Morning Meanderings…. Oh WordPress…. Beep Beep Boop To You.
Good morning! CHILLY here in Minnesota the past few days however rumor has it that the weekend will warm up. I hope so. I am ready to be wearing Capri’s and light shirts and not having to dress in layers just in case.
For WordPress users such as myself, this post is kind of for us. However, Blogger users hang out too as for years I have read posts or tweets on grumbles about Blogger and I thought “I am so glad I chose WordPress!”, now I too have a grumble.
Quite a while back WordPress changed how you created and edited a new post with a shiny new version that has a “beep beep boop” message while it is processing and is very different to use and format.
However, WP gave an option to click a sweet little button that said Classic Mode and my world continued in happy blissful blogging peace. That is, up until couple days ago when WP decided that it was time to suck it up and convert to the new ways of doing things. (The WordPress version of “drink the Kool Aid!”
Now I have been looking up ways on line to change it back to the way I like to use it. I did find a way that you can go through your dashboard to the new posts, or edit from the dashboard to bring up the old way, however if you do this from the main page you will be directed to the new way.
Beep Beep Boop.
There are other posts about this and one I read this morning that explains ways around the new editor but really why change what is already working well? Many WP users are not happy about this messing with what isn’t broke.
If you are a WordPress user and know easier ways to return to classic mode, chat with me. 🙂
This morning I am enjoying a big cup of COFFEE after a fairly restless night. I have my friends two dogs staying with us while she goes to see her daughter in Korea. Yes, that means I have 5 (FIVE!) dogs in the house for the next week and then they will go to another friends house to share the duty. Last night the two newbies to the house were restless, crying, and wondering the house most of the night. Hopefully tonight they will feel more adjusted. 🙂 They are small so they do not take up much room… just a lot of activity in my home. 😀
