Just a quick note regarding the WordPress 3.9, named “Smith” in honor of jazz organist Jimmy Smith. The big changes:
The visual editor has finally been upgraded!
The updated visual editor has improved speed, accessibility, and mobile support. You can paste into the visual editor from your word processor without wasting time to clean up messy styling.
You may now edit images more easily.
With quicker access to crop and rotation tools, it’s now much easier to edit your images while editing posts. You can also scale images directly in the editor to find just the right fit.
Live widget and header previews.
And audio and video importing has been improved.
We’ve added simple audio and video playlists, so you may now showcase your music and clips more easily.
A note for HackGuard.com clients:
I generally recommend a cool down period of five days following a major WordPress update. Why be someone else’s test subject. . .
That said, if you do see a WordPress update available, no worries. I’ll be working through the update for your website within the next week or so.
HackRepair.com and HackGuard.com specific news:
For those interested in displaying a nice security banner on your website, I’ve released a new banner (floating below, bottom right).
Any questions on the new banner, like for me to install it for you, or need the HTML code please call or email me when ready.
