We work with many clients who use the WordPress platform, so we like to keep tabs on what the WordPress folks are up to and whether the latest updates are taking things in the right direction for the site builds we do.
WordPress is at it again—this time releasing an update that streamlines the UX of WordPress and hammers out some longtime problems that ardent fans of the platform will be happy to see gone.
Version 4.8, styled “Evans” after the jazz performer Bill Evans, includes several key updates that streamline the publishing process:
- New media widgets that make image, video, and audio inclusion easier than ever
- Updates to text widgets that simplifies the process of rich text formatting
- A news and events dashboard to keep users informed about what’s going on in the WordPress world
