WordPress 4.4

We have updated Sites@UCI to WordPress 4.4, named “Clifford” in honor of the jazz trumpeter Clifford Brown. The update includes the following new features:

Twenty Sixteen Theme

Twenty Sixteen is the latest official WordPress theme, which is a modern take on a classic blog design. It is mobile responsive and was designed to look good on any device. This includes a fluid grid design, flexible header, color schemes, and more. It is available under Appearance > Themes.

Responsive Images

WordPress is using a new approach to displaying appropriate image sizes on any device, ensuring a perfect fit every time. You don’t need to do anything to your theme, it just works. The software will automatically use and display the right image based on a screen’s size.

More Embeds

You can now embed WordPress posts on your WordPress site. Simply add a post URL in to the editor and you can see an instant embed preview, complete with the title, excerpt and featured image. Note, both you and the other WordPress site will need to be using the latest version of WordPress. WordPress 4.4 also add support for new oEmbed providers including: Cloudup, Reddit Comments, ReverbNation, Speaker Deck, and VideoPress.
