WordPress Glitches

I’ve been reading a lot of posts recently about various glitches being experienced on WordPress from comments and likes never being seen and being sent to the spam folder, posts being scheduled to never get published and vanishing into the unknown, the stats being scrambled… I’m currently experiencing 2 totally separate glitches it seems…

1) My reader isn’t showing hardly any of the blogs that I follow. I can see a few hours worth of posts by people I follow then it shows me things I saw 2 weeks ago. This is super frustrating as I really like to read all the posts my blog friends publish.

2) My spell check button has totally disappeared. I can’t find it on the app or on the website when writing posts. I’ve tried logging out and back in, refreshing the page and still nothing…

If anyone has any suggestions, especially with the spell check then help would be greatly appreciated! Writing everything on word to copy and paste into the editor is a P.I.T.A (pain in the a$$)

Just to note I am using the Classic editor as I’m still figuring out Gutenberg….

Edited to add, this is my current screen when blogging….
