Triggered at line # 2797 FeedWordPress version: 0.993 WordPress version: 4.6.9 PHP version: 5.6.33 SyndicatedPost (_wp_id problem): array(2) { [0]=> array(17) { ["post_title"]=> string(26) "WordPress 4.9 “Tipton”" ["post_content"]=> string(43275) "<h2 style=\"text-align: center\">Major Customizer Improvements, Code Error Checking, and More!&nbsp;🎉</h2> <figure class=\"wp-block-image\"><img src=\"https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/banner.png?fit=2400%2C1200&amp;ssl=1\" alt=\"\" /></figure> <p>Version 4.9 of WordPress, named “Tipton” in honor of jazz musician and band leader Billy Tipton, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. New features in 4.9 will smooth your design workflow and keep you safe from coding errors.</p> <p>Featuring design drafts, scheduling, and locking, along with preview links, the Customizer workflow improves collaboration for content creators. What’s more, code syntax highlighting and error checking will make for a clean and smooth site building experience. Finally, if all that wasn’t pretty great, we’ve got an awesome new Gallery widget and improvements to theme browsing and switching.</p> <hr class=\"wp-block-separator\" /> <h2 style=\"text-align:center\">Customizer Workflow Improved </h2> <figure class=\"wp-block-image\"><img src=\"https://i0.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/customizer-workflow-improved-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1\" alt=\"\" data-recalc-dims=\"1\" /></figure> <h3>Draft and Schedule Site Design Customizations</h3> <p>Yes, you read that right. Just like you can draft and revise posts and schedule them to go live on the date and time you choose, you can now tinker with your site’s design and schedule those design changes to go live as you please.</p> <h3>Collaborate with Design Preview Links</h3> <p>Need to get some feedback on proposed site design changes? WordPress 4.9 gives you a preview link you can send to colleagues and customers so that you can collect and integrate feedback before you schedule the changes to go live. Can we say collaboration++?</p> <h3>Design Locking Guards Your Changes</h3> <p>Ever encounter a scenario where two designers walk into a project and designer A overrides designer B’s beautiful changes? WordPress 4.9’s design lock feature (similar to post locking) secures your draft design so that no one can make changes to it or erase all your hard work.</p> <h3>A Prompt to Protect Your Work</h3> <p>Were you lured away from your desk before you saved your new draft design? Fear not, when you return, WordPress 4.9 will politely ask whether or not you’d like to save your unsaved changes.</p> <hr class=\"wp-block-separator\" /> <h2 style=\"text-align:center\">Coding Enhancements</h2> <figure class=\"wp-block-image\"><img src=\"https://i2.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/coding-enhancements-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1\" alt=\"\" data-recalc-dims=\"1\" /></figure> <h3>Syntax Highlighting and Error Checking? Yes, Please!</h3> <p>You’ve got a display problem but can’t quite figure out exactly what went wrong in the CSS you lovingly wrote. With syntax highlighting and error checking for CSS editing and the Custom HTML widget introduced in WordPress 4.8.1, you’ll pinpoint coding errors quickly. Practically guaranteed to help you scan code more easily, and suss out &amp; fix code errors quickly.</p> <h3>Sandbox for Safety</h3> <p>The dreaded white screen. You’ll avoid it when working on themes and plugin code because WordPress 4.9 will warn you about saving an error. You’ll sleep better at night.</p> <h3>Warning: Potential Danger Ahead!</h3> <p>When you edit themes and plugins directly, WordPress 4.9 will politely warn you that this is a dangerous practice and will recommend that you draft and test changes before updating your file. Take the safe route: You’ll thank you. Your team and customers will thank you.</p> <hr class=\"wp-block-separator\" /> <h2 style=\"text-align:center\">Even More Widget Updates </h2> <figure class=\"wp-block-image\"><img src=\"https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/even-more-widget-updates-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1\" alt=\"\" data-recalc-dims=\"1\" /></figure> <h3>The New Gallery Widget</h3> <p>An incremental improvement to the media changes hatched in WordPress 4.8, you can now add a gallery via this new widget. Yes!</p> <h3>Press a Button, Add Media</h3> <p>Want to add media to your text widget? Embed images, video, and audio directly into the widget along with your text, with our simple but useful Add Media button. Woo!</p> <hr class=\"wp-block-separator\" /> <h2 style=\"text-align:center\">Site Building Improvements </h2> <figure class=\"wp-block-image\"><img src=\"https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/site-building-improvements-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1\" alt=\"\" data-recalc-dims=\"1\" /></figure> <h3>More Reliable Theme Switching</h3> <p>When you switch themes, widgets sometimes think they can just move location. Improvements in WordPress 4.9 offer more persistent menu and widget placement when you decide it’s time for a new theme. </p> <h3>Find and Preview the Perfect Theme</h3> <p>Looking for a new theme for your site? Now, from within the Customizer, you can search, browse, and preview over 2600 themes before deploying changes to your site. What’s more, you can speed your search with filters for subject, features, and layout.</p> <h3>Better Menu Instructions = Less Confusion</h3> <p>Were you confused by the steps to create a new menu? Perhaps no longer! We’ve ironed out the UX for a smoother menu creation process. Newly updated copy will guide you.</p> <hr class=\"wp-block-separator\" /> <h2 style=\"text-align:center\">Lend a Hand with Gutenberg 🤝</h2> <figure class=\"wp-block-image\"><img src=\"https://i2.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/gutenberg-1.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1\" alt=\"\" data-recalc-dims=\"1\" /></figure> <p>WordPress is working on a new way to create and control your content and we’d love to have your help.

