With all the recent traveling its been a few days since I had last synced my SVN wordpress install. I was pleasantly surprised to see some of the new features.

2 in particular caught my eye.

Quickedit function– Within your admin panel under your posts there is now a option for quickedit:

If you click this it pops up a box with all the little stuff you can edit on your post:

Reply to comments from admin

The other cool new feature was the ability to reply to comments directly from your administration panel:

Nice little Ajax box pops up:

Looking good!

  1. Looks great, and I can’t wait until they release the version. Don’t you think it’s risky to use “beta” versions of wordpress? 🙂

    1. I never install beta versions or even first releases. Because it’s a hassle to upgrade and there is almost always surely a newer patch within a few days of a new release.

      1. It appears that Shoemoney is using the SVN version (i.e. bleeding edge, which isn’t even beta…it’s pre-pre-beta LOL).

        As for the release, that’s currently set for some time in November 2008, but that’s if all things go well.


        1. But this beta version is still great, even in it’s testing phase. I’m looking forward to the release of the complete version.

        2. Thanks, I was wondering how Shoemoney got the update early. It’s amazing how fast WordPress has been in releasing updatews. They’ve been doing a fantastic job at it!

  2. Hi Jeremy! Where did you get WP 2.7 version?
    Usually WP notices when you have to update – I’ve got 2.6.2 version and still no announcement.
    Thanx for comments anyways – it looks WP 2.7 will little bit more comprehensive!

  3. Indeed, the quick-edit function is very handy. I’m using the extended-admin plugin, does basically the same thing.

    1. I tried extended admin for a little while but I found a few little bugs and annoyances that kept me away. Hopefully wordpress will implement the feature flawlessly.

    2. I too look forward to this feature. I spend alot of time editing and anything that can help me save time makes me smile!

  4. Even as a small time blogger those features are going to save me time. Now where did I put that autoupdate plugin…..

    1. Whenever you can save time the better. It is the rule of delegation. You don’t have to do everything….you just have to find people to do everything for you

  5. WordPress continues to please us with new updates. This is a good thing. I love the stability and tradition. -))))))))

    1. Yeah it’s hard to find software that is constantly under development these days. A lot of programs I use have been stagnant for years now.

  6. It’s nice to see some really user-helpful features popping up for this next update. Reply to comments from the admin panel is very cool!

  7. Wow, new WordPress! Impressive new feature, can’t wait for it to launch…! Hopefully this time it won’t mess up during upgrade.

    1. I definitely recommend the WordPress Auto-updater plugin. Huge time saver, gives the option to automatically backup and download all databases, and makes the whole process very smooth… about a 10 minute process (for me anyway) from start to finish.

  8. Those are some good little additions…. I wish they’d add the time a post is supposed to publish on that Manage page, would make scheduling a tad easier.

  9. I already use plugins that do this stuff for me. So not too excited about the new version. Just means another upgrade I’ll have to do and possibly encounter problems with my blog.

    1. Hehehe! Yup I know what you mean about “encountering a problem” with your blog with this new version. That’s because new versions scrap out certain functions of the previous version. It happens a lot with Frameworks version updates. 😉

    2. On the bright side, it means that you won’t need to worry about upgrading the plugins or those plugins breaking future versions of WordPress. It may be a little hassle now, but in the long run, it can mean fewer. 😉

    1. I know it is simply amazing. WordPress is really getting better and better. Heaps improvement in 2.6!

      I am excited.

  10. Thanks for the previews and the screenshots, Shoe! Now you have me interested in subversion. Definitely drooling over the 2.7.

  11. I like the ability to respond to comments within your admin panel. Nice little timesaver and good update overall.

  12. The reply in admin panel I’ve had for quite awhile, via plugin. That is a huge time saver, and glad to see that it’s native to WP in the new version.

    I’d like to see a few other features I use plug-ins for become integrated, like some of the search features provided by yoast.com (great plugins by the way) where search results are highlighted, search suggest, etc.

