Well! WordPress has unleashed its new dashboard on us. I must say, it’s not bad, not bad at all. I think it has some potential.
The layout’s not hard to get used to; things are situated along the left-hand side in a menu-type format. That makes things centralized and gives a cleaner appearance. I didn’t have to hunt around to find things. And this post is coming to you from the little “QuickPress” feature in the dashboard’s upper right corner, right there for use if you find yourself sparked with sudden unbridled and uncontrollable inspiration to blog.
It would be useful if this feature could be used similar to something like ScribeFire, which allows you to blog from any web site. (I was reading the comments on a technical writing book by Microsoft and one of the reviewers pointed out there is no such thing as a “website”, that it’s two separate words: “web site”. So there you have it. I know you were burning for that information.)
Anyway, I like the new dashboard so far. It has all the features and I think puts them at your fingertips in a better way.
