Bloggers know that a new version of WordPress has hit the streets. Code named Thelonius, in honor of the famous jazz Monk, WordPress 3.0 merges the single-user version of WordPress with the multi-user version. We here are LeapGo are looking forward to playing with it.
Why is this important?
We think WordPress 3.0 is significant for a number of reasons. For starters, it’s the first major revision of WordPress for several versions now. That means there is a lot to look forward to. From the WordPress codex, here are a few of the features offered through WordPress 3.0:
- Ability to manage multiple websites from one central installation
- A new theme, Twenty Ten, that illustrates WordPress’s new features
- Custom menus
- Custom header and background APIs
- Admin username and password set during installation
- Bulk theme updating
- Shortlinks support
- Custom post types and custom taxonomies
These are just a few of the new features offered by WordPress 3.0. We haven’t played with this enough to give you a review of the features, but we are looking forward to using the new WordPress. What I will say is if you are a blogger or planning to start a blog for your business then WordPress 3.0 promises to provide you with greater benefit than ever before. Now is the perfect time to start a business blog.
