Successfully Leading a Remote Work Team

There are so many benefits to leading a remote work team, and any challenges can be overcome with the right tools, processes, or policies. Use these tips and words of wisdom to successfully lead a remote work team.

Successfully Leading a Remote Work Team

Business | webdevstudios.com | 21 hour ago

Here at WebDevStudios (WDS), we are passionate about WordPress, the success of our clients, and remote work. Being a completely distributed company, we have the opportunity to hire the best of the best regardless of location because we work from home. While distributed employees are the future, a company has to be open to new policies, processes and tools in order to make the effort successful. Below is my advice for leading a remote work team and maintaining effective productivity throughout the workweek from home. In a corporate office, far, far away…
Cubicles debuted in corporate offices during the 1960s and are now present in every high rise office across the world. I worked in a cubicle right out of college then moved to a nice corner office until about six years ago when I started at WDS.
Working remotely was completely new to me, but I quickly fell in love with this way of working. Now, I don’t think I could ever go back to a cubicle. Is it time for companies to change their thinking about how teams can work effectively and still be productive? The answer is yes! Our corporate world has had the ability to work from outside of an office for a few decades, yet working

Avoid Free WordPress Themes, But Why?

Community | solwininfotech.com | 2 hours ago

WordPress is a fantastic platform for setting up your website, especially if you want a blog. It has so many themes and plugins that you can use to improve the functionality of your site. You have the option of paid and free ones and may get the urge to go for the later. When beginning, you may feel that it is not worth investing in paid themes before your website picks up. However, this may not actually be the best move, especially if you are downloading the plugins from other sources. We are not in any way, saying that you cannot take advantage of the free themes that you will find in the WordPress theme directory. You must, however, be aware of the fact that they do have some disadvantages. Like anything else in this life, you get what you pay for. Going for the free versions may work for some time, but may cost you more down the line. We will closely look at some of the key reasons why you need to stay away from free WordPress themes in the article below.

How to Make Money on Fiverr: Exact Steps I Took to Make $2-3k / Month

How to Make Money on Fiverr: Exact Steps I Took to Make $2-3k / Month

Business | codeinwp.com | 8 days ago

How to make money on Fiverr – how I make $2,000-$3,000 each month I’ve been on Fiverr since June 2015.
I honestly wouldn’t have even considered it if not for the guidance of my mentor and first big client when I started freelancing full-time. He’d been using it to sell social media management packages that he eventually converted to long-term client relationships.
With 4.5 years on the platform, I’ve seen Fiverr grow from having a bad reputation that stemmed from making every order start at $5, to a diverse marketplace of talented individuals who have learned how to make money on Fiverr by charging according to their skills and experience.
Between June 2015 and the date of this article’s publication, there’s been some variance in terms of how much work I’ve actually done through the platform. But I never left completely or went on an extended break, always maintaining a consistent presence.
It’s this consistency that’s helped me move up from one seller level to another.
I’m both a “Top Rated Seller” and a member of the Pro marketplace, which effectively puts me on the top of the totem pole for getting my Gigs

What Is "Headless" WordPress?

An introduction to headless configurations, along with some helpful resources to get you started.

What Is "Headless" WordPress?

There are plenty of reasons why WordPress is the most popular CMS on the planet. Chief among them are its general ease-of-use and flexibility. Both of these attributes are keys to the rise of the “headless” WordPress trend. That is, using a WordPress back end to feed content to an outside, non-WordPress application. While that may sound a bit confusing – not to worry! Today, we’ll introduce you to the headless concept and the types of things you can do with it.
From WordPress to Anywhere
Think of a headless WordPress setup the same as, well, any other installation of the CMS. You install it just as you normally would. You log into the Dashboard and create pages or posts the same as always.
The main difference? You aren’t depending on WordPress to display the public-facing front end of your website. Instead, the content you create is meant to be used somewhere else. In essence, this could be just about anywhere. But among the most popular uses are:
Mobile apps;
Progressive web applications using JavaScript libraries such as React;
Static websites;
There are several advantages to this approach. For one, it allows content creators to use a familiar tool. They

Things Not to Save on When Starting Your WordPress Site

Community | webfactoryltd.com | 7 hours ago

T Building a website nowadays isn’t as difficult or as expensive as it once was, but being able to develop a website at a low price doesn’t mean that no investments need to be made in order for that website to be a good and successful one.
Every site consists of crucial aspects that will determine its quality and performance. Cutting corners on those aspects could lead to costly issues appearing in the future.
You have a lot to prepare before you launch your site, but don’t panic. In this article, we have made a list of things that you should never save money on when starting a WordPress site. So let’s see what they are.
Hosting
If you manage to build a site without spending any money, hosting that website is where the first expenses will come in. Everyone knows that a website needs hosting, but not everyone makes sure that their hosting is good. Hosting can be the deciding factor if your site will fail or succeed. It will determine how well your content is displayed, how fast your site loads, and its uptime.
People nowadays see high uptime and fast loading as a standard, and any site that doesn’t meet that standard isn’t one they are willing to visit

Using Technology for Crisis Management

Are you, your organization, and your website ready to handle a crisis? Here, one of our backend engineers, who has experience with crisis management, offers some great tips and insight.

