March 2016 Updates

Posted Tuesday, March 1, 2016 at 7:28 am in Updates

Today we’ve updated the core plugins and a few minor things on our WordPress Multi-Site Network to improve security and performance.

  • Save your posts and pages in the most natural way: pressing Tab then Ctrl+S (or Cmd+S on Mac). It works when you’re actively editing a page or post.
  • Yoast SEO got a complete makeover with some added features to improve your search engine presence.
  • Outdated WordPress themes have been updated (including twentyeleven, twentytwelve, twentythirteen, twentyfourteen, twentyfifteen). We will be phasing these out later this year.
  • Fullscreen Background Images has been disabled on the network to improve site performance on websites that do not use this plugin. This will no longer work on your site and will need to be manually enabled per site to restore. No graphics are lost.
  • The WordPress Meta Generator that shows the version has been effectively removed from the Network (a few rogue themes had it in the theme).

*Advanced Recent Posts plugin was accidentally deactivated for a few brief moments. Any website that was using this plugin and visitor traffic during that time will need it reconfigured.

As always, if you notice something not working correctly on your website, please contact us.
