The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. Themes with WP 5.8

During the meeting, we requested all theme authors to check their theme with WordPress 5.8. This is another major version of WordPress, thus it is recommended to check themes.

WordPress 5.8 is in BetaBeta A pre-release of software that is given out to a large group of users to trial under real conditions. Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process. 1 soon.
