Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts. This week Frank wants to know…
Aside from getting rid of the Gutenberg Block Editor, since it’s fairly clear that it isn’t going anywhere, what three changes would you like to see WordPress.com make? Please explain.
First, I am pro-choice, so when it comes to editors in WordPress, I would like WordPress to offer bloggers a choice. Allow users who have embraced the block editor to use it, but also allow those of us who prefer the classic editor to continue, unimpeded, to use that editor. It should be as simple as putting a toggle switch that sets one or the other as the default editor on WordPress.com.
Second, add a preview function when posting comments. How many times have you posted a comment and then read it only to find typos or misspellings. Why not allow us to preview our comments and edit them before they’re actually posted? Good idea, huh?
Third, fix the reblog functionality. When I am in the WordPress reader on my iPhone and visit a blogger’s post, I always see a reblog button. But if I wish to reblog that blogger’s post and click (or tap) the reblog button, nothing happens. It’s virtually useless (at least on my iPhone. So fix the damn reblog button so that it does what it’s intended to do.
Okay, those are my three changes I’d like to see WordPress make. Are you with me?
