It’s time to enjoy the holidays and get ready to celebrate the new year. For Amptize, it’s time to work on future plans, wrap up big tasks before the new year starts, and do all the necessary updates.
Do you have WordPress site?
Then it’s time to update your framework because WordPress has released the 5.0 version recently. It’s a major release of 2018 from WordPress with a completely new set of improvements and some prominent changes.
Don’t forget to create a complete backup of your WordPress site before you hit the update button.
The biggest change in the latest version is its editor. WordPress has launched a new block-based editor called “Gutenberg” which allow users to create beautiful layouts using content blocks. At first, it could be a little bit frustrating for users as it’s completely different than the old editor, but that’s common. Once you are used to the new editor, you are going to love this. Hopefully, WordPress will keep making required updates to the editor based on users’ feedback to make it much more user-friendly.
Update all your plugins
Is it really necessary to update plugins? The answer is “Yes!”.
Why need to update them?
