New Dashboard Features

QuickPress and Press This.

Press This is kind of like a Quick Digg Link, or A StumbleUpon quick link. Basically you save a bookmark that looks something like this:

  1. <a href=“javascript:var%20d=document,w=window,e=w.getSelection,k=d.getSelection,x=d.selection,s=(e?e():(k)?k():(x?x.createRange().text:0)),f=’http://yoursite.com/wp-admin/press-this.php&#8217;,l=d.location,e=encodeURIComponent,g=f+’?u=’+e(l.href)+’&t=’+e(d.title)+’&s=’+e(s)+’&v=2′;function%20a(){if(!w.open(g,’t’,’toolbar=0,resizable=0,scrollbars=1,status=1,width=720,height=570′)){l.href=g;}}a();void(0);”>Press This</a>

And when you find a website that you like, you can easily blog about it by clicking the Press This Bookmark, which opens a new window with the link to the page you are currently browsing! Great for Networking, and easy enough for anybody to use!

Screen Options screen options tab.

Plugin Interface,

which allows you to install plugins directly from your Admin section

It’s that easy. There is also a Tag Cloud to link to lists of popular search terms/plugins.

For those plugins that are on other sites, there is a simple upload form that allows you to upload the plugin and go from there.

Media Library

Although not significant, this new feature allows you to upload files to your WordPress uploads without having to create a post to do so. This is great if you want to upload a zip or some other large file to your hosting without having to go through FTP. The benefit is that it attaches a whole lot of meta data to the upload too!

Posts Management

Post management has been completely revolutionised with ‘Bulk Edit’. By selecting multiple files then adding an ‘edit’ filter, you can bulk moderate files in regards to their tags, categories, etc.

If you find a post display button, you can also toggle between displaying posts a certain way, with a short excerpt, or without.

Honourable Mention: Interface change.

Ok. Understandably I can’t overlook the biggest new feature; a complete interface overhaul. They have scrapped the colourful motifs, and have moved to a grey colour scheme, that is much more aesthetically pleasing. Word is they also have a blue admin theme in the pipeline!
