This atrocious platform has hijacked my site. HIJACKED IT, I SAY. I ranted a bit last month about being forced into using the freaking block editor (y’all caught the cloud of four letter words floating above that, right?). Then Thursday night I hit panic mode because my website would let me name a post but not type the body of a post and what good is that?
It was frozen all day yesterday and I was starting to write this post on my phone’s app when I had a eureka moment: WHAT IF it was only the classic editor that was frozen? WHAT IF writing a post on the block editor would work just fine? WHAT IF WORDPRESS HIJACKED MY DAMN PLATFORM AGAIN?
I guess there’s no way you could tell just by reading this but yeah, they did. These frockers (yes, a made up word but one that conveniently both meets the prompt needs and describes my WordPress feelings at the moment) stole my ability to write on the system I prefer by simply locking it down. Now technically they’re not demanding payment to release it so I guess this isn’t ransomware or piracy or whatever. Then again I do pay for a WordPress plan and for my domain name so isn’t it?
LET ME WRITE IN THE CLASSIC EDITOR, DAMMIT, I’M NOT HURTING ANYTHING. Lawd.
Linda hosts Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week’s prompt is “roc.” Find a word with “roc” in it or use it as a word all by itself. Enjoy!
