WYSIWYG-i-woo

Someone asked me the other day if blogging on WordPress is done by simply typing like you would in (say) Word, or if you need to engage with HTML coding.

HTML coding and I have no relationship at all: we are certainly not engaged …

There’s a buffer between the user and the coding. So you just type what you want. I usually type my reviews into Word and copy them across.

If you’re using WordPress’s new basic format you can engage with what they now call ‘blocks’. I have, actually, no idea what they mean by that, nor what it provides that I might conceivably need, nor how it gets put on the page. There’s a sort of magical shuffle happens when I upload what I want to share and there it is, lying elegantly on the page.

You can use some HTML. If you want to. For example to make an ‘anchor’ or other link. But it is (thanks be) not obligatory.

Which is all to say, WYSI pretty much WYG.

Hi there, I hope you find something to interest you here. In December 2017 I published my fourth book – ‘Wonders will never cease’. It’s a satirical campus novel set in the fictional Ariel University in 1985. If you enjoyed Tom Sharpe’s Porterhouse novels, Willy Russell’s ‘Educating Rita’, David Lodge’s campus novels or Malcolm Bradbury’s ‘The History Man’ back in the day, you may enjoy revisiting the ivory towers of 1980s’ academe thirty years on. See what you think. “It is December, 1985. The year is winding gently towards its close until Fergus Girvan, a Classicist at Ariel University, finds his research has been stolen by the man who is also seeking to steal his daughter. But which man is, actually, the more unscrupulous of the two? And is there hope for either of them?” In the autumn of 2015 I published a volume of short fiction: 'Ice Cold Passion and other stories'. I am also the author of novella 'Little Mouse', a shortish piece of historical fiction which I published in 2014 and, a sequel to it, 'Is death really necessary?', my eco thriller set in the near future and which, confusingly, I published in 2009. All the books are available from all good online bookshops and FeedARead on paper, and as e-books on Kindle. On a semi-regular basis, and about a month after the event, I post here reviews which I do for Big Al & Pals, the premier reviewer of indie books, based in the States. My interests tend to thrillers, SF, magic realism and other quirky stuff. On this blog are also posted the reviews I did for Leighton Buzzard Music Club over some five years up to the end of 2015. LBMC present annual seasons of eight monthly chamber music concerts at the Library Theatre in Leighton Buzzard, Bucks. They select young musicians just beginning to make their name - and the concerts are usually magnificent. I was very proud to be associated with them. I review other music, books, theatre and exhibitions which I've particularly enjoyed.

  1. I was a bit puzzled by the blocks in new WordPress, too. It took me ages to figure out that you needed to create a block to put a picture in! Not obvious at all.
