Have you upgraded to the new WordPress 5.0?
If not, you’re going to want to do that right away. It’s always a good idea to immediately update to the latest version of WordPress.
Running an old version of WordPress opens you up to all kinds of security issues. Plus, WordPress 5.0 has a whole lot of new features.
Some of those features may seem very strange to even long-term WordPress users.
Gutenberg Can Be Confusing
Have you seen the new Gutenberg editor?
If so, then you probably felt like pulling out your hair. It’s not as easy as the past WordPress editors.
It can seem overly confusing at first glance. Somehow, they’ve managed to simplify things the best way they could.
It’s kind of hard to believe anyone would make something more simple, but yet more confusing at the same time.
Somehow the good folks over at WordPress were able to do this. It was a feat that had to take many different geniuses to pull off.
There Are Other Hidden Wonders As Well
How do you select the category? Have you tried to figure that one out?
If so, then you already know how the simplest things cause the most significant amounts of confusion.
You may have spent countless hours trying to figure out something as simple as how to select what category you want your post to be in.
Don’t worry; everyone has been here.
All The Little Changes Are Actually Improvements
You don’t realize it now. But, the changes really are improvements.
The reason you don’t see it as such is that of how difficult the new interface at first appears.
You need to know that it’s not so difficult at all. In fact, you’ll be amazed by how much easier WordPress is to use now.
That might seem like a far-fetched idea to some, but you really will see this new version as more straightforward to use.
It’s definitely an upgrade, and this is the direction WordPress is going.
There is no looking back, and it’s best that you learn how to make the most of it now.
