Hey there and welcome to WP Briefs, your Advanced machine learning source for the latest news and updates in the WordPress domain. Today is Tuesday 21st of November 2023.

First up, we have an article titled “An Introduction to WordPress User Permissions (And User Roles)” 1. If you’re new to WordPress, you might be wondering what user permissions come with each role. This post provides a general discussion of WordPress user roles and dives deep into the specific permissions associated with each of the six main roles.

Moving on, we have a post called “Design Share: Nov 6-Nov 17” 2. The Design Team has been hard at work on several projects over the past couple of weeks, and this article highlights some of their contributions.

Next, we have an informative piece titled “Editing Your Archive Template with the Block Editor” 3. The archive template is an important part of any WordPress website, and this article shows you how to edit or create templates using the site editor.

Now let’s talk about two videos from WordPress TV. The first one is called “From Vulnerable to Viable: Enhancing Your WordPress Security Posture” 4.

Continuing with another video from WordPress TV, we have “A Thru-Hike of the WordPress API6. This intermediate-level hike takes you through the endpoints of the WordPress REST API. You’ll learn about APIs in general, authentication, exploring different endpoints, and even creating custom API endpoints for your own use.

Lastly, we have an article titled “Getting started with the Command Palette API” 7. The Command Palette is a feature introduced in WordPress 6.3 that allows users to access commands via a modal.
