WordPress 3.9

WordPress 3.9 “Smith” has arrived, bringing with it a new visual editor to WordPress. The WordPress admin UI has always been one of WordPress’ big advantages over other CMS platforms. This sets the bar even higher. My thanks to the entire WordPress team who have put out another great release which will be sure to keep WordPress at the top of the CMS list.

WordPress 3.3 Released

WordPress 3.3 is now running on this site. The WordPress team continues to provide excellent admin interface changes with each new release. The new improved media upload method is a welcome change. I think this is the one area that new users struggled with the most.  Thanks to the whole team for another fantastic release.

Jamas.net now running WordPress 2.9

The WordPress has done another fantastic job with version 2.9 of WordPress. You can check out the list of features added but let me highlight the two that I am most excited about.

The first is the ability to batch update plugins. I am running 10+ WordPress sites at the moment which means keeping the those sites updated is a fair amount of work. This should make updating plugins a snap!

The second change is the ability to embed video directly in a post without the use of a plugin. I have been having a hard time finding a plugin that does this really well.

So again to the WordPress team thanks again for an amazing update.

Jamas.net now running WordPress 2.8

Another great release of WordPress has been released. WordPress 2.8 provides the back end user with lots of ability to control the look of each section of the admin menu. Great for hiding features that get in the way of an efficient work flow.

I have been working on some new projects using a few other CMS systems. WordPress still continues to stand out as my favourite because the WordPress team has put an amazing amount of effort into making the admin interface easy and intuitive.

As a reader of this site it should seem a little snappier with 2.8.

A big thanks to the WordPress team for another great release.
