WordPress 4.0 is here and totally impressing me.
I'm just loving what is available in this update and I'll explain why I love what WordPress has done.
As always, when it's time to find out about wordpress updates, I always check out what Just-Ask-Kim has to say.
"Introducing WordPress 4.0 (And GA by Yoast 5.0) Two important updates rolled out today for WordPress users! WordPress 4.0 + Google Analytics for WordPress 5.0 (by Yoast) Sweetness! WordPress 4.0 You can find the official announcement for WordPress 4.0 here. Features […]"
As Kim recommends, make sure you backup before you update. Like Kim, I use backup buddy and totally recommend it. It's made my backups easy ever since.
I'm totally impressed with the new image and imbedded image functionality. It's amazing what can be done with images now. If you are a Chrome user, you would know that for years, making changes to images was a real pain and not easy to do. Wordpress 4.0 has fixed all that. Just adjust as you need. You can also see your YouTube videos as they will appear, something that wasn't possible with older versions.
This update has made finding plugins so much easier. You no longer have to leave your blog to check out reviews. It's all just right there for you to choose what you need. The new plugin view finally looks modern and easy to use.
I'm also really impressed with the Media Library Grid. Looking at images, updating them and seeing what you have easily is a functionality that is really going to be used. I know I'm not the only blogger who has images that need to be fixed up, and the new functions allows that to happen easily and quickly.
I am just loving the new WordPress 4.0 Benny update. Have you updated yet?
