Watch the YouTube Video Above
As a WordPress Developer, it’s important that you keep your code up to date. The reason is simple, you want to make sure that you’re theme continues to work with WordPress and in all modern web browsers. Also, people may be using your theme on their website, so it’s important that you ensure it continues to be supported. You should never abandon your theme or code.
Keeping your code up to date is also important for the security of your website along with the websites of anyone using your code or theme. In the video above, I demonstrate updates I’ve made to the DevWP WordPress Development Training Theme. I show you all the code so you can easily copy it and use it in your projects.

What’s New in DevWP?
I also updated the version of jQuery used by DevWP but I did it in a way that doesn’t impact the WordPress Admin Dashboard. I also updated some of the CSS in the main stylesheet to incorporate updates in the Underscores Starter Theme.
Responsive Video Enhanced
I also improved the way embedded videos are displayed on the front end by making it fully responsive and look great in all screen sizes. When you place a YouTube Video or an iframe in a page or post, it can end up looking distorted on smaller screens. Hence why I chose to code a solution for an improved user experience.
Using a Diff Checker
I also demonstrate how to use the Meld Merge Diff Checker to compare files and folders for changes. This is useful if you’ve already copied the code from the previous videos or if you’ve purchased the DevWP WordPress Theme and want to easily view the changes instead of hunting them down. The diff checker is a free tool and streamlines your workflow when analyzing changes in files and folders. I use it to research changes in the WordPress Core, themes and plugins. It’s a great way to learn and improve your code.
