I use WordPress.com for my blog. I was surprised this evening to discover the Dashboard no longer includes (at the top, just to the right of the lefthand menu) my clickable blog title that takes me to the blog. The link has been inconveniently hidden two menu levels down at upper right (hover over my name, then go to pop-up menu, hover over blog name to pop up another menu, then click the final option ("Read blog") in that menu.
This strikes me as user-hostile, poor design. It's quite common for me to go to reading the blog from the dashboard, and burying that link so deeply---well, it makes no sense whatsoever to me.
I also cannot find any way to query support directly or to provide direct feedback.
I do not like these changes, both of which strike me as frustrating to users.
This is feedback, I suppose. When I could not contact support, I went to the forums and discovered that I have to register, and one item required was the version of WordPress I am using. I use WordPress.com---the free service, though I pay several annual subscription fees, so it's really not "free" in the normal sense.
The above got posted originally on the WordPress.org forum because the "help" link on my WordPress.com dashboard takes me there. Why am I being directed to the WordPress.org forums? I would like to know the thinking behind that.
