If you are using WordPress then you would have received the WordPress 4.6 Update –
Update now requests by now. I never used to bother about the version updates previously but the updates are one of the best ways to understand why was an update performed and what way it helps us in doing our blogging more effectively. Let us check it out now.
Best features of WordPress 4.6.1 Update
Inline link checker
Broken links are one of the worst enemies of SEO, they can seriously affect your blog because if a reader clicks on the broken link the result would be annoying and which is not good for SEO. So, one best thing in 4.6 is there is an inline link checker which checks the link whether is proper or broken and help you understand that seeing the red highlight happens whenever you input a broken link.
You don’t have to worry about adding a new plugin to check the broken links in your blog post 🙂
Automatic Draft save
Nothing seems more annoying than losing your hard work and that too when you lose the content of your blog post due to network or system failure it feels like to smash the machine upside down. But, now you don’t have to worry 4.6 version does an auto save of draft to the browser local so that you don’t loose your work.
Doesn’t it feel hard that WordPress takes a good amount of time to load and perform the activities which we ask it to do? Yes, it feels and this load reduces when WordPress uses Native fonts as the OS in which your machine resides to increase the performance of WordPress and thus your efficiency and effectiveness as a blogger would go a level higher even with a low-performance machine.
Stream Lined Updates
I should have told about this update in the beginning, but anyhow this feature is one of those features which all of us would be looking forward and that is an update of theme or plugin wouldn’t take us to a new page. Instead, the update happens in the same page itself and the action is completed.
These streamline updates would allow us to stay focused on the same page instead of jumping from one page to another like a frog 😉 .
There are many other features which we can discuss further in the coming blog posts.
Hope this blog post helps you in understanding the new features of WordPress 4.6 more effectively. Thanks for Reading, Bye… Take care…Tags: new features, update, version change
