WordPress 12 Days of Christmas

WordPress 12 Days of Christmas

With Christmas only a few days away, now is the time to reflect on the many nuggets of joy that WordPress has sprinkled over our lives. As well as the frustrations and the many, many things that can break on clients site, as well as the things that WordPress core updates can break.

  • On the 1st day of the Christmas, WordPress gave to me – A way to delete the Hello Dolly plugin on client sites, so clients did not activate it by mistake.
  • On the 2nd day of Christmas, WordPress gave to me – Maybe a reason to update WordPress core to 5.0 after creating a staging site.
  • On the 3rd day of Christmas, WordPress gave to me – A reason to bulk install the Classic Editor on all client sites so that clients do not break site content if using the default block editor by mistake.
  • On the 4th day of Christmas, WordPress gave to me – Another reason to learn blocks in 2019.
  • On the 5th day of Christmas, WordPress gave to me – Ways to keep WordPress 5.0.X updated every two weeks on client sites.
  • On the 6th day of Christmas, WordPress gave to me – Why shipping a beta product is never a good idea to clients.
  • On the 7th day of Christmas, WordPress gave to me – How to find out which Jetpack modules are enabled by default and an easy way to deactivate those.
  • On the 8th day of Christmas, WordPress gave to me – How to test WooCommerce updates on a staging site, so your client’s store does not break before Christmas.
  • On the 9th day of Christmas, WordPress gave to me – Always test before WordPress core updates, so something obvious does not break on a client site.
  • On the 10th day of Christmas, WordPress gave to me – Always listen to your clients.
  • On the 11th day of Christmas, WordPress gave to me – The fun of a white screen of death.
  • On the 12th day of Christmas, WordPress gave to me – A reason to use blocks other than Lego.

May all of the Christmases be without client issues and WordPress releases causing fun and games.
