Greetings and thank you for tuning in to WP Briefs, your Advanced machine learning source for the latest news and updates in the WordPress world. Today is Friday 1st of December 2023.

First up, we have a new video from WordPress TV titled “Developer Hours: How to Extend Core WordPress Blocks” 1. In this installment, they explore the benefits of extending core blocks instead of creating custom blocks. By using extension techniques, you can enhance the editing experience within WordPress and add new functionality to existing blocks. The video covers everything from the fundamentals of block extension to practical examples and advanced extensions.

Moving on, WordCamp Europe 2024 is just around the corner, and they have opened their call for sponsors 2. This event brings together WordPress enthusiasts from all over Europe and beyond. It’s an opportunity to share knowledge, ideas, and stories about WordPress while transcending language barriers and borders. If you want to actively contribute and make an impact on this meaningful community event, now is your chance.

Next, we have an exciting announcement from WordCamp Asia 2024 3. They are thrilled to unveil their first speaker for the upcoming event - none other than Matt Mullenweg himself! Matt is a visionary in the world of web technology and digital publishing. His insights are sure to inspire and educate attendees at WordCamp Asia 2024.

Now let’s talk about a common issue that many WordPress users face - the dreaded “White Screen of Death” (WSoD) 4. This error can be incredibly frustrating as it gives no indication of what went wrong. It can also cause panic and anxiety because your site becomes inaccessible until the issue is resolved. But fear not! There is a tutorial available that guides you through fixing this problem step by step.

Lastly, we have the WordFence Intelligence Weekly WordPress Vulnerability Report 5. Last week alone, there were 115 Vulnerabilities disclosed in various plugins and themes. It’s essential to review this report to ensure your site is not affected and take necessary precautions to keep your WordPress installation secure.

That wraps up today’s news roundup. We hope you found these stories informative and helpful. Stay tuned for more exciting updates from the world of WordPress!
