What to Expect From The Blog Fixer
- In order to perform a fix on your site, The Blog Fixer staff will install The Blog Fixer (TBF) plugin on your site. Here’s how it works:
- The plugin scans your site’s content to apply the fixes you signed up for
- TBF does not consume any server resources or have any effect on the performance of your site unless it is actively running a job.
- Updates to posts are made in a very similar manner as if a human were updating through the standards WordPress post editor, only in a bulk fashion.
- The post modified time will be changed to the time the fix is run.
- The post will be last edited by The Blog Fixer’s WP user that is logged when the plugin is run. This will allow you to easily differentiate fixes from standard post edits.
- You may review the fix’s changes before it is made live. You should make your desire to do so prior to your service date through email. You can elect to:
- Receive a CSV file of the change details.
- Review a list of all posts that will be changed.
- Preview any changed posts in their fixed form.
- Preview side by side comparison of the before and after Html.
- Every fix is reversible with certain criteria:
- The Fix record in The Blog Fixer’s history is not deleted.
- Fixed posts are not altered further after the change is applied.
- TBF is capable of dealing with less-than-perfect Html in posts with the following exceptions below. These exceptions will be detected during an initial scan of your posts before any fixes are applied. In some cases, manual changes may be required to clean up the Html before your fix is run. If a large number of such errors are found, an additional fee may be required to have them fixed:
- Duplicate attributes on a tag with different values.
- Opening tags that are never closed with a > character.
- Attribute values that are not closed properly.
- Certain non-printable unicode characters. These characters are often invisible in your posts but can result from copying and pasting from Word.
