If you read my previous post, you should know that I got mad midway and stopped with the post. Why though ?
Stupid New WordPress Dashboard. I don’t like the new version. I simply hate it. It’s been acting up of late and what was previously a simple process of posting has now become a bloody messy issue.
- I am using IE 8 and I am having problems uploading pictures. Every time I’d upload a picture, this would happen:
Oh, I forgot, I cannot upload pictures with IE (which I am currently on). So, now I will have to switch browser and go to Opera. Wait a minute. Let me do that.
Ok, now I am on Opera. So lemme upload the pic.
If you are asking yourself, what’s wrong with this, this is how it should be,
As you can see, in the first of the two images, the Insert into Post button is missing. So I manage to upload a file, but have no way of inserting that into the post. Wow, really nice.
I also hate this feature of Gallery. It’s annoying at the very least. As George pointed out in one of his comments, you have to first click on an image to get a medium sized picture and then click on it again to get the original sized picture. Ridiculous and not many people clicking on the picture would know and even if they did know would want to click on the image a second time.
- Issues with Thumbnails:
I would upload images and insert thumbnails of them into the post only to find that you cannot click on it to enlarge it. I checked the code and the code was alright. I remember issues even in one of my previous quizzes where in spite of me re-uploading certain pictures, they refused to display properly.
This happened in my previous post too and I hated it. Had to insert the gallery later on which I simply hate.
- Gallery, no thanks
Another stupid issue. Once you have uploaded a picture, you have to immediately insert it into your post. If you make the mistake of uploading another picture, then both go and sit in the gallery and you can no longer upload the first picture separately into your post. Wunderba!! How very inconvenient.
- Word unwrap ?
One weird thing I noticed and this is what pissed me off the most was that as I was typing like I am right now, the line just went on like it happens on notepad when word wrap is not turned on. Once again, I checked the code and it was fine. I published the post, looked at in on different browsers and my whole page was now spoilt.
I know the service is free and has been good for most part. But then this is just ridiculous.
