WordPress as a blog and website.

The best of both worlds. Out of the box WordPress lets users create website pages, and posts. It is extremely commonplace now to have a corporate blog running besides a corporate website. Multiple permission levels and the easy nature of publishing make WordPress ideal for any manner of websites.

Why you should update to WordPress 3.5

The new version of WordPress, named “Elvin” was just released and it come with major updates.

1. REVAMPED MEDIA LIBRARY

The new Manager makes it easier and feaster to view and organize the images and files stored in the CMS. It shows thumbnails of each image, and loads older images as you scroll down. In addition, it has a side-pane for entering information such as Alternate text and Caption for your images. All images, audio and videos are listed in a grid/gallery format. The right panel allows you to change details such as title, caption, alt text, link, description, alignment and size. The major difference is that multiple items can now be selected. This allows you to insert multiple items into your articles at the click of a button. The old method required you to insert each media item into your articles one by one. Very cool addition.

2. NEW DEFAULT RESPONSIVE THEME

WordPress 3.5 comes with Twenty Twelve as its default theme. Twenty Twelve is a brand new responsive theme that looks great on iPads, iPhones, Desktops, and any other device and resolution. In sum, the theme is clean, responsive and has already gained a good deal of popularity among the users.

3. RETINA DISPLAY

The new Dashboard is now all prepared for high resolution screens. No matter what device you are using: iPhone 5, iPad, Kindle Fire HD, Nexus 10, or Macbook Pro — your WP Dashboard will look great.

In addition:

  • 1. Multisite Improvements and External Libraries
  • Color Pickers and Accessibility

     

     

 

 

WordPress powers now almost 25% of U.S websites

Last year the tech blog Techchrunch described the significant growth of the wordpress usage in the U.S for for blogs and websites. By the end of 2011, WordPress was powering ” 14.7% of the top million websites in the world, up from 8.5%. And 22 out of every 100 new active domains in the US are running WordPress.”

Today, WordPress is powering just over 26.9% of blogging services sites and 25% of all websites in the U.S.  Why is that? One reason WordPress is so popular is that it not only allows you to easily create out your own blog, but the CMS can also be used to run anything from a forum to full scale eCommerce store. The time of development is usually significantly less than the required for Drupal or even Joomla.

It is also the platform of choice for new portals and some of the biggest names in US media have WordPress running under the hood.

WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg revealed that each month, 287 million people account for 2.5 billion pageviews on WordPress.com blogs.
