Sass Tips to Take Your Skills to the Next Level

Frontend Engineer, Marty O'Connor, shares 10 Sass tips to take your skills to the next level.

Sass Tips to Take Your Skills to the Next Level

If you’ve been using Sass for a while, but find yourself writing seemingly basic code that doesn’t look very different from vanilla CSS, then this article is for you. We’ll explore ten ways to put Sass to use, taking advantage of some of its more intermediate to advanced features. Year after year, I continue to be impressed with the language’s capabilities and would like to share some of the tricks I’ve learned. This article assumes you have at least some working experience with Sass. If not, get your hands dirty with one of the many great resources on the internet. The Sass documentation is a great place to start. They don’t call them Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets for nothing, so let’s get started on these 10 Sass tips created to take your skills to the next level. 1. Parent Selector
Select a parent from within the child selector.
SCSS
Instead of having to make a new selector for .container .text outside of the .text block, you can just write your selector inside of .text, followed by the &.
Compiled CSS
HTML
2. Suffixes
Here’s a cool way to generate suffixes based on a particular class. Use &- followed by the desired suffix.

Gutenberg: One Year Later

Gutenberg: One Year Later

Community | wptavern.com | 2 days ago

As we quickly head into the final weeks of 2019, we also pass the first anniversary of WordPress 5.0 and, subsequently, Gutenberg coming headlong into our lives. Love it or hate it, Gutenberg is here to stay. If you had asked my thoughts on it last December, I would have probably sided with a large portion of other WordPress users.
What are you doing?
WordPress is fine, leave it alone!
Stop forcing me to use this!
Here we are, twelve months later, and you know what? I LOVE IT. And, I am not alone.
When it comes to writing content, I cannot imagine using the Classic Editor anymore. Sure, for a few paragraphs, the Classic Editor is fine. However, when you need to make a 4,000+ word post, Gutenberg and the new block system make things a lot easier.
Yes, the UI is a struggle for someone brand new to WordPress. We have all heard the “Wait, I thought you said this was like Word?” line. A good onboarding process would tackle that going forward. For the rest of us, if you have not adopted Gutenberg yet, you should take another look at it.
The Need for a New Editor
Let’s be honest. The Classic Editor was great for short posts, a couple of headlines and paragraphs, job done.

A Comprehensive Guide to Creating a Multilingual WooCommerce Store

Tutorials | translatepress.com | 4 days ago

Thanks to the web, online shoppers can choose to buy products from almost anywhere in the world. Want a pair of shoes you can’t find locally? Buy them from another country. Need a replacement part for your foreign-made car? Hop online and get it in a couple of days. But while the web has made the world smaller in a lot of ways, language barriers continue to add friction to the online shopping experience, particularly for non-English speaking consumers.
According to a Common Sense Advisory survey, 75% of people want to buy products in their native language. Across the 10 countries surveyed, 56% either spend more time on sites in their own language than they do in English, or boycott English-language URLs altogether.
That’s why it’s important ecommerce businesses invest in creating a multilingual WooCommerce store, one that provides quality translations and localized currencies, sizes, shipping, and more.
But how do you create a multilingual WooCommerce store? Let’s take a look.

10 Best FTP Clients for WordPress Users (Mac and Windows)

All FTP clients are different but the important thing to know is that you want a client that works on your Operating System.

10 Best FTP Clients for WordPress Users (Mac and Windows)

Tutorials | kinsta.com | 4 days ago

Building a website requires files and folders. Building a complicated website requires a seemingly endless supply of files and folders. If you’re a developer or designer it becomes incredibly overwhelming. You may forget where a media file was moved to or maybe a theme folder has gone missing or didn’t transfer to the server properly. Regardless of your problems, you need one of the best FTP clients to help you stay organized. What’s the Point of an FTP Client?
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol, and it allows you to connect your local files on a computer to an online server. For instance, you may be creating a WordPress site. In that case, you could build a website on your computer, then eventually move all of the files to your server and launch your website for the world to see. In short, it gives you the opportunity to organize your files, make edits in a private environment, and also check to see if anything is going wrong.
All FTP clients are different but the important thing to know is that you want a client that works on your Operating System and you’re looking for a user interface that’s easy to move around and sort out the folders.