WordPress 4.9 gives you a preview link you can send to colleagues and customers so that you can collect and integrate feedback before you schedule the changes to go live. Can we say collaboration++?</p> <h3>Design Locking Guards Your Changes</h3> <p>Ever encounter a scenario where two designers walk into a project and designer A overrides designer B’s beautiful changes? WordPress 4.9’s design lock feature (similar to post locking) secures your draft design so that no one can make changes to it or erase all your hard work.</p> <h3>A Prompt to Protect Your Work</h3> <p>Were you lured away from your desk before you saved your new draft design? Fear not, when you return, WordPress 4.9 will politely ask whether or not you’d like to save your unsaved changes.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Coding Enhancements</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i2.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/coding-enhancements-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>Syntax Highlighting and Error Checking? Yes, Please!</h3> <p>You’ve got a display problem but can’t quite figure out exactly what went wrong in the CSS you lovingly wrote. With syntax highlighting and error checking for CSS editing and the Custom HTML widget introduced in WordPress 4.8.1, you’ll pinpoint coding errors quickly. Practically guaranteed to help you scan code more easily, and suss out &amp; fix code errors quickly.</p> <h3>Sandbox for Safety</h3> <p>The dreaded white screen. You’ll avoid it when working on themes and plugin code because WordPress 4.9 will warn you about saving an error. You’ll sleep better at night.</p> <h3>Warning: Potential Danger Ahead!</h3> <p>When you edit themes and plugins directly, WordPress 4.9 will politely warn you that this is a dangerous practice and will recommend that you draft and test changes before updating your file. Take the safe route: You’ll thank you. Your team and customers will thank you.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Even More Widget Updates </h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/even-more-widget-updates-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>The New Gallery Widget</h3> <p>An incremental improvement to the media changes hatched in WordPress 4.8, you can now add a gallery via this new widget. Yes!</p> <h3>Press a Button, Add Media</h3> <p>Want to add media to your text widget? Embed images, video, and audio directly into the widget along with your text, with our simple but useful Add Media button. Woo!</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Site Building Improvements </h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/site-building-improvements-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>More Reliable Theme Switching</h3> <p>When you switch themes, widgets sometimes think they can just move location. Improvements in WordPress 4.9 offer more persistent menu and widget placement when you decide it’s time for a new theme. </p> <h3>Find and Preview the Perfect Theme</h3> <p>Looking for a new theme for your site? Now, from within the Customizer, you can search, browse, and preview over 2600 themes before deploying changes to your site. What’s more, you can speed your search with filters for subject, features, and layout.</p> <h3>Better Menu Instructions = Less Confusion</h3> <p>Were you confused by the steps to create a new menu? Perhaps no longer! We’ve ironed out the UX for a smoother menu creation process. Newly updated copy will guide you.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Lend a Hand with Gutenberg 🤝</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i2.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/gutenberg-1.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <p>WordPress is working on a new way to create and control your content and we’d love to have your help.

