WordPress 5.3

All Pressable sites have been upgraded to WordPress 5.3:

5.3 expands and refines the block editor with more intuitive interactions and improved accessibility. New features in the editor increase design freedoms, provide additional layout options and style variations to allow designers more control over the look of a site.

This release also introduces the Twenty Twenty theme giving the user more design flexibility and integration with the block editor. Creating beautiful web pages and advanced layouts has never been easier.

You can find more information about this release in the announcement post.

If you have any questions or run into any problems, please reach out to, and we’ll be happy to help.

23:36 UTC – Our systems team is currently investigating issues with some sites not being able to obtain an SSL certificate, which is causing “Connection is Not Secure” errors in browsers. We are working on resolving this quickly and will update here once this has been resolved. If you have any questions or need help, please contact the Help Desk:

Connection Timeout on limited number of sites

Once the primary domain is set and Production Mode is enabled, any issues you observe with domain redirects and missing JavaScript or CSS files should resolve themselves within approximately 10 minutes. Our apologies in advance for the inconvenience.

A very small number of sites may still be affected by this issue, however. We are working on restoring these sites and will post here once we have more information. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Help Desk:

06:12 UTC – Our engineering team is implementing a fix to restore all affected sites. We will have 80% of the impacted sites back online within 3 hours. We are exploring all methods of restore from our backups and will keep posting as information becomes available or every hour until this is resolved.

05:12 UTC – Our engineering team continues to work on restoring the affected sites. We appreciate your continued patience and understanding.

04:12 UTC – Our systems team is currently investigating an issue that caused some sites on our platform to become unavailable. This issue occurred as a result of routine maintenance. We have isolated the cause and our engineering teams are working to restore the affected sites as fast as possible.
