Continuing Picture Recovery Problems

After lunch I published

then attempted to recover the photographs for

Two of the pictures were unrecoverable, although there was a header. The pencil drawing from 1966 was the most important absentee, so I substituted it with a scan, produced today without removing the image from the frame, and therefore replaced the earlier header with this.

Quiet Days, from 21st July 2012 presented an example of what I have discovered in the run of posts in those early months which do contain all their pictures and have headers in place. That is that none of the images can be enlarged by the viewer. On the whole this is not disastrous, but it reveals that they are not in my WP image library. The picture that appeared in the header above but was not present in the text. When trying to click on the images I receive the following message: “We cannot complete this request, remote data could not be fetched”. I was unable to do anything with it until I clicked on the Classic editor box and was then able at least to move it and transfer it to the image library. This seemed to link with the fact that these posts were produced on the old Classic editor.

I will not attempt the same process with the other images in this or previous posts, unless the images become crucial.

This afternoon I watched the Six Nations rugby matches between Italy and Ireland, and between England and Wales.

This evening we all dined on Jackie’s spicy chicken jalfrezi, vegetable samosas, and Flo’s crisp and tasty sweet potato rotis, with which Mrs Knight drank Hoegaarden and I drank Mendoza Malbec 2021.


        1. WP have been so unhelpful all through the transfer which was only undertaken because they would not let me extend my limit – I know it was my mistake to have exceeded it, but the Happiness Engineers certainly did not help.

          1. Happiness Engineers. Haha, not! I am really sorry that you are having this trouble. It’s such a shame. They should be grateful to you for being such a longtime regular blogger!

  1. Dear Derrick, 1, I wish I was there. 2, I am in love with the lady who sits, cross legged with her sandals kicked off at a table with a hundred years of work on paper and a green lawn and flowers.
    That is one amazing photograph.

    1. I’m so pleased you liked that one so much – especially good to have recovered it, John. What a pity you are not just around the corner. Thanks very much

  2. I’m still using the Classic Editor and for the most part. I’m very happy with it. I did have to change a post recently though, when I found that a map of the Eastern Front in WW2 could not be enlarged by the reader. I don’t know why, but this apparently tiny problerm did necessitate changing a whole section of the post while people were reading it. Very exciting, though!

    1. I only changed because they kept warning us that it would be closed down. Thanks a lot, John

  3. Hi Derrick, I have almost forgotten about the old Classic editor now. It feels like I’ve been using the block editor forever. I moved over early though, as I find it easier to use.

  4. I am glad that you have included the lovely drawing of Jackie, by whatever means it was achieved.
    Again, I could only marvel at your patience, tenacity, and determination, Derrick, and will raise a glass of Mendoza Malbec in your honor tonight.
