As more and more people are upgrading to the latest release of WordPress 2.5, the number of rants and complaints is increasing steadily. I am sure the developers have worked hard to make the administration section of the new release as user-friendly as possible, but there are some shortcomings which should definitely be addressed in further releases of WordPress.
Here are three things about WordPress 2.5 that have really put me off :-
1. First of all, I don’t understand the need of including an “add” button with the tags. The old method of specifying all the tags just separated by a comma was far less time consuming and you did not have to press an extra button every time you wanted to add a tag.
2. Adding categories is the worst of all. First you scroll down to the categories section (which were very accessible in the earlier version always being on the right side), then you click on “Add New Category”, write the category name and finally click on the add button. I really hate this part as they have increased the total number of steps to add a category for your posts.
3. In WordPress 2.3, all the other features (comments and pings, password protect etc.) floated right of your post which made them very much accessible. I am sorry to say but this is not the case with the latest version of WordPress.
I am sure many of you also feel the same way about the latest 2.5 release. You are welcome to vote below and let the developers of WordPress know about your feelings.
