Built-in Options in WordPress for Online Publishers

Fans always eagerly await new releases of WordPress. New releases of WordPress are highly anticipated because they are much safer and simpler to use. This is the main reason why online publishers like the bloggers use WordPress. It is the best content management platform because it is reliable. The recent arrival WordPress 3.4 is laden with built in features and these options are to the core advantageous. It is very wise to update your WordPress site to this current version, if you are not using the same. You can see the new features displayed in the dashboard page and have a quick view of them. Here is a list of built-in options in WordPress for online publishers.

Live Theme Preview:

You can see how a theme applies to your site by clicking the link LivePreview. This link provides the update of how your page looks when the theme is applied to it. You get to see a preview and the current theme is not changed when you try this option.

Theme Customizer:

You can preview the site title, tagline, colors, header image, background image, navigation and static front page using this option. Just by clicking the activate button you can see the changes saved and if you do not like to change any of these hit the cancel button.

Easy tweet Embedding:

To embed a tweet all you need to do is to just copy paste the URL of the tweet. All you need to do is to copy the complete URL. This is offers you hassle free embedding of a tweet and this is highly appreciated feature of WordPress.

HTML in image captions:

HTML image captions could not be added in the earlier WordPress versions. This letdown is compensated by the recently released 3.4 version of WordPress. If you cannot add HTML image captions, the greatest disadvantage is that you cannot place links on the titles. For instance, when you get an image from any of the site, it would be much easier to reach the link of the photographer, if the caption has a link to the specific sites. Without the 3.4 version of WordPress it is simply impossible to insert such links in the captions of the images. Now, you can place the links in the captions with a special effect like bold, italic or underline and make it standalone.

Easy YouTube Video embedding:

It is not the tweets alone that people intend to embed easily, but YouTube videos too. All you need to do is to paste the URL of the YouTube video. Additionally, this version of WordPress also lets you modify the parameters like height, breadth and width using the relevant shortcodes.

PageBreak:

A few posts look drawling and boring if they are not split. The Page Break functionality in WordPress lets you split the post into multiple pages.
