My b2evolution Version: 2.x

Hey--guys who know a hell of a lot more than me about this stuff--I recently updated to 2.X and I noticed my posts are not being listed on the update list on B2Evo.net.

Can someone reset this for me?

Or is this because I left the blog name field blank in my backoffice? I did this so it wouldn't show up over my blog logo.

Thanks in advance,

Sharky

I have always made the list before...the ping B2evo Box is checked...all is in order. This has something to do with my upgrade or the Name of the blog in the backoffice I think.

It's the name of the blog in the back office. Since your "new" name isn't approved it doesn't show up. Oh wait did you also change anything like using stubs or the way your home page URL looks? I forget exactly what the matching criteria is is why I ask.

Depending on how your skin is made, you should be able to restore the parameter you changed in the back office AND remove it from the skin by removing the appropriate widget. OTOH that might screw up the layout, but only way to find out is to test it yah?

I'm not sure what I changed. Let me experiment.

Okay, I removed the Blog Title Widget and Blog Tagline Widget from the header. Then I gave by blog a title. Now I'm not sure what my old title exactly was because I am a bit of a moron and have no memory to speak of.

I made a test blog post and nothing showed up in the B2Evo list, so either I didn't get my old name right or it has something to do with stubs.

Also, now my HEADER category in Widgets has disappeared completely because I deleted both widgets that were in it. Is there any way to get it back?

Does "The Chum Slick--A Blog Written by an Actual Shark" ring a bell?

LOL. Alright. That was it!

I was trying to put in "The Chum Slick--the only blog written by a real life Shark." It didn't fit.

I changed it back to The Chum Slick--A Blog Written by an Actual Shark.

I made a test post and it still didn't show up...

Thanks for putting up with my perpetual silliness.
