ME agenda: update on status of this site

ME agenda: update on status of this site

This site was created in June 2007 for ME patients, carers and advocates and provided information, resources and commentary on the political issues affecting the lives of UK Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) patients.

In 2009, my primary advocacy focus shifted towards monitoring the development of DSM-5* (published May 2013) and ICD-11 (currently scheduled for presentation for World Health Assembly approval in 2018).

In 2010, I created Dx Revision Watch (originally DSM-5 and ICD-11 Watch) specifically for monitoring the development of these two classification systems.

ME agenda site will remain online for its post archives (Post Index to approximately 980 posts) and for occasional, important information relating specifically to DSM-5, ICD-11 and ICD-10-CM.

I have a number of other WordPress.com sites:

http://suzychapman.wordpress.com/ status: Extension site for Dx Revision Watch for occasional, selected material.

Twenty-six soldiers of lead status: Extension site to ME agenda for occasional, selected material.

Read ME UK Events status: Archived.

Read ME UK Events was created in March 2008 in response to the considerable concerns surrounding the April 2008 Royal Society of Medicine conference on “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome” and to promote the various protests that were staged.

ME agenda site has been running on the now retired WordPress.com Themes, Garland and Enterprise.  The site is now running on WordPress.com Theme Franklin.

Update at July 16: WordPress has now fixed these issue with Garland theme.

This site (and my Dx Revision Watch site) run on the WordPress theme (template) Garland with the Custom Design upgrade which means I can modify Garland theme’s CSS.

On Thursday or Friday, WordPress implemented changes to some blog templates that enabled “infinite scrolling” – a site wide change being applied to WordPress themes that are suitable for its implementation.

Instead of displaying (in my case) the ten most recent posts, with the need to click for the next ten posts, “infinite scroll” automatically loads more posts.

I have deselected for this feature – I don’t like it and I don’t want it – so you won’t see many changes to the way in which the site functions.

You will see a button at the end of the tenth post for Load more posts and a link for Older posts and Newer posts. You can continue to access archived posts from the monthly Archive links in the right hand column.

There should be no problem when viewing the site in Chrome or Firefox. But there is currently a problem with Internet Explorer 8 and 9 (IE8 and IE9) which may be related to these recent changes or may be a separate issue.

This issue is affecting users of Garland theme and possibly some other themes.

If you are viewing this site in Internet Explorer 8 or 9 you are likely to see the following issues:

The site titles for both sites may be slow to load or may not load at all or unless the page is refreshed.

You may see no links at the bottom of the tenth most recent post for Older posts and Newer posts though you should see a button for Load more posts.

Down the right hand column, the Search box, Twitter feed, Recent Posts, Links, Archives and Meta are all displaying over in the left side column, and right at the bottom of the page, so you’ll need to scroll right down to locate these.

The default font for posts on this site is Verdana. Occasionally a post on Dx Revision Watch has been uploaded in Georgia and this may display for you in a larger font size than intended, for example this post Somatic Symptom Disorder criteria could capture millions more under mental health diagnosis.

Unfortunately WordPress Support appears to be closed until Monday, July 23, so this may take some time to get sorted.

In the meantime, if you have Chrome or Firefox browsers loaded please consider using these.
