Stunning New Update For WordPress

Really, the latest version of WordPress, Version 3.8 that they have named the “Parker Edition,” seems Night and Day ahead of the previous versions. We have really enjoyed it so far. We can’t wait to see what is next, the Twitter bootstrap WordPress Edition!!!

Maybe the Parker stands for Peter Parker, The SpiderMan.  It Has To Be!   This design is clearly made for Advanced Technologies in Web Design.  Highly Responsive, Mobile First Design.  We even think our Page loads faster, but who knows, we could use better hosting soon, anyways.   The Admin GUI is Totally Awesome.  We really love all the new features.  These features are all highly recommended for building Mobile First Web Projects in our opinion.  We can’t thank the WordPress Developers enough for the effort that went into this build.  Check it out for yourself and start building a Twitter Bootstrap enabled Mobile First WordPress Pages in no time.  Seriously, they have reduced the workload by a ton it seems.

How To Setup WordPress

Try it out for yourself.  Download WordPress to your blog today, or setup a webpage and your hosting service will usually already have WordPress easy for you to install.  Just go the GoDaddy, buy a domain, go to a hosting service and point the Godaddy registration to your host through DNS name servers.  Now go to your hosting service Admin page and setup WordPress.  That is how easy it is to create your new website today!  In No Time Really.  No catches, glitches, it’s really that easy.

So far, we have better control over the Website now and feel more secure with WordPress as my Blog.  We wouldn’t have any other web CMS system as my blog.  But we guess we’re a bit biased.  Some people like Drupal, Joomla, Pears, Twitter Bootstrap, HTML5 Boilerplate, you name it, tumblr, etc, but we prefer WordPress.  If you want some more review on the latest edition, here is a great look at the newest design features from WP Tavern.

Here is a look at the actual WordPress Codex

WordPress is nice for a blog, as Facebook is nice for the social media, and twitter is to Global Communication.  So check out the latest WordPress today, we will be designing a Tutorial WordPress site that sells custom made WordPress themes at a later time. Themeforest is an amazing website.  But don’t take our word for it, here’s what WP has to say about it. We recently upgraded our Webpage and redesigned it a little so far, but we are working on making it better as always.

Thanks for your time.

Now Back to More from WordPress and their Redesign Update 3.8 “Parker”

Posted December 12, 2013 by Matt Mullenweg. Filed under Releases.

Version 3.8 of WordPress, named “Parker” in honor of Charlie Parker, bebop innovator, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. We hope you’ll think this is the most beautiful update yet.

Introducing a modern new design


WordPress has gotten a facelift. 3.8 brings a fresh new look to the entire admin dashboard. Gone are overbearing gradients and dozens of shades of grey — bring on a bigger, bolder, more colorful design!


Modern aesthetic

The new WordPress dashboard has a fresh, uncluttered design that embraces clarity and simplicity.

Clean typography

The Open Sans typeface provides simple, friendly text that is optimized for both desktop and mobile viewing. It’s even open source, just like WordPress.

Refined contrast

We think beautiful design should never sacrifice legibility. With superior contrast and large, comfortable type, the new design is easy to read and a pleasure to navigate.

WordPress on every device

responsiveWe all access the internet in different ways. Smartphone, tablet, notebook, desktop — no matter what you use, WordPress will adapt and you’ll feel right at home.

High definition at high speed

WordPress is sharper than ever with new vector-based icons that scale to your screen. By ditching pixels, pages load significantly faster, too.

Admin color schemes to match your personality


WordPress just got a colorful new update. We’ve included eight new admin color schemes so you can pick the one that suits you best.

Color schemes can be previewed and changed from your Profile page.

Refined theme management

themesThe new themes screen lets you survey your themes at a glance. Or want more information? Click to discover more. Then sit back and use your keyboard’s navigation arrows to flip through every theme you’ve got.

Smoother widget experience

Drag-drag-drag. Scroll-scroll-scroll. Widget management can be complicated. With the new design, we’ve worked to streamline the widgets screen.

Have a large monitor? Multiple widget areas stack side-by-side to use the available space. Using a tablet? Just tap a widget to add it.

Turn your blog into a magazine

Create a beautiful magazine-style site with WordPress and Twenty Fourteen. Choose a grid or a slider to display featured content on your homepage. Customize your site with three widget areas or change your layout with two page templates.

With a striking design that does not compromise our trademark simplicity, Twenty Fourteen is our most intrepid default theme yet.

Beginning of a new era

This release was led by Matt Mullenweg. This is our second release using the new plugin-first development process, with a much shorter timeframe than in the past. We think it’s been going great. You can check out the features currently in production on the make/core blog.


Thanks for choosing WordPress. See you soon for version 3.9!
