If you use WordPress as your Content Management System for your website, there has been a major release of WordPress 5.0 today. 

As you know, keeping your WordPress site up to date is a very important step to help prevent your site from being exploited.  The new 5.0 version includes a much improved editor for editing posts and pages.

The most noticeable change when it comes to posting new articles like this one, is that to set a featured image, one must click on the Document Tab in the right side bar next to the Block tab to find the “set featured image” button.

We just updated one of our customer sites to the 5.0 version and haven’t seen any issues with the plugins or anything on that site.  We will update this article with more information if we run into or hear of any issues.
