WordPress.Com: Removing Sanity

Switching to paid hosting has been a challenge.

Challenges are both fun and frustrating. I, along with thousands of other users, am now experiencing an issue with scheduled posts failing to go up as planned. I can’t seem to fix the bug because I’m not a php genius or experienced at technical mumbo-jumbo.
The support forums are populated with whiz kids who fail to include the basic information for nearly fifty-year-old DIYers who never had a computer class in their lives.

In perusing the code this morning while frantically trying to solve the problem before the holiday, I discovered this delightful string:

// WordPress supports PHP 4.3, which has this function. Removed sanity
// checking for performance reasons.

I kid you not.

  1. Hilarious! :D

    I agree, these open source communities tend to be every-man-for-himself.

  2. Dude! You’re the one who answers all the questions! I for one, appreciate all that you do for others, even IF I don’t understand a word of it. Thanks!

  3. Your problem, I think, is that you’re using a WordPress version that is a year old.

    I just upgraded to 2.9, the newest release.
