Doubleplusungood!

If you are considering buying a WordPress plan—don’t. They ‘improved’ the post editor… improved it so much that it is unusable. The old one was simple and intuitive. This new one makes it difficult to do the most simple task… like preview. Takes three clicks now instead of one. Idiocy. Inserting an image now involves opening a huge sidebar and finding the insert image function. Previously it was right there at the bottom of the editor.

The new and ‘improved’ post editor reminds me of nothing so much as ‘Common Core’ math. Take a simple task and make it as difficult and complex as possible.

See? I thought I had finished my rant but wait! There’s more! I was going to add a category to this post but… I can’t find that function. It used to be in the right sidebar. There is no right sidebar now. Where the hell is the category function?

Wait! There’s more! I was going to publish this ‘as is’ and hit the Publish button. Did it publish? NO! A new sidebar opened with a pre-publishing checklist.

This is ridiculous!
