Though many of the concepts in this course are still relevant, overall this course does not reflect our current course standards.
[00:01:58] We have things like the customizer, which is the first single page web app experience built inside WordPress and it let's you change all these features like menus and widgets. It doesn't add the content directly but your site name and you could swap out themes and things like that, and see all of it live and preview.
>> Zac: Wait for it, it's so worth it.
>> Zac: The media library, so, a pretty robust media library where you can drag and drop images, you can move stuff around easily.
[00:02:49] You can just drag stuff on into the browser and it will load. And not just images, but videos, other things as well. It has some embed technology, so you can just paste a YouTube link in there and it will automatically reform it into a embedded URL. This was built in backbone and at the time, a lot of thinking went into making that decision of what framework should be used, and it allowed a lot of things to be done that weren't able to be done before.
[00:03:22] Also, because it's in core, it was used for other projects, so we also have things like post revisions, which is a way to basically scroll along a bar and see left and right differences between different posts. So if you have an about page and you've edited over the course of a year and changed things, you could just drag something and see the two previews side-by-side of the differences.
