Just some additional CSS to make Twenty Nineteen's content Full-Width.

How to Make Twenty Nineteen's Content Full-Width - Benjamin Intal

Tutorials | benjaminintal.com | 2 hours ago

If you’ve updated to WordPress 5.0, then you probably noticed the new Twenty Nineteen theme. It very simple, with a huge emphasis on the content and clean typography. It’s great. However, the content area is really made for articles and blogging.
For wide screens, the content is nudged to the a little bit to the side. This works well for articles, but for creating pages especially with the influx of Gutenberg blocks, the content area should evenly fill the width of the screen.
Twenty Nineteen doesn’t currently have an option to do that. But you can easily do that by adding this line in your Customizer:
body.page .entry .entry-content > *,
.entry .entry-summary > * {
max-width: none;
}
That will only widen pages and should leave your blog posts alone.
Here’s what the pages look like before:
Here’s what it looks like after adding the CSS:
Now if you also wanted to do this for posts, you can use this CSS:
body.single-post .entry .entry-content > * {
max-width: none;

Advanced Custom Fields and Gutenberg

Advanced Custom Fields and Gutenberg

Community | webdevstudios.com | 6 days ago

WordPress 5.0 ships with a new editor called Gutenberg. Here at WebDevStudios, we’re excited to build custom editorial solutions using Gutenberg and to see how the experience evolves from the classic editor. With that said, we’re huge fans of Advanced Custom Fields (ACF). It provides a robust set of field types that enables us to create flexible and friendly content management solutions for our clients. The time we save from writing, testing, and maintaining code with ACF makes it worth paying for an ACF PRO license. Our wd_s starter theme includes commonly-used content blocks built on ACF.
ACF 5.8 has added support for Gutenberg. You can add ACF fields to a Gutenberg block without any JavaScript code. In this article, you will learn how to build a custom Gutenberg block for hero area using ACF without writing a single line of JavaScript code.
Adventurous, right?
ACF and Gutenberg
To build custom blocks using Gutenberg, you must be familiar with writing Modern JavaScript using the latest syntax (ES6, ES7, ES8, JSX), as well as creating components using React. To see this in action, here are some code examples to demonstrate a classic “Hello World” example for

WordPress 5.0: What The New Block Editor Means for Elementor

Editorials | wpdeveloper.net | 1 day ago

Gutenberg is the visually driven Block Based editor that has been introduced with WordPress 5.0. With the latest release, WordPress has replaced its Classic Editor, with Gutenberg Block Editor which was previously available as a plugin. For regular WordPress Users, especially the mass people like Elementor users got in the dilemma whether they should switch to the new version of not as it brings massive change for the editorial experience. However, it is not like Gutenberg just got released. It was up on WordPress.org for a long time. But WordPress 5.0, which was released back on 6th of December, made it default editor replacing the Classic Editor. This particular event has boosted Gutenberg's development and landed it on everyone's News Feed.
Plugins for WordPress, like Elementor which sit at the Million Active Installation Club' had started developing its own plans to address the inclusion of Gutenberg into WordPress.

WDS Single Sign-On

Security | webdevstudios.com | 4 days ago

Single Sign-On (SSO) is one of those features every pointy-haired boss in the world wants on their websites. Managing user accounts and passwords across dozens of work-related sites gets very old, very quickly. The longer time went on, the greater the need for an SSO solution at WebDevStudios (WDS) became. I’ll tell you a little about our implementation of Single Sign-On using WordPress and Google accounts, and how it helps both WDS and our clients simultaneously. What is it?
In the simplest terms, Single Sign-On is a way for someone to access multiple websites using one set of username and password credentials.
The WDS-specific implementation uses Google authentication, primarily because we use the Google apps suite for our work tools. But WDS-SSO can easily support any standard OAuth service. Here’s a list of features we built into our SSO solution:
Google Auth support (including Two-Factor Authentication)
Client/Proxy configuration makes setup a one-time task
Enforces all sites involved to use HTTPS
Uses industry standard JavaScript Web Tokens (JWT)
Multisite support
Selective role maps (including Super Admin) for individuals and/or sites

