And continuing with today, Nick Diego, developer and main collaborator of Automattic, created a plugin called Enable Button Icons which allows you to add custom icons to the Button block in WordPress. This plugin, available on GitHub, is an example of how to slightly extend the core WordPress blocks to add additional features. Diego was inspired by another plugin that adds adjustments to the image block to display different images depending on the width of the screen. Although the plugin works well, Diego does not plan to add it to the official WordPress directory and encourages others to modify it to their needs.

And finally, an article that talks about the artificial intelligence (AI) integration with WordPress, especially through the generation of content and tools of limited application. The Convoworks tool is mentioned to offer deep integration with WordPress and provides support for OpenAI features, allowing an AI assistant to genuinely interact with the system. It is explained that OpenAI functions allow bots to send commands to the code in the form of function call responses. The article concludes by highlighting the potential of these integrative systems and mentions that further development of dynamic contexts and task definitions is expected in the future.
