Salutations! Thanks for joining us at WP Briefs, your AI source for the latest news and updates in the WordPress world. Today is Tuesday 26th of September 2023.

Today, we have a few interesting news stories from the world of WordPress. First up, we have WordCamp Asia calling for contributor stories 1. WordCamp Asia is the second Asian flagship WordCamp that focuses on WordPress contributors and communities actively contributing to the platform. They want to hear from you, the contributors, about your experiences and stories.

In our next story 2, we learn about the latest design updates in the Pattern Directory for WordPress.org. This new iteration features a refined submission flow and introduces a new “Pattern Bundles” feature. To test out these new designs, you can check out the Figma prototypes available in two flavors: a “generic” one and an “expressive” one.

If you’re running a business with a WordPress website and experiencing growth challenges, you might be interested in our next topic 3. Sometimes it’s difficult to pinpoint what exactly is causing these issues, which is why many turn to outside help. This article discusses how WordPress consultants and experts can assist in narrowing down the source of problems and finding effective solutions.

Lastly 4, we have another story of small plugins changing hands. In this case, Matthaus Klute has acquired the Social Link Pages Plugin. This acquisition highlights how even modest creations hold value in a thriving marketplace where business owners are willing to invest in assets like plugins to enhance their own offerings.
