Main Features of the Brand New WordPress 4.8:
The all new WordPress 4.8 has been released officially.
Naturally, it is a lot different from its earlier versions and offers more features too.
Let us have a quick look at what the features are that make WordPress 4.8 unique
Before trying out the 4.8 version of WordPress, you should keep in mind that because this is a purely WordPress release, therefore you may not be given the privilege of the automatic update unless your site is operated on a managed WordPress hosting service.
In that case, you must initiate the update yourself.
In addition, make it a point to keep a complete backup of all the features of your WordPress site before initiating the update.
There are a number of new features in the WordPress 4.8, which makes the platform more user-friendly. Here is a list of all of them:
Better Visual Text Editor
Meetup and WordCamp News
Better accessibility to the admin panel
Similar to the image widget, WordPress 4.8 also offers users to upload a video directly from their system without using any code whatsoever.
Just drag the file and drop into the space allotted.Image Widget
It is generally recommended that you should not ever upload a video directly on your WordPress site.
Instead, click ‘Add Video’ when the media uploader shows.
Along with the video and image widget, you can also upload audio clips to your web page with the audio widget.
Just click on the upload button to upload your audio clip and press ‘Save’.
As compared to the earlier versions of WordPress, the visual text editor is much better and more user-friendly in the WordPress 4.8.
The visual text editor has all the TinyMCE features incorporated in it and therefore it has become all easier to place your text in the format you want to.
The visual text editor also makes it easier for users to navigate among links in a comprehensible manner.
The former versions of WordPress used to display only news on the dashboard.
However, the new WordPress has come up with a Meetup feature that also allows users to participate in certain WordPress activities by typing their desired city name.
This is a great way for users to stay in touch with the other fellow WordPress users.
You can now easily insert header texts.
Although WordPress has been improvising upon their header styling since its 4.3 version, the 4.8 is way better as it has all header styles sorted out and users can easily differentiate between the different headers.
This is one of the great steps taken to boost your SEO.
Along with the new features offered in the WordPress 4.8, there are some features which have been removed. Some of them are:
WordPress now aims to be compatible with the best practices of web and open web and it will be independent of Microsoft SilverLight.
Therefore, WMA and WMV video files will not be supported in the new version.
This is because most of the searching browsers do not support Windows SilverLight.
