- Missing or Corrupted File Error
Subscriber Kurt wrote about a troubling, recurring file missing or file corruption problem:

I love the redesign of my Terry’s Computer Tips web site — it makes article posting and maintenance much easier than before. I’m glad I switched to WordPress and the Genesis Framework.
