Strengthen Password Security

Password is one of the most essential security components of each and every website. Anyone who has been working in web industry for a while and experienced how it feels when the password’s hacked would tell you its importance. Notice that “Password1” is far beyond the best one. Even if it includes both an uppercase letter and a number – it still remains being extremely insecure, therefore it makes no sense. WordPress yet has taken it upon themselves to help protect its customers and users with generating difficult passwords by default. Moreover, when changing current passwords, from now this piece of software shows whether your newly-inserted signs secure or not. So, no more excuses left for your next password as “123123”.

Menu Customizer

In earlier WordPress versions creating menus would require users a lot of navigation. With the excellent change in WordPress 4.3 release, it is much more convenient and handy to edit menus straightly in within the Customizer. From now and on, it’s high time to restructure site’s navigation by simply dropping-dragging elements in turn. Though, having tried ones, this feature may drive you into philosophical debates with lines and patterns scrawling all around. To lighten your decisions and not to be updating pages thousand times, WordPress allows previewing changes before the page is published.
