A brief visual history of wp-admin’s h1

This ticket comment has some visual history of the h1 in wp-admin that I’d like to bubble up to here. Thanks @afercia.

 h1 was used for the site name in all the admin screens, with a link back to the front page. It was removed with the refactoring of the admin bar. See how it looked in WordPress 3.0 in this screenshot.

Prior to 3.0, the header had "Visit Site" cuddled next the site name h1 to make it more discoverable. This screenshot shows WP 2.7.

Today in the Nightly: Inline link toolbar and Press This split button

Here are two cool things that recently landed in trunk and are available right now in the nightly build. Install the nightly. Try them.

Inline Link Toolbar

Being able to visit links straight from the editor means no more copy paste into the browser’s location bar. Nice. Also nice is being able to see the link without popping up the link modal.

One time I tapped X thinking it would dismiss the toolbar.

To test, visit the editor and click/tap into a link. The link toolbar will appear. If it does not, try forcing a browser refresh (Shift+Reload in Chrome on Mac OS). Provide feedack on  #32604 or in #core-customize or in reply to this post. Check out this make/flow post for more visuals.

Press This split button

Draft, preview, and standard editor are now in a split button with Publish.

To test, go to the Tools menu and check out the Press This section at the top. Provide feedback on #32757 or in #core-pressthis or in reply to this post.
