2.5 Upgraded

Seems to be working just, but, the Inline more button is missing from the visual editor. Try it manually

 Did it work?

 Gotta replace the custom smileys plugin, since it appears all the way at the bottom of the write page, can’t move it.

FYI, some people may be thinking that the button they usually use for doing a blockquote is only available when the “Show/Hide Kitchen Sink” button (top row of visual editor, all the way to the right.) Nope. Next to the numbered list button is the blockquote button.

Yup, it worked.

The good: the ability to embed video’s without losing the formatting like with earlier WP. Can’t figure out the pictures thing, but, then, I mostly use Photobucket.

The ability to open in full page for editing. I like that.

For the most part, it is pretty much the same, in a slightly different format.

The bad. Cannot find the Files Editor module which had always been under the Manage tab. Trackbacks box way down the Write page. Categories down below the write box. I always liked that stuff on the side, and makes way more sense.

Otherwise, not much difference. I’ll take the better ability to embed video’s anyday.

PS: when embeding vid’s, you no longer use the embed code froms sites such as Youtube, Evil Google, etc, but, the URL. See the button that looks like a film strip? Use that.

    That noise was the sound of this post going by over my head. But then I am not a WP junkie…

    The point about the categories being on the bottom instead of the side is one of the most often mention things on the WP testers mail group. Look for a change, or a way to make a change, in 2.6 (if not in 2.5.1)

  3. Hmm, yeah, WP junkie would be about right 😉

    I hope they do that, Jim. And put the stuff back on the side.
