While our website agency is always exhilarated by new client projects and the addition of team members, the virtual hallways of WebDevStudios (WDS) are also filled with holiday cheer. Plus, as the year comes to an end, we are looking back at our accomplishments and changes with a sense of gratitude.

In November, WDS kept busy, focusing on big website projects for big brands, while also giving back to WordPress via Five for the Future. Here are some other activities our teammates were involved with.

WordCamp San José, Costa Rica

WordCamp San José (WCSJ) took place November 5-6, 2022 in Costa Rica. WDS Senior Frontend Engineer, Alfredo Navas, was there. Alfredo presented a talk titled, “Full Site Editing – Temas Badados en Bloques, Patrones Y El Theme.JSON.”

This talk addressed the transition of WordPress development to a no-code solution with block-based themes, pattern creation, and full-site editing. For more on this in-person WordCamp event, read Green Geek’s recap.

From plugin versions to event rescheduling, some important announcements were made this month. Here’s what you need to know.

Pluginize Plugins

Did you know WebDevStudios is the developer behind some of the most popular WordPress plugins? We offer our free and premium plugins at our online store Pluginize. The following is the latest news and updates on our products.

Custom Post Type UI (CPTUI) Extended
CPTUI Extended released Version 1.11.1 this month. This update includes a focus on user experience in our Gutenberg block.

WP Search with Algolia
Version 2.3.1 of WP Search with Algolia has been released. This is just a minor update to fix an immediate bug that was introduced in the previous release.


At the beginning of the month, WordPress released Version 6.1, aka “Misha.” As such, we updated our WordPress Spotify playlist by adding a song from jazz artist, Mikhail “Misha” Alperin, to it.

Since then, Version 6.1.1 launched. Be sure you’re running the latest version of WordPress.


WordFest Live has rescheduled its event to December 16, 2022. You can read the announcement of this change on the blog for Big Orange Heart.
