What a way to start the new year with a brand new updated version of WordPress! It’s taking me a minute to wrap my head around ‘Gutenberg’… and I have to admit, I’m loving it so far.
There’s a few things to think about when moving forward with this update. Is your theme compatible? Are all your plugins compatible? Are you using a page generator to build posts and pages? This update can make an average WordPress user nervous.
I’ve been using Studiopress themes from Genesis for a while now, so I was relieved and very happy to hear they are embracing the new WordPresss and updating their child themes.
My goal for the new year is to update all my WordPress websites and finally create the web design portfolio that I haven’t gotten around to put together yet. I’ve learned a lot over the years about WordPress and E-commerce, and it’s time to apply what I’ve learned!
Stay tuned for more updates as I update all my clients’ websites as well as my own brands’ websites with the new WordPress 5.0!
