VatulBlog now comes to you via WordPress 2.5.
Thus far, I am underwhelmed by the new dashboard because it is powered by widgets. So what if I can customize some aspects of the WordPress interface to my feng-shui liking if something as simple as the Insert/Edit Link window doesn’t work? (Update: The form works in Mozilla Firefox, but populates with absolutely nothing in IE6.) Incidentally, during the upgrade, it took three FTP uploads of the edit-form-advanced.php file before extended post options would show up on the Write Post form.
A few nice additions: Full-screen WYSIWYG editing is cool; it allows you to concentrate on writing. Posting also allows the creation of a post which contains a thumbnail gallery. Clicking on each thumbnail takes you to a sub-post.
Some more tinkering is in order. If I am not used to this “wordy” interface in a week’s time, I’m going back to 2.3.3. Thank goodness there are no security patches associated with 2.5.
