blogs.cofc.edu now runs WordPress 2.7
The next time you log into your WordPress blog, things will look quite a bit different. We’ve applied WordPress 2.7 to blogs.cofc.edu, which enables a far greater array of themes and features, especially down the road. WordPress 2.7 also brings about significant changes in the design of the administration panel. Fortunately, the mechanics are very much the same.
First, your dashboard will be far more useful. You can now see pending comments, site announcements, and much more right within the dashboard.
Your posting tools are now located in a sidebar along the left rather than in tabs on top like before. This left sidebar does a better job of grouping related tools than previous versions of WordPress, making posting and other tools easier to find.
