Escalating problems with slideshow, media size, and authors

  • Author

    Over the past 3 months, the site I have been put in charge of has started developing bugs that have come out of nowhere and stumped myself and others.

    The first problem is that our main page slideshow of top stories no longer rotates, despite the theme settings stating that it is still set to auto-rotate. When you click on the small directional buttons in the top right hand corner of the highlighted image, it only adds a hash tag to the URL (not sure what this means, but hey, hopefully it helps).

    The second problem is that sometime in the span of 3 months the maximum amount of media we can upload for an article has rapidly decreased from 64-32 MB to a mere 8 MB. Nothing I’m aware of has triggered this change.

    The latest issue, happening just recently, is that now when I select the author I want the article to be posted by, the name is selected like normal in the editing phase, but when published, it only shows my name (the administrator who posted the article). Essentially, the editing shows the author I want the article to be “posted by” like normal, but the final product shows that the article was posted by me.

    I’ve heard possible solutions varying from lack of memory to contacting the hosting service. Assistance would be greatly appreciated.
