Enjoying blogging again
I think that says it all.
@colinwalker It does indeed ? Very happy for you, Colin.
@smokey Thank you sir.
Great to see back writing regularly again, Colin—and enjoying it.
She's based in Bournemouth but we decided to some to Salisbury Cathedral as we've not been here for a while. It's a fantastic building.
@colinwalker This is a neat view.
(Out of curiousity, are you blocking the Micro.blog photo thumbnailer [photos.micro.blog] from accessing your photos? In my weekly recap grid, this photo ended up with a broken thumbnail that shows a 403 error “Request forbidden by administrative rules.” when I load the thumbnail directly, and I see that Sunlit shows all grey boxes in your profile view instead of thumbnails, too.)
@smokey Not Intentionally. I'm not sure why that happens. I need to dig in to the various roles and permissions in WordPress.
@smokey I've reset file & folder permissions, regenerated my .htaccess, checked a couple of plugins ?♂️
@colinwalker Ah, the dulcet tones of Wordpress troubleshooting. ? //@smokey
@colinwalker Thanks for checking. Perhaps that means there’s a bug on @manton’s end, then? I put up a test page and confirmed it’s not any general anti-hotlink rules or the like preventing access to your photos, but I’m still baffled by why photos.micro.blog is having this problem with all of your photos (per Sunlit profile view) but not any photos from anyone else.
@Bruce I don’t think we can blame WordPress for this one, although the verdict is still out.
@smokey @colinwalker I'm almost sure that this is an error coming from WordPress. Maybe an overly-paranoid security plugin of some kind.
@manton @smokey I wonder if it might even be at the host level ?♂️
@manton @smokey I’m pretty certain this is something being implemented by my host as I'm sure it didn’t used to happen on the previous one. I'll contact them tomorrow to ask.
@colinwalker I wonder why it’s only blocking photos.micro.blog? ?
@manton I see this is now happening to a number of people but giving a 502 Bad Gateway error instead.
