Typepad Help Sucks (but my photography is pretty good)

OK.  Typepad help is, in my opinion, useless.  I like to chose the format of having my links on the right side of the screen.  However when I do this my post texts are cut off.  I sent in a trouble ticket to Typepad and they came back and said it was something I had done.  So I ran an html check and guess what.  It might have been something I did, but it was in their code.  Hum.  My issues also began around the time that Typepad "upgraded" their platform. I decided to try my blog with the links on the left and guess what.  Everything works fine.  It may be me, but I don't think so.  If anyone can figure out a way to fix this issue, please let me know.  Note that I use custom themes and not one of the typepad ones.  Sigh.

But – see my new look?  And that gorgeous bridge at the top of my page?  Well that is the bridge that crosses the Mississippi River between Quincy, Illinois and Hannibal, Missouri. And I took that photo!  Not bad, is it?

  1. Martie, that’s an amazing photograph…I love it!
    I had nothing but trouble when I unwittingly signed up for Typepad Beta. It kept crashing on me whenever I tried to upload a photograph. A friend suggested I try Windows Live Writer, which I did and still use. I type my post and upload my pictures on Live Writer which then sends them to Typepad. After a quick check to make sure everything looks OK, I just click save and it’s posted on my blog, thus eliminating working in Typepad at all. I really like it.
    If you google Windows Live Writer it will guide you through dowloading it and linking up to your Typepad Blog. It’s worth a try anyway!

  2. I’m so sorry to hear you were having trouble. If you want, I can take a look at your help ticket to see if there’s something more we can do.

  3. Beautiful photograph Martie!! I LOVE it!! Sorry I have been so quiet for a while, was really sick this time around, but feel more human now! I am off to read and catch up on your blog! Have a wonderful day!!
