Once again WordPress has made changes to its site and once again I have to learn a new set of rules for writing posts and managing the dashboard. Why do they keep making these changes? Is there a groundswell for new rules that confuse WordPress users who are still learning the old rules?
For instance, on the old WordPress site there was an icon for special characters. Now it’s gone, so if I need a special character I either have to copy from an old post or import one if I can. A small thing, but a very annoying and and unnecessary step. Did they get rid of anything else that I might need later?
Also, when I was adding new posts to my menu, I could go to the dashboard then click and drag the new post to its spot on the menu. Now I have to tediously and manually inch up the new post onto menu past all the other posts. And I can no longer edit the menu heading, which I need to do to give a brief description of each post. How is this an improvement?
And who’s the blockhead who came up with block writing? It complicates my otherwise streamlined process by breaking my single text into a bunch of mini-texts that need to be stitched together like a quilt.
Anyways, thanks for listening to this rant. At least my internet is working again.
