WordPress 4.7 Broke My Login

Aw boo, upgrading to the latest WordPress 4.7 Vaughan accidentally broke my ability to login. Instead, I was caught in a loop where WP wanted to update the database but couldn’t.

Is the Scheduler Working?

Not sure why but the internal scheduler service that WordPress uses wasn’t working. No wonder why scheduled posts didn’t post accordingly. Also, all kinds of trackbacks and other links weren’t updated. As a starting point, I disabled a bunch of WP plugins. Doing so appears to have cleared the backlog of scheduled tasks. Now to […]
