Recommended WordPress Multisite Plugins (Network Management, Migrations, Backups)

Juggling multiple sites over a network? These plugins will make your life so much easier!

Recommended WordPress Multisite Plugins (Network Management, Migrations, Backups)

Community | kinsta.com | 2 days ago

Performing backups and migrations with basic WordPress sites are pretty straightforward nowadays. There are thousands of step-by-step tutorials on the web and plugins which automate the entire process, making it quick and painless. However, when it comes to a WordPress multisite setup, tasks such as backups and migrations are a little more complex.
This is primarily due to the fact that multisite setups share the same WordPress database and installation. Therefore, unless you’re migrating or backing up the entire multisite, you have to segment the job down to the subsite level.
Or worse, maybe you’re wanting to turn a subsite back into a normal WordPress install.
Today we’ll share with you a few WordPress multisite plugins we recommend.
Ready? Let’s dive in!
The Challenges of Backing up and Migrating a WordPress Multisite Network
Backing up and migrating a multisite network is complicated by a few factors:
If you want to make separate backups of individual subsites, you won’t be able to use the same methods as for backing up a standalone site.
You can migrate subsites into and out of a multisite network, but it isn’t as straightforward as migrating

Retroactively Sign Git Commits

Tutorials | webdevstudios.com | 5 days ago

It’s a classic situation. You’re contributing to a project, filed your pull request, and gotten it approved by your peers. You’re all ready to merge your code and add your humble contribution to the project when, out of nowhere, GitHub gives you this: How do you go about doing this, especially when you’ve already committed your work and pushed it to the server? How do you retroactively sign your Git commits? We’ll do this in six steps:
Gather Information
Install GPG
Create or use a key
Set up Git to sign commits using GPG
Rebase your commits
Overwrite your branch with your newly signed commits
There’s a lot to unpack, so we’re going to need six steps. Also, these instructions are for macOS; Windows and Linux users may have different commands.
Step 1: Gather Information
I’m self-aware enough to know that I’m the kind of person to just skip straight to the doing, but a quick moment here will save you from having to duplicate effort later. In particular, you can avoid this ‘gotcha’ that has gotten more than one person at the end of this process:
The name and email on your GPG key must match the name and email on the Git

How to Translate Categories & Custom Taxonomies in WordPress

Plugins | translatepress.com | 5 days ago

The ability to translate categories and custom taxonomies in WordPress is essential for any website looking to go multilingual. If you’re serious about multilingual SEO, then translating taxonomy slugs is a must as it will help your translated content rank in multiple languages. This however is not always as straight forward as it should be. Different WordPress translation tools have different approaches when it comes to translating slugs for categories, custom taxonomies or terms. It’s quite easy to get confused when joggling with multiple translation interfaces for different types of content, while also having to worry about compatibility issues with your theme or favorite page builder.
In this tutorial, we’re going to use TranslatePress, a beginner-friendly WordPress translation plugin, that lets you translate all your taxonomy slugs in one place, using a intuitive translation interface that looks like this:
It also works out of the box with any theme or plugin, including WooCommerce or page builders, like Elementor. Using it you can translate every content on you site, page by page, using a visual translation editor.

Having your website’s content in Google News is a great way to increase traffic. This is a tutorial about how to submit your WordPress site to Google News properly.

How to Submit Your WordPress Site to Google News and Google Discover

Community | kinsta.com | 9 days ago

The aim of Google News is to filter through the world’s news and make timely news accessible to readers in a way that’s easy for them to read, understand, and put to use. So what does this mean for your website and your site?
Lots of traffic, credibility, and authority.
If that sounds like something you’d like for your WordPress site (and let’s be honest, who wouldn’t) then read on to find out everything you need to know about how to submit your site to Google News.
What is Google News?
Google News is a news aggregator that curates a customizable flow of recent news articles and stories from the last 30 days.
Today, it’s even more than that as Google News stories can surface in other Google products, such as:
Google News feed (duh)
“Top stories” section in the SERP page
The “News tab” in the SERP page (like the one you have for images, so to speak)
Google Discover, Google’s new feed based on improved Knowledge Graph able to provide custom results based on a single user’s search history.

