In a previous post, a month ago, comparing how to insert images in Typepad versus WordPress, I gave TypePad the upper hand. Today, I have to revise this. WordPress has changed the image/media settings, to the better, at least from my point of view. In typical WordPress manner new features are released on Friday afternoon, unannounced, which of course resulted in a barrage of angry and frustrated cries for help in the wordpress.com support forum, because images were suddenly no longer working the way they used to do. Anyways…what did actually change at WordPress to make me change my mind?
One of the biggest differences between TypePad and WordPress is how to insert images in post. As a long-term TypePad user I am really confused by this.
Just like WordPress, TypePad too has an easy “insert image” button/icon in the composer toolbar. But what happens when you click this button in WordPress is very different from TypePad. In this post I will try to explain the differences as best I can. As it turns out, WordPress does have some tricks up the sleeve that TypePad has not. TypePad on the other, seems more straightforward and intuitive for the inexperienced blogger. Which one is better I leave up to you to decide.
