If you want to test the latest WordPress version no matter if it is in Beta or Release Candidate version then I suggest you install the following plugin WordPress Beta Tester on a test machine or WordPress test platform. This is very important if you want to know whether or not your current setup will accept the next WordPress version.

WordPress Themes Twenty Family

WordPress has a number of default themes that begin with the name Twenty. These themes are always updated to work with the latest WordPress version released. If you can’t find a theme you like in the repository, then simply using one of these default themes will give a head start.They are clean, simple and almost bug free. Remember they are updated by the WordPress community.

  1. Hi, I just updated to WP 3.3.1 and the blog members are complaining because it’s so difficult now to access the built-in private messaging function. It is much harder to access the inbox now – is there a way to have it appear somewhere more prominently?

    • Hello Denis, thank you for your question?

      Can you please elaborate more what are you trying to achieve. If you have a look at the admin panel on the top you will see that a message symbol will display any new message submitted.

      When you mention the inbox, are you referring the point above?

      Kind regards

  2. O really? What are the added feature in the updated wordpress version?

    • Hello and thank you for your question. If you click on the above link it will provide another link where it illustrates the code improvement. Click on the following WordPress 3.4 rc2 to view the changes.

  3. Hello,

    Can someone please help me; I just installed WordPress 4.1 and my visual editor isn’t working. It looks like there’s a bug in the code.

    Thanks,
    Stephanie

    • Hi Stephanie, thank you for your question. Have you tried a different theme? Have you also tried to deactivate all your plugins and see if the issue goes away. If it does then start enabling one by one your plugins until you come across the plugin that causes the issue.

      Let me know if that helps you.

      Regards

      • Same problem as Stephanie… Just updated (automatically) to 4.1.1 and now the visual editor isn’t working.

        Stephanie, did you find a fix? I don’t have any plugins enabled and I have the default theme but can’t edit/create pages or posts now….

        thanks!
