Trying to be clever…

25 Jun

Oops! I changed my e-mail address last night on WordPress. And what did it do to me? Well, it deleted all (oh yes, ALL) my subscriptions.

So…over the next few days I will try and visit you all and re-subscribe. If I´m a regular visitor/commenter to your site and I haven´t done this in the next week, I won´t be offended if you drop by and give me a gentle nudge….I don´t want to miss out on anything.

View from a local bar….you can see why we enjoy hanging around on their terrace in the summer!

Grumble, grumble….

    How annoying!

    Oh Dear! Computers think they are so clever.

    Oops! #*%%#@!

    Just because you changed your email…I’m sorry to hear about this. I hope it doesn’t cause too many issues. And I would love to have a drink there.

    • Chica Andaluza June 25, 2012 at 11:15 #

      It does great business (a family runs it) as the food is good. In summer they open up the terrace and outdoor kitchen and in winter it´s inside and big log fires!

    What a nuisance! Hope to ‘see’ you soon….when you can tear yourself away from that view!

    • Chica Andaluza June 25, 2012 at 11:16 #

      It´s rather lovely isn´t it…even when it is getting a bit dried out in the campo!

    Hmmm … I´m always filled with trepidation when changing things on my blog – just in case they disappear. I´ve just changed my theme here on WordPress – and when I´ve done this on previous occasions items in the sidebar have vanished without a trace. This time I noted everything down carefully so I could reproduce them and, as you might imagine, everything transferred across to the new theme perfectly! LOL

    • Chica Andaluza June 25, 2012 at 11:46 #

      I should have done what you did! Just didn´t think it would cause me a problem 😦

      • Marianne June 25, 2012 at 11:48 #

        No, I agree. Changing your email address shouldn´t have caused you a problem. It´s a warning to us all!

  7. Promenade Claire June 25, 2012 at 12:05 #

    Grumble away! I was going to change my email address on WP so thanks for the heads up! On the up side I’m presuming it’s a lovely sunny day where you are 🙂

    • Chica Andaluza June 25, 2012 at 12:09 #

      It´s hot (31 degrees) but overcast and humid…maybe a storm is on its way? I hear that the Olympic torch is coming your way on 17th July!

      • Promenade Claire June 25, 2012 at 12:21 #

        Yes, very exciting! We went to the Olympic Park yeserday – for a sneaky preview and I’m just trying to sort out the million photos so I can blog about it 🙂

  8. gardenfreshtomatoes June 25, 2012 at 12:23 #

    Thanks for the warning; I had been playing around with the idea of doing just that…
    The view is stunning from your terrace…How do you ever tear yourself away from it?

    • Chica Andaluza June 25, 2012 at 12:47 #

      Luckily it´s a little local bar which is a short drive away, so I am not distracted all the time. Just out of sight is the village pool which opens next week so I often go for a swim in the evening then a quick drink in the bar with all my co-swimmers!

  9. Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide June 25, 2012 at 13:28 #

    Oh no! Well, I know you’ll be by on Wednesday when you need your cocktail fix.:)

    • Chica Andaluza June 25, 2012 at 13:58 #

      I´ve already been by – how could I not?! Mind you, a cocktail right now to soothe my frazzled nerves would be nice 🙂

  10. TheDorsetFinca June 25, 2012 at 13:39 #

    Uh Oh!!!! Changing any details seems to be a mission fraught with possible disasters. I have been there!! x

    • Chica Andaluza June 25, 2012 at 13:59 #

      What a pain, mind you, it could have been worse I guess!

  11. Tandy June 25, 2012 at 14:05 #

    How funny is that NOT! Why on earth did WP think that they had to delete your subscriptions? And this also explains why I had to approve your comment 🙂

    • Chica Andaluza June 25, 2012 at 14:07 #

      Seems crazy as it was all still via my account! I am making your pita bread today…needs something nice to calm me down!

  12. thecompletecookbook June 25, 2012 at 16:26 #

    Oh no! What a bother Tanya. Think I would be having more of a froth than a grumble if it happened to me. Good luck with all the resubscribing.
    🙂 Mandy

    • Chica Andaluza June 25, 2012 at 19:55 #

      I think I frothed at first, then it subsided to a grumble!

  13. bitsandbreadcrumbs June 25, 2012 at 17:12 #

    You’re showing up in my subscribers and I saw your comment, so good here. But what a drag that is and it must be a new thing. I changed my email a few months after I started the blog and it didn’t do that. Thanks for the heads up!

    • Chica Andaluza June 25, 2012 at 19:55 #

      It was a pain, but I resubscribed to you this morning, so am glad that´s working!

  14. ChgoJohn June 25, 2012 at 17:14 #

    How ridiculous! Hang in there, Tanya.

  15. Terri at Time To Be Inspired June 25, 2012 at 17:25 #

    Hope everything gets straightened out quickly. I’ve been frustrated a few times when posts under costruction seem to just disappear, but thankfully not too often. Glad it works well most of the time!

