 Updated Visual Editor

The updated visual editor is faster, more accessible and includes mobile support. Copying and pasting from a word processor now works better as WordPress will clean up any messy styling issues.

Adding and Editing Images

Adding images just got easier. You can now drag and drop your images directly in the editor without having to go through the Add Media tool. You can also edit images more easily. You can scale your images directly in the editor to get the right fit.

Gallery Previews

You can now preview your image galleries directly in the editor without having to preview or publish to see how they will appear.


Images have galleries. Now you can also create playlists for your audio and video files.

Live Widget and Header Previews

You can now preview changes to your widgets and header images directly from the Theme Customizer. Preview your changes and save when you are happy with the results.
