Looks like WordPress have done it again. More changes, with no perceptible gain. There is clearly no point bringing it up with WordPress, as it is apparent from this topic that they take no notice of what customers think.
Yet another style over substance change. The editor took a full 45 seconds to load, just to post this. Anyone in a busy environment simply has enough to be doing to be waiting for sub-standard code to load. The visible stats indicator has disappeared from the menu bar. The indicator was a useful widget to allow folk to see in real-time how a blog is performing. Now, because the new stats page is so bad, I have to load the old style stats page just to see whether I have had any visitors.
Bad show WordPress. You’re really not getting this whole customer focus malarkey.
