It Just Keeps Getting Better!
Today WordPress 3.8, Parker (named after jazz legend, Charlie Parker) was released! I started using WordPress about 4 years ago, and it just keeps getting better.
Some Nice Enhancements!
If you install or upgrade to 3.8 you’re instantly going to notice some major changes. First of all the overall feel of the admin area is much nicer. Better typography, colors and more.
Two of My Favorite Updates
- Mobile responsive admin area – this will be much better for developing content on the go! Being able to generate new posts from a smartphone or tablet is just the natural progression of things.
- New Widget Area – no more having to drag widgets up and down the page to put them in the appropriate sidebar. Now you can just click on the widget you want to add, and assign it to the desired location. I love this!
- I love the jazz reference when they name their themes! (okay, this isn’t anything new)
List of New Features
- New Admin Area Aesthetics – clean typography, refined contrast
- Mobile Responsive Admin
- New/More Admin Color Schemes
- New Theme Management – bigger thumbnails, live preview option and more
- New Widget Area – no more dragging widgets up and down the page!
- Twenty Fourteen – very nice new theme that comes bundled with WordPress 3.8 (see live demo)
Update, Update, Update!
I’ve gone through several WordPress installations and have updated them with no issues. If you’re one of my clients I urge you to login to your admin area and click that update button!
