They are getting rid of classic editor!

My minds in a whirl! I’ve been happy with the old classic editor.

WordPress happiness helper? How will WordPress feel if all the classic users leave, stop paying? It is only a website after all.

Apparently old blog posts will still be editable with the classic scheme.

Why have we got to do it? Don’t we have any choice in the matter? Not all of us are tech savvy. I will have to keep asking for tech help if I have to change. That will cost more time and money. Enough said ?

I can’t do this on my phone

I’m confused, this is my confused face. I can’t find some of my settings although this seems to be the classic version of WordPress I am still irritated and lost. Bits of information and buttons are missing….

Sigh

Why mess it up? I’m getting too fed up with it! Not a good attitude for a happy new years eve.

Classic versus block?

alphabe5 72

WordPress is changing. They are going over to block editor. Those that, like me, like using the simple classic editor can choose ‘classic block’ whatever that means. Apparently you have to choose it as an option. Now I can share my favourite podcast (I don’t have one and I’ve never heard one). Not all of us are technically minded. WordPress should be easier to use. Not harder. It’s like you learn a language only to be told there will be no vowels (vwls) from nw n. Ts sy whn y knw hw…… I saw a post about it in WordPress reader and replied :

Why? How? I’m not technical. I pay for this service. I’ve tried block editor, its horrible. I don’t understand it. Lots of us on here feel the same way. I feel we are not even considered let alone listened to.

Will anyone bother to listen, or are we, like classic editor, obsolete?

And, it’s back!

Well, deleted some more images and ‘classic’ is working again. But is anyone else having problems ‘liking’ people’s posts. I get a lot via email, and WordPress either throws me out as I try and click like, or I have to log into WordPress. I’ve just had a comment from someone else with the same problems. I’m going to let the ‘happiness engineer’, who is looking into my other problems, know about the various issues.

Classic editor gone again

Yes, it’s gone again. I’ve deleted several posts and photos in my media file. I’m running at 74% full. Like toilet paper, when something goes missing, it can leave you in a sticky situation.

Anyway I need to go shopping. The fridge and freezer are empty. I’ve tried not to go because I’m not really supposed to go out. But I have to collect tablets and try and do a weekly shop.

I don’t know why I’m fussing over this. Lately I’ve found WordPress is a bit glitchy. Failed to save draft is another message I get. I wonder if there is a simple guide to WordPress? A sort of encyclopedia to give you information…

Hey Ho!

I can’t use classic editor?

For some reason my phone won’t load the classic editor page. I’m not sure what’s wrong. I’ve deleted a lot of photos in case it’s a memory problem. I’m going to try and post this as a local post and hope it publishes to my blog. I’m not really happy doing it this way because I struggle to get into categories and tags…. So I don’t have ‘clues’ to let people know what I’m writing about. Plus I’m not sure I will be able to post an image?

I would appreciate some help and advice please. I’m slightly lost!
