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

8 Apr

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?

    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?

    @Ray: Thats it !!!! Some of the widgets dont work either and I cant seem to update their content…hopefully they’ll fix it soon…

    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 !

    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???? 😦

    @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…

    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

    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!

    @Balu: Just kidding of course 😉

    Try windows Live Writer for blog posts, it has been very convenient for me including inserting pictures in blog posts 🙂

    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..

  13. Vijay April 12, 2008 at 7:26 am #

    @Ram: Will try it out…

    @rads: Always true same with me.. always in a mood to write when I am supposed to be working 🙂

    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!
