WORDPRESS 5.0 Upgrades Required
February 21 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC+0
Current Release. The current release in progress is WordPress 5.1. It’s scheduled to be released – February 21, 2019.
We are in the process of updating all our clients websites who are on a refresh plan to the newest version of WordPress…. WOW, it’s a HUGE PROJECT!
What if I want to upgrade but I’m not ready for Gutenberg?
If you don’t update – you will likely be booted from a Good Hosting Provider and increase your chance of a Full Hack/Virus ten fold. If you upgrade your old website and server to 5.0+ without a new install of WordPress and PHP7 Server, your site will break – regardless of hosting provider.
See our 911 Announcements Starting early 2018:
No problem, submit a helpdesk ticket to CI Web Group (firstname.lastname@example.org) requesting us to install the Classic Editor plugin and 5.0 will be indistinguishable from 4.9.8 for your posting and editing experience, and you’ll still get the other improvements and fixes that have gone into 5.0. Classic Editor is supported until 2022, and now allows you to switch between Classic and Gutenberg on a per-user or per-post level.
Over 1.3 million .org sites have already opted in to either the Gutenberg or Classic Editor plugin, which is more than run any single version of WP prior to 4.7! Those sites will notice nothing change besides a version number.
