Welcome to WP Briefs, bringing you the latest news and updates from the world of WordPress. Today is Thursday 1st June 2023.

First up, there’s a new video available on WordPress TV showcasing the creative side of blocks. The video takes a look behind some of Mel Choyce-Dwan’s block art and may inspire viewers to create their own. In this session, viewers are introduced to the Museum of Block Art, where Mel and other block artists showcase their creations. We also get a demonstration of some of Mel’s block art creations and learn how to contribute our own creations to the Museum of Block Art.

Reflecting on AI for WordPress is our next story. This story is looking back at the recent conference run by Human Made, all about AI with WordPress. With AI being a hot topic in every industry, public and professional interest in it is growing by the day. If you missed the conference then you can now watch it on Youtube.

Moving on, there’s another new video available on WordPress TV explaining how to manage a WordPress multisite network. This tutorial offers guidance through managing a multisite network including an overview of the Network Admin dashboard, Network Settings page and creating or managing sub-sites.

In other news, after an unexpected delay WP-CLI has released version 2.8.0 with contributions from 66 contributors who collaborated and merged 277 pull requests.

Finally, Two-Factor Auth is now ready for testing as an opt-in feature on WordPress.org accounts. This feature is only for logging in to the WordPress.org web site itself; it does not affect anything else related to your WordPress sites or accounts.

And that’s all we have time for today on WP Briefs! Check out the show notes on the website!
