END of: YllwChlk

With deepest regret I must inform my followers, that since WordPress has removed the Classic Editor from this blogging service and mandated the use of their Block Editor, I cannot continue to write this blog.

The mandatory Block Editor makes writing in HTML extremely difficult, so much so that it is in no way worth my time and trouble STRESSING over the errors it continuously displays.

Hell, even trying to write regularly is a stupendous round the merry go round wack a melon routine. WordPress now wants you to make every single paragraph an ISOLATED block adhering to strictest editing functionality. So much so, that there is ZERO room for personal touch.

Until now it has been a simple case of COPY & PASTE from a pre-prepared text file directly into the blog page.

Unfortunately this world renown “blogging service” has decided to make the very practise of BLOGGING a twelve course meal with alien utensils.

Creating backups of all my posts is also now impossible, since even copying and pasting the same auto generated HTML back into the same post now only returns an error, because the WordPress manual Block Editor has somehow felt bypassed and deprived of loving attention.

WordPress have obviously done this in line with the Dotdonc agenda, to keep you online and increase your interactivity with your device. There is no other explanation for it, since they have ENFORCED a counterintuitive culture of superfluous engagement with the virtual interface.

You see, now blogging on WordPress requires you to poke around for hours on end even if you CAN understand their new zippity zappety jargon.

No copy, paste, publish here. No, no. It’s a Dictatorship Of The Deprivation Of Natural Consciousness. #dotdonc

Putting chalk to rock…

It has been wonderful writing for all my readers, but even myself, who has worked previously for TEN YEARS as a website administrator for various international websites, seriously CANNOT BE BOTHERED to waist all my hours away trying to make something now retarded, work.

I will however return to post an update for a new webpage dedicated to my latest and final Chess variant.

Best regards to all my readers, Simon Jepps.

  1. I liked your post only to acknowledge that I read it, albeit with dismay. I too am thoroughly unhappy about the WordPress decision to change to block editor. Why fix what was not broken? and furthermore what was the point. No explanation was ever given. What a poor decision!

  2. What can I say? What can I do? Firstly I won’t like this post. How could I? This is upsetting news. I went through the same misgivings as I had several drafts in the previous editor that I couldn’t edit properly because of the new editor. I was more than happy with the original editor and I didn’t seek change. I have adapted, but I fully understand and respect your decision. I wish you all the best mate. Happy harpin’ wherever that might be. Ol’ Shep Dawg Hisself

    1. Oh to write offline, copy and paste, thence hit publish. Nah this is retarded, even trying to apply classic format to an individual ‘block’ goes titts up.

      Thanks for stopping by Shep and for your condolences. Seriously though WordPress have lost the plot.
