What Is WebP And How To Enable It On Your WordPress Website?

Community | wpnewsify.com | 6 hours ago

Over half of an average web page is made up of images. Therefore if you can optimize these images, then you can save a lot of space on your server as well as decrease your pages load time. Ideally, you will want to compress every image that you upload onto your website. This should be done without altering the quality of the images.
If compression does not take place, then the speed of your website will be affected. Then, visitors will become frustrated with how slow your website is, and may ultimately end up leaving your site.
If an image file size is too large, then it will take a long time to download when a visitor clicks onto your page. If it takes a long time to download, then the whole website will be slowed down.
Speed is a significant factor when it comes to SEO. Google will take into account how long it takes for your site to load when ranking it in search results.
Which Image Format To Choose?
There are several file types that you can use on the website. GIF, PNG, and JPEG tend to be the most often choice.
In most cases, JPEG is the preferred option because it is of high quality when the picture has a lot of colors. The file sizes are also quite small.
If you have an image

WDS and Microsoft 365 Partner Together to Create a Custom AMP Experience

WebDevStudios recently partnered with Microsoft 365 to create a custom AMP experience. Read to learn more about our development for this client.

WDS and Microsoft 365 Partner Together to Create a Custom AMP Experience

What Is AMP? In short, AMP is an HTML Framework, which helps pages load faster and look better than standard HTML pages. The framework prevents developers from shooting themselves in the foot by having strict coding standards and by requiring all pages to be validated before they can be “Amplified.” If you want to learn more, check out a recent blog post, “AMP ⚡More Than Just Mobile Pages.”
Discovery and Scope
When our client, Microsoft, came to us last month, they had already rolled out AMP on another one of the web properties, Office Products, and were ready to get Microsoft 365 on AMP. The goal was to provide mobile users with a better experience when searching for Microsoft Office products.
We knew that we wanted to leverage the official AMP for WordPress plugin, and we’d need to customize templates to account for minor design adjustments on the blog post template. The stakeholders required custom pixel tracking, support for their custom videos, as well as a header and footer that closely matched their current design. Finally, this project would need to go live by mid-August.
Development
Knowing we only had two weeks of development and QA time, we got

Build a Personal Brand: 5 Data-Backed Reasons Why You Should Do It

According to the latest conducted interviews, people engage in personal branding, even though, sometimes, their efforts might be insufficient. Building your brand from the ground is now a rapidly growing trend and it is essential for cultivating careers.

Build a Personal Brand: 5 Data-Backed Reasons Why You Should Do It

Community | codeinwp.com | 3 hours ago

As Gary Vaynerchuk, entrepreneur, New York Times best-selling author, speaker and internet personality puts it: “It’s important to build a personal brand because it’s the only thing you’re going to have. Your reputation online, and in the new business world is pretty much the game, so you’ve got to be a good person. You can’t hide anything, and more importantly, you’ve got to be out there at some level.”
Another reason for managing your personal brand is that once you commit to putting the best version of yourself out there, you may well find that your ideal clients will start finding you.
Here are five data-backed reasons why freelancers should take the time to build a strong personal brand:
1. There’s a lot of competition, and your personal brand can help you stand out
Freelancers are predicted to become the U.S. workforce majority by 2027, with nearly 50% of millennial workers already freelancing — more than any other generation.[1]
Half of the United Kingdom’s working population will be self-employed in the next 5 years. And independent workers comprise the fastest-growing group in the European Union labor market.

Headline Writing Rules: How To Write Catchy Blog Titles?

Community | wpblogdesigner.net | 6 hours ago

Nowadays, blogging is not that simple as it used to be. There are more bloggers in every niche, and the competition is ever-growing. Does this mean you can’t make a living as a blogger? Of Course not. You just need to know how.
The answer to this is very simple, make your headlines irresistible such that a person gets compelled to click on your blog title.
It is rightly said that one should take more time in preparation than the actual task itself. This thing fits with blogging as well, one should spend more time on writing the blog titles than actually writing the blog because it will be your headline and title that will make your blog be clicked on by potential readers.
Not many read the entire blog in one go, it’s the catchy headlines and titles that catch the reader’s eyes. So, one should primarily focus on the blog headings and titles.