New features in 4.9 will smooth your design workflow and keep you safe from coding errors. Download or update today!" ["atom_content"]=> string(42223) "<h2 style="text-align: center">Major Customizer Improvements, Code Error Checking, and More!&nbsp;🎉</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/banner.png?fit=2400%2C1200&amp;ssl=1" alt="" /></figure> <p>Version 4.9 of WordPress, named “Tipton” in honor of jazz musician and band leader Billy Tipton, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. New features in 4.9 will smooth your design workflow and keep you safe from coding errors.</p> <p>Featuring design drafts, scheduling, and locking, along with preview links, the Customizer workflow improves collaboration for content creators. What’s more, code syntax highlighting and error checking will make for a clean and smooth site building experience. Finally, if all that wasn’t pretty great, we’ve got an awesome new Gallery widget and improvements to theme browsing and switching.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Customizer Workflow Improved </h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i0.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/customizer-workflow-improved-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>Draft and Schedule Site Design Customizations</h3> <p>Yes, you read that right. Just like you can draft and revise posts and schedule them to go live on the date and time you choose, you can now tinker with your site’s design and schedule those design changes to go live as you please.</p> <h3>Collaborate with Design Preview Links</h3> <p>Need to get some feedback on proposed site design changes? WordPress 4.9 gives you a preview link you can send to colleagues and customers so that you can collect and integrate feedback before you schedule the changes to go live. Can we say collaboration++?</p> <h3>Design Locking Guards Your Changes</h3> <p>Ever encounter a scenario where two designers walk into a project and designer A overrides designer B’s beautiful changes? WordPress 4.9’s design lock feature (similar to post locking) secures your draft design so that no one can make changes to it or erase all your hard work.</p> <h3>A Prompt to Protect Your Work</h3> <p>Were you lured away from your desk before you saved your new draft design? Fear not, when you return, WordPress 4.9 will politely ask whether or not you’d like to save your unsaved changes.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Coding Enhancements</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i2.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/coding-enhancements-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>Syntax Highlighting and Error Checking? Yes, Please!</h3> <p>You’ve got a display problem but can’t quite figure out exactly what went wrong in the CSS you lovingly wrote. With syntax highlighting and error checking for CSS editing and the Custom HTML widget introduced in WordPress 4.8.1, you’ll pinpoint coding errors quickly. Practically guaranteed to help you scan code more easily, and suss out &amp; fix code errors quickly.</p> <h3>Sandbox for Safety</h3> <p>The dreaded white screen. You’ll avoid it when working on themes and plugin code because WordPress 4.9 will warn you about saving an error. You’ll sleep better at night.</p> <h3>Warning: Potential Danger Ahead!</h3> <p>When you edit themes and plugins directly, WordPress 4.9 will politely warn you that this is a dangerous practice and will recommend that you draft and test changes before updating your file.

Of course, <a href="https://wordpress.tv/2017/12/04/matt-mullenweg-state-of-the-word-2017/">Matt Mullenweg’s State of the Word</a> talk is always one of the highlights at this event.</p> <p>The next WordCamp US will be held in Nashville again in 2018, but if you would like to see it hosted in your city in 2019 and 2020, then <a href="https://make.wordpress.org/community/2017/12/19/apply-to-host-wordcamp-us-2019-2020/">you have until February 2 to apply</a>.</p> <h2>WordPress User Survey Data Is Published</h2> <p>Over the last few years, tens of thousands of WordPress users all over the world have filled out the annual WordPress user survey. The results of that survey are used to improve the WordPress project, but that data has mostly remained private. This has changed now and <a href="https://wordpress.org/news/2017/12/wordpress-user-survey-data-for-2015-2017/">the results from the last three surveys are now publicly available</a> for everyone to analyze.</p> <p>The data will be useful to anyone involved in WordPress since it provides a detailed look at who uses WordPress and what they do with it — information that can help inform product development decisions across the board.</p> <h2>New WordPress.org Team for the Tide Project</h2> <p>As announced at WordCamp US, <a href="https://make.wordpress.org/tide/2017/12/02/new-home/">the Tide project is being brought under the WordPress.org umbrella</a> to be managed and developed by the community.</p> <p>Tide is a series of automated tests run against every plugin and theme in the directory to help WordPress users make informed decisions about the plugins and themes that they choose to install.</p> <p>To get involved in developing Tide, jump into the #tide channel in the <a href="https://make.wordpress.org/chat/">Making WordPress Slack group</a>, and follow <a href="https://make.wordpress.org/tide/">the Tide team blog</a>.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2>Further Reading:</h2> <ul> <li>If you’re following the development of Gutenberg, or if you want a primer on where it’s headed, then <a href="https://wordpress.tv/2017/12/10/morten-rand-hendriksen-gutenberg-and-the-wordpress-of-tomorrow/">Morten Rand-Hendriksen’s talk from WordCamp US</a> is a must watch.</li> <li>The annual surveys for WordPress <a href="https://wordpressdotorg.polldaddy.com/s/2017-annual-meetup-member-survey">meetup members</a> and <a href="https://wordpressdotorg.polldaddy.com/s/2017-annual-meetup-organizer-survey">meetup organizers</a> are available for people to fill out — if you’re involved in or attend your local meetup group then be sure to complete those.</li> <li>10up has <a href="https://distributorplugin.com/">a brand new plugin in beta</a> that will assist with powerful and flexible content publishing and syndication across WordPress sites.</li> <li><a href="https://make.wordpress.org/community/2017/12/07/should-we-change-the-default-wordcamp-theme-to-campsite-2017/">The Community Team is exploring a move</a> to make the recently developed CampSite theme the default theme for all new WordCamp websites.

