What’s Coming in WordPress 5 7 Features and Screenshots wp lifetime webs



WordPress 5.7 is planned to launch on March 9th, 2021, and will be the first major release of the year. This new release comes with some major new features and improvements. Come watch our video where we share what’s coming in WordPress 5.7.

The first ease of use improvement is when you are adding a block from the inserter on the left-hand side of your site, you can drag and drop the block into the location you want it to be placed.

Next, if you enjoyed using full-width blocks for different sections of your site then WordPress has added a full height block that allows you to create a block that fills in the height of the user’s screen to allow you to create engaging layouts.

Blocks should also have descriptions for their variations, as an example, the social icon blocks include a preview where you can inspect them in the block editor with a preview. There is also the option to change the size of the social buttons added to the editor.

For any buttons added using the block editor, there is now a vertical alignment option so you are not forced to custom add that feature.

More blocks have also added the font size op[tion, previously this was for mainly the paragraph block but the option has been included for somewhere it was missing, mainly lists and code.

Added to the WordPress site health is the option to update your site to HTTPS, previously this was a very difficult process that could cause errors on your site but WordPress has added functions to make this process that much easier.

There have been some less noticeable changes such as the admin color scheme being standardized to reduce the available colors to a more friendly amount. There are also more changes under the hood of WordPress to help improve your site.

Lastly, lazy loading has been added to iFrames which means they will not be loaded until the user’s screen gets to that section on your site. Since 5.5 WordPress has used this for images but this recent addition helps speed up sites even further.

    Good informations.
    I have a question, if there are 10-12 plugins needed to update, we should do It one by one or select all and update.

    I am facing issue, when update plugins, site speed went down. While in toturials you said keep update your WordPress Version, php, Themes and plugins, It Will helps to get better speed.
    But site speed issue comes in the way. Then there is need a lot of efforts to Speed Up.
    Thanks for easy toturials.

    Hi, your videos are always 100% and nice actually uplifting to watch… just a question: It would be great if WordPress developed their very own page builder like elementor… I know we can purchase it as I do, but how WordPress have not already designed their own amazes me

    My WordPress woocommerece store doesn't seem to want to update to WordPress 5.7…. I had to do a backup and go back to 5.6.2. anyone else having issues or maybe can help me out?

    Could that update to the lazy load cause a whole site to crash? Mine was down for 24 hours and they said it was my fault and nothing to do with them. All my images and youtube thumb links were invisible but after turning off lazy load I could see them. Then this morning my hosts sent through an update to their optimiser software and now my images and thumbs work again with lazy load on.
