Today, WordPress released Version 5.2, named “Jaco” in honor of renowned and revolutionary jazz bassist Jaco Pastorius. New features in this update make it easier than ever to fix your site if something goes wrong. Read more about the update…

There are even more robust tools for identifying and fixing configuration issues and fatal errors. Whether you are a developer helping clients or you manage your site solo, these tools can help get you the right information when you need it.

We at jebswebs are particularly pleased with the addition of two “tools” that come with the new version of WordPress.

Site Health Check

Building on the Site Health features introduced in 5.1, this release adds two new pages to help debug common configuration issues. It also adds space where developers can include debugging information for site maintainer.  More about Site Health Check…

PHP Error Protection

This administrator-focused update will let us safely fix or manage fatal errors without requiring developer time. It features better handling of the so-called “white screen of death,” and a way to enter recovery mode,  which pauses error-causing plugins or themes. More about PHP Error Protection…