As of December 1, 2018, Quick Checkout is now owned and maintained by Scott Deluzio. As announced earlier this year, part of our rebranding effort was to find a new home for Maps Builder and Quick Checkout. After several weeks negotiating multiple offers, we’re proud to announce that Quick Checkout has a new owner. Scott Deluzio is well-known in the WordPress community for his ability to maintain and develop a wide array of quality WordPress products. His current offerings include Privacy WP, Fullscreen Background Images, WP 1099, WP-CRM System, and his most popular plugin: Conditional Checkout Fields. Quick Checkout is an excellent companion plugin to Conditional Checkout Fields.
Scott’s customers know his commitment to high-quality code and technical, patient, and results-oriented technical support.
As we prepared for the sale of Quick Checkout, we ensured that any new owner would enjoy a new logo and fresh website. We’re happy to see that Scott has launched the new site with that new vision and creativity.
We also had a version 2.0 that was already far in development. As Scott indicates on his announcement post, he’ll be reviewing the 2.0 version and listening

How to Display Dynamic Sidebars and Widgets to Reduce Bounce Rate

Dynamic sidebars and widgets can help reduce your site’s bounce rate and improve your chances for a conversion.

How to Display Dynamic Sidebars and Widgets to Reduce Bounce Rate

Tutorials | kinsta.com | 7 days ago

Today we’ll be diving into the topic of dynamic sidebars and widgets (those that are content-relevant); more importantly how they can help reduce your site’s bounce rate and in turn improve your chances for a conversion. We’ll show you how to create a sidebar, along with widgets that show your visitors exactly what they want to see based on the topic or content of the current page or post. What Is Bounce Rate?
Before I show you how to reduce bounce rate by displaying content-relevant sidebars and widgets, let’s first define bounce rate.
Bounce rate refers to the percentage of site visitors who enter and leave rather than staying to explore other pages on your website. To reduce bounce rate you need to increase engagement, and this tells you much about your site’s usability. When a visitor finds your content useful, they stay and are willing to explore the site for even more useful content. This, in turn, gives you a higher conversion rate. The longer your visitors stay on your site, the greater the likelihood for more sales, sign-ups, and ad revenue.
Of course, you want them to stay longer, so you must have something that will stop them from leaving too

13 Reasons Why It's Time for a Website Redesign

Business | webdevstudios.com | 13 days ago

Every year, I like to recommend that clients conduct a website audit or have a developer perform one. The landscape of web development ebbs and flows and the internet changes so exponentially every year with upgrades in both physical hardware and coding languages that there’s a lot to take into consideration for your company, your users, and the growth and future of your business. The question always ends up being, “Are you prepared for the next couple of years, or is it time for a website redesign?” Here are 13 reasons why it’s time.
1. Your Branding Has Changed
The most obvious reason for a redesign is that your company’s identity has changed.
Circumstance: You throw some dollar bills at a new logo or a new suite of fancy printed materials. That’s fantastic, congrats, but your website still reflects your old logo or brand materials.
New identity updates are a great time to unveil a sparkly new website to go along with it. In an ideal world, you roll out everything all at once. But in the real world, you can roll your brand updates out in phases. Either way, get it done; update your brand 100% or not at all. Discrepancies can hurt your bottom line

WordPress 5.0: How To Keep Using Classic Editor & Disable Gutenberg

Tutorials | wpdeveloper.net | 3 days ago

WordPress 5.0 replaces its Classic Editor with Gutenberg. This sudden change can badly impact your WordPress Website if your team struggles to get a hang of the new Editor. If you are looking for a way to revert back to Classic Editor and keep your life as simple as it was previously, then you are in the right place. Gutenberg For WordPress
Gutenberg For WordPress is an editor which now comes as default with the WordPress 5.0 update. To some, it might be a great upgrade. However, chances are you might not like the Gutenberg Editor at all as it changes the writing experiences a lot from the previous one we all were comfortable with. Now as you have already upgraded or want to use the WordPress Bebo, you would probably think if there's a way to go back if you don't like it. Well, don't worry. As Gutenberg is rated 2.2 out of 5 on WordPress, there's high chance you would like to revert back to WordPress Classic Editor.
So what do you do if you have already upgraded to WordPress 5.0 and now feel stuck with Gutenberg? Why not switch back to the Classic Editor?

