Have you found the WordPress Matrix?

Written by Tom Greenwood - July 31, 2012

It is a little known fact that somewhere inside the WordPress control panel is a gateway to The Matrix.

When you enter The Matrix you will be told that your website will self destruct in 3..2..1..seconds, and then all goes black as you are transported to another reality.  All very exciting, but in practice there is a good chance that you will think that your website has been infected with a virus and that it is actually going to self-destruct.  Especially because the page title changes to “Danger!”

Hence this blog post, so that you can relax in the knowledge that you don’t have a virus.  It is just the WordPress team taking the piss out of you for doing something stupid.

Some of you will already know how to find way into The Matrix in WordPress, as you have already performed this rather stupid action.  What is it?

Follow the White Rabbit

It’s trying to compare the difference between a post revision and the same post revision in the version control settings.  Needless to say, if you compare something with itself then you’ll find it is the same.  To drum this into you (and because the WP guys clearly had some time on their hands), they created this little hoax.