What's New in PHP 8 (Features, Improvements, and the JIT Compiler)

Community | kinsta.com | 6 days ago

PHP 8 is expected to be released in December 2020 and will bring us a whole bunch of powerful features and great language improvements. While several proposals are still under development, many RFCs have already been approved and implemented, so it’s time for us to dive into some of the most exciting additions that should make PHP faster and more reliable.
Please, note that PHP 8 is still under development, and we could see several changes before the final release. Anyway, we’ll keep track of these changes and update this post regularly, so make sure you don’t miss anything about PHP 8 and check this post again from time to time.
So, what features and improvements should we expect with PHP 8? What’s the biggest thing coming with PHP 8, the next major release of the language?

Best Way to Translate a Website in 2020 (Easy Tutorial)

Tutorials | translatepress.com | 11 days ago

What’s the best way to translate a website in 2020? This is a popular question among website owners, and especially if it’s a business website that you’re running! In this tutorial, we take you step by step through the entire process and show you all the stages of translating your website in its entirety – from menus to content, images, and even SEO.
Let’s get started:
What’s the best way to translate a website?
If your website runs on WordPress then getting it translated is a fairly easy thing to do. However, you still need a translation or multilingual plugin to handle the main task. Here’s why:
You might have heard that WordPress is “translation-ready” or “ready for localization,” which suggests that all the tools required to get your website translated are already there, built-in.
This is partly true.
WordPress being translation-ready only means that it makes it possible for website translation on the code level. In other words, if you’re a web developer, WordPress has some ready-made structures for you in place that add translation capability to your themes or plugins. But this doesn’t help the end-user

Secure your WordPress login with these easy-to-use plugins

Weak passwords are the most common cause of WordPress hack attacks. So securing the login process of your WordPress website is imperative, especially if you manage a multiuser website, or an eCommerce / membership site.

Secure your WordPress login with these easy-to-use plugins

Security | wpwhitesecurity.com | 2 days ago

When it comes to managing your WordPress site, keeping your login secure and working well should be of top priority. Whether you operate an eCommerce store, or a membership site, making sure that your users utilize a strong username and password combination is essential to securing your website against outside threats and hacking attempts. And yet, some of your users may well continue to use weaker passwords and usernames for their WordPress login. Passwords such as password123 or even 1234 leave a gaping hole in your site’s defenses. However, by using a couple of plugins, you can secure your WordPress login. With the plugins you can enforce strong passwords and use a more secure authentication mechanism.
This guide will walk you through what those plugins are and how to use them. It also explains why they are so crucial in the battle to keep your WordPress login secure. But first, it’s vitally important to understand why you need to take these steps to protect your website.

How Automattic pays its remote employees across different geographies – TechCrunch

How Automattic pays its remote employees across different geographies – TechCrunch

Business | techcrunch.com | 3 days ago

A growing number of tech companies is telling their employees they can work from anywhere, even after this pandemic has passed. A looming question, however, is how. Last week, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told employees that Facebook will adjust the pay of those who choose to move out of the Bay Area and work in different, presumably less expensive, geographies. But others figuring out their own remote-work strategies might also look to Automattic, the now 15-year-old, heavily venture-backed company that is parent to the publishing platform WordPress; the platform for discovering long-form writing content, Longreads; the comment-filtering service Akismet; and, as of last year, the former social media giant Tumblr; among other businesses.
Automattic, which now employs more than 1,000 employees, has been nearly fully distributed from its founding days, and became entirely so in 2017, when the company shut its San Francisco office and told employees they could work from wherever they choose. At the time, founder and CEO Matt Mullenweg told Quartz that most employees were already opting not to come into the co-working space it was providing, so it reasoned its money could be better spent

At WebDevStudios (WDS), we are very familiar with remote work since this is our norm; and we love to share what we have learned to help others.

