Dear Happiness Engineers,
Thank you ever so much for fixing the word count. Now can you please sort out the tags!
This morning I published a new post on my blog about progress on my winter garden, the Carrots I am growing for Christmas, sorting out my vegetable garden ready for next spring and the Chilli plants I am growing for use over winter! Can you see the common thread here? Yep, that would be gardening and growing my own food!
With my post written and photo's added, I carefully selected my tags: Growing your own, vegetable garden, chillis and food were amongst those selected from my tag cloud. So, bearing in mind the growing your own/vegetable garden theme of my post, would you like to guess which tag the WordPress Reader has chosen to show under my blog entry? Food!!!!!!!!! Why?
Obviously your Reader, being an inanimate object run off (I am assuming with my limited knowledge of software development) a rule engine of some sorts, can not hope to comprehend and compute the main feature of any given post. So why has it been 'enhanced' (and I use that word very, very loosely) with this process?
I find it quite arrogant of your developers to think that they could write a bit of code, that would be better at selecting from a string of tags ticked by any given blog author, the one single tag that would best represent a blog entry. As the author of my blog entry, I can assure you that I am the person best placed to know which tag or tags should be aligned with that post and I find it annoying and highly irritating that you have effectively over ridden my choices! The fact that the least applicable of the tags I chose was chosen by the Reader software only serves to add injury to insult!
I would therefore like to suggest that the showing of the tag string chosen by the author of a blog was and remains the best option and that this particular change is also rolled back.
