WordPress 3.0

It’s been a while since I posted anything, due to various other commitments, so I’ll ease myself back in slowly with a short, not particularly SEO related post.

WordPress 3.0 is out and has a number of nice new features – I’ve upgraded 2 websites automatically (one from 2.91, one from 2.92 on different hosts) without any problems so far. It’s worth checking out the official blog entry and the video below about v3 from WordPress:

To summarise some of the new key features:

  • multiple site functionality added (WordPress MU has been merged)
  • big improvements to menus, custom post types & taxonomies exposed via new APIs – this makes WordPress a more serious CMS contender, no longer just a fancy blogging engine
  • there’s a new default theme called ‘Twenty Ten’ with some nice artwork out of the box
  • lots of bug fixes
  • upgrades (to themes, plugins, etc) all bundled together
  • generate short URLs automatically
  • a new slightly lighter looking admin area

If you already have an existing blog, it’s worth upgrading for the bug fixes and upgrades, but you’ll really stand to gain most from the custom post types (for example, it can now handle products) and multi-site features if you’re starting afresh. So if you’ve been meaning to start blogging for a while, now’s a good time to go for it…
