Bunch of questions about 2.0 (10 posts)

    Hello everyone

    I'm trying out 2.0 right now, and have to say I'm a little disapointed.

    I know this AJAX thing is very trendy and cool looking, but does it work with old browsers? - if not, is there a way to turn it all off?

    Can I change the default post status to publish?

    Can I add other tags to this new rich text things? Like the old quick-tag thingy?

    On the codex page - http://codex.wordpress.org/Version_1.6 - are the things listed actual promises for this coming version or suggestions? because I don't see a lot of things implemented. I really would have liked to see "Custom fields for users" and "A Complete User/Author Profile Page with his/her recent Posts or recent Actions."

    Not a question but a statement: I dont understand this new "New User Default Role" thing. Can a subscriber send drafts?

    So very lost. -- But at least most of my plugins are working.

    1. Ajax is very old technology, but which browsers ?

    2. Err.. I've not looked yet

    3. Not right now. You can still have the old quicktags though.

    Does not seem you can do this.

    Everything will gracefully degrade and still work when a browser does not support AJAX.

    These parts have to be realized by plugin authors. WP already provides everything to make all those happen.

    "Can I change the default post status to publish?"

    If you push the "publish" button it does just that. No need to change the default status.

    "Custom fields for users"

    It has been implemented on the backend, there's just no exposed UI by default.

    Many other things on that page are not going to be implemented, or will be in a future release.

    Another question:
    Why do I have to log in each time? Can't I stay logged in?
    Is this normal?

    thank you guys so much!

    Have you done something odd in your browser cookie setting? I stay always logged in....

    Didn't change anything since the last version.

    I'm using FF 1.5 beta 3, if that counts
