Last week we’ve acquired WordPress news site WPForce.com. Jonathan Dingman, who used to run the site, got too busy with his job and personal life to be able to keep running the site and was looking to sell it. We acquired it and will start to slowly bring it into our system. We’ve got some plans …Read: "Yoast acquires WPForce.com"
If you’re an advanced WordPress user, you’ll have “abused” taxonomies quite often to relate post types to each other. Now you might think “abused? but that’s what they’re for, right?” Well… Not entirely. Sometimes you just want to relate posts directly to posts.

I laughed when I read that comment, but then it dawned on me that most in …Read: "The honest Truth about Plugin Testing"
We’ve been working hard here at Yoast to offer you a Premium version of our WordPress SEO plugin with some really cool new features. But they’re not done yet. So we didn’t want to release WordPress SEO premium just yet either. However: more and more people are asking us for paid support on the plugin. So …Read: "WordPress SEO Premium: (pre)-release"
Our WordPress SEO plugin has been getting more and more downloads, bringing it to the top of the most downloaded plugin chart on WordPress.org fairly regularly. With that comes more interest from other developers as well, which is something we absolutely love, but is kind of impossible to manage properly on WordPress.org. Which is why we’ve …Read: "WordPress SEO Community & Roadmap"
For all sorts of reasons, some people have a problem with updating WordPress installs properly. I will state now that for both our free and premium plugins we do not support anything but the latest and the prior to last version. If you’re running anything else, we can’t help you.
