So as I was reading through the posts in my Reader this morning there was more about the latest WordPress changes. At this point I had not been affected, or maybe that should be infected, with their “new improved dashboard”
I followed a link to another post “Navigating The Waves” on “Weekly Prompts” where there was a fix to allow people to keep on using the old page. As I’ve mentioned before I like to write via the WP Admin page and apparently the new version has eliminated this, forcing people to use the new sidebar on the right hand side of the page. I don’t like it because when I’ve used it before I have been unable to save my post to drafts and come back to it later.
I bookmarked the old page for both of our blogs and then went on to write an RDP post. When I finished I found that change had come to my blog, literally within the hour of my learning about the problem WP admin was gone.
Luckily I can continue to use it, at least until WordPress get rid of it forever like they do every other feature we like but I am writing this post via the new improved version to see if it will let me save and come back.
Well, I went out and came back again. You can save your draft while working on it and there is autosave but if you don’t publish right away you just exit the post and it is there in drafts.
I did like the old sidebar better though so I will be using Sue’s links even though it will probably involve keeping two windows open while I’m writing. Thanks to Weekly Prompts for providing a page of “How To” fixes for blogging related issues. If you are having issues you might like to pay a visit.
I’ve been intermittently using the “new” one and I still don’t like it. Text works, but photos don’t and so much of my work is photography these days I don’t know what I’ll do if they don’t fix it.
