The latest version of WordPress, version 4.7 named “Vaughan” in honor of legendary jazz vocalist Sarah “Sassy” Vaughan, is now available for download via wordpress.org. If your website is powered by WordPress now is the time to upgrade! If you're an O'Brien Media customer with a WordPress maintenance agreement we'll be upgrading your website to WordPress 4.7 over the next few days.
New features in WordPress 4.7 include:
A new "official" WordPress theme, called 2017, which brings your site to life with immersive featured images and video headers.
Visible edit icons appear to show you which parts of your site can be customized while live previewing.
Now you can add new pages while building menus instead of leaving the customizer and abandoning your changes. Once you’ve published your customizations, you’ll have new pages ready for you to fill with content.
Uploading PDFs will generate thumbnail images so you can more easily distinguish between all your documents.