Filtering ACF Content Blocks with WordPress Hooks & Filters

We recently discovered a situation where we were able to find some fun and interesting ways to extend our standard ACF Flexible Content Blocks. Let's dig in and find out what we did!

Filtering ACF Content Blocks with WordPress Hooks & Filters

Development | webdevstudios.com | 17 days ago

Here at WebDevStudios, we do quite a bit with Flexible Content Blocks in Advanced Custom Fields (ACF). If you aren’t familiar with the plugin, ACF allows for the creation of a multitude of custom meta field types using a graphical user interface (GUI) in the WordPress Dashboard. You can do almost anything with these fields—from simple text and URL inputs to searching for posts and pages and building image galleries. ACF allows you to power your site with robust customization options, which you can use to create and manage dynamic pages. Instead of being locked into a set of page templates where the functionality and layout are tied directly to the theme’s files, building pages with ACF Flexible Content Blocks puts the power of customization into your hands as a site manager and editor. You can add, remove, and rearrange blocks as needed and have full control over the content within each of those blocks.
Sometimes, though, simply customizing the content within those blocks isn’t enough. Sure, it’s nice enough to be able to edit the title of a block or select a different set of Featured Posts to display. But, what if you don’t want to have to get that

Nothing has caused quite such an upheaval in the WordPress sphere as WordPress 5.0. While major releases are always a big event, this one especially made waves. The reason is that it ships with a much-debated addition to WordPress: the new Gutenberg editor. The editor has come a long way since Matt Mullenweg introduced it at last year’s WCEU in Paris. This week, with the release of WordPress 5.0, it will be merged with core and thus become available for all users (except those who opt out with classic editor plugin).
So, in short: big changes are coming to WordPress. However, what does this mean exactly for the platform, its users and also plugins like Weglot? This is exactly what this blog post is about.
In the following, we will go over what Gutenberg is as well as the main changes and issues it brings to WordPress. We will then talk about Weglot’s compatibility with the new editor (hint: it’s fully compatible) and underline it with a high-profile case study (another hint: it’s this very website).

Motivation
One of the key differentiators between Freemius and other popular WP eCommerce solutions that help WordPress plugin and theme developers sell their products from their store is our business model. Unlike EDD or WooCommerce which make their money from selling extensions, we make money only when our partners make money. This alignment of interests incentivizes us to proactively keep helping our partners with things like pricing strategies, business models, conversion rate optimization, marketing advice, branding & design, etc. If we can help a partner to gross more money, we directly benefit from it. As we keep doing those internal “audits” for our partners’, we noticed that many WordPress product sellers are making the same mistakes, when it comes to the way they present, position and price their products,

How To Create Custom Blocks for Gutenberg with Block Lab

A little tutorial on creating custom Gutenberg blocks without getting knee-deep in JavaScript.

How To Create Custom Blocks for Gutenberg with Block Lab

Tutorials | speckyboy.com | 7 days ago

Of all the amazing things the new block editor (aka Gutenberg) for WordPress can do, the ability to create custom blocks is right at the top of the list. This feature allows developers to tightly integrate their own content and layouts within the editor in a standardized way. While we lose a little bit of flexibility in terms of what we can do with the edit screen, we gain a more consistent UI. This can be a big help when training clients to use WordPress. Plus, it just looks cleaner than the Classic editor.
Among all this great news is a bit of a catch: The default way to build a custom block requires that you wade knee-deep in JavaScript. Specifically, WordPress uses the React.js library to power this interface. It’s incredibly dynamic, yet features a fairly steep learning curve for those of us who primarily work with PHP.

