A one page WordPress theme helps you to create a fully-featured website all on a single page. This is unlike traditional websites where you have more than one page e.g., Home, About Us, Contact Us etc.
By keeping your readers on a single page, you increase your conversion rates multiple times since the user needn’t follow links to find content or make a purchase. And contrary to popular belief, one page WordPress themes are suitable for all businesses – big or small.
Without further ado, let’s dive in.

Why is content marketing important to your business? Read this small guide to building an effective content marketing strategy to grow your brand.
Whenever it comes to digital marketing, we all have heard that content is king. It will be like over saying but it is a fact that content marketing strategy has been stayed for so long. Yeah, content marketing holds the priority in the world of digital marketing. As it holds the power to inspire and convert the potential customer in near future. Content marketing also showcases your authority.
Content marketing is not just writing a few blogs-articles or add more pages to your website. It is really complex and believes me, it is a lot more than what you think.
It has a very broad spectrum. Each website is unique with different business goals. Hence content strategies also differ.
Let’s explore what is exactly content marketing?
Creating and distributing valuable information consistently to target your niche audience is content marketing. It is a strategic sure shot approach to reach your targeted audience but it is quite a slow process.
In recent years, it has been found that many top-notch brands have focused on generating content as much as possible.
Content Gives Compounding Rates of Return.

The usability issues we've encountered in Profile Builder and how we solved them by acting on user feedback. Graphs included.
Improving your product’s user experience is an ongoing task. Or at least, it should be. Adding feature after feature in the hope of attracting more customers can easily become the norm and usability starts suffering. Without focusing on the big picture and constantly asking why, it’s easy to get off track. We’re guilty of it as well.
Usability, or simply put, ease of use, should be your number one priority. Trying to be everything for everyone is a clear path to disaster.
This is of course, easier said than done.
In this article, we’ll summarize the usability issues we’ve encountered in Profile Builder , our first and most popular plugin, and how we solved them.
Keep in mind we’re by no means usability experts, just constantly trying to improve our products.
How do you know you have a usability problem?
In order to fix it, you first need to be aware it exists.
So we did something we should have done a long time ago, which is ask users who install, use and then remove Profile Builder from their website, what’s the reason for it.
Just ask people why they stopped using your product and you’ll be surprised by how many are willing to share
In this tutorial I talk about how I built a simple. responsive price table using native Gutenberg Columns.
Last week I worked on an upcoming tutorial for a popular online publication on how to style the Gutenberg Columns block (I’ll be sure to send that along when it comes out). As as result, I decided to experiment to see what you could reasonable do, and came up with this Gutenberg Price Table: https://codepen.io/jcasabona/pen/RYvEYd. In this tutorial, we’ll go over some of the things we need to do to make this happen. Requirements
There are few requirements / constraints:
It has to be responsive
The stacking order for the columns needs to reflect content priority (e.g., the most important package should be the top one)
?While I won’t do a full blown tutorial on how I did this (you can look for the upcoming tutorial for that), I will highlight some important parts aspects.
How Gutenberg Columns Work
There are three things to know about Gutenberg Columns:
At the time of this writing, they use Flexbox. Originally they used CSS Grid, but the core team decided to switch to ?Flexbox for the better browser support
There are 2 classes by default: wp-block-columns for the overall columns container and wp-block-column
Over the last few months, we’ve been focussing on improving the way we manage our projects using Trello to communicate and organise our tasks. Here’s how we have been doing it.

In this guide, I’ll outline the key parts of an effective website specification and why they’re important.
What is a website specification?
A website specification is a document that articulates the project’s goals, objectives and tactics. It should outline constraints, such as budget, deadlines, or technical restraints. It can also include project details such as the team involved, for example, stakeholders or points of contact.

Our clients have need and deadlines. Here are some things we do to ensure that we deliver their WordPress website projects on time.
The past month, I have been watching from my home office the comings and goings of an array of contractors at my neighbor’s house. They are building an addition to their home, preparing for the birth of their first child. I have watched the frenzied movements with curiosity and, I am not afraid to admit, a bit of anxiety knowing that her due date was quickly approaching. As a Project Manager, I started to think this is very similar to the way our clients come to WebDevStudios (WDS). Much like my neighbors, our clients have a need and a deadline to go with it. Perhaps their timeline for a new website corresponds to an upcoming event or a new fiscal year. Regardless, we respect these due dates and deliver their website projects on time. Here’s how: We obtain assets early.
First, we ask for all assets, third-party integrations, hosting information, etc. early on in the project life cycle. If we wait till we get to the point in development when we actually need them and there is a hiccup, it inevitably would set us back. By simply asking upfront, we eliminate those disruptions. Even if our clients don’t have this information at the start, it gets the ball rolling sooner
Problems producing content for your website? Check out this post with 10 types of WordPress content that will attract great traffic!
As a WordPress content writer myself, I have questions that keep bugging me before writing a new piece, one of those is “Where am I aiming at?” In every circumstance, before any further aims, my very first answer would be “To attract as much traffic as possible!” Writing with a purpose not only motivates you but also gives you the clues you might need. For example, when I am set to write for great traffic, the next question is always “Well then, what kind of content should I put into?”
Of course, it must be something informative, intriguing, earning shares & likes, and differentiates me from others! Producing such content is not an easy game as writing depends a lot on inspiration. When it comes to work, however, you have to pull off an article even if you’re in the mood or not! So, work systematically! Know what types of posts that will draw traffic, and just follow the rules while adding a few of your own colors!
Not yet to know those content types, or should I say the rules? Here I am to show you the 10 types of WordPress content that will attract great traffic!

