Well, I Guess They Showed Me!

Right after I wrote that post about my experiences with PowWeb support, I started looking for a new Twitter integration plugin to install… and with one simple click of the button, my website was dead!  My initial instinct was that PowWeb had done something to my account again, but after checking the status of my other blogs, that assumption went out the window.  No, the problem was unique to WaS.

It took 2 days, but I finally received the fix.

After reviewing your site, we found that one of its 59 different plugins is now preventing it from loading as it was intended. As we do not support 3rd party applications such as Word Press beyond their installation via Install Central, we will not be able to correct this for you. We recommend renaming your plugins via the File Manage starting with the latest ones added until you find the one causing this problem and delete it. Alternatively, if you have any backups of this sites database, you can import them using phpMyAdmin. Let us know if you have further questions.

Oh, I knew which plugin it was… Twitter For WordPress… I could see that it was installed at 7:40am on Friday morning.  The exact time that my blog went dead.  I didn’t even bother renaming it.  I just simply deleted it and voila!  Problem solved!  So I wrote them a very nice “thank you”.

Open mouth… insert foot… story of my life.
