Thank you. I thought I subscribed to a feed from this question and I am just looping back. Apparently all my customizations got scraped and now I can't get any changes to save. I can't activate the feature page what ever I write in the boxes after I hit save and check the site are wiped out when I go back. Can't limit post length, select or deselect excerpts..actually anything I try. It appears that all the plugins I am using are current but I will say that after several months of ignoring the site I went in one evening and updated everything and added a couple of plugins but didn't activate them and then did the automatic wordpress upgrade. You can see the site here http://cheririley.com
When I went into my host provider cpanel and checked for a backup even though I had weekly backups checked it said "no backups because my file was too big". three clicks into the panel I see that but on my wordpress admin interface it didn't indicate they were not able to be done. I really don't like siteground either.
I appreciate any suggestions.
