WordPress 2.8 feature ranking survey

| December 24, 2008 | Leave a Comment

With over 600,000 thousands in just a few weeks, WordPress 2.7 is a sure hit. And that success has a lot to do with the active participation of its community.

Automattic continues to acknowledge this, and they are moving on to develop for the next version of WP, they’re enlisting our help once more in deciding the key features to include in its release.

Right now, the lead developers are thinking the top priorities for 2.8 will be widget management, theme browser/installer and performance upgrades. The rest of the development time will be taken up with bug tickets and additional features/enhancements from a prioritized list. To that end, we’ve posted a new survey for you to help us prioritize features for 2.8. The list pulls from the developers’ “2.7 leftovers” list as well as the most popular features from the Ideas forum. Just rank each feature and tell us your top pick (up to three). You also have the option of adding comments or additional suggestions, but this is not mandatory. For your response to count, you must rank all of the features in the list. The survey has only one page.

Take the survey here. Deadline is on December 31.

Other miscellaneous announcements from the above post:

  • Lead developers will resume IRC chats and discuss weekly progress on feature development. Everybody is invited to participate in these chats.
  • You should submit your ideas for new WordPress features to the Ideas section, not the Trac.
