The new WordPress editor

My God.

You’ve changed something that didn’t need to be changed. Once again.

Let’s see: You’ve moved post settings to the right. I’ve been on WP for almost a year and the lefty leftness of the post settings is something burned into my mind. Now you’ve moved it to the right, which is nigh-on blasphemy. My left-in-all-respects brain cannot handle this!

Now we’ve also got tons and tons of white space around the editor. It looks as ugly and unprofessional as the post settings looks plain. If you really power 27% of the internet as you claim, you could go for a much sleeker look rather than lock up a bunch of GCSE IT pupils for an hour with only the web layout option on Word. On a computer running Vista.

What are you going to do next? Change the logo to a modernist W farted out in roughly two seconds by an overpaid design consultant in the city? That’s probably what you’ll do. I’m surprised you haven’t had any angry letters from a certain German automobile manufacturer yet.

For the last time: If it’s not broke- don’t bother fixing it!

EDIT: Interestingly, the “WordPress” in the title autocorrected to the official CamelCase version. I have no use for CamelCase. Why force it on random bloggers?

    I don’t bother with the WordPress editor. I usually write in Notepad++ or in GoogleDocs with the WordPress plug-in (lets you save drafts directly to WP). I’ve found through experience that the WP editor is glitchy and in my case, will often repeat entire paragraphs when publishing.
