Shade Tree Sites |Building Better Websites
Well so far – so good with WordPress 3.0 – hasn’t killed any of my websites yet but on the other hand since many of the websites I have are customized I really haven’t been able to take advantage of some of the new features like the menu.
- WordPress and WordPress MU have merged, allowing the management of multiple sites (called Multisite) from one WordPress installation.
- New default theme “Twenty Ten” takes full advantage of the current features of WordPress.
- New Custom Menu Management feature, allows creation of custom menus combining posts, pages, categories, tags, and links for use in theme menus or widgets.
- Custom Header and Custom Background APIs.
- Contextual help text accessed under the Help tab of every screen in the WordPress administration.
- Ability to set the admin username and password during installation.
- Bulk updating of themes with an automatic maintenance mode during the process.
- Support for Shortlinks.
- Improved Custom Post Types and Custom Taxonomies including hierarchical (category-style) support. (Try the Custom Post Type UI or GD Custom Posts And Taxonomies
- Tools plugins to see the possibilities.
- A lighter admin color scheme to increase accessibility and put the focus more squarely on your content.
Biggies to me are:
Only bug I’ve found so far is the post tags is a little finicky – sometimes drops down and sometimes doesn’t but that’s nothing to worry about.
