I realize that this has nothing to do with writing, but I need to rant. I have learned WordPress out of necessity, but Gutenberg, which is the new way to add content to the site, befuddles me. Before if I had a layout issue, I would sort though CSS files, figure out what to change and carry on.
Now I change things and Gutenberg chews it up and spits it out as something completely different.
Me: I want a list in a quote block.
ME: Fine, I will do it through HTML.
Gutenberg, converting everything back to original after HTML is written: BANANA!
I now have so many plugins, they must’ve started breeding. For the first time in a long time, I am considering hiring a pro to do an overhaul of the website. Unfortunately, the pro I was considering popped up in a WordPress support group asking people how to do the exact thing I was having trouble with and then was very dense about absorbing the explanation, so that’s out the window.
Argh. I am frustrated.
