Hey, WordPress friends. Last week, we shared that WordCamp US 2020 was officially canceled (not just moved online). This week, things got even worse – all in-person flagship WordPress events will be canceled until at least 2022. So — don’t plan to see anyone next year!
Beyond that, there’s an interesting new service that lets you track a plugin’s search rankings at WordPress.org.
Let’s get to all of this week’s WordPress news…