Current State of WordPress Themes - Analysis and Recommendations

I am writing this post on the history and current state of WordPress themes. Since I’ve been using WordPress there has been a big shift in themes and I think another one is underway. I’m looking at WordPress themes because today, as much as every before, it is important to pick a good theme. In this post I’ll look at the evolution of WordPress themes, page builders and Gutenberg. I’ll test some of the most popular themes to see how they handle Gutenberg and make some recommendations for the future. The Rise of the General Purpose Theme
Back in the old days, people purchased niche themes appropriate for their site: a restaurant theme, church theme, lawyer theme, dentist theme and so on.
Freelancers and agencies who built lots of sites joined theme clubs that had a large selection of themes available and that regularly released new ones.
It is no coincidence that general purpose themes developed in tandem with page builders. Elegant Themes has released 87 themes over the years, but now only Divi and Extra are featured. Divi was one of the first widely popular general purpose themes. It is a stylish and highly customizable theme coupled with a page builder that

As a WordPress user, adding Cloudflare to your site can help boost site performance and reduce the impact of malicious bots and hackers. How?

The New Normal - How COVID19 is affecting consumer behaviours

Business | blog.weglot.com | Apr. 30, 2020

While the impact of the COVID19 pandemic continues to reverberate through global economies, it remains difficult to discern when we might return to a semblance of ‘’normality’’. Yet, whether it’s in six months or two years down the line, there will come a day when restaurants, nightclubs, and brick and mortar retailers can reopen. However, while on the surface things might appear as they were, the change in consumer behaviour we are currently witnessing may not just exist in the short term, rather what we may see is an evolution of behaviours and see the establishment of a new set of norms – redefining our global commercial landscape.
In order to grasp an understanding of what these long term implications might be, we need to look at early signs of shifts in behaviour, understand what consumer behaviour is impacted by, and whether these trends are likely to continue into the future.
What’s for sure is that a change is coming, and businesses ought to be aware of this and adapt their commercial approach accordingly.

Cache Busting Scripts and Styles

The cache busting query string is useful for instructing a browser to use a “new” version of an asset when that asset has been modified. Here, WDS Lead Engineer, Richard Aber, walks us through cache busting scripts and styles.

Cache Busting Scripts and Styles

Development | webdevstudios.com | 24 days ago

All browsers implement a private, client-side browser cache. When a browser visits a page, it downloads the scripts and stylesheets (amongst other assets) into its cache. This caching is beneficial to performance, reducing network traffic and page load times. Other pages on a site may implement the same assets. So, it is faster to reuse those assets from cache than it is to download them again on subsequent page loads. However, this same caching mechanism can also be a hindrance, under certain circumstances. If, for example, you make changes to your custom WordPress theme’s scripts and stylesheets, browsers may not see those changes, if they have already cached those assets during a previous visit. One tried and true method for dealing with this is the cache busting query string. This has been a useful approach for instructing a browser to use a “new” version of an asset when that asset has been modified. When a script or stylesheet’s source URL changes with a cache busting query string, the browser sees it as a new and unique URL. So customstyle.css?ver=1.0.1 is considered distinct from customstyle.css?ver=1.0.0. If the browser had already cached ?ver=1.0.0,

How is Coronavirus Affecting WordPress Plugin and Theme Shops?

Plugins | freemius.com | Apr. 22, 2020

There are a lot of uncertainties in the world right now due to coronavirus. Lockdowns have been placed on at least 20% of the global population, which has changed people’s lives very quickly (myself included). Everyone has some big questions on their minds: How bad will it get for my family, my business, my country, and the world? While many of us are stuck at home, let’s keep in mind that we’re all in the battle against the virus together. There’s a lot we can do in the meantime to prepare our plugin and theme businesses to be more successful on the other side, starting with looking at data to forecast where we might be in the next few months. While some companies are growing and hiring, others are struggling to adapt to the changing situation and declining rapidly. Through all this, we’ve seen global internet usage spike 10-20% because of the increase in people staying at home.
All these factors come together to impact WordPress developers differently, but one of the biggest indicators for WordPress as a whole – and specifically for plugin and theme devs – includes data on downloads, active installs, and new sales.
