We additionally let you recognize a little bit of details about your PHP and WP model, in addition to whether or not you’ve e mail notifications turned on or not for malware scanning (I actually ought to flip mine on!)

There’s extra details about your Blocklist standing and audit logging too, to not point out two-factor authentication, superior instruments, and scheduled stories.

Not Simply Fairly Efficiency

I’ve to take the blame right here, we’ve been so centered on how the plugin expertise rolls for Smush and Hummingbird that this space has been missed to some extent.

Alongside that, we’ve launched some dwell content material evaluation (additionally not my most interesting hour, but it surely’s good to know I can enhance it when the 2021 season is – possibly – going to kick off) alongside an excessive amount of different extraordinarily helpful search engine optimisation Instruments together with MozRank, automated linking, schema and OpenGraph on your social media.

So, please do be at liberty to offer it a whirl now and, you guessed it, tell us what you assume within the feedback 🙂

Nevertheless, you possibly can count on stability going ahead by way of the general aesthetic and design, so that you gained’t and don’t have to re-introduce any of your customers or shoppers to the setting over again.

In truth, our goal is that their expertise is each seamless and self-explanatory, and that every one future enhancements will merely seem to be enhancements to the platform as an entire, somewhat than the considerably radical reconceptualization you’re seeing right here.
