WordPress 5.0 has been released.

This version of WordPress is a major rewrite and changes the way everything works. I will be spending the rest of today making sure the 120 or so ministries we host are upgraded and continue to work after the upgrade.

There are numerous plugin and theme upgrades that are needed to make sure that the sites keep functioning after the upgrade.

I have mixed feelings about this as it has the potential to break a lot of stuff, and give me days of work trying to clean up stuff.!

If you have a WordPress website. You can go back through our blog and see some articles on navigating through WordPress 5.0 and their new “Gutenberg” editor.

All the sites we are hosting have the old “Classic” editor installed, so the Gutenberg editor should not cause any immediate issues.
