Features Page

Remember when we asked you about your favorite features a few weeks back?

Well we’ve compiled that feedback into new feature pages meant to better reflect what the heck WordPress.com actually does. That page is now linked from the front page when you’re not logged in.

It’s not finished yet, but we’ve tried to fill out the various feature pages with lots of screenshots so they’re as much mini-tutorials as anything. Even if you’re a pro WordPress user, you might want to scan through just to see if there’s anything there that you might not know how to do.

Also now those of you who have trying to convince friends to move to WordPress.com have a little more ammo to show them what you’ve already figured out.

    Looks great — a lot of resources in one place. And as you said, you built the page based on what we think is coolest about WordPress. Smart!

    I knew you guys were up to something when you asked us for our favourite feature. ;-) I’d submitted a couple of features but it was eaten by the Monster-who-sometimes-eats-posts. Or maybe it just doesn’t like me.

    I like the new link to the features; it tells a nice story.

    Excellent! Buy why limit the feature list to only when you are logged out? Many are still learning while they are using, so why not make it available for everyone all the time?

    One thing I should add: It’s pretty fail-safe. Without having to go into a template to edit things, it’s impossible to mess up your layout!

    Just a thought, add a small screenshot/graphic for each section so that it doesn’t look like a big page of text.

    You do say that you can change themes “at the click of a button”, but I think it’s worthwhile to also note that–unlike some other blog services that start with B and rhyme with Hogsquat–theme are instantaneous regardless of the size of your blog, because they do not require republication of your entire post history.

    Ahh, now I see it, way down in the second-to-last section. Consider rolling it into the Themes near the front? Or just never mind.

    Good deal, wish I’d had it five months ago. It will reduce newbie confusion; Forum questions.
    ~Engtech & fab kitten have it right: “add a small screenshot/graphic for each section”
    ~Front Page: should make “Features Page” –stand out in some way (larger font/bold/image/
    graphic/”start here”/arrow, e.g.).

    That is a good list of reasons to use WordPress (which I do for my blogs here at WordPress.com and also my self-hosted blogs). It is a more sophisticated and feature-rich platform. That said, the point about gorgeous theme options needs some tempering… without doubt much credit is due to the various authors of the themes available at WordPress.com for their effort and the result. Credit is also due to WP for the sophistication of the configurability of the UI (it took till Blogger Beta for its users to have stop editing HTML and CSS to add, when possible, even a trivial UI element). However, themes at Blogger (among other sites and software) score a bit higher on refinement and some rather pragmatic issues such as use of real estate, size of fonts, etc.
