Toolset 1.6.6 – Compatibility with WordPress 6.2 and Other Fixes
We just rolled out Toolset 1.6.6 to ensure seamless compatibility with the latest WordPress 6.2 version. It includes updates for all major Toolset plugins.
As with all major releases, our team has been closely monitoring the development of WordPress 6.2. Our priority is to ensure compatibility with new features and make sure there are no breaking changes.
Some days after the original release, we found a critical issue with Toolset Maps blocks preview on the backend when running WordPress 6.2. We fixed and released this as Toolset Maps 2.1.1 which is now the Maps version you should use on sites powered by WordPress 6.2.
We also found some minor issues in our other Toolset plugins and addressed them in the following hotfix releases:
- Toolset Blocks 1.6.7
- Toolset Views 3.6.7
- Toolset Forms 2.6.16
On top of that, this release improves Toolset’s compatibility with PHP 8.x and introduces some fixes and enhancements to Toolset Types 3.4.19 and other Toolset plugins.
What’s New in WordPress 6.2
With WordPress 6.2, the Site Editor (aka Full Site Editing) is finally coming out of the beta, with a lot of usability improvements. Here are the top new features and improvements:
- Site Editor Interface – Improved interface with a Template and Template Part selection upon entry.
- Block Styles Settings and Styles – Separation of settings into two tabs for better organization.
- Style Book – New feature offering previews and customization of core block styles.
- Sticky Positioned Blocks – Position blocks like Navigation Bars to stick to the top of the screen.

Of course, there are many other improvements across the board.
