Guide to using WordPress 2.7

Lucia Mancuso, 15 January, 2009 14 Comments

Back in October we posted a WordPress tutorial for version
2.6.2.  Mike created another guide for Version 2.7 since it looks
quite different.

Link to the guide: TBS-Wordpress_Walkthrough-2.7-V1_.pdf – it covers all the essentials for someone who is unfamiliar with WordPress 2.7.

Some of the great new features of WordPress version 2.7 are:

  • Stick Post to Front Page – you can select this option and the post will stay to the top of the front page.
  • Quick Edit – this function allows you to quickly edit any context excluding the body of the post without having to load the page
  • Quick Press – allows you to post right from the dashboard if you
    only need access to the title, body, tags & upload function.
  • Mass Editing – you can now edit categories, tags, status etc… of multi posts at the same time.
  • Screen Options – allows you to choose what items you want visible on
    the pages of the control panel. You can strip an entire post page to
    only show the title and body.
  • Pagination of Comments is built in to the theme
  • Dashboard – you can reply to comments & are reminded of drafts directly from the dashboard
  • Comments – you can reply to comments from the Comment admin area
  • Threaded Comments – makes discussions easier to follow

We will update the guide as feedback pours in – so please feel free to leave your questions or comments.

    Glad to hear that Jeff – I like to step back and remember that not
    everyone is a WordPress expert We enjoy creating easy to use guides for
    those that are new to the wonderful world of blogging.
