WordPress 3.6 Released

August 3rd, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

WordPress 3.6 released…upgraded this site today without a hitch.  Every time an upgrade comes out, like clockwork you can check the WP forums and see where people just pushed the upgrade button and something went wrong. Without a backup, you may be up the creek. See this video for the proper way to upgrade so you will be able to recover if something like this happens to you. http://wordpress.org/support/topic/upgrading-to-36-database-loop By the way, I love the help the “volunteer moderator” provided “@Lismich – please start your own thread.” What wonderful assistance :-)

New features in 3.6

  • The new Twenty Thirteen theme inspired by modern art puts focus on your content with a colorful, single-column design made for media-rich blogging.
  • Revamped Revisions save every change and the new interface allows you to scroll easily through changes to see line-by-line who changed what and when.
  • Post Locking and Augmented Autosave will especially be a boon to sites where more than a single author is working on a post. Each author now has their own autosave stream, which stores things locally as well as on the server (so much harder to lose something) and there’s an interface for taking over editing of a post, as demonstrated beautifully by our bearded buddies in the video above.
  • Built-in HTML5 media player for native audio and video embeds with no reliance on external services.
  • The Menu Editor is now much easier to understand and use.