Using Technology for Crisis Management

Business | webdevstudios.com | 3 days ago

What Is a Crisis? A crisis is a time of intense difficulty, trouble, or danger. By this definition, a crisis one faces can be as simple as being short-staffed one night to an extreme of requiring emergency response to a tragic event. When presented with a crisis, how quickly and how effectively you respond to it makes a dramatic impact on how you and your organization make it out on the other end of it, placing a great importance on having an effective plan and using the right technology for crisis management.
Responding to Crisis
In September 2017, Hurricane Dorian, a Category 5 hurricane, ravaged through Puerto Rico and other islands in the Caribbean sea, displacing hundreds of thousands of Americans and causing a record-setting amount of damage estimated at over 90 billion dollars. In the aftermath of the storm, nearly 180,000 Americans migrated from Puerto Rico to the US mainland with nearly one third of them ending up in central and southern Florida.
To help respond to a rapid increase of those needing assistance in Central Florida, the Episcopal Office of Latino Assistance (EOLA) was formed to help families find work and transition into permanent housing in the wake of the storm.

Tips for Organizing a WordPress Meetup

Tips for Organizing a WordPress Meetup

Community | webdevstudios.com | 11 days ago

There are currently over 1600 WordPress Meetups, and that number continues to grow. Attending a Meetup event is a good way to become involved with your local WordPress community. An even better way is to start organizing a WordPress Meetup! When you are an organizer, people automatically engage with you more and you learn so much. What Is a WordPress Meetup?
A WordPress Meetup event can take on a variety of forms, from casual coffee to a formal presentation and everything in between. At its heart, though, a WordPress meetup is a gathering of people interested in WordPress who want to meet others in their local community. There is no experience required and members include developers, designers, marketers, content creators, end-users, professionals, hobbyists, etc.
Like WordPress, meetups are open-source, too, in that anyone can organize an event. You don’t have to be listed as the official meetup organizer.
My Story
I have been organizing my local WordPress Meetup Group in Calgary (YYCWPMUG) for a few years now. I had become one of the regular attendees at our monthly events. At the time, there was only one organizer, and he was doing everything. When he asked if I would be interested

This time we again went all out and benchmarked six different PHP versions across 22 different platforms/configurations; including WordPress, Drupal, Joomla!, Laravel, Symfony, and many more. We also tested popular ecommerce solutions such as WooCommerce, Easy Digital Downloads, Magento, Grav CMS, and October CMS. We are always encouraging WordPress users to take advantage of the latest supported versions of PHP. Not only are they more secure, but they offer additional performance improvements. We aren’t talking just about WordPress either, this true for the most part across all platforms. We’ll show you today how PHP 7.4 knocks the socks off of everything we put it against!

A Better, Cleaner Way to Render HTML with JavaScript

Community | webdevstudios.com | Dec. 12, 2019

As a team of WordPress developers, we often stumble upon a task where we need to request a set of data using AJAX and render it to the browser. Most of the the time we do it like this:
It works. However, it’s difficult to maintain this code, and most of the time, the HTML markup we need to use is much more complex than the example above. As more updates and changes occur in the markup, we find it increasingly difficult to work with this code.
Enter wp.template
If you are familiar with Underscore.js or {{ mustache }}, wp.template is an underscore-based JavaScript templating helper shipped with WordPress.
So, how do we use it?
Create and render your HTML markup template
<# _.forEach( data, function ( post ) { #>
Just with this, we can immediately see how easy it is to maintain our HTML markup.
1. It is important that the HTML markup template is wrapped with <script type=“text/html” id=“tmpl-[TEMPLATE-NAME]”></script>.
2. The id needs to be prefixed with tmpl-.
3. data is the variable passed to the template from the JavaScript. You’ll see this shortly.
4. JavaScript logic goes inside <# #>.
5. <# _.forEach() #> is an Underscore

We are always excited to hear from our customers about the creative ways they use Starfish Reviews to get feedback from their customers. Recently Tevya was on Joe Casabona’s podcast How I Built It talking about Starfish Reviews. During the podcast, Joe realized that Starfish had the perfect functionality for something he wanted to do to gather feedback from his podcast listeners. He ended up implementing it, and then made this awesome video explaining what he did. On Joe’s weekly How I Built It podcast, he features conversations with business owners and operators telling their stories. Normally he does 30-40 minute interviews, but recently tried a solo episode where he shared what he learned at a conference. Joe wanted to know whether or not his listeners liked the new format. He used Starfish Reviews to create a simple one click poll to get feedback from his listeners.