Meet the WordXpress team that's made up of 4 WordPress and design gurus plus one as-needed developer which can help you with maintenance & support
WordXpress used to be known as Fiddler Online. They were hyper-focused on first designing and building WordPress websites, then maintaining and supporting them. They had been doing that for most of a decade. Just last year they got more requests for maintenance & support of existing sites and realized there was no reason they couldn’t do that. The more they researched, the more it seemed obvious that should be their focus. So they have dropped the design and build portion, and are focusing solely on the maintenance and support they have been doing for 9+ years right now. Along with that, they decided to rebrand as WordXpress since it’s just a great name and conveys the fact they only work with WordPress.
WordXpress team is made up of four WordPress and design gurus plus one as-needed developer, at the moment. Two of them are in the US, with two in the Philippines. As they grow, they hope to add team members in more time zones so their team can work regular hours, but their members will be covered 24/7.

WordPress Gutenberg Editor 3.9.0 updates and some cool new feature additions.
This new release completes some cool additions to the editor. It includes the ability to create reusable templates by selecting multiple blocks in the editor. It then allows exporting and importing these templates using a JSON file transport. There’s also a visual diff mechanism for comparing options when a block was detected as invalid (which could scale in the future to improved UX for revisions as a whole), toolbar groups can be defined as collapsible into a dropdown to better organize available block controls. There’s also the addition of a much clearer drag handle for drag and drop block operations next to the block arrow controls. It’s also possible to convert an image into a cover image and back, retaining the caption as the main text among many other small improvements and fixes.
Add support for creating reusable blocks out of multi-selected groups of blocks not just individual blocks. This means the ability to easily save templates out of an existing set of blocks.
Add support for importing and exporting reusable blocks (using a JSON file transport). Note that locality of resources can be a problem if importing on a separate WordPress site.

This is an in-depth step by step guide to adding CPT to WordPress without code. In the past, you had to manually code CPT content you created using CPT plugins like ACF. Now, you can use Elementor to visually edit and style your dynamic content.
WordPress is not just a blogging platform. By using Custom Post Types, you can build all kinds of complex websites, turning WordPress into a full content management system. There are several plugins, including Elementor, which help you manage custom post types and build content that is custom fit to your needs.
Whether you are interested in adding movie reviews, real estate listings and even WooCommerce products, all this functionality is possible thanks to custom post types.
Post Types are “types of content”, grouped in a structured way within WordPress. Because WordPress’ most famous post type is called “Posts”, it is easy to make the mistake of thinking that Post Types are inherently about WordPress Posts. But a Post Type is a generic term that encompasses all types of content.
Currently, there are 8 default WordPress post types.
User Data Request
Most users are familiar with the two most common post types: Posts and Pages. Although similar, Posts are time-based listings while Pages are hierarchical in structure, with Parent > Child relationships. Also, Posts make use of taxonomies

In this interview David Aguilera, co-founder of Nelio Software, shares some precious business insights they've been able to reach in their growing company, just in time for WordCamp Barcelona 2018...
David Aguilera is the Chief Product & Quality Officer at rapidly growing Nelio. We met at the last WordCamp in Paris and, after chatting for a while, I figured it would be interesting to get his take as a WordPress product & services guy and publish it for the Freemius blog readers. David, thanks for agreeing to do this interview!
Let’s start by getting to know you a bit – what is your educational and professional background?
Thanks for having me. I’m really happy to do this!
I come from Barcelona, Spain – or, well, at least it was Spain when this interview took place because right now there’s this pro-independence movement in Catalonia and… nobody knows how it’ll all end!
Pirate Forms, a popular forms plugin created by ThemeIsle has been acquired by Awesome Motive in an all-cash deal. As part of this acquisition, Pirate Forms will be retired in favor of the more powerful WPForms plugin.
Today, I’m excited to announce that we have acquired Pirate Forms, a popular WordPress contact form and SMTP plugin, with over 300,000 active installs. Pirate Forms was created by ThemeIsle, the company behind popular WordPress themes Zerif and Hestia. They built the plugin in 2015 to add a simple contact form solution to their fast-growing themes. At the time, most WordPress form plugins were not beginner-friendly.
That’s why in 2016, we launched WPForms with a single mission: create the most beginner friendly WordPress form plugin in the market.
Since then, WPForms has passed over 1 million active installs and has an average rating of 4.9 out of 5 (with over 2400 five-star ratings).
I have met Ionut (ThemeIsle founder) at numerous business conferences, and we always talked about increasing collaboration between our two companies. We both put user experience as our #1 priority and have a lot of similar philosophies regarding the WordPress product ecosystem. In his recent visit to United States and Awesome Motive HQ, we furthered our discussion on ways to work together and shared our respective growth plans for our companies.
During our conversations, we both agreed that
The Millennial market an important one, but often difficult to attract using old school practices. Learn how to use your website to attract Millennials.
Did you know that Americans aged 25 to 34 had the highest monthly internet usage recorded in 2017? It’s no secret that with more and more people going online globally, we’re more connected than ever before. But the one group you should be considerate of are the Millennials.

