Beta Plugins – Future of WordPress
As an efficient content management platform, WordPress is continuously evolving with the latest technologies and also looking for adding the features that would be able to keep its visitor’s base happy as well as attract the new users on their site. Over the years, it also added some very popular additions such as Custom Post Types or Custom Fields and widgets etc.
Now there are Beta Plugins which are in the development for the possible inclusion in the future version of WordPress. These plugins provide an easy way to get involved with Beta testing WordPress. Here are some beta plugins while you have not heard much about them yet:
Two-Factor: Two-factor authentication has become quite popular throughout the industries like banking and even social media. In terms of reality of compromised data, the two-factor provides user accounts with that extra bit of security. In WordPress, they allow back-end users for further verifying their accounts through various options including email and the Google Authenticator app.
Customize Posts: This is the common issue with the users that when they create or edit content, they are not able to see the exact changes which are affecting the front-end of our website in real time. But the customize posts provides the functionality in order to resolve the issue and also allows the users to edit page and post content from within the WordPress customizer.
Dark Mode: This is one of the biggest trends which we are witnessing in the UI design in optimizing screens for easier viewing at night. This is available in multiple forms with mobile apps such as Google Maps which are changing over to a dark color scheme to coincide with the time of day and windows 10’s night light feature.
Preferred Languages: As we know that WordPress is being used by people all over the world. In this, although the existing ability for users to choose the primary language of their site is good but the software will revert back to English if a translation string in the theme or plugin cannot be found in the chosen language. Preferred languages provide users an ability to set fallback choices and also allow WordPress to move on to the next chosen language in the chin.
