Well, well, well… I see that WordPress ditched the “Pro” Plan. What an absolute clusterfuck that was. I unloaded in July over their mess (last blog post). As an “I’m sorry” gesture, I was given a $120.00 credit towards a Business Plan. Ok. I’ll bite. The Biz Plan comes with a lot of features and I did get used to the “Classic Editor” plug-in and the “I-Frame” plug-in. I also get access to a tip jar/buy me a coffee payment feature. It would be nice to be appreciated for my work. Just sayin’…

Anyway, I am back but, I may be busy trying to clean up many of my previous posts that the “Pro Plan From Hell” fucked up royally. Uploaded videos may need to be re-uploaded…or restored. I have accounts with Rumble & YouTube so, embedding will work. The BIG question at this point is, have the Happiness Engineers straightened out the browser Reader & the app Reader so that everything renders properly.

We shall see… ~Vic

    No change is ever perfect. SOME things will need to be fixed.

      Thank you, dear. It is no fun blogging when nothing works right.

    Glad to see you are back!! I’ve been less than impressed with a lot of the changes in WP – used to run my own installation off of GoDaddy, but eventually gave that up when an update to Firefox deemed my site a risk because I didn’t have an official trust cert. Opted against the $500 charge for that and went to WordPress hosting – not liking the lack of control, but oh, well. Anyway, glad things are straightening out for you, but sorry for the other news you shared.

      I will be proceeding with great trepidation.

      I have heard of some issues between WP & Firefox. I blog with Brave and there have been odd issues between them.

      $500 for trust, huh? Mozilla “used” to be a good company, just like Automattic. Foundations take over shit falls apart.

      Yeah…the other news. I am still working with my uncle to clean up the mess. Forty years worth of nicotine, dust, oil furnace soot & dog hair…all over everything. Nothing but trash. You should see his nasty bathroom. And, it wasn’t like he was handicapped. He was just lazy. He was cruel to me and the only tears I cried were of relief & release of anger.

        At this point I am at lesser of evils – I used to be very close to Mozilla in a former life and they managed to piss me off during their “we’ll tell you what is and is not fake news” BS, but still pales to the “Do no evil” company and their outright meddling.. You definitely have a bad situation with the other, hopefully you can get that taken care of, bury those bad memories for good.and focus on better times, Hang in there.

          Yeah. NO one is gonna tell me how to think.

          I do a lot of “giveaways.” Write my frustrations, try not to read them back…then, burn them. If something still bothers me, I write some more and burn some more. Very effective…

          Thanks, sweetie! 💕

      Trodding carefully. I was given a big credit. “Pro Plan” disappeared for a reason. I had been thinking of going Biz, anyway. “Pro” just showed up, first. I’m glad they ditched it.

      Now, I will have to go about repairing my site. So many videos are trashed…

          It is what it is. WP has been going down hill, lately. Hopefully, it won’t get any worse.
