Thus, without half measures, WordPress will be radically simplified. This is what Matt Mullenweg has said at a recent conference in New York .
This coming Sunday WordPress turns 9 and soon we will have the WordPress version 3.4, but WordPress must advance to be a tremendously simple and simple platform, especially oriented to mobile devices. Because WordPress already has the fundamental tools and code to be a solid, secure and powerful CMS but it has to address a mobile future that is already present for most users (first world, not forget us.)
And that is that WordPress should go to offer that feeling that they even tell us again, and we do not care, that " is not a CMS ", that it seems so simple that, as with the Mac, it seems incredible that with such a simple interface you can do so many great things from a personal blog to a high traffic website.
I think that We have all seen how WordPress mobile applications are becoming more useful, with CSS adaptable to the devices and with improvements in the interface, but we must take a step forward, especially thinking about the tablets those little tacit wonders useful that any child or elder know how to use nothing else to take them. That's what WordPress should tend to, and for that it will surely have to do without much " paraphernalia " current. Do you remember Habari ?, because I think that an advance in that direction would be right
Anyway, it's not a change that is made in a few days, but surely for the 10th anniversary of WordPress in a year, for when we are talking about WordPress 3.5 or WordPress 3.6 we will have an equally powerful platform, but much more friendly, simple and adapted to all types of devices, but before.
Note: bi0xid comments that a fork is being worked on simpler so that those who want a WordPress "lite" opt for it but keeping a full version to have a full-blown CMS. Come on, there will be 2 versions, the complete and the "light".
Personally I think something could be done in the style of Multisite, that just as you can expand your WordPress so that it becomes a network there would also be an option to make it lite . But this is already a matter of taste.
