I have been using WordPress.com, the hosting service of this blog, for well over a decade now. For the last few years, they have been trying to force new editors on their users. I managed to avoid switching last time and kept the simpler editor I prefer.
It seems they are pushing harder with their latest version this time, though. My favorite, “Classic Editor,” has been “deprecated” — which is the kiss of death in software. The new “Block Editor” is horrible and unnecessary, especially for a simple blog like this one. I am not sure what I will do when it is the only option — likely explore moving off of WordPress.com all together.
As of the last couple of weeks, to make a new post in Classic Editor now requires the following steps:
1.) Create the new post, which can only be done in the new Block Editor.
2.) Save it, but with no content.
3.) Exit the blank post.
4.) Open the blank post in Classic Editor.
5.) Write away.
I complain about these “First World problems” in a post here on Beloved Walks only to raise a point.
Software changes. People change. Health changes. Situations change. Jobs change. Finances change. Feelings change. Relationships change. Minds change. Presidents change. Economies change.
One of the many wonderful aspects about Jesus, though, is that He never changes. We don’t have to worry about being forced to install a buggy “Jesus 2.0” that wipes out the already perfect Jesus for the sake of “improvements” and “upgrades.”
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”
Yes, He is, and what a blessing!
