7 Reasons Why I Like WordPress.com Hosting

WordPress.com is not only a great place to start blogging but it may even be your last stop. When you self host a WordPress.org install you are on your own. Managing your own install isn’t a cake walk. The learning curve is steep and takes lots of time – time you won’t be spending on content creation. I’ve been there, done that and returned.

WordPress Fly Out Menus Coming Soon

WordPress 3.3 Beta 2 has been released  and that means more changes to WordPress user dashboards are coming soon. Expand and collapse menus will be replaced by fly out menus.

Update! They have arrived.  Drag & Drop Media Uploader & Flyout Dashboard Menus

expanded menucollapsed menuCurrently we can have our left dashboard menu sections simultaneously expanded in as many sections as we wish. (See the image on the far left. )

That ability to leave the menu sections I used frequently expanded allowed for ease of navigation back and forth and it’s the way I’ve been operating.  That  won’t be possible with flyout menus.

The sub-menu items still appear when you click the main item but in another box. (see the last image).

Only the active menu item opens up to reveal the sub-item and we will not be able to have more than one sub-menu open at a time.

I love the flyout menus when a menu is collapsed. However, I hate that I can’t have multiple menus expanded at once. It makes working in the admin extremely slow. That’s really my only gripe. — Justin Tadlock

The issue for some will be that the option to keep menu items of our choice open will disappear. I’m preparing in advance by operating with only one sub-menu item at a time and I’m not liking it.  See also: Admin menu doesn’t expand/collapse in 3.3 beta 1. Why? (78 posts)
