So I have been forced onto the dreaded BE. I naturally hate that, but this is my experience so far. For one thing, I had to choose ‘Edit’ to generate a title after publishing the post. And I cannot access categories and tags, even though they appeared the last time, but now choose not to do that.
On the left of the new post page, there is a big + sign. Click on that, and choose ‘Classic’. Then you get something sort-of resembling the beloved Old Editor.
Proceed as normal, and ignore any weird windows that pop up. Add your categories and tags as usual then save draft and publish. Except you may not be able to add categories and tags, but WordPress couldn’t care less about you, don’t forget that.
It’s not the ‘Classic Editor’, and of course I hate the faff. But we apparently have to live with it. Sometimes, the option to add tags and categories shows up like it used to. But on this occasion, it didn’t bother. WordPress can ‘do one’ as far as I am concerned.
Do I still hate and despise WordPress for doing this pointless change?
What do you think?
See you sometimes, or maybe not. I doubt I will be renewing my paid plan, if this crap is what I am supposed to tolerate.
Where have the Categories and Tags menus gone? They were here before. This is not supposed to be some Agatha Christie game, and I am already sick of it.
