Godaddy finally rolled out the patch for WordPress 2.7 so I’ve been busy making upgrades to all of my websites. So far I am impressed with the changes the WordPress gurus have incorporated into this version.
The new Dashboard is great. Granted it took a few hours to figure out where everything is located but I love the new menu layout down the side. Having the ability to install plugins directly from the website without going through a download, unzip, upload, activate procedure is also pretty dang nifty.
I am also taking the opportunity to install a common suite of plugins on all of my sites. One of the discoveries I made was the Multi-Level Navigation Plugin. I really like the look of the pull down menus…While I was at it, I built badges for each of my domains. They are a bit large but I like them.
I am also in the process of redefining North Carolina Mountain Dream and matching it with Virginia Mountain Dreams. I hope to turn both sites into resources for both myself and others who may be contemplating a move to the Blue Ridge Mountains. I will concentrate my attention on Watauga County, NC and Floyd County, Va to begin with and expand out from there.
Check back for updates…
