How to Analyze Your WordPress Site's Performance

Tutorials | competethemes.com | 8 hours ago

This guide is written for anyone who wants to learn the fundamentals of WordPress performance optimization. For many WordPress beginners, their vocabulary for understanding website performance consists of “fast” and “slow.”
Like with all topics, you can’t understand the subject matter well without learning the terminology first.
In this post, you’ll learn a few new terms and use a free tool to help you better understand your site’s performance.
How to measure your site’s performance
There are lots of tools for measuring a website’s performance, but in this post, we’ll be working exclusively with the popular GTMetrix performance grader.
GTMetrix will score your website’s performance based on both the Google PageSpeed Insights test and YSlow. It also provides a handful of practical metrics to further demystify your load times.
To use this tool, all you have to do is copy & paste your website’s URL into the field on the homepage and hit Enter.
GTMetrix will run a few tests over the course of about 20 seconds, and then you’ll see a report like this:

How to Add Schema Markup to WordPress and WooCommerce Sites

How to Add Schema Markup to WordPress and WooCommerce Sites

Community | bit.ly | 2 days ago

Schema markup can give your SEO a boost, providing additional data to search engines as well as making better use of other tools like social media platforms and Google knowledge panels. There are several ways through which you can add this markup to your site, either by installing a plugin or by manually adding the right code.
In this post, we’ll explain what Schema markup is, show you some of the benefits, and give you some examples. You’ll also learn how to add Schema markup to your WordPress site.
Try a free demo
What’s Schema Markup?
Schema markup is a kind of metadata (referred to as microdata) that’s added to your site to give search engines more information about what’s going on. In the past, we’ve used HTML tags to provide this kind of information to search engines.
Things like title tags, meta descriptions, and meta keywords (no longer relevant) have all been useful to tell search engines what a site is about.
But that doesn’t give search engines all the information they need to be able to fully understand what your site is about and who it would appeal to. And that’s where adding Schema markup to WordPress comes in.

Remote co-working day: the secret to effective remote collaboration

As a fully remote business from the outset, we have good insights into how to work remotely effectively. With more people working remotely, this seemed like an ideal time to contribute. This post is about one idea, which you can copy pretty easily: the remote co-working day. We’ll start by looking at the problem we’re solving, and then how we do it. All this is super-actionable, and it's written so you can easily copy and implement yourself.

Remote co-working day: the secret to effective remote collaboration

Community | getellipsis.com | 11 hours ago

There’s a lot going on right now, and this is part of our contribution to helping. As a fully remote business from the outset, we have good insights into how to work remotely effectively. With more people working remotely, this seemed like an ideal time to contribute. I hope this is useful, and enjoy! – Alex. There’s been a lot of “how to work from home” content around recently, and some good advice for people who are dealing with their first week or two of remote working. Ellipsis has been fully remote since we started, and so whilst most of our team is now “locked down”, we’re able to carry on pretty much as normal.
Remote working is hard, and over the years we’ve created a number of systems to help us work effectively. I do think that remote work is better when done well, but that’s an important caveat. You do have to adapt from working in the office, and unless you put in place systems to help you do so, you may well have a bad experience over the next couple of weeks and then dismiss it.
That’d be a shame, as working remotely has huge advantages: more flexibility, happier team members, and an ability to hire and

Filter your action – WordPress hooks collision

Did you know that actions and filters in WordPress are essentially the same things? And when you use the same hook handle in action and filter, they can collide giving an unexpected result!

Filter your action – WordPress hooks collision

Development | btb.works | 14 hours ago

Did you know that actions and filters are the same things in WordPress? Because of that, you can filter the action and vice versa. Let me show you an example of this conflict. WordPress has this concept of hooks. Actions are meant to just do an action on a particular event and filters are meant to pass a variable through a pipe. But in reality, add_action() is just a wrapper for add_filter(). You don’t believe me? Check the source code.
This means if we have the following code:
add_filter( 'example', '__return_false' );
$val = apply_filters( 'example', true ); // This is `false` now.
We can do this as well:
add_action( 'example', '__return_false' ); // add_action instead of add_filter.
$val = apply_filters( 'example', true ); // This is `false` now.
It will still work!
It doesn’t work the other way around
You can add a filter to action, but the problem is that do_action() doesn’t return any value.
So you cannot do in any circumstance:
$val = do_action( 'example' ); // $val will always be `null`.
Thus you cannot:
add_filter( 'example', '__return_false' );
$val = do_action( 'example', true ); // `null`.
Action and filter with the same handle
This can be a problem in

Benefits of Integrating Salesforce with WordPress

Business | webdevstudios.com | 6 days ago

By now, you probably already know what WordPress is and that over a third of the web uses this Content Management System (CMS). And, you probably have heard of Salesforce, one of the leading Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platforms. However, using those two terms in the same sentence may seem strange. As both an end-user of WordPress and Salesforce at one time, I am here to tell you that you not only can but should use them in the same sentence. I imagine that someone at some point said your business is only as good as your leads are. If you aren’t capturing leads on your website, then you need to start. Capturing leads on your site and stopping there might not be the best way for you to manage your potential customers, though. By integrating Salesforce with WordPress, you can keep WordPress as your CMS, where you simply manage content, and Salesforce as your CRM, where you manage your customer relationships. It might sound to you that it is counter intuitive to integrate these two powerhouses of software just to manage them separately, but by the end of this blog post, you will see why and how it’s not counter intuitive at all.

