Tuesday Rant XVII

by pieterh on 16 Nov 2009 20:22


Technically, at least in this part of the globe, it's still Monday. However, since tomorrow I find myself on a trip to London, it's time for the Tuesday Rant, which is that section of the blog where you tell us all the stuff you are unhappy about with Wikidot. To misquote the sages of olden times, Then, shalt thou wait until Tuesday, not later, no earlier. Tuesday shalt be the day thou shalt rant, and the day of the ranting shalt be Tuesday. Thursday thou shalt not rant, nor either ranteth thou Monday, excepting very late in the evening, perhaps around 10pm, and then only if Pieter has launched the blog post early. Friday is right out.

Today my rant is simple and direct. I hate that Wikidot has multiple editor interfaces and it gets me every single ranting time. Ctrl+S? No, sorry, bzzzzt! Find mouse, move pointer to Save, click button. Aaagh!

There are many things to improve in Wikidot but right now, perhaps because it's almost Tuesday, the one that annoys me the most is that I can't use Ctrl+S systematically when I make a comment, add a tag, change the parent page, edit a page, write a personal message, or modify a custom stylesheet.
