WordPress 4.2 Released - New Features

WordPress 4.2 was released on April 27, 2015 with the name of “Powell” (in honor of jazz pianist Bud Powell).

Not the largest update, but it does include some handy features if you use WordPress often.

Sharing Content From the Web (Press This)

It’s already fairly easy to share content from within WordPress, but now it’s even easier outside of WordPress.

By saving your Press This bookmarklet in your browser (or mobile device), it allows you to share content directly from the web to your blog. Similar to retweeting in Twitter.

Plugin Updates Are Much Quicker

Now when you update a plugin, it’ll happen within the plugin page, rather than opening a new page.

Now you can use all of the Emojis you can conjure up in your Pages / Posts.

Upgrade

If you aren’t seeing any of these features, you’ll of course, need to upgrade :)

Let me start by saying if you choose Graticle Design for your website needs, you’ve made the right choice!

Four months ago, I started a new online business. I hired a company that I had found online, to design and build my new business website. Let’s just say, it has been a complete nightmare the past few months trying to get the work done that I needed on my site. I would email them when I needed something and sometimes get no response for days. Not to mention, the amount of time it took for them to get the work done and the high cost of their services. This situation had me extremely stressed out. I must add that I am not computer savvy. Therefore, I depended on this company for all of my website needs. Finally, after months of anxiety, frustration and utter disgust, I decided to search the web for a new website design company. I searched and interviewed many. However, I felt the most comfortable with Graticle Design. When I spoke with Shawn Hooghkirk, I felt a sense of trust and ease after our very first phone interview. Shawn actually took the time to listen and understand my concerns, expectations and everything I wanted for my website. After our first interview, I hired Graticle Design. This was the best decision for my business website and for myself as well. They are fast, efficient, reasonably priced and might I add, very skilled. I am beyond impressed with their service and I couldn’t be happier! I no longer have to stress and worry. I know that I can count on this company for all of my website needs. Most importantly, they do an incredible job!

Thank you Graticle Design! Your team is amazing!

I’ve worked with Graticle Design on several projects and I have nothing negative to say. Shawn and his team do a remarkable job on both design and project management, and I’ll continue using them for the long term. In addition, Shawn has saved my backside several times when my site has been hacked – probably saving me thousands in lost dollars and hundreds of hours of lost time. I appreciate how Shawn takes a personal interest in everything I do, wanting to fully understand my businesses and seeks to not just “to a task” but help me make a bigger impact on the world.
