More intuitive interface

    I would love for the interface of the WordPress admin to be updated a little bit, so that it looks more modern as well as being more intuitive and flows better.

    Thanks

  2. Hi Ash

    Could you explain what you understand under more intuitive? Because if your goal is blogging I can't see a way to make it more easy - you just go to the Posts section add your new post, set it's category, tags, etc and that's most of it.

    About making it look modern - since this is the part of the site that most visitors don't even see, I just don't see why the developers should bother with that(of course they make changes to the look of the admin from time to time, so it's getting better with the time).

    To conclude it:

    • Making a CMS system intuitive is a very hard thing to do(there are different types of people - some will adapt easy, some not that much)
    • Making visual change to the Dashboard is something that plugins can do as well and is not that necessary.

    PP: Of course that's just my opinion :)

    I agree with a more simplistic interface.

    Look at a product like squarespace - it attracts lots of users based on it's ease of use. Easy on the eye, easy to design.

    Lots of things can be compacted and tided up. We could have lots more 'drag and drop'

    Make it more mac and less PC ;)

    Drag and Drop is tricky, since it doesn't work (well) for people with accessibility issues (or on mobile devices). But cleaning up the admin end is on the list :)

    I'd hope for drag and drop like this in terms of the dev side of things building sites

    For mobile devices, the app works well posting and such. Still it's nice to know cleaning up the admin side is on the list! :)

    You mean for themes? Unlikely given how the templating system works, but I'm sure there are some themes that let you drag and drop items.
