In the previous example the chosen color scheme is " sunrise " but you can customize it, choosing from any of the available ones, putting your name in English and lowercase.

Definitive list of WordPress news 3.8 • WordPress Help

 welcome wordpress 3.8

In case you do not remember, before the end of 2013 we will have the new one available version, WordPress 3.8 that, unlike the previous version, more focused on internal novelties will come loaded with visual novelties, of those that fall in love … or just the opposite. [19659006] So, if you want to go to an idea of ​​what the WordPress 3.8 news will be, here is a list of them, which are already defined and underway, so you can enjoy them before the end of the year .

… New default theme: Twenty Fourteen …

 twenty-fourteen "width =" 500 "height =" 227 "class =" alignnone size-medium wp-image-71535 "srcset =" https: // 500w, y-fourteen.png 700w "sizes =" (max-width: 500px) 100vw, 500px "/> </a><br /> The new theme by default, breaking with the usual dynamic of blog-style themes, will be a complete – not complex – digital magazine style theme with special emphasis on prominent content and a distribution away from the traditional, so far, default themes of WordPress. </p>
<p> The name ?, <a title= Twenty Fourteen following the sequence applied until now, and because it will be the current one during 2014, and its virtues, these

  • Adaptable design ( responsive )
  • Featured content area, at the top of the screen, showing up to a maximum of featured entries (eye, will require JetPack installed)
  • Native support of input formats: standard, video, image, gallery, mini-entry, appointment.
  • List of entries of each format, showing the last two entries of each input format in the sidebar
  • Fixed header on screens over 770px width
  • Social links area at the top of the header to Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, LinkedIn, Flickr, GitHub, Dribbble, YouTube and Vimeo profiles
  • No less than 7 areas of widgets.
  • Two custom menu locations.
  • Customizable header height
  • Customizable background
  • Optional full-width page template (without sidebar). [19659014] Floating text citation format left or right.
  • Various levels of submenus.
  • 100% GPL

The theme, which you can try here is currently undergoing major adaptations from the original theme because, for example, a base image had been created initially for the highlighted content, but as in the initial installations it would be too soulless, it has been opted to improve the visualization although there is no Featured images and, incidentally, for blog-style use.

… New theme management interface …

 appearance themes wordpress 3.8

One of the sections that suffers the most changes (or enjoy) is the administration of topics, which he already needed, eliminating, in principle, that stupid tab to add themes, integrating everything on a single screen. But the thing is not there, we will see details of what is actually the adaptation of the THX38 plugin

I say that the tab to add themes is deleted " in principle "Because you do not see it even though it's there. To access it you have two ways; On the one hand the typical button of " Add new ", but also a large box, in the area of ​​installed themes, from where to install themes. This makes a lot of sense because when installing a new theme is what you will do, fill in that " hollow ".

 button add wordpress themes 3.8

I think, however, that this should take a step forward and offer the installation of themes, not taking you to the happy tab to add themes but directly in a popup. And, although the visual idea is fine, in short, what has been done is to replace the link on the tab with two new buttons, which seems half an achievement even if the idea is good.

Another element that will catch your attention immediately will be a shtick at the top of the window, with the number of topics available, in addition to the active, which will change as you go installing themes. It does not have much use, it's just a reference.

But the important changes come in the same captures of the installed themes, because when you move over them you will see new buttons that allow you to activate them, preview them or obtain information quickly. This, in the case of the active theme, is summarized in a prominent button of " Customize " to access this feature, another of the novelties.

… Improvements in the personalization of themes …

 customize theme wordpress 3.8

The customization utility also incorporates a series of improvements that will make it much more intuitive and easy to use. Now you can really get the customization bar, access the visual changes easier and visually. Everything from the new theme interface and adapting better to your content.

… New widgets interface …

 wordpress widgets 3.8

If there is an administration section that will show changes, it is the widgets, because it has been completely redesigned, not only the window but the widgets, layout of the sidebars, practically everything.

Now there is more space for the sidebars because the widgets management screen has been completely redesigned . It has also replaced the typical arrow of the title bar of the boxes of the sidebars by an icon of " gear ", more intuitive and visible.

Also, besides being able to drag and drop widgets , when clicking on anyone you have a button to add, because not for everyone it was so intuitive that " drag it ". Now, also for accessibility, in the menu that appears when you click on any widget, you can choose which sidebar of the active theme to add to it with a single click

 add widget wordpress 3.8

What is said, much improved.

