Good news, hopefully🤞. WordPress 5.9 is live as of 1/25/22. And, according to this article from techradar: https://www.techradar.com/news/major-wordpress-update-makes-amateurs-look-like-master-web-developers the update will give us more customization options for our sites.
Specifically, the new theme called “Twenty Twenty-Two” features more color schemes, font combinations, and page templates to choose from. This is merely the first stage in a multi-year initiative code-named, “The Gutenberg Project” that will see further WordPress upgrades.
A word of caution – the article also says WordPress is doubling down on these BLOCKS😱 I know I’m not the only one who’s had a few🤬 things to say about the block heads ever since their wordpress inception a couple years ago.
Prior to blocks, I felt I had more freedom in how I presented my content. Now I feel boxed in (pun intended) and less creative. But maybe I haven’t given them enough practice yet. And maybe WordPress will continue to improve the boxes. I try to keep an open mind.
I’m looking forward to experimenting / customizing my site further. I really hope WordPress continues to offer upgrades and as much customization as possible to creators. Have you tried out the new WordPress yet? What kinds of upgrades would you most like to see WordPress implement?
