New Tech Impedes My Progress!

Well, WordPress has given itself a huge up-grade – called Gutenberg. And it has met with much controversy, I find. And, yeah, for geeky tech people sometimes new tech can just be a pain like it is for everyone else! Suddenly the theme I had been using no longer works and the only one I could use that kept my pictures and blogroll, etc. was the ugly olive green thing with blue type. Yikes! I can’t edit old posts, or add the “more” to shorten old posts, etc. I now have installed a new theme that shows all my pictures and animations at least, and I’ll have to calendar a bunch of time to customize this new theme, and get my blogroll back, etc. A little research taught me that users are so unhappy with this that they have actually written plug-ins to disable the new interface – and over a million people have downloaded it! See you all around the next tech learning curve corner! I’ll return with some cool plant-based energy makers, and news of the workshops students at Glendale College asked me to create for them.
