We took a moment to install and test the new beta of WordPress 3.6.
The first thing that you notice is the new theme, twentythirteen. Colors - nice! What an improvement over the previous gray, drab theme. That being said, it's still a basic template that you'll probably see the ad-farm websites that seem to infest the internet these days.
We also looked at the editor for content versions, which allows you to record and analyse various versions of a post. One would think this is a standard feature of any content management system, but's its been slow to implement, and still doesn't exist in Joomla. Now, in WordPress 3.6, you can compare different versions of your posts.
Unfortunately, there is still no easy way to enable this feature without editing code, which remains the key drawback in WordPress. If you want all these great featues, you have to open up your configuration file, wp-config.php, and add the following line towards the bottom.
Our Moolah Plugin
Finally, we wanted to make sure that everything was working normally with our own plugin, so we did a search for the plugin and installed it. Luckily nothing changed here - everything installed fine.Add a comment
