2.7 User Interface UGGH! (37 posts)

    Here's a kookie idea: How about you make the items at the left so that they can be dragged to a band across the top if the user so chooses? The other dashboard elements are already draggable to wherever you want them to be, why not let these be as well?

    I don't think it's the fact of Change itself that's upsetting some folks, it's that the change has been made to be more aesthetically pleasing (with great success, by the way) but at the expense of functionality. Some things that used to be done in 1 click now take several. In terms of design, that's a step backward.

    However, I maintain that a good compromise is simply in allowing the user to drag *anything* around, including putting the left side items up top if they prefer. Choice is never a bad thing.

    If 2.6 was a step back in usability then 2.7 is running backwards and town the hill to collect the award for "The Most Useless and Crappiest Admin Interface EVER"!

    Bravo!

    Thank you! I am more than disappointed :(

    If WP UI guys can not figure out how a useful and intuitive UI's look and work, please copy it from some other software.

    2.7 UI is a bad joke! (yes, it looks all pretty but it is not functional!

    BTW, drag and drop some crap around your screen is NOT "good usability"!

    Wow, the amount of hate for the new UI...

    I have to admit UI 2.7 is a welcomed breath of fresh air for me. At last, a real UI that looks great and actually makes sense! The previous UIs look oh, so dated... UI 2.6 was a pain to use. I also love the Quick Edit feature. I have the feeling that at last the developers have some heavyweights among their midst to help take WP to the next level.

    I welcome the direction WP is taking and hope for more (not less, sorry to those who do not like changes) user friendly features that make site creation and maintenance easier.

    One of which is: get rid of the login/register screen and make them available right on the front page (I know there are plugins available but what a pain everytime we get a new release) -- and please no dashboard/site admin for readers who subscribe to the site.
