For Sale: one blog, slightly used, 5 dollars, or best offer

by statia on December 22, 2003

I’m about to go mental. Lately, my blog has been completely resetting itself to whatever skin it feels like using. I thought maybe it was just me, but it’s happening at random, both here and at work. Has anyone else had this problem? Can anyone tell me what it might be? All the cookies files are fine, and in perfect order. I’m wondering if it’s my host, but seriously, I’m going to go nuts in a minute.

That’s not happening to me. I chose the new skin and it’s staying since about 6pm. weird.

Kevin December 22, 2003 at 11:47 pm

New skin staying put. Second time since noon or so. If I had to guess, I would say it’s a server hiccup or just cookies expiring. In the words of ol Bob Marley: No woman, no cry. Of course, I don’t think he was talking about cookies and skins, but…whatever.

The errors I see are these:

Warning: main(skins/header.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/statia/public_html/index.php on line 50

Warning: main(skins/header.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/statia/public_html/index.php on line 50

Warning: main(): Failed opening ‘skins/header.php’ for inclusion (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/statia/public_html/index.php on line 50

I’m also getting a javascript error everytime I type a character here in the comments…

I set your site to your new skin, and it keeps going back to AFJ. I’ve tried setting it with both of the other Christmas skins before and it still went back. I know nothing about anything.

I’ve been getting the error all day. Not sure what could be causing it, either. Sowwy. :-(

i’m seeing the same php errors that sekimori has listed.

gojou December 23, 2003 at 6:21 am

Jeez, I always thought you [i]meant[/i] for it to do that. ;-)

Actually, your blog used to do that all the time on my system, but it hasn’t in a really long time. Then again, I haven’t tried to change the skin in a long time, either.

Yikes! It looks crazy today. I get the “failed to open stream” bit too.

But your blog has never remembered me no matter how many times I choose the “remember personal info” button.

We’re just glad you can still post. My daily reads wouldn’t be the same.

I think I blame your host. Who knows…maybe it is a MAC vs. PC thing? I am looking on a MAC. I’ll check on the PC tonight.

Could it be your poltergeist?

paige December 23, 2003 at 8:36 am

on a mac none of the text in the right column can be seen below the comment form. the page ends but the right column keeps going after the cupid image. Using the red santa background all the text in that column is lost. other than that my skin sticks and everything else works fine. must be the ghost.

paige December 23, 2003 at 8:38 am

whoops. scratch that. the entry page works (abet the right column problem). your main index is returning errors.

sean December 23, 2003 at 8:52 am

Is the cookiecheck.php in working right in all the skins? Maybe the cookies are setting right, but not being read properly? Maybe try rebuilding that file and see what happens.

Mmmm. Cookie.

mmmmmmmmm cookies

Yay it’s working!

Kenn December 23, 2003 at 10:16 am

Yay it’s working!

Stephanie December 23, 2003 at 2:56 pm

I’m relieved to know I’m not the only one getting errors every time I type a single character in your comment box. Sorry to complain but… couldja please fix that?!?!

Happy to see you’re not participating in Can’t Believe I actually Dragged my Fucking Ass into Work Today Day…

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, cuz! When I leave today I will be kissing my high speed connection good bye until 1/5. I know, how do I live like this?
