Here's The Reason Your Wordpress Website Probably Isn't Firing from Sweat Equity with guests Damian Alpizar of 208 Monkeys, Henry Hollingsworth of

So WordPress is one of those things that is going to be something that's not going to go away particularly. But it's going to be something that has changed dramatically from two weeks ago, like or let's say, a month ago, right now, at the beginning of the year, you know, we're we're hitting a lot of technology strides. And WordPress is struggling to keep up.

It does have a lot of quirks. That's number one. And number two, it has a huge ability to kind of fail on you, the more that you customize it. And third, it has plugins that are reliant on the exact versions that you're you're that you know, the plugins are set up for the WordPress version…
