We all love spooky season, but this October has been no tricks and all treats for WordPress users. The much anticipated major release, WordPress Version 6.1, is due out November 1, and Twitter is feeling the love – well most of the time.
Check out our favorite tweets from this past month.
The fast and the furious
WordPress developer Nat Miletic talks about what really takes the wind out of WordPress sails, and we could not agree more!
WPEngine’s Brian Gardner waxes poetic about how much faster developing on WordPress has become.
WordPress core committer Jonny Harris wasted no time giving us the deets on just how fast 6.1 generates pages.
Teckhawks founder Kamal Shakoor is just like us. We’re always looking for ways to improve speed. We like to keep an eye on our waterfall and use Plugin Performance Monitor so we can see what’s impacting speed before customers do.
We’re all pretty psyched for the next WordPress version, and Matías Ventura over at Automattic nails down why the improved features in 6.1 are important for writers and editors in this helpful thread.
uSERP CEO Jeremy Moser outlined some great tools for WordPress content creators that, uh, maybe we’ll get for ourselves. *sneaks out of the Google Meet room*
WordPress dev Alek Asaduryan pulls no punches when breaking down online business success. Content is king, and thankfully it’s not a Targaryen.
We got jokes
Earlier this month, WP got rid of the Active Install Growth Chart in the Plugin Repository. HDC’s Brian Coords tugs at our heart strings with this community appeal.
Front-end dev Allison Tarr makes a case for lowercase (and even if we capitalize, we are right there booing with her over folks that don’t add alt text).
The “Team as a Service” Twelfth Dream left us in stitches with this dev meme. Don’t worry, back-end devs, we still love our unsung heroes.
Who’s down with PHP? Yeah you know me! WordPress developer MK had sharp words for folks who diss the language that the bulk of WordPress core is written in.
David Bisset at Dimension Media wanted to know your fave plugin. We’re kinda biased – it’s WooCommerce for us ;) We think you should head over and chime in, too!
We certainly couldn’t overlook this landmark occasion. Shout out to WordPress for hitting the big 100,000,000!
