GRRRR

Ugh. Ugh, ugh, UGH. šŸ˜”

If you can’t see pictures from any of my posts, I’m sorry. I can’t do anything about it right now. I’m writing this from my phone, since we’re on vacation.

Google has announced that they will no longer be serving content through the googledrive.com/host/ link. This means that my tutorial ( yes, the one I spent WEEKS on to help you all ) will no longer work. This ALSO means that every single photo ever uploaded with the tutorial will disappear. Yes, you read that right. As of August 31, 2016, all the photos uploaded with the tutorial will be gone. Not just on my blog. On your blogs. In the posts you worked so hard on.

I’m so, SO, sorry that this is happening. I wish I had a perfect fix, but I really don’t. To Megan, Rutvi, Allison, Grace, and everyone else using my tutorial, I’m sorry. You’re going to have to go back and fix this by taking out the Google Drive pictures and re-uploading them the normal way. I know this isn’t my fault, but I still feel terrible. šŸ˜„

I do have a solution for those of you who are out of WordPress space, though it isn’t ideal. Here’s what to do:

Go to blogger.com.

Start a blog, nothing fancy. You can call it “photo backup” or something like that.

Upload your photos to that blog and post them.

Copy and paste the pictures into WordPress.

You can make the blog private, if you like. I’m sorry this isn’t ideal or fast, but it’s all I’ve got for now. It’s going to be a lot of work replacing all your photos.

Bye for now. Again, I’m sorry. I wish Google wasn’t doing this. šŸ˜¦

  1. Ugh! That is SO annoying! That is not right of Google. I actually only used the tutorial once, but still! ~Mya
    P.S. I am a KOTLC Fan now! Right now I am a little more than halfway through with Neverseen. I cant wait until Lodestar comes out!

  4. So far, I haven’t seemed to have trouble seeing everyone’s pictures… I don’t know if that is just my computer or something?… Just thought I’d mention it. šŸ™‚ šŸ˜¦

  6. Oh my goodness that’s so frustrating! I didn’t use the tutorial, but I’m very sad for the rest of you šŸ˜¦
    Don’t feel bad, Clara. It isn’t your fault! You were helping people and it was great, but now Google is ruining that. Ugh.
    I know everyone is super grateful to you for the help while it was available. Don’t blame yourself, blame GOOGLE! *growls angrily at Google people*
    Oh! And just wanted to let you know that I can see the pics on your last post now! So weird…XD
    Enjoy the rest of your vacation and put your worries behind you šŸ™‚

  7. OH NO! ARGH! How frustrating! šŸ˜¦
    Clara, it isn’t your fault at all…so don’t blame yourself! Your tutorial was really helpful and it’s a huge bummer that Google did what they did. šŸ˜¦
    But it is totally NOT your fault! It’s very frustrating, but no way are you held responsible. šŸ™‚
    Enjoy the rest of your vacation, Clara! Don’t worry about it!

  8. Thank you so, so much Jaclynn. You’re so sweet to say that. šŸ™‚
    *growls at Google with you*
    Yay, that’s good to hear! I think that may have been a WordPress glitch.
    Thank you again! I will. šŸ™‚

  9. Oh, that’s SO sad! I feel really bad for you since you went to all that work. šŸ˜„ I’ll try the blogger thing, I guess. *Sniff* Wait, wouldn’t it work to start another WordPress blog?

  10. Oh yeah, I totally agree – this was not your fault, Clara! If you hadn’t done the tutorial, the bloggers who used it wouldn’t have been able to post pictures in the first place!

  11. I’m really sorry about this, Clara! Don’t feel bad, it was not your fault AT ALL. šŸ™‚
    As for your new solution, I have to thank you SO MUCH. The Google method didn’t work for me (I have no idea why), but this method should work quite well. šŸ™‚ Thank you!

  12. I’m not sure, but Dad said everybody and his brother has one. XD I’m just going to do the make a new blog thing. I think that will actually be faster in some ways than copying URLs. You can copy all of your pictures at once that way, instead of doing it one at a time.