  13. I guess, I get to act surprised next week at WordCamp; when they give the WordPress 2.7 presentation.

    Thanks to Shoe, I know most of the new features already 🙂

  14. Jeremy… i just LOVE WP …
    Excellent team of developers… we use it as a CMS for all our websites and for the clients as well ..

  15. thats pretty sweet… i need to look into how you are updating wp because doing it manually sucks.

  16. I love the new reply from the dashboard feature! That is a big time saver for blogs with a ton of comments!

  17. I can’t wait for that update to come out….granted I have 9 sites I’ll have to update, I’m cool with that, that comment feature looks bad ass and I can’t wait to have that availability inside my admin panel.

    Thanks for the heads up….

  18. I love quick edit. And I’ve had the reply to comments from admin panel with a plugin for a while now and it is so awesome.

  19. Jeremy,

    Thank you for spending some time with me after BlogWorld Expo 2008 and the interview you provided after the SuperPanel with John Chow.

    I placed some BWE08 group photos of you and John Chow here:


    Your words of encouragement were thought provoking, and I will remember your kindness by sponsoring a worthy affiliate for #BWE2009, where I will share my success story with you.

    Respectfully, Nicholas – ‘the video guy’ at BlogWorld Expo 2008

  20. Sick and slick. Gotta play with it over the weekend. I wonder how many new bugs are out there.

  21. These features just keep getting better and better. Can’t wait for 2.7 to come out, looks like it is a lot more streamlined and will be easier to use as well.

    1. You wish to upgrade the blog without 2.7 coming out already? Check again, its not out yet. lol

  22. the only issue i see with all these features being added is the number of queries which will be required for display of each post … which might become an issue @ some point of time…

  23. […] ShoeMoney je testirao beta verziju novog WordPressa ( 2.7 ), i evo Å¡ta je njemu od novih funkcija zapalo za oko. WordPress sve viÅ¡e koristi AJAX kako bi nam olakÅ¡ao i ulepÅ¡ao blogovanje. […]

  24. Okay, I love those features. Can’t wait until this is finally released to the public.

  25. I’m still amazed that you’re running SVN nightly builds on a production site with as much traffic as yours… talk about bleeding edge. It’s almost as risky as the US banking / mortgage industry 😛

    WP 2.7 is looking rockingly good!

  26. This is an excellent post , I’m grateful to you , thanks a lot .

  27. I think the folks over at WordPress are doing a great job creating an easy to use interface for the everyday person to have a website that is great looking and sophisticated.

    I love what the Open Source movement has done for the industry and everyone that uses it. I like to see the positive feedback from you…right on.

  28. Thanks for the headup.
    Now it looks like I am going to have to upgrade all me blogs that I maintain, everyone will want the latest version after this post. 🙂

  29. Oh O.K. So this is just BETA, cause it said I was still up to date on my blog. I will get it when it comes out of BETA (I don’t trust BETA stuff).

  30. I would definitely upgrade to this version. I’m waiting for them launch this version officially.

  31. Hmm, maybe i am the only one, but i am so used to the admin section that i hate when they change it, or the bahavior..

    For weeks i always have to train myself to the new ways of working..

    Maybe i dont appreciate the changes as much as you guys do, for me wordpress does since 2.5 what it should, most of the new stuff is in my opinion more cosmetical changes…

  32. that looks great, albeit it’s easy to use but since it’s in beta, ill retain my self not to use it temporarily till every bugs fixed correctly

  33. i looked into it and i like it a lot but you know how the plugins act up after an upgrade…

  34. Cool features…i still would like to see some tweaks on the image insertion so it doesn’t take 10 clicks to insert a few thumbs on a post.

  35. Damn I just moved to blogger and then WP introduces some super cool features.

    Lets hope blogger does something really good now.

  36. It looks great! I will be switching from Blogger to WordPress soon. I recently found out that there is a way to make the same permalinks in WordPress as I had in Blogger so my search engine results won’t be affected. 😉

  37. Hi, outgoing posts there 🙂 through’s exchange for the intriguing word
