New WordPress version makes platform even richer

Many of the world’s leading companies use WordPress as their content management system, because of its ease of use, wide plugin options and the rich experience that users get. Now, with the latest version of this ever-evolving CMS, that experience has gotten even better, for website owners and end users alike.

WordPress 4.0 updates version 3.0, which allowed people to install just one version of the CMS and use it across a number of sites at once. The latest incarnation allows those running sites to embed rich media into their content with greater ease. There are now 26 sites that WordPress supports to automatically embed media so you don’t have to get code to embed it manually – and they include such media stalwarts as YouTube, Twitter, SoundCloud, Instagram, Photobucket and Vimeo.

Other improvements found in WordPress 4.0 include greater simplicity when searching local media, as images and other files in Media Library are now displayed as thumbnails in a grid and are searchable by file type. The grid feature is now also part of the process of installing plugins, and plugins that are featured are categorised into various groups, such as Social and Tools.

As security has become such an important issue for sites these days, and because WordPress is such a popular CMS, the threat of attack by hackers is always there. There’s nothing new in terms of security features in WordPress 4.0 but it really is one of the most secure content management systems around – as long as you don’t stray too far from plugins and other items from, which are free from malicious code and other threats. Plus, WordPress has some solid security plugins that you can install.

Any bugs in the latest version should be ironed out shortly, with a minor 4.0.1 update. Overall, if you’re already running a WordPress site, or are thinking about migrating, it’s worthwhile upgrading now to take advantage of the new features and to make operating your site even easier, providing the best possible experience to your visitors. That is, after all, what great content management systems are all about.
