I’ve set up a WordPress site for a client and have had no end of troubles trying to get the site to behave – however there seems to be a constant problem of WordPress hanging.
Anyway, if you find that you are having the same problem, follow these directions:
- Restart your web browser (if it isn’t already closed)
- Open up your blog site and log on in the normal way.
- On each widget – click on the configure link. Delete the contents of the RSS feed URL and then click on Submit
- Now just go to the top of the page and click on Screen Options. Disable the widgets that show an error message and all will be right with the world once again!
It’s a bit of a pain, and I haven’t managed to get to the bottom of the problem as I am never in charge of hosts where the problems lie.
However, this workaround will at least get you going with your blog without any more hassle!
