WordPress Major Update: Ready for 4.8?

Here at our studio, we are all about WordPress. That’s because we build powerful and sleek websites with WordPress. We have launched websites that grew exponentially using the #1 and most popular, user-friendly content management system (CMS).
And here’s another great news for our WordPress business hustlers. A new major update is coming and if you think this powerful CMS has made your life easier…then this one will make you throw a party and plan ahead your summer vacation.

Because WordPress just make your life much and much easier!
Here’s the gist of what’s coming at the 4.8 update.

 

New WordPress DashboardWordPress Events and News on Dashboard – You usually see the WordPress news on your dashboard when you log in. Most of my clients ignore these WordPress news and I admit, I do too. But now, WordPress is introducing Events and News on your dashboard. WordPress events near your location will appear on the Events and News dashboard. Now, you won’t miss any WordPress events or Wordcamps in your area.

 

 

New image widgetImage Widget – Okay, so the Events and News on your dashboard doesn’t excite you. How about inserting your image on the widget section with just one click. You normally have to use HTML code to insert an image on your widget section (or hire us to do it for you). At 4.8, you’ll be able to insert an image directly on the widget without using the HTML code.

 

 

Text widgetText Widget – And if the image insert on widget doesn’t make you starting packing for your vacation, here’s another update that will ease up your work. WordPress 4.8 will give you the ability to edit the text content on widget using a Visual/Text editor similar to editing a page or post. You can create bold and italic texts, create links and list on your widget without using any HTML code.

 

 

New WordPress video widgetVideo Widget – The video widget will allow you to upload your video (similar to image widget) on the widget section. I don’t recommend you using your website to host your videos because it will just use up your website’s bandwidth. So I always recommend you host your video either in YouTube or Vimeo. The video widget will also allow you to just enter the URL of your Youtube or Vimeo video instead of entering the embed code.

 

 

New wordpress visual editor version 4.8

Improved Visual Editor – improved visual editor to edit/create new pages and posts. A new TinyMCE with improved inline elements.

The new WordPress version is set to launch in July. Stay tuned and get ready.

Before we go…

Do you have a WordPress website that hasn’t been updated in ages? If your website is still running an old WordPress version (like over 5 years without updates), you are in need of major upgrade. A major upgrade doesn’t mean updating your WordPress core only. A major upgrade meant a new WordPress theme, core and plugin updates. To ensure your website runs with the growing modern technologies and mobile environment, we recommend you contact us for a free no-obligation quotation request.
