Allow me to explain the horror of the morning. I got up late as yesterday had been a day of troubles and a most of the night electricity loss.
This morning I got my morning roundup done and decided I would do what two different support chats had told me to do, I installed the plug in for the classic editor. Wonderful, that screwed everything up. I lost half the function of my blog. I spent the next five hours trying to restore it, change all the setting trying to get the functions back. I couldn’t get anywhere.
So I wrote up everything I had done and went back to the support chat. I got a wonderful person named Kate. Kate understood the frustrations I was having and after she fixed my blog she explained things to me.
When I had installed the editor it moved me from the WordPress servers that handle none plug in blogs to the servers that handle plug in using blogs. I lost all the functions the first serve gave me and it opened up plug in functions I never had. I couldn’t reset it because I couldn’t move servers from my end. She moved the blog back and I regained everything, but sadly still have the block editor problem.
Well then we talked about the new editor and my frustrations. Unlike the other tech support people she did not cope the take it or leave attitude. She explained that WordPress had not done a good job of introducing it and that people were frustrated and angry and she understood it. We talked about how it interfered with the type of blogging I do. She really was helpful and showed me how some changes had been made that will now make my blogging a little less frustrating using the editor. ( However in writing this post instead of having to just hit enter to write a new paragraph and control B for bold type on the fourth paragraph I had to go into the block editor and bring up the classic menu to get the bold writing.) She gave me several work around, and she admitted they were more steps but said it was the only way she could help me. I flat out asked her if we were wasting our time complaining and if the company was even listening to the complaints and she wouldn’t answer that. So I think I understand what that means. So far the best support chat person I have had. Now on to comments that are several days late. I did manage to make more ice cream yesterday. Hugs
