Considering it was around 2 weeks I was practically gone from WordPress, I shouldn’t have been that surprised there would be alterations to the Reader. Yet here I am still trying to fiddle with the new layout and for goodness sake it just doesn’t agree with me. Scrolling it is now restricted to manual, I can’t check out any post with an exert of the post without being forced to visit the damn site nor have the post pop-up on my screen.
After messing around with it a bit I have found….that I just don’t get who this is for. Is it for mobile? It looks like a pain for mobile users who read on the go. It’s painfully annoying to use on my PC and as such I have been absent from the blogging community as a commentator which bugs me. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’m ever going to get used to it, so I guess I’ll just straight up follow the relevant people.
I’d also like to apologise for the lengthy paragraphs present in many, many of my posts as the creation page for posts puts my paragraphs wider than the actual site or reader, adding on like 3 lines. I thought I was restricting it to 4-5 lines with maybe a bit more on occasion. Nope, in fact I’ve been flooding any potential reader with 7 line paragraphs commonly. Do not worry, I have found the appropriate Preview function and plan to use it to halt such a sin.
What do you think of the changes WordPress has made to your creation or reader experience? What pointers would you give them to make it easier? I personally liked the “classic” Reader and the “classic” layout of user statistics for each day, it was nicer for everyone in my mind and was moronic to change it. Thanks for the read and I’ll see you later.
