After the update for WordPress 4.6 was released I realised something: there are too many people out there who own a website yet have absolutely no idea about how it works. In this post I talk about what everyone should know when it comes to their website.
A fast and performant website is incredibly important. Mobile and tablet usage are on the rise, people are busy and increasingly impatient, everyone wants to get to content more quickly.
