It’s hard to stay enthusiastic about new WordPress products, especially ones that do not necessarily seem to push the boundaries of WordPress design and development, let alone software development as a whole.
Drag and drop interfaces is not something new and it’s been done in more than a few WordPress-centric product before. And to be honest, drag-and-drop interfaces as a whole aren’t something that is very attractive to me. I’ll admit, somewhat emotionally and illogically I just feel that d-n-d features make the product worse, not better.
I feel like for a neat feature they sacrifice the integrity of the overall product and the quality. Perhaps this is because the other options out there are so shoddily put together that it’s forever burned a psychological response when I see another one. I hope this one proves me wrong:
Now MotoPress hasn’t been released publicly yet so I haven’t been able to see anything more than the video above – has anyone gotten a sneak peek underneath the hood? I’d love to learn more!
What about your thoughts on d-n-d interfaces and WordPress? Do you see this working well? Do you use one yourself?
