  • The preview.php file was updated to show a table of the old and new post titles rather than a list.
  • The update.php file was updated to only update the post titles and not the post content. It was also updated to use the wp_update_post() function and the update_post_meta() function to update the post data and add a custom field to mark the post as updated. Inline documentation was added to both the preview.php and update.php files to explain the code and its purpose.
