! i saw your post in my WP reader, but it would not allow me to “like” or “comment” unless i came directly to your website. are these new changes? … or is my WP just acting-up again?

    the fact that you have bears large enough to push over the trash can is scary– unless of course, you turn it upside-down to make it bear-proof?

      I appreciate your stopping by and commenting and I’m really sorry that you are having trouble with that. I have tried to make my settings pretty loose so people can comment from anywhere but some people have trouble. I may have to switch themes to get it to work right, I don’t know.

      I have written about the bears we have here before in this category https://blog.herbthiel.com/category/yard-animals/bear/ Although I think the most informative post I did was probably https://blog.herbthiel.com/2019/08/14/becoming-unbearable/

      But to make a long story short I bough the bear-proof trash cans because at some times of the year they are ravenously hungry and will tear open a regular trash can and spread the contents everywhere and make a huge mess. And people food and especially people trash is really very bad for them.

      I had the same problem with the WP reader.

    I had the same problem on WP reader that the others describe.

    My problem is not bears but raccoons. After several years’ respite I had to re-start my habit of tying my trash can lid down with a bungee cord.

      That last one was me, I guess I need to log in, too.

      They are a nuisance, for sure.
