  1. Just got an email with from WP about that Full Site Editing, and it has “Why we’re excited (and you should be too!)” as the headline. I certainly think we ARE excited about it, but maybe not exactly the way WP thinks! 😀

  2. Is that what they – in a recent email I got – call “full site editing”? I haven’t seen any changes yet in the eidting of may blogs and will have to see what will come.

      1. From what I read it is still a beta edition and can only be download for a new blog, but not (yet) used for existing blocks.
        So, for the time being I can be relaxed and leave my fire-spitting to later. 😀 [gallows humour] 😀

  3. I worked at a university in my previous life. The IT people were constantly breaking things that didn’t need to be fixed in the first place. This meant every time the end-user learned the program they changed everything and had to learn it all over again. We all were out for COVID and came back to more changes. One of the reasons I decided to retire. I figured it was a way for them to keep their jobs.

    1. I looked at Twan’s link, and think you will be okay with it. Fancier version of Blocky, and some tweaks you might enjoy. Just looks like gobbledegook to me of course! 🙂
      By coincidence, I got an email today from WP, offering to sell me an online course to work out how to use it!
      Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I have no doubt it is because WP is ‘fiddling around’ behind the scenes with this new ‘nightmare’, John. It won’t be long before we have to pay for the training courses they sell, just to be able to carry on blogging.
      Best wishes, Pete.

      1. Yep Pete, I never considered myself pc literate, just enough to get myself in trouble. I once deleted my blog by mistake but WordPress got it back online. At my age, confusion is part of my day so anything that WP does messes with my head.

  5. Doesn’t look good. I’ll carry on as I am doing for as long as I can: I think I’m using the ‘Classic’ block in the block editor, which just means I have to select it for every paragraph, and then format it in the html editor so it left & right justifies, the way I like it. A bit of a faff, but easy enough, so I hope WP doesn’t change that! Cheers, Jon.