Freemius Is Getting Into Video Content - This Is Why You Should Too

Business | freemius.com | 4 days ago

1981 was the year when MTV exploded into the world. The introduction of music videos forever changed the way we consume and enjoy music. Around the same time, a British pop band called “The Buggles” released one of the most groundbreaking pop songs of that era called “Video Killed the Radio Star”. Other than being a really great song, in those times of the rise of MTV – it was kind of a “prophecy” which symbolized a new age – the age of video. Fast forward 39 years into the future – record companies have risen and fallen – but video is stronger than ever! If you think about it – where do you go on the internet when you want to learn something new?
In 2019, YouTube is the second most popular search engine on the world wide web.Tweet
In these times, internet connections are faster than ever, information and knowledge are public domain, and anyone, anywhere can learn anything and teach anything. In this context, it makes sense that videos are the best way to deliver messages and share knowledge online.
According to research, video content is processed 60,000 times faster in the human brain than textual content! This combination

How to choose the right theme to build multilingual WordPress sites

Community | blog.weglot.com | 11 days ago

With WordPress sites now accounting for more than 34% of the web, you’re not alone in thinking this web development platform will be a great choice for building an online presence for your business. And, choosing a template is of course going to be one of the first steps to creating your WordPress site.
Whether that be creating a WordPress site that displays your knowledge, choosing a design that screams creativity, or a clutter-free theme that lets your brand do the talking. You’ll want to choose a theme that works for the type of industry you’re working in.
With countless options to choose from, picking a theme that meets your needs is important from the off. You have to create the right first impression for your brand, whilst ensuring you’re choosing a theme that is compatible with a number of useful WordPress plugins, that’ll help enhance the growth of your business.
But, it’s easy to get completely overwhelmed with the thousands of choices available and it’s tempting to be blinded by how ‘pretty’ a theme is, rather than looking at the features, and how workable a more simple WordPress theme can be for you and your business.

Best practices for managing WordPress activity logs

Keeping a record of everything that happens on your #WordPress #website is just the beginning. You also need to backup your logs, control who accesses them, and ensure the setup is secure. To help you get started we've prepared a list of best practices for managing WordPress activity logs.

Best practices for managing WordPress activity logs

The data stored in the WordPress activity log is sensitive and confidential. So should you back it up? Should you archive it and keep it secure? Many compliance regulations stipulate who can access such data, and how such data should be stored, secured and backed up. This is common practise in the finance and healthcare industries. Typically they also stipulate for how long activity log data should be kept.
Therefore installing WP Security Audit Log to keep a log of user and site changes is just the beginning. As a business you are also responsible for the security and management of the WordPress activity logs (aka audit log or audit trail) on your website(s).
In this article we explain all you need to know about managing and maintaining the WordPress activity log data. We also explain how you can use the tools in WP Security Audit Log to manage and keep your WordPress activity logs secure and backed up.
Accessing old data
For how long should you keep the WordPress activity log data?
There are many factors to consider when deciding for how long you should retain your website’s activity log data:
Does your business has to comply with specific regulatory compliance requirements?

Scroll Animations with Intersection Observer

Tutorials | webdevstudios.com | 16 days ago

When creating even the most basic scrolling animations, there are many steps involved just to add or remove a class name with JavaScript. With modern ES6 syntax, it’s time to simplify how much effort is needed by taking advantage of the Intersection Observer API. In this article, I’ll show you how to create a basic Intersection Observer that will add or remove a CSS blur when an object has entered or left the viewport. What is Intersection Observer?
Intersection Observer is a really awesome JavaScript API that simplifies scroll-based events in JavaScript. Rather than constantly checking the distance from the top, Intersection Observer watches when an element enters or exits the viewport. It’s really that simple, and you can create features such as scroll animations, lazy loading images, inserting new elements into the DOM, and triggering notifications.
The IntersectionObserver interface of the Intersection Observer API provides a way to asynchronously observe changes in the intersection of a target element with an ancestor element or with a top-level document’s viewport. The ancestor element or viewport is referred to as the root.

