Some very patient people are getting used to seeing lots of questions from me these days.
The big question I have is, "Is it me?"
So far this has not been commented on.
Kindness? wpmudev policy?
An answer or insight does not have to be about me specifically, but I know that I need to understand if the problems I am having are because I am using the system incorrectly or because the system is a little bit unpredictable or buggy.
The things I am doing and asking about are basic operations- starting a new page, resizing a picture.
I have not found a predictable pattern to my behavior or Upfront's behavior in building a page.
Saving things is a good example. When and How.
Often, but not always, when I add a new page- the new page appears but it is all faded out.
There is no "customize" sidebar, the usually annoying "publish" drop down is missing and there is no home button. I hit the back arrow in the browser window and start looping back through upfront- homepage, customize,pages, edit page......
Then as I build the page there are many, many ways to save things- with the "Publish" drop down frequently... interfering(?).
The various saves include: Save, Save Element, Publish Draft, Done, Schedule.
I find it very frustrating and I still cannot perceive if I am constantly doing things "incorrectly" or if that is just how Upfront is.
If I am doing things incorrectly I need to be told- directly- you are doing this the wrong way.
In Upfront you have to xxxxxxx
If I am doing things reasonably I need to be told that to- directly.
What you are doing makes sense but sometimes Upfront does xxxxx
So, again, it does not have to be me specifically, but what is going on with Upfront?
Are user behaviors making things difficult?
Is Upfront especially quirky or buggy?
Many thanks for your thoughts and insights,
