Having been thoroughly put off blogging because v2.8 didn't allow me to change dates are use just about any option on the right side of my editing pages, I was thrilled to update to 2.8.1 - hoping this ridiculous problem had been fixed! But no, it hasn't. I still have to turn off all my plugins to make any changes to my blog. When oh when are the people who designed this program actually going to check that these options all work WITHOUT having to turn off the blasted plugins every time (as it did prior to v2.7)? And yes, I have upgraded all my plugins to no avail - I still find I need to turn most of them off to be able to edit my blog! I am going off WordPress at the moment. It was so easy to use but now its beginning to suck. Taunting us with options we can't use but used to be able to use.
