Add New the drop menu has classic editor for a new post. If somehow there is a trick for editing existing posts with it that would be nice, ….
Wait a minute, now classic editor is back for old posts …. Hmmm….. maybe someone is listening! IS EVERYONE GETTING CLASSIC EDITOR BACK?
Thanks to our community member commenting below “Respect” we may stick around a little longer.
WE REFUSE TO SUCCUMB TO THE BLACKMAIL BY WORDPRESS.COM and we will not write another article other than this notice and a note of where we have moved to in protest to the blackmail WORDPRESS.COM is using upon us. How is this for advertising? For some months now wordpress introduced a very horrible way to edit, which I am using now, and made it really hard to start a document, then exit, then edit it with the traditional very functional editor they now call Classic. Since not enough people I suppose adopted it or bought a subscription to the site, they now removed the classic editor and made it available as an “addon” feature to the paying subscribers. Decisions about “how to make money” are hardly challenged by logical/rational arguments, they are solely made by the money maker. If hundreds and hundreds of readers every day of the year who visited this site, getting exposed to all this wordpress advertising, wasn’t enough of payment to provide us with “classic editor addon” (what wordpress was like for the past 10+ years) then we must make our own decisions and somehow end this relationship before it turns more abusive and exploitative. Till we locate a healthier host for the site, feel free to comment and contribute here. An obvious notice will also be posted unless WordPress decides that part of the extortion scheme they are exercising will be to disable the site all together. 1 thing is for sure, the next site will not be using wordpress, not because it is poor software but because the owners of this software are using such methods, like common street thugs or the mafia. Even the mafia in most respects doesn’t act this way. Our loss your gain (wordpress), our gain your loss! That makes a very poor partnership and an abrupt end of such partnership. We call upon the wordpress.com bloggers who share the same reaction to join us in protest against this extortion.