My first WordCamp Contributor Day experience was at WordCamp US (WCUS) 2018. I had no clue what to expect, or if I even had any right to be there. I’ve since learned this is a common feeling among first-timers. I showed up anyway, had a great time working with the Community Team, and somehow ended up being the co-organizer for the next WordCamp Contributor Day at WCUS 2019! WCUS’ Contributor Day was held on the third day of this national WordPress conference, which took place in St. Louis, Missouri this year. In an effort to recruit more people to participate in WordCamp Contributor Day, we worked hard on education and awareness. This included publishing blog posts about the different teams and running workshops, which took place on the first two days of WCUS. These workshops were designed to demystify Contributor Day. You can watch videos from the workshops at WordPress.tv. We even had buttons made that say, “I make WordPress. Ask me how,” which experienced contributors wore throughout the weekend.

Blog Layout Best Practices [Top 10 Crucial Tactics]

Community | wpblogdesigner.net | 17 hours ago

The blog is one of the most popular sources of getting information and solving problems. The new trend of creating video content has seen a good boom, yet it fails to overcome the popularity of blogs. People all over the world have seen the popularity and reach of blogs. Therefore, there has been an incline in the number of bloggers. This makes the blogging market highly competitive and thus makes a blogger’s job even tougher than it already was. He has to take care of several factors that could increase or decrease his site’s ranking. And he has to handle while everyone is trying to be better than the other guy.
So the situation can be handled by writing good content, right? Wrong. Though content indeed plays the most important role in ensuring the success of a blog, yet the design and layout of your blog also play a very significant role.
Design is where a reader judges the site and finally decides if the content will be worth reading. It helps bloggers show professionalism and quality to their readers. No amount of good content will yield good revenue unless it is presented in a highly sophisticated manner.
It is the same case as in your food; when you ask for a dish

What to Look for in a Gutenberg-Compatible WordPress Theme

Gutenberg has its own specific features and needs. Here's how to pick a theme that takes full advantage.

What to Look for in a Gutenberg-Compatible WordPress Theme

With the Gutenberg block editor now the default option within WordPress, it’s important to think about how it works with the other components of your website. Themes are of particular concern, as they directly display the content you create. In a broad sense, most themes (even older ones) are likely compatible with the new editor. At least in terms of avoiding breakage. However, that doesn’t mean that your theme can take advantage of every feature.
So, how should a Gutenberg-compatible WordPress theme work? What features can you expect to find? Today, we’ll introduce you to some basics that you can use as a guide when shopping for your next theme.
Cover the Basics
In the Classic editor, all of the content within a post was more or less considered a singular entity. While there may be various HTML elements included in that post, they are still tied together within the editor itself. That’s why adding goodies such as multicolumn layouts were so difficult. You had to be extra careful when making changes, as the whole thing could easily break.
Getting around this used to require either a page builder or even custom fields to create layouts that were more flexible

Community | kinsta.com | 13 days ago

WordPress fonts may seem like an insignificant detail. After all, there are WordPress themes, color schemes, background images, and blog layouts to think about. Who has time for font styles?
While designing a website can take a long time, the truth is, all website owners should take care to focus on the WordPress fonts they use for their site’s written text. Font styles are an important web design detail that affects your site’s readability.
Not to mention, using the right font pairings can help you stand out from the competition, boost conversions, and even increase brand recognition.
But only if you do it right. Today we’re going to dive into what WordPress fonts are and how to find the best ones for your WordPress website.
The fonts you use on your WordPress website say something about your brand, whether you want them to or not. And even the tiniest change in a WordPress font can alter a site visitor’s entire perception of your company.
Of course, explaining the history and psychology behind typeface would require its very own blog post. But to give you an idea, here are the five major types of font styles you might want to use on your site:

Best WordPress themes for a multilingual business site

Plugins | blog.weglot.com | 25 days ago

One of the first steps after choosing WordPress as your CMS platform of choice is to select a theme fit for promoting your business. And, if you’re an internationally minded business owner or entrepreneur, then we’re guessing that at some point your goal is to reach new audiences.
With this in mind, you’ll want to look for a WordPress theme provider that works perfectly for creating a multilingual WordPress site.
You’d be right in thinking website translation is no longer an option, it’s a must have if you’re looking to do business with other countries. Or maybe you do business in a country that speaks more than one language? Or, perhaps you don’t realize you’re doing business in a country with more than one language.
Surprise fact alert…if you work within the US and think the English language is your only target market, you might be interested to learn that it’s the world’s second-largest Spanish-speaking country, following only Mexico.
So, as we move towards a world that’s becoming ever connected, where the countries we do business in are not only multilingual speaking, but the demand for purchasing products

Blocks Plugin Unit Test: Choosing the Perfect Gutenberg Plugin

Gutenberg Blocks Plugin Unit Testing. This tutorial aims to help everyone choose the best WordPress blocks plugin that fits their website and has the best compatibility with the active theme.

