I used to be quite happy with my typepad account, but lately, I have found a few things that drive me up the wall:
1) Some time at the beginning of January, without a word of warning, typepad must have made changes to its software which converted all entry headers into hyperlinks. Not a bad idea per se, if it didn't come with the obvious design disadvantage of every header now being a certain style (different from your normal configuration as it follows the style set for all hyperlinks) and also being underlined. Any ideas how you could change this? I know I could change the hyperlink style in the CSS, but I am keen on keeping hyperlinks visible as hyperlinks in any other place. HELP!
2) This morning, I discovered that somebody must have hacked into my calendar module (or it might be a typepad-wide issue) - dates on which I haven't posted are now a link in the calendar and rather than linking to one of my posts, as they normally would, you're sent off to an external site (I have completely removed the module now, so can't tell you which site it is.) There are no other changes, as far as I can see, no posts appearing in the "recent posts" module or archives, but there are these links in the calendar module itself.
As far as I can see, this module is not something I can even change in the html, can I? So I am at a loss here - I have opened a help ticket with typepad and will keep you updated on this if they find a solution. But in the meantime, can you let me know whether you've come across this as well and how you've solved it?
PS: I have the highest level of access, ie typepad pro. This allows me to change HTML and CSS wherever I need to.
