Editor’s Note: Thanks to the hard work of our IT staff and the WordPress technical staff, our “comments” functionality is working again. Still working to diagnose the cause of the problem – and adding a couple of additional security measures to avoid similar problems in the future.
Please feel free to comment on earlier articles because we were not able to restore those comments.
As Frank Report readers are undoubtedly aware, our blog has been experiencing some major technical difficulties since yesterday afternoon.
Initially, we lost all the posts – and all the comments – that were posted after April 30th.
Since that time, we have been able to access back-up copies of the deleted posts – and republish them.
But, as of right now, we have still not been able to restore all the comments that were deleted – and readers are still not able to post new comments.
Our IT staff is working with technical staff from WordPress to restore full functionality to the site as soon as possible.
They are also working to identify what caused the problem.
At this point, we are still not certain as to whether the problem was caused by an internal malfunction or outside factors.
Fending off invasive attacks is an everyday task for the Frank Report.
Most of those are fairly unsophisticated – and are easily thwarted.
But what’s happened over the course of the last day is highly unusual – and equally suspicious.
And it appears to be limited to Frank Report – and not any of the thousands of other blogs and websites that utilize the Word Press platform.
We’ll let you know as soon as this problem has been resolved – and, hopefully, be able to share with you what caused it.
In the meantime, if anyone has information that they wish to share with us – about this or any other matter – please send an email to: FrankParlato@gmail.com.
