A customizable dashboard, multi-file upload, built-in galleries, one-click plugin upgrades, tag management, built-in Gravatars, full text feeds, and faster load times sound interesting? WordPress 2.5 will remain familiar to seasoned users while improving the experience for everyone. This isnâ€™t just a fresh coat of paint, itâ€™s very organized so that you can forget about the software and focus on your own creative pursuits. Here is a sneak peek of WordPress 2.5.
With the new design, the number of navigation options are cut in half, separating the primary functions (writing, managing posts and pages, editing the blogâ€™s design, and managing comments) from secondary functions. This presents information at a more comfortable pace, revealing only the information thatâ€™s necessary. Everything you need is still there â€” just better organized.
The new write screen only displays the information that youâ€™ll use most often. It displays the most common fields in a way that makes posting incredibly easy. Additional options are hidden away until you need them. The new Write screen anticipates the natural flow of the way you write, and is smart enough to remember the way you left it so that your preferred writing environment is always quickly available. The new visual editor even has a handy full-screen mode to help block out distractions while composing your newest post.
The Manage screens have been redesigned and unified so that now, managing your pages, posts, media, and comments all use similar, consistent interfaces. I am really looking forward to use WordPress 2.5.
