Here’s a short video showing what’s new for WordPress 2.8 which is available for a one click upgrade now.
- You can now swap themes all from the comfort of the WP dashboard in the same way you can install plugins with WP 2.7
- New CodePress editor makes it much easier to find code thanks to syntax highlighting.
- The widgets editor is improved – you can easily move widgets from one area to another e.g. from sidebar to footer with drag and drop all on one screen.
- It’s faster.
Just a caution – one of my sites was completely knocked out by the upgrade which is one of those times I’m glad of web hosting with good support !
