Wordpress Theme Designer – Patrick Sy
WordPress 3.0 is here
I’ve had the chance to play around with version 3.0 these past couple of days. So far my themes (from version 2.9.2) are working just fine, I have yet to read the change logs from the wordpress.org website -but one noticeable feature, which by the way is another awesome addition to wp, is the new “Menus“ tab under the Appearance menu -which allow users to create their own custom menu from existing wordpress links (pages and categories) or an internal/external link which the user can manually input. When you’re done customizing your menu, simply go and add it as a widget to your theme, it’s as simple as that.
Here’s a screenshot:
I used widget to add the menu on my sidebar, for obvious reasons, my themes currently don’t support the new Menus function of wordpress -it’s an awesome function nonetheless, one that I won’t mind adding on my themes seeing it’s usefulness.
This is a classic example of wordpress giving its users less reason to touch html codes, way to go WordPress!! I’m sold as always, although from a design point of view, I liked the default admin color scheme better at 2.9.
