Gutenberg 4.0 release candidate one has been released. WPTavern has the details. It looks like the new release includes a new font size picker, better pull-quote style variation and shortcode embeds that enqueue scripts to name a few things.

The second half of the article also highlights the accessibility concerns that were previously brought up, something that might have been better served in its own post.

Logging actions on your WordPress site is something you should definitely be doing if you have a multi-author site, especially if it is your main income stream. Kinsta’s blog covers the kinds of things you should be tracking and how they would do it using WP Security Audit Log.

CodeinWP highlights something I’ve been looking into quite a bit lately: serverless WordPress. As is mentioned in the article, it still requires a server, but what they really mean is a more static WordPress where the server doesn’t have to generate every page for visitors multiple times.

Now I know caching has helped reduce the impact of WordPress’ page generation, but there are aspects of a more static output from WordPress that is appealing to me, especially the speed and potential security. Of course, it does come with its own issues, and it reminds me of the days I used to need to generate all the static pages when using certain other CMSes.

That’s it for today’s WP Minute, thank you all for watching.
