Technical issues

And good morning to you, too!

Things are amiss in my little kingdom. I have the WooCommerce plugin installed at Miss Missy’s School. I have a funny and engaging little short story from what I’m calling “The Times Before Miss Missy’s School” series ready to go. I thought I might try to generate some spare change by selling it for a couple of bucks. (After all of the free stuff I’ve been churning out, I didn’t think that was unreasonable.) But I cannot find the plugin. I’ve even gone so far as to download the .zip file and upload it manually and the response is that the plugin is already installed. Okay. But where is it? I cannot see it in the Admin panel. It’s not listed in plug ins.

If anyone out there in the great World Wide Webisphere has a clue, please share.

UPDATE! I figured it out. Which is to say I finally found a web site where people weren’t trying to impress each other with how complicated they could make the solution. This place explained the problem and in a straight forward way showed how to fix it. It took me a few minutes to figure out where the folder was at my hosting service, but once I did–delete, install, activate and I’m good to go. Well, after I learn how to use the plugin. But I’m making progress. Carry on.

Over at The Old Books Blog I am being plagued by … wait. It was a nonce (or whatever) problem. Now it’s something else b/c it keeps signing me in using my gravatar account instead of my WP account. What the heck?

On the Bright Side! The day is scheduled to end very well. Very well, indeed. A Big Food Favorite.
