Testing, Testing . . .


Talk about life at the bleeding edge.

This is being posted (hopefully) using Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon and the WordPress 5 beta tester plugin. This plugin incidentally needs to be downloaded and then unzipped and uploaded via an FTP programme to the plugins directory under wp-content. This is a fairly intrepid performance for some of us not born with two brains and seven fingers on each hand, but it can be done, so don’t give up !

First impressions are that WordPress 5 with Gutenberg is going to be better than it at first appeared some months ago. Given the amount of development work that has gone on in the background this is perhaps not surprising, but is good to see, and makes one’s worries a lot less troublesome. The word on the site is that the release candidate will be made available on 6th December.

See you on the ice !

Whoops !
