A bizarre bug in a Firefox plugin pretty much 86ed this blog for anyone using IE in the last month or so. I installed the Bitly Preview Firefox plug-in, which expands shortened urls in web pages so you can see where they’ll take you. Seemed useful, since I’m active on Twitter and they show up there all the time.
Anyway, the fix was to remove or upgrade the bitly plugin; load up PHPMyAdmin on my server and run the query:
select * from wp_posts where post_content like ‘%bitly%’;
then, since I only had a handful of matches (my last five posts), select them all and remove the line at the bottom of each post, which was a script containing the text:
Definitely one of the odder glitches I’ve experienced!
