Don't PanicI've seen some misinformation on the internet with people fearing that the upcoming major update to WordPress will break people's websites. This is not the case.Even after the change to the blocks editor your site will look and work exactly as it does now.

The HTML for your old content will not be changed when WordPress updates to

WordPress 5.0 release date has been postponed to 27th November, 2018. You can read all about the reasons why at WordPress.org The simple reason is that the new editor is not yet ready for production.If they have to postpone it again then it won't be released before January 2019 as December is always a very busy month for everyone. It's not a good time to release something as huge as a new editor when people are busy with running their businesses.New ThemeThe good news is that the beta version o

If enough people answer a question then the average answer is usually correct. This is known as the wisdom of the crowd.Here at WA we can access the wisdom of the crowd by asking questions. The first answer you get may be right or it may be wrong. But when enough people answer that question and hit the like button for answers that they believe are correct then the wisdom of the crowd should prevail.So don't rely too heavily on the first answer you receive, just wait a while and reap the benefit

Today I received a private message from someone who shall remain nameless. The gist of the message was that he had been following my posts for some time and that he really admired my work. He really laid it on thick.And the upshot was that he would like to write a guest post on my website.And the strange thing is that he didn't start following me at wealthy affiliate until after he sent the private message.I wouldn't bother mentioning this except that he has probably sent the exact same copy an

There are 56,000+ plugins available at the WordPress.org repository.

The best recommendation I can give you is to search at https://wordpress.org/plugins/ for the features you need. Check that the plugin
