Android Users — I Need Your Help

If it ain’t brokePerhaps you read my post yesterday in which I whined about updating my iPhone to the latest operating system (iOS 13). I also updated my iPhone’s WordPress app, which the “Happiness Engineers” at WordPress claimed was “optimized for iOS 13.”

The abridged version of what resulted from these updates is that when I attempt to use the WordPress visual editor within WordPress.com (not the WordPress app for iOS 13) on my iPhone using any web browser, it can only display three or four lines of text before I have to start scrolling to see more text.

This is what I see in my browser for this post using the visual editor.Visual Editor glitchI even downloaded iOS 13.1.1 last night to see if that would fix the problem. But it didn’t.

So, here’s my ask. If you use an Android phone and have the latest, greatest version of the Android OS loaded, I’d like you to try this:

  1. Open up your web browser on your Android phone
  2. Log into wordpress.com
  3. Start to write a new post
  4. Can you type more than three or four lines without having to scroll down?
  5. Let me know in the comments below
  6. Thanks

By the way, the way I’m dealing with the visual editor glitch in my browsers is to write my posts using HTML, where my raw text does show up. Have you ever had to use HTML to compose your posts. It’s not fun.HTML editor

Share Your World — Apples or Oranges

SYW

It’s Monday, and that means it’s time for Melanie’s Share Your World questions. So, here are my answers.

Do you prefer Apple (‘I’ products) or Android for your technology ‘fix’?

I have an iPhone. My wife, son, and daughter each have the Google Pixel 2 XL phone, which is an Android device. I love my iPhone and will likely stick with it, seeing no reason to switch. Of course, I also said that of my BlackBerry device about a decade ago.A02E92B9-B934-46F2-A8E6-25D3FF884464

What’s something on your personal bucket list?

My bucket list has one thing on it: the revival of the American democracy after Trump, one way or another, is no longer president.

What would you name your boat if you had one? The Unsinkable 3? The Please Don’t Sink? Your choice! Also, what would it look like? Do you want a motor yacht, a sailboat, or perhaps a dinghy?

A houseboat named “This, Too, Shall Pass.”

What brought gratitude, a smile or laughter to your life this week?

After the events of this past week, there was not a goddam thing that brought gratitude, a smile, or laughter to my life. Sorry.
