Sunset at Home II

Denne solnedgangen reflekterer ikke min sinnsstemning i øyeblikket! Vi har blitt påtvunget den nye ‘Block Editoren’, og selv om det finnes en såkalt ‘bakdør’ til den gamle  ‘Classic Editoren’ dersom man har en ekstra gammel blogg, så glemmer jeg hvor ‘døren’ er mellom hver gang jeg publiserer et nytt bilde! Jeg har alltid brukt ‘Old Classic Editor’ og – den akter jeg fortsatt å bruke inntil jeg må strekke våpen og avslutte blogging. La oss håpe det blir en stund til enda . . . ? Og mens jeg husker det: Dette bildet ble tatt kl 22.20 !
This sunset does not in any way reflect my state of mind at the moment! We have been forced to use the new ‘Block Editor’, and even if there is kind of a ‘back door’ to the Old Classic Editor if your blog is old enough to qualify, I seem to forget how to find this
back-door from time to time when publishing a new picture! I have always been using the ‘Old Classic’ and I intend to go on using it till I eventually must give in and terminate my blogging! Let us hope there will be some time yet . . .
And I’m not happy! This frame, by the way, was shot at 10.20 PM

    Do not smile! I have rejected the New Block Editor a dozen times, but it keeps coming and insists that I try. Like hell, I will!

    Don’t you give up! Your photography is unsurpassed and I thoroughly enjoy it. Easy way to the classic editor – click on “write” which takes you to where you set up your draft/click on the 3 dots – top of the page on the right-hand side/scroll down to the end and you will see the classic editor.

    • Seenorway says:

      Thanks for the help, but at the moment I’m too furious to think straight!
      But I’ll try to remember to look for this ‘write’ – where ever that might be found?!
      There is a saying in the US: If it works, don’t fix it! And I donæt think the young generation of programmers have ever heard it?! Grrrr!

    • Seenorway says:

      I tried your advice, however, activating ‘write’ I was again shunted to block information that the New Block Editor’ is coming, and ‘would I try it’?
      No, thanks! I DO NOT !!!!!!!!!
      If I could send a bomb, I probably soon would!

    What a lovely sunset and beautifully captured too.

    I haven’t tried to upload a post for a couple of weeks but was using the very old ‘classic’ editor also. I don’t know why software technicians/engineers insist on updating when the old software works more easily and just fine for most of us. I’ll check it out later today.

    • Seenorway says:

      It seems, Vicki, that they want to bolster their self-esteem, and prove to the world how smart they are? Completely forgetting that they are educated within the field and that most other people are not! That way they lose most of their users that no solution but to give in, terminate or find some new hobby but blogging! I have been there before! I have seen very promising projects with 50 000 ‘followers’ disappear completely due to active programmers who understood their field well enough but lacked the ability to understand the reactions of the man/woman in the street. For the time being, I’m hanging in there but if the hassle
      continues, I have no other way but to suspend further publishings. And I think I will have company on the way!

      • Vicki says:

        I had the same trouble in my office working life. Too many I.T. staff with too much knowledge and not enough sense to ask the users what they wanted and what problems they’d encountered in the past.

        I’ve just been too busy to contemplate uploading some photos in a post, so have no idea what’s happening.

        Like you, if it is not user-friendly for me, I will quit and go elsewhere.

        • Seenorway says:

          It is NOT user-friendly! And, unfortunately, I think you are worse off than me?
          WP has supplied a backdoor leading into the Old Classic Editor, but I’m told this is only open to owners of blogs originating before 2019? And where to click (to open the door) is not becoming visible before hovering over a certain spot. A spot I never seem to remember
          where is! Obviously, they don’t want us to find it?!

          • Vicki says:

            I just checked by uploading a couple of posts this weekend and the old method is working just fine for me. Not sure about your own blog, but I just go to the ‘dashboard’, then the tools that first come up, and click on ‘WP Admin’ which is the last option on the page (which takes me straight into the old Classic Editor). At the moment, it’s easy to get into the old classic editor for me.

            • Seenorway says:

              I’m not quite sure, but I think they have suspended their try to lead everyone into
              a makeshift blog that should secure a soft transition into the new blog! But after all the ‘noise’ everything works with me as well.
              However, they retain their plans to phase out the Old Classic Editor sometime in the future.
              The old rumors say ‘late 2021’, but asked straight out, everyone is very vague about it!

  4. Thank you for the beautiful sunset.

    Technology moves too fast for me. I had difficulty, and am still learning to use “block.”


    • Seenorway says:

      Well, Cheryl, I’m 83! And so is my head and its brain! I’m tired of constantly being shunted to where I don’t want to go, and it could have been arranged som simple (if they really wanted to) And I have told them in no uncertain terms that if they keep this up, I’ll be gone very shortly! And I have been here since 2012!

  5. utesmile says:

    So far, I have refused to use the new editor and it seems ok. I heard form many it is difficult and they need so much time. I keep plotting on with the old one!

    • Seenorway says:

      So do I! And I have told these ‘Happy Engineers’ in no uncertain terms that every time I’m shunted to a block editor that is supposed to be ‘nearly alike the old classic editor’, my temperature is rising dangerously. One day in the very near future it might explode, and that happens to be the exact same date I’m leaving WP and terminate my blog!
      Is that their real goal? I wonder!
      This could be done very simple:
      Once you have logged in and click on the ‘Admin’; you should be asked to designate your ‘choice of Editor’. And once you have done that, it should permanently end all this crap!

      • utesmile says:

        You are right, I don’t want to be forced to use a different one either. Let’s hope they leave us a choice.

        • Seenorway says:

          They have! Provided your blog was founded earlier than 2019!
          But to find this back door has been made as difficult as possible. Not visible to the eye before you hover in the right spot! A clear sign that they actually don’t want us to find it!
          And – at my age, I seem to forget where to find it just about on every occasion!

          • utesmile says:

            That is great, mine is older. I had the message to change and I just pressed dismiss, so hopefully it does not com up anymore. Thanks Svein.

            • Seenorway says:

              I’m crossing my fingers, but I just published an old picture, and guess what happened:
              I came directly to the Old CLassic Editor! No but’s about it. No shuntig to Block Editor, no message that I ought to try it, no nothing!
              It looked just like my blog had been set up with the Old Classic editor as a ‘default’?
              It really helped to raise my voice a bit! 🙂
