WordPress tutor needed! Please!

I am smarter than the average bear, but all my life, I’ve had trouble following directions. This is because I am not really human but a visitor to this planet, so my common sense is immensely uncommon.

A couple of years ago, the idiot AI at Facebook decided that one or more of my posts “violate community standards.” No post of mine ever has, but I am one of many thousands thus tried, judged and convicted. There is no way of appealing, so it’s a life sentence. I’ve thought of a solution: I am trying to start a new blog with a new URL that can be posted even on Facebook.

Only… the way of editing and running my current blog is simply no longer available. Now, all of WordPress uses blocks, and they do my block in.

I have now received helpful links from four separate respondents to help on the WordPress forum — but blessed if I can make sense of the instructions on those pages. For example, the directions state, “Click on the X link here.” I look, and there is no X link to click. Sigh.

So, if any of my lovely friends have expertise in using the current WordPress system, PLEASE mentor me!

    I can try and give you some help since I, too, have been working on finding out how to deal with WPs new (and rather obtuse) system. And while I haven’t become an expert, I am managing to make things work.

      Thank you Tricia.
      Basically, life is too short and there are too many issues in the world to focus on, so I have given up trying to use my new WordPress domain. Just sticking with this one, and if Facebook bans it, I ban Facebook as far as I can.

    I think the Gutenberg WP is awful. It takes me double the time to input the text and post. And often the WP instructions don’t work. Like you said, you might not have what they say to click on. It’s a pain. Hope you find help.
