WordPress has exhausted me. I just upgraded the same way I did the previous upgrade and now every post and image has strange characters inserted. The whole thing is wrecked. Word press is very, very glitchy. Even to post a simple entry-- there are times it works well and other times for no apparent reason 8 validation errors are tripped. So a post takes 12 minutes to post and 1 hour to fix all the problems. No one should use WordPress unless they are fluent in html. Now that the html code is not even all included in one place it is extremely difficult for me to fix allt he validation errors.
So I was trying to accept the constant validation problems and now this. A simple upgrade and 30+ POSTS ARE WRECKED!
I hate WordPress and I don't understand why anyone would use this. You spend all your time fixing WordPress instead of blogging!
If anyone could take a look and give me a word of advice, I would appreciate it. Let me just say that already know the following:
-I should be a professional coder and know how to do everything "manually" anyway...
(keep in mind that I have expertise in other fields so I am not necessarily an idiot just because I haven't devoted my life to understanding html code)
Also, can someone advise me about another blog site-- a user friendly one. I don't care if it's free-- I will pay-I just need it to work well. I would like to fix my blog for the 2 months I have remaining on account with bluehost/wordpress.
Exhausted with frustration...
