WordPress Melbourne – February 2018

Wow, a new year, it’s been so long since I went to a WordPress Meetup.

We are here at Launchpad 3 a cool co-working space in Cremorne Melbourne. The centre stage is built in a W class Old Melbourne Tram.

Anthony Provided the intro, and WordPress News, mainly version 4.9.4 is out, and its required to do a manual update to fix a bug that was introduced in 4.9.3 that prevented auto updates. Woocommerce has been updated to 3.3.1. And a bunch of Vulnerable plugins have been discovered, and flagged to everyone to update to reduce the risk of a hack.
