WordPress 5.4

We updated Faculty Websites to the latest version of WordPress, 5.4.1. This release’s focus is mainly improvements to the block editor.

Welcome to the block editor

WordPress 5.4 comes with a new welcome guide pop-up to introduce new users to the block editor. It’s a simple slideshow explaining blocks and linking to a block editor tutorial. If you don’t see it, you can launch the guide by clicking on the three-dot menu while editing and selecting “Welcome Guide”.
