Sunday Salon / Sunday Post – WordPress Frustration – Weekly Rewind – Mail Call


The Sunday Salon used to be a meme but was getting so huge it became unmanageable, so it is now a Facebook group that has become an
informal week in review gathering place for bloggers.

It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by
Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer
~ It’s a chance to share news~
A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.


WordPress Frustration

If you use WordPress to create your blog you know the BIG editor revamp was released on December 6. I was excited by all the hype and ready to learn all about the “block based” format. I looked over all the information leading up to the launch but still wasn’t prepared for such a huge change. I am not exactly a novice at computer/blog works but this new release made me feel like a complete idiot.

After hours spent trying to compose just 1 post, I was so thankful for Classic Editor Plugin. I installed it and activated it and completed my post in just minutes. Classic Editor is an official WordPress plugin, and will be maintained until at least 2022. That gives me plenty of time to either learn the new version or maybe they will have an entirely new idea by then for the technologically challenged people like me.

Maybe December was not the month to release this “gift”. The stress of finding everyone the perfect present is enough, I didn’t need the extra stress of learning how to create my blog in a whole new way. 

If you had a different experience I would love to hear all about it.

  1. Thanks Lori, I saved the link for that plug-in. Although I’m not sure I can even use plug-ins. I upgraded to a paid version, but it’s still called personal. Probably has to be business to use those, ack, not looking forward to the new editor. I keep clicking the x for it to leave me alone! LOL (I love the snow that you and other bloggers have but again, it’s a plug-in I probably can’t install)
