WordPress Green 3.4 is here
We have just upgraded to WordPress 3.4. “Green” in honour of guitarist Grant Green, known for his soulful simplicity. Check for problems and report back.
Simplicity is a refreshing constant in the WordPress philosophy so we try not to clutter the OurLocality toolbox with too much stuff. However, with Green there a handful of new features that you might like to try out, but which we feel need some extras, so do read on.
First, see what the good folk at WP have to say as they claim that it could improve your looks, always worth a try and it is free.
Let’s face it the web can be a dangerous place. There are online scams. There are viruses. There’s phishing. There’s cookies, remember them? Crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle. While cookies are not likely to be exclusively implicated in any of the nasties above, because they can be used to personalise and improve the user experience they may also be used to gather information about you, by third parties, which maybe you didn’t realise.
And because most of us haven’t a clue how the web works, let alone change the settings in our browser, we all need to be much more aware. If you don’t know how to reinstate your home page, reset your default search provider or get rid of all those pesky toolbars that have insinuated themselves, then you need help.
You need Government to make a law to stop this from happening without you knowing.
