3 Best Features of WordPress 2.7

WordPress 2.7 is released and as it clocks thousands of downloads, there are some really useful features out there that make WP 2.7 the best release ever. As a long time of WordPress user, here are 3 best WordPress features that I loved most.

One-Click WordPress Upgrades

My biggest grudge was the cumbersome WordPress upgrades. Every time a new release was out, back up your database, run through the whole upgrade process and if something goes wrong, then run around for support.

I believe the best and most useful feature in WordPress 2.7 is the one-click upgrades to the WordPress installation. If you run multiple WordPress blogs, this is the biggest time saver ever. Add to this the ability to install any plugin directly from WordPress.org with a single click, what more do you want.

This would save WordPress newbies a lot of hassle of repeated upgrades. Combine this with a one-click WordPress installation provided by Dreamhost (one of the reasons why we love Dreamhost), you might never need to use FTP to install or upgrade WordPress ever.

Super Easy Comment Management

The ajaxy interface for comment management from the admin sure has made it easy to manage and quick edit comments and has increased my ability, ease and motivation to reply to comments.

I can now interact more with my reader comments, by replying from the admin menu itself, which puts more life into the blog and comment moderation and edits are no longer a tedious chore, especially with keyboard shortcuts in place. Displayed on the reader side as comment threading, and comment paging – you have a magical commenting system in place.

Easy access Admin menu

The Screen options further enhance what most frequently used items you want to display on various screens and hides the rest away. Drag and Drop the dashboard items for easy access to what you use the most.

    The admin interface is just flat out better. Easy access to drafts is a time saveer and the quick press function is perfect for those on-the-fly posts you want to get out without a lot of tooling around. This is the first upgrade that really makes it feel like an improved product.

  2. Michael says:

    My two favorite new features of 2.7 are the new post page, which is much cleaner in terms of layout and a whole lot easier to use and I absolutely love the quick edit post feature, just to be able to quickly edit tags, categories, post title, etc. is amazing.

    I agree with this post, I think that the automatic update function will lead to a broader adoption of WordPress as some people didn’t like having to update their install from time to time. Thanks for the post.
