[M.M.X.I.V. 206] Beep beep boop

Zooming in to the reason for the post.

The full screen as seen from my screen.

When I first joined WordPress, there was one interface for creating posts.  It had a lot of buttons on the top, and I found it very user-friendly.  One particular part that I like about it is the ease of inserting media and links from it, because the “link” button in the toolbar gives you an option of in-house links without having to type them out.

But now, the only way to get that interface, as far as I know, is to go to the Dashboard and click New Post from there.  The “simpler interface” I don’t particularly like, because of a few things:

  • The drop-down menus on the side of the interface are not as friendly
  • Tab completion is not possible on the “Tags” of this interface to what I can see.
  • Changing the slug (so as to make the permalink something less cumbersome) is done from the Advanced Settings, which again I do not appreciate.
  • Sharing on social media you have to toggle to On EVERY SINGLE TIME.  On the other interface, both are automatically ON.

Basically, all of these deal with the fact that Out-of-Sight-Out-of-Mind cause me to sometimes miss these technicalities when publishing on that interface.

However, there is one saving grace… the dancing ellipsis do amuse me.


Today is the two-hundred and sixth day of M.M.X.I.V.  That makes twenty-nine weeks and three days.

Today is the eleventh day of the Character Building Trials.  That makes one week and four days.

  1. I hate the changes (tell me how you really feel !!). I can’t even tell if my work is being saved, and the tag thing doesn’t work at all. WHO is clamoring for so many unnecessary uchanges?? It’s certainly not the bloggers I know! Having to go to the Dashboard just to get a simple list of your posts is yet another time-waster. I’m so frustrated, I don’t even enjoy their Beep Beep Boop attempt at humor!


  2. Agreed! I loved the old way, I hate the changes. I just went to post and for a moment I was completely lost. I had to click on all the buttons to sort it out in my head.
    I guess we’ll get used to it, but why? Why does everything that works well have to change?
