Felicia Day Launch

This is a screen shot from Felicia Day's home page of her new WordPress website redesign by WebDevStudios.

WebDevStudios is proud to announce the launch of Felicia Day’s new website,, built with love by our WordPress team. Felicia Day is a multifaceted creator, actress, writer, and producer known for her diverse contributions to geek culture. She gained widespread recognition for her web series “The Guild,” showcasing her talents as both a writer and actress.

Felicia’s work extends across various media, including television, gaming, and literature, and she’s recognized as an influential figure in the realm of online entertainment and gaming communities. It all began when Felicia notified her 2.5 million followers on X (formerly Twitter) that she was on the hunt for someone to redesign her website. Without missing a beat, we reached out.

“It’s so easy! This is not what WordPress used to be,” Felicia declares as WDS Director of Engineering, Mitch Canter, demonstrates her new website live on Felicia’s Twitch stream. Watch now, and learn more about why you need a website even when you’re a famous celebrity and just how easy it is to manage it using the WordPress Site Editor.

WP Search with Algolia Pro

WP Search with Algolia Pro released two updates in November. First, there was Version 1.3.1, which included fixes for mismatched details for Rank Math and SEOPress. Then, our team launched Version 1.3.2, which included improved logic for “noindex” detection with both Yoast SEO and SEOPress. But it was Version 1.3.0, released in October, that really blew everyone’s mind. Read this blog post for more information
