So, anyone wondering why I posted two theme choices today, I didn’t. Ol’ WordPress posted an error message.
you are not allowed to edit the jetpack_post_was_ever_published custom field
Okay. The error appeared out of the nether. I haven’t tried doing anything different than usual. I attempted different work-arounds and fixes to address the error. MEANWHILE, the post published despite the error message. So, huh. It has to do with posting to social media, apparently. Anyway…now you know.
