Normally, I use the old editor window to create and publish my posts. I DO NOT like the new one. However, I’ve noticed this past month that even when I publish from the old editor, if I try to “edit” the post later, WP gives me no choice but to use the new editor window.
That being the case, I assume they are switching over to the new one completely very soon, so I’ve been trying to publish from it as well. But I often cannot get it to publish my posts when I tell it to. I keep telling it to publish “Immediately,” but it keeps trying to schedule a post for a later time. I have the problem most on this “Hangin’ Out With God” blog, but I have it part of the time on my “In Love With Words” site as well.
Is anyone else having the same trouble?
I’m supposed to start a new blogging class soon, teaching several students how to create and maintain a blog, and I normally have my students use WordPress — mainly because the people who blog here are so friendly and interactive. But if the editor window is not going to work correctly, I’m not going to be able to have my students use WP. They’ll be defeated before they start.
I can’t seem to find any place that lets me actually talk to a real technician who might KNOW what he’s talking about. All I can find are windows to type in a question to ask about the problem on a forum. One other blogger on a forum shared her ideas of possible solutions, but they didn’t work, and she’s as fed up with all this so-called “improved” stuff they’ve loaded us down with as I am.
If anyone has found a solution to the problem — or you know how I can actually communicate with a WP technician — let me know.
What I really wish — along with thousands of other bloggers apparently — is that they would just go back to what they had before this year and let us get back to simple blogging. Since all the changes, it takes at least 2 or 3 clicks in different places to get to things that were one click away before. And then things don’t work correctly.
If you have any practical advice, I’d appreciate your sharing it.
Thanks a lot.
