What’s Buzzing in WordPress 💖

  • Managing Websites… the 20i Hosting has launched a new in-house WordPress Manager Tool that makes bulk management of multiple websites easy from one universal dashboard. Also, MainWP now fully integrates with Atarim allowing easy management of websites and visual collaboration for website changes.
  • Product Updates… MailOptin has added the cookie targeting feature allowing you to display or hide specific campaigns based on the browser cookies. Also, Divi keeps adding goodness; the latest one for Divi users is the all-new Divi Theme Builder Library that comes with the Divi cloud storage feature.
  • New Things to Learn… Google now allows adding “pros and cons” to product review – see how you can setup that with the RankMath SEO plugin and get more real estate on the search results page. Also, do you want to sell on Walmart Marketplace with a WooCommerce store? Bradley Taylor explains how this can be implemented.

New WP Plugins for your attention! ✅

Starting with a new plugin that converts classic editor posts to blocks! Also noticed these two utility plugins: this one adds ID column to the dashboard, and this one adds a specific prefix to every newly uploaded file to your website. Finally, I came across this new LMS plugin called CoSchool, looks feature rich off the blocks!
