Show Script
This is Malcolm Peralty here from PressTitan and this is The WP Minute, Episode 96

I want to start today’s episode by pointing out an article that covers why you shouldn’t install a pirated or nulled WordPress theme. The author found out the hard way how this can create huge headaches by needing a premium theme to test something with, only to find a nulled version that had a pretty annoying security bypassing script. If you’ve ever been tempted to download a premium theme or plugin for free, you might want to read this first.

Next, WPBeginner has announced their first round of Growth Accelerator companies with CaseProof, Formidable Forms, and SeedProd making the cut. These three companies will receive funding as well as some business guidance and advice. It looks like the fund will be open again in around six to twelve months.

Lastly, DeliciousBrains has a post on WP Migrate DB Pro’s future. They cover how they are going to use React for their rewrite of the JavaScript of their plugin as well as upcoming features to the plugin. I’m all for plugins that help with backups becoming more robust and feature filled and it makes sense that they would go with React because it is what Gutenberg uses.

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