(2015) / Do you work for a company, or on your own? (2016-17).&#8221;</p> <p>Those who selected &#8220;I own, run, or contribute to a blog or website that is built with WordPress.&#8221; were served questions in what we&#8217;re calling the &#8220;WordPress Users&#8221; group.</p> <p>The relevant survey group is noted in each table below. In the case of questions that were served to different groups in 2015 but then served to all respondents in 2016 and 2017, the group responses from 2015 have been consolidated into one set of data for easier comparison between years.</p> <h4>Survey results</h4> <p><a href="#pro">Jump to answers from WordPress Professionals</a></p> <p><a href="#user">Jump to answers from WordPress Users</a></p> <p><a href="#all">Jump to answers from All Respondents</a></p> <p><!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}--></p> <h3>Which of the following best describes how you use WordPress?

In the case of the questions &#8220;What is the best thing about WordPress?&#8221; and &#8220;What is the most frustrating thing about WordPress?&#8221; we listed the five most common responses, aggregated when applicable. In the case of the question “What is your gender?” in the 2016 and 2017 surveys, we aggregated responses as best we could. Responses meant to obscure respondents’ gender entirely are aggregated in “prefer not to answer.”</small></p> " } [2]=> array(11) { ["title"]=> string(37) "The Month in WordPress: November 2017" ["link"]=> string(72) "https://wordpress.org/news/2017/12/the-month-in-wordpress-november-2017/" ["pubdate"]=> string(31) "Fri, 01 Dec 2017 11:00:44 +0000" ["dc"]=> array(1) { ["creator"]=> string(15) "Hugh Lashbrooke" } ["category"]=> string(18) "Month in WordPress" ["guid"]=> string(34) "https://wordpress.org/news/?p=5290" ["description"]=> string(354) "The WordPress project recently released WordPress 4.9, “Tipton” — a new major release named in honor of musician and band leader Billy Tipton.

New features in 4.9 will smooth your design workflow and keep you safe from coding errors.</p> <p>Featuring design drafts, scheduling, and locking, along with preview links, the Customizer workflow improves collaboration for content creators. What’s more, code syntax highlighting and error checking will make for a clean and smooth site building experience. Finally, if all that wasn’t pretty great, we’ve got an awesome new Gallery widget and improvements to theme browsing and switching.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Customizer Workflow Improved </h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i0.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/customizer-workflow-improved-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>Draft and Schedule Site Design Customizations</h3> <p>Yes, you read that right. Just like you can draft and revise posts and schedule them to go live on the date and time you choose, you can now tinker with your site’s design and schedule those design changes to go live as you please.</p> <h3>Collaborate with Design Preview Links</h3> <p>Need to get some feedback on proposed site design changes? WordPress 4.9 gives you a preview link you can send to colleagues and customers so that you can collect and integrate feedback before you schedule the changes to go live. Can we say collaboration++?</p> <h3>Design Locking Guards Your Changes</h3> <p>Ever encounter a scenario where two designers walk into a project and designer A overrides designer B’s beautiful changes? WordPress 4.9’s design lock feature (similar to post locking) secures your draft design so that no one can make changes to it or erase all your hard work.</p> <h3>A Prompt to Protect Your Work</h3> <p>Were you lured away from your desk before you saved your new draft design? Fear not, when you return, WordPress 4.9 will politely ask whether or not you’d like to save your unsaved changes.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Coding Enhancements</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i2.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/coding-enhancements-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>Syntax Highlighting and Error Checking? Yes, Please!</h3> <p>You’ve got a display problem but can’t quite figure out exactly what went wrong in the CSS you lovingly wrote. With syntax highlighting and error checking for CSS editing and the Custom HTML widget introduced in WordPress 4.8.1, you’ll pinpoint coding errors quickly. Practically guaranteed to help you scan code more easily, and suss out &amp; fix code errors quickly.</p> <h3>Sandbox for Safety</h3> <p>The dreaded white screen. You’ll avoid it when working on themes and plugin code because WordPress 4.9 will warn you about saving an error. You’ll sleep better at night.</p> <h3>Warning: Potential Danger Ahead!</h3> <p>When you edit themes and plugins directly, WordPress 4.9 will politely warn you that this is a dangerous practice and will recommend that you draft and test changes before updating your file. Take the safe route: You’ll thank you. Your team and customers will thank you.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Even More Widget Updates </h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/even-more-widget-updates-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>The New Gallery Widget</h3> <p>An incremental improvement to the media changes hatched in WordPress 4.8, you can now add a gallery via this new widget. Yes!