Much improved discovery capabilities, making it easier for users to find what they are looking for. Better search means happier users, a better understanding of customer intent and ultimately increasing engagement.

An even more powerful Altis search

Altis 5 now supports custom user dictionaries. Now control how your content is searched by defining synonyms, stopwords and other information about your content to boost relevancy. This is particularly powerful when working with different languages without word boundaries, such as Japanese.

In addition to the above, fuzzy search is also configurable with Altis 5. fuzzy search still finds pages when a user makes a spelling mistake or simply doesn’t know the correct search term.

Block patterns

Speed up your work in creating pre-defined templates with the latest addition to the block editor in WordPress 5.5: Block patterns.

Block patterns make it simple to create complex, beautiful layouts, using combinations of text and media that can be mixed and matched to fit your story. Pick up a predefined layout or block pattern, add text and media and you are ready to go.

Inline image editing

Crop, rotate, and zoom photos right from the image block without having to leave the page. This can save a lot of time for the teams as previewing, editing and positioning of images becomes a seamless experience.
