Technical Difficulties

Today, I hopped in front of Alexa, fired up Chrome, and logged into WordPress. Since I’ve been having some difficulty putting together my Weekly Reader posts–that’s why they’ve been on hiatus for now–on my phone, I thought I would give it a try on my laptop.

‘Try’ being the operative word here. Because I discovered I couldn’t.

It appears that our PC version of Chrome is out of date and doesn’t seem to support the new WordPress editor. Trying to make a new post just results in a blank screen. The page loads, but there’s nothing. I quite literally can’t start typing or insert a picture or, well, anything.

I had been simply copying and pasting most of the basic templates for the Weekly Reader and Seven Quick Takes into some new posts, but since the Classic Editor has been discontinued, I can’t do that anymore. I just end up with a “Block Not Supported” message and a blank space. It’s frustrating.

So yeah, I’m going to have to keep those posts on hiatus until I can figure everything out. It’s not permanent but it is ongoing. Wish we luck on this, because I’m going to need it.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
