The WordPress App for my iPhone was updated today. You know, that thing that happens when we are not looking. There was a time when an update became available, and we, the owners of the phone, had the privilege and responsibility of saying, “yes, please, or no thanks”. Now it is done for us in those secret places where technological mortals are not welcome. And we have no choice in the matter.
Today’s WordPress Update boasts three topics. But, the one that has me flinging off the planet is titled: Redesign of the Notifications tab. That’s all it says. What does this mean? I do not have, nor can I find a clue, other than all the notifications I had, monitored, and referenced daily are gone. That’s right. Completely gone. In place of all my notifications is a new screen telling me I do not have any notifications yet. I DID A MINUTE AGO YOU _________s (fill in the blank with your blue word of choice)!!
I am issuing a plea to anyone who knows what happened, or how to retrieve my notifications to help me out here. Am I the only one who has experienced this? Can I get my notifications back? Do you have a contact number or email address for the WordPress people who pose as helpers? Or want to know how I like their new update. I would love to tell them precisely what I think.
In an effort to regain my peace of mind, and relocate my happy place while I await some assistance, I am going to go make pudding. Yes. And it will be chocolate pudding; the big gun of comfort food.
