Welcome to WP Briefs, your go-to source for the latest news and updates in the world of WordPress. Today is Tuesday, June 20th, 2023. Let’s dive into today’s headlines.

First up, we have an important story regarding the dangers of using AI-generated content on your website for SEO purposes. SEO specialists often rely on different types of content to improve their website rankings and overall marketing success. However, generating enough high-quality SEO content can be a time-consuming task. This has led many to consider using AI tools to streamline the process. However, there are several challenges associated with AI-generated content, including low quality, failure to meet Google’s E-E-A-T guidelines, and lack of originality. While AI content can be helpful for creating draft material, manual intervention is still necessary for perfection.

Moving on to our next story, we’ll look at how you can set up a buy one get one free offer in your WooCommerce store using the YITH WooCommerce Dynamic Pricing and Discounts plugin. This plugin provides a simple solution for implementing this popular promotional tactic in your online store.

In another news item, Tyche Softwares has addressed an authentication bypass vulnerability in their Abandoned Cart Lite for WooCommerce WordPress plugin. The WordFence Threat Intelligence team discovered this vulnerability and initiated the responsible disclosure process. With over 30,000 active installations of this plugin across WordPress websites, it was crucial to address this issue promptly.

Lastly, bloggers will be pleased to know that auto-sharing for Mastodon is now active on WordPress.com and Jetpack. Following Twitter’s decision to disconnect its auto-sharing feature with WordPress earlier this year, bloggers had to explore alternative options or manually share their posts on Twitter. In response to this change, WordPress.com announced that auto-sharing to Mastodon would be available starting in June 2023. And now it’s finally here!

That wraps up today’s news stories on WP Briefs! Stay tuned for more updates and insights into the world of WordPress. Have a great day!