</p> <h3>Press a Button, Add Media</h3> <p>Want to add media to your text widget? Embed images, video, and audio directly into the widget along with your text, with our simple but useful Add Media button. Woo!</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Site Building Improvements </h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/site-building-improvements-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>More Reliable Theme Switching</h3> <p>When you switch themes, widgets sometimes think they can just move location. Improvements in WordPress 4.9 offer more persistent menu and widget placement when you decide it’s time for a new theme. </p> <h3>Find and Preview the Perfect Theme</h3> <p>Looking for a new theme for your site? Now, from within the Customizer, you can search, browse, and preview over 2600 themes before deploying changes to your site. What’s more, you can speed your search with filters for subject, features, and layout.</p> <h3>Better Menu Instructions = Less Confusion</h3> <p>Were you confused by the steps to create a new menu? Perhaps no longer! We’ve ironed out the UX for a smoother menu creation process. Newly updated copy will guide you.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Lend a Hand with Gutenberg 🤝</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i2.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/gutenberg-1.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <p>WordPress is working on a new way to create and control your content and we’d love to have your help.

New features in 4.9 will smooth your design workflow and keep you safe from coding errors. Download or update today!" ["atom_content"]=> string(42223) "<h2 style="text-align: center">Major Customizer Improvements, Code Error Checking, and More!&nbsp;🎉</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/banner.png?fit=2400%2C1200&amp;ssl=1" alt="" /></figure> <p>Version 4.9 of WordPress, named “Tipton” in honor of jazz musician and band leader Billy Tipton, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. New features in 4.9 will smooth your design workflow and keep you safe from coding errors.</p> <p>Featuring design drafts, scheduling, and locking, along with preview links, the Customizer workflow improves collaboration for content creators. What’s more, code syntax highlighting and error checking will make for a clean and smooth site building experience. Finally, if all that wasn’t pretty great, we’ve got an awesome new Gallery widget and improvements to theme browsing and switching.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Customizer Workflow Improved </h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i0.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/customizer-workflow-improved-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>Draft and Schedule Site Design Customizations</h3> <p>Yes, you read that right. Just like you can draft and revise posts and schedule them to go live on the date and time you choose, you can now tinker with your site’s design and schedule those design changes to go live as you please.</p> <h3>Collaborate with Design Preview Links</h3> <p>Need to get some feedback on proposed site design changes? WordPress 4.9 gives you a preview link you can send to colleagues and customers so that you can collect and integrate feedback before you schedule the changes to go live. Can we say collaboration++?</p> <h3>Design Locking Guards Your Changes</h3> <p>Ever encounter a scenario where two designers walk into a project and designer A overrides designer B’s beautiful changes? WordPress 4.9’s design lock feature (similar to post locking) secures your draft design so that no one can make changes to it or erase all your hard work.</p> <h3>A Prompt to Protect Your Work</h3> <p>Were you lured away from your desk before you saved your new draft design? Fear not, when you return, WordPress 4.9 will politely ask whether or not you’d like to save your unsaved changes.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Coding Enhancements</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i2.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/coding-enhancements-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>Syntax Highlighting and Error Checking? Yes, Please!</h3> <p>You’ve got a display problem but can’t quite figure out exactly what went wrong in the CSS you lovingly wrote. With syntax highlighting and error checking for CSS editing and the Custom HTML widget introduced in WordPress 4.8.1, you’ll pinpoint coding errors quickly. Practically guaranteed to help you scan code more easily, and suss out &amp; fix code errors quickly.</p> <h3>Sandbox for Safety</h3> <p>The dreaded white screen. You’ll avoid it when working on themes and plugin code because WordPress 4.9 will warn you about saving an error. You’ll sleep better at night.</p> <h3>Warning: Potential Danger Ahead!</h3> <p>When you edit themes and plugins directly, WordPress 4.9 will politely warn you that this is a dangerous practice and will recommend that you draft and test changes before updating your file. Take the safe route: You’ll thank you. Your team and customers will thank you.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Even More Widget Updates </h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/even-more-widget-updates-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>The New Gallery Widget</h3> <p>An incremental improvement to the media changes hatched in WordPress 4.8, you can now add a gallery via this new widget.

