Yesterday 6 March I got a message on my dashboard about WordPress now has been updated to 4.7.3 Vaughan. That was interested for me like before because there were so many updates in WordPress with the passage of time and every update added some new features in WordPress. Earlier wrote article on WordPress updates are WordPress 4.5 Features Overview. I personally loved with this new upgrade because it has very innovative changes also they improved UI functionalities.
Theme Starter Content:
When you successfully done with 4.7.3 WordPress installation then you will see that default theme of WordPress Twenty Seventeen come with example content. It means by default you will see four pages, Homepage, about, blog and contact. All all these four section or pages contains demo content which can be considered as theme starter content to understand the flow and pages criteria.
This time WordPress 4.7.3 Vaughan comes with real time editing features even editing real time preview. On theme front pages you will see edit icon with every section of theme heading, taglines, content even with widgets only the condition is that your customize section should be open while doing all that.
This time WordPress added fast animated video header in twenty seventeen header, its by default available there. It’s a great change and this feature changed the complete environment surrounding there.
Smoother Menu Building:
If you are customizing your website through customize section directly with real time preview so you will see the add page option. This Add page option on the left mid side of the customize section, through which you can easily add new pages directly from here. After adding or creating pages from here WordPress automatically add the demo content inside those pages.
WordPress 4.7.3 Vaughan enables for every WordPress user to add custom CSS as per their requirements though customize section and also can see the live preview of the CSS changes. Yes this is now happened in reality, you don’t need to save over and over again and reload next page again to see the CSS changes. That was a big headache but now you can add it CSS even can see it in real time preview. We all should say thanks to WordPress team 🙂
PDF Thumbnail Previews:
After uploading PDF files in your media library, now you can see their preview before WordPress 4.7.3 Vaughan that was not possible. So it’s a great change with new valued feature.
There are more other functionalities changes but these above are highlighted even I really like that especially Custom CSS live preview stuff.
