I was wondering if at all, is there a way to get the post area back to how it was before, without using an older version of WP? The new wordpress is beautiful, but the simple fact is my half-assed computer can't take it. I just need to get the post area back to how it was before, where I can view the html in it, verses the way it is with the html in effect. I notice that as the page starts to load, it loads that way but by the end it's all.. fancy... haha. Everytime I go to post, my computer slows down drastically and it shows me an unresponsive script popup. I know nothing of that is a problem with WP, but I would really rather try to get it back, because I do really love wordpress. I looked around for an option to turn this off, but I didn't find anything. I'm sorry if I missed over it.
Also, is there a way to get rid of the fading? Like when a new post is page the area that says 'post has been saved' or when you delete a post and so forth.
I'd really appriciate any help with this, and I apoligise if someone else has posted something else like this, but to be honest i wasn't even sure what to search for.
