WordPress 5.7 Comes Out with One-Click HTTP to HTTPS Conversion

 WordPress 5.7 “Esperanza”(Named after musician Esperanza Spalding) is now available, with features like conversion from HTTP to HTTPS with a single click, easier to use editor and the ability to accomplish more without writing custom code.With new release conversion can now be accomplished in one click. After initiating the conversion, URLs in a site’s database are automatically replaced when the site and WordPress address are both using HTTPS. In addition, the Site Health section of the WordPress dashboard now includes an HTTPS status check.

Some of the other features available in this update are

Easier to Use Editor

WordPress 5.7 comes with the following enhancements to the editor:

Adjust font size in more places: Font size controls are now available in the List and Code blocks. No need to go to another screen to make adjustments.

Reusable blocks: Enhancements make reusable blocks more stable an easier to use. They will now save automatically with the post after clicking “Update.”

Drag-and-drop: Drag blocks and block patterns into the post from the inverter.

Do More Without Code

Site owners can now make the following changes to their WordPress content without writing custom code:

Full-height alignment: Easily make a block fill the whole browser window.

Buttons block: Site owners can choose a vertical or a horizontal layout for the buttons block, and set the width of a button to a preset percentage.

Social Icons block: Easily change the size of social icons.

New Default Colors

WordPress 5.7 has a new default color palette which is simpler and more streamlined. This new palette can be seen by using the default WordPress dashboard color scheme.

New Robots API

With the new Robots API, WordPress site owners can include filter directives in the robots meta tags. The API now includes the max-image-preview: large directive by default. This allows search engines like Google to show larger image previews, which has the potential to generate more traffic.

Lazy Loading iFrames

WordPress 5.7 makes it easier to set iframes to lazy-load. By default, WordPress will now add a loading=“lazy” attribute to iframe tags when both width and height are specified.
