The other day, after posting the story about Tony Bennett and Me, I decided to play around with my website and do some tweaking. (That thought right there should have thrown up a red flag in my brain!) Specifically, I was testing out a new plugin that clones a post: here’s the gist – I could write a post, then clone it and make changes to the cloned post without having to change the original post, and then I could compare the two posts side-by-side to see which one I liked better.

Sounds like an great idea, doesn’t it?

Well, it cloned the post, all right. But what it also did was emailed the cloned post out to everybody, just like the first one which had already been sent! Ugh.

So please accept my apologies for the duplicate mailings in your email inbox. As far as I can tell, it looks like two additional blog posts were sent out after the initial one, both of which were titled Tony Bennett and Me 2.

I’ve since deleted that plugin and hopefully, you won’t be getting any more duplicate mailings.

And no more crazy stuff from me!

Have fun today, everybody 😀

    Doncha love technology, Lois? If we were only as smart as our kids and their kids when it comes to computers and the Internet.

    I set up second blog that is closed to the public, but I can do all my experimenting on it and know one know it exists, but I can see it since I’m the only subscriber (unless I want someone else to give me feedback). Before I did that, I had a couple of “oops” moments, too. I can empathize since I’ve been down your path. 🙂

      That’s a great idea, Ed! I had actually downloaded a “maintenance mode” plugin a couple of years ago when I did a similar “oops” – I could put my website in maintenance mode and tweak away without any chance of my tweaking going out before I wanted it to. Funny thing is, I thought about that plugin before I started screwing around with the site the other night but I thought “Nah, nothing’s gonna happen.” Famous last words, huh! Good to know I’m not alone out there in the blogosphere world 😀
