Update: Wordpress Screw-Ups

See the source image

Here’s the updated list of all the things that have gone wrong with WordPress over just the past two weeks.

News links that don’t like to anything.

Reblogging function doesn’t work.

Some readers don’t get their notifications of new posts or comments.

The links to similar or related stories, at the bottom of each post–gone, removed, vanished. Makes it hard to find related stories.

The list of tags and categories on the right-hand side of the page–gone, removed, vanished. Makes it hard to find things.

If I tried to work out these problems with WordPress’ “Happiness Engineers,” I’d be at it until I was literally driven mad. Besides, the last time they fixed something, it only stayed fixed for three or four days.

People keep predicting the folks at WordPress will get their act together and stop subverting and sabotaging their users’ blogs. But I see no sign of that happening.
