In the WordPress 3.9 update you will see a lot of new features and refinements. They named it in honor of Jazz organist “Jimmy Smith”. Not sure why? The only thing I can think of is maybe it looks as smooth as he sounds. What do you think?
Anyways here are some of the main improvements with the new release of WordPress 3.9.
Improved visual editing: In the old versions you would have to clean up your text formatting if you copied and pasted from Microsoft word. I would dread doing this! Not no more! Now it is much easier to copy and paste from Microsoft word and the text formatting is much cleaner.
Easily Edit Images: Now you have quicker access to crop and rotation tools inside the visual editor. WordPress has made it easier to edit your images while editing your blog posts. You can also scale your images directly in the visual editor to find right size and fit.
Drag & Drop With Ease: You can now drag your images from anywhere on your desktop and drop them onto your visual editor. It’s much simipler and saves a lot of time.
Better Gallery Previews: The galleries can now be displayed in a beautiful grid of images right in the visual editor. So you will see it exactly how it will look in your published post.
New Theme Browser: You can now choose between many beautiful looking themes in the theme browser. Now most themes are responsive so they will look good on mobile devices as well.
Live Widget & Header Previews: So now you can rearrange your site’s widgets right in the theme customizer. You can also use the header image tool to upload, crop, and manage headers while customizing your theme.
These are some of the main attractions when it comes to the new features in the WordPress 3.9 release. Make sure you upgrade your WordPress site so you can take advantage of the new enhancements.
