WordPress 2.5

Bran’ Spankin’ New version of WordPress … I’m not a big fan of it. Hah. I hate to complain. I’m not against change. But I am against changing my workflow!

I just don’t like how much scrolling I have to do on the Write Post page. (I have to go all the way down there to add a password?! Or even to categorize my post? Which also involves much more scrolling…) It seems to me like there’s so much wasted space to the right … because I don’t use a lot of the stuff there, haha.

And the tags thing … maybe it’s just me. I’m used to Simple Tags. WP’s tag guessing thing is so slow. boo. Then again, Simple Tags could slow down my system a fraction of a second. But … at least the reaction to my typing, say, “bu” (completely random letters, yes), wouldn’t take a whole second (more?) to show up.

Also, why can’t I customize this page? I was able to change the last version’s around. Well, sorta. Going from one WordPress blog panel on this domain to another, the position of those things (widgets?) changed back to default. mrrr. But … theoretical customization, come on, people!

I dunno. I suppose I’ll get used to it. I have to, don’t I? *grin*

  1. Yeah, I kind of miss the old Write Post page. It might not have looked that great to most people, but I liked how everything was there above the fold. :/

    I guess my biggest complaint is that some of the plugins won’t work (i.e. 404 Notifier). T_T

  2. So I’m not the only one who feels that way! (Woo, I’m not so lazy! XD)

    Yeah, that’s usually the biggest problem for me when they update WordPress. Will my anciently old plugin work still???
