Originally to be completely controlled functionality references, including whether the target page really exists (and does not report a 404 error). Eventually, though, it was due to problems curtailed entire function on the basic checking the correctness of the specified link.
The originally-designed functions has therefore become a rather small thing, which is nevertheless still promoted as one of the major innovations in custom WordPress 4.6 (it should appear already officially tomorrow).
Sometimes, although with some bad links on the site still meet, but it’s relatively infrequent. Users gradually learned to work with links and often is loaded, it still manually controlled. Anyway, should a new feature to filter out various errors when the wrong copy or edit the URL address.
At first glance it might seem that you have on your site everything is fine, template plugins are from official sources and regularly updated, but suddenly heard a hosting provider that has infected WordPress and we have to do something quickly done. Why and what can happen?
Cause of the problem often lies in the fact that although some plugins are reported as dangerous, but did not learn about it (if you’re not actively watching news from this area).
WordPress 4.6 brings (except perhaps obvious change fonts) no major changes, but rather gradually optimize the existing functionality and fixes various bugs. Whether one likes it or not, about the new version, we can stop to watch closely, as it will gradually lead to subtle periodic updating as is the need for browsers. But it’s nothing negative, and time changes, users will simply still use the popular WordPress, and developers will only need to regularly monitor current changes.
The basic idea best again get after watching the introductory video presentation, where this time managed to add Czech subtitles.
And what will be new for users? Complete news list can be found in the documentation (in English), the most important changes we briefly introduce.
About “visible” will change the font when the original font Open Sans (retrieved directly from Google, implemented within the administration changes in WordPress 3.8) replaced by general fonts based on the operating system. Each device can have some administration look a little different, but the differences are only slight. On the other hand, this step brings more benefits, so we do not unnecessarily load other external services and font adapt to the equipment used, thus unification of different applications.
WordPress 4.6: Changing Font (Open Sans)
Another attraction should be faster and more user-friendly installation, activation and deletion of plugins and templates. The foundation has been laid already in WordPress 4.2, but in the end were the only update plugins, whereas now we can use this function finally everywhere (even on the page for import tools). I’m a bit confused, although it comes at the mass installation of plugins when even know that there was at any plugin crashes or longer everything went, but in general can be no objection. You do not again return to a page with a list of plugins when you want to install any and everything will now take place neatly on one page and without additional clicks.
On the new version, I worked continuously (to varying degrees), but so far the development was mainly determined by what I just needed to their clients. Slowly, however, the time has come to change it in order to develop new functions (and rewriting some of the original) a little faster and users will be able to better predict and monitor (or more frequent updating).
I came across also quite a big difference between adding features you need at a particular web client and prepare the same functions for general use in a separate plugin 🙂 Users are creative and use the possibilities and ways that I would never have dreamed of, regardless of the various templates , plugins and hosting servers. In terms of the quality of the source code, although it still kinda looks like a “patchwork” of different functions, but quietly begins to develop basic structure, which will gradually be concentrated rewritten parts plugin. But for the future, not only the development itself, but also the financing, I’ll write a bit more detail next time.
Plugin remains available completely free and has no limitations, except perhaps that it is a opensource 🙂 You can use it not only for themselves but also for their clients (and have to pay for it).
