Why your WordPress Document is not saving neither publishing
After anguishing in desperation and not making progress in my first WordPress blog (don't ask me where I have been all along), I started searching the internet. All the answers I could get were almost the same. Empty cookies, cache clearing blur blur! but all was in vain until I came to discover it myself through the hard way and perhaps a coincidence.

If this is the problem you are facing right now, then you are at the right place at the right time. Given that you can edit the appearance, themes and other changes with your site but you cannot create, edit and repair a blog to save, makes you desperate. Isn't it?
Cause of the Problem:
The cause of the problem can be found here WordPress Manager
Solution to the Problem:

Have you ever defaulted KRA procedure for not submitting returns in time? If your answer is yes! Then, if you have never received a 'payment defaulter reminder notice' asking you to pay for penalties in a given duration of time the violation was done, Yours might be on the way into your email account which you used when applying for KRA pin or maybe its already in the inbox waiting for you.
It is of uttermost wisdom to pay the penalty within the stipulated period provided (15 days) to avoid attracting more fines and interests amounting to tens of thousands.

There are a number of rehabilitation centres in Kenya [Check list] that can absorb as much as the number of drug addicts from our society. However, not many families with patients can afford the charges slapped on the bill voucher at the end of every month he/she is attended to. This is due to the fact that 46% of the Kenyan population live below a dollar($) a day.
The cheapest rehabilitation centres such as Hema in Gesonso, Kisii charge from Ksh 30, 000/Month to the most expensive ones lying along Nairobi, Nakuru and Kiambu suburbs charging anything above 45, 000/month plus hidden charges.
This calls for medical Insurance covers such as National Insurance Hospital Fund (NHIF) and AON (a Gaelic word meaning one). Even though medical Insurance covers can chip in to relief the sponsor, its impact does very little to the brim of negligence. NHIF for example, covers medical bills of the patient to the limit which depends on your monthly contributions and/or whether you are a private contributor or a civil servant. In most cases, it covers only medical expenses which will be approximately 4% (Ksh. 6000/=) of your total medical bill as an inpatient. With private contributors, NHIF only covers up to Ksh. 30,000/= in a year.
Am not conversant with AON since they are new players in this society neither the health centres accredited to offer their services. Therefore, I would most likely concentrate on NHIF accredited health centres.
1. John Mututho Empowerment Centre (JOMEC)
2. BSR - BRAIN SPINE AND REHABILITATION HOSPITAL
3. Precision Counseling Institute
4. ELDORET HOSPITAL
5. NAIROBI WEST HOSPITAL

Payment of application process fee is done online using Mpesa with each K.C.S.E candidate paying Kenya Shillings Five Hundred (Ksh. 500) (unless we are notified that it has been changed).
What KUCCPS does not tell us is the Safaricom fee and other expenses involved like internet costs and expertize. Some schools will charge students from Ksh. 600/= to account for hidden costs but overcharging is pure extortion. However what KUCCPS requires from each candidate to process for placement is Ksh. 500/= (five hundred shillings only) regardless whether its a degree or diploma programme.

Welcome back, we will now embark on filling the kuccps excel application template/form. The 2017/2018 form is a bit different from 2016/2017, it seems some changes were done and more columns were added.
We will be tempted to follow some of the 2016/2017 rules of filling the form because new guidelines for 2017/2018 are yet to be published however once they are out in our custody we will revisit this page to make necessary changes as a way of resisting assumptions.
The edited parts of this excel format form has categories, we are going to work from one category to another.
1st category: Degree program applied for;
Note the following regulations: (2016/2017)
Suppose Tom of index 11212100001 wants to pursue mechanical engineering at Jomo Kenyatta university, but due to the demand of the the programmes at JKUAT, clusters points may shoot up, that means, if Tom's cluster subjects couldn't make anything above 42.6000, he may not get a vacancy in the university, this now calls for alternative universities.
If Tom's cluster subjects are for example 40.345, he may apply for the same programme at Machakos University (37.087) and Technical University of Mombasa (39.662) in this case, he may have a chance to get selected to pursue his dream career.
What then will his career guider fill in the 'degree programmes applied for' category?
Note the following:
What do you fill in the category 'degree programmes applied for' in column 2, 3 and 4?
If Tom's quest for Mechanical Engineering fails, he may opt to for plan B, C and D. This means, he is allowed to apply other courses of his choice from the same university or different universities. Let's have an assumption for Tom's plans
2ST CATEGORY: diploma PROGRAM APPLIED FOR;
This category is straightforward and clear. The procedure here includes:-
Points to note
The document attached above will guide you to identify postal codes, county and sub-county codes
e.g. 0798012089 (MS Excel will truncate the zero on the left, don't worry, its a usual procedure -798012089 )
e.g. email@example.com (the teacher can use a universal school email because students may change this later in their portals)
Its blocked, you can't change anything
Its blocked, you can't change anything
What on earth can you comment anyway? Well,
For students who have enrolled for placement, leave this area blank. For students who have not registered, give a reason why they did not register.
If you have a problem with edit blocked columns, please contact KNEC immediately. It means even your KCSE and properbly KCPE certificates have errors. KNEC CONTACTS
