WordPress updates consistently these days. I bet it’s because of the bugs and for security purposes. They also improve some features every now and then.
However, in their last updates I really dislike some of the changes:
- New Media Uploader is nice, but when uploading through a URL of image – You need to edit the “Title” first rather than after, plus you can’t edit the position right away. This should have been improved or something :/
- Page/Post Preview opens within the same window unlike before that it opens in a new tab. To me, I think it’s more convenient that it is opened in a new tab so you’ll just re-save your post and refresh the other opened new tab/window. That way changing isn’t much of a hassle because you see what changes easily.
In truth, I haven’t explored much since I no longer blog that much, but I really think these are some important points for bloggers. There were also reports to me from some blogger friends and hosting clients about corrupt updates. That doesn’t sound cool as well. But, it’s good mine updated smoothly. How’s your experience with the latest WordPress so far?
Version 3.4.1 addressed some security issues and fixed 21 bugs. For more information, see the release notes.
Yes, apparently there’s another WordPress update out. So you should update your wordpress blogs now to stay secured. Also, don’t forget to make sure your wordpress files aren’t using chmod 777 for file permissions, it will mean lots of trouble because it makes your wordpress files vulnerable to nasty hackers.
To update, simply click the link at the upper part of your wordpress dashboard (wp-admin) and then you’re set! Make sure to back up too, just in case
WordPress Update 3.4.1
Updating your wordpress site or blogs is essential because really, hackers take advantage of the bugs that are in the previous versions.
Time to update WordPress again! It is essential because chances are that the newer version of WordPress has more security fixes. But of course before you update, back up if you are uncertain of some things
When I first used Wordpress, the version was 2.7 . So much transition has happened already! Aside from these their two default themes were also upgraded. Don’t forget to update! Hackers are active as much as updates are, sometimes even if your sites are updated when they’re bored they just do things to ruin your site no matter how much a hassle it is to other people, they will hack them.
Well, at least starting from now. I’m trying to get used to using Photobucket to lessen the space of my cPanel accounts, that way, it will be easier for restoring them (just in case). It will free me from loads of space. My only problem is it’s so hard for me to get used to this kind of setting because it’s a bit of a hassle having to log in and open Photobucket in the other tab. I can manage though, I just need to get used to it.
Photobucket is a photo storage website. It’s one of the first websites I’ve used when I learned HTML, in fact it was one of the websites that made me realized how to use “<img src>” code as a newbie in web designing, that was back freewebs.com (they call it webs.com now) days. I uploaded gabunch of anime pictures and collected animated gifs because I was so addicted to them. I’d put them over my freewebs hosted website catgurl.freewebs.com (not existing anymore sadly).
However, as time passed by I forgot my passwords. I had 2 accounts there. And then, I also started using Tinypic ever since Aisha told me about it which I liked because the URLS were shorter. As far as I can tell you though, Photobucket is still more reliable than any photo hosting/storage websites.
So, if you want to save up some hosting space it wouldn’t hurt to try Photobucket! I created a new account just for this moment and I also can’t recall my old accounts’ password too. Haha.
