I’m looking forward to lots of good things coming in the future on the new WordPress core Performance Team blog, and I’m glad SVG and WebP are finally going to be usable in WordPress by default. (This is already the case in some hosting environments.) But the forced on-by-default generation of WebP images when you…
We are hosting Two Weekly Post Status Member Huddles now. Huddles open time and space for our community of peers designed for camaraderie and connection for all WordPress Professionals, even if you’re not a member yet.

In this episode of Post Status Draft, Miriam talks with Post Status Editor Dan Knauss about her WordPress journey as a WordCamp organizer, agency owner, and web host founder.
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.

$635.5 billion…That’s “billion,” with a “B.” Let’s look at the size of the universe inhabited by our market of markets of cathedrals and bazaars: the WordPress ecosystem. How should we think about WordPress’s market share or, maybe more accurately, its shares? Are we selling them short and dampening growth?
Coming soon: the Post Status Index, an EMEA Huddle requested by our European members, and my talk about the importance of taking time off. Also, our door is always open for members of Underrepresented in Tech and anyone who finds the cost of membership a barrier to joining us. If you work professionally in WordPress or want to, we want you here!
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.
Get the scoop on planning for the WordPress 6.1 release, and help test its proposed plugin Rollback feature. There are also many calls for feedback from the Performance team and Five for the Future.
High-level spats in the WordPress business ecosystem are a reality, but on Twitter, they become low-level competitive exchanges. Maybe they could be moved into more private conversations without character limits if the goal is to resolve conflicts rather than intensify them.
Jessica Frick is the Director of Operations for Pressable, where she’s focused on creating the best managed WordPress hosting experience possible.
What if WordPress, growing as an operating system for the web, spawns distributions and spins, like Linux? What do nine years of Jetpack teach us about Automattic and WordPress — the project and the dot-com? Rethinking how we think about SaaS, hosting, and the WordPress ecosystem…
Bug fixes and Beta releases. Back from WCEU, Bob wonders when we’ll see another WooConf. Pagely hints their Managed Woo platform will be released soon.