How to Use the WordPress App on Your Smartphone

However even though we use mobile phones way more than PCs nowadays (according to research), the majority of WordPress users still create content and post from their desktop computers. This can be considered a bit weird, given that WordPress has an official smartphone app.

How to Use the WordPress App on Your Smartphone

Community | wpnewsify.com | 2 days ago

Just like the WordPress desktop interface, the experts over at WP made sure that the mobile version of the most popular content platform in the world has an app to match its reputation. However, even though we use mobile phones way more than PCs nowadays (according to research), the majority of WordPress users still create content and post from their desktop computers. This can be considered a bit weird, given that WordPress has an official smartphone app.
One of the possible reasons is that users are simply not used to it by now. Old habits die hard, and this applies especially to cases of long-year digital patterns. Remember when Windows XP started getting replaced with newer versions? We were all clinging to the good, old’ XP with all our might.
It seems like the same thing is happening with the WordPress desktop and mobile version. Even though mobile WordPress is perfectly responsive and very user-friendly, most users claim that they simply prefer a ‘better view’ of the dashboard and the text editor. This may be the case for graphics-rich websites that need a birds-eye view on every piece of content they craft, but many pure-text bloggers still prefer a big screen.

SQL (Structured Query Language) is a language that allows us to interact with databases. Modern web applications use databases to manage data and display dynamic content to readers.

What is SQL Injection?
SQL injection, or SQLi, is a type of attack on a web application that enables an attacker to insert malicious SQL statements into the web application, potentially gaining access to sensitive data in the database or destroying this data.SQL injection was first discovered by Jeff Forristal in 1998.
In the two decades since its discovery, SQL injection has consistently been the top priority of web developers when designing applications.
Barclaycard estimated in 2012 that 97% of data breaches initiate with an SQL injection attack. An SQL injection is prevalent even today and the severity of injection attacks in a web application is recognized widely. It is one of the top ten most critical web application security

Website Project Problems You Might Encounter

Business | webdevstudios.com | Dec. 10, 2019

Committing to a new website or a website rebuild brings on a roller coaster of emotions. There is usually excitement over a new functionality or an updated look and sometimes apprehension over the content on your current site. You will certainly feel many highs but also a few lows throughout the life cycle of your project. Because we have ridden the roller coaster with many clients and have noticed the same challenges tend to arise from project to project, we have a few tips on how to handle them. Here are some of the website project problems you are likely to experience and how you can manage them. Missing Data
Oftentimes, our clients wish to migrate the data from their current site to their new site. At the beginning of the life cycle of the project, we conduct a data discovery phase. We examine the data on your current site and complete a data mapping document which is handed off to our clients for final review and approval. Sometimes, it is not desired that all data be brought over. Other times, it is, but the data mapping document should outline explicitly what will be brought over.
Then, development kicks off and data is often not something that comes to our clients’ minds

How to Get People to Rate Your Plugin in the WordPress Plugin Directory

Tutorials | benjaminintal.com | 3 days ago

The WordPress Plugin Directory is the main source where users find plugins. For most plugin authors, it’s the battle arena that can make or break a plugin. I’ll show in this article how I got almost 200 plugin ratings for my plugin Stackable.
There are a lot of tactics to become number one in there. And a lot of people have been trying to figure out how to get the edge.
You can surely get ahead by carefully crafting your ranking high in the search rankings, but if you’re number but your competitors’ 5-star ratings tower over your measly 10 ratings, then it won’t matter.
Needless to say, one of the best ways to get more users to is to get a crapload of plugin ratings.
More Ratings
It’s quite hard to get ratings though.
Users – the one doing the ratings – are quite delicate creatures.
The only time users will rate your plugin a 5-star is when your plugin performs extremely well. Otherwise, they won’t let you know about it..
..Except when they find something a teensy bit wrong, then they rain 1-star ratings on your plugin
Kidding aside, all I mean is that users will go out of their way to rate your plugin if it’s extremely amazing.

Blog Assessment Checklist [Complete Guide]

We start blogging with a motive and sometimes those motives work out just perfectly fine. But, sometimes we miss out on the opportunity. Therefore, we work even harder the next time and try to overcome our shortcomings. This is the process by which any blogger keeps on growing and developing.

Blog assessment is a very important part of the whole blogging process. It lets us know what we lack and how we can improve. Even if you achieve your goals there is always a need to assess your blog site and improve on the shortcomings.
