What do I mean by this question? What do I mean by a blog’s health? Well these are the two most obvious question you are going to ask me if I ask you a question you have just seen in the headline of this post: – Is your blog healthy? Yes, this is a real question and not a gimmick just to attract you to read this post. I have many times faced this question for the past more than an year during my blog’s existence. I al so didn’t ever think that my Blog’s Health is as important to be taken care of as my own health. There did not exist for me the very concept of a blog’s health before I was faced with some very critical situations that lead to the shutdown of my blog for over an year.

WordPress 2.7 is available !

WordPress 2.7 is available!

I have read this message over and over on my wordpress blog’s admin pages. Today i wanted to explore what is new on the latest version of the blogging engine the world relies on for their hassle free blogging needs. I just tried some of the features of the administration panel of the engine and one thing i have to say is that – I WAS BOWLED OVER by the design and features improvements made in the publishing engine’s administration panel.

Although I didn’t probably get to explore all the new features, I will try to show some of the changes they have made and I liked.

Now the same WordPress Administration Dashboard with all the Screens and Menu Panels shrunk. The design has been made to look so elegant that you can’t go anywhere else for the blogging stuff. I just like the Lean and Clean design and the layout of the Dashboard.

Now here is the wordpress 2.7 Administration Menu with some options expanded.

The WordPress 2.7 Administration Dashboard Menu Panel with all the menu items shrunk. The options within the menu items are hidden behind using what seems to be AJAX and expand once the menu item is clicked upon. It makes the interface similar to a desktop application and increases the efficiency of use of space on the Administration Dashboard.

This upgrade seems to be focussed on improving the design elements of the administration area of WordPress as well as improving the space utilization using the hiding features of all the elements on the dashboard. You can keep what ever screen you need and even keep them expanded or shrunk on your will. That is just fantastic to use. I am addicted to WordPress 2.7.
