ipad madness!

Thank you Marcia for alerting me to the new WordPress iPad … eh …. look.

Okay, what do you iPad users think?

As far as I know I can switch off the new layout and make it go back to the way it was.

Let me know which you prefer – I’m still playing with it!


Just to clarify, I didn’t make this change, it’s the work of WordPress!


Update: Okay, it sounds like the iPad change isn’t popular, so I’ve taken up the WordPress option of switching it back to the old view. Let me know if you have second thoughts!

    Is that an iPad App? Cool I’ll be getting the new one soon….yay!

      Hi Stylishgurl, it’s not actually an app, it’s how all WordPress sites now show up on iPads when you look at them on browsers – can’t make up my mind yet whether I like the new look or not!

    Can’t find the blog roll, hit stats, or all the comments. Like the look though.

      I mean, I have an iphone, ipod classic, and a Macbook Pro. Might as well complete the Apple madness with an iPad lol.

        I felt very guilty when I bought my iPad last year, Stylishgurl, because I absolutely could not afford it! But I have to say, I love it, it really is a brilliant gadget …. but still, my credit card balance sure looks ugly 😦

    Honestly, it may look cool, but the old set up was easier to browse on the iPad. At least that is my opinion. This new format makes the posts feel very separate from each other rather then in a continuous rolling diary. I find it trickier to maneuver around on, and for ome reason when I now post a comment, if I make a mistake it will not let me touch the screen to move the cursor to fix the error. To make a correction I gave to erase all the way back to the mistake and start typing over again. Ok I just noticed I typed ome instead of some and now I can’t touch the screen to move the cursor to fix it and I certainly do not want to delete all that I just typed! Ok..noticed another mistake……not gave to erase! It should say have to erase! I will give it a chance, but so far I do not like the new set up on the iPad. Anyone else have an opinion?

    Thanks chipsticks, it took me a while to even figure out how to leave a comment and when am typing and make a mistake the screen doesn’t move the cursor like M is implying. Well I miss the old format this layout is something I will have to get used to if you can’t do anything about it.

    I am still making up my mind on how I feel about this new format. When I looked at the site at work (so tired of grading papers) it looked as it always has. However, when I got home and logged on from my Ipad, I was confused; thought i was on the wrong site.

    Ugh, something else to learn! I had to play with it a bit (my tech knowledge is very limited and there are no kids in my home to teach me)to figure out how to manuever. I agree with M’s review.

    I am currently blogging from my laptop. Easy and breezy. Will play with the Ipad when I am more alert (almost bed time).

    Absolutely I didn’t believe in that change chipsticks, not now, not forever. Thanks again you have no idea how messed up my whole evening has been not knowing what happened and every time I swipe the page the first thing I see is Donald trumps head and hair, then next was Andrew breitwhatever his name is on the screen. So my brother suggested if a rightwing hacker hacked into my iPad. It’s been he’ll on earth girl. No change for mee.

    Oh thank you chopsticks for giving us back the old version! Phew, we can sleep easy tonight! This all probably sounds pretty silly to all the non-IPad users. I think that new version made it look similar to the huffington post IPad app and really now, you certainly don’t want to look anything like the huffington post! =)

    Is this the I-pad club meeting? This is one time when I have to admit the discussion here is ‘all Greek to me’! I’ll just crawl back out the door and return when “yu’all” are speaking English. πŸ˜‰

    I finally gave up and ordered my iPad 2 on line last night. I wanted to get one right away and waited for the new one but no one had any in stock. Now my birthday gift will be late. I want to take my MacPro in for service and a new battery but I will wait until my ipad comes.

    Does anyone have the camera with the ipad 2, I want to do interviews with some of my family members I found on Ancestry.com using the camera. How is the quality and does it record sound.

    Chipsticks, Saw your update and NO I will not have any second thoughts. That was torturous experience for the last few hours! What a complete relief to be back to normal! I love to try new foods, to go new places but honestly let’s just leave great as it is! There is no need to mess with perfection! πŸ˜‰

    I used to like visiting The Mudflats until they changed to something that looked like that. I didn’t like it all. It felt like the continuity of the site was disorganized. I suppose it’s supposed to look like a newspaper, but I prefer the look you’ve been using.

    Whew! Just checked my IPad;relieved and happy to see that the original blog format is back. I will not change my mind. That new format was a change that I did not believe in.

    Good night everyone and thanks Chipsticks/Chopsticks for the very lovely guided tour with the Obamas around South America.
