The latest WordPress ver 4.8 has been finally released. For a while, it was in Beta version stage. You can take a look at what appeared on my WordPress Dashboard after the ver 4.8 update. Please follow the below pdf file link (4 pages – edited … sorry a bit of blank space everywhere where I had to delete all the reference to my WordPress website).
Most exiting update feature is the following 4 Widget update.
Now easily to add an image to a widget without using any code. All we have to do is insert images directly within the widget settings.
Now very simple to add any video from Media Library to a sidebar on WordPress site with new video widget feature of ver 4.8.
For any music lover like a podcaster, musician, or just want to add audio, this is a very big enhancement. Just upload audio files to the Media Library and then go to your widget settings to add the files.
Rich-text editing becomes native for Text widgets, giving complete customization with text format power.
Particularly, we can now use Rich Test in Text Widget (up to now – simple text only) where we no longer have to use third party Text Widget to create a Text Widget box. I’m sure WordPress users will soon start talking about these updates. It’s really amazing to see the evolution of WordPress platform. It only gets better.
