WordPress Changed their editor – and it sucks

Welcome to the keyhole. Trying to edit/create a blog post using WordPress just got harder (as if it wasn’t hard enough already!)

When I go to create a page, the first thing you notice is that you have to edit in a keyhole. The new edit page looks like this:

It used to look like this:Screen Shot 2014-08-17 at 08.41.48  (2)

Notice that there is a lot more editing room in the old page.  And if I’m in “Visual” mode, the editing screen gets even bigger!

And that’s not all. I used to have a [Save Draft] option. That’s gone – so when I went looking for it and clicked on something that took me somewhere else, when I cam back I’d lost some of my work. Not happy.

And Preview page doesn’t work (although it DOES force a “save draft”)

So WordPress, so far your new editor scores about 3/10 from me. Mind you, the “Classic Editor” is only worth about 6/10.
