This week marks the second time that WordPress has chosen a new editing format as default. (Café Babylon is on WP blogging software.)
The first time I’d gone onto forums of those who’d loathed the new turquoise teeny-bopper one and had found suggestions to work around it to be able to get back to Classic Editor. Now the default is: Block Editor.
Having done so again, I’ve discovered that the only way I can get the Plug-in to revert to Classic Editor…is to upgrade to Business from my Premium, which already costs $169/yr that we can ill-afford. Upgrading to Business costs another $300 yr.
The new Block Editor is not only unwieldy and ugly, but i unusable in that I can’t access my media files which must have 500 images in them by now, along with a boatload of other disadvantages to tedious and boring to mention.
I won’t pay their extortion money, so please be forewarned: the nine-step process I have discovered requires that I first publish a new diary, then am able to go back to laboriously tweak it. Meaning that for readers and followers/subscribers:
A post you receive by email…may not really be here when you click through.
My apologies in advance; please know I’ll do my best. I will add that it’s all depressed me, and my psycho/spiritual condition is dark as the smokey air outside. Further depleting my spirits is the fact that so many people are are jubilant over the fact that POTUS (and a list of other Republican senators and reps) has Covid, and they hope he dies. I find it unseemly and indecent, although if the most famous Covid doctor in the world, Bill Gates, were to test positive, I’d find the irony…epic. ;-)
Yes, POTUS is a monstrous sociopath in so many respects, as are Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, but they are but symptoms of a capitalist duopolistic system that we’ve collectively permitted to rule us.
