So much good work. Thanks WordPress crew!
Simply Fantastic! Excellent Work! Thx
Cooler, smoother, simpler blogging.
Right on target. 🙂
Now let’s get those plugins updated!
great movie to introduce everything.
Great 🙂 Thanks Thanks Thanks 🙂 Let’s try 2.8 🙂
Amazing stuff! I’ve been *waiting* for this since I started on the web… in the mid-’90s! The promise is – finally – coming true!
I love WordPress. Thank’s for everyone whoever puts an effort in to it.
Many congratulations. The video is very professional and makes an useful introduction to the new version.
Yeah! 2.8 finally! Good job guys!
Damm we love WordPress, it’s the Best way to Blog
fantastic use of video to make a changelog understandable to non-technical users. great marketing, guys!
one thing. comparing dot versions of your software to jazz legends is embarrassing.
sweet video…very smooth! Can’t wait to test drive it!
I can’t wait until it goes into full public release!!
WordPress might be amazing, but it seems that 2.8 does not live up to its hype. It is giving errors all around and I’m only getting blank pages.
Very helpful features are included. I am definitely going to upgrade my previous version. Thanks.
Lets try newest wordpress! always love wordpress 🙂
Without giving it much thought I upgraded from latest 2.7. to 2.8 and have a disaster. At first the site came up looking like a column of links down the left hand side.
After several attempts I got the design web site. Went into Site Admin and have a dashboard which is a series of links down the left hand side, which are those I would have if I had the standard dashboard screen. Most of them don’t work and those that do just take me to a basic text location. The whole thing is a disaster. I am Europe and not home in Australia. I want to get back to 2.7.? but I didn’t back up anything.
It is so stupid putting out something as bad as this – refer to comments pouring in on various forums – and it has been released to cater for someones ego rather than the users. Someones ego must by no have taken a battering and his reputation in tatters. You have stuffed my site.
If anyone can give me an easy fix, that would be good. If not I’m finished with WordPress and looking elsewhere as I don’t have the time for this sort of rubbish release.
Just in case you want to know, i am angry.
Sorry to hear you’ve experienced a problem. Due to the huge number of different factors involved with a self-installations of WordPress (from plugins to third-party themes, to hosting), we highly recommend backing up your blog before upgrading. If you continue to have problems, I’d recommend submitting them to the friendly folks at the WordPress.org support forums who might be able to walk you through resolving your issue.
Nice additions, I just go to take a look at them. 🙂
Great, wordpress is really a very nice CMS.
Wow… wordpress is seriously the best!
Web developers’ ability to easily customize and extend WordPress makes it one of the most popular and powerful publishing platform. However every time a new WordPress version is released, developer’s should look at their customized solutions and accommodate changes.
W3Avenue has compiled a list of resources for WordPress developers that will help them quickly upgrade their themes or plugins to accommodate latest features.
yes! Perfomance… )
Very nice in wordpress 2.8! I will update now!
Very nice! I love WP 2.8 so much. Thanks a lot Guys.
Great 2.8 is now ready to GO.
I will soon upgrade to that 😉
Everything I could of asked for has been delivered. Thanks WP Developers!!!
Just upgraded and its looking good!
a video is great, but not all of us have super fast internet connection please also add a text description.
the upgrade went so smooth, love the new dashboard and template, plugin install remove features.. cheers
Woooo! WordPress rocks! Its my favorite.
Nice overview of the new WordPress and I am sure you have even more for us in the near future. I Love wordpress.
System froze solid. I had to reinstall by FTP instead. I won’t use the auto update again.
WordPress may be the bet blog software around, but is has a lot to learn when it comes to both installation and upgrade issues.
You shouldn’t have to basically destroy and rebuild your site just to upgrade it. Unless you’re basically a coder or can afford a coder, don’t bother running WordPress.
The new features are great and helpful, specially about plugin manager changes.
Its cool. Thanks.
good information 🙂
i am a wordpress.com user and i don’t have wordpress v. 2.8 yet….how can i get it? PLEASE HELP ME!
If you’re a WordPress.com user, you’ll always be running the latest version of WordPress, with some extra customization – we don’t use version numbers for the .com service, but because it’s taken care of for you, there’s no need to do your own upgrades.
Hey folks where can i get multiple sidebars like it is in this video? Is it plugin?
BTW Great platform and useful update. Thanks WordPress!
The number of sidebars used on your pages is usually dependent on the theme you are using. You might want to take a spin around the theme directory and see if you find something you like.
A big COOL from me too 🙂
Didn’t know about these videos, really will done…even watched it although 2.9 is already out 😉
Nice overview of the new WordPress, the new features are great and helpful, everything I could of asked for has been delivered Thanks.
