Every time WordPress decides we need a new editor I spend some time wanting to murder things. I’m not sure who exactly was clamoring for being able to start blog posts with drop caps, but what the hell, I’ll check them out. Only everything is “blocks” now, and I seem to have somehow lost the ability to insert an “image” “block” into a “text” “block,” so I don’t really see how this shit helps me any. I mean, hey, drop caps, though.
I’ve had nothing going on for the last couple of days. I spent all day reading today, after finally finishing The Monster Baru Cormorant last night. Which I still will need to reread at some point in the future.
Still can’t figure out how to put a picture into a block of text. I mean, I can set wrap options on the picture, but I can’t move it. Does that make sense? No. No it does not.
I can do a drop cap on every paragraph, though.
(It’s at this point where I realize that the new editor, which is going to “level up my layout,” really doesn’t seem to have an option to do images inline with text, lose all will to live, and switch back to the old editor. Just once, just once, motherfuckers, I’d like you to roll out a new feature that works when you roll it out. I don’t have the patience for incompetent dumbfuckery right now. I just don’t.)
(Also, I want to point out that when I switched back to the “classic” editor, the one that, to me, is still not up to snuff with the editor before it, it got rid of one of those drop caps for no clear reason, but kept the other. Fuuuuuck this.)
