WordPress is a great way to create and edit the content on your website but to do that you need to update WordPress to its latest version. As you can guess by the name of this article version 5.7.2 is now available.
This new version is there to make everything even simpler. Without using a code or hiring a pro you can do even more and you can do it in a few places like you couldn’t before. The controls that you use the most like changing font sizes are available in more places. Exactly how and where you need them. There are also layout changes like full-height images, and now they are even simpler to make.
The Editor is Now Even Easier to Use
As we mentioned earlier, you can find font size options in several places. You can find them in the List and Code blocks. It will be very easy for you to make changes to the font.
Reusable blocks: several enhancements make reusable blocks more stable and easier to use. And now they save automatically with the post when you click the Update button.
Inserter drag-and-drop: drag blocks and block patterns from the inserter right into your post.
You Don’t Need to Write Custom Code to Do More
Full-height alignment: have you ever wanted to make a block, like the Cover block, fill the whole window? Now with the new update, you can.
Button’s block: You can choose between a vertical or a horizontal layout. You can also set the width of a button to a preset percentage.
Social Icons block: You will be able to change the size of the icons.
A Simpler Color Palette
The new color palette contaminates the colors of WordPress in a range of 56 shades.
You can find the new palette in the default WordPress Dashboard color scheme, and use it when you’re building themes, plugins, or any other components.
From HTTP to HTTPS in a Second
With the new update, you can switch from HTTP to HTTPS with just one click. WordPress will automatically update the database URLs when you make the switch. No more guessing and worrying about how to do it.
New Robots API
The new Robots API lets you include the filter directives in the robot’s meta tag, and the API includes the max-image-preview: large directive by default. That means search engines can show bigger image previews, which can boost your traffic (unless the site is marked not-public).
Lazy-load your iframes
Now it’s simple to let iframes lazy-load. By default, WordPress will add a loading=”lazy” attribute to iframe tags when both width and height are specified.
To Sum Up
The new update is now available. You can of course experience this and much more if you update WordPress to version 5.7.2. We will recommend you update your websites as soon as possible to the latest version to be easier for you to work in WordPress.
