Have You Had Any Problems Accessing the Blog?

Published in: News

Have you had any problems accessing the blog?

Hi, ladies. Have you noticed any problems lately accessing MBB? Any weird errors or hangups? The past couple of days have been filled with technical challenges for me. Day before yesterday I attempted to upgrade the software I use, which is called WordPress, because of this warning about a new worm, which is like a virus that in this case infects blogs.


I thought things went well, but now I’m not so sure. A couple of you have emailed or commented to report glitches.


If you’re getting page errors or other weirdness when you visit, would you mind leaving a comment or sending me a note to let me know? Any details would help, like the type of web browser you’re using (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.), a description of the error, and approximately when the glitch occurred.

It’s either due to the WordPress upgrade, a new caching plugin I installed (to speed things up) or Godaddy (the company that hosts the blog, like its landlord). If I can figure out what’s causing the problems, maybe I can undo the change.

Thanks a lot for your help.

    Nope, I haven’t had any problems. Then again, my internet has been on the fritz in general (damn Comcast). I’ve been going between playing with Zena, attempting to write an essay from hell (really, I have huge problems writing personal essays), walking Zena and putting warm compresses on my eyes as both decided to have stys (icky and painful) so I’ve been on the net very little today. Warm compresses, ibuprofen and eye drops work wonders for stys.

    P.S. Tabs looks so cute sleeping! Zena’s sleeping in quite the same position as Tabs, lol.

    The last day or so I’ve had problems with my browser freezing when I’m on MBB (and only MBB). I’m using IE v.8.

    And thanks to your reviews I just picked up Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer and I *love* it!

  4. Sarah says:

    I had problems with the pages loading, usually I just load all your posts in separate windows (since I use google reader) and none of them were coming up today. They just kept researching for the page.

    I was at work, so I think it was Internet Explorer 6? It’s a super old version.

  5. marmar says:

    No problems on my side lately. Btw just noticed the bar at the bottom rofl Love it!

  6. Alexzandra says:

    Recently, your pages have been loading very slowly for me, and when I try to scroll to the bottom of them they get very laggy, almost as if they want to freeze up.

    I use Firefox, and usually view your blog in Google reader, and then open individual posts in separate tabs.

  7. Maggie says:

    Yes, it has been loading a little slow. Sometimes it wouldn’t load at all and I would have to refresh the page and retry and all the junk. I use Google Chrome (it’s kick arse!) and usually it’s very fast.

    I hope the glitch will be solved soon! 🙂

  8. Marisol says:

    It’s been working great for me. I usually view it on Safari 4.0.3 & it has come up ok on my Google Reader.

    Hi Karen,
    Yes, i had some problems with your website, like two days ago i came in here and my antivirus told that my pc got infected with a trojan oe virus but it caught it before any damage. That whole day every time i came in here it said the same thing ( i wanted to make sure it was your site or something else) and but yesterday and today nothing has happened (i use internet explorer)

    By the way,Love your site!!

  10. Yinyan says:

    I definitely got a notification about that javascript worm when I tried to get on your site the other day, but it was gone by the next day so I assumed that you fixed it. Other than that the site has been loading a little slower than usual, but I just attribute that to my clunker of a computer…

  11. hey karen!

    works on firefox, but not on IE.

  12. Stacey says:

    Karen- I tried to get on last night around 10pm CST using Internet Explorer and it came up “page can not be displayed.” I thought it was my internet being funny, but I went to another page and it worked fine, so just wanted to let you know!

  13. Stacey says:

    Oh yeah, and this morning I got to the webpage fine through Firefox.

  14. Dao says:

    Yeah, I could not get to one of the pages yesterday. I just assumed my laptop being old and slow to act out in a jealousy fit whenever I want to see Tabs 🙂

  15. Shannon says:

    i’m trying to click on categories to the right and also on the top of your page- (I’m looking for nails info) and I’m getting the internet explorer cannot display this webpage.
    Hope you are well!!

  16. Ditte says:

    I couldn’t connect to your site from work – they use Internet Explorer and it just said the same as it says when a site doesn’t exist. This is european standard time, and I was at work from 7 am to 3 pm, so we’re 9 hours ahead of you guys in SF 🙂
    When I got back home a little while ago, let’s say 7:30 pm, the site is working fine in FireFox.

    • Karen says:

      Hi everyone,

      Thanks so much for the feedback — this helps a lot. I’m still working on a solution. Hopefully it’ll come along sooner than later.

      For now I’m gonna blame it on Mercury in retrograde…

      How’s everybody’s day going? Anything new to report?

