Another New WordPress Quirk – September 8, 2020

This one seems to be new as I wasn’t noticing it until today. Seems when I schedule a post, I can change the hour with minimal effort. However, when I click on the minutes, and it’s PM, it automatically reverts to AM. I haven’t checked to see that if it applies to switching AM to PM as it’s early evening when I am scheduling this post. Something to be aware of if you aren’t paying attention when you schedule posts. I had a couple where all I changed was the time.

Shouldn’t have been a big issue this afternoon or early evening, but when I went looking for the scheduled post, it wasn’t in the scheduled section. When I went looking for the post, I hadn’t noticed the PM to AM change initially so the posts showed up as scheduled for the wee hours of the morning. This wasn’t an issue for me before today.

Curious as to how many other “features” they will introduce as they play around with addressing some of the issues. I said features because that’s what some of the more experienced beta testers called bugs when I was beta testing computer games. They were being sarcastic with their sense of humor.

Looks like a new addition to the circled i button, possibly two additions. Before today, I don’t recall seeing Characters or Headings as listed. I may be in error on Headings, but I know Characters is new. It threw me for a leap as I thought it was Words and wondered how my short article was 1,000+ words long. It . wasn’t, only 1,000+ characters long with a fraction of the words. Thankfully, I was able to restore the words I deleted before realizing what I had missed. I did it in blocks so restoring it was easy enough.
