Wondering on Wednesday

Is Blogger trying to tell me something?

It appears The Couch is broken. The right sidebar went to the bottom after my post last Wednesday.

Dianne sent me an email today telling me her virus software tells her that The Couch is full of malware

I get like 4 comments on any post

I have no idea what happened to the site and am seriously wondering if it is time to shut it down

Did this happen because I have not been posting the 100 reasons to blog for peace?

I guess I get to spend some time over the next week to figure this out

Does it look broken to you too?

  2. The first comment looks badly bent. Just sayin'.

     
  3. Micky-T Says:
  4. Some friends on "Slapdash" had a similar problem, when I visited there blog it showed it was infected etc. I came in from a back door (older post then hit home)and it was fine. Their guru geek friend had this to explain it to us.....
    ......

    "I found the malware issue, the site was being redirected to a fake virus scanner only on redirect, not on direct entry (ie if you clicked on a link to theslapdash.com you'd get it, not if you typed it into your browser). They do this so we can't easily discover it and troubleshoot it..."

    ... so we've removed that link from the page and are still working on getting the site back up, thanks!!


    by the way I have no problem getting to your site.

     
  5. Things do seem a bit odd...

     
  6. DRILLER: Meaning?

    MICKYT: So weird. Main page the sidebar is down below, but when you go to individual posts it is OK - except last Wednesday and Friday - Not sure what is causing it, except I had two spam comments come through on those days

    PHFRANKIE: Tell me what you see

     
  7. It's probably one of the widgets on your sidebar. The only thing you can really do is take each thing off your sidebar one at a time and see if it fixes your page.

  8. Travis Cody Says:
  9. Usually when that happens to me it's because of html code in a post that is too big for the text box. If I can find out which code and delete it, then everything goes back to normal.

     
  10. Mimi Lenox Says:
  11. What Travis said works for me. This just happened the other day on Dating Profile of The Day. It took forever to fix it but it finally corrected.
    Why is there a search box at the top of the page like that above your couch?

    I've been such a bad friend not getting here sooner to help. Not that I can really help...but still.
    Have you figured anything else out?
