Divi Sensei: Jan Thielemann Started a Plugin Business While Traveling

Business | freemius.com | 13 hours ago

Today we’re excited to interview Jan Thielemann – a self-taught Divi module developer who built his WordPress business Divi Sensei and sells a host of other Divi modules and add-ons! 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! Let’s jump in and find out more… Jan, it’s a pleasure to connect with you and thank you so much for agreeing to do this interview! Please tell us, where are you from and what’s your background? How did you get into coding and development?
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.
I mainly developed backend systems in Java, but in my free time, I explored other

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 | 2 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

How to better manage your WordPress users

Some food for thought and information on how to better manage your WordPress users (multiple users mean more can be done, but also mean more exposure, more mistakes and more risks).

How to better manage your WordPress users

Plugins | wpwhitesecurity.com | 18 hours 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.
In this article, we’re going to go over the challenges of managing a WordPress website with multiple users. Then we highlight three tips to help you do it more efficiently.
The Challenges of Managing a WordPress Site with Multiple Users
When we talk about ‘users’ in the context of this article we’re referring to people with access to your WordPress dashboard. They may be there to help you manage comments, publish new content, or whatever other tasks you assign to them. Depending on the scope of your site, having other people helping you can be a load off your shoulders. However, it also presents a couple of problems:

5 Easy Ways to Better Showcase Your Artwork Online

Community | wpstackable.com | 2 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.
Pièce de Résistance
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 | 23 hours 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 | 2 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).

ThemeIsle Redesign: Here's How It Went and How Much It Cost

Community | codeinwp.com | 5 days ago

I hate to be a buzzkill, but I’m not a fan of redesigns. 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.
Now that the new ThemeIsle design has been launched let’s look back at the previous design, the decisions made, the goals set for the new design, and how it all played out.

This means that over 75% of the people who put one of your products in their cart, will potentially not go through with the sale.

How Yoast Can Become an Attack Vector for Hackers, and How to Stop It - Joe Youngblood

Consultant Joe Youngblood talks about a default setting in Yoast that makes it easier for hacker to harvest usernames, which means hackers have one-half of the combination for automated brute force attacks.

How Yoast Can Become an Attack Vector for Hackers, and How to Stop It - Joe Youngblood

Security | joeyoungblood.com | 5 days ago

TL;DR WordPress creates Author Archives pages for anyone who publishes content on a website sometimes keeping that page live even if that content is transferred to another user.
By default WordPress uses the ‘username’ a user logins in with for the Author Archive page URL and offers no way of changing this.
When Yoast is installed sitemaps are activated by default creating an Author Archive sitemap which contains all the Author URLs complete with usernames.
Hackers can use this file to gain important usernames for a website, making hacking easier by only needing to guess passwords.
This attack vector can be patched by turning off Author Archives in Yoast or if Author Archives are required by editing the URL of author archives in the WordPress code.
Update: Yoast was notified of my concerns earlier this week, has fully reviewed them, and responded. Essentially in their response they stated this wasn’t much of a concern to them though they had discussed it and offered tips. I’ve placed their entire response at the bottom of this article, you can get there by clicking here.

How to Translate WordPress Menu into Multiple Languages

Tutorials | translatepress.com | 16 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.

Building WordPress Websites That Better Respect User Privacy

Some privacy-related items to consider when building your site, including the data collected by third-parties.

Building WordPress Websites That Better Respect User Privacy

Development | speckyboy.com | 10 days ago

In recent years, privacy has become one of the most important topics in our society. With the rise of services that use and sell user data, serious discussions have been taking place regarding best practices and the rights of users. In some cases, they’ve led to government-based regulations such as the EU’s GDPR. However, worldwide there still seems to be quite a lot of confusion, which tends to result in inaction. Unfortunately, web designers seem to be caught in the middle.
What makes things even more difficult is how much we rely on third-party providers that enable all manner of different functionality. Each provider is another link in a privacy chain that may or may not be collecting/using data in an undesirable way.
Nowhere is this more of a challenge than when it comes to building sites with WordPress. That’s not because the CMS doesn’t take privacy seriously – it does. Rather, it’s a combination of being the web’s most-used platform and its ability to tie in with an untold number of services via plugins and themes.
That begs the question: How do we build WordPress websites with privacy in mind?

WordPress has certainly come a long way since it was first launched in 2003 — so too have the WordPress statistics that help to define this powerful software tool. The world’s most popular and widely used content management system now powers 34% of all websites on the internet, but few outside the community of the most loyal WordPress users know the story of how it started.

How to Remove "Powered by WordPress"

Tutorials | kinsta.com | 21 day ago

“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. If you’re running the default theme, it’ll definitely be there. Or depending on your theme, it may have been replaced by a message telling visitors who the theme developer is.
But what if you don’t want an advert for WordPress, or for your theme developer, in your site? What if you’d rather keep the footer for information about you: your site, your business, and your brand?
The good news is that removing that “powered By WordPress” message isn’t difficult. The exact method you use will depend on the way the developer has added it to the theme, but with a little investigative work, it’s possible to work that out and remove the message.
So in this post, I’ll show you how to remove the “powered by WordPress” message and link. I’ll also discuss why you might – or might not – want to remove it.

Similarly, if you’re operating a live site which needs to, unfortunately, go down for a bit when you’re doing maintenance, it’s important to have a maintenance page to fall back to. Luckily, most plugins out there that offer one, also provide the other, so you won’t be required to divide up your software, or your finances (in case you go for a premium option). In order to help you out with this often unfairly overlooked part of websites, we’ve compiled a list of the 11 best plugins that cover everything you’ll need.
