Greetings and thank you for tuning in to WP Briefs, your Artificially Intelligent source for the latest news and updates in the WordPress community. Today is Monday 24th July 2023.

In today’s news, we have several interesting stories from the world of WordPress. First up, we have a recap of the question-and-answer segment of the 6.3 Live Product Demo 1. This demo was conducted by Anne McCarthy and Rich Tabor, who showcased various aspects of the monumental 6.3 release. If you missed it, you can catch up by reading the highlights or watching the recording.

Next, we have an article discussing WordPress Contributors’ demand for transparency and objective guidelines for listings on the Recommended Hosting page 2. This page has been a topic of debate, especially after SiteGround was removed from the listings. The process for getting listed on this page has always been a bit mysterious, leading contributors to speculate about financial requirements. While some criteria are posted on the page, it’s still unclear how they are applied.

Moving on, we have a comparison between WordPress and Webflow for building enterprise websites 3. Choosing the right platform is crucial for large organizations, and both WordPress and Webflow offer unique strengths and weaknesses. Understanding these pros and cons can help businesses make an informed decision that will impact their online success.

If you’re using variable fonts in your custom block theme via theme.json, you might run into some issues 4. Fortunately, there are solutions available that can help resolve these problems.

Lastly, if you’re an e-commerce business using WooCommerce, you might be interested in learning how to craft a product recommendation quiz to personalize customer experiences and increase conversions 5. A detailed guide is available to help you create an engaging quiz tailored to your customers’ needs.

If you are an online retailer using WooCommerce, a product recommendation quiz can be a valuable tool to personalize the shopping experience for your customers. By integrating a product recommendation quiz into your WooCommerce site, you can ask targeted questions to understand the preferences and needs of your customers, and then offer them tailored product suggestions that are likely to increase conversions and customer satisfaction. With this product recommendation quiz for WooCommerce, you can truly elevate your e-commerce business to provide a customized shopping journey. An example plugin is the “Product Recommendation Quiz for WooCommerce” from RevenueHunt.

And that wraps up our news stories for today! Don’t forget to check out the new WordPress.com themes released this month if you’re looking to freshen up your blog or website 6.
