I think I broke Blog... I'm sorry Pete and/or Sander!!!

I set up a test blog at http://isadora.travelerspoint.com. Okay, cool enough - it worked. But, I then deleted that blog since it was only a test. Now, I am trying to set up a real blog using the same address and it tells me I can't because it's taken. (I know it's taken. I took it. I want to keep it. I like it.) What am I missing??? Did I not receive the right owner's manual?? Am I really that much of a jinx that everything ceases to function as soon as I use it?

Woe is me... What did I do wrong? What am I missing? Can't anyone help me? (I just want to be me... isadora... breaker of TP...)

Hey Isa,

This has actually been done on purpose. When you delete your blog, it still keeps most of the information in the database (for a while at least) for the unlikely occassion that someone made a dreadful mistake. Also, it could be confusing to visitors of that blog to all of a sudden arrive at a totally different blog.

To fix it, I'll just 'undelete' your isadora blog for you :)

Peter

Thanks Pete!
I was going to keep the titles the same anyway, so I can just edit!

I'll try not to break anything else. Headed to Chicago for the day so I won't have the chance!

Well, what do you know... same guy that got some stuff deleted on the forum yesterday. I've dropped him a message asking him to kindly refrain from this going forward...

Of course we had an inkling comments might need to be deleted from time to time, so in your Blog Control Panel the comments link there is clickable. From there you can delete/edit any comments made in your blogs. You'll also get there if you click on the 'Manage' link and then the MANAGE tab, where COMMENTS is the second sub tab....

Hope that helps!

Cheers,

Sam

I don't see where someone has mentioned this yet, so here goes....

I have been reading various member's blogs. When I've finished, I scroll down to the links at the bottom of the page and click Travel Forums to return to the forums page. Every time, no matter who's blog it is, that particular link takes me to the "You're Lost" page. (Really, I'm not lost - I know where I am and where I want to go.) Thought you guys ought to know... Maybe it's just me, but I have yet to have that link take me to the forums page. (Are you trying to get rid of me? )

Heh. That link goes to forums.cfm rather than to forum.cfm
Fixing it would be really easy... if Peter was around. Sam, would you know how to do that?

Just noticed that too... will get it done. Give me five mins.
