Yes, it’s here – and it’s come with LOTS of new features which I am sure will benefit a lot of people in the long term.
The release of WordPress 3.0 has caused quite a buzz, however it has also left lot’s of people very confused!
What would the benefits of upgrading be to anyone? (more secure & lots more features)
If I don’t upgrade – what will happen? (you will be left in the dark with no torch!)
Can I upgrade automatically of do I have to use that FTP thingie? (yes – and not unless you want to!)
Are all plugins now obsolete? (no – most plugin developers will ensure their plugin is compatible)
Oh panic, panic ???? . . . . . .
No need to panic – there are lots of useful new features, including :-
- Custom Menus – create your own without knowing php, html, css or bbc!
- New Default Theme – and a good one at that! It takes advantage of all the new features – and is fairly easy to customize.
- Bulk Updating of Themes – with an automatic maintenance mode during the process.
- WordPress and WordPress MU have merged, allowing the management of multiple sites (called Multisite) from one WordPress installation.
In fact, there are so many new features, that you can see them ALL here . . . . WordPress Codex
We will attempt to give you some examples of the new features and how they are utilized in our Membership Section here . . . . .
