WordPress 3.8 “Parker” is here to welcome 2014

WordPress 3.8 “Parker” is designed to be modernize in every aspect from dashboard structure,font type to superior contrast.

The dashboard is well organised so that we could easily find the stuff we need. And thanks to Open Sans,the open source font type, texts now could be showing much nicer in both desktop and mobile devices. Adding with the refined contrast,the new WordPress just brings us more reading pressure and simplicity.


WordPress is now for every device.By ditching the pixels,page loads significantly faster too. So editing posts in mobile devices or tablets will be the same as what you make it on your desktop.

BlogRush

If you have sharp eyes,you will find that I add a new item in my sidebar.It is a widget provided by BlogRush and can syndicate a blog network.

the widget in my sidebar

Depending on the words saying at its website,it’s as follow:

BlogRush is a “Cooperative Syndication Network.” It’s a network of blogs that run a small “widget” on their pages. Each time this widget is loaded it will contain 5 clickable headlines which are the blog post titles to other users’ posts. Clicking on any of these links will open a new browser window and load the blog and full post. Users earn “syndication credits” based on each time their blog loads the widget as well as each time any of their referrals (users that signup after clicking the “add your blog posts” link on the widget) loads the widget. They also earn additional credit based on all the activity through 10 generations of referrals. 1 Syndication Credit = having one of their recent blog post titles served inside the widget on another member’s blog.
