WordPress Problems Again

WordPress has done it again. As of Sunday afternoon, the Classic Editor has become unavailable. Again. I’m beyond disgusted, have tried to get WordPress Help to no avail.

DAMN WORDPRESS. All I want to do is make a simple, old fashioned blog. A few words and a book cover image. Why do they have to make it so damned hard?

I’m giving myself a couple of days to keep trying – I had a nice short story post half done for Wednesday – and if I can’t get it straightened out I’ll have nothing more to do with WordPress and this blog will be GONE.

  1. I’m so sorry you’re having so much trouble. with this. I had exactly the same problem with WP editor, since I much prefer Classic Editor too. Here’s what I did to get back to Classic Editor:

    1. Start with Add New Post (It’s under the ‘Posts) heading on the left side of the home page.
    2. Create a title for your post.
    3. Push ‘Save Draft’ (Top right side of page)
    4. Now type: http://tipofthewinnk.net/wp-admin and go to that page.
    5. You should see a heading called ‘At a Glance’ at the top of the page.
    6. Under ‘At a Glance,’ you’ll see ‘____ posts.’ Click on that.
    7. You’ll then see a list of your posts, and you can edit them with classic editor.
    It’s a bunch of steps, but not that hard. I hope this helps!

    I have said it before. WordPress wants coders, not bloggers on its platform.

    • You’re right, which is too bad as they began as a nice blogging platform. I’m looking at Wix, Weebly and some others, but they all seem too commercially oriented. I’d hate to lose all the media and articles I’ve invested in WordPress over the years, but if I have to, I will.

  3. I have had my problems with WORDPRESS, too. Aggravating!

    Sorry to hear that WordPress is being so contrary. As I said in my response to your comment at my blog, I would hate for you to stop blogging entirely. I would miss hearing about your varied reading.

    Which thing caused you to ditch the annoying Blogspot for the annoying WordPress?
