WordPress 3.9 Arrives With A Smoother Media Editing Experience

Last Update: April 27, 2014

Have you updated your WordPress recently to 3.9? If you haven't, WordPress 3.9 arrives with a smoother Media Editing Experience.

Here are a few of the improvements that I really enjoy:

1. Improved Visual Editing
You can now past right into your WordPress editor from your Word Processor without worrying about the messy styling that you would usually get from before.

2. Edit Image Easily
It is now very easy to edit your images while editing your posts including scaling your images directly from the WordPress editor.

3. Drag and Drop Your Images
You can now just drag the images from your desktop and drop them right into the editor.

4. Live Widget and Header Previews
You can now add, edit and rearrange your site's widgets right in the theme customizer. In other words you can preview the changes live and only save it once you are ready.

I think WordPress is growing for the better and is making it even easier for us publishers.

What do you guys think of the new update? Would love to hear from you by leaving your comments below.

As of April 17, 2014 Ultimate TinyMCE update, it is very IMPORTANT that you are aware that with their update version of TinyMCE 5.3 the plugin will NOT function properly with WP versions 3.9 and later.

Instead, please switch to using their updated "WP Edit" plugin.

The WP Edit plugin is the successor of "Ultimate TinyMCE".

Also, here's a post by Carson on his take to the WordPress 3.9 major update:

Hope this helps you out.

what is not to like?
I like the fact that they are now making the end user experience (in relation to CMS not site user) much better. Soon a noob will be able to get most things done intuitively if they carry on at this rate...
It will push the value addd stuff towards content generation and engagement which is where it belongs IMO

If 3.9 is like this, imagine what we'll get in 4.0
