🗞️ Inside WordPress News

Here’s what I saw happening this past week:

  • Mike McAlister shared an update of his Ollie theme that will add a ​wonderful onboarding functionality​. I suspect he’ll launch when WordPress 6.3 launches, but man… that’s looking gorgeous 😍

Mike knows this, but I’m a big fan of what he’s doing with his Ollie theme. I’ve used Ollie for almost a dozen new themes and it’s just gloriously well suited for so many situations already.

  • Here’s an interesting plugin I’ve not caught before. 10up launched something called ​Publisher Media Kit​. Love it.

  • Hendrik Luehrsen, you know, the man who wears lederhosen like it’s nobody else’s business, shared an update on where we are with ​FSE Themes in a Twitter thread​. Good read to see what happened in the past 12 months.

🚀 Performance

My favorite performance optimizing tools in WordPress:

Some of my favorite WordPress tools:

💡 Interesting Finds

  • Heather Burns shared this ​wonderful resource again​. Where $this = a masterful paper on the legal, political, technical, and multilateral issues that surround them.

  • Hidde de Vries (not related, and if you’re Dutch you understand how silly it is for me to even have to point this out 😆) shared a ​blog post about the impending WCAG 2.2 update​. Highly suggest you start reading this as it’ll become mandatory in the very near future.

📖 What I am reading

Content strategy is one the pillars we’re growing our ​ScanFully​ app and as such, I was researching and updating my knowledge on all things SEO these past weeks. This is a ​deep dive into Topical Clusters​ that I appreciated a lot. Perhaps you do too?

🎁 Bonus

The 81st bonus is all about CSS and position: absolute.

That’s it for this week’s edition of Inside WordPress. Thanks for reading!
