WordPress

If you updated your website in the past few weeks you should have seen WordPress 4.9.6 and with that update came brand new privacy features to correspond with the GDPR updates that became law recently. I thought I would take this time to point out some of these new features.

Comments

Logged in commenters will be given a choice whether their name, email, address, or website information is saved in a cookie on their browser.

Privacy Policy Page

Site owners can now designate a privacy policy page. This page will be shown on the login and/or registration page.

Data Export

Site owners can now export a .ZIP file containing a user’s personal data, using data gathered by WordPress & plugins.

Data Erasure

Site owners can erase a user’s personal data, including data collected by participating plugins. Site owners also have a new email-based method that they can use to confirm personal data requests.

Maintenance

95 updates were made in this latest WordPress update. Here are some of the highlights:

  • The word “mine” has been added as a filter in the media library.
  • When viewing a plugin in the admin dashboard, it will now tell you the minimum PHP version.
  • TinyMCE has been updated to the latest version 4.7.11
