If you’ve been using WordPress for a very long time like I have, you’ve no doubt noticed that with the installation of WP 4.7 I think it is on the self-hosted side, the Justify button has been removed from your Admin/Editor. This grinds my gears.
Irritated, I had a lengthy text chat with a WP agent late today. This person stated in so many words that the button isn’t coming back anytime soon as it has something to do with WP self-hosted? The core code is basically the same for both the dot-com side as the self-hosted side.
This shouldn’t bother me so much I suppose but then at my age I don’t appreciate change so much. I view this as a step backward because to Justify my paragraphs to have them appear as blocks of well-aligned text, I now have to keep a small file on my desktop with the HTML code to insert!
I found the person I chatted with a bit cocky too, he/she seemed very smug about this, insisting that Justification is something of the past now which had me ask him/her if this is similar to certain CSS or HTML code being depricated over the last several years? That question wasn’t answered.
Good Lord, has the time come for me after well over ten years of being with WordPress.com to move away to another platform? They do exist, WordPress isn’t the only game in town to use a cliche’….
