I am loving wordpress, overall it just kicks every other blogging software I've tried out of the water. But IMO there are a couple of essential yet simple features missing:
- preview of post (unless I missed something right now you can only preview your post after saving it, which is ok for a draft, but a problem when the post has already been published). Would be nice to have a button that opens a pop-up preview of what the actual post would look like (including changes made by any activated plugins).
- multi post manage function.To be able to change the status (draft/publish) or delete multiple posts at the same time.
- customizable Advanced controls. Would be nice to be able to choose what fields/options show up on the Advanced controls when writing a post.
Just my 2 cents...
