    Takes a little getting used to, but I think it’s ok… was surprised by it last night (forgot about the announcement it was going to change.) It’s clean 🙂

    It’s going to take some time….

    But love it!!

  4. December 5, 2008 5:53 am

    Its different… its kinda kool
    It was like bam! I like how you can arrange things to be what you want to see 🙂

  5. December 5, 2008 6:39 am

    I think I like it. Except I spent a full minute trying to find the ‘view your site’ button.

    dang it.

  6. December 5, 2008 6:49 am

    Lovin’ it… I love free upgrades.

  7. December 5, 2008 7:34 am

    I like it. I don’t have to navigate to different pages, all the info I am interested in is on the front(?) page.

  8. December 5, 2008 7:39 am

    Kim – you’re not alone!!! 🙂

    You can re-arrange it???

    So much to learrrnnnn….


  9. December 5, 2008 7:47 am

    They haven’t finished the full release for blogs like mine, so I’m still on 2.6 😦

  10. December 5, 2008 7:49 am

    yah. huh? you can rearrange it?



    and the “view site” thingy is now just our blog name right?

    or am i missin that too.

    old dog. new tricks. dang.

  11. December 5, 2008 8:07 am

    LOL yes… tam that’s right

    And the lil blue strip where the name of whatever section you’re viewing… put your mouse over that and you’ll see the cross arrow… just click and hold and then drag it to where you want it to go…
    Sorry I like playing around with new things and just kinda figured it out 🙂

  12. December 5, 2008 8:25 am

    So far so good…..haven’t had alot of time to thoroughly investigate it yet!

    ashley, youre gonna laugh…but, huh? little blue strip?

    i know. it takes me forever to get things 😕

  15. December 5, 2008 8:29 am

    never mind. my strips are gray. i was lookin for blue.

    got it!


  16. December 5, 2008 8:32 am

    You can move things?

    I just got used to the old one.

    What can I say? I’m a stick-in-the-mud. 😳

    I like it…Played with it for a couple minutes…Now I gotta get back to work!

  18. December 5, 2008 10:28 am

    I like it..i guess..but I still haven’t found “view your site” button…dang..I am seriously feeling dumb about now…it really is classic !

    Now that I know all the answers, they go and change the questions!

  19. December 5, 2008 10:34 am

    yes… we like! looks more streamlined and clean. i still can’t find the visit site button though! i’ll keep searching…

  20. December 5, 2008 11:31 am

    brandi, just click on your site name…

  21. December 5, 2008 11:32 am

    click on your blog name. its above the new dashboard box on the upper left. if you hover over your name there you will see “visit site” pop up.

  22. December 5, 2008 11:32 am

    yup. what she said!


    hey, lece!

  23. December 5, 2008 11:36 am

    hi friend!

  24. December 5, 2008 11:43 am

    Not sure yet. It gave me a headache last night and I’ve not been back since. 😯

  25. December 5, 2008 12:40 pm

    like it.

  26. December 5, 2008 2:09 pm

    not yet….It’s taking me twice as long to do the same thing. Notice I dont’ have a blog post up yet in 2 days – URG!

  27. December 5, 2008 6:29 pm

    Uh they updated with 2.6.5? I just ran the security patch. The dashboard doesn’t look different to me.

    NO. I don’t like it when people mess things up that took me seven months to figure out in the first place. And besides, they didn’t give me the “theme” that I wanted. So that’s out. And the worst part about 2.7 is…my avatar now looks like a kissing fish.

    Yeah. On my own blog even.

    And people say I “ain’t right…?!?!?!”

    Oh. Great. Tam just turned me into some sort of purple flower.

  30. December 5, 2008 8:46 pm

    nor, you look very pretty tonight 😉

  31. December 5, 2008 9:50 pm

    HA! they added “visit site” to the dashboard!

    way to go WP!

  32. December 5, 2008 9:53 pm

    I’m starting to get used to it. Once I learn where everything is, I’ll love it just as much as I loved the old one.

    If Michelle is a stick in the mud, then I’m a spider dancing on the surface of the sun.

    And I’m not a spider. I’m some sort of purple flower.

    But at least I “look pretty tonight.”

    Hmph! “twisted.”

    Dag. Make that 😈

    (It’s hard being some sort of purple flower. You can’t type too well.)

  36. December 5, 2008 10:38 pm

    being a purple flower AND twisted – just dont mix.

  37. December 5, 2008 10:42 pm

    I live in blogger land… I feel so small and out of place in this great WordPress universe.

    Take me to your leader.

  38. December 5, 2008 10:45 pm

    you should totally switch to wordpress gitz. seriously. lots of extras!

  39. December 6, 2008 1:29 pm

    I’m so confused….. now my OCD is REALLY messed up!!

  40. December 8, 2008 12:04 am

    I didn’t know they were doing something new so I just popped over.

    Yeah, it definitely looks better visually. Less messy and visually difficult to wade through. Haven’t tried to navigate my way around yet, so I don’t know how that will be.
