14 Best WooCommerce plugins for 2020+

We take a look at the the WooCommerce plugins needs to make your store international ready

14 Best WooCommerce plugins for 2020+

Community | blog.weglot.com | 6 hours ago

Setting up an online store isn’t easy and things can become even more complicated when: You’re doing business in a country where people speak a language other than English
You have to keep the country’s tax requirements in mind (Think: EU VAT)
You want to offer shipping, returns, and refund options to international customers
As a WooCommerce store owner, you’ll likely have to cater to international customers as you grow your business and ecommerce site. You have to consider things like:
Which language you’ll publish content in
Which currencies you’ll support for payments
How you’ll handle tax rates
Whether you’ll accept credit card payments or offer online payment methods (such as PayPal and Stripe)
If you want to set up dynamic pricing rules for retail customers and wholesale buyers
How you’ll upsell and cross-sell to customers e.g. on the checkout page or on WooCommerce product pages
Offering these additional features to an international customer base may require some extra work on your part although the final result will definitely be worth all the effort.
The easiest (and most cost-effective) way to add these ecommerce capabilities

Strattic raises $6.5M to bring static WordPress to the masses – TechCrunch

Community | techcrunch.com | 4 hours ago

WordPress remains the juggernaut of content management systems, even though it now often gets used in ways it was never intended. And with that, managing the life cycle of WordPress sites has only gotten more complicated, too, all while hackers are trying to exploit any and all security issues to take control of a site. Strattic aims to make all of this a lot easier by turning WordPress sites into static sites that don’t query a database whenever a user looks at a page. The Israeli company today announced that it has raised a $6.5 million seed round led by SignalFire and TenOneTen Ventures, with participation from Accel, Automattic, Seneca VC, Eric Ries and Village Global VC. It also announced that Zeev Suraski, who co-created PHP 3 and the Zend Engine that’s at the core of PHP 4, has joined the company as its CTO.
About 13 years ago, Strattic CEO and co-founder Miriam Schwab founded a WordPress web development company. At that time, WordPress was often still seen as a tool for running personal blogs, but that has obviously changed over time. But she realized that once her agency handed off the site to the customer, they would often come back to her to ask for maintenance

How to Style Wide and Full-Width Gutenberg Blocks in WordPress

Some tips on taking advantage of the full and wide-aligned blocks in Gutenberg.

How to Style Wide and Full-Width Gutenberg Blocks in WordPress

Tutorials | speckyboy.com | 7 hours ago

The Gutenberg block editor for WordPress has changed how we create content within the CMS. But it’s also opened up some new possibilities on the front end as well. One of the more interesting developments in this area is the ability to add “full” or “wide” blocks to a page or post. This feature adds the potential for a Gutenberg block to break out from the default width of a theme’s content – something that was nearly impossible in the old Classic Editor.
There are a number of possible uses for a full or wide-aligned block. You could, for instance, introduce new page sections with a full-width cover block that overlays text on an image background. Or you might leverage the feature to build a can’t-miss call-to-action area. Just about any type of content could be added here, which is part of the appeal.
However, there is one small caveat: Your theme must support full and wide-aligned blocks. Thankfully, it’s rather easy to do. The following is a quick tutorial for adding wide alignment support to your WordPress theme and styling the blocks via CSS.
Adding Theme Support
The first step involves adding a single line of code to your active

How to Build Design Systems for WordPress

If you don't know what a design system is or how it can benefit your website, now's your chance to find out.

How to Build Design Systems for WordPress

What is a design system? If you’ve never heard of a design system before, you’re not alone. For those of us not dabbling in graphic design or pursuing it as a career, you can think of it essentially as a design template for websites. A design system sets out the building blocks that a graphic designer will use to build websites with. In this article, we’ll cover the basics of a design system and touch on design systems specifically for WordPress.
A design system might be very generic blocks—i.e., wireframes, a group of font styles, some button styles, logo usage, the header and footer design, etc. Or, it may be very specific, such as the entire brand and style guidelines for a company from top to bottom.
History
As web development has matured, it became apparent that while print designers had Illustrator and InDesign, there really wasn’t a comparable tool with which to lay out a website, visually. Many designers used Photoshop, but that was very much like using a sledgehammer to hang a picture. Sure, it would probably work, but you’d most likely end up with a very large hole.
Then along came Sketch in late 2010. Sketch, a software built solely for

We’re sure your blog content is great, but for it to garner all the attention that it can, it needs more than just your thoughts and opinions in written form; it needs featured images. A featured image is sort of a teaser for what the article is about, its thumbnail when the post is shared on social media and other platforms. The average person is bombarded with content on a daily basis and definitely has enough blogs and blog posts to choose from.

