Not again!

linus_boxing_lucy01charles schulz knew the effectiveness of taking things into one’s own hands

Across the Bored woke up on the right side of the bed, had a pleasant breakfast and accomplished a few chores before getting down to some serious blogging this holiday morning when, once again, our temper was set off by a small but annoying discovery.

WP has seen fit to remove blog names from the new posts in the reader…. has anyone else noticed this or is only our monitor plagued with an appalling lack of identification under the tags and photos?  Is this not just a tad insulting to those who spent some considerable amount of time “Choosing the Perfect Blog Name” or paying good money annually for a dedicated domain?  If we wanted to be anonymous we wouldn’t be blogging, we would live in some remote location with no wi-fi and carve our memoirs onto a log. Days were when we could workaround the dreaded “403 Forbidden” and even put up with unexpected cut-outs and missing posts but this Big Brotheresque move really sucks.

Soon we will just have barcodes….

    I noticed this with two Blogs on the reader yesterday but not all.. I wonder why? Maybe its just an evolution again of something new to come?

    I may be missing something here, but in my reader it still says ‘Across the Bored’ at the end of the post summary. Did it appear elsewhere before?

      I (was) getting a lovely string of tags across the top, a photo beneath, a few lines from the beginning of the post below that then the like and reblog widgets – no name no nothing – it has since been “fixed”.

        Ah, you have to love technology :)
        We’re having problems with our telephone line and consequently broadband access – up and down all day long, resetting the router, resetting my laptop’s Wi-Fi adapter. It’s so painful I have taken up reading again :)

        Glad your problem is ‘fixed’

    I still have blog names on posts in my Reader. My problem is that the Freshly Pressed page only shows 6 or 8 posts at a time. Maybe we need to reboot our computers?
