I haven’t got time for this

Or the patience either.
Somebody, or some bodies, have been tinkering behind the scenes at WP and now it is taking AN AGE for things to post, load, read and identify let alone log in.
Then the screen starts rolling and I’M NOT TOUCHING ANYTHING.

I was reading (or trying to) a post yesterday and the screen changed FIVE TIMES. It took over three minutes and five attempts to load anyway, then the pictures flashed and the font kept changing like some demented set of traffic lights!
I had a message in my reader of 7 new posts. 6 of those were the same one.
Posts I’d already read kept popping up as new ones (one in particular 4 times yesterday), and now we have a bloody rainbow at the top of the screen.
Also, the dreaded ads are back.

You, at WP, are draining my time with all these unwanted ‘quirks’ as they load, all of  which are quite frankly becoming annoying.
It wasn’t broke. Why did you feel the need to ‘fix it’?


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Hmmmmmmmmmm …………. no problems here (yet)! Firefox does screw around periodically resulting in a total freeze up. Restarting Firefox solves the problem but anything that was not saved = gone!

  2. I’m with you. The WP gods are always tinkering, and it is very annoying. I hate that rainbow at the top of the screen – if I wanted rainbows, I would have put them in my own header.

  3. Oh, dear, P, have you gone onto the support page to contact anyone in the forums? They’re usually quite quick to respond and help out.
    I feel for you – as I know firsthand (and I think most of us do) that feeling of wanting to chuck your computer right out the window. It can make for a frustrating session of sharing your creativity.
    Don’t give up! I need my weekly dose of what’s happening on board your ship.

    • Hubby is feeling the same and from other posts, it looks like we’re not alone in our frustrations.
      We won’t give up though, and next week will see us doing things we haven’t done before, so I shall have a new ‘series’ once we get back. 🙂