How to Reset a WordPress site

Plugins | montereypremier.com | 14 hours ago

Sometimes you are working on your site, and your coffee starts to wear off without you noticing. And one slip leads to another, one bracket missed here, another there and you wind up with a headache wondering what happened. And many of those times, tracing the breadcrumbs back is nearly impossible. WordPress may be easy to use, but coding is fine art.
If you’re having an awful day, the thought of starting a new WordPress site may cross your mind. Just to leave this mess behind and start all over again.
Luckily, you don’t have to start a new website; there is a reset button.
And when developing a website, let’s all agree that resetting isn’t quitting.
Be it for just trying out or practicing your coding, debugging smaller chunks, or to pull yourself out of the rabbit hole altogether, “hitting the reset button” is a tried and tested maneuver.
The WebFactory team has made a safe and simple plugin to use as a reset button – it’s called WP Reset.
The WP Reset plugin’s main assignment is to reset your database without touching any files. It isn’t the first plugin with this function that has been integrated into the WordPress platform.

Product Transparency: Displaying Ingredients on Your Consumer Goods Website

Business | webdevstudios.com | 14 days ago

Product transparency simply means being open and honest about the ingredients in your consumer packaged goods (CPG). Growing up, I was never concerned with the ingredients in products. I consumed a lot of food and used a lot of skin and hair products that weren’t good for my body or health. One day, I realized that I had lost most of my hair and it was falling out at a rapid pace. Thanks to the internet and social media, I learned about the natural hair movement and how to read ingredients in products. I learned exactly what ingredients were good for my hair and which ones to stay away from. My hair flourished and grew longer than it ever had before. I then started to pay attention and research all ingredients in my food and skincare products. Product transparency has become a movement not only for me but for everyone else! That’s why displaying ingredients on your consumer goods website is vital for both your customers and your brand. Consumers everywhere are paying attention to the ingredients that we are consuming and the potential negative effects those ingredients have. Consumers want to know the ingredients of their food, hair, skin, makeup, household, baby products

5 Steps to Migrating Your WordPress Site

Tutorials | webdevstudios.com | 16 days ago

Is your website running slower than a puppy pulling a freight train? For first steps to remedy the situation, check out our blog post on Diagnosing a Slow WordPress Site. If your site is still running slow, it might be time to consider migrating your website to a new hosting provider. [0] => Survey Your Requirements
When migrating your WordPress website and choosing your next host, some things worth considering are:
What level of support you require via email, live chat, or phone
Traffic
Be cautious with budget hosts (typically, $8 per month) that advertise UNLIMITED bandwidth or traffic. While cheap vendors might be sufficient for small blogs, often several thousands of websites are being hosted on the same server, fighting over the same system resources, which can result in slower speeds for more complex websites.
If your website is critical to your business success, it’s best to go with a company that allocates service by visitor count and typically starts with pricing around $29 per month. Often, when choosing a host based on metered traffic, your website is hosted on faster servers with a minimum guarantee of system resources.

Web Design Best Practices For Your Next Website Project

Editorials | kinsta.com | 11 days ago

What causes the large discrepancy between what some WordPress developers charge compared to others? Answering this question requires consideration for the reason behind why you want a website in the first place. Some developers focus on the literal final product: the combination of code that results in a pleasant enough website design.
But developers with marketing savvy concern themselves with more than just building something that looks nice. They act as consultants to clients who are looking to accomplish specific goals with their websites.
With this in mind, hiring someone to build a website who doesn’t seem interested in/doesn’t ask questions about your end goals is a red flag. It’s important to call out the fact that even the most beautiful web design may not be ideal when it comes to getting visitors to convert into customers.
That said, 94% of people judge your credibility based on your website’s design.
So, instead, you need to focus on using your design to offer the ideal user experience. You must make it easy for visitors to find the information they sought by visiting your website in the first place while guiding them towards goal conversion activities.

Common WordPress Misconceptions and The Truth Behind Them

Community | wpsauce.com | 5 days ago

Even though WordPress has been the top platform that deals with web development and management for years, there’s still a surprising number of commonly accepted myths and misconceptions that people cling on to. Some of these misconceptions were, in some way, true at one point, but we’ve since gone a long way to still take them seriously.
To ease your mind into using WordPress, we’ll debunk the five most common of these misconceptions and provide you with the truth of how things really stand now.
WordPress is only for bloggers
When WordPress first launched, it was intended for running blogs – that part is true. In the years since, however, it has evolved so much that it can run any type of site you can think of. As we’ve already mentioned, it’s the most widespread platform out there, and all of those users can’t be only using it just for blogs.
The reason WordPress has evolved from such a specific purpose beginning to a tool that encompasses so much more is its nature. Being an open-source program means it available for anyone to improve upon it, from which steams a virtually endless supply of plugins, widgets, themes, editors, etc. all of which
