I just updated my Content Management System to WordPress 2.7.
For those of you who haven’t been following the news, WP 2.7 is a pretty significant update to WordPress. A bunch of things have been moved around.
Here’s a few initial thoughts:
– Oz Admin Drop Down – one of my favorite back-end plugins is no longer needed – as a matter of fact, it breaks the admin pages. So you need to delete it, deactivate it, etc. Otherwise, you won’t be able to see the menu on the left.
– Custom Admin Branding – no longer works – well, it works, but not as nice. WP changed the look of the log-in screen so my custom made log in no longer works. That’s not a big deal for me, but can’t wait to get this fixed for other clients. Being able to put in a custom Branded log in screen is a big deal.
Back End Menu:
– I love having the menu on the left hand side. I love being able to shrink the menu to just the icons – giving me more space for writing and other things. In short it is a big deal.
– The dashboard is now actually a useful page. Before it was nothing more than just a waste. Now, I’m looking forward to seeing it in action a little more. Things like quickPress intrigue me.
OK, that’s it for now. I’ll have more thoughts later as I work through everything.
