UVM Blogs (blog.uvm.edu) has been upgraded to the latest version of WordPress. Some highlights:
- The media manager has been overhauled and is much, much better and easier to use. Want to add a bunch of images to a post? Just drag them all at once from your hard drive into the media manager and tell it to include them. Want to include multiple photo galleries in a post? Just choose which images you want, and sort them however you want by dragging and dropping.
- You can now embed content from SoundCloud, SlideShare, and Instagram, just like you already could with a number of video and photo sharing sites in the past. Simply copy the URL for the page with your content onto a line by itself, and WordPress will figure out how to embed it for you.
- New sites no longer have a Links section, since few people keep a blogroll anymore.
- A couple preferences have moved to different screens than before. However, I think they’ve moved to more intuitive places anyway, so with luck you won’t even notice.
If you encounter problems or have questions, just let SAA know and we’ll see what we can do.
