WordPress Updating to 5.3.1

WordPress updated to version 5.0 a while back. We will be updating to this version on Monday or Tuesday, December 16 or 17th. Usually I don’t announce general updates, but version 5.0 will bring quite a few changes to the look and feel of the dashboard. Here are the major changes you can expect:

  • Pages & Posts: We are now using Gutenberg, a block-based editor. This means your pages and posts will be made using different blocks for text, images, etc. Check out this tutorial.
  • Themes: Some themes may not work as well if the developer didn’t update to the new editor.
  • More Control: I added the Elementor plugin. This will give you more control on designing and updating page layouts and content. See it in action in this Elementor tutorial.

If you would like to schedule an over-the-phone session to get used to WordPress 5.0, email me at amanda.sweet@nebraska.gov, or call at (402) 471-3106.
