Our blog software has been updated from 2.6.5 to 2.8.2. You will notice the completely redesigned (and completely customizable) Dashboard when you log in. (For more information and a tutorial on how to use the new Dashboard,see my previous post.)
I’ve also added some handy new plugins:
The Flickr widget allows you to show photos from your Flickr account in your blog sidebar.
More Privacy Options lets you customize the level of privacy of your entire blog. You can now limit access to only logged-in Smith users,or you can limit it to a specific group of people whom you select. This will allow us to use WordPress for course blogs which are visible to course members only.
My Page Order lets you set the order in which pages appear in the page list widget. Under Pages,you’ll see an additional menu item that lets you easily drag your page list to reorder it.
