Is Classic editor back?


Just writing this to test the site. I see no place for categories or tags. Oh Well!

I have reached the regrettable realization that I may have squandered my life. I did a quick count recently and figured that I have visited about 66 countries, and lived for more than 3 years in 3 of them. During this time I completed 14 corporate moves (relocations) and have changed my address more than 23 times. I should have settled on a profession that would have kept me in one place with no packing and unpacking. When I think of the time I have spent bundling my life into and out of boxes. Ah well, it's all water under the bridge. But I am grateful for the experience. At the end of the day I will be able to say with a certain authority, "been there, done that". A note about this site’s Header Image The Header image for this site is of the Smith Avenue High Bridge. The bridge was built in 1889 and carries Minnesota State Highway 149 across its span of 2770 feet, 160 feet above the mighty Mississippi River. The picture was taken from the river looking to the north-east and downtown Saint Paul. The bridge is about 1040 miles from New Orleans. One of the reasons I like this view is that I come from a city which has a spectacular bridge. It’s the Clifton Suspension Bridge http://www.ikbrunel.org.uk/clifton-suspension-bridge which spans the Avon Gorge and the River Avon in Bristol, U.K. It’s about 1350 feet long and stands 245 feet above the river below. Sadly it has claimed the lives of more than 400 people who have committed suicide by jumping from the bridge. As a side note, not all attempts were successful. two small girls thrown off the bridge by their deranged father survived the fall when they were fished from the river by the crew of a passing pilot boat. The bridge was opened in 1864 and was designed by the 24 year old architect, Isambard Kingdom brunel. It took 35 years to complete.

    • can’t even find the admin icon. Maybe I’ve got a wrong version of WP


      • They have now defaulted to the admin setting for all publishing (minus a bit of functionality). When you start a new post, you should see a white cross in a blue box. Click on that before typing and you should see Classic come up as a menu choice. Click classic and then start typing under the classic bar. It takes a little getting used to and is a pain in the backside.

  3. I haven’t written anything since Christmas and it was a shock to find the makeover. Somehow I wrote a Haiku in the blank space before me. It was printed on a pale blue background of my usual Cronechronicler blog. I messed around and got my dark blue color back, Never did find categories and tags. Never found Administrator. Enough for one day. I guess I’m not through writing yet. Thanks for calling my attention to the drastic change, Nigel. Keep on hunting and I bet you will discover some way to make it work for you.

  4. Take heart, Nigel. It seems from the few comments my post got that most bloggers are upset.
