1.  SHINY UPDATES is our monthly non-profit WordPress news blast

WE BACKED THE WINNER

WordPress now powers over 27% of the web. To put that in context, Joomla powers 3.3% and Drupal 2.2%.

WORDPRESS 4.7

Version 4.7 brings some really useful new features. Preview and publish custom CSS via the Customizer, no need for a plugin. PDFs in the Media Library display a preview thumbnail. The underline and justify buttons will be removed from the Editor. Underlining text caused confusion as readers can interpret it as a link. The justify button had uneven browser implementation and could make text less readable. Developers will be happy that it finally allows Page templates to be made available to specific Custom Post Types.

WORDPRESS SALON AT NTC 2017

At NTEN's conference in March 2017, there sadly won't be a pre-conference WordPress day. But there will be a WordPress salon instead. The space will be open throughout the day, and include short sessions (like 20-minute demos or walk-throughs etc), alongside opportunities for one-on-one consulting, help desks type q&a, and more. The sessions in the Salons will run concurrently along the regular NTC breakout sessions.
