The software folks at WordPress, which provides the backend template for ArtsJournal, have updated the procedure for posting AJ blogs. The update is meant to simplify the process with widgets so that idiots can use it with blindfolds on. Unfortunately, my tireless staff finds the new procedure a helluva lot less helpful than supposed and has dubbed it “widjits for idjits.”
The new procedure is workable for posting vanilla layouts like the one you are reading now. But it’s a nightmare of trial and error to post a layout like this one, or this one, or this one, or this one (to say nothing of the added bells & whistles that go with them). So for now, while we try to climb the idjit learning curve, it’s straight vanilla for us until we get the hang of it or hang ourselves first.
