Piglet is having a strop!
Yesterday, I noticed my “subscribe by email” button had disappeared and the words “Sign me up by email” replaced by a rather insignificant blue circle with a white cross. Being a bit of a techie-muppet I immediately thought I had inadvertently twiddled with something and broken it! Unable to discover the cause, I slept on the problem overnight, as you do, and hoped it would rectify itself by this morning.
No such luck. So much for positive thought.
After pondering as to the cause for a further hour and still totally mystified I logged out of my WordPress account and pressed the blue button.
Ha HA, only when you select this button do the words:
“Enter your email address to follow this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.” then appear. it also tells the world the number of subscribers you have to your blog.
Has the world gone “social media” button mad? How many ordinary people would actually know they had to use this button to subscribe by email? Is it just me who objects to this change or should we as bloggers be at least given the choice?
Please WordPress can we at least have the old-fashioned option?
After wasting time trying to resolve a problem I did not create I discovered this post on the word press forum:
OK Rant over!
