This Week in WordPress #210

This Week in WordPress #210

The WordPress news from the last week, which commenced on Monday 16th May 2022

Another week, and we’re bringing you the latest WordPress news from the last seven days, including…

  • Firstly, sorry that there was no This Week in WordPress show, I tried really hard to make it happen, but sometimes events conspire against you, and this was one of those times. We’ll be back next week!
  • Have you tried the new Pattern Creator tool? It’s really neat and can help you get your patterns into the Pattern Directory. Listen to a podcast about it.
  • MainWP have added a cool new cache control feature to their plugin!
  • There’s a few deals this week, especially in Affinity desktop tools.
  • WP Tavern is hiring! Do you like to write about WordPress? This could be just for you.

There’s a whole lot more than this, as there is each and every week, and you can find all that by scrolling down and clicking on the links!
