The good news is that WordPress 5.0 was launched today. Even better, we’re thrilled to let you know that if you’re a Hampshire IT Solutions client then your website has already been updated and is 100% compatible. This is because all our client website solutions are bespoke through design rather than code, so we’re able to constantly update the digital framework on which they are built.
The new WordPress version features lots of great new updates. Here’s a rundown of what this means for you:
WordPress 5.0 brings some big upgrades to the editor. The new block-based editor is the first step toward an exciting new future with a streamlined editing experience across your site. You’ll have more flexibility with how content is displayed, whether you are building your first page, adding a new blog post or adding new products to your E-Commerce store. The new block-based editor known as “Gutenberg” is available all HITS site alongside our custom editor.
WordPress 5.0 also introduces compatibility with PHP 7.3. Our tests are already showing a significant page load speed change with this new version. While we are not actively using this new version yet we aim to be supporting in the coming months.
With this big new update, we have been busy testing and updating our core framework and site plugins used to ensure full compatibility. Our forms, editor, SEO and Store plugins have all been fully tested with WordPress 5.0 and updated already on all of our client’s sites.
We hope you like all the WordPress 5.0 updates as much as we do!