Classified generally as individuals born between 1980 and early 2000s, Millennials are not only utilizing the internet the most, but they’re known for expecting transparency, personalized experiences, and a deeper social impact from brands with whom they engage. The big question is, is your website built to speak to them? And if not, how are you going to build a website to attract Millennials and engage with them in an authentic way? Think about the statistics below to orient you to the way a Millennial thinks and operates.

Just in case anyone was wondering whether the Genesis theme framework was going to be compatible with Gutenberg, here's a definitive answer from StudioPress & WP Engine
Gutenberg is the future of WordPress. It brings the promise of new functionality, enabling developers and designers to create reusable modules (“blocks”) for design and content, while empowering end-users to combine and customize those modules to do everything from launching twenty simple landing pages in an hour to building a complex new digital experience. There are also valid concerns with the project, on subjects such as launch timeline and backwards-compatibility. A healthy path forward means addressing concerns while embracing the new benefits.
There are some key questions we want to help you answer such as…
How will Genesis support the transition to Gutenberg?
How will this result in new, wonderful features for the designers, developers, and end users of Gutenberg-enabled WordPress sites?
How will Genesis make it easier and more efficient to create new Gutenberg-powered themes?
How will Genesis help you lead with Gutenberg?
We’re going to be posting heavily in the coming months on studiopress.blog to help address these questions and to share the work the newly expanded Genesis engineering team is doing to help you lead with Gutenberg.

An article on why and how to sell your WordPress plugin using Freemius.
Starting a plugin business these days is hard. The market feels saturated and it looks like that everything you think of is already there. In such a saturated market, how will people find your plugin? I have thought of the same thing. I’ve decided that I want to focus on developing (and a little marketing) but I don’t want to lose my energy on maintaining a licensing solution. In this article, I’ll try to make it easier for you to start a plugin business with Freemius. Why Freemius?
There are of course a lot of options you could choose to sell your WordPress plugins with. One of the most popular ones is using Easy Digital Downloads and their Software Licensing. Another one is using WooCommerce and their Software Add-on.
There are a bunch of other options which I’ve described in my other article on making money with WordPress products.
I’ve chosen Freemius because they have a platform that just works with a 5-minute integration SDK. They also work on extending their platform with new features and improve existing ones. One of the great things is that you don’t have to worry about payment gateways, VAT and similar stuff that involves transactions.
Learn about the SEO impact of managing multiple websites, and the pros and cons of using WordPress Multisite to do so from SEO expert, Pam Aungst.
WordPress Multisite is a feature of the core WordPress.org software that allows multiple websites to be powered by a single installation of WordPress. There are several considerations to evaluate when determining if managing multiple websites through a Multisite network is right for you. But before we talk about whether or not to use Multisite, let’s discuss whether or not you need multiple websites at all.
Use Cases for Deploying Multiple Websites
There are several reasons to build and manage multiple websites for one business, including:
Companies that have more than one physical location
Global organizations with divisions in multiple countries that require content in multiple languages
Large companies that have separate divisions or subsidiaries for separate purposes and audiences
Educational institutions with multiple campuses and/or different schools within one university network
Companies that acquired another company, yet want to maintain separate brands
Companies that want to deploy a microsite strategy for either SEO or building brand reputation for a specialization
Sometimes the decision of whether or not to deploy and start managing multiple websites is

The WordPress ecosystem has been trying to improve the site editing experience since before plugins entered core in WordPress 1.2 (2004). There have been page builders, theme frameworks, front-end editors, etc. all trying to improve the WordPress site editing experience. Now core is doing it via Gutenberg. Here's why WordPress needs it and what it means for page builders.
WordPress is the largest CMS in the world, powering ~1/3 of all websites. The WordPress editing experience hasn’t changed much in over a decade and Gutenberg now aims to completely reinvent it. That’s a big deal. It won’t be easy, but here’s 1) why it’s worth it and 2) what it means for page builders.
The Wild West
The WordPress ecosystem has been trying to improve the site editing experience since before plugins entered core in WordPress 1.2 (2004). There have been page builders, theme frameworks, front-end editors, etc. all trying to improve the WordPress site editing experience.
Like every meaningful advancement, there are these wild west days of churn to find something that works. A lot of great tools and learnings have come out of this, but it has also led to fragmentation across dozens of page builders, theme frameworks, etc. that don’t work well together.
If you’ve been around WordPress for a while you’ve likely seen some cringe-worthy examples of this. For example, a site with a bloated “multipurpose” theme with bundled functionality…using a page builder…and using WooCommerce or some similar monstrosity.
