Your Site Is Already WordPress 5.2 Compatible!
WordPress 5.2 was launched today and is available for update on all WordPress driven websites. Even better, we’re thrilled to let you know that if you’re a Hampshire IT Solutions (HITS) client, then your site has already been updated. Due to the fact that all HITS use a custom WordPress framework, we are able to implement this to all of our clients on the day of release.
Here’s a rundown of what this means for you:
Site Health Check
With security and speed in mind, this release introduces WordPress’s first Site Health features. From now on WordPress will start showing notices to sites that run outdated versions of PHP. PHP is the core programming language that powers WordPress. However, all of our customer’s sites currently are running version 7.2. With plans to upgrade to 7.3 once full compatibility checks have been made.
When you install new plugins, WordPress’s Site Health features will check them against the version of PHP you’re website is currently running. If the plugin requires a version that won’t work with your site, WordPress will keep you from installing that plugin.
PHP Error Protection
WordPress 5.2 is an administrator-focused update will let you safely fix or manage fatal errors without requiring developer time. Features include better handling of the so-called “white screen of death,” and a way to enter recovery mode, which pauses error-causing plugins or themes.
With this 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 5.2 and already updated on all of our client’s sites.
