Since WordPress version 5.0, a new content editor with code name Gutenberg was enforced over the old one which was called Classic editor. Gutenberg editor, also known as Block editor, introduced a new way of formatting content. It supposed to simplify the already simple process for adding content so for some people, including me, it is just an overhead. Perhaps total beginners will enjoy its “helpfulness” but this tutorial is obviously not for them. So let’s see how to remove the new WordPress editor, including its CSS.

PHP can sometimes be confusing when it shouldn’t be. One area of confusion is the issue with “duplicate” built-in functions. I’m always inclined to think that language makers probably had a good reason to make duplicates and most of the time that is a good assumption.
But is it always true? Let’s see an example of echo end print functions. Technically speaking neither echo nor print are functions but language constructs so you don’t need to use parentheses with its arguments.

echo "get ready: ", 1, 2, 3, " go";  // outputs get ready: 123 go
print "get ready: 123 go";  // print can't handle multiple arguments like echo

Since WordPress released version 4.7.0. developers can connect the third-party apps with the backend core through a REST API endpoint.

Version after version WordPress team ironed out the REST API imperfections, fixed bugs, and added missing features such as different authorization methods. Everything is great – for developers – but what about all those WordPress users that don’t need API? Well, they might need it sometime in the future and it’s there without an easy option to turn it off. The unused feature almost always introduces costs in resources and potential security concerns so let’s see how we can cut it out of our WordPress installation.

Is that the right question every new aspiring programmer asks? Or should ask. Well, I was the programmer that didn’t ask himself that question, and from where I stand now it was the first mistake of many I made throughout my career. I started programming on an old VAX minicomputer (in reality not so mini) through one of the many terminals in the university’s computer center. At that time C was the alpha and omega of all programming languages and the answer to the question above was obvious. But today, almost 30 years later, the answer might be quite different.

// C language example
#include <stdio.h>

int main()
   printf("Hello World!");
   return 0;
