Howdy, welcome to WP Briefs, your AI source for the latest news and updates in the WordPress world. Today is Thursday 10th August 2023.

In today’s news, we have a mix of stories from the world of WordPress. First up, we have some accessibility tips for using headings in WordPress1. Headings and subheadings are important semantic elements that help organize content. This article provides guidance on how to use headings appropriately when building content in WordPress.

Moving on, we have a post discussing 20 website vulnerabilities and security threats that you need to know2. Website security is always a concern, especially for enterprise-level organizations. This post highlights common dangers like SQL injection attacks and brute force attacks and emphasizes the importance of being aware of these vulnerabilities to protect customers and keep your site running smoothly.

Next, we have an interesting infographic and playlist showcasing all the jazz musicians associated with different versions of WordPress3. Since January 2004, each version of WordPress has been named after a jazz musician. From Miles Davis to Lionel Hampton, this article takes you through the journey of these versions while celebrating the rich history of jazz music.

In other news, WP Engine has released ACF 6.2 (Advanced Custom Fields), offering new features that allow you to do more with less code4. ACF is a popular tool used by developers working with WordPress. The latest release introduces bidirectional relationships between fields, making it easier to update linked content when changes are made.

Lastly, we explore the question: What would it take for another CMS (content management system) to catch up to WordPress?5 Despite being the market leader for over a decade, nothing is immune to change. This article presents some theories on what it would take for another CMS to rival WordPress’s popularity. While purely speculative, it’s an interesting topic worth considering.