Blocks Plugin Unit Test: Choosing the Perfect Gutenberg Plugin

Since the launch of new WordPress Gutenberg block editor, there have been a lot of blocks plugin added on the plugin directory. Most of these Gutenberg blocks plugins provide several collection of useful blocks that you can integrate easily on your website. The huge question is which of these plugins perfectly fits your needs and works smoothly with your current theme? Sure you can try themes with sample contents on it, but there has been no way to do unit testing when it comes to Gutenberg blocks. You have to manually add each block that you want to test to the editor and hope that it’s not broken on both backend and frontend views.
It’s probably not news to you that I’ve created EditorsKit plugin which provides set of tools for Gutenberg editor. One of my goals with this plugin is to provide help to users to make the switch from Classic Editor easier. This is the main reason I’ve added a lot of formatting options that are available on TinyMCE but missing on the block editor.
To achieve my goals, I’m working really hard to provide help on EditorsKit Facebook Community, create Gutenberg Editor Tips & Tricks on Twitter, and provide several tutorials

Stripe Connect, and what it means for you!

Plugins | javorszky.co.uk | 21 hour ago

Recently I’m seeing more and more WordPress plugins adopt Stripe Connect, including, but not limited to, EDD, Gravity Forms, and most recently Restrict Content Pro. Each one of them touts the ease of use of Stripe Connect, but they neglect to mention this fairly important point that also comes with using Connect that you cannot opt out of to the best of my knowledge: they will be able to see all the transactions that have happened, ever, and will happen on your account with all of their details.
Gravity Forms does make a passing note of this, but I feel like they play down the extent of the access:
“As with all integrators with Stripe Connect, we are provided access to Stripe’s reporting portal which shows transactions that pass through our plug-in. Like all Stripe transactions, this data is stored and secured by Stripe, and is not transmitted to us in any way for any other purposes. Gravity Forms does not use any unique transaction data from this source, and we only review aggregate volume data occasionally to monitor performance of the add-on. Additionally, we have limited access to Stripe’s reporting portal to our company principals only.”

Creating a WordPress site isn’t enough. You also need to pay attention to some good ol’ WordPress maintenance. When you’ve put lots of time into creating your site, it can be disheartening to think that the work isn’t over. In fact, it’s only just begun. But it doesn’t have to be a burden.

Putting Your WordPress Site into Maintenance Mode
Plenty of the work you do to maintain your WordPress site won’t involve putting it in maintenance mode, but sometimes you’ll need to do this—so it pays to know what it means.
When your site is in maintenance mode, it means that you’re telling visitors and search engines that it’s currently unavailable, but that unavailability is planned and temporary (i.e. your site hasn’t gone down).
When you update WordPress, or you update a theme or plugin, WordPress will automatically go into maintenance mode (stuck in maintenance mode?

WordPress Plugin Development Best Practices: Template Files

In WordPress, templates are usually used in themes. But there are plugins like WooCommerce and EDD that use template files to display content as well. In this article, Delicious Brains explains how you can do this too in your own plugins.

WordPress Plugin Development Best Practices: Template Files

Tutorials | deliciousbrains.com | 18 days ago

When we talk about templates in WordPress we are normally referring to page template files in the theme. However, there are plugins that use template files to display content, and that becomes another consideration when it comes to building WordPress themes. Can you override plugin template files? If so, how? If you are building a plugin that renders HTML, how can you make it easily altered by themes? In this article I’ll answer these questions.
What Are Templates?
The WordPress templating system is one of the most important pillars of the WordPress architecture. Template files are “PHP files that contain a mixture of HTML, Template Tags, and PHP code.”
Template files are loaded in a specific manner, governed by the WordPress template hierarchy. Specific template files are looked for in the theme, and fallbacks are used if they don’t exist. For example, a car listing site has registered a custom post type of ‘car’. When a user visits a page on the site for a specific car, WordPress will look in the theme for a template file called single-car.php. If it doesn’t exist, it will fallback to the single.php template for displaying generic posts.
A
