Menus on wheels

Flyout menus used to only show up when the menu was collapsed, but this has been modified in the latest version. Flyouts are now available in the whole menu as well, saving you a mouse click.

Flyout Menus

¬†This feature was disliked by several residents of the neighborhood. We observed some of the problems users may encounter with this menu while conversing with @Otto42 during WordCamp Louisville. This is a fantastic feature for the vast majority of people. However, some of us have numerous items open in one tab (for example our settings tab). There are numerous unique plugins that we have installed. In that sense, our flyout menu uses the entire height of the screen. With Aaron D. Campbell’s plugin called Expanded Admin Menus, you can vertically expand and collapse menu items if you’re one of those people who likes to do so.

Revamped Admin Bar

Additionally, the new admin bar is much more user-friendly and responsive. It has on-hover dropdown menus, which again prevents needless clicks. Additionally, the menu has been reorganized to make it much simpler to discover what you’re searching for. Additionally, a few things have been added, with the WordPress emblem on the left side of the bar being the most noticeable. The Codex and the Support Forums are two of the many important resources that may be found by clicking this icon.

Admin Bar

In the past, unchecking a box in your user’s profile page allowed you to disable the admin bar while viewing the dashboard. That option has been permanently deleted in WordPress 3.3. The Howdy area and admin bar were combined by the core team in order to save vertical space and improve functionality. We genuinely adore this new admin bar layout. It has an attractive simplicity.

 

Increased Media Upload Efficiency

The new drag and drop media uploader is one of the best new features coming in WordPress 3.3. Drag files from your desktop and drop them directly into the installation has been made exceedingly simple by the WordPress team. In addition, they took all the “add media” buttons and consolidated them into one to simplify and tidy up the interface. Silverlight and HTML5 are both supported by the new uploader.

Issue with Permalinks and Performance

You’ve probably noticed websites referencing WordPress’s SEO Friendly URL structure all over the internet. The majority of those articles either use the basic formula % postname % or the more complex formula % category % % postname %. In actuality, if your site has a LOT of pages, these permalink rules could create major performance concerns prior to 3.2.1. Heck, this compelled @chriscoyier to modify the permalink structure of his entire website. Many users are using this permalink structure, thus we need to identify the problem and permanently repair it, according to Andrew Nacin (@nacin). And lo, this has been FIXED! The core team of WordPress made the decision to add Post name as one of the proposed permalink options in version 3.3.
