My blog interface just changed to 2.5 without any prior announcement. I imagine it’s going to be an interesting weekend on the wordpress.com support forums for two reasons.
(1) Most wordpress.com bloggers that I know haven’t bothered to test drive the new interface on the demo site that I posted about previously.
(2) Those who haven’t done the test driving will be unaware of the functionality changes when it comes to widgets.
Mark has now placed a sticky post at the head of the forum containing instructions. But based on my history of answering over 7,000 questions there, I’m betting that most bloggers probably will not read it.
Here’s the official announcement.
