Day #4 – haunting a ghost bug; impressions on WordPress

Uncategorized

Ill is this {asci-art}sy word and the way I felt yesterday, predicting myself a 30-40% productivity. I started by outlining the tasks to accomplish and decided to start with recapitulation of the day before  in(to) a little blogpost. The thing that drove my nerves (mad) was any attempt in https://wordpress.com/post/ got stuck on the “Beep beep boop” loading screen…I decided to investigate that mystery to not have to switch Firefox and Chromium back and forth all the time.

Whining on mozilla forums only pointed me to things I already supposed should help, i.e. sniffing around the addons which would be the case.

Therefore I wanted to post their list immediately…which isn’t as trivial as it seemed. You have to install this one more add-on to have your addons listed and yet it’s very premature and the format being plain text. So I have to filter just the active plugins manually. Put this little code( — here it goes as promised) into Sublime’s replace:

(.*(\(Disabled\)|\(Incompatible\)).*)\n

(assure of regEx are checked) and replace all by an empty string. Didn’t you hear yet, you should learn regular expressions, a.k.a. regEx? They are fun and sometimes useful.

Well, it happened to seem the mystery bug disappeared just after throwing Firefox into the Safe mode and coming back. Here was the editor!..just that it did stuck on save/preview this time..:(

To keep with the tradition of  I have to say I expected more solid stability from in the WordPress interface( — looked different from one day to the other) as well as broader capabilities in it’s editor( in Dashboard). Just one example is you have to go from the “Visual” to the “Text” tab to make a piece of code inline( like this). Other, quite a crucial feature I miss is smaller/larger font size. How they dare to cut that out while leaving a hulk of empty space in the formatting toolbar?

Well, now getting into the ADT bootstrapping so to beget some first scamp Android apps…