Now, from within the Customizer, you can search, browse, and preview over 2600 themes before deploying changes to your site. What’s more, you can speed your search with filters for subject, features, and layout.</p> <h3>Better Menu Instructions = Less Confusion</h3> <p>Were you confused by the steps to create a new menu? Perhaps no longer! We’ve ironed out the UX for a smoother menu creation process.

New features in 4.9 will smooth your design workflow and keep you safe from coding errors.</p> <p>Featuring design drafts, scheduling, and locking, along with preview links, the Customizer workflow improves collaboration for content creators. What’s more, code syntax highlighting and error checking will make for a clean and smooth site building experience. Finally, if all that wasn’t pretty great, we’ve got an awesome new Gallery widget and improvements to theme browsing and switching.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Customizer Workflow Improved </h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i0.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/customizer-workflow-improved-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>Draft and Schedule Site Design Customizations</h3> <p>Yes, you read that right. Just like you can draft and revise posts and schedule them to go live on the date and time you choose, you can now tinker with your site’s design and schedule those design changes to go live as you please.</p> <h3>Collaborate with Design Preview Links</h3> <p>Need to get some feedback on proposed site design changes? WordPress 4.9 gives you a preview link you can send to colleagues and customers so that you can collect and integrate feedback before you schedule the changes to go live. Can we say collaboration++?</p> <h3>Design Locking Guards Your Changes</h3> <p>Ever encounter a scenario where two designers walk into a project and designer A overrides designer B’s beautiful changes? WordPress 4.9’s design lock feature (similar to post locking) secures your draft design so that no one can make changes to it or erase all your hard work.</p> <h3>A Prompt to Protect Your Work</h3> <p>Were you lured away from your desk before you saved your new draft design? Fear not, when you return, WordPress 4.9 will politely ask whether or not you’d like to save your unsaved changes.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Coding Enhancements</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i2.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/coding-enhancements-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>Syntax Highlighting and Error Checking? Yes, Please!</h3> <p>You’ve got a display problem but can’t quite figure out exactly what went wrong in the CSS you lovingly wrote. With syntax highlighting and error checking for CSS editing and the Custom HTML widget introduced in WordPress 4.8.1, you’ll pinpoint coding errors quickly. Practically guaranteed to help you scan code more easily, and suss out &amp; fix code errors quickly.</p> <h3>Sandbox for Safety</h3> <p>The dreaded white screen. You’ll avoid it when working on themes and plugin code because WordPress 4.9 will warn you about saving an error. You’ll sleep better at night.</p> <h3>Warning: Potential Danger Ahead!</h3> <p>When you edit themes and plugins directly, WordPress 4.9 will politely warn you that this is a dangerous practice and will recommend that you draft and test changes before updating your file. Take the safe route: You’ll thank you. Your team and customers will thank you.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Even More Widget Updates </h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/even-more-widget-updates-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>The New Gallery Widget</h3> <p>An incremental improvement to the media changes hatched in WordPress 4.8, you can now add a gallery via this new widget. Yes!</p> <h3>Press a Button, Add Media</h3> <p>Want to add media to your text widget? Embed images, video, and audio directly into the widget along with your text, with our simple but useful Add Media button. Woo!</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Site Building Improvements </h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/site-building-improvements-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>More Reliable Theme Switching</h3> <p>When you switch themes, widgets sometimes think they can just move location. Improvements in WordPress 4.9 offer more persistent menu and widget placement when you decide it’s time for a new theme. </p> <h3>Find and Preview the Perfect Theme</h3> <p>Looking for a new theme for your site? Now, from within the Customizer, you can search, browse, and preview over 2600 themes before deploying changes to your site. What’s more, you can speed your search with filters for subject, features, and layout.</p> <h3>Better Menu Instructions = Less Confusion</h3> <p>Were you confused by the steps to create a new menu? Perhaps no longer! We’ve ironed out the UX for a smoother menu creation process. Newly updated copy will guide you.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Lend a Hand with Gutenberg 🤝</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i2.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/gutenberg-1.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <p>WordPress is working on a new way to create and control your content and we’d love to have your help.

