Washington Dc, MD (PressExposure) June 29, 2009 -- WordPress, the top self-hosted blogging platform, is continuously making improvements. Itâs one of the reasons why it is the favorite among many bloggers and websites. The most recent version, WordPress 2.7, is packed with significant features and redesigns. Among its new features are keyboard shortcuts for comment moderation, sticky posts, one-click plug-in installs, reply to comments from admin, comment threading, theme update api, and many more.
According to an Orange County web design company, it is important to keep your WordPress version updated because most of the time, many issues are addressed and many bugs are fixed with newer versions. However, an expert of Orange County web design further adds that upon updating your WordPress version you might sometimes find yourself with a theme or a plug-in that does not work. Itâs a good thing that themes for the latest WordPress versions are churned out faster than you can say âupdateâ.
An orange county web design company suggests using themes optimized and designed for the latest WordPress versions. In this way, you maximize not just your theme but your WordPress install as well.
