Since WordPress 2.8 was just released yesterday, I thought it might be a good idea for this week’s issue of WordPress Weekend Resources to focus specifically on 2.8-related content.
WordPress Version 2.8 – The WordPress 2.8 page over at the Codex. The page is broken up into 4 parts: highlights, new features, advanced features, and features that did not make it. Definitely worth skimming through to get an idea of all that was added.
WordPress 2.8: What’s new – An extensive post on what’s new in WordPress 2.8, mostly from a developer’s point of view. Things like the new body_class function, proxy support, and relational navigation links, among other new features are all covered on this article.
WordPress 2.8 And 10 Things That You Should Know Before/After You Upgrade – This post goes over 2 things to go over before upgrading, and 8 things you should be aware of after upgrading. Aside from the obvious theme/plugin compatibility check, it also goes over a number of the updated features present in 2.8, complete with screenshots.
There are a few more in-depth articles on specific WordPress 2.8 features, although the above are mostly roundups. If you know of any other WordPress 2.8-related resources, feel free to post in the comments.
Looking for web hosting?
Question: What's the best type of web hosting?
Answer: The kind you don't have to worry about.
And that's precisely why I recommend HostGator. I've been using them myself for years and they've been nothing short of superb.
Fast load times, great support, WordPress-friendly, and good prices. Not much more you can ask for.
New customers can get 25% off of any HostGator web hosting package with the coupon: themelab25percentoffNote: I am a HostGator affiliate, but that doesn't make my recommendation any less genuine.
