Breaking free of perfectionism means practicing anti-perfectionism. Here goes nothing.
There’s an annoying bug in WordPress 5 that’s popped up a few times for me lately and I finally sat down this morning and decided to see if I could figure out what the heck is going on. I found mention of it at the WordPress site, but it’s an eight year old bug thatContinue reading “WordPress 5 bug that’s messing up my publish dates for newly published draft posts”
This is a test post that I’m posting before I make a fool of myself complaining about a WordPress bug. I’d like to see if it’s reproducible before I publish that draft! This post was already a draft that I made on January 1st, but never posted, so it fits the bill for what IContinue reading “A test post that turned into a post about writing and trusting the process”
I wrote a long post about how I was abandoning WordPress a few days ago, and then I started the process by creating some HTML5 templates for one of my websites (the easiest to convert), but after two days of fiddling, it hit me hard that I don’t really have time for this. I amContinue reading “I was all set to be a rebel and then I realized I don’t have time”
Unless I’m missing something (entirely possible), you can no longer select a post from a list of older content by using the link options when you create or edit a link in the new WordPress editor. You can only search for the content, and if you can’t find it, well, you’d better open another browserContinue reading “Where’d the link options go in the new WordPress editor?”
I wrote what I thought about the WordPress 5.0 update and the new block editor in my own previous post. I’m not satisfied to be unhappy about the change all by my lonesome. So here are some links to other people’s reviews and thoughts about the new editor. Reviewing Gutenberg: Is WordPress’ New Editor UpContinue reading “Reviews and comments about the new WordPress block editor”
I am torn this morning about whether or not I want to update WordPress to version 5.0. I did the update on a smaller site I have (it has about 3 posts) and it went well. No issues to speak of. I also created a post with the new block editor (which I had alreadyContinue reading “Should I update to WordPress 5.0?”
After reading another post in a forum where someone has had a WordPress site hacked, I felt compelled to write this post. Lots of authors let others set up websites for them and have no clue how they work, and the designer/developer decides to use WordPress to build the site because WordPress makes it easyContinue reading “Some things to keep in mind about using WordPress for your author site”
I want to make a success of my 500 words a day minimum. So it’s time for some triage.
So I ran across mention of WordPress 5.0 and the new editor that’s going to be in it and I was immediately overcome by visions of fear and loathing for something that was sure to ruin a good thing. :-0 Then I followed up on it, downloaded the add-in that’s available (Gutenberg) to give itContinue reading “Thoughts on WordPress’s new Gutenberg editor”
I’ve changed the site theme for Perpetualized. Ain’t it great?
Sometimes WordPress bugs me; this is one of those times.
And today I discovered that no matter what I do, I can no longer delete tables in the visual editor of WordPress. This matters because tables that look quite small and should be able to be deleted with a simple highlight and delete are often a pain in the butt to delete in the textContinue reading “Another WordPress bug to bug me: I can no longer delete tables in the visual editor”
WordPress updated. It might have left behind a problem.
Mistakes, oh how they shine.
A theme changed happened. You probably didn’t notice. I like it.
Sometimes good ideas come back to haunt you.
WordPress is not my friend.
Ah, so I was looking at some stuff this last week and realized I had let a few things slip by me when it comes to site footprints. (Notably, not footprint, which would imply how large my site is and how much space it takes up on my hosting plan, which is not what I’mContinue reading “Footprints and Your <head>”
Updated to WordPress 3.3 and I like what I see. :)
