Internet Marketing Perspective: Should You Upgrade Your WordPress Blog to 2.5?
I just found the BEST, in-depth analysis on WordPress 2.5 vs. the prior version.
I kinda wish I read this before I upgraded. Â To be honest, it's a bit like XP vs. Vista. Â Hang with XP till you don't have a choice. Â Then buy a Mac. Â That's what I did.
It's not THAT drastic for the comparison. Â But I really liked the features of the prior WordPress. Â They've tried to simplify the interface. Â But in doing so, they've made it more clunky to me. Â I liked the expanded menus vs. the new simplified ones.
I assume they're try to make it seem less intimidating to the new user. Â I think there should be more control over what's displayed on the menus and how they're displayed.
You might disagree.
That's why I refer you to this great article:
The reason I upgraded is that I'm a sucker for the latest. Â And feel like upgrades are pretty much inevitable. Â So I don't fight them. Â I'm sure I'll get used to the new WordPress. Â But if I were you, I wouldn't be in any great rush to upgrade.
From an Internet marketing perspective, I believe they've made a few things better. The URL I referred you to above can probably give you a lot more detailed breakdowns on the implications for you as a marketer.
All that said, WordPress is still a fantastic tool for marketers. Â If you aren't using it for your blogging, I recommend it.
