Future of WordPress in 2019
The future is awesome
When it comes to choosing a CMS (content management system), nothing beats WordPress. And it’s not surprising that more around 76 million websites, among them many famous sites and business profiles, personal and celebrity blogs are based on this wonderful platform.
Because of cost effectiveness to less learning curve, the usage and customization process, from GPL licensed to multilingual support, the range of the benefits of WordPress seems to have no end.
So before we get lost in all this, let’s break down the future of WordPress into sections I’ll cover:
Security is part of the cost of doing business, like insurance, If you don’t know how to do all this, retain the services of someone who does. Security Team of WordPress, in affiliation with Core Leadership Team and backed by the WordPress global community, works to identify and resolve security issues in the core software and also provide security documentation for best practices for third-party plugin and theme authors.
Website developers and admins should pay attention to the correct use of core APIs and underlying server configuration which have been the main source of common susceptibility and ensuring all users employ to use strong passwords to access WordPress as well.
Three words for staying safe.
- UPDATE CORE
- UPDATE PLUGIN
- UPDATE THEME
If you not using a Plugin or Theme anymore
Keep in mind that…
“There is no silver bullet you can use to solve all your security needs, but rather you need to do many things correctly. Also, it is not a one time process but an ongoing effort.”
“On top of that, policies such as GDPR will make WordPress more secure as days come.”
The future of WordPress’ growth will come down to the next several months and how public outcry about Gutenberg is handled. No doubt they have the best intentions in mind and have goals they’d like to accomplish, but determining whether or not this step is the right move for the future of the platform is up in the air.
It’s obvious to me that people are itching for a change. WordPress as a Tool is less robust than something like Weebly or Squarespace, as far as our concerned is end-user interaction, but those platforms are also proprietary and closed-source, not to mention far more complicated than they probably need to be.
Gutenberg-Editor is for sure more complicated than any previously-proposed feature of WordPress and that will take some time getting used to. Nothing is as simple as it used to be even Internet is far more robust and complicated than it was back in 2003. This may, and I’m banking on it, be the beginning of an internet that no longer allows for just “easy,” but rather strives for “better.”
2019 is all about the Gutenberg with its official release and all the appealing changes stirring up many emotions. The release of the Gutenberg Editor with the WordPress 5.0 update will really a massive change in the way users go about altering and creating their websites.
You can update the content of the blocks and then arrange them according to your choice, altering thus, your website’s layout smoothly. Drag and drop the widgets all around the page and Feel free to rearrange them creatively!
The Future of WordPress Beyond 2019. In the web space of the coming days, WordPress will no longer be just a content management system (CMS), but a powerful framework that runs all kinds of apps. One, without which WordPress wouldn’t have been this successful, is the editor. WordPress’ WYSIWYG editor has been so popular that many users use WordPress for this reason only that will allow users to view changes to their content in real time. Also, users can add their videos, images and other media to their content and see how it looks on their own website.