New features in 4.9 will smooth your design workflow and keep you safe from coding errors. Download or update today!" ["atom_content"]=> string(42223) "<h2 style="text-align: center">Major Customizer Improvements, Code Error Checking, and More!&nbsp;🎉</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/banner.png?fit=2400%2C1200&amp;ssl=1" alt="" /></figure> <p>Version 4.9 of WordPress, named “Tipton” in honor of jazz musician and band leader Billy Tipton, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. New features in 4.9 will smooth your design workflow and keep you safe from coding errors.</p> <p>Featuring design drafts, scheduling, and locking, along with preview links, the Customizer workflow improves collaboration for content creators. What’s more, code syntax highlighting and error checking will make for a clean and smooth site building experience. Finally, if all that wasn’t pretty great, we’ve got an awesome new Gallery widget and improvements to theme browsing and switching.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Customizer Workflow Improved </h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i0.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/customizer-workflow-improved-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>Draft and Schedule Site Design Customizations</h3> <p>Yes, you read that right. Just like you can draft and revise posts and schedule them to go live on the date and time you choose, you can now tinker with your site’s design and schedule those design changes to go live as you please.</p> <h3>Collaborate with Design Preview Links</h3> <p>Need to get some feedback on proposed site design changes? WordPress 4.9 gives you a preview link you can send to colleagues and customers so that you can collect and integrate feedback before you schedule the changes to go live. Can we say collaboration++?</p> <h3>Design Locking Guards Your Changes</h3> <p>Ever encounter a scenario where two designers walk into a project and designer A overrides designer B’s beautiful changes? WordPress 4.9’s design lock feature (similar to post locking) secures your draft design so that no one can make changes to it or erase all your hard work.</p> <h3>A Prompt to Protect Your Work</h3> <p>Were you lured away from your desk before you saved your new draft design? Fear not, when you return, WordPress 4.9 will politely ask whether or not you’d like to save your unsaved changes.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Coding Enhancements</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i2.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/coding-enhancements-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>Syntax Highlighting and Error Checking? Yes, Please!</h3> <p>You’ve got a display problem but can’t quite figure out exactly what went wrong in the CSS you lovingly wrote. With syntax highlighting and error checking for CSS editing and the Custom HTML widget introduced in WordPress 4.8.1, you’ll pinpoint coding errors quickly. Practically guaranteed to help you scan code more easily, and suss out &amp; fix code errors quickly.</p> <h3>Sandbox for Safety</h3> <p>The dreaded white screen. You’ll avoid it when working on themes and plugin code because WordPress 4.9 will warn you about saving an error. You’ll sleep better at night.</p> <h3>Warning: Potential Danger Ahead!</h3> <p>When you edit themes and plugins directly, WordPress 4.9 will politely warn you that this is a dangerous practice and will recommend that you draft and test changes before updating your file. Take the safe route: You’ll thank you. Your team and customers will thank you.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Even More Widget Updates </h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/even-more-widget-updates-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>The New Gallery Widget</h3> <p>An incremental improvement to the media changes hatched in WordPress 4.8, you can now add a gallery via this new widget. Yes!</p> <h3>Press a Button, Add Media</h3> <p>Want to add media to your text widget? Embed images, video, and audio directly into the widget along with your text, with our simple but useful Add Media button. Woo!</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Site Building Improvements </h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/site-building-improvements-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>More Reliable Theme Switching</h3> <p>When you switch themes, widgets sometimes think they can just move location. Improvements in WordPress 4.9 offer more persistent menu and widget placement when you decide it’s time for a new theme. </p> <h3>Find and Preview the Perfect Theme</h3> <p>Looking for a new theme for your site? Now, from within the Customizer, you can search, browse, and preview over 2600 themes before deploying changes to your site. What’s more, you can speed your search with filters for subject, features, and layout.</p> <h3>Better Menu Instructions = Less Confusion</h3> <p>Were you confused by the steps to create a new menu? Perhaps no longer! We’ve ironed out the UX for a smoother menu creation process. Newly updated copy will guide you.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Lend a Hand with Gutenberg 🤝</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i2.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/gutenberg-1.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <p>WordPress is working on a new way to create and control your content and we’d love to have your help.

