The Best Blogging Platform in 2019 — WordPress vs. Squarespace vs. Ghost vs. Medium vs. Blogger

Community | cpothemes.com | 3 hours ago

WordPress, Squarespace, Medium and Ghost are all popular blogging platforms. Ever wondered which one you should use? Keep reading to find out… In this post, we’ll help you choose the best blogging platform by going over the pros and cons of the most popular options available.
1. The WordPress.com Blogging Platform
2. The Medium Blogging Platform
3. The Ghost.org Blogging Platform
4. The Squarespace Blogging Platform
5. Google’s Blogger.com Platform
1. The WordPress.com Blogging Platform
In this post, we’re referring to the WordPress.com blogging platform, not the open-source version of WordPress (WordPress.org) which can be used to create more complex websites. Learn more about the difference.
The open source edition of WordPress is by far the world’s most popular content management system available but it’s important not to confuse WordPress.org and WordPress.com. WordPress.com is a fully managed platform similar to Squarespace. The amount of customization is quite limited when compared to what is possible with WordPress.org which is used for advanced eCommerce stores, popular publications and even our own network of websites including https://kaliforms.com

How to Update a WordPress Theme - Your Safe and In-Depth Guide

Tutorials | kinsta.com | 3 hours ago

Your WordPress theme is one of the most important aspects of your WordPress site. It governs how your site looks, how your content is displayed and makes your site look modern, professional and on-brand. Which is why it’s important to keep your theme updated and ensure it always works as it should.
But sometimes that isn’t entirely straightforward. If you’ve customized a theme, updating it means you risk losing your work. If the plugins in your site aren’t compatible with a new version of a theme, you need to decide which code to update and which not to. And if you’re running a WooCommerce store with a theme that you’ve customized, you’ll need to make sure this works after the update.
In this post, I’m going to walk you through the process of how to update a WordPress theme. I’ll cover:

Why You Should Keep WordPress Themes Updated

He not only learned WordPress plugin development, but also built his business while traveling the world. His Divi modules started gaining organic popularity and gained traction from there!

I’m from Germany, born and raised. Ever since my family got our first computer, somewhere in 1992 or 1993 I believe, I was addicted to it. It was clear that some day I had to work with computers one or the other way so I made an apprenticeship where I worked with hardware and software. I was one of only two students in my year who actually understood software development, and it was so much fun that I stuck with it and became a professional software developer.

How to Add a WordPress Language Switcher to Your Site

Planning to translate your WordPress site? A guide to everything you need to know when it comes to adding a WordPress language switcher to your site, including real-world examples, best practice tips, and how to create and customize one using Weglot.

How to Add a WordPress Language Switcher to Your Site

Community | blog.weglot.com | 6 days ago

Thinking about adding a WordPress language switcher to your website? Translating your content into other languages so that site visitors can read your content in their preferred language offers enormous benefits for your business, not limited to helping you reach new markets, providing greater opportunities for SEO and online visibility, and helping you establish trust with new audiences.
For a minimal investment of your time and money, the return on investment (ROI) that WordPress multilingual websites offer is also attractive. According to the Swiss-based trade body, the Industry Specification Group for Localization (ISG), for every US$1 spent on localization, a business will make a return of $25.
That’s a 2,500% return, and certainly not to be sneezed at. Rather, it’s something you should seriously consider if you want to better position your company for success in overseas markets.
To make the most of the above benefits — including the high ROI — it’s crucial that you make it incredibly easy for site visitors to change languages on your site with an easy-to-find, well-designed, and intuitive-to-use WordPress language switcher.
So in this guide, you’ll

Cross Browser Compatibility Testing

STOP! Before you launch a website, conduct cross browser compatibility testing to ensure it looks and operates correctly on all major browsers.

Cross Browser Compatibility Testing

The Scenario It’s the Friday before a major holiday and an urgent email hits your inbox. Your client, who has been a dream to work with over the past few months, has a problem.
Two seconds ago you were thinking about kicking your feet back and relaxing, but now your adrenaline is surging. The CEO (who has never been mentioned before now) is finally taking a look at the new site you’ve developed, and the menu is “completely broken.”
Did you actually think the corporate executives were going to look at the new site with a Mac? A dizzying array of questions zip through your mind. “How could this happen? I checked the site on all of the major browsers!” you say to yourself as the world around you spirals.
After some deep breathing exercises and a bit of inquiry, it becomes apparent that the browser in question is Microsoft Edge on Windows 10. To make matters worse, the site wasn’t actually tested on any browsers beyond the boundaries of your Mac devices. You’ve been loyal to Apple for as long as you can remember, but that won’t help now.

