I have been using Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, and more software published by Adobe since version 1.0. Over the past five years I’ve primarily used Photoshop, but not the current version. When I upgraded to CS6 in Spring 2012 I was offered an opportunity to sign up for the new Adobe Creative Cloud which would give me monthly use of just about every software package that Adobe offers. I finally decided to take Adobe up on their offer on August 30, 2012. After a year of the cloud service, I have to say I’m hooked. On August 27, 2013 I took advantage of the offer to upgrade to the Adobe Creative Cloud for Teams so I could add other contractors and employees to the program.
For the past couple days I’ve not been able to figure out why I couldn’t find the “Links” section in my WordPress dashboard on a new site installation. I finally decided to search for the answer this morning and learned that starting with WordPress 3.5 that feature had been automatically disabled on install. I must be missing something. Since I primarily use WordPress as a content management system, I loved using the Links feature to organize my research links. Until I have time to learn more about the reasoning for disabling the feature as a default option, I found Andrew Nacin had created this Link Manager plug-in that brings the feature back. Better yet, I need to find time to learn more about customizing my WordPress Dashboard.
