WordPress has changed it’s default posting editor to a new type which they call “Improved.” I call it less efficient.
There’s a graphic at the bottom to show you how the two look different.
The new mode has a cleaner interface, but that’s because they got rid of a lot of options and force you to click on lots of buttons to get back what you had in the classic mode.
I am able to do everything on one page in the classic mode, but not in the New mode – I have to open and click on all sorts of buttons to do the same thing.
Luckily they still allow you to use the classic mode.
I hope they don’t take that away from us in the future.
- There is a whole toolbar that is gone in the new mode. Changing font, underline, text color, justify are all gone.
- Add poll, contact form, location – all gone.
- Save Draft and Preview – hidden down at the bottom of the page – put it up at the top where it’s easy to see.
- Categories – instead of being open and easy to see are hid under a couple of buttons.
