Hello and welcome to WP Briefs, your daily dose of WordPress news. Today is Friday, June 23rd, 2023. Let’s dive into the stories for today.

First up, we have a story about exploring color in WordPress block themes. Colors, gradients, and duotone filters can have a transformative effect on your WordPress website-building experience. Discover how these elements can enhance your designs and make your website stand out from the crowd.

Moving on, if you’re new to WordPress Block Themes, you may be confused about theme.json. In our next story, we have the complete newbie’s guide to theme.json in WordPress. This guide will help demystify what theme.json does and how it can be used to customize your block themes effectively.

In our next news story, we have the WordFence Intelligence Weekly WordPress Vulnerability Report for the week of June 12th to June 18th, 2023. There were 60 vulnerabilities disclosed in 52 WordPress Plugins and no WordPress themes added to the Wordfence Intelligence Vulnerability Database last week. Stay informed by reviewing this report to ensure the security of your site.

Now let’s talk about a decision made by a plugin developer regarding support on the WordPress.org free forums. They’ve decided to stop supporting their plugins on these forums due to various issues they’ve encountered over the years. It’s an interesting development that raises questions about support systems within the WordPress community.

In our next story, we have a new video from WordPress TV discussing “WordPress and the IndieWeb.” The IndieWeb movement aims to take back control of our online identities and relationships through openness, decentralization, and ownership principles - something that resonates with many WordPress users.

Lastly, we have some exciting news for users of wordpress.com. Monetization features are now available for free! Wordpress.com has been experimenting with its pricing, and this move is sure to be welcomed by many users looking to monetize their websites without any additional cost

That’s it for today’s WP Briefs. Stay tuned for more WordPress news and updates. Have a great day!
