My second post…
Somewhere in the distant past, someone said Word Press was the place to be to create a blog, so after using Yahoo Groups and Blogspot I got prompted the other day to enter a OpenID and one option was for WordPress so I thought I’d check it out, so here I am. The first problem was I wanted to enter a date including the year two thousand and eight but entering the Arabic characters 200+eight results in 2008 (well it works as expected here but not on the about page or whatever page I was sent to first. Computers!!!!). I know about HTML escape characters but couldn’t use that to print the eight so wrote it out as above.
It turns out my blog at:
is still there so I’ve explained my over a year long absence and will likely continue to use that blog as don’t have the same problem just entering the current year.
Good luck to other WordPress bloggers. I’ll check back periodically and see if looking AGAIN through the FAQs yields a solution but I’m not going to hold my breath.