  17. Sheila says:

    I’m using IE and just now I had to refresh the page because only 1/2 of it was there. The bottom half was missing. This happened yesterday too.

  18. Nicole15 says:

    Hey Karen! Did want to let you know that I have been having problems accessing the blog. I haven’t been able to get on your site for 2 days now. I’m using my Blackberry to send you this. I’ve been trying at work & we use Internet Explorer & at home where we use Firefox. It just says “error” each time I try. Hope it can be fixed cause I’m really jonesin’ for MBB. This blackberry viewing is just not cuttin’ it. Good luck!

  19. Sarah says:

    Hi Karen,

    I have not experiencing any problems accessing your blog. I view it from my work computer and my home computer with no problem.

  20. Jennifer says:

    I use Internet Explorer and for the past few days, it kept on showing up as “This Page Cannot be Displayed”. I still couldn’t view it today so I tried using a UK proxy and that worked. I’m from Canada btw. Hope this gets fixed soon.

  21. Tiffany says:

    Hey Karen! The only problem I have had is with the new bar at the bottom (the get updates by email bar). I frequently check out your site on my iphone, and on there, the bar stays in one place on the screen, even when I scroll down, so I can never read the text that is under the bar, lol.

  22. singrsling says:

    Hi Karen,
    Yesterday and earlier today, I was not able to open your links on the blog. I just tried again, and they seem to be ok. I use Internet Explorer.

  23. jamila says:

    hey karen! great job as always!

    im not sure if you know this but i primarily read your posts through the daily email i get but your daily photo and makeup pics do not show up. the description is there but there is no photos to accompany the wonderful descriptions! all the other photos load up just fine! i use firefox and hotmail to view your emailed posts!

  24. penelope says:

    nope not at all

  25. Nicole15 says:

    Just an update Karen, when i got home from work today I tried on my home computer since my work one was still not wanting to display your site, and it worked!!! I saw some gaawwwgeous red lips & my MBB withdrawal was finally cured! Yay! Hope my work computer decides to do its thing for me tomorrow. I can’t go all day without MBB. I’m addicted… 🙂

  26. Louise Gray says:

    Yesterday I had trouble. I use Verizon internet. I could not get the pages to open to see any pictures. I just assumed that it was my fault because after the free Norton protection disappeared, I was just too cheap and lazy to continue any protection. Now that I have announced this, Hell fire will rain down upon me. But that is what happened yesterday. Louise

  27. Kerry says:

    Hi Karen,
    I had trouble the last couple of days. I simply couldn’t access it at all. I got a “not found” error message. Might have something to do with the crappy internet we have end in New Zealand!

    • Karen says:

      Hi gals,

      Thank you all again for the updates. Please let me know if you’re still having trubs. I appreciate your patience! I’m still working things out…

  28. Jaime says:

    Hi Karen! I haven’t been able to get to your blog for the last few days – I was so relieved to find you today! I use IE, and it kept telling me the page could not be found. Works great today, though! Thanks! 🙂

  29. Elle says:

    This is the first day since Tuesday I’ve been able to see your blog, Karen! I just get the standard error message–“This page is unavailable” and then a bunch of stuff about how the website might be having problems, or my connection might be bad. Nothing out of the ordinary.

    I’m glad I can read it now, though. I have some catching up to do 🙂 Hope you’re having a good day!

  30. Kat says:

    No problem for me. My browser is Safari.

    I don’t know if you are one for astrology, but Mercury is in retrograde! Communication failure abounds (I guess that includes computers!)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kat,

      Yeah, I follow the stars (Susan Miller is my girl!). I totally blame it on Mercury in retrograde…

      What’s your sign? And I mean that in a totally non-sleazy way, LOL. I’m a Gemini!

  31. Claire says:

    I’ve had a little trouble with the search option on the site… it didn’t work for me. It seems to be better now though.

  32. Marce says:

    Hey chica…yesterday I was checking out my usual favourites and MBB didn’t open – total bummer. I have IE and I got the typical “Internet Explorer Can Not Display Webpage” but I could open everything else. Now (obviously) everything’s OK, thank the lawd 😀

  33. Kat says:

    Haha! I always dread mercury in retrograde, it messes everything up!

    I’m a Cancer on the cusp of Leo. Hurray for summer birthdays!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kat,

      Yeah, it does. I’m not a hard core astrology follower, but I do notice how technical stuff always seems to go haywire when Mercury goes into retrograde. It’s the weirdest thing…
