This happened a few weeks back where WordPress changed the way that they sent their notifications to me, making everything more difficult. This seems to be a common theme with WordPress, as they enjoy changing things around and most of the time it ends up being worse. I have no clue why they keep trying to fix things that aren’t broke, but some hot shot programmer must have convinced them that this would be better. I host two different challenges here on WordPress, the ever-popular Song Lyric Sunday and the much more insignificant Thursday Inspiration, but I enjoy doing both of these challenges. The old notifications that I got when anyone created a pingback to my posts, allowed me to click on a link that led me directly to the post of the person who responded. Now it is al F’d up, and I have to go to my original post and scroll down to find their link and then click on that to see their post. I have not complained to the Happiness Engineers as of yet but having to do extra steps really sucks. I am wondering if any of the other bloggers that host challenges are experiencing the same problems that I am.
