Fuck Off, WordPress (Rant 2.0)

July 13th, 2010 1:26am 2 comments

I was typing an epic post again. Then I pressed submit. Then it took me to the login page when I was already logged in. I went to check the draft and there was one line there. For fuck’s sake, what a piece of shit. I actually spent time on it. When is this shit going to do real time saving like Google Docs? I’m sick of losing shit, like I did that other time.

Note to self: always copy the fucking thing every once in a while for good measure. I don’t learn

For Fucks Sake

First of all, fuck fucking WordPress and piece of shit Firefox. I was in the middle of an epic rant bashing Apple iOS 4’s multitasking and hit some keyboard shortcut and it lost everything.

Fuck Firefox for its stupid ass keyboard shortcut and fuck WordPress for not autosaving. Fuckin shit should model Google Docs and AJAX save every word I type in in realtime. Christ. Now I need to write this crap all over again.

And for fuck’s sake, get Google Chrome already. Firefox’s Javascript engine is slower than my grandma.

Come on, WordPress…

You know what really pisses me off sometimes? WordPress. Never use the schedule post feature – it’s a useless piece of shit. WordPress allows you to write a draft blog entry and then schedule it to publish at a later date. Every time I do this, it always misses the schedule and then I struggle severely to get it published because it keeps scheduling it. Well maybe I don’t want it scheduled you stupid bitch, I just want it live. I set my end of the decade ramble to publish at 8AM and was supposed to wake up with it here. Instead it’s being a shithead and now I can’t get it published. This also happens on another WordPress blog I maintain. Could be a server setting, but it’s poorly documented. Fix your shit.

Edit. Okay so I Googled this a little bit. Seems like what happens is that WordPress runs a cron (automation) job. There’s a setting in wp-includes/cron.php where it checks every .01 seconds, so if the server is a slow piece of crap and can’t keep up, it misses it. I set it to check less frequently and that might work.

Change:
$cron_url = get_option( 'siteurl' ) . '/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron';
wp_remote_post( $cron_url, array('timeout' => 0.01, 'blocking' => false, 'sslverify' => apply_filters('https_local_ssl_verify', true)) );

TO
$cron_url = get_option( 'siteurl' ) . '/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron';
wp_remote_post( $cron_url, array('timeout' => 20, 'blocking' => false, 'sslverify' => apply_filters('https_local_ssl_verify', true)) );

A post (the decade recap) is scheduled for 11:45AM EST. It better work.
