WordPress is the key technology tool for many companies. They use it for marketing, e-commerce, CRM and 1,001 other tasks. So, it's not surprising that a lot of WordPress users also rely on it for project management.
After all, if you allow customers to pay you on your WordPress site, or raise a support ticket there, why not also collaborate on projects using the same platform.
In this overview, we'll introduce you to 5 of the best WordPress project management plugins. All 5 have free versions available on WordPress.org. You can download them, test them, and see if they're a good fit for you and your projects.
CSS Grid is revolutionizing the frontend web-design industry.
For the last 20 years, web designers have used CSS to lay out web pages. However, CSS has always been missing some key functionality. Designers had to rely on workarounds, such as tables, floats, and positioning.
Isn't it crazy that our main layout tool was so reliant on hacks and misused features?

Yes, WordPress is going to have a new editor called "Gutenberg".
Up until now, the Gutenberg developers made slow and steady progress. Every two weeks, they released a new version. Each Gutenberg update had more features, more polish, and fewers bugs.
But, we knew almost nothing about when Gutenberg would become WordPress.
Now we know. Last week, we got more Gutenberg news than we did in the rest of 2018 combined. We got timetables, roadmaps, and technical breakdowns. We even got tantilizing glimpses into Phases 2, 3 and 4 of the Gutenberg project.
I'm going to give you a short summary of everything Matt and the WordPress team announced.
Sometimes we're able to give really clear advice: "Do this!" or "Don't do that!"

Drupal gives you the ability to re-use fields. If you have an "Image" field, you could choose to use that same field on every content type on your site. However, it's not always clear whether re-using fields is a good idea. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't.
Here's an overview of the advantages and disadvantages to consider before re-using Drupal fields.
Let me give credit where credit is due. The Drupal community is really getting organized in 2018.
In years gone by, Drupal has succeeded despite not having a clear direction. Everything was done in a stereotypically "open source" way with loose roadmaps. The apex of this was the development of Drupal 8 which dragged on for over 5 years.
This disorganizaton continued even after the release of Drupal 8. Early last year, I wrote a post asking, "When is Drupal 7 End-of-Life?" Unfortunately, no-one knew the answer. The deeper I looked, the more messy and confusing Drupal's plans became. The release cycles for Drupal 7, 8 and 9 were all vague and undefined.
