Stirling Point, Bluff I’m complaining loud and clear that I hate the new colour scheme that WordPress has just imposed. Feeling irritated and seeking some solace in the sea. New Zealand.

I have been away from my computer for a week and didn’t see any announcement about the color changes. Today as I started catching up with posts I thought there was something amiss with my computer.

I’ll have a look at this, thanks for sharing. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I hate that “ghastly” pink too! But I love the rocky beach photo. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Glad you love the rocky beach photo Candice! The good news is that the orange is partially re-implemented now in the Classic Blue interface i.e. the current stats bar and Publish button. Unfortunately it hasn’t been propagated through to when I hit the Like button which still goes to a dark blue solid star. I’ve gold WP that I’m glad some orange is back but that when I “Like” a post the star needs to go Orange. A darker blue isn’t good enough! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I agree with you on that!

LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Mmm, see what you mean about the colours – the ‘like’ star just going a deeper blue is really confusing! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Exactly, who in their right mind would do that? I’ve complained loudly via the comments on their post about it. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply One additional thought, Liz. Here is the link that WordPress published, to customize your dashboard. You might have already tried, and if so, please ignore it. Otherwise, it might help you get the colors your want. https://en.blog.wordpress.com/2019/01/08/customize-your-wordpress-com-dashboard/ LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks for thinking of me Tanja. Unfortunately it doesn’t offer the option to revert to how it was before. (By the way, I’ve left plenty of grumpy comments on that post for WP to read). LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Good, maybe someone will take pity on you. 😊 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply This is a beautiful, serene scene, Liz. I hope it has had an effect on your psyche. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I’ll never understand why they don’t just leave well enough alone. I thought something was wrong with my phone when I first noticed it. Somebody gets paid to come up with that?!? 😏 LikeLiked by 2 people Reply I know. Its unbelievable. The sooner they give an option to revert, the better I’ll be pleased. I loathe that pink colour. Property management company we used to rent from used it for everything, even the A4 paper form we had to fill out for quarterly inspection! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yikes. That’s a bold color, that’s for sure. 😃 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I gotta laugh but honestly, I find that colour quite nauseating now 😉 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Nice picture! Rocky beaches are second only to sandy beaches 😛 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply They have their own special charm (I do like both!) Thanks for the visit 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply WordPress has asked me if I want to change my interface several times, I skipped it. Too old for change 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply This was imposed with no choice Ted and there is no facility to revert. Most of what was an orange-brown colour (like the notification dot and the “current” stats bar) is now a ghastly pink colour. When I hit “Like” it just goes a darker blue instead of orange. Why can’t they just leave things alone? LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
