A note about updates

The new WordPress update is complete trash.

It certainly looks better but it’s no where near as intuitive. (It’s a problem when someone who uses the site every day can’t even find the spellcheck button.)

Luckily, it will allow me (for now) to revert back to the old format.

Here’s the thing, most people wait to update their software not because they’re lazy but for two reasons:

  1. They want to know it works. So, they wait for someone else to test it.
  2. They’re locked in to how it’s been running and don’t want to learn the new way.

The first rule of design is to do no harm. If the user can’t work the device correctly, that is the designers fault, not the user.
