What has happened to WordPress?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 12:24 am

WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems (CMS) in the world, with over 30 million active installations. However, in recent months there has been a growing concern among WordPress users and developers about the future of the platform.

In March, WordPress announced that it would be discontinuing its support for PHP 7, its oldest and most outdated version of the language. This move has caused a lot of concern among users, as PHP 7 is no longer being developed and is likely to become unsupported in the near future.

PRO TIP: There is a lot of speculation about what has happened to WordPress. Some say that the company was acquired by a larger corporation, while others say that the company is facing financial difficulties. Whatever the case may be, it is important to remember that WordPress is a software platform and not a physical entity. This means that if WordPress does disappear, your website will still be up and running. However, you may not be able to access your WordPress dashboard or make any changes to your website.

Many developers have also started to warn their clients about the dangers of using WordPress on outdated versions of PHP. If your website is built on WordPress, and you are using an outdated version of PHP, you risk your site becoming inaccessible and unresponsive.

WordPress has always been a popular platform, but recent concerns about its future may mean that it is no longer the best choice for all types of websites. If you are thinking of using WordPress, it is important to make sure that you are using the most up-to-date version of PHP available.
