Oh, WordPress, what hast thou done to me?

So, it looks like WordPress decided to wipe out a lot of the formatting I had set up and maintained for a number of years now. 

Gone are my customized header and the menus, and it’s not using the font I had picked.  Now, I’ve not modified anything, and in fact it happened while I was composing a post (I did a preview and thought I landed in a different blog).

I’ve tried setting things back, but the appearance panel locks up when I try and make changes. 

So, dear readers, please excuse the FSM-awful look of the site as I try and straighten things out. I’m hoping this is a temporary glitch. If they can’t recover my site as it was, I’ll be looking at alternatives. I’m getting tired of WordPress messing with stuff without asking and then telling me it’s an “improvement”.  All they are doing is screwing up, and if they don’t see that, I don’t think they are the same company I originally signed up with. 

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so.  I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards.   I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way.  That would mean something to me.

  1. Looks like they’ve taken your right to freedom of speech which I understand is part of your Constitution; probably if you sue for 100 million dollars they might come around to doing the right thing. Far as I can see the only one with the right to tamper with my post is me and the same goes for you and all bloggers.

      I won’t even go into how some of the changes they’ve made word out links and captions for older posts. I fix them when I come advertised them, but I have over 1,300 posts. I can’t constantly check them.

      The good thing is that few people go back and read my old stuff.


  2. and I don’t think this is an improvement far from it!

    I think some heads will roll at WP. Or at least they should. When they fix this I hope they could get back to the classic dashboard, too. New and improved? I don’t think so!


    • disperser says:

      They “fixed it” by letting me make changes back to what it was . . . although it still does not look right.

      I’m once more motivated to look at alternatives.

    There are so many others complaining.

    Yes, WordPress can be very annoying. Hope you either can get them to knock it off and restore your blog as it is supposed to be, or find another, more amenable group to work with, ejd!

      If only I had the power to have organizations do what I want them to do . . . personally, I think the world would be better for it, but I’m sure there are many who would not agree.

      I had stopped looking, buy now I might start my research again.


  6. Darn WordPress!!!
    Hope you can get things straightened out.
    (Love the title of this post!)


    • disperser says:

      Well, it is back up and running almost as it was before. I changed most of what I noticed, but it still looks a bit off from what I remember . . . then again, I don’t look like I remember either.

    You’ve got determination, so one way or another you’ll get what you want. At least, I hope you.
