WordPress Loading problems.

I think I have found a way around the problems of loading WordPress sites here in Oman thanks to a Firefox Add-on   :)

A happy bunny again:  it means I do not need to keep pasting https as a prefix on every site I read.

Firefox – I am sorry for all the nasty things I have said sometimes when updates make my  life hard.




SentinelsThese are growing on the remains of a rather large man-made stone mound, in fact the area has signs of habitation going back 2 or 3 thousand years.

My site is still not loading correctly.

Site is still not loading correctly – it would seem that my provider (Omantel) has taken a dislike to something on WordPress: they are applying some form of filtering.


Problems opening theme page: Episode 2.

I am still not able to open WordPress pages without adding (https) in front of every page: a real pain when I wish to view others sites.
My provider has not been much help as it is only WordPress  that has the problem ??!! – very strange: the only consolation is that I am not alone with this issue,  others here in Oman have the same problem and it started on the same day.  Now the worm in the back of my mind says “WordPress new edit page was started about this time ??”
The WordPress ‘Happiness Engineer “rachelmcr” has been a great help – found things in Firefox programme I didn’t know existed  :)

Quote from: The Restaurant at the End of the Universe – Douglas Adams.

Replace the word Universe with computer…………

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.


Normality will resume I hope.

Problems opening theme page.

Problems opening theme page – actually anyone’s WordPress page: very strange as the theme construction is just not there.

Ho well, with luck the ‘Happiness Engineers’ will sort out what is going on: two computers, one win8 the other win7 also a Samsung tab on Wi-Fi, using Firefox or Windows Explorer, all show the same problem.

With luck this post will look ok as preview puts it all down one side of the page, my theme is just not there.

In the meantime here are a few from my favourite mountain:
