With Thanksgiving mere days away, the virtual offices of WebDevStudios have quieted a bit, as team members take some much-needed vacation time to decompress and relax with their loved ones. However, that doesn’t mean things haven’t been busy around here. Sure, it’s calm now, but there’s been an abundance of hustle this month. Let’s take a look at the latest company news from WebDevStudios (WDS).

It feels like just yesterday when our most popular plugin, Custom Post Type UI (CPTUI), hit 800,000+ active installations. Today, we are proud to announce that we’ve now hit 900,000+. Incredible!
The world’s favorite plugin for managing custom post types and taxonomies for your WordPress website wouldn’t be what it is today without the ongoing support and development of WDS Support Engineer, Michael Beckwith. In this blog post, Michael shares what a day of his life is life, including the time he spends supporting and developing CPTUI. Give it a read today.
Take a look at what CPTUI can do for your WordPress site. Visit the plugin’s page in the WordPress repository.
We have a new employee to introduce. Meet Tanner Record. Tanner has joined our support team at Maintainn as a Support Engineer. You will learn more about him in an upcoming blog post, but here’s your chance to say hello to his friendly face now.
