WordPress geeks are always excited about the features a new version brings in. WordPress 2.9 is one of the same sort. Its pretty much giving the feel of another step toward perfectness.
Changes Which are coming in WordPress 2.9 for betterment
- Image Editor : Cropping, Resizing and Editing the Image will be easier and only clicks away.
- Post Trash Can: Next time don’t panic if you have mistakenly deleted a post now there’s a Trash Can for the rescue.
- Embedding Videos and Images with oEmbed : oEmbed gives a faster way to insert images and videos like if you want to insert a flickr album in your post you can write the direct url “
http://www.flickr.com/photos/*” or for video from vimeo “
http://www.vimeo.com/groups/*/*” . Read more about oEmbed here
- Tackling Duplicate Content With rel=‚”canonical”: Google guidelines are followed for tackling with dulpicate content
- Automatic Database Repairing : wp-config.php file as follows: define(‚”WP_ALLOW_REPAIR‚”, true);. This simple code in config file will take care of database unnecessary inflation.
- Ability to get the thumbnail image for any post using a function: Custom fields and post thumbnail plugins are gonna be gone when the new WordPress version 2.9 is gonna come.
- Ability to create custom post types.
- Ability to add additional metadata for comments and posts.
