WordPress should join the race too

I often hear people comparing Squarespace and Showit or sometimes Wix to WordPress. I don’t understand how they compare, but at this moment, WordPress does not compete with them.

WordPress Gutenberg editor

However, I’m very optimistic that WordPress can if they want to. With block (Gutenberg) editor, WordPress should go wilder with it.

The so-called Full page editor isn’t going to cut it. It’s just a page editor after all. Provide all the template (or pattern) you want, it’s not what WYSIWYG user looking for. Even with a well-built WYSIWYG editor like Squarespace, Showit or Wix, there is still customization question from the users. So pattern alone doesn’t work.

Gutenberg editor is like a beginner type of WYSIWYG editor, with limited features which are very well thought out, at least it will not mess up the whole layout with a little scales of width.

WordPress Header and Footer selection

The one and only thing WordPress now lacking is the header and footer selection/creation. At least giving a taste of a site builder, then we will see how plugins coming out.

So far, there are very limited good site/page builder plugins. All of them are bloated and required quite some technicality on optimization. So with WordPress fully submerge into site builder, perhaps plugins too will improve.

Shut up already

Why is this cannot open? Why is that cannot open? Why I can’t visit? Why can’t I eat together with my parent? It’s all this kind of questions on the internet and chatting group. People are expecting to go back to normal and every stores and restaurant are open, everyone happily together gathering.

It’s not happening.

Covid

It’s not about what MCO is, or what did the government must do and must not do. It’s about the covid virus. Put your priority right, and point to the right target to talk about.

Even if those stores are legally open, it doesn’t mean you have to sit there and enjoy yourself. It’s not the time yet, you know it, so shut up.

Please burn covid virus into your mind and do the necessary, not to blame the government, the movement control the management just because something is not open just for you.

Empty road

The necessary thing we all need to do is to stay home, go do your grocery quickly (there is a thing call note for you to note what to buy, so don’t scroll around the market) and go home. We all need to do this for a couple of months or year for now.

You do not need MCO or government to tell you what to do anymore with all the information regarding the virus. So stop being a mommy’s boy and shut the fuck up.

How broadband get away with lousy services

I have been having unstable Internet from Maxis home fibre broadband for a month now, since the day CMCO started, the connection is very very unstable. It’s also the time everyone in the house needs the Internet.

Every time a report has been filed, the connect came back. Then technician called, but it’s resolve within second as I did not have the issue on the time technician calls.

Such a procedure just keeps looping, and the issue is always there and I have to stick with such an issue.

Maxis have done their job by calling me, the issue resolved by itself, MCMC cannot do anything, and I will have to stick with such Internet.

This happens to all broadband in Malaysia. They can give you the lousiest service they can as long as they tied you up with their contract. You can’t get to them, even MCMC also can’t get them, this is the grey area.

Instead of keep promising the nation that the government going to speed up the broadband, it would be better the government promise no-contract base when subscribing the service, this way it opens up a more competitive market.

Keep it 3 years maximum

If you’re planning to use WordPress or already using WordPress as your website, please make sure to update it every 3 years at the maximum.

WordPress

WordPress always support backward compatibilities, but there is a limit to where it will support.

If your website has been there for 3 years without any update, your website is not that important. Either use a simple HTML website or just forget about having a website.

Funny how website suddenly becomes some important aspect of one business after social media websites.

Movement control necessity

So the MCO (or CMCO or whatever it is) is back again. Although not as tightly control as before. When this happen one necessity is the Internet.

Literally everything is Internet connected. Work, entertainment, study and purchasing.

This is the speed I got once the movement control started. I need to work so I need Internet, our home entertainment is mostly from Internet, and kid is now having virtual classes. Basically the time we need Internet the most.

I subscribed for 100mbps, this is the speed I get instead. I really wonder how all the statistic done, with Maxis on top nonetheless.