Community | wpstackable.com | 6 days ago

In today’s world, there are so many different ways of showing your art work. Online galleries abound and are usually an easy and budget-friendly way for art enthusiasts and casual visitors to access your work. Here are some tips on how you can showcase your work better. 1. Highlight Your Major Works
As every artist and enthusiast knows, not all art works are created equal. When inspiration strikes, an artist can produce great works that stand as the major highlight of their collection. Since major works are a step above the rest, they should be highlighted in your site and be featured in a striking section.

2. Display Collections Using Crisp Layouts
Collections of work can be displayed best when the gallery layout you use is clean and without too many frills. This will allow each piece to speak for itself so visitors would be able to focus on the important details.
3. Use Videos for Virtual Walkthroughs
Even if videos are not your medium of choice, you can make good use of them to show montages of your work or have a walk through of physical exhibits. This way, your art can feel more tangible to your visitors no matter where they are.

How to Get the Perfect Link to Ask for Google Reviews

Reviews are becoming a vital part of any online marketing strategy. Now Google has made it super simple to get the right link to use when asking your clients or followers for a review on Google My Business.

How to Get the Perfect Link to Ask for Google Reviews

Tutorials | starfish.reviews | 5 days ago

I’ve been going to write this post for a while now. I needed to take the time to put together a link generator to use in Starfish Reviews, or when otherwise asking for a Google My Business (and Google Maps) review. It was going to be like the one we have for Facebook reviews, making it much easier to get the URL correct. But it was an even more complicated process to get the exact, right URL, than with Facebook. In this (rare) instance, my procrastination paid off. Google just released a much easier way to get your Google My Business review link! Plus you’ll get a short-URL to use to link to your Google My Business listing for other purposes as well.
1. Get Your GMB Profile “Short Name”
This step is super easy. Just login to Google My Business, then click on your business listing. It will take you to the “Home” page for that listing. On this page, scroll down and look for the “Complete your listing” section on the page.
Next, click the “Add profile short name” link in that section to get started with getting your short URL. That will take you to the Info page and pop up the modal to get a new short name for your listing. We

WordPress Caching: All You Need To Know

Development | spinupwp.com | 6 days ago

Over the last few years of supporting our products at Delicious Brains (notably WP Offload Media and most recently, SpinupWP), one thing has become clear: Caching in WordPress is often misunderstood (and sites run slower than they should as a result).
In this post, I hope to demystify some of those misconceptions and provide a little clarity on the minefield that is WordPress caching. Hopefully, by the end of this post, you’ll have a better understanding of how the various layers of caching play a role in turbocharging WordPress.
Why is Caching Important?
Before we dive into the various caching mechanisms, it’s essential to understand the benefits of caching. Caching plays two major roles:
It improves application performance. For WordPress sites, this means that your site loads faster.
It increases application throughput. Meaning, your site can handle more traffic.
What’s more, caching can increase both application performance and throughput without increasing hosting costs. This is because you need far less system resources (CPU & memory) to host a site that has been correctly cached. It really is a win-win strategy (when done correctly).

How to better manage your WordPress users

Plugins | wpwhitesecurity.com | 5 days ago

The more users your have on your WordPress website, the more difficult it is to manage them. The administrative efforts required usually include controlling access, restricting ‘site-breaking’ settings, stopping users from modifying specific content, and more. WordPress has user roles to let you set privileges and manage users. However, there are plenty of other ways to run a more efficient operation, without getting bogged down with user micromanagement.

How to Translate WordPress Menu into Multiple Languages

Tutorials | translatepress.com | 20 days ago

Translating a website requires more than a simple translation of the content. For instance, a major concern is how to translate a WordPress menu. The menu is one of the first elements of a site that users notice, and they base their first impression on it. When building a multilingual WordPress menu, there are several aspects you need to pay attention to. Some of your pages or products may be related or available only to some countries, so you may have to hide those menu items for certain languages.
The translation also impacts the menu design. For example, it’s well known that German words are on average longer than English words, which influences the spacing between menu items.
TranslatePress helps you translate any WordPress menu, in a couple of clicks using a visual translation editor. Below we’ll go into the simple steps to achieve this.
Setting Up a WordPress Menu
Due to the way it’s built, TranslatePress works out of the box with any theme or plugin, so you can use the theme of your choice, or even a menu plugin. Most themes support a primary and footer menu, but some give users more options for displaying menus.

I get the excitement behind changing things up and refreshing your site every couple of years, and I understand why so many people love to get themselves through that, but that’s just not me. My mindset has always been that design needs to be “good enough,” and that it’s something that will not make a huge of a difference in the grand scheme of things.
But with that said, ThemeIsle was long overdue for a change. Even I could see that things were no longer 2019-ready. So when the decision was made to shake things up, I made sure to document the process so that we can learn as much as possible from the transition.

How to Remove "Powered by WordPress"

“Proudly powered by WordPress”. If you’ve installed a free theme from the WordPress theme directory, you’ll probably have seen that message in the footer of your site.
