Dan and Eric discuss their top picks for WordPress news stories of the week and the topic of professionalism. What is it — what does it mean for us in the WordPress community, and how does it relate to a healthy open source project and business ecosystem?
As a WordPress Code Instructor Jonathan Bossenger gets to work with the Training team and the WordPress community in creating technical educational content for Learn WordPress.
Expression Engine 7 and 7.1 were recently released along with pricing changes for the Pro+ versions — the core product remains free. This marks a new phase in EE’s development as an open source project that has passed through several hands without seeing a lot of development until being taken over by Packet Tide, the…
DigitalOcean’s acquisition of Cloudways is an investment in the WordPress ecosystem with an emphasis on “digital agencies, eCommerce sites, bloggers, freelance developers and builders hosting on WordPress.”
This is managed WordPress hosting — and has been all along I’ve been delinquent with posting on my .blog blog on WordPress.com for about a year, so when I bought into the Pro plan after the first recent price change the new stuff really stood out. I’m also pleased I upgraded then, because after they…

The Best Place to Break into WordPress Talisha Lewallen from WP Connects asks, “What is the best way to start and stay involved in the WordPress community?” WordCamps and Meetups were mentioned a lot. But my favorite came from Ben Meredith who said: “The support forums are how I learned. It’s a great way to…
Who is not using Local? Is it an Open Web tool? Let’s review some “Local history” and consider where WP Engine’s popular developer tools could be headed.
I’m not sorry to see Google Fonts and other sources of fine typography being dropped as remote sources for WordPress themes.

Today Cory took the lead on the Post Status newsletter release and joined Dan in co-authoring the introduction to it, which we usually share here. Some thoughts on newsletter integration, Newsletter Glue, Newspack, and the challenges facing plugin owners at WordPress.org in trying to determine the true size of their potential customer base.
WordPress success stories are great, but this time, you’re going to read about a failure. It’s about the Speed Booster Pack plugin and the depressing, constant decline of its active installs.
Since its arrival in 2019, Automattic’s Newspack hasn’t attracted much attention within the WordPress community, despite a decent amount of coverage by WP Tavern and some from Post Status. It’s been largely unreported on beyond its role as a flashpoint in the recent Twitter drama between Matt Mullenweg and GoDaddy. Even after Matt’s explanation in…
Debuting a new “Weather Report,” Ellipsis Marketing’s newsletter reports WordPress is down -10.4% — in something. Let’s find out what — and why it should matter for the WordPress ecosystem for years to come.
It’s still far from simple to do well — let alone do better — what was first possible in the Web 1.0 era, even before WordPress was born. Thoughts on “WordPress Lite” and “Create Once, Publish Everywhere.”
David and Olivia Bisset sat down for a chat with Matt Mullenweg about open source, Tumblr, and how Matt deals with negativity. Matt has three roles today: CEO of Tumblr, CEO of Automattic, and project lead for the next release of WordPress. He shares what went wrong with post formats and what he would love to acquire next if he could. The answer may (or may not) surprise you! Recorded shortly before WordCamp Europe 2022.
