I have met the enemy and it is me! I managed to crash my own blog earlier tonight.
It started with an entry about the Köppen climate classification. I used the word Köppen in the title.
As an entry is named, its link is automatically created. WordPress didn’t appreciate the inclusion of an “ö” with an umlaut in the link and just stopped.
You could get to my home page, but everything else was AWOL.
This is one of those messy jobs where I had to go into the database which contains the blog entries and manually remove a few. The database is deep within the bowels of the website and critical to nearly every part of it.
It was tightrope without a net time. There’s always the worry I’ll fix something until it’s REALLY broken!
I’ll rewrite my Köppen climate classification entry later. Right now I’m just glad to be clickable again.
