What is up with WordPress?

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what is up with the platform builders at wordpress? I have had this blog for five years now and have always built my posts in Microsoft Word. After getting my posts ready I generally copy and paste over into wordpress. My format always held until this week. It seems that the web platform builders at wordpress have been busy again this week because everything within my blog looks different. Now it is near impossible to format a post even within wordpress itself.

I have also noticed that every so often, the feel and look of the text builder within wordpress changes, yet there never seems to be anything new added to the post builder. What I would like to know is why mess with it? If nothing new is going to be added and nothing is broke, then why fix what isn’t broke? Has anyone else had issues here lately with building posts?

Thanks to all who can give me some insight on this problem.

    Morning Hershel, I am still new to wordpress. I noticed when I do posts in Microsoft, then copy and paste into wordpress, there is extra ‘odd script” at top of post. Then I’d erase it because it looked odd of course. I then take it to notepad and paste first into notepad. Then copy off notepad and paste into wordpress, that seemed to solve my problem. Not sure if that is similar as your problem or not.

      Morning to you. Thanks for your comment.

      Up till this past week I have had no problems. I think I’ll give your method a try.

      Blessings to you.

    I’ve also experienced the word press format alterations made with the MS word copy and paste. I don’t have the time to reformat certain posts so I have just left it for now until I figure out what to do.

      Thanks for commenting. As I stated, I have always used this method and placed my posts in folders within my computer, so I can always reference back to them if I choose to do so.

      Placing up this weeks posts was difficult. Maybe we can get it figured out together.

    I don’t know if it’s just me, but I stopped typing things up first on Word Document a long time ago because it always end up having serious problems. This goes back years ago so I’m surprised that you have been able to go that long writing on Word Doc and pasting it

      How do you put you post together then brother? Do you just build within wordpress’ builder or do you use a different doc. builder?

      Thanks for your input.
