This is Malcolm Peralty here from PressTitan and this is The WP Minute, Episode 112
Matt Mullenweg has created office hours to listen to people talk about their concerns with Gutenberg and WordPress 5.0. He has opened up twenty-four slots over four days that will be fifteen minutes each where he hopes to connect with as many people as possible. As of this recording, all of the slots have been taken, and if Matt opens up more, I expect those to be immediately taken too. I think this is a really smart move for Matt as the community leader.
Have you ever wanted a dark mode for your WordPress admin? There is a plugin to help with that. WPBeginner provides information on how to install and configure it and provides an example of what it looks like.
Merlin WP 1.0 is here. It is a really cool onboarding experience. You have to check out their video. Basically, it automatically makes a child theme as well as helps setup plugins, widgets, menus and more. I really think that the automatic child theme process should be part of every theme going forward. Very cool.
That’s it for today’s WP Minute, thank you all for watching.
