Why is Twitter Displaying the Wrong Image for Your Post?
(This post also includes a link to a Twitter Card Validator that “allow you to confirm which image Twitter will display before you tweet your link.” So that seems like it could be handy.)

“Twitter relies on Twitter Cards to display an image. Twitter Cards allow you to display an image, title, and description when you share a link on Twitter, rather than only the link.

“Your site needs to support Twitter Cards in order for an image to display.

“In WordPress, there are multiple ways to do that. Here are three options:

“• Yoast SEO plugin, in the Twitter tab of their Social section
“• Jetpack plugin, as part of the Sharing module
“• Add your own HTML markup in the head section for your page or post (best done in the functions.php file)

“The first two options are the easiest.”

Classic Editor | WordPress.org
“Classic Editor restores the previous WordPress editor and the Edit Post screen and makes it possible to use the plugins that extend it, add old-style meta boxes, or otherwise depend on the previous editor.

“By default it will hide all traces of the new Block editor and the Gutenberg editor including the Dashboard widget asking the users to try it.”

I have resigned as the WordPress accessibility team lead. Here is why. - Rian Rietveld
“After several years of working on WordPress and accessibility and being part of the accessibility team, I have taken the very difficult decision to leave the WordPress accessibility team. I owe it to the team to explain why I have made this decision and how I hope things can improve for the future.

“The last year, especially the last few weeks have been too politically complicated for me. It’s better that someone else takes the lead now.”

The Wix Mobile App, a WordPress Joint | Matt Mullenweg
"Anyone who knows me knows that I like to try new things — phones, gadgets, apps. Last week I downloaded the new Wix (closed, proprietary, non-open-sourced, non-GPL) mobile app. I’m always interested to see how others tackle the challenge of building and editing websites from a mobile device.

"I started playing around with the editor, and felt… déjà vu. It was familiar. Like I had used it before.

"Turns out I had. Because it’s WordPress."

TinyMCE - forced_root_block
"This option enables you to make sure that any non block elements or text nodes are wrapped in block elements. For example <strong>something</strong> will result in output like: <p><strong>something</strong></p>. This option is enabled by default as of 3.0a1.

"If you set this option to false it will never produce P tags on enter or automatically it will instead produce BR elements and Shift+Enter will produce a P.

"Note that not using P elements as root block can severly cripple the functionality of the editor."
