  2. yep wordpress is always be a good platform and its new release 3.3 is awesome specially i like is flyout menu and its JQery 1.7.1 enabled still its having few bugs which i mentioned in my blog hope it will get recover soon

  3. What about its performance regarding the non-standard permalinks and “forbidden” ones (like /%category%/%postname%/ structure)?

    • @danzell Its no longer forbidden… If you look in the permalinks, they are now even suggesting /%postname%/

      • @wpbeginner@MarkStanwyck Yes, Both the versions of popup domination is breaking the dashboard and showing white screen.

        So make sure to disable it, before upgrading to 3.3 !
