For two days now, I've had some major issues adding subscriptions to external blogs via WordPress's Following feature. In the past, I've never had any problem adding links to external RSS feeds, Tumblr, Blogspot, etc., but now, when I attempt to add an external blog, I just see this:
Followed 11 hours, 5 minutes ago
Followed 11 hours, 36 minutes ago
Followed 11 hours, 40 minutes ago
To make matters more annoying, I can't even delete these botched subscriptions. I've tried clicking the red X several times, but every time I refresh Following/Edit, the botched non-subscriptions re-appear.
As an experiment, I tried adding another WP subscription, and that worked normally.
