Developing a network and I'm thinking that the individual blog owners will be confused by the admin area, announcements and the sort. Most of these people will not be tech oriented and will want an easy point click and publish experience and could get distracted. Is there a way to remove all but necessary stuff from admin area?
I've looked for a plugin that does this but haven't found any. But I also have another question.
On the same subject, the admin UI, theres also the choice, for them, of post formats (standard, image, quote, etc). I also like the Woo Tumblog UI: big buttons, ease of use, but I also like the post formats which I can customize too. Plus whenever possible I'd like to stay with that WordPress has built for us. But for a standard user, I think this is confusing (there's the saying that with too many choices people choose nothing). Don't the features overlap each other?
What's better? I like the way the Tumblog UI looks: clean and easy to use. But I've thought of staying w the built in formats and customize page templates too. Or do you think most people would understand all the choices?
Any advice on this? Hope this isn't two subjects and I hope it's not too long.
