What’s Buzzing in WordPress 💖

  • Got noticed… from creating a lightweight membership website to adding multiple conditionals on Gutenberg blocks, a lot of functionality has been added to the new Conditional blocks 2.0 release. Igor Benić has launched get active installs which tell you the number of active installs of any WordPress plugin.
  • Like Instagram… here is how Astra WordPress theme users can add visual web stories to their WordPress website and customize the look (to resemble Instagram stories). A cool new functionality, especially for lifestyle and food bloggers.
  • Selling & Funnels… Bridget Willard has released ‘How To Market Your Plugin’ book with a framework for developers to market their WordPress plugins. Fluent CRM is adding the multi-path conditional automation funnel feature making funnel building more powerful.

Extended WordPress Buzz 🔥

  1. Core Ecosystem… upcoming changes in the process to overhaul the WordPress theme review system (and themes quality). Josepha Haden Chomphosy explores the WordPress release process like release phases and more.
  2. New Features… Elementor Pro 3.2 with new Pro features like Paypal button widget, managing form submissions, and inner section widget improvements. Certificate builder to create certificates for course students has been added to LearnDash.
  3. Blocks Life… Gutenberg 10.2 with spacers to adjust the width between navigation menu items. If you are still using the classic editor, here are a few reasons from the stackable team for your Gutenberg switch at the earliest.
