Is it safe to assume that I am not the only one that HATES the new WordPress reader?
At the risk of peeving off some important folks, I have to speak my mind. I consider myself a writer, whether I am skilled or an amateur. After careful consideration, I chose WordPress out of many other similar sites as my canvass to create and a haven to read the most amazing material.
I love WordPress …or at least I did. Clicking on a post only to be taken to a snippet is extremely frustrating. It is insulting to have a shrunken version of your post that requires another click on “Original view” just to get to the actual blog. This will also have an effect on views (if this matters to you). The missing wordcount means that as a reader you have no idea how long the post is. So many changes that seem to have no benefit except cause to be annoying.
As loyal WordPress readers and writers, we can sheepishly follow the flock or we can voice our concerns as many others have on the forums page.
Don’t let a few people ruin a good thing when thousands of us can stand up, be counted and be heard!
