Just toying around with the new QuickPress feature on the WordPress 2.7 dashboard. Sweet! Am just getting used to all my links on the left. I love the new dashboard features, being able to move ’em around, hide ’em
Nice to see a few changes to the media uploader (looks like defaults match the way I work for images). I would still like to be able to admin comments right from the dashboard.
One minor minor oddity- why does the top link to “visit site” not open in new tab/window? I hate blasting out my editing interface.
And I am already eager for the first built on 2.7.1 upgrade to see how the updater works.
Update: Interface quirk IMHO for QuickPress is that the feedback on clicking the “Publish” button is way to subtle. I saw no browser spin, and thought I mis-clicked, so I clicked the button again, and then only noticed the little gray swirlie progress indicator in the title pane of the QuickPress “pod”, so I ended up publishing twice. The “Publish” button ought to change somehow to indicate it is in progress.
