THE LATEST EPISODE
Ever heard of Gutenberg? Nah, nobody in the WordPress community has mentioned it at all this year have they?! It’s the most talked about thing in WordPress right now, and for good reason. When WordPress 5.0 ships at some point in 2018, Gutenberg will be along for the ride too, and it’s going to change WordPress in a pretty significant way. Now, I’m not too sure exactly what it will look like and exactly how it will behave, because it’s going through some serious iterations at the moment. It’s come a really, really long way over the past year and recent updates have seen it change even more quickly.

Let me introduce you to Bob Dunn (a.k.a. BobWP), ha, like that’s a sentence that you’re going to be able to say! We all know about Bob don’t we? We’ve read his many blogs and listened to his many podcasts and he’s taught us all a great deal. So this one was a great one for me to do as I have a huge amount of respect for Bob and all that he does for WordPress. What, I think, makes Bob unique is the sheer amount of quality content that he produces, it’s prodigious and it’s hard to know how he manages to create it all.
In this episode of the WP Builds podcast we get to talk to a very generous man! He’s called Barna Buxbaum and he’s the man behind the wildly popular template pack for the Elementor Page Builder called Katka. I’m always astonished by how people produce amazing things in the WordPress space and then just give them away for nothing! How cool is that? Barna’s Katka is a huge library of over 170 (yes 170!) design elements that you simply download and drag and drop into your page designs. There’s something for everyone, from ‘Calls to Action’ to ‘Testimonials’, ‘Pricing Tables’ to ‘FAQs’.
On the podcast this week we have not one, but two guests! They’ve come on to talk about the work that they’ve been doing to keep the amazingly popular WordPress theme GeneratePress up to date and relevant. Those two people are Tom Usborne, the lead developer from GeneratePress, and Paul Lacey, a long time user of the theme who runs , a WordPress agency based in the UK. Tom thought that it was time to add a new feature called “GeneratePress Sites” and it will allow you chose from a range of pre-designed sites, click a button and import those site’s designs and pages.
THE FRESH WP GOODNESS PODCAST
Chopped up like you would chop up a carrot, or perhaps a turnip... but not with a knife, because we, erm... chop things up with our podcast. So, WP Builds is like a big choppy, podcasty knife with lovely colourful hexagons.
