As I told you earlier, I am impressed with WordPress 2.7. This is one of the best publishing platforms out there and it's 100% free. In case you wanna try it out yourself, you can download it at the official wordpress site.
However, to be honest with you, there are a couple of things that I don't like about wordpress. But the beauty of it is that you can use wordpress' excellent flexibility to "change" what you don't like. "Yes WordPress can!"
So what is it that I don't like and how did I fix it?
One thing that I definitely don't like about wordpress is that it automatically replaces "straight quotes" with curly quotes (amongst other things). WordPress texturizes special characters for easier reading, but the result doesn't look good when you look at the source code (think search engine wise), and it's a pain in the butt if you try to share some programming code or if you try to paste some copied texturized text.
A simple and free plugin written by Jason Litka called disable wptexturize. Download it and upload it via FTP to your plugin-folder:
your domain » wp-content » plugins.
Then activate the plugin via your wordpress dashboard. Click on plugins and find "disable wptexturize". Voila!
Now let's move on to the second wordpress feature I don't like: revisions and autosave. Each time you change something in your post, wordpress automatically saves a copy of the previous post version so that you can easily undo the changes you made (a revision).
Now this gets really annoying after a while, especially when you use the google toolbar as your primary spell checker. Google underlines the words it doesn't recognize and wordpress sees the underlining as a change, so it makes a copy, etc...
You can easily disable revisions and autosave by installing and activating a free plugin called... disable revisions and autosave. It was written by Exper Giovanni Rubaltelli and it works flawlessly.
