A new update of WordPress has arrived. Many things have changed in this content management platform in recent years, now the updates of new versions are a simple button. For those who suffer this by doing it via FTP, in some moments we have even come to think that simplicity makes us lose the grace of the code. But how good that a tool of free use can have that level of evolution.
The innovations are in aspects and usability, already necessary and as an open source tool, obey to changes requested by the community.
Greater control of what we see.
A button called "Screen Options" has been added, which lets you customize what you want to be visible or hidden. It is a simply great change, depending on what we are operating, is contextualized and complemented with the AJAX facility of dragging panels.
For the case, I'm showing them the input panel, see that I can choose which fields may be visible in the Browsing and even how many posts are deployed down. This functionality is very good, since in the measure that we install plugins, spaces are often added that limit the workspace.
You can also choose how many columns you want to see. Imagine having the writing panel of new post without so much hindrance.
Direct access to the admin panel
It is shown above, a bar similar to Blogger, with quick access to the panel, widgets, new entry, there is a search form and also shows recent updates. Very good, although I have not seen if you can configure somewhere the option to hide or customize it. I suppose it would save the risk of being opened by mistake.
For programmers there are other news that more than content worries that you have to update developed plugins. Not to say some outrageous, better leave it as is was announced.
There's a bucket of candy for developers as well, including our new Post Formats support Which makes it easy for themes to create portable tumblelogs with different styling for different types of posts, New CMS capabilities Like archive pages for custom content types, a New Network Admin, An overhaul of the import and export system, and the ability to perform Advanced taxonomy and custom fields queries.
In good time for the news of WordPress.
