I'm chasing down a conflict or bug so I'm turning off some features here and there. Behind the scenes they automatically upgrade the WordPress software. I have no choice about it. And then sometimes stuff breaks and you don't know what it is. And you call the hosting provider and they tell you it's your fault. So basically you're on your own. I'm on my own. So if you see some features come and go, you'll know it's me tinkering around in the background trying to find out if one of the plug-ins that are current installed has some kind of conflict with the new version of WordPress.

So that's why StubbornChat disappeared.

Yeah. And that might not being coming back. It was barely working to begin with. I was hoping they would update it again and fix it.

Knock on wood, Timothy, the "have to click several times on a link to get it to work" behavior has gone away. It's possible the site (or the host provider) was under some kind of denial-of-service attack. Or the host provider (after recent upgrade after upgrade in the background) fixed something they broke. I know someone who got out of the blogging biz because this stuff can be so Byzantine. Can't blame him. I feel I'm always one huge software headache problem myself from throwing in the towel. And when online support is generally of the mindset to blame the user first, you're basically on your own.

Well, we shall see. Mostly this has worked well, though occasionally I do have to click twice and occasionally the site is unavailable. But such failures have been rare in my experience.
