WordPress 4.4 “Clifford” is here.
WordPress 4.4 makes your site more connected and responsive.
Your Apple iOS or Google Android cell phone periodically releases simple and sometimes major software updates, introducing new technologies related to the way you interact with your phone. It may be hard to notice these ticks and tocks, but if you compare a 2009 iPhone to a 2015 iPhone it may feel like you took a step into the stone age.
Same concept here but with cloud technology that can be accessed nearly anywhere.
– WordPress now takes a smarter approach to displaying appropriate image sizes on any device, ensuring a perfect fit every time. –
– Now you can embed your posts on other WordPress sites. –
– The REST API gives developers an easy way to build and extend RESTful APIs on top of WordPress.
Divi 2.5.x Framework continues to dominate.
Featuring The Divi Role Editor, Live Preview And Much More!
This is the most popular framework we use to build Guru websites. This theme is where the value of the updates is very important because each frequent update introduces new trends in coding and design.
We take a variable amount of time each month ensuring that your website is evolving into the future. We fix bugs after updating, and make use of new features to ensure your website looks as if it was just built yesterday, forever.
WordPress Plugin Updates
Cybercriminals see WordPress websites as prime targets for attack since there are millions of them. That is why it’s imperative that WordPress site owners keep their platforms, themes and installed plugins up-to-date.
Here at Wapp.Guru we provide monthly plugin updates and testing in addition to what’s listed above. Updates, Updates, Updates.
We use an average of 12 essential plugins on our default Guru websites with no add-ons, making sure that these updates do not conflict with the framework and/or overall WordPress updates.
Using plugins helps differentiate your WordPress site from the likes of SquareSpace, Weebly, and Wix. WordPress plugins are powerful and the customization and design opportunities are endless.
The Guru Package is a $25/month website service providing technical and design updates.
Thanks friends and Happy New Year!
