A Bit More Than Peeved

I’m sure you are all well aware that every wordpress user has been, or will be,  forced over to the new Block Editor. I’m writing this 2 days before that actually happens to me, so there might be some things I say here that don’t apply or have been figured out or whatnot.

I am not a fan of this, at all. In fact, ever since they introduced the block editor back in ’19 I’ve tried it several times and each time gave up in disgust.

I just found out that there is a “classic” block but that I have to go through a hoop or two to use it.

That link shows you how to get to the classic block and I figure I’ll be making use of it. Not as as good as starting everything automatically that way, but better than not having it at all.

My issue, however, is that I can no longer see at a glance, what days I have posts scheduled.  When I went to schedule posts in the old editor it brought up a calendar of that particular month and any day with an already scheduled post was highlighted in blue, thus visually, and more importantly, easily (!!!!!!) clueing me in to what days I should avoid posting the new post on. I’ve talked to a so-called expert and been told that ability has been removed. So I’m supposed to either open a second tab and look at my scheduled posts on my site (which doesn’t show a calendar, just a list of posts with dates in very small writing) or better yet, just get a paper calendar and write down when I’m scheduling posts. What a great step forward!!! That is what I call progress. I could swear….

A hobby shouldn’t be this frustrating.