    • Chica Andaluza June 25, 2012 at 19:56 #

      Yes, in the great scheme of things it´s not so bad 🙂

      • Terri at Time To Be Inspired June 25, 2012 at 22:23 #

        My daughter just did a class with an instructor who told the students, “If it isn’t life threatening, it’s trivial.” Words to live by!

  16. tedgriffith June 25, 2012 at 17:51 #

    Oh dear! I’ve been having my own wrestling match with WordPress recently, so I’ll keep my fingers crossed that everything works out. 🙂

    • Chica Andaluza June 25, 2012 at 19:56 #

      Oh dear, when things go wrong, they really do mess up!

  17. spree June 25, 2012 at 17:54 #

    aargh! that dang ripple effect! :-/

  18. Jed Gray (sportsglutton) June 25, 2012 at 18:03 #

    Ah the joys of…so much fun. 🙂

  19. idiosyncratic eye June 25, 2012 at 19:16 #

    Aw, that sucks! And that view made me soooo homesick! 🙂

    • Chica Andaluza June 25, 2012 at 19:58 #

      Sorry to make you homesick 😦 Where exactly was home?

      • idiosyncratic eye June 26, 2012 at 09:38 #

        Home is many places but in Spain, down on the coast around Fuengirola. My father spent his early childhood at Torremolinos in the 50s. 🙂

  20. restlessjo June 25, 2012 at 20:59 #

    Oops! Message received and understood, thanks.

  21. Yvette June 26, 2012 at 00:53 #

    It should be a new day by now, hope there’s more sunshine! x

    Welcome to my world! I offered to stay at my daughters house in town and mind their dog while they house sat their brothers appartment in Melbourne while he went to America…to cut a long story short I discovered that not only couldn’t I remember any of my passwords so that I could blog from their place, but that I also couldn’t work the remote control to save my life! I spent the entire week watching the BIO channel after the girls most thoughfully left the television tuned in to the food and lifestyle channel for me and I accidentally hit something, pressed a few more buttons and suddenly arrived at Bio…so there I stayed! Steve is currently giving me lessons in anti-technophobia remote control lessons…there goes my ludite ways! Bollocks to remote controls and bollocks to stupid WordPress eliminating your contacts…please feel free to return to theroadtoserendipity any time you like girl, you are ALWAYS welcome and should you feel up to showing me how to make a dress (or use the remote…there is only so many times that Steve will show me before he breaks down and cry’s and who wants to see a grown man cry?)…

    • Chica Andaluza June 26, 2012 at 05:03 #

      Oh dear. But I feel your pain. I too can never remember passwords when I am using other pcs and end up locking myself out of programmes and bank accounts. The tv is the same at my mum and dad´s – they seem to have about 8 remote controls and if you don´t use them in the right order…well, the same as you! Am heading over to subscribe now 🙂

  23. Michelle June 26, 2012 at 05:19 #

    Oh, so glad to know that others do things like that. I set up our facebook page, and got the url wrong (a typo!).

    • Chica Andaluza June 26, 2012 at 08:56 #

      Oops – well, I´m the Queen of Breaking Things at home, so at least I didn´t break WordPress!

  24. Just A Smidgen June 26, 2012 at 07:32 #

    Go figure.. I tried to change mine and it said waiting for “approval” and then it never happened. I guess now I’m glad, as I’d be in the same boat as you! Good luck with it all!

    • Chica Andaluza June 26, 2012 at 08:54 #

      I wonder what I did to be “approved” and not you?!

      • Just A Smidgen June 26, 2012 at 14:46 #

        ?? WordPress has gone crazy !!

      • Just A Smidgen June 26, 2012 at 14:47 #

        ?? WordPress has gone crazy !! I did take the time to put all my subscriptions to a new email address at the time.. so all updates go through my hotmail account not my main wordpress and personal account. Maybe try that?? Good luck!

      • Chica Andaluza June 26, 2012 at 14:48 #

        Good idea! Thanks 🙂 Will give this a go….

  25. Calico Stretch June 26, 2012 at 10:19 #

    Bugger! To put it succinctly :o)

  26. Charles June 26, 2012 at 10:20 #

    Oh no – what a pain in the rear end. Could you not have contacted their support and see if they can restore your subscriptions?

    • Chica Andaluza June 26, 2012 at 10:49 #

      Unfortunately, I wasn´t a sensible thinker! I think I´ve been round to most people now and re subscribed!

  27. Florence June 26, 2012 at 18:57 #

    Hi T, Sorry this happened to you but thanks for sharing.
    Regards Florence x

  28. Karen June 27, 2012 at 21:58 #

    I hope you went to the bar, sat on the terrace and had a lovely drink or two after what happened to you. I haven’t visited you in a few days to comment and I don’t have an excuse. Catching up…you are so clever with your sewing by the way.

    • Chica Andaluza June 28, 2012 at 12:02 #

      Yes, I think I did have a glass of wine to put the world back to rights!

I love to hear what you think, please leave me a comment!
