The Monday Peeve 59

Smiles and positive posts are all well and good, but sometimes I need to vent a bit. How about you? That’s what The Monday Peeve is all about, a chance to blow off a little steam at the beginning of the week, so then we can go merrily on our way once again (hah). I’ll pick a topic that’s on my mind, but you can vent about whatever you please, here in comments or on your own blog. Grab the photo, use the TMP tag, link back to me (or not), and Bob’s yer uncle. I do reserve the right to delete any links that offend my delicate sensibilities. So far, none have, but it could happen. I have feelings!

Today’s peeve is about WP itself… more specifically, the app. It has nothing to do with the block editor. 🤣 It’s about missing things on my reader (old issue with a new wrinkle), which has me super stressed out. I’m talking about my own stuff! I follow myself, as you do, and I’ve noticed lately that my images are randomly not appearing in my posts even though they exist. I use an image (sometimes more than one) in every post now, so no post of mine should ever appear with text only. Yet, these “missing” images actually exist on the post; I know this because when I “visit” a post at my main site, the image appears. Why is it missing from the app feed? Sometimes it’s an image I’ve had around a while, such as a Bitmoji, and sometimes it’s a new image I’ve downloaded from someone else’s prompt post. And I’m not talking about that dreaded X in a box you get when an image has been deleted. No. I’m talking about a post appearing as if no image was ever uploaded with it, when it was. 🤯

I like using the app on my phone ~ it’s super convenient for reading posts and saving the prompts I might want to do later. But this missing image issue has me SUPER MEGA ANNOYED! Naturally, I’m not going to bother asking for help from WP because (1) I doubt they will even understand what I mean; and (2) they never help. Plus, sometimes the image appears, so with my luck, they’d look and see one and think I’m just crazy. I may be crazy, but it is a FACT that WP is glitchy and irritating regardless.

Look at this evidence…

The same freaking posts as they appear sans images when I look up my blog on the app!

Happy Halloween week! 🎃 Don’t forget to remember your peeves for next Monday! 👻

  1. That happens to me as well quite often. The other things are that the new editor will randomly decide to immediately post a scheduled post and then put it as if it was posted days ago. The other thing is that WP decides randomly to disappear comments or likes that I have made. Growlllllll. x

  2. I’ve seen this with other post, though not with my own. It is super annoying when people are talking about the photo which you cannot see anywhere!

  4. I’ve noticed that if I have images in a post, but haven’t set a feature image, most of the time it’ll pick an image to show in the Reader feed, but sometimes it won’t show an image at all.

  5. I know what you mean, I do use the app on my phone mostly and its really convinient but the issues with images is annoying.

    My Monday peeve though, is of people asking me what I’m drawing (I like to sketch). I have to keep explaining to people what art is and that it doesn’t need to make sense about anything. Therefore, anyone asking again I’m not wasting my breath I’ll simply shrug and say I don’t know…

  10. My goodness! That’s awful, one goes to the trouble of making their post ‘pretty’ and then WP randomly shoots ’em in the foot! I’ve never noticed that happening, but I do know that WP doesn’t allow certain images any more..I think they need a lesson in how to fix what’s broken and leave the rest alone!

    • I experimented by setting a featured image as Ashley suggested… this will be for my post going out at 11:30 tonight. I’ll try to do another one before that too. It is frustrating!

  11. I mostly use the dot com cuz the app made me too irritated! I’m still getting a “spazzed out” link box when I try to link something. It’s why I keep putting the whole address in my posts… it’s untidy and I hate it, but I’m not gonna bother with the unhappiness peeps either. 🙄🤦🏼‍♀️
    WP has always been glitchy but Dang! It’s gotten worse.

  13. Wow – surprised to read all the negatives about WP. I don’t utilize the app other than to read on occasion thus had no idea of all these problems. Ugh!
