Rules for  Just Jot  It January



What on earth  has  wordpress  done  to  the  way  we compose  our posts… I  am sorry  but I  hate change! I really,  really  do not  like  change  on  my  wordpress page! Why do  they  do this, why  do  they  change  formats …I did  not  ask  them  to  do  this, honestly I did not!

So what  do  they  think  they are playing  at? Is  this  a cunning plan  to  unhinge my  tenuous  grip on sanity. Are  they  trying to prize the  last  vestiges of me  being in  command   away  from me  so  they can toss  me into  the void  and watch  me  sink into the sloth of  despair.

NO, NO I am exaggerating,   I loved  the   way that  the page  for composing  posts  was set out I  felt  at  home  I felt safe! I knew  what I was doing , I  was in charge and in command .

Now it  resembles  what I have  to cope  with on  my  mobile ….WHY WHY?? It  is  not fair. I know exactly  what  will happen  it  will take  me time  but I  will begrudgingly  get used  to  this  format  and  then  just  when I  feel  safe  again  the  powers  that  be  at  wordpress will, without  a  by your leave or  a  tip of  the hat in my direction, change  the  format  again. I WANT CLASSIC BACK!

So I  ask why and  for what!

    I like this post and can relate.. I have linked Windows Live Writer to my blog and compose my posts there. I find it easier and faster.

    WordPress does weird things to one’s commenting as well! Lots of mysterious stuff they do. Lovely write!

    I don’t even realise anymore when they change things. Just go with the flow… Or at least I try 🙂

    Ugh. Something to look forward to next time I write a post. Why indeed. 😦 GRRRR!

    Good point; innovation can be carried too far, too easily…. This is exactly WHAT WordPress needs to hear….

    It has taken me a while to get used to the new format for new posts as well. I switch back to the old way on the WP Administration link and then click on Posts. I noticed it is easier to post videos from You Tube though. 🙂

      Well I always use note pad to post YouTube videos but if it is easier that will be good. Trouble with me is I hate change. xxxx

        Me too. I always say I am technologically impaired. So if something does not seem user friendly I resist. At first, I really did not like the new post format because I thought it discouraged people from checking out my whole blog site. I think all of us humans hate change. xo

    You nailed this right on the head! The last time I was away for a few weeks, I came back and felt like I was in a foreign land.

    I agree Willow… these changes are driving me crazy here at WordPress too. I get tired of learning new formats because of these changes. Grrrr… why do they always have to tinker with things that are not broken? Great post!

    I think that “new” editor is ugly and it’s hard to find stuff. I still use the old editor that you can get to thru the wp-admin page. No idea how long that will be around, tho… There’s a way to write your post in Evernote and use IFTTT to post it; if push comes to shove, I’ll do that, or I’ll bite the bullet, lease space somewhere, and install WordPress.org, which I’m pretty sure they haven’t messed with. It’d be a pain to move everything off WordPress.com, but worth it if it means not having to mess with so-called technical improvement…

      Yes John I have so called improvements!! I had stubbornly clung to the classic editing but sadly I no longer have that option open to me! I am afraid I find it easier to keep everything in one place but might have a word with my lads ( both programmers to see if they have any advice) DOH! I don’t like change!
