Gather ’round, dear ghouls and ghosts, because WebDevStudios is brewing up something special. Tomorrow, October 27, is another Five for the Future Friday!
We are absolutely thrilled to continue to be a part of the spooky ranks of passionate organizations participating in Five for the Future (5FTF), an eerily spectacular initiative that encourages WordPress companies like ours to dedicate 5% of work time towards contributing to WordPress and open-source technology. At WebDevStudios, we’ve always had a soft spot for the supernatural and a strong belief in the magic of open-source, so we’re conjuring up some extra special spells to support the WordPress ecosystem that has nurtured us.
Is Five for the Future a Coven of Spellcasters?
No, you’re thinking of the movie “The Craft.” 5FTF is an initiative that conjures collaboration among the living and the not-so-living, fostering innovation and ensuring WordPress keeps haunting the web in the best possible way. By dedicating 5% of our team’s witching hours, we aim to contribute to the development of WordPress core, plugins, themes, and other open-source projects that make the web a more bewitching and inclusive space for everyone (even Frankenstein!).
Do I Have to Sell My Soul to Participate in 5FTF?
No. The way we see it, why should goblins and gremlins have all the fun? Everyone is invited to join in.
Participating in 5FTF is a chance to join the asylum of passionate developers, designers, content creators, and product makers. WordPress has thrived thanks to the collective efforts of a diverse and dedicated community. By giving back, we’re ensuring the supernatural sustainability of this incredible platform.
Everyone’s participation is a testament to our collective belief in the magic of the web and our commitment to making the internet a spooktacular place. Together, we can create a web where every click sends shivers down your spine, in a good way! WebDevStudios invites our fellow witches, wizards, and friendly apparitions to join us on this exciting journey as we contribute our time, expertise, and phantasmal passion to the future of WordPress.

For today’s #5FTF, I’m bringing back the BlogRing.
Yes. I’m serious.
Funny enough, WordPress has a perfectly GROOVY Link manager. Did you know you can re-enable it?
add_filter( ‘pre_option_link_manager_enabled’, ‘__return_true’ );
Why re-invent the wheel, here?
