What’s new in WordPress 4.6

This is a short overview of what’s new in WordPress version 4.6.  There’s not much, but hopefully a few helpful tips and pointers to help you through the new release.

WordPress 4.5 update

This is a short video giving an overview of the main changes for users in WordPress 4.5.

 

WordPress Loops and Queries – A guide for developers

This video is a screencast for WordPress developers describing the different types of WordPress loops and queries:

  • WP_Query
  • query_posts
  • get_posts

I outline the different uses, show code examples, explain the pros and cons and so on.

 

Confession: this was a bit of an excuse to try out some recording kit and to try doing a more in-depth screencast tutorial. It’s a bit long and rambling (despite editing) and far from perfect, but isn’t so bad for a first go at this kind of thing. Do let me know what you think!

WordPress version 4.4 update and overview of embedding

A quick update on what’s new for users in WordPress version 4.4. To be honest, the answer is “not much”, but it’s an excuse to look at the “oEmbed” feature of WordPress.

What’s new in WordPress 4.3

This is LONG overdue, but WordPress version 4.5 is now on the horizon, so it’s time I did my update tutorials for WordPress 4.3 and 4.4.  The first of these tells you what’s new in WordPress 4.3.  There’s some really useful tips and tricks for both content editors and site administrators.

What’s New In WordPress 4.2 😀

It’s been a while, but I’m back.

Now…all my Press Ups so far are based on WordPress version 4.1.

I’d held off covering the changes in WordPress 4.2 (the current latest version) because there are some new things which don’t quite work as they should, and I was hoping that they would be fixed quickly, but that didn’t happen.

WordPress version 4.3 is now coming out soon though, so it’s time to record the What’s New in Four Dot Two screencast. 5 minutes showing you the changes and new features that have been introduced.

The last one is one of my favourites, so worth watching til the end.

Setup Week: Customizer Part 2

After the last Press Up’s whizz through the customizer, today we take a more leisurely and in-depth look at its features and give some more tips.

Setup Week: Customiser Part 1

After a bit of a break we take a whistle-stop tour of the theme customizer. The customizer lets you change theme options with a live preview, and even preview new themes!

Setup Week: Choosing plugins

There are nearly 40,000 plugins in WordPress. This screencast explains how you can choose which to use.

Setup Week: Installing and Using Plugins

Plugins are extra modules that you can install to WordPress to make it do new and exciting things (or, in some cases, really quite boring but essential things). This Press Up shows you how to find, install, activate, de-activate and remove plugins in WordPress.
