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.
I’ll be honest, this is pretty dull. But today’s Press Up covers the remaining settings in WordPress for discussion and media. It’s a bit of a whistle-stop tour, and you may be better off reading the help pages. But hopefully this 5-minutes is helpful.
An overview of how to insert other types of media in WordPress. I specifically look at inserting a PDF as that’s a case that comes up a lot. I also show how you can link an image to the PDF to give a “preview” of the document you’re about to see.
An overview of how to set featured images in WordPress posts and pages, and how they might be used.
Overview of basic image/photo inserting options. There will be more details of alignment and captions tomorrow!