Finally, if all that wasn’t pretty great, we’ve got an awesome new Gallery widget and improvements to theme browsing and switching.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Customizer Workflow Improved </h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i0.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/customizer-workflow-improved-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>Draft and Schedule Site Design Customizations</h3> <p>Yes, you read that right. Just like you can draft and revise posts and schedule them to go live on the date and time you choose, you can now tinker with your site’s design and schedule those design changes to go live as you please.</p> <h3>Collaborate with Design Preview Links</h3> <p>Need to get some feedback on proposed site design changes? WordPress 4.9 gives you a preview link you can send to colleagues and customers so that you can collect and integrate feedback before you schedule the changes to go live. Can we say collaboration++?</p> <h3>Design Locking Guards Your Changes</h3> <p>Ever encounter a scenario where two designers walk into a project and designer A overrides designer B’s beautiful changes? WordPress 4.9’s design lock feature (similar to post locking) secures your draft design so that no one can make changes to it or erase all your hard work.</p> <h3>A Prompt to Protect Your Work</h3> <p>Were you lured away from your desk before you saved your new draft design? Fear not, when you return, WordPress 4.9 will politely ask whether or not you’d like to save your unsaved changes.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Coding Enhancements</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i2.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/coding-enhancements-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>Syntax Highlighting and Error Checking? Yes, Please!</h3> <p>You’ve got a display problem but can’t quite figure out exactly what went wrong in the CSS you lovingly wrote. With syntax highlighting and error checking for CSS editing and the Custom HTML widget introduced in WordPress 4.8.1, you’ll pinpoint coding errors quickly. Practically guaranteed to help you scan code more easily, and suss out &amp; fix code errors quickly.</p> <h3>Sandbox for Safety</h3> <p>The dreaded white screen. You’ll avoid it when working on themes and plugin code because WordPress 4.9 will warn you about saving an error. You’ll sleep better at night.</p> <h3>Warning: Potential Danger Ahead!</h3> <p>When you edit themes and plugins directly, WordPress 4.9 will politely warn you that this is a dangerous practice and will recommend that you draft and test changes before updating your file. Take the safe route: You’ll thank you. Your team and customers will thank you.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Even More Widget Updates </h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/even-more-widget-updates-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>The New Gallery Widget</h3> <p>An incremental improvement to the media changes hatched in WordPress 4.8, you can now add a gallery via this new widget. Yes!</p> <h3>Press a Button, Add Media</h3> <p>Want to add media to your text widget? Embed images, video, and audio directly into the widget along with your text, with our simple but useful Add Media button. Woo!</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Site Building Improvements </h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/site-building-improvements-small.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <h3>More Reliable Theme Switching</h3> <p>When you switch themes, widgets sometimes think they can just move location. Improvements in WordPress 4.9 offer more persistent menu and widget placement when you decide it’s time for a new theme. </p> <h3>Find and Preview the Perfect Theme</h3> <p>Looking for a new theme for your site? Now, from within the Customizer, you can search, browse, and preview over 2600 themes before deploying changes to your site. What’s more, you can speed your search with filters for subject, features, and layout.</p> <h3>Better Menu Instructions = Less Confusion</h3> <p>Were you confused by the steps to create a new menu? Perhaps no longer! We’ve ironed out the UX for a smoother menu creation process. Newly updated copy will guide you.</p> <hr class="wp-block-separator" /> <h2 style="text-align:center">Lend a Hand with Gutenberg 🤝</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i2.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2017/11/gutenberg-1.png?w=632&#038;ssl=1" alt="" data-recalc-dims="1" /></figure> <p>WordPress is working on a new way to create and control your content and we’d love to have your help.
