Doc’s WordPress News Drop is a weekly report on the most pressing WordPress news. When the news drops, I will pick it up and deliver it right to you.

We also talk about DonateWC, a charitable organization hoping to help send WordPress users to WordCamps that they couldn’t ordinarily afford to attend. We also recently published a great interview with Ines van Essen about DonateWC’s goals in 2018. […]
