About WordPress Changes and What We Can Do

So many things going on at WP; you can follow this man’s links to the goldfish pages for his rant. I concur.

Underlying Motive

Matt Mullenweg, owner and recently appointed CEO of WordPress, has himself indicated a wish to pursue the mobile market which is made clear in and interview with Forbes click here ! (page 5/6) .  However that interview does not indicate any intention to abandon desk top users.

Add to this, Tiger Global now have at a total of $110 million invested in WP here !.  Tiger Global also have investments in the expanding Indian and South American mobile and e-commerce markets.

This is altogether an entirely legitimate business pursuit but it’s gone wrong.

The Problem

    Thanks, Katie. I am totally confused about what all this means and don’t have the energy right now to tackle it, but I’ll see what can be waded through later. 🙂

    ! WP CEO Matt Mullenweg ! has know made a reply on this subject. It can be found near the end of the comments list (at January 29, 2015 at 17:57) on :-

    You can reply to him if you wish. I don’t think he is quite aware of the deliberate removal of navigation links. So, the more the merrier. 🙂 .

  3. I found another page that annoys me and complained here:
    http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/hate-new-wp-format?replies=1#return

    “Because they will probably shut it down (wow, etsy reruns) this is what I wrote:
    I really hate the way the WP is going and may move all my blogs because that is how much i hate the new format, after years as a WP enthusiast! I don’t think you WANT to hear this, because I notice that when I go to find a forum on this topic you’ve shut down the comments after a WP admin says, “Sorry.” If you left it open you might hear how many others hate it too!

    I think that if you were interested, and sent a letter out to us to find out how much we hate it, you’d be shocked. Then maybe you’d stop screwing with a site that worked so beautifully — really, so many business have backtracked when they made a wrong move. Think the New Coke or when Netflix decided to rename it’s product. . . They began to lose customers and STOPPED THE STUPIDITY.

    I have seven blogs total I will take. . . . Five of which are paying sites.”

Love to hear from you....
