  12. 12. Post Formats http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Formats • aside - Typically styled without a title. • gallery - A gallery of images. Post will likely contain a gallery shortcode and will have image attachments. • link - A link to another site. • image - A single image. The first <img /> tag in the post could be considered the image. • quote - A quotation. Probably will contain a blockquote holding the quote content. • status - A short status update, similar to a Twitter status update. • video - A single video. • audio - An audio file. Could be used for Podcasting. • chat - A chat transcript.
  13. 13. Post Formats-Aside From the WordPress Forums: A “status” is going to be a short status update, usually limited to 140 characters. An “aside” is going to be a short blog post, typically without a title.
  14. 14. Post Formats—Aside Title shows up when you visit the permalink.
  15. 15. Post Formats-Gallery As seen from index.php Links to other galleries
  16. 16. Gallery Post Single View Note this is different from the Gallery function, which creates a block of square thumbnails (though you could insert one of those into a gallery post).
  17. 17. Internal Linking Just click on the link icon to activate this, then select the page or post you want to link to. (Remember to select anchor text or image first.)
  18. 18. Categories-Sortable! Sort by Name, Description, Slug, or number of posts in the category.
  19. 19. Tags-Sortable! Sort by Name, Description, Slug, or number of posts with that tag.
  20. 20. Media Library-Sortable! Sort by Filename, Author, Attached to, or Date.

  26. 26. Themes (Site View in Network)
  27. 27. Widgets Nothing new here that I noticed.
  28. 28. Menus No apparent changes from WordPress 3.0
  29. 29. Plugins (Site) From here you can activate plugins for this site only.
  30. 30. Users (Site)
  31. 31. Add New Site User
  32. 32. Tools This hasn’t changed for aeons.
  33. 33. Import The import list has gotten shorter. What’s become of Textpattern, GreyMatter, and DotClear?
  34. 34. Export Export is now more sophisticated. You can export only posts, only pages, or all content including menus and custom content types.
  35. 35. Site Settings: General Nothing to see here, folks; move along.
  36. 36. Site Settings: Writing •New section for “Default Post Format” •No post by e-mail option. (I never could get that to work.)
  37. 37. Site Settings: Reading Same as in WordPress 3.0 and earlier.
  38. 38. Site Settings: Discussion Comment settings are the same as in earlier versions of WordPress.
  39. 39. Site Settings: Avatars There’s a new avatar option, Retro. (From the style of video games before Matt Mullenweg was born.)
  40. 40. Site Settings: Media The only change is the phrasing of the auto-embeds checkbox.
  41. 41. Site Settings: Privacy It’s good to hide test sites and dev sites from search engines, but remember to change this setting when you go live. (Oh—no changes from WordPress 3.0.)
  42. 42. Site Settings: Permalinks This is still the same. We’ll probably have to wait a few versions before there’s any built-in UI for permalinks for custom post types or custom taxonomies.
  43. 43. The moment you’ve been waiting for NETWORK 3.1
  44. 44. New Network Admin After you activate the network (follow the same directions as for WordPress 3.0), you’ll find the link to the new Network Admin section in the top right corner of your screen.
  45. 45. Network Dashboard Quick Sites Button New “Right Now” New Menu
  46. 46. Network: Sites Guess what? These are sortable, too, by Path, Last Updated, and Registered. That’s the main difference from WordPress 3.0.
  47. 47. Network: Add New Site Because this copy of WordPress is installed locally in a directory, new sites can only be installed in subdirectories. This was the same in WP 3.0.
  48. 48. Network: Users Sort by Username, Name, E-mail, or date Registered. A Super Admin is someone with authority to change the network, not just one site. Sorting is new since WordPress 3.0.
  49. 49. Add Network User
  50. 50. Network Themes You must enable a theme on the network for it to be available to individual sites. Layout is different from 3.0; function is the same.
  51. 51. Network Install Themes This works just the same as for the single install, and is very similar to WP 3.0 except in its placement.
  52. 52. Network Plugins Note you “network activate” plugins here (for all sites) and can edit and delete them.
  53. 53. Add New Plugins When you activate the network, this moves over to network admin. It looks the same as in WP 3.0.
  54. 54. Network Settings Looks the same as in WP 3.0.
  55. 55. Network Setup
  56. 56. Update Once the network is activated, this moves into the Network Admin section. In single installs, it’s under Dashboard in the Site Admin section, same as in WordPress 3.0. The update engine itself appears to be the same as in WordPress 3.0.
  57. 57. Network Updates This panel is now located just below “Updates” in the Network Admin section, which is a much more logical place for it. (You used to have to find “Updates” in the Dashboard menu, then WordPress 3.0 locate “Network Updates” in the Super Admin menu.) WordPress 3.1
  58. 58. My Sites This panel takes the place of “Updates” in the Site Admin menu once the network is activated in WordPress 3.1.
  59. 59. Thanks Everyone for a Great Meetup! Sallie Goetsch sallie@eastbaywp.com
