A LITTLE LESSON IN CLIENT LOVE
I’m a huge advocate for “Client Centric UX”. What I mean by that is focusing as much on the client’s user experience as we do on their target market’s user experience. Having a simple to use WordPress admin goes right along with this concept. Not everyone is familiar with WordPress…shocking, I know. Furthermore, there are a lot of people who are fairly tech-savvy but have no concept of what a “blog” does or what a “post” is.
For this reason, I almost always rename the default “post” post type to something else. Why would I leave my client a menu item that says “Posts” when they are adding news updates, or portfolio items? When labels are not intuitive, they cause confusion…which in turn can lead to a slower learning curve for your poor, poor clients. Really, for your poor, poor self…because you know who they are going to call for instruction.
