What Have You Done, WordPress?

I just went to create a new post for friday Fictioneers, and I thought I had clicked the wrong button. The post creation is all wrong. It has changed completely! Where can I edit the title page location?

What have you done to my photos? I have gone from having used 3gb of space to having used 99.3mb! Where can I add Youtube links? Where can I add Twitter links? What have you done? There was nothing wrong with the post creation process. Please put it back!!

My tips pages are now useless as they are nothing like they are now! What happened to being able to start typing the categories and have them come up to save time? I can’t believe what you have done. You have destroyed the process of creating a new post. You have removed some of the categories and i have to add them again. I do not like this new creation process!

Even the Text window has changed.

Please, please, please put it back!


Don from A Pondering Mind has come up with a brilliant suggestion. There are two ways of creating a post in the old way:

Start the post as you normally would and then save it as a draft, and then go to the Dashboard, then select Posts on the left hand menu, and All Posts, then choose your draft and you can edit it the standard way.

The second way, is to go straight into the dashboard, select Posts from the left hand menu, and then Add New. This will create a post using the standard form. The proper way of doing it.

Thanks very much Don, I appreciate it.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unexpected

This week’s weekly photo challenge is “Unexpected“. After reading Zeebra’s post, I knew what I was going to post.

A couple of weeks ago, we had severe winds, just under hurricane force. One thing I wanted to do two or three years ago, was take a photo of a wave engulfing the lighthouse. So when I managed it, that was unexpected.

Ligo Haibun Challenge – Passing of years

The Ligo Haibun Challenge is hosted weekly by Ese and Managua Gunn. In three-week cycles, you have a choice between one of two phrases, one of two photos and one of two words. This week, the cycle is on words with the choice being either Mirror or Faery. As I plan to use the prompt for Ermilia’s Picture It & Write which is also a mirror. Please go see Ese and Managua, for more information. All images this week have been downloaded from the internet, and appreciation and credit goes to the artists.

Passing of Years

Forty years ago, I would not believe
Forty years ago, I would never try
Forty years ago, I would deceive
Forty years ago, I would never cry

fairy 1

Thirty years ago, I would never think
Thirty years ago, I would always hurt
Thirty years ago, I was on the brink
Thirty years ago, I would be so curt

fairy 2

Twenty years ago, I would always lie
Twenty years ago, I would be so rude
Twenty years ago, I would try to pry
Twenty years ago, I would speak crude

fairy 3

Ten years ago, I denied my origin
Ten years ago, I acted airy
Ten years ago, I hid within
Ten years ago my home was Faery

fairy 4

mythical beings
also need teaching right from wrong
and learn the way of life

Weekly Photo Challenge: Infinity

The Weekly Photo challenge this week is infinity, and I was looking as I was out at things that would go on forever. I didn’t see a lot, until I saw ducks and thought about the “Chicken and the egg” as long as there is an egg, there will be a bird, and all the while there is a female bird, there will be an egg. My daughter just pointed out a fault in this theory, in that it does not ring true if it is an alien. Picky picky hehe. Also, the amount of spots on the ladybugs / ladybirds seems to go on forever as they are climbing over themselves. If you want to have a go at the photo challenge, pop on over to here, and I will be putting 25 links after the photos.
