Has the Edit Button on that Other Site Really Disappeared?
I just went to check some of my hundreds of bitly links to Bubblews posts today to see which are OK and which I needed to edit. Sure enough. I found another that made not much sense without the photo the text refers to. So I went to click the edit button and it was gone. To make sure I wasn't imagining this, I checked a page I had open for a recipe I had published. It's been open on my computer for a few days waiting for me to have time to make the treats. The edit button was still there. I refreshed, and the edit button was gone.
I suppose a lot of 400-character writers who kept fussing about the abuse of said button finally got their wish. Once again, instead of doing something reasonable like reprogramming so that the edited bubbles don't go to the front page and back into notifications, admin just took the edit button away and made it impossible for those of us who have broken bubbles to fix them. I'm hoping this is a temporary measure that will be in place only until they fix the real problem of the edits going to the front page and notifications again.
Please friends. Wake me up and tell me this is a nightmare.
Update: I finally saw the official announcement about this. Support does say that this is temporary and we will be able to edit older posts again. They didn't give any idea of how soon that might happen.
