Anybody else not like the new WordPress Dashboard? I'm jumping ship since it feels like stepping back several years in usability, and so I'm looking for a new CMS.
I just spent a year getting acquainted with the inner workings and even wrote a little code snippet to allow two levels of navigation with pages so I could offer it as a lite CMS solution for clients needing both a website and a blog...and then this latest travesty of an interface comes along.
Not since Typo3 have I used an interface that felt so claustrophobic, unwieldly and shot through with scroll bars, iframes and immovable windows.
Might be a good thing though. I'm taking a look at Joomla again after having not played with it for a couple years. If there are any others jumping off the WordPress ship, I would love to hear what solutions you're considering for a blog platform?
Myself, I'm looking for either blogware that can be used to manage pages (which really, WordPress never did well, hence the need for a hack) and double as a lite CMS...or a CMS that handles blogging really well and doesn't treat it as an afterthought.
Ease of integration for payment gateways (for subscriptions in particular) is a plus.
My field so far is looking like:
I tried fiddling with Drupal several months ago, but there too many bugs with the interface for my tastes.
