Yesterday, WordPress 3.0 was released. In my opinion, this version has set it up well to give Joomla a run for its money. The feature that has sealed the deal for me is the ability to now create menus and publish them in various menu positions just like you would do with widgets.
Also the post types feature is a big plus as now you can have pages, posts and other types of posts. A good example of how this would be used is in the I could create a new type of posts say portfolio which will have a collection of all portfolio items in the website.
WordPress and WordPress MU have been merged into one. You can watch the video below to get what else is new in WP 3.0.
Here at KEEN we love anything WordPress and though we’d spread the message about a vulnerability that has been discovered. There has been a worm going around infecting self hosted WordPress blogs. If you have not yet updated your installations of WordPress to version 2.8.4 and for WordPress MU to 2.8.4a, make sure you do it today.
According to this article on Mashable the worm creates a hidden administrator account and it messes up the permalinks of your site. If you suspect that your blog is infected, export your posts from your blog and then do a clean fresh install. After you are done import your posts to the new install. You have to do this because the worm finds its way deep into the database.
