Missing Comments on other peoples posts and WHAT THE HEFF, WORDPRESS???

Since I came back from my interval in blogging, WordPress have made some changes. None of which I’m at all impressed with.

Firstly … I preferred the original style of making a blog post, where I could clearly see the tool bar, which appeared at the top of the post I was building.

If I wanted italics, I could click the button. If I wanted BOLD – another button … if I wanted to put a quote in – another button. And … if I wanted to add a photograph to a post, in a particular place, I could do so, really easily.

But now … I cannot find the button to insert a photo. I’ve managed to find BOLD and italics (as you can see).

But … what the heff is a ‘BLOCK’ when typing a post? Is it what us normal people call a paragraph? If so … call it a paragraph so that we’re all reading from the same page!

I was bought up with the thought of, and am still a believer of:-

IF IT AIN’T BROKE, DON’T FIX IT!

I need IDIOT PROOF instructions on how to preferably: A) switch my blog posting options back to the original system which I knew, loved and could work without having a University degree in WordPress sillyness. …. OR B) Idiot proof instructions on how to insert a photograph in my post, where I want it, and GET MY £^&(*@ BLOG BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS before I blow a fuse and give up blogging for good. I want to blog for pleasure. Not for a meltdown and sweat & stress. We all have more than enough stress in our lives right now, without WordPress giving bloggers a big dollop of stress on top of it.

SECONDLY ….

I’ve been busy going round various blogs that I follow, clicking to like posts, and making comments on the more recent posts I’ve missed. However … I became aware that I wasn’t getting any responses to comments I’d made on some blogs of people who I know would normally reply back to comments I’d made on their blog posts. This appears to only be happening on WordPress blogs.

I went in search of comments I knew I’d made …. and low and behold – there were no comments from me anywhere. I could see that I’d clicked the ‘like’ button, – but the comments I’d made had completely disappeared, like some sort of magic trick.

Is anyone else having this problem on WordPress blogs? And … if you have had the problem, how did you solve it please?

The owners of much loved by me blogs, must be wondering why I haven’t been commenting, when I actually have! Or at least, I’ve tried to. I’ve typed out comments and submitted them, and they look that they’ve been submitted, but they just disappear.

Your help would be very much appreciated.

#Wordpress I hope you get to read this because I bet that I’m not the only person who’s disappointed in your new changes. You haven’t improved things, you’ve made blogging a thoroughly unpleasant thing to try to be part of and be involved in.

Words I love to read:- “Your Internet Service is Down Right Now”

Actually noyour internet service is probably working fine and dandy, it’s just mine and several hundred Virgin Media customers who are paying for a service which isn’t being delivered.

Since around last week in March we’ve had pixellated TV and the very worst Internet/Broadband access we’ve ever had – and that’s including dial-up!  With Dial-Up you could pop off and make a cup of tea, but still hear the comforting squeaks and pips of the connection attempt as it was happening.  Now, we sit and watch that little icy blue circle spin around and around and around and …. on and on until your eyes are bloodshot,  all your teeth fall out, your hair goes grey and all your little grey cells have popped inside your head, turning you into a zombified being of fierce anger!

Rubbish media supplier

So dearest readers …  it is this which is keeping me away from my blog, and not me being an old lazy-bones!

The Internet Gods must be smiling on our house this afternoon for the little yellow exclamation mark has disappeared from over the icon for ‘internet access’, so I’m taking the opportunity to say hello to you, send crafty vibes and tell you that I wish many blessings come your way, and say of course that when I’ve loaded my photos (and have internet access), I shall be here with craftiness and inky fingers. (normal situation. lol).

In the meantime … sending you love
