WordPress, as it exists today, is quite a young product. In present day, it’s almost impossible to believe that WordPress has only recently entered the double-digit age, clocking in at just over 10 years old. The disbelief comes in when one looks at just how quickly WordPress, and the community and products surrounding it, have evolved. Today, we’ll be taking a brief look back in time to how WordPress products have evolved. Meet, Classic and Kubrick. Surely everyone remembers Kubrick, right? Do you remember Classic as well?

That’s what it sounds like via Joost de Valk’s post this morning as he announced that he’s looking for more help as it pertains to the community forums that sometimes can get overrun (I wonder if this article by ManageWP had anything to do with this recent announcement: Is WordPress SEO by Yoast Broken?): Starting in August, we’ll start offering a premium version of the plugin, including support (as in, you’ll get a direct email address and we’ll reply to your questions as soon as we can), at a yearly fee, starting from $89 for a single site to $349 […]
