WordPress 5.0 is on its way! Normally updates to online platforms are done incrementally, allowing small changes to build into something new over various versions – not the case here. Do you write a lot of content on WordPress platforms? Well, you are going to have to make some adjustments to your habits because the new Gutenberg Editor is bringing even more options and customization to your editing experience. A new theme is one the way as well (Twenty Nineteen Theme, obviously). There are, however, some major considerations to make going into WordPress 5.0.
Update and Test!
When it comes to these major updates it’s important to keep in mind that without testing and making adjustments, you could break some elements of your website. Releases on this scale typically affect everything, especially when it comes to plugins. Third-party plugins can often update irregularly or not at all, so testing compatibility is of the utmost importance when leading up to the release of WordPress 5.0. The last thing you want is a broken website because you didn’t take the time to prepare, there are plenty of ways to pretest as WordPress has its own beta options and you can even try the Gutenberg editor early!
