Our Three Big Ideas for 2022!

2022 is going to be a big year for WordPress as we get more and more people to use the new editor (and as a result make the editor even better)! We‚Äôre also going to be gearing up for a our 20th anniversary next year ūüėģ ‚ÄĒI can‚Äôt believe this project has been around for so long!

For easy tracking, here are the big focuses for this year:

  1. Drive adoption of the new WordPress editor (though education, awareness, and better content for new WordPressers).
  2. Support open sourceOpen Source Open Source denotes software for which the original source code is made freely available and may be redistributed and modified. Open Source **must be** delivered via a licensing model, see GPL. alternatives for all site-building necessities (through supporting Openverse, our suite of directories, and the way we present ourselves to the world).
  3. Open Source stewardship (through maintenance of our community programs, leading by example, and other project as we find them).
  4. Bonus: Get ready for WP20!
