WordPress.. what the **** have you done?

Balu fired the initial salvo. WordPress has gone and changed the user interfaces. For simple folk like me, its takes a while to get used to. Plus features like putting images onto posts dont seem to be working.

As Balu says why couldnt they have let people use both interfaces till the new one stabilizes.

Grrrrr… maybe time to move to Blogspot?

  1. They’ve reinvented the wheel, Vijay. They’ve gone and fixed something that didn’t need fixing. And the worst thing is they’ve made the image loading a lot more complicated. Sure it’s sort-of faster to upload and you can upload multiple images at once, but there are too many steps involved now and positioning them where you want them is now a bit of guesswork. Bloody “geniuses”! Just as well it’s free, eh?

  2. Looks like they skipped the phase of testing due to inflation 🙂

    Don’t worry, they have heard from you guys and take it as a ‘next’ change to undo the changes !

  3. Hey are you still facing the image inserting problem?
    I can’t upload any images !! the screen freeze when I click on insert image to post. !!!
    Any solutions???? 😦

  4. @Xylene: Theres a roundabout way to do the insertion… first upload the image.. go to the tab that says “Media Library” select your image and insert into the post…

  5. I did it in another way. I first uploaded it, copied the link to the image, went back to the post. Clicked on insert/edit image( right next to the unlink icon), pasted the url and clicked insert !!
    whew !
    🙂
    Yours worked as well. ! 🙂 thanks

  6. Move to blogspot? Now why would you do that 😀 I am just hoping they fix the bugs fast (May be they should take help from Microsoft.. they are experienced in churning out with ‘bugged up’ softwares!

    @Xylene
    Now now u need to shorten your algorithm!

  7. I so have the same image problems 😦

    Thank heavens I have a mac at home, all I got to do is drag a picture into the post and write. But then again, that poses another problem – mood to blog or the thoughts flow only at work.

    Such ironies I tell ya..

  8. WordPress 2.5 may have some problems with image uploading and inserting, but it soon gonna be fixed / might have already fixed. But blogspot sucks. Trust me I used both.. WordPress is best!
