Akshulleh, the new Admin layout sorta grows on you. But I do still have issues. 2.7 has altered slightly the application of media controls in my posts - it's made 3 categories of identifier, for one thing [url, caption, title] and the result is that ALL of the pictures in my blog now no longer have the 'hover cursor over graphic to reveal name' feature. The feature is THERE but is imbedded in a slightly different way.
The Visual/HTML box seems a little unstable too. Jitters.
The blog works pretty much as before except I can no longer login from the home page. That's not a big issue but 2.6.5 was ok so I would not think the Theme is too badly upset, just a minor glitch that could one day turn into, "Huston, we have a problem".
I found, when I finally got version 2.7 upgraded and stable, my Admin area was a dog's breakfast due to the fact I had not uploaded ALL the new files - that's a big job using Direct Admin. [secret - I don't know how to use an external FTP to upload the complete suit of folders and files the way some people do] And WPAU Plugin so far hasn't done it for me. All my upgrades have been manual.
When 2.8 comes out I may surprise myself and discover WPAU finally wrx! I deleted all of it from my server and I'll reinstall the Plugin and run it when 2.8 is released.
Yes. I think I like the new Admin Dashboard - kinda grows on you.
