Serve Up a Delicious WP-Config

The folks at Delicious Brains have put out the ultimate Developer’s Advanced Guide to the wp-config.php file. I sure wish I had this years ago when I was starting out! Already found a few new tricks in here for this old dog to try out. Like did you know you could rotate keys/salts?!!?!

Keep This Guide Handy

I’ve been seeing a lot of buzz in Post Status Slack and on Twitter about WordPress 6.1, and for good reason! Milana Cap breaks down everything that is coming and what changes we can expect in the WordPress 6.1 Field Guide. I’m very excited about the accessibility and performance improvements, but honestly everything looks really impressive!

Digesting Twenty Twenty-Three

Another major inclusion in 6.1 is going to be the new Twenty Twenty-Three theme with style variations, page layouts, fluid typography, and more. Kinsta gives us a deep dive into what all of the features are and how we can use them as developers.

Keep Your Powder DRY

Brian Gardner released another amazing block theme for full-site editing with one-click layout patterns included. It's called Powder and is intended as a base for child themes and custom sites. Check out the demo. Powder scores a perfect 100 in Google Pagespeed Insights for both mobile and desktop. Get it on GitHub.

Cool Tool

Each week we feature one cool tool that can help make your life easier as a WordPress builder.

Lorem Picsum

When making a new site I’m always struggling for imagery. This site makes it so easy to plop in some photos and move on. It’s the lorem ipsum for photos, like literally! Thanks to David Marby and Nijiko Yonskai for gifting this to the world.
