WordPress is working on improving its features to meet the growing demand for e-commerce and business websites. The integration of new payment methods, such as cryptocurrency, will also make WordPress more appealing to e-commerce businesses.
WordPress is also expected to become even more user-friendly and accessible to non-technical users. More advanced features and tools will be added to improve the user experience and enhance the capabilities of WordPress.
The integration of new technologies, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, will enable WordPress to provide personalised and more efficient services to its users. By adding these technologies, WordPress will also be able to improve its security features and keep websites safe from cyber threats.
Have you had your mind blown by all of this information? Stick around, because what we’ve lined up today means some great predictions and some new updates.
1. Gutenberg’s Coming
When it seems like nothing could be better and WordPress has nowhere else to go, WP experts show you that you are wrong. As an example, Gutenberg is one of the upcoming features that WordPress users want to see. Gutenberg is something that WordPress will provide its users to improve their publishing and usage.
It’s a brand new, ground-breaking editor that provides you with new options to modify WordPress website content and blog posts. The goal of this editor is to make sure that what the web admin does on the backend and what people see on the frontend are the same.
Less time, more control over content and images, and no coding… As you can see, Gutenberg will have a lot of good points.
2. Improved User Interface
WordPress’ User Interface, or UI, is expected to improve in the coming years. What makes a UI user-friendly is its design, which considers what users want to accomplish on a website and contains easy-to-find, understand, and utilise features and elements.
When experts and WordPress co-founder Mike Little discuss the future of WordPress, they all agree that WP is rapidly rising in popularity and rate. It indicates that an increasing number of people who aren’t tech-savvy are beginning to utilise WordPress UI. As a result, everything should be done to improve WP User Interface and make it more user-friendly.
3. Better Multilingual Support
Another valuable feature of WordPress is its translation readiness. While there are several themes that are translation-ready and plugins that have already been translated into other languages, it is anticipated that more progress will be made in this area in the near future.
4. Cross-Platform Compatibility
This also implies that you may design WordPress themes that are extremely personalised and much more. Simply put, the REST API offers an abundance of opportunities, which means the future of WordPress has become much brighter. Imagine developing apps in any programming language while utilising the robust WordPress backend to power everything. It sounds fantastic, doesn’t it?
5. Mobile Responsiveness & Performance
Matt stated that making WordPress mobile-friendly is WordPress’s biggest problem. Before a few years, responsive and mobile-first site design were rare. In a mobile-first world, you can’t afford an inflexible website. Yet, there are businesses with stiff websites that exist.
WordPress developers develop a large number of responsive products nowadays, and the results are impressive. Accessing the WordPress admin from a mobile phone is not easy. You can’t do much with a mobile device.
In this area, more work needs to be done, and the more responsive WordPress is (especially in the areas that really matter), the more mobile users will use it. In the future, we can expect WordPress to be able to do more.
Something To Think About!
As I did research for this blog, I found out that there are a lot of new features and changes that I didn’t know about. WordPress has a lot more to teach you. I would like to get better at some of the skills I already have. If you want to dig deeper and learn more, I suggest that you do the same thing.
If you haven’t already, you might want to learn how to use HTML and CSS. I mean that it’s always better to know a lot about something.
Still, these were only my thoughts. And I think we’ve made it pretty clear that WordPress’s future looks interesting and bright!
