Pieces of Life
Sorry a little tech before beauty today.
Apologies for all the problems everyone has been having with Musings of a Muse loading in Android based devices. Your phones, your Kindles, your Nooks, Tablets, etc…if they are running an Android based OS for some reason it doesn’t play nicely with my cache plugin.
Moral of the story? The site crashes and burns whenever you’re trying to load it up on these devices. Good news! It works on iPhone/iPad so screw all you Android users. I’m kidding…! I obviously use droid devices myself, rarely, sometimes, maybe, not really…no seriously, my Nook is droid based so I’m having the same issues as all of you.
This morning the site was switched over to a mobile friendly less than pretty version. No likey…! So I finally figured out a way to exclude the cache plugin from loading on these devices which means as of now you should be good to rock and roll on your droid.
I do recommend clearing your cache if you’re STILL having the issue with the site crashing.
I didn’t have time to create a tutorial on how to do this but I imagine some people might not know how to clear their cache on their phones so here’s some online tutorials that are fairly simple to follow for clearing your cache.
Now the bad news….
Since the the cache plugin is actually bypassed in these devices the site might be a little slower. Sorry, that can’t be helped at this point.
If you have any other issues let me know via comment or you can e-mail, tweet me, etc…!
Hope this helps clear up the issue!
And for the love of the tech gods, buy an Apple Tablet/Phone and leave all your ice cream sandwiches, honeycombs, and other sweets behind! I’m kidding ;-D
P.S. If you have a second to spare to let me know if it is now working for you I’d appreciate it greatly!
Quickie update for today.
I know this week has been rubbish on Musings. Database errors, Bad Gateways, and possible issues accessing Musings of a Muse Oh My!
I’m moving to a beefier server. The dedicated box I’m currently on just can’t handle my site load any longer. I’m kinda hyped that it has a 1TB HD as I only had a 500 before and was kinda paranoid about filling it up…..but I’m not so happy about the monthly charge ha…ouch y u hurt my feelings with your expensive ways!?
What this means for you…
Hopefully it means no more issues with bad gateways, database error messages, or general down time.
My new template will be installed shortly as well. Happy Days!
Hopefully all these new updates will insure a faster, happier browsing experience for you all.
Apologies about the issues lately, believe me, they are as frustrating for me as they are for you.
