Newbie with WordPress

I haven’t used WordPress before.

It was a rather frustrating experience to put together my first article on a topic involving programming, which included some source code in the text. After much trial and error I discovered that the only working method was to use HTML mode persistently, otherwise the formatting of the source code is lost. Other coders have the same experience.

In other words, I am back to scratch – to the tools I used twenty and some years ago. Notepad and HTML. This isn’t the only experience that is telling me the world has failed to move forward in those years.
