WordPress, which powers over half of the entire Internet today, is getting better and stronger day-by-day with several new incredible features added to it after every update.
However, if you’ve ever noticed, most of the WordPress updates are either about fixing potential security issues or enhancing user experience. While 2016 was dominated by the discussion of video headers, hamburger menus, one-page (parallax) themes, REST API and others, WordPress has brought a lot of new exciting things for both developers and users in 2017. Let’s look at what’s trending in WordPress arena right now!
