An Open Letter To WordPress

I’ve been using WordPress for a long long time, although under different blogs and names, at least 5 years if not more. I can remember when everything you needed was right at your fingertips no matter where you were on your blog. Like everybody else that has commented so far I do NOT like the new changes and I also agree that the powers that be seem to be more interested in newer bloggers that don’t really have an invested interest in stats, comments and such and they haven’t yet figured out how important community is to their fledgling blog and the direction that WP has gone recently, they will never understand that. I do not pay for my service here, I use the free option, on this blog anyway. I also have a self hosted blog. I’m in the majority here when saying that WordPress needs to stop tinkering with a good thing and put it back to the way it was before. I don’t even use the New Post option on WP now, I use LiveWriter and post from there. As for keeping up with stats, I’m right there with y’all, I hate the changes and the extra clicks to get to where I want to be.

Ok, I’ll hush now. Great post!

Below, you will find explanations as to why your improvements aren’t improvements sorted conveniently by feature.

Post Editor

Let’s talk about this “Beep beep boop” post editor nightmare with less than half the functionality of the old editor. Thankfully, you haven’t taken away the old editor yet. However, I fully expect that one day, I will go to write a…
