“A Problem occurred with this webpage so it was reloaded.”
I use my iPad for everything, including adding new WordPress posts to my blog. Just recently, the WordPress ‘autosave’ function, which saves your draft every minute, seemed not be working. When I tried to do it manually, be clicking on the ‘save’ button, it just hung there, saying saving, but not doing anything. Eventually I had to leave the draft page after waiting three hours for it to save, but when I came back to it, it was still the same. So I moved to the clunky laptop, but it’s more difficult to manipulate my photos, and I couldn’t send iPad drafts to laptop as we don’t have an Office program since my husband accidentally deleted most things when he upgraded to Windows 10….
Then another problem got worse on my iPad, which had been evident for several weeks while trying to write a WordPress blog post. A message started appearing at the top of my draft screen, telling me that “A Problem occurred with this webpage so it was reloaded”. It was ok to start with, I just waited a minute for it to reload, and carried on. But now it was doing it continually, especially when I was trying to insert an image, and a few days ago it got to the point where I just couldn’t do anything to my blog.
The WordPress forums were not helpful, so eventually I typed that phrase into Google, and bingo! Two minutes later I fixed the problem. I was directed to https://discussions.apple.com/ And it seemed that all I had to do was delete the ‘history’ on my IPad, turn it off then on again, and I was in business!
So I’m feeling very pleased with myself, and now I have a long list of blog posts waiting to be written, which are currently in note form as a Pages document on my IPad. Unfortunately, I have three children and two grandchildren visiting this weekend, so I’m afraid the blog will have to wait……
