Clean Up Complete


As you possibly know at the end of May Gifted Resources website suffered hacking caused by vulnerability to exploitation in WordPress, the platform for both Gifted Resources blog and Sprite’s Site blog.

Because of the problems the blogs now have new addresses
Gifted Resources Blog

Sprite’s Site Blog 

Sprite’s Site also has a completely independent Sprite’s New Site on the Edublogs platform at

It means that we lost the blog internal links and I had to edit all the posts on both blogs to restore broken links. Gifted Resources blog with only 50 plus posts was repaired fairly quickly but Sprite’s Site which celebrated its fourth birthday in June had over 600 posts and took much longer to clean up.

It also had a flow on effect to links to the blogs which I gave during webinars, Twitter chats and included in previous newsletters. These will probably not be remedied.

I would like to (again) thank all the wonderful techie people who gave advice and helped to sort it out. A huge thank you to Jamie Tarling, my techie guru, who spent many hours working on the problem!
And also thanks to William Grant, Rick Freitag, Phil Hart and Jo Hart for more tech helpful pointers and to all the friends who checked progress for me and kept me feeling encouraged especially Hilde Buys from Denmark, Mary St George from NZ and Lisa Conrad from USA

And I would also like to thank the Twitter birds who worked tirelessly to clean up Sprite’s Site and produce the correct links.