Hello everyone! Today we are interviewing Raitis Sevelis, the Head of Product at Visual Composer. I had the pleasure of meeting Michael Makijenko, Visual Composer CEO, and Raitis at several WordCamps, including WordCamp Riga, Visual Composer’s hometown, where I had the opportunity to give a crash course on building sustainable plugin and theme business in the subscription economy. Raitis and I had the chance to hang in Tel-Aviv when we both attended Press4Word and then WordCamp US a few months afterward. Since then, I have regularly met with Raitis and Michael at various events and conferences around the globe, and we became good friends.
Raitis, thank you so much for doing this interview. Let’s start by learning a little bit about you: Where are you based and what is your background?

9 Important WordPress Maintenance Tasks to Perform Regularly

Community | wpnewsify.com | 1 day ago

Having a WordPress website for your business is good. But if you are not maintaining it well off, you are wasting your time and money. Working online, seeking audience and customers, and trying to make sales is only possible if you are tweaking up the website regularly. Just like the way your shop needs cleaning, dusting, a heating or cooling solution, and an attractive interior makeover regularly. An online shop works the same as you decorate and add banners to attract passersby to your physical stores. The significant change among a general store around a busy street and a webshop is that of technology.
A layperson may perceive that setting up a website is a one-time expense and it will be live in the same manner for long. But, the reality is revealed once you go through terms like domain, hosting, WordPress web development, installation, and customization, plugins, etc. This opens up your mind, and then you can understand different technologies that are involved in showing your business to the online audience.

Fixing oEmbed with a Custom Provider

In his first-ever blog post for WebDevStudios, Backend Engineer, Evan Hildreth, tells us what's exciting about oEmbed and shares a fix he learned during Five for the Future.

Fixing oEmbed with a Custom Provider

The story of my blogging career over the past few years could be summed up as, “How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Reblog.” There’s something that’s so much fun about finding something cool and sharing it on my blog without worrying about saying something poignant or ultimately meaningless in an effort to “add to the conversation.” Sometimes it’s enough just to amplify the conversation, or share that video. This is why I’m so excited about oEmbed. It’s a standard API that takes a given link and turns it into an embeddable… thing. It’s most commonly known as “that thing that turns a YouTube link into a video,” but the underlying technology can be used for any web page. This includes sites like Reddit, Twitter, and Imgur, as well as blogging sites like Tumblr and, yes, WordPress.
WordPress has built-in support for oEmbed, both as a consumer and a provider. This means that not only can you embed other posts into your WordPress post, but other people can embed your posts into their posts!

Prevention is better than cure in WordPress security

Security | wpwhitesecurity.com | 14 days ago

A common misconception is that malicious hackers only target websites with large income, or those that store valuable sensitive information. However, WordPress websites generally get a lot of unwanted attention, which is why it’s important to take preventive measures from the get-go. The good news is that (on top of basic measures such as having a robust updating strategy) WordPress offers you a lot of options to protect your website against hack attacks. Even simple implementations, such as enabling Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) can drastically improve the security of your website or eCommerce store.
In this article, we’ll talk about why preemptive WordPress security is the way to go. We will also highlight five preventive WordPress security measures, so you won’t have to deal with messy cleanups afterward. Let’s get to work!

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.

Who would have thought that podcasts would get so popular? Every day we’re bombarded by cohesive and short information. While there is an ever-growing number of podcast listeners, it is difficult to imagine that longer content such as that would get there.
However, there is nothing unreasonable about it, as podcasts have become the way we learn, keep ourselves informed, and improving our skills. The wonderful thing about podcasts is that it allows multitasking. Many people find that their commute, morning run, or coffee break is more productive if they are listening to a podcast while doing so.

The Ultimate Guide to WordPress Maintenance for Beginners

The world of web design and blogging has drastically changed since WordPress came into existence. It’s been quite a while since the first users were able to create their online journals through WordPress (the first version was released in May of 2003). After that, WordPress has quickly started to evolve and it became more than a simple blogging platform – it’s evolved into a full content management system that’s capable of pretty much everything. But let’s stop here; although the history of WordPress is interesting, not many people care much about it. And we’re sure you’re one of those.What’s important here is that WordPress is used on more than 30% of the entire web, and the platform is getting more popular than ever. Because of that, you can find tens of thousands of plugins & themes that allow everyone to build amazing websites.

How to Create WordPress Child Themes in WordPress (Extended Guide)

Tutorials | kinsta.com | 14 days ago

You’ve been running your WordPress site for a while and it’s been doing what you need it to. But now, you decide you need to customize it. Or maybe you’re creating your site with a theme you’ve downloaded from the theme directory or one you’ve bought, and you realize it doesn’t work in exactly the way you need it to.
