Fixing Something That Really Wasn't Broken Has Caused Nightmares (3 posts)

    Ever since I upgraded to this 3.5 and 3.5.1 version of WordPress, it has been as USELESS as two boobs on a bull. You guys have created the ultimate nightmare for users.

    Nothing works right and when you place a fix, something else doesn't work.

    Whenever I update a new edit and I look into the html visual editor - the update screws with the various span, br, etc. tags. They end up reading backwards or they disappear completely!

    What is it that they say? Oh yeah - test, test, test before putting it out there for everyone. I really don't think that aspect was achieved.

    I have to ask - why try to fix something that wasn't broken to begin with?!

    3.4.2 worked just fine. Nice and smooth. Now, since the new versions have come out, it works like crap. Really puts a damper on your reputation for being such great a platform.

    Hope you guys get the competence together soon. Time is money and you're messing with peoples livelihoods.

    Highly frustrated and pissed off...

    The responsibility isn't on WordPress (the core application) to comply with themes and plugins. Perhaps your anger should be redirected to them instead.

    What is it that they say?

    I think it's, "Beggars can't be choosers".

    You shouldn't be switching editing tabs. Pick an editing tab and stick to it for the life of that given Post or Page. You will find exactly the same warning posted all across these forums, so this sounds more like user error than an issue within WordPress.

    Oh yeah - test, test, test before putting it out there for everyone.

    Did you contribute to the 5 months of beta testing that was carried out on WordPress 3.5. Or the subsequent 1.5 months of testing on 3.5.1?

    Time is money

    And WordPress is free. There's even these free support forums to assist you. Yet I see that you didn't bother registering here until you posted just 35 minutes ago. So let's see... you had some problems that were specific to your site, you could have asked for (free) help but didn't and now you blame WordPress? Again, this appears to be more of a user issue than anything else.

    No one is forcing you to use WordPress. If you no longer find it is suitable for your needs, then you could always try another content management system. But if you do, and you hit problems again, do remember to ask for help before writing yet another CMS off. After all, the solution to your difficulties could actually be something very, very, simple.
