Major Improvements for WordPress!

The updates and improvements just keep on rolling. Version 4.9 of WordPress, “Tipton” features new additions designed to improve your workflow. If that isn’t enough there is another new widget to utilize as well as usability improvements.

Customizer Updates

That’s right, Customizer is getting some much needed love with this update. New improvements include scheduling site design changes, preview design changes, design locking so another user cannot override your changes, and prompts to save any unsaved changes after an idle time.
