Wordpress only loading in basic html format!?!

  1. My wife and I moved to China about a month ago. We used wordpress because it is not blocked by the government here. When we first arrived wordpress worked great but for the last two weeks when we go to wordpress.com it only loads with basic text and links. Although it sort of works and we can post text we cannot post pictures. Does anyone know why this could be happening? Any ideas or help would be much appreciated! The blog is a supposed to be an outlet to communicate with our families, and we would love to get it working again!

    The blog I need help with is keriinreallife.wordpress.com.

    There's your explanation.

  3. I read on your other thread that you already tried a proxy. Still, you may want to try any of the other solutions offered in the link above.

  4. Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't think that living in China is our main or only problem-- or if it is even the problem. We're here with a program and everyone else in the program (about 50 of us in different areas all around China) uses wordpress and it works fine for them. And like I said, it worked fine for us for the first few weeks were here. Also, for six months before moving here we followed the wordpress blog of someone who was living in China (so we could get an idea of what life was like here, and to know if wordpress was consistent for them. which it was).
    I think there must be a problem with my wordpress code or something, I don't understand that junk but that's my guess since it doesn't work in a proxy either.
    Any other guidance would be great!

  5. Unfortunately, that sounds exactly like China's block.

    China has been known to block WordPress.com blogs, and there is nothing that we can do about this. As a workaround, you can try using a proxy to access the blog. The following link provides a list of some options that you may be able to explore and/or use:

    I really hope this helps and you'll find a way to access/update your blog!
