Time to update WordPress again! For our clients that have WebSavvy Studio handle their updates, no worries! We’ll be sure to make a backup before updating, we’ll perform the update steps and test for any issues that might appear. If we aren’t doing your updates for you, you need to contact us and take that off your to-do list!

If you do your own updates, don’t miss the database upgrade step. This can take some time to run, so be patient.

One of the new features of this WordPress update makes adding a link to your post easier. Here’s what it looks like and how it works:

First you highlight the text that you want to link as usual and click the insert/edit link icon.

insert link
insert link

Then the new feature appears and you type in what you are looking for and select the post that you want.

But here is what I missed at first, you have to hit apply before you publish/update or the link will not be created. See that arrow? You need to click that first. Click the gear icon if you want the link to open in a new tab/window.
