I always enjoy reading others’ ToT posts, but I have seldom remembered to write one myself. There is now a reminder on my calendar every Wednesday about writing a ToT post. Now to find three things to write about…
Three things that are annoying to me about the latest WordPress *update*.
Thing the first.
They took away the icons that I use all the time, like the onces for underline and text color, thereby forcing me to google “How to underline in HTML”. Such a drag, particularly for someone like me who likes the shortcut ways.
Thing the second.
It took me at least a week to figure out how to (reliably) get to the list of post categories — those things in the word cloud in the right sidebar. (Click on “Document” at upper right in the editing window; all the old things like categories, tags, etc., magically appear.)
Thing the third.
The whole block thing. I don’t want every paragraph to be its own little entity that I can save and reuse, and I don’t need a new shortcut icon to insert a new paragraph; I am perfectly capable of moving the cursor to where I want the new para and hitting Enter. Really, I just want all the shortcut icons that used to be available to come back for me, like, say, the one to change the text color of a particular word or words (as opposed to an entire para)? And would it have been so hard to include a paintbrush icon so I don’t have to look up HTML commands every damned time?
