Earlier this week WordPress announced the release of WordPress 3.2, Beta 1. Some of the changes that are coming are:
1) If you have WordPress on most shared hosting environments, especially GoDaddy.com then you’re biggest complaint is usually the speed of your site. WordPress is eluding to performance improvements which will make your WordPress site run faster in version 3.2.
2) WP-Admin will be getting some visual upgrades but no details have been released yet.
3) The visual editor’s full-screen composing experience has gotten a major overhaul, and is now available from HTML mode, too.
In the beginning of May Google announced that you would now be able to monitor page load time in the new version of Google Analytics. You will now have the ability to see which pages are loading the slowest and you can even break it down to what browsers load the slowest and what parts of the World load the slowest.
The first thing you need to do to be able to measure load time is to make a slight modification to your Google Analytics pixel.
This week we learned about the closing of HIT Web Design and hosting in Provo, Utah. After 972 Better Business Bureau complaints against their company it was probably the right decision. However, what if you’re one of their clients who depend on their servers to host your website. You’re probably wondering what to do to make sure your business is not impacted.
- Back up all of your website files and databases.
- If you currently only use webmail to check your email, setup a desktop email client such as Microsoft Outlook or Mac Mail and download all of your email.
- If your current company is known to run unauthorized charges against credit cards then change your credit card immediately to prevent them from charging you one more time before you get away.
If you don’t know how to back up your website or configure a desktop email client feel free to contact us and we’ll be glad to assist!
