I've been using WordPress for about a week now. What the [redacted] is so trendy about it? I used to modify Blogger (Blogspot) templates with such ease. NEVER ONCE did I encounter the types of problems I'm encountering with WordPress.
Here are some of the issues I've yet to resolve with WordPress.
1.) The [moderated] footer links provided by ego-driven theme authors which are impossible to remove. If anyone wants to tell me how to properly remove these stupid credits WITHOUT screwing up my blog, then by all means, SHARE!
2.) Slideshows on particular themes. No functionality. Impossible to modify the overlay or to remove the post excerpt. Again, if someone wants to help me solve this problem, BE MY GUEST.
3.) Why the [redacted] does one need a plugin just to have Facebook pick up your WordPress blog's images as thumbnails? Are the folks behind WordPress THAT incompetent?
4.) Adding photos into your post- static and boring. With Blogger, you can quickly add photos and DRAG and DROP them where you want in your body text. With WordPress, NO.
5.) MOST OF ALL-- and this is extremely important-- where the [redacted] does one enter a description for their site that Google will display when folks run a search? Don't give me this "tagline" [moronic expletive deleted]. I went ahead and made a simple tagline for my site. Then I googled it. Know what came up? (1) My site name. (2) The site tagline. (3) THE [moderated] BACKLINKS AND CREDITS OF THE THEME AUTHOR.
There's a bunch of other issues I haven't addressed. But I'm [moderated]. If anyone wants to help me out with the above issues, please do so.
*I'm using the "Mobileweek" template, by the way.
So what's so trendy about this "powerful" platform? "Code is poetry" my [moderated]!
