I don't like the way 2.5 is going (41 posts)

    Every time I go into my admin section now, I want to commit acts of violence. I mean really, I don't know why anyone complained about blues. The blinding whiteness of it all is what's driving my nutters.

    And I took the advice above to go to "Users" and switch to the "Classic" color scheme, but it still doesn't look like it used to. I don't know if it's the font spacing or what. I was fine with how it was before, really. I do appreciate the other updates though, and I do like that plugins can be done in my admin now.

    I just might try Fluency.

    I agree while at first glance the admin 'looks' simpler it takes far more time and clicks/scrolling to get anything done.

    Also the Widget/Sidebar management does seem a step backwards - and also wont work for me with the Text Widget - as the box is too wide for the display area.

    I do like some of the updates alot, its really only the layout that seems the big problem here.

    It isn't the loss of drag'n'drop in the widget screen that works on my nerves, but the fact that some widget (even standard widgets) are wider than the part of the screen in which to edit them, so I can't edit them (the "remove" button falls off the screen to name one thing). Also for some reason I can no longer make different text widgets. I only add two of the same, of which one can't be edited...

    Hi,
    any one found a plugin to revert BACK to ver 2.3.3, from 2.5. All I want to do is my posting, not mess around trying to post and correcting imported posts from Blogger. Had made great progress using ver 2.3.3, this was all messed up switching to ver 2.5. Perhaps if I had not started with 2.3.2 and upgraded to 2.3.3, it would have been OK.
    am ready to look for alternatives or go back to Blogger.
    Soooo, anyone, a plugin to revert back to normal insanity.

    have you any backup of your old database? what web host are you using? they might automatically back it up for you. if you havent upgraded for too long you might be able to get a copy of your old db -- then it's just copying the 2.3.3 install back.

    otherwise, i dont think a plug-in is going to help. =)

    I'm used to it now. I think it is much more user-friendly! Once 2.6 comes along and fixes several bugs/problems I'll be much more happy.

    Hello All,
    Still staying with the older version of WP.
    Will at another date retry the latest version on my fake localhost setup. Took a lot of doing to restore the original version after the disastrous switchover. Am gun shy now, and do not want a repeat of that event. Did try ver 2.5.1, it still had all the good stuff gone, that made my blogging smooth. So here is what I finally got it all down to.

    Still need to get RSS and subscribe functions to work on the current theme , which was made with Theme Generator.
    Any one with the know how to add in the mentioned functions, I would appreciate the advice.

    don't want to get too off-topic, but Fluency IS rather nice. Thanks for the link.

    Someone needs to develop a plugin to fix the Widgets control page though! Either restore it, or make it better. Don't strip functionality.
