WordPress Version 4.7 – All you need to know
WordPress does like to name its new versions after legendary folk – and WordPress version 4.7 is no exception!
Named “Vaughan” after jazz vocalist Sarah “Sassy” Vaughan, the latest WordPress update is now available to from your WordPress dashboard or via download (after you have done a complete backup of your site before updating, of course).Some of the new WordPress version 4.7 features we love include:
– a new default theme “Twenty Seventeen” which people are raving about for its large images, video headers and mobile-first design
– thumbnail previews of PDF files in the media library
– “edit shortcuts” – visible icons shown in preview mode which allow you to edit in one simple click
– multiple languages in the dashboard, ideal for multi-lingual teams
