    I would just like to say that I really like the new Admin Interface of WordPress 3.2!

    I like it as well, except for the strange font changes.

    I like it too, but some things don't work:

    • Tiny MCE links
    • fullscreen editing

    WebKit 534.30 (branches/chromium/742@89068)

    Command Line /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome --flag-switches-begin --flag-switches-end

    Hmmm... Personally I prefer the old one. The layout is not as pleasing on the eye and the top-right navigation is now a drop-down rather than just simple links.

    Sometimes I think these updates are just done for the sake of it and don't bring anything new or improvements with them.

    I really don't like the new interface at either. I've been scouring around the forum here, and the internet in general, looking for a way to restore the old interface, but keep the upgrade, and have been thinking of simply not updating most of my sites to the new version if I can't.

    The old interface is just so bubbly, happy, and friendly, the new interface just seems cold and trying to be futuristic. I WANT MY OLD BUBBLY, HAPPY, AND FRIENDLY WORDPRESS BACK! :(

    If someone on the forums here knows a way to keep the old interface, but also upgrade to the new WP version, please let us know!!!

    Thank you!

    The dashboard's appearance has been redesigned with future versions of WordPress in mind. It can be customized via plugins or CSS.

    That doesn't help.

    With a user-base as titanic as WordPress, it just seems, not well thought out that the core coding folk couldn't have simply, and easily rolled the code over into an admin theme plugin themselves, such as was done with the admin bar:

    Anyway, if the core folk could make something like this happen, I am sure that a whole lot of us will be extremely appreciative.

    Thank you!

    I don't mind the new design, but the change in fonts has become a "readability" issue.

  12. altfg1 - You can change the fonts.

    The updates to the interface are sound - I think people are too comfortable with the way it was. We fear change. I love the tighter integration. The sidebar does not take up as much room, and can be hidden fairly easily. And my experience with the full-page editor has been great. Its leaps and bounds over the older one which confused many a client.

    For people who don't like the new interface, due to the use of light colours and simplicity.... do you use google email? Because they are headed doen the exact same road. Seems WordPress is right on target with current design trends.

    Can I just say how much I DETEST the new fonts in the back-end of it? Why on earth did they decide to use a clunky font like couier sans for the html editor portion? An overly graphic way of putting it is it feels like there are font spiders crawling in my brain and causing me to have dyslexia. So frustrating. I'll try the suggestions mentioned -- thank you.

    Also, has anyone else been losing full paragraphs when they update, save or publish a post?

    2) Thank you, those who like the new Dash.

    3) I'm sorry, those who DON'T. If you need specific help, make a support topic.
