I think as a self-taught developer, tinkerer, or whatever you label yourself, the ability to find the information you need for specific coding solutions is the super-ninja skill. That’s what I do when I learn to solve WooCommerce and Shopify solutions I read about in Facebook groups and other online forums. In this post, we will see how to rephrase the display message for Products available for Backorder.
All commentary is by me unless otherwise quoted.
I enjoy reading this type of text-based Q and A interview just as I've enjoyed sharing many here in the OpenLampTech newsletter. Learn about day-to-day work and life as a security engineer at Automatic, working with a fully remote team. Workflows and challenges are covered in both work and security. Keep making WordPress safe! Thanks!

Guess I better tool up and start learning FSE. But, aren't shortcodes a WordPress staple?
Edit: WordPress 6.2.2 was released over the weekend (May 20th) to fix and patch this bug. (WPTavern shares more here).
According to the write-up, this vulnerability not only affects Drupal, but also Linux, Windows, and UNIX systems. In my opinion, file uploading and processing is one of those areas in development where it's best to exercise caution.
It's amazing that as big as the world is, WordPress (or other software) could also have its touch in your area too and you do not even know it. Unless of course, you start up a meetup. And that's exactly what's covered in this article. Create the thing that's missing you wish had existed.
Anything breaking or broken in a database is just frightening. I mean a corrupt MySQL table that is not functioning properly (or at all) can literally bring your application or site to a dead stop. Good thing we have articles like this for steps on how to repair such.
The Essential Addons for Elementor plugin has been targeted by hackers here of late. Hopefully, by the time you read this, all of your sites are updated and this is patched by the plugin maintainers as there still shows some exploit attempts with scanning sites that have the plugin installed.
I'm always nervous about my own sites and applications being vulnerable to Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attacks. This type of threat seems to be more and more common across the industry as a whole and has now found its way into another very popular WordPress plugin.
This is so interesting and so good for the WordPress space as a whole. A lot of times, for beginners and seasoned alike, getting up and running is the biggest hurdle. I haven't tried wp-now (yet) so if any of you have, let me know with a reply and tell me about it.
