There are some recently announced blogathons in which I’d love to participate, but I’m a bit stymied. Here’s why.
You’ll notice that, on the far right column of this blog, I post links to the ‘thons in which I have entered. On WordPress, that used to be easy to do. You’d just click on the top left-hand corner of the blog to bring down the menu; click on “Menus”; click on “Widgets”; and then add the banner and URL of the ‘thon.
But like other webpage sponsors, WordPress recently decided that, since it ain’t broke, they might as well fix the s**t out of it. Now when I click on “Menus,” “Widgets” doesn’t even pop up as an option.
It’s the same for “Comments.” Whenever a reader would leave me a comment about my blog, all I had to do was click on the “Comments” option of the “Menus” section. But again, WordPress has decided to change this in the hope that I will never read another reader comment for as long as I live.
Do any other WordPress users know how to work around these bugaboos? If so, please either leave me a comment in the “Comments” section of this blog entry, or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your help!
