Sunday Snippets 2008-04-27

This was my first “normal” week in months. I was still incredibly busy, but a little less stressed. I think that this is partially because I declared bankruptcy on a few projects. Finally admiting that you are not going to do something allows you to get things done.

I also went for some easier/boring blog posts this week. Really only two out of six were worth reading and the one on BatchBlue was easy. The post on China was longer but since it is closely related to work, I had been thinking about the topic quite a while before writing which made it easier.

Oh wow! I just switched to full screen mode in WordPress 2.5! Very cool! Very much needed, too. The header space in the new admin theme takes up half of the screen. I am going to have to play with the CSS on that. The good news is that I can. Anyway, back to snippets.

The king of podcasting talking about what podcasting is all about, in case you were wondering. Thanks, Josh for the link.

With as close as the primaries are, you have wonder what the general election is going to look like.

  1. So, the WordPress software update, do you know how closely those updates mirror the site? They changed the look of the dashboard. Yes I used the word “change” intentionally. I refuse to call something an update unless I actually think it is one. Just wondering.

  2. Yes it is the same change. And behind the scenes it is an upgrade. I am not sure how handles admin themes but I guess I am about to find out. Anyway the idea behind the update is that you can now control how the admin side looks not just the front end. From what I read at least half of WP users did not like the new default theme and will be changing it. So what changes to the admin side are you looking for?

  3. None. I actually liked the format that they had. The new layout has far too much stuff on the Dashboard, and I do not get to manipulate the design to boot. Not really an update for me. Oh well, maybe the next change will actually be an update.

  4. Well… it’s been a long time since a post has been made here.

    As you may now know WordPress 2.8.2 is now released.

    It was released on July 20, 2009.

    I think the XSS vulnerability fix was a necessary change. Now 2.9 is coming and maybe we will see some improvement in the multi medium features. Which I think is a good move. I would sure like to see better media features. There is so much multi medium online now it’s just going crazy. The more tools and function in this area sould make it very interesting.
