WordPress 3.9.2 Smith Udpates

Clients are enjoying a whole new editing experience with the new WordPress 3.9.2 update titled “Smith”.

The focus of the latest update by the team at WordPress was to bridge the gap between the experience you have editing your article while creating content and the look and feel of the article while on your site. Many content management systems suffer from this downfall, especially the content management systems that don’t utilize what we developers call “in-line editing”. In my personal experience the editors that do give reasonable displays of content are “saftey” creation tools for beginners and lack the real power of a true creational interface. That causes a problem because that power is the exact thing most businesses that are serious about online publishing really need.

It’s good to see the team at Automatic is working toward bridging the gap within a professional publishing environment. One of the many reasons wordpress is king.

This quick video highlights some of the new functionality and features you might want to try to test drive inside your creation tools if you haven’t already.
