The new WordPress 2.7 is great. I really like the new layout. Spotting how to hide and show the left side bar was a bit tricky. Now that I know how to do it, I no longer have overlapping columns after zooming in Firefox. Other than that a few broken plugins, it has been a smooth and pleasant transation.
Yet the WP development team is not taking a well-deserved break. On the WordPress official blog, I spotted a post: Prioritizing Features for WordPress 2.8.
Everyone knows by now that WordPress 2.7 is packed with new features. Now that it’s available (almost 600,000 downloads as I write this!), it’s time to start working on 2.8. There were dozens of things that got tabled during 2.7 due to time constraints, and there are a lot of high-rated features in the Ideas forum, so there are a lot of potential features under consideration.
Unable to still my curiosity, I checked the post and the related poll to see what is in store for us. One of the poll’s options is accessibility. I am not sure what accessibility means to the WP team, but any accessibility is good. Unfortunately, accessibility is only a priority for those who know the need. I suspect it will not get many votes in the poll, unless the community of WP users who are aware of access issues make their voice heard. I did not understand all the options in the poll, but I answered as best as I knew how.So, take a minute or two to read the post and fill out the poll.If you find this post useful or interesting, please consider buying me a cup of coffee.
