Businesses are sold across the globe today with an online presence. While building a website can seem difficult, you always have WordPress to facilitate your needs in the online world. WordPress the open-source content management system allows you to “Do It Yourself”.
WordPress provides maximum flexibility, easy to use templates and designs, inbuilt features to develop and publish your website. With its recent updates, WordPress recently launched the WordPress 5.2 “Jaco”.
The new version is loaded with features like Site Health Checkup allowing you to spot any configuration and fatal errors. This feature provides two new additional pages- one to debug common configuration issue and another where developers can add “debugging” information for website managers.
For owners without any developer resource, WordPress 5.2 allows you to safely fix and manage fatal errors with the PHP error protection feature. Also, for all the owners without developers, you now have the Recovery Mode. Previously, if your site was experiencing technical difficulties or you got a white screen of death during an update, you would have to access your site via FTP. Well, WordPress 5.2 now provides a special login link for all administrators to access the dashboard in Recovery mode and undo any changes that might have triggered the error bypassing the FTP. It offers a much simplified and informed process.
To add, PHP version 5.6.20 is the minimum supported version by WordPress 5.2. Also, the new version has an updated editor. Yet, while the new editor is faster, it can be slow in the case of lengthier articles. However, typing feels much responsive to the new feature.
WordPress 5.2 now provides 13 new dashboard icons, including one for Instagram and BuddyPress. It also provides automatic checks to determine if the website version of PHP is compatible with the installed plugins.
Several new native blocks will be added in WP 5.2, which includes:
• An RSS block
• An Amazon Kindle Embed Block
• A Search block
• A Calendar block
• A Tag Cloud block
Also, it includes a New Block Manager, which allows you to switch off your least-used blocks so you won’t have to sort through them in the blocks list.
While WordPress is convenient, for owners who do not have the time to do it yourself, you can connect with the best of WordPress Development Company or a WordPress Development Service provider to build your website. It is yet imperative that you have a proper website, maintained and updated at regular intervals to stay at the top rankings of the search engine.
