WordPress Version 3.9 Incompatible With Some Themes and Plug-Ins

As far as I am concerned, the code writers at WordPress should not issue updates to their software unless and until they know it is compatible with all known plug-ins and themes. Now, I know that will be impossible to do and in which case the whole WordPress model/system is a failure.

You cannot issue updates and upgrades to WordPress such as version 3.9 without knowing that it works with other third-party software which is part of the WordPress system. Plug-ins are written by all kinds of people and are part of the WordPress system of building a website. The underlying software is written by the WordPress code writers but they seem to think that they can ignore the plug-ins which are used by every single person who has a WordPress website.

The recent 3.9 WordPress upgrade has cause endless problems most particularly with the most important part of a WordPress blog, which is the visual editor. The visual editor is a bit like a word processor and it is not working properly because of this upgrade.

The upgrade was meant to improve image and video handling. As far as I'm concerned it does not. It doesn't work at all and I'm extremely disappointed in WordPress.

The more I read about this sort of thing, the more I realise that the WordPress model, the whole system upon which it is built is a bit of a failure because plug-ins are often incompatible with the WordPress coding. And so are the themes.

It is highly irritating to deal with these bugs. It is time wasting and often extremely hard to resolve these problems. It's a bloody failure, as I said, and something has to done about it because I'm tired of being lectured to by some geek who seems to be blaming the plug-in and the theme code writers rather than themselves!

Note to cat lovers: Sorry but I had to get this off my chest.

Cat Ear Mites

Brown gunge. Yes, I know this is a ferret! It does show the build up of dark brown to black ear wax caused by the presence of the cat ear mites in the outer ear canal. This parasite is not restricted to the domestic cat, which makes this photo valid and a useful illustration (I was unable to find a suitable photo of a cat with the condition). Photo Stacy Lynn Baum under a creative commons license. Ear mites (minute crab like creatures) are one of the causes of inflammation of the outer ear canal (scientific term for this inflammation is Otitis externa ). The outer ear canal is the tube that runs from outside to the ear drum (the pathway for the reception of sound), which can be seen when looking at the ear. Otitis externa affects humans and often swimmers as it is called "swimmer's ear" in humans. This YouTube video show ear mites under a microscope. They are not actually in the ear in this video. There are many possible causes of Otitis externa in c

Feline Mange

I'll write about three types of feline mange (a) feline scabies or head mange (b) demodectic mange and (c) sarcoptic mange. The source material is from Cat Owner's Home Veterinary Handbook - the best on the market . Generalised feline mange? Puerto Rico - Photo by Gotham City Lost And Found Feline Scabies - head mange Head mange or feline scabies, is a fairly rare condition in cats, which is caused by the Notoedres mite (head mite) that only reproduces on cats. The female mites burrow a few millimeters (that is a lot) into the skin around the head, and neck to lay eggs, which hatch and lay their own eggs. Their presence and activities causes intense itching that in turn causes the cat to scratch. The scratching will obviously be noticed and it will cause the skin to become red, scratched and worse infected. Symptoms: hair loss and scabs, thick wrinkled skin and grey/yellow crusts form plus the symptoms of scratching. Feline mange (head mange) is contagious and tr

Cat Anatomy

Cat Anatomy - Photo by Curious Expeditions . The picture above was taken at Wax Anatomical Models at La Specola in Florence, Italy. The photograph is published under a creative commons license kindly granted by the photographer. I am sorry if it is a bit gruesome. It is pretty well all I could find as an illustration that was licensed for publication. Cat Anatomy is a very wide ranging subject. The anatomy of a cat is very similar to human anatomy. If you were writing a biology book for students of biology you would go through every part of the a cat's anatomy in some detail. It would be similar to writing a book about the human anatomy. It would be a thick book and pretty boring for your average internet surfer. So, how do you limit such a big subject and make this post meaningful? The answer I think lies in doing two things: Having a quick general look at cat anatomy - an overview and; Focusing on the areas of cat anatomy that are particular to the cat and of parti
