Let witness the future of WordPress
WordPress applications have certainly garnered a lot of attention from various web users. Since WordPress has grown to be a popular and feature-rich CMS, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to see developers using WordPress for prototyping data-driven applications and creating front-ends. Be prepared to see various applications for website managing, content editing and more.
WordPress’s REST API has manifested the surge in WordPress applications. This API enables web users to make modifications to their website’s data easily. It will also allow you to develop separate apps from WP core, and services and applications that the WordPress core can connect with will bloom.
Global Admin Search
One of the big battles in the time that WordPress users have faced is its search functionality. Though there are different plugins available in WordPress, you still have to navigate to a particular page to search the required information. The OmniSearch plugins will remove the additional work required to search on a WordPress powered website and make it easy for the user to search everything at once.
User Interface will Certainly Improve
Have you used Calypso for any of your WordPress projects? If not, I would suggest you have a look at it. Calypso is an interface that allows you to manage all your jetpack-enabled or WordPress.com sites. Although it hasn’t completely changed the way WordPress.com website owners manage their websites, it indeed has brought a massive change to the WordPress admin interface. Besides, it is also imperative to mention that Calypso is not an alternative to your existing interface of WordPress. It is entirely different and connects with your website through the REST API.
You have to sign in to WordPress.com or install the WordPress.com desktop app and activate it. In both cases, you will require the Manage option enabled, and JetPack installed.
Gutenberg is in transit
Gutenberg is definitely a future of WordPress. It is an WYSIWYG WordPress editor with which you can edit the posts and website content with its new possibilities and features. It aims is to shun away the difference that web admin develops on the backend and will follow the practices to take the website visitors at the front end. No coding, less time, more content and image management controls and many more…so, for sure, Gutenberg is going to open more door website builders.
Advanced multilingual support
The future will definitely improve multilingual support. As many themes are available for translation and with plugins already translated into different languages, it is a hope that more results will be seen in this regard in the foreseeable future.
Since the inception of WordPress in 2003, it has never stopped evolving and changing. While various blogs and websites have been established with WordPress, the idea of creating a WordPress powered e-commerce store has been accepted by many brick-and-mortar stores. It has definitely seen tremendous growth over all these years with all its releases of versions, from minor to major.
Though every year, we try and anticipate the predictions of WordPress and its versions. But this year, we believe WordPress is going to bring considerable changes to the table.
