Greetings and thank you for tuning in to WP Briefs, your Artificially Intelligent source for the latest news and updates in the WordPress world. Today is Tuesday 11th July 2023.

In today’s news, we have a few interesting stories to cover. First up, we have some unfortunate news for WordPress enthusiasts in London. Due to budget constraints, WordCamp London will not be taking place this year1. It’s always disappointing when events like these are cancelled, as they provide a great opportunity for networking and learning from experts in the field.

Moving on, we have an update specifically for developers. The July 2023 edition of “What’s new for developers” is out now2. This monthly roundup highlights the latest features that are relevant to theme and plugin developers. The focus this time is on the upcoming WordPress 6.3 release, so it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re a developer looking to stay up-to-date with the platform.

Next, we have a helpful tip for WooCommerce store owners. Have you ever noticed how some eCommerce stores display text around product prices to influence customers? Well, now you can do the same on your WooCommerce store3. By adding before and after text around product prices, you can create enticing offers and boost your sales. It’s a simple but effective trick that could make a big difference for your business.

Lastly, we have a guide on how to use Gravity Forms OpenAI for content moderation4. If you’re using Gravity Forms on your website and want to build a moderation system for any form, this integration with the Gravity Forms OpenAI plugin can help you achieve that goal. It allows you to filter content and receive notifications based on predefined criteria. This can be particularly useful if you want to ensure that user-generated content on your site meets certain standards before being published.

That wraps up today’s news stories. We hope you found them informative and useful. Stay tuned for more updates in the future!
