WordPress trends you NEED to know in 2023

WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems (CMS) in the world, powering over 40% of all websites on the internet. As such, it’s important to stay up-to-date with the latest trends in WordPress development to ensure that your website stays relevant and competitive.

One of the biggest trends in WordPress is the move towards more user-friendly, intuitive interfaces. This includes the use of drag-and-drop page builders, which allow users to easily create and customize their own layouts without needing to know any code. Additionally, many theme developers are now focusing on creating “block-based” themes, which allow users to easily add and arrange different types of content (such as text, images, and videos) on their pages.

Another trend in WordPress is the increased use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to improve the user experience. For example, some WordPress themes now use AI to automatically optimize images for faster loading times, while others use ML to generate personalized content recommendations for users.

Another trend that’s on the rise is the use of WordPress as a headless CMS. In this setup, the backend of WordPress is decoupled from the frontend, and the content is served to different channels such as mobile apps, smart speakers, or other devices using APIs. This allows for more flexibility in the development of the frontend and enables the content to be consumed in different ways.

Additionally, the use of WordPress for e-commerce is on the rise. The integration of e-commerce plugins like WooCommerce, which is owned by WordPress, is making it easy for small businesses to create an online store and sell products and services online.

Finally, the use of WordPress for multilingual websites is becoming more popular. The integration of multilingual plugins like WPML, Polylang, and others are making it easy to create a website in multiple languages and reach a global audience.

Overall, the trends in WordPress are focused on making the platform more user-friendly, efficient and versatile. As a result, it’s important for website owners and developers to stay up-to-date with these trends in order to create the best possible user experience for their visitors.

If I could give James six stars I would. I needed some help on a tricky website over the Christmas break and he was helpful, friendly, supportive and responsive – he was happy to explain anything that I didn't understand well (in a non-geeky way). Beyond the knowledge and skills, his interpersonal skills and rapport is great.
