The truth is that these days it's nice to have a blog on WordPress.com. Well, it has always been a great option but it is that every day they add new features .
This morning I discovered one more, and there is now a new action icon in the users bar registered tagged with " Like ". You will see it when viewing an entry in a wordpress.com post and, if you click, it will be added to the list of entries you like being voted.
But that's not the end of it, and is that you can do " reblog " of the entry, which will open a quick editor ( quickpress ) where you can post something about that entry in any of the blogs you have registered. All very easy and interesting.
It would be a very good feature to include in BuddyPress I hope you add it soon because it is something that generates community.
In WLTC they have created an interesting survey, and I thought that it could be of interest also for the Hispanic community. Sure we learn a lot from the comments of the "whys" of each one when choosing a method of publication in WordPress.
In my case the main method " The writing panel of WordPress "Because after going through multiple desktop editors I found that the best thing is the WordPress panel itself, even when it is offline – using Gears – you can prepare your posts for later publication, and you have everything at hand. Additionally, the miniposts I publish from QuickPress and when I get the inspiration without my Mac to public hand from the iPhone, which is now quite drinkable, being able to copy and paste, insert URLs easily and adding images so simple.
In the survey you can choose several options (even all) to make the result more real …
Do you like the new functionality of WordPress 2.7 called QuickPress ?, then surely you will love this plugin that adds a widget in the sidebar of your blog to that you publish quickly in your blog as if it were Twitter .
Oh, and you do not need to have installed WordPress 2.7 to use QuickPress Widget .
] PS: The popularity of QuickPress has also reached the themes. Here you have the demo of the Theme QuickPress and here you can download it .
Well, after a long wait we finally have available for download the final version of WordPress 2.7 which I hope with so many revisions several surveys and tests are the most stable until now known, and more after the renovation that has suffered both its operation and the appearance of the administration panel.
As always, you can download it from the official link ] when it is available, because I just discovered it by chance when updating one of the blogs from the Beta versions (in fact right now it is not announced on the official website or on the development blog), and here I leave you a few posts of reference to facilitate the installation and the transition:
And, of course, if you are not yet decided, you can continue entangling in the WordPress 2.7 demo
Just released Beta 2 from WordPress 2.7 that solves a lot of bugs and also makes some minor adjustments like colors on the desktop, avatars in the administration panel and some other aesthetic novelty. Also in QuickPress you now have the image loading buttons. You can download it or update from the "Tools -> Update" menu if you already had Beta 1 installed. In the demo we have already updated automatically and it has taken less than 1 minute.
