Library 2.0 : Weblogs : Wordpress


Published on

WordPress 2.7 is a work in progress. These
wireframes attempt to document the current state of or plans for the application. In some cases, elements may change as development proceeds, either because of technical issues or to address usability
issues. In addition, elements may change during the visual design stage. These wireframes are a guide for development that will be updated as necessary, and are not set in stone.

2.7 will use a fluid design, rather than the fixed-width of 2.5. The wireframes are scaled to represent an actual browser window at 1024x768 resolution.
