Wordprss 2.8 New Features
Install Plugins from within WordPress – This is a feature and seems to work well. Instead of going to wordpress.org and finding the plugin, downloading it, unzipping it, and then re-uploading it to your website, you can now do all that from within WordPress with just a few clicks.
Install Themes From Within WordPress- This feature didn't work on their website, but apparently when they moved this featured so you can do it inside your WordPress install, they didn't enhance the search feature. I was not impressed. Its easier when you find a theme, but finding a theme was not any easier.
