Griping and grouching follows. Be warned.
I’ve been in and out a few times over the last months, trying to work out where everything went. I’m no lover of sudden changes, and obviously wasn’t around when Things Happened.
I’ve been dodging the Block Editor for ages. I was going to start a music blog. Found I couldn’t use Classic Editor and just left it.
I absolutely hate things flickering and flashing at me. If I could shoot that little pop-up block I would. I did manage to find a tutorial on the block editor, but would have possibly got more out of it if it hadn’t kept telling me just how much FUN I was having. Not so much.
All I want to do is write a blog post, and put in a photo or two every now and then. That’s it. I have never wanted SyntaxHighlighter Code (front end only) in my life, and am unlikely to start now.
Possibly 2020 – apart from the year (first year…) of the pandemic – was the year of ‘let’s change our website and drive everyone up the wall’. I have been watching Ravelry doing a slow crash-and-burn with absolute horror. When (if…) I can figure out how, I will go back through my old posts recommending them and post warnings to stay away. I will do a blog post about it if I can get comfortable using the block editor, which at the moment seems unlikely.
And for some reason I cannot edit a draft post! I had an almost complete post that I can’t update. I had to work around using ‘cut and paste’ and a word document. I don’t doubt I am doing something wrong, but am very disinclined to put the necessary work in to find out what.
And please don’t anyone come in and tell me ‘But it’s so easy!’ I will not be responsible for my reply.
If I move to another platform I will post a link.
