December is finally here. The final month of 2016. How did your year go? Did you accomplish what you wanted to at the beginning of the year? This was an exciting week for iThemes Sync with the addition of some excellent WordPress optimization tools that will make managing many WordPress sites remotely.
- WordPress 4.7 is arriving in the very near future. Now is a great time to start making sure you’re using a quality WordPress backup plugin for all your WordPress sites. While waiting for the release, you can read up on a few new features like default starter content and customizer improvements.
- This weekend, WordCamp US is taking place in Philadelphia, PA. If you missed the opportunity to attend in person this year you can always grab a free online ticket to watch the live stream.
- WordPress CLI just reached its big version 1.0.
- DeliciousBrains brings a very good reminder that you should be processing your images BEFORE uploading. Don’t always rely on plugins or “on-the-fly” systems to resize everything for you. Optimization is done BEFORE an image hits the internet.
- Ways to find quality WordPress developers are unveiled over on dart-creations.com
- If you are going to be attending WordCamp US, make sure you say hi to some of the iThemes crew.
