Bah!… and Humbug!!!

In an email from WordPress this evening …

‘…On June 1 we’ll be retiring our older WordPress.com editor and transitioning to the more recent (and more powerful) WordPress block editor…’

They do retain the option for us to use the Classic Editor though, so there’s that, though I’m guessing it’ll have a limited lifespan.

But in honour of the occasion, let me reiterate …

  2. I agree. I used the Gutenberg grossness for about a year before giving it up. Not sure I got the e-mail either.

    What! I thought we had ages yet… Don’t you secretly wish there was a better alternative to WP?

    How can I put this succinctly . . . WTF%^&*()_. AARGGGGHHH!!!!!! I have been using the old system for more than 7 years. I am happy. I do not want change. I am not a nice person when I get angry. Excuse me . . . I have to hit something.

    I just went to WordPress and it appears the old Classic version I have been using will still be available. Just opt for Classic. Whew. I left them a message. Now I need a cuppa tea!

    Yeah. I’ll have a double of each–. Oh, no. Just two Bahs and a humbug, please.

    At least we get to keep the Classic for a while… perhaps, for once, they listened?
    When I had my last long ‘chat’ with a ‘Happiness Engineer’ I may have made my feelings about the new editor a tad clearer than they might have liked πŸ˜‰

    Oh, that’s not good. I love the classic editor. 😦 I hope the option to use classic will be available for a long time.

      It might have some benefit if you’re a ‘social media influencer’ or some such nonsense, but most of the people I know/follow, myself included, want to write some words and maybe a few pictures, and that’s it!

    I’ve migrated on the basis I’d better get used to it. I’m broadly ok with it now even though it’s weaknesses are still apparent. I suppose I’m just naturally compliant…

  12. Yeah, I hate that new one too. I don’t do much blogging these days, though, so I guess it won’t kill me.

    I fear we’ll have to get used to it in the end, but maybe if we complain long enough, they’ll fix all the incredibly annoying bits. :/

  14. I tried the new one and gave up, mainly because I couldn’t find how to add tags and categories. 😦
