How To Use the New Dashboard in Wordpress 2.7 Admin

The biggest difference you will see after Upgrading to Wordpress 2.7 is the new Dashboard in the administrators area. Just login to your new or upgraded Wordpress 2.7 website and you will see what I mean!

The whole Dashboard has been radically designed by the developers at Wordpress and a very good job they have done on it. It may take you a while to get used to, but you will soon be wondering how you ever got by without it.
Introduction To The Wordpress 2.7 Dashboard

When you log in as the Wordpress administrator at your website (yourdomain.com/wp-admin) you will see a very different layout than that in previous versions.

The major benefits from a user perspective are that the newly designed Dashboard has much more funtionality then before and can be totally customised by you to suit your style and method of work.

Movable, Collapsible and Hideable Screen Component Modules

Just like the way that more recnt version of Wordpress have allowed you to move the positions of widgets in sidebars, you can now rearrange the modules within the central area of the dashboard screen.

Just grab the heading of any module with your mouse and drag the module to it’s new location in the dashboard (click on the heading and hold down the click while moving the cursor with your mouse).
