WP Engine, a WordPress technology company, announced the launch of Atlas Content Modeler (ACM), a free WordPress plugin to create custom post types and fields for headless WordPress sites. ACM integrates seamlessly with WPGraphQL, replacing the need for three separate plugins required to create content models for headless sites. Custom content modeling is a critical task for every enterprise WordPress project, however WordPress doesn’t have this feature as part of its core content management system (CMS). ACM makes the creation of custom content models easier:
- 3 tools in 1 – Create custom post types and fields in WordPress, and integrate it with WPGraphQL for headless projects in a single package.
- Easy to use – The plugin is intuitive enough to use right away.
- Advanced fields, by default – Developers can create schemas that include Rich Text, Media, Numbers, Dates, Boolean and Relationship data fields.
- Define relationships between content models – ACM comes with the ability to define relationships between content models, which adds both structure and meaning to content.
- Create custom taxonomies – With ACM, developers can define taxonomies that help their content producers organize their content in a flexible manner.
- Easy-to-use publisher experience – ACM automatically creates edit screens for publishing structured content immediately.

Brightcove unveiled Brightcove Marketing Studio, a new solution that gives marketers access to easily find, use, and repurpose video assets, which are costly to create and underutilized across marketing teams.
Marketing professionals are often forced to search multiple systems to find ideal videos for their initiatives, often lacking insight into which videos perform best or what useful assets actually exist. And, although 3 out of 4 marketers say video is “important” or “central” to their content strategies, more than half say “unclear processes” or “technical constraints” prevent them from using video more. Brightcove Marketing Studio provides role-based access to video assets through a team’s preferred social platforms, marketing automation, digital asset management, and content management tools. Marketing Studio features:
- Centralized video management: Puts everything marketers need at their fingertips, including full-length videos, social clips, and thumbnails.
- Integration into existing workflows: Pulls video into the tools marketers use for discovery and implementation in email, social, partner, web, and event campaigns.
- Smart search: Surfaces relevant videos for every initiative with smart tagging and recommendations based on topic, format, audience, and buyer stage.
- Viewer intelligence: Provides insights into video performance and viewer engagement, displayed in intuitive dashboards or existing third-party analytics systems.
