Welcome to the Post Status Draft podcast, which you can find on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, and via RSS for your favorite podcatcher. Post Status Draft is hosted by Brian Krogsgard and co-host Brian Richards.

In this episode, Brian and Brian discuss meta data in WordPress, including the challenge of implementing data into new tools, such as the REST API and the Gutenberg editor.

With the endless options of data complexity that’s historically possible with meta fields, the way these features are implemented into new projects has to be well thought out. There is continued activity with both the REST API and Gutenberg to make sure meta is well supported. There are several things that are worth knowing, if you are a consultant or a product maker in regard to working with WordPress meta.

Welcome to the Post Status Draft podcast, which you can find on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, and via RSS for your favorite podcatcher. Post Status Draft is hosted by Brian Krogsgard and co-host Brian Richards.

In this episode, the two Brians discuss the current conversations and controversy surrounding data collection and visitor privacy on the web. The duo dig in to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and what it means for you both as site visitors and site owners and, in particular, how WordPress core and plugin authors are (or should be) responding to the new regulation. It’s a pretty deep topic with many implications and ramifications. Be sure to follow the episode links, too, so that you can be best informed and prepared for when GDPR goes into effect on May 25, 2018.

Welcome to the Post Status Draft podcast, which you can find on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, and via RSS for your favorite podcatcher. Post Status Draft is hosted by Brian Krogsgard and co-host Brian Richards.

In this episode, Brian and Brian discuss the power of network effects and how they relate to WordPress’ increasing market share and maturity. WordPress has recently hit two major milestones, turning 15 years old and reaching 30% market share of the top 10 million websites, and we spend this episode reflecting on the innovations that brought us here and where innovations are likely to occur over the next 10 years.

We’ve come quite a long way in these 15 years. From the famous 5-minute install to being entirely pre-installed. From a supportive band of volunteers and vast ecosystem of free software to the commercially supported and highly-polished products that exist today. There is a lot about WordPress to be thankful for, and a lot of great things that will exist in the future because of it. And you can hear a bit about all of that on this episode of the Post Status Draft podcast.
