Update 9:30 a.m. CT Saturday 16 August 2014
WordPress just added “Welcome to an easier way to create on WordPress.com! Missing the old editor? No worries, just switch to classic mode.” with “classic mode” as the link to do that. It now appears after the “beep-beep-boop” nonsense. Each month, WordPress switches me to the “beep-beep-boop” system without my approval or request. Then I have to click on “Switch to Classic Editor” to fix it. Meantime, WordPress continues to make other irritating and unnecessary changes as “improvements” to fix things that are not broke, instead of fixing things the do need to be improved.
There is also the work-around I found…

Regarding the newest design change at WordPress – the “BEEP-BEEP-BOOP” nonsense.
I found a work-around!!!
For a New Post:
1. Main “Dashboard” – from WordPress Site TITLE drop-down (open the main Dashboard) >
2. “Posts” >
3. “Add New” (right under “All Posts”) = old version!!!
[NOT “New” > “Post” from title drop-down. And all other options get the B-B-B nonsense.]
To do an Edit:
1. Main “Dashboard” – from title drop-down (open the main Dashboard) >
2. “Posts” >
3. “All Posts” >
4. Find the post you want to edit >
5. Select “Edit” under post title. That will avoid the B-B-B nonsense.
Hopefully this small victory is not an oversight yet to be changed to more B-B-B nonsense.
The previous recent change “improvement” a month ago eliminated the vertical scrollbar of the normal text box, and I still don’t see any logic for why it was removed. Maybe the adults at WordPress have gone on vacation and left children or trained monkeys in charge this summer 2014. Or…
Breaking News – CNN reporting: WordPress goes from SNAFU to FUBAR as ownership, management, and design has been taken over by brain-eating body-snatching shape-shifting drooling zombie vampire aliens from outer space! “Beep-beep-boop” is their alien language!
