WordPress 2.8 – Wish List

Well, since we already have here WordPress 2.7 it's time to start preparing the wish list for WordPress 2.8 . And for that, the Automattic guys – as it is becoming customary – propose a survey in which we can participate in the development of the next version, scoring our priorities and wishes for WordPress 2.8 .

Among the options that are being considered, we have the following (in parenthesis, some of my opinions):

Movable Type becomes social

You know that although the theme of Help WordPress is specific to WordPress I like that you know how the competition works, and if they have something to contribute or improve.

This time it has been Six Apart who has moved file and submitted Motion a kind of server application with which to create something similar to a social network that mixes microblogging aggregator social profiles and much more.

 motion

Unfortunately, this application can only be tested for free while it is in phase ßeta as from January it will only be available to users, paid, of Movable Type Pro a low error my humble point of view

Regarding Motion e It's a weird spawn. It has an editor of the blog section, with which to publish text, images and video, but not only that, you can also decide to publish content from external applications such as Flickr YouTube and Twitter . In addition, and this if I liked, offers in the same package support for Facebook Connect Google Friend Connect and OpenID which means that you have from the first moment of the possibility of making community and connecting to the outside world, facilitating the socialization of your space.

Well, summarizing I will say that the concept seems interesting, although with a certain whiff to BuddyPress although with improvements such as the integration of socialization and authentication services, and it is a pity that it is not an open and free development. If you want you can have a look at the test site that they have created or even download the ßeta to test it.

NOTICE : this publication is from two years ago or more . If it's a code or a plugin it might not work in the latest versions of WordPress, and if it's a news story it might be obsolete. Then do not say that we have not warned you.
