The UVM Community UVM Blogs

WordPress 3.1

With the upgrade of UVM Blogs to WordPress 3.1, you’ll notice several changes that are aimed at making blogging even easier than before.

New Admin Bar

WordPress sports an attractive new admin bar at the top of the screen with direct links to frequently-used actions.

Note that several options may be in slightly different places from the old admin bar.

Links Between Posts

With a long overdue addition, it is now much easier to create links between posts and pages on your site.  When editing a post, select the text that you would like to turn into a link, click the chain link icon, and expand the bottom of the “Insert/edit link” window to see a list of pages and posts to choose from.

Theme Selection

When you are choosing a theme for your site, it is now possible to filter the available themes by their features.  Simply click the “Feature Filter” option on the Manage Themes page.

If you can’t find a theme that meets your needs, talk with the CTL or SAA groups and we’ll see what we can do.

Less Clutter

Many lesser-used post options are now hidden by default, making for a less confusing blogging experience.  If you need these options back, you can turn them on from the Screen Options control in the upper right corner of the edit screen.
