It's called "See if you can get to Tessie's first appearance on the blog in less than 15 minutes." I will even tell you when it was.
Tessie first showed up here on January 10, 2009. Next January, she will have been here three years.
She is however, much older than that. She was born in London England in 1593. But that's another very,very long story.
A few days ago, there was a comment on the blog, saying that the reader couldn't get to that day.
I thought that was strange and started investigating. It seems that most all of the archive pages in the side bar lead to only part of any given month.
As you know, the newest entry is always at the top of the page. I went to January, 09 and scrolled down....It went as far as the 19th and then there was the bottom, where the "newer posts", "home" and "older posts" buttons are supposed to be. Those navigate to the next section.....However....There is a problem. Right now, the only button there is "Home". That takes you right back to this page. GRRRRRR.....Frustration abounds!
I went and checked. The posts are still there. I got through to them through my "edit posts" page.
At that time, I thought that it was only the one section that was being strange. Then last night, I caught Tessie bouncing around on the keys and she discovered that all of the pages were like that, with the exception of this one.
We played with it for a while. We first went to the January 2009 page. We went to the last entry and selected it by poking the title. That brought up January 18, 2009... One problem. In order to get back to January 10th, we had to go to the bottom of each one and poke, "older post"(singular). On each entry between.
After investigating a bit more, in the same manner, we managed to get to January of 2010. By that time Tessie was opening the Tea Shop and Zar was there helping.
I wrote a question on the Blogger forum about how to fix this. Evidently nobody else is having the same problem. No one has answered on there.
This morning I put a question on the "help" page. I am, so far, not hearing anything about it being fixed.
This year in January, Tessie was turning her cottage into a millinery shop. She had high hopes of moving into the townhouse....It's not ready yet....
If you need to get to any old entries on the blog, these the only ways that I know how to do it.
You can do it by "label" or you can take the long way around as I described above.....
You can always start at the very beginning and, one at a time, work forward.....Very few people are that patient.
Hopefully, I will get it straightened out soon. Wish me luck.
See you tomorrow.
