WordPress 5.0 is Here!
It’s really kind of hard to believe my last blog post was in June! I guess now that the weather is getting colder I’m finding time for my “indoor” hobbies such as reading and writing.
In the span of an hour I read that a new (major) version of WordPress was available and received a notice form my hosting provider that my contract was up for renewal. This is as good a time as any to update the site and add some more content!
The new WordPress editor is really interesting. It’s based on your contend being a series of blocks. These blocks can be scaled, moved, and colored individually. This gives a tremendous amount of creative freedom to play around with layouts. This is something that was all but impossible just a year ago on this platform (without some heavy CSS editing).
I’m learning the design has a lot to do with your theme. The current theme I’m using for the site is called “Twenty Sixteen” and it’s missing a lot of features that will allow me to take advantage of the new editing functions. So that means it’s time to start looking for a new theme and a new site design!
It feels good be back on the Blog. Time to start researching some options to make the site even better in 2019!
