FFS.. It was going so well, and now I’m stuck with effin’ Wordpress. It blows an ice berg. At least you’ll get to see in real time my review of just how user-unfriendly it is. For a start I have NO IDEA how to change the size of the text. Nothing here to give ANY INDICATION of how it’s done..stay tuned…in my opinion wordpress is like a 1985 Mazda running on 3 cylinders..you’re welcome. I’m using a template below to post yesterday’s post..I think the template has something to do with global warming.. Oh look I found a list of commands on the right hand side of the editor where I can change the size of the text. It’s not gigantic any more. Let me see if I can add some images… nope…no idea how that’s done. I’m sure it can be done though. It’s just that there’s no help, idea, hint clue or direction in this program that enables me to do that. What I really want to do is make a home page like the last iteration of this web site. I’m not going to persevere with this. It’s horrible. I don’t have time to learn it, and I don’t want to. I’m going to post what I wrote yesterday here and uninstall wordpress. Site could well disappear again but we’ll see. Well I couldn’t uninstall Wordpress, but I did make a home page that looks like something I would use. Do you think I can edit it and make it the default home page? NOOOOOOOOOOO. That’s impossible. This is the most idiotic thing you can imagine. You can create a page here, yet you can’t seem to be able to link them in any way. So now I’ve got a page which looks respectable offline. No way I can make it the default home page, and I’m stuck with this broken-down garbage.. That is now becoming a very long negative review of this stupid software.
I had added a template which had images earlier which allowed me to at least replace them but that has disappeared in one click never to be seen again. Garbage.. It seems that there is a template page called “Home” which this is written on. I don’t want this to be “home” though. I want the one I’ve just created elsewhere to be home. In a sane world I should be able to overwrite it and rename it ‘home’. It’s not apparent anywhere here how or even if, you could do it. It’s a joke. At the top of the page there is a button that says “edit site”. When you click on the button you get this stupid home page. Where is the other page that I made? Where is the option to change ‘home’ where is the option to add new pages? This is one of the most widely used programs in the world? Something is wrong with this pictue.
It’s giving me a fucking migraine. I’ll have to come back to it tomorrow. Nothins’ easy, that’s for sure.
What I wrote yesterday.
Well it seems like we got to a place where things might actually work. I got so caught up in all this web hosting bullshit that I lost my train of thought regarding everything that was happening in the world. It’s a microcosm of what the modern day hellscape that the world is anyway. Now that I think I’ve fixed this, I’ve kind of lost interest in the whole thing. Who cares what I have to say about anything anyway? It’s all narcissistic ego-driven crap. It’s lonesome mournful and drear. That’s what it’s like on this side of the Winter solstice. Everyone feels like shit in North Eastern USA at the moment. The days are getting shorter. It’s getting colder, etc etc. I think I’m gonna work on a new album. I’ve got a lot of songs already. It’s a matter of gathering them all up and putting them into some kind of respectable condition. The album doesn’t materialize overnight. It grows in the background like mold , weeds or a colony of rats, until one day you turn around and there’s a bunch of half formed zombie looking musical items staring at you balefully from a dark corner of the room.
They are all unfinished but starting to demand completion. Fuck these songs, you say. But what else can you do? You have no other skills. You have to deal with this unfinished mess when you’d rather be fixing your truck or doing something, anything that didn’t require that kind of concentration. I don’t care what anyone says, at some point you’re going to hate your job, however fabulous it appears to be from an outsider’s point of view. I’ve just changed where my domain points to. In other words, you should be reading this now. If this is fucked up as well, I give up. I don’t want to spend my whole existence fucking around with this.
It would be nice if there was an option to add a page, but there doesn’t appear to be one. I’m sure it can be done, but it’s not obvious here at all. You’re just stuck here on the one page, going nowhere in your broken down ’85 Mazda.
