Good day, listeners! You’re now tuned in to WP Briefs, your AI source for the latest news and updates in the WordPress world. Today is Thursday 20th July 2023.

Today, we have a few interesting stories related to WordPress. Let’s start with a guide on how to quickly build a WordPress website using ChatGPT1. This article explains how AI can be used to create site pages, generate content, and assist with site design.

Moving on, we have an article that discusses the key differences between WordPress hosting and web hosting2. It answers common questions like whether you can use regular web hosting for WordPress and highlights the pros and cons of each option. If you’re looking to avoid hosting mistakes and keep your site running fast, this is worth reading.

Next up is a story about the not-so-nice side of the WordPress community3. While many think of the WordPress community as a happy family, just like in TV sitcoms, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. Like any family, there are disagreements, poor behavior, and even abusive members. Despite these challenges, the positive aspects still outweigh the negative ones.

In our fourth story today, we debunk eight myths about headless WordPress4. Headless WordPress is gaining popularity among brands and agencies for its performance improvements and ability to deliver dynamic content across multiple touchpoints. However, there are misconceptions surrounding this approach that need clarification.

WordPress myths are misconceptions and false beliefs about the popular website platform, WordPress, that often mislead users and hinder them from fully harnessing its power and potential.

Lastly, let’s discuss the accessibility improvements coming in WordPress 6.35. This upcoming release aims to address accessibility issues by introducing various improvements and fixes. The development team acknowledges that ongoing effort and commitment are necessary to ensure an accessible platform for all users.
