I *thought* I had all my issues solved?
I did not.
It turns out that WordPress wasn’t letting me publish my posts easily. I kept getting notifications of “you are not allowed to publish these terms” when I even tried to *save* a document.
So for now I’ve dropped my writing site back to wordpress.com rather than just being a .com site. Maybe that will fix this issue?
At least I got to keep my theme this time.
