I’m starting to feel like I’m going to be sick forever…

WordPress 5.0 Beta 3 is out and it integrates some features and bug fixes from the upcoming Gutenberg 4.2 release. It adds support for Custom Fields meta boxes and improves the reliability of REST API requests among other things.

WordPress 5.0 is still slated for release on November 19th, so if you have the ability to help test and identify bugs or submit code fixes, please do.

SEO Themes received kudos today from Brian Gardner for their release of Startup Pro, a Genesis Child Theme that features support for WooCommerce and Gutenberg. While not the cheapest theme, by any stretch, it is interesting to see a premium child theme for a premium theme get so much attention. Good job SEO Themes team.

Lastly, have you checked out your WordPress theme in other browsers? We typically take for granted that the themes we are using are cross-browser compatible, but there might be some differences in the user experience. WPBeginner has a guide that could help you test your theme.

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