I gather some people might have had a barrage of old posts from my blog today.
I’ve been at home not feeling very well, and thought that reorganising my posts into better categories would be a useful way of spending a homebound day. WordPress appears to think that the recategorised posts are new ones and has been sending people old posts as though they were new. It is very irritating that what should be a bit of invisible housekeeping becomes public in this way. It seems to only be the posts that I’ve linked to my other posts (pingbacks – which it sends me pointless individual notifications of as though this were news too) but that’s no excuse.
It’s time for WordPress to address this issue. So, what can I say but sorry? Stupid WordPress.
