WordPress 3.5 kinda stinks

thumbs-downThe media handling is really bad. It takes more clicks to do anything, which is very frustrating. Uploads frequently fail even on a fact connection.

And it looks like the old native “click to embiggen” functionality is gone or, at least, no longer the default. If we put a 300 pixel version of the image in the site, and you click on it, you go to another page with the 300 pixel resized image. Frustrating again.

But hey, a lot of plug-ins are incompatible, too! They trashed the editor usability, the reader’s functionality, and the whole megillah’s compatibility all at once.

Wish there was a way to roll back to the status quo ante. Because the 3.5 “upgrade” is really rotten.