… New Desktop …

 desktop wordpress 3.8

The desktop, the main administration screen, has also undergone improvements, reducing the number of metaboxes, or widgets, available and with a default distribution in 3 columns that will allow you to access everything faster.

Based on WP Dash now the main widgets are two instead of the already retired "Right Now", replaced by 2 named " Content of the site ", with the subject used, basic statistics and those things; and " Activity ", where links to posts, comments, etc. will go

… Omnisearch …

 omnisearch "width =" 500 "height =" 283 "class =" alignnone size-medium wp -image-71849 "srcset =" 500w, /omnisearch-1024x580.png 1024w, 1440w "sizes =" (max-width: 500px) 100vw, 500px "/> </a> </p>
<p> Another fundamental complement from now on in WordPress is <a href= the Omnisearch module until now part of the JetPack plugin that, with WordPress 3.8, is incorporated as an internal WordPress search engine.

virtues ?, they are so many and so good that alone that's why it's worth having JetPack installed although from WordPress 3.8 will already be at your disposal with the standard installation.

… MP6 …

But if there is a culprit of this new user experience in WordPress is MP6, the plugin that offers a new and complete WordPress administration experience, with new colors to choose for each user, new much more intuitive icons, new design of boxes, blocks , Windows, practically everything.

If you have already been using it as a plugin alone in WordPress 3.8 you will not need it, it will be by default as a new interface. I will not roll up anymore, we already have a lot of talk about MP6 .

And with that I think there's plenty to spare. In fact there will be no new features, only improvements in which I have detailed, so this is the definitive list of new WordPress 3.8 . They will be able to change something (or a lot) the different novelties but there will be no more until the next version, but there will be talk about WordPress 3.9 and still do not touch.

If you want to try WordPress 3.8 you can do it here it goes by the version (right now) Alpha 26127.

<p> The plugin in which you are experiencing <strong> the future of the WordPress administration interface </strong><a href= MP6 has had recent updates that have incorporated some very interesting improvements.

For example, now there is a new color scheme called Midnight quite nice for my taste, although I still prefer softer and minimalist schemes, that has them.

Another very interesting novelty, although I do not think that everyone likes it, is the redesign that makes the widgets area [19] 459011]. To start, change the area where the sidebar areas are, going from the right to the left, which I think is a great success, but what you might not like so much is that the descriptions of what each widget does disappear , although you can see them by clicking on the question mark of each one.

There are also changes in the menu area design … [19659004]  design menus mp6

and redesign of some icons :

Also has improved response and adaptation from mobile devices although I have found that it is still not perfect still overlapping some menus at lower resolutions, something I hope will be solved little by little.

In any case it is a redesign of the administration area of WordPress very interesting, that It is convincing me, and if you get used to using it there is no turning back, especially the icons, much more illustrative, and the recent change in the use of widgets, a greater improvement than you think at first sight.

Do you remember the MP6 plugin with which to completely change the WordPress administration interface? , yes, I refer to that plugin in which they go testing possible future administration interfaces .

Well, Automattic has decided to incorporate this aesthetics as the appearance by default in its WordPress service .com how announce in the official blog .

Personally I like it a lot, but in reality I do not the decision to make it look like the default seems right, especially since in you can not decide to go back to the previous design.

Another associated innovation, not yet available in the plugin version, is an adjustment to offer one adaptable version (re sponsive) to mobile devices of this new interface of MP6 .

Anyway, it seems that the experiments are still being done in, although you can not control them, something that I think is a bit risky, but that does not stop being an incentive for the impatient, although perhaps not the most successful for more professional uses of the service, where these sudden changes can confuse the majority of users they may appreciate more customization possibilities and fewer cosmetic issues.

But of course, that's a matter of taste … and uses.

If you use, the real thing, you can try MP6 and activate it or deactivate it how and when you like it.

The interface of withdrawal formats of WordPress 3.6

Due to the delays that version 3.6 of WordPress is suffering, mainly because of the enormous work to launch efficiently and without cracks the new interface of input formats in the editor, it is delayed for a later version this announced novelty of WordPress 3.6 .

WordPress 3.6 was already being delayed too much so a few minutes ago it was announced that the incorporation of the visual interface of input formats is delayed , which can be incorporated by means of a plugin, something similar to what is being done with MP6 .

Personally, since you ask me ( ah, you have not asked me! same, I say ) is that should stay like this, how plugin, but hey, that's another question that we discussed days ago .

The good news is that WordPress 3.6 will be available very soon once removed Ada this functionality. I'll let you know when I know a specific date.
