3 ) The following images illustrate the difference in the image advanced settings. In 3.8 it is called Advanced Settings. In 4.1 and 3.9.1 it is called  Advanced Options.

In version 3.8 it is the same as it has been for the last previous version 3.6.1, 3.7.1 and 3.8.2 with changes made on the backend code. The settings are easy to follow because of the titles next to each field but I am sure many found the layout boring after a while.


The following image refers to version 3.8, it shows you the extra Advanced Link Settings. I will say that many became accustom to these settings but probably found it too difficult to make changes and probably used a plugin to implement some of the fancy editing. The more knowledgeable users probably added some functions in the theme functions.php file.


In version 4.1 and 3.9.1, it is simple and easy for you to follow. You don’t have that many options for you to edit. The following fields are empty but become populated once you start to edit your pages or post images.


4 ) The following images illustrate where the button to view the editor in full screen mode is located.

In version 3.8 the full screen mode button is located inside the WYSIWYG editor. This can become too confusing for some and not easy to find until you have become accustom with the menu layout.


In version 4.1 and 3.9.1 the full screen mode button is located on the far right hand side of the WYSIWYG editor underneath the Text tab. Very easy to see and it makes it much easy to click on it. There are no more distractions from all the different editing options in the menu bar. Smart move by the WordPress developers.


From the above you can see a difference between the new and predecessors.  I will be updating this post from time to time so keep coming back for the latest.

If you have any questions please let me know.