How to Use Icon Fonts in WordPress the Right Way (Better Performance)

Tutorials | kinsta.com | 12 days ago

Back in the early days, icons were readily available, but implementing them efficiently in WordPress was a bit more difficult. You could get around some issues with sprites, but they were not always a good way forward, and as retina screens started coming out, the problem was magnified (quite literally). One of the most common solutions to this problem is to use an icon font. Icons are web fonts or vectors, so you can scale them infinitely and a lot of icons can fit inside a single file, bringing down your request count considerably. This allows you to use almost any icon you can possibly dream up. However, with this, also comes some performance considerations.
We’ll show you in this article a couple different ways to use WordPress icon fonts, where to get them, and which method might be the best for your site.
Where to Find Icon Fonts
There are a lot of great places to now find icon fonts for your WordPress site. Just type “icon font” into Google will yield you some great results.

What WordPress 5.0 Taught Me About Stress

Editorials | speckyboy.com | 4 days ago

2018 has certainly been an exciting year for WordPress. The CMS celebrated its 15th birthday and released its revolutionary version 5.0, featuring the new Gutenberg block editor. It seemed like there was something new to discuss on a daily basis. A lot of it was controversial. As someone who uses WordPress and cares about its future, I followed the process to develop and release version 5.0 closely. There were all kinds of dramatic twists and turns in the story. Timelines for the release continually shifted, the choice of using React.js was put in doubt due to licensing issues and accessibility concerns arose.
So much was left up in the air and many of us on the outside were left to scratch our heads. That lack of certainty led many members of the community to vent their frustrations in one way or another. Personally, I took a liking to Gutenberg but was a bit perplexed by how everything was unfolding.
An Undue Burden
To be blunt, the whole situation was stressful. And, judging by the social media and blog posts I read, there were others who felt similarly.
For me, much of the concern was how this was all going to affect both my clients and workflow. Not knowing when Gutenberg would

Is PHP Dead? No! At Least Not According to PHP Usage Statistics

Community | kinsta.com | 24 days ago

You’ve probably heard about how the new WordPress Gutenberg editor brings block-based editing to WordPress. And while blocks have been much of the focus, there’s also another change going on behind the scenes that casual users might not notice – the Gutenberg editor is built on React, not PHP. That change, along with other shifts in web development, might have you wondering, “is PHP dead?”.
So…is it? Should we call the funeral home and start the preparations? Well, first off, it’s important to point out that there’s a big difference between wanting PHP to be dead and PHP actually being dead.
People have been calling for the death of PHP for years now (you can find “Is PHP Dead?” posts as far back as 2011). And yet, PHP still persists…
In this post, we’ll dig into the data and show how PHP isn’t close to being dead (even if you really wish it were).

Ok, PHP might not be the best or the most modern programming language. But that doesn’t mean it’s dead, and it’s pretty tough to argue with the PHP statistics here…

WordPress 5.0 is right around the corner with the flagship feature, the new Gutenberg editor, set to change the WordPress landscape dramatically. Gutenberg not only impacts how you write content in WordPress, but how developers build plugins for WordPress. Here at Delicious Brains we are working hard on the next version of our plugins, including making sure they are Gutenberg-compatible, but after chatting about Gutenberg the other day I thought it was high time I made sure my own plugins worked with the new editor as well.
In this post I’ll walk you through the process I took for making Intagrate, my Instagram WordPress plugin, Gutenberg-compatible, which will hopefully get you started on making your own plugins Gutenberg-ready.
Things to Consider
Although there is a way to completely disable Gutenberg on sites by using the Classic Editor plugin, if your own plugin is used on sites you don’t control (very likely if the plugins are sold or available on the WordPress plugin repository) then you will need to ensure it still functions a s expected with Gutenberg. There is also no guarantee that Classic Editor will be around in the future.
