WordPress 3.4 has just released today and this is my second post since the update, or the first ‘non-Project360′ post under the latest version of WordPress. I’ve been anticipating this update because it introduces a few noteworthy features that I think I’m going to use a lot. In this post I’ll mention two of them, which is the HTML support in image caption (notice the link in the caption above) and better theme customization called “Live Preview” that I’m going to explain in details.
The above image shows the snapshot of image upload dialog in the post-writing end. With this users will not only be able to add links to caption (instead of linking the image only as in the previous versions) but also manipulating the caption using any supported HTML tags. I’m not sure how many tags are supported but for now I only need the links to work.
Then we have the “Live Theme Preview”, a new kind of built-in theme customization that would enable the users to test-drive the customizations before committing any changes. Of course it’s nowhere near the Blogger’s (Blogspot) superior WYSIWYG theme editor but according to WordPress team they’re heading there. I’m waiting for the day I no longer need to peek into the template files and the style.css anymore.
So that’s more less made today’s non-Project360 post. You’re asking where’s Medaka Box ep. 11 review? Sorry but I’ll combine it with the next episode because I found the episode 11 less interesting and there wasn’t any moment worth taking a snapshot at all. Sorry to disappoint.
