complaint about wordpress.org (5 posts)

    Three weeks into my wordpress experience, I'm finding the product itself to be particularly good and the wordpress.org website to be particularly bad. It really is the least reliable website I've ever used on a regular basis. Many times I'm getting file not found, or very slow downloads.
    Time to change hosts? Apologies if a change is already in the works...
    Meanwhile, I'll try a different browser, but it seems like a hosting issue and not a browser-compatibility issue.
    I'm using IE 6.

    Time to upgrade to Firefox :)

    Time to stop talking about WordPress and get on-topic by discussing how evil IE and tables are. You'll learn.

    really? I guess I'll have to try it, but I just don't see how this could be a browser issue. But I'll try it anyways!

    emsdc: There has been a little bit of skirmish lately about web standards issues on this forum. See, WP and this site and much of its active user community are strongly on the web-standarts-supporting side of this argument.
    As for your criticism: If you get a "page not found", by all means point out the precise error. I agree with you that the available documentation is not yet in a very user-friendly format. Even as a relatively new WP user, I'm thinking about how I could get involved in that.
    WP, bear in mind, while a remarkably capable program already (ie, it's by no means unfinished), has taken an incredibly rapid development in the last few months. See, for example the numbers cited here by one of its developers.
    If you're unhappy with a commercial program's documentation, in most cases you can only a) swear, b) pay for tech support, c) hope to find some more or less sparse information on the web. In the case of WP, you can also get involved. So don't be a stranger.