Coronavirus: 20 WordPress Community Leaders Share Their Thoughts

Community | codeinwp.com | 6 days ago

WordPress is being used by millions and, as the Coronavirus circles the world, it is impacting the WordPress industry overall. At the beginning of this pandemic, I was interested to see how various WordPress entities are being affected, so I’ve reached out to business leaders and independent professionals in our industry to learn what they’re doing to keep things going. With all the crazy past days, I wasn’t expecting lots of replies. To my surprise, many people made the extra effort to stop for a moment and share their thoughts with the rest of us. Each time I got a reply, I rushed to see what people are going through, what their struggles are and how they are holding up in such unexpected times that we’re living.
The things you will read are very different as people are going through various challenges. Some deal with adjustments for working remotely. Others are figuring out ways to keep their income and support their employees. Many are struggling with focus while dealing with an unpredictable future. And most end on a positive note and a feeling of hope and longing for togetherness.

How to Work Remotely with Kids at Home

Has the current pandemic forced you to work remotely from home? This may seem ideal, but if you have kids at home, too, it can be disruptive. WDS Frontend Engineer, JC Palmes, is a homeschooling mom. She offers an abundance of educational resources to keep your children engaged while you work.

How to Work Remotely with Kids at Home

Community | webdevstudios.com | 8 days ago

We are currently in the middle of an unprecedented crisis. Face masks, alcohol, hand sanitizers, and toilet paper are all gone, and those who thought that the COVID-19 is “just like the flu” are all facing that fact that staying at home is best for everyone. For a company like WebDevStudios where everyone is 100% remote, it’s just business as usual. But a lot of us have kids, and with school out, work is disrupted because you are now faced with keeping a child or two engaged in something just so you can continue to work. This is where I come in. My family is a homeschooling family. We’ve been homeschooling for nine years now and both my hubby and I have been working from home for over a decade. We have learned a lot over the years, and I’d love to share some valuable information and resources with everyone who is struggling to work remotely with kids at home. Disclaimer: IT IS NOT EASY. You will need a LOT of PATIENCE and TRY to remember that they’re your kids and you LOVE them.

Top 6 Strategies for Driving Traffic to Your Photography Website

Top 6 Strategies for Driving Traffic to Your Photography Website

Community | resizemyimg.com | 14 hours ago

Creating a site for your business or freelance work as a photographer takes a lot of effort. Firstly because all the images that are uploaded to the site have to be well-shot and well-edited visuals that have been “hand-picked” by the photographer to be the best representation of his/her raw talent and skill. Secondly, when creating a site that is supposed to serve as an online gallery/portfolio, special attention has to be put into the design, layout and the overall aesthetics of the site because how the site and the photos posted to it look will be what makes a potential client want to hire that specific photographer or keep looking somewhere else. Despite putting a lot of work into having amazing photos and the perfect site, many photographers struggle to have any meaningful amount of traffic reaching their site.
The reasons why this happens vary from site to site, but there’s one thing that all those sites have in common, and that is the opportunity to employ certain strategies that might give their traffic rates a boost.

Tutorials | translatepress.com | 9 days ago

What is WordPress localization, really? The term sounds mysterious enough. It’s no wonder that many WordPress website owners have a tough time understanding what WordPress localization is, and how to do it effectively. Is WordPress localization about making your site multilingual and translating it for overseas markets?

And, if you’re a developer, is it about preparing your theme or plugin for translation?
We’re going to answer all these questions in this guide to WordPress localization.
First things first:
What is WordPress localization?
In a nutshell:
Localization is the process of adapting a product (or content) to a specific locale, language, or local market.
This adaptation process usually involves translating the item in question to some local language.

Out of respect to the current health crisis, WordCamps across the globe are being canceled or postponed.

From day one, WebDevStudios (WDS) has operated successfully as a 100% distributed company. We know WordPress, and we know remote work. That also means we know where to find the best resources for an online WordPress education.

Staying Connected to the WordPress Community

Even though WordCamps and WordPress Meetups across the globe are being cancelled, there are still ways to stay connected with the WordPress community. Here are some ideas.

Staying Connected to the WordPress Community

Community | webdevstudios.com | 15 days ago

Even though people are refraining from gathering in groups right now, there are still lots of ways you can continue your WordPress education and get your WordPress community fix. Mr. Rogers is often quoted during hard times:
When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’
This couldn’t be truer in the WordPress community, in general, and it’s increasingly evident as more and more people self-isolate. For example, as office employees are starting to work from home for the first time, remote workers are offering tips and support. By staying connected with the WordPress community, you can help lift spirits (including your own), reduce feelings of isolation, and find strength to help make it through this rough patch. Here are some ways you can do that.
Virtual WordCamps
Most WordCamps that were scheduled between now and June 1 have been cancelled or postponed. For many, WordCamps are the only time we get to connect with other WordPress community members in person all year. We look forward to them and all the excitement they bring.

Community | blog.weglot.com | 16 days ago

As the status of the COVID-19 virus continues to change on a day-by-day basis, and businesses start to adapt to a new way of working, we wanted to share a little about things here at Weglot. Firstly, we hope you are all keeping safe. It’s certainly been a very humbling period of time for all of us around the world. Whilst we can’t change the situation, we can help by staying at home as much as possible to help our health systems as much as possible.
In terms of business, whilst for our team nothing changes and we’re lucky enough to be able to continue working remotely, we do understand and sympathize immensely with companies that cannot carry on and we can’t even begin to imagine the impact this pandemic will have on people all over the world.
In particular, how the virus will change the way many of our users do business and the communities we’ve enjoyed helping and watching grow over the last few years of working within our industry.
Something we wanted to do in the hope of supporting the situation where we can – is to offer temporary Weglot accounts to any website related to providing information about COVID-19. We feel it’s important to be
