Tide: A path to better code across the WordPress ecosystem

Community | xwp.co | 2 days ago

Involve yourself in enough WordCamps, meetups and community forums, and you start to notice a trend. The same kind of question is asked over and over. It sounds something like… What plugin should I install to do {feature}?
WordPress users have the world’s most popular CMS, with 29% of the web under its wing and 53,000+ plugins, yet there is still a confidence gap when choosing plugins and themes. Right now, WordPress does a great job of providing plugin and theme information related to:
The features
The support you receive
User reviews
These are all part of what makes a good plugin or theme, but there is an important piece missing. This piece of information answers the question…
Will the code I’m about to install break or put my site at risk?
A plugin or theme could deliver the exact range of features you need, with great support, and positive reviews, but if the quality of code it contains is poor, you risk the integrity of your website. A single line of good code can unlock potential for you and your website, but bad code can trigger untold calamity.
Unfortunately, the barrier of entry to writing good code is higher than we would like to admit.

Use Social Proof to Increase Conversions Using WPFomify Plugin

Social Proof Marketing Is The New Black! With the WPFomify Plugin by Puneet we can show our customers who bought your products in real time. That's incredible. We wrote an extensive review of it.

Use Social Proof to Increase Conversions Using WPFomify Plugin

Community | wpcouple.com | 15 hours ago

Generating online sales is the real challenge for any digital business. It’s hard to build trust and make people buy your product. It takes a lot of effort to curate a brand that people can rely on. Displaying real-time customer activity on your product site has become a recent trend in marketing your product. When you are visiting a site and you get to know that people are buying their products in real time, or if any of your recognized community leaders buy them, that improves the trust factor and has a direct impact on sales.
Today, I am supercharged to review a WordPress plugin that does just that it’s called WPFomify. It helps you increase your conversions and sales through social proof marketing. Using this plugin, you can show users’ activities like new subscriptions, purchases, signups, donations and what not.
So, far the best thing about WPFomify is its integration with other popular plugins. It integrates very well with WooCommerce, EDD, etc. I will be discussing it in detail in the later part of the review.
Also, a special shout-out to my friend Puneet Sahalot who’s done an impressive job with this plugin. I think you should really check this one out.

Test PHP 7 Upgrades on a WordPress Staging Site

WordPress recommends that you upgrade to PHP 7: this article provides information about why you should do that, and how you can do it safely by using a staging site.

Test PHP 7 Upgrades on a WordPress Staging Site

Community | wpstagecoach.com | 1 day ago

WordPress recommends that you use PHP version 7 or higher. However, the vast majority of web hosts put your site on version 5.x by default. That means you probably need to update your site to PHP 7. In this post, I’ll talk about why and how to upgrade, and how to make sure the process goes smoothly, with no downtime on your site. What is PHP?
PHP is the programming language that WordPress and many of other CMSs are written in. PHP is very handy for developers, because it can take information from a database and display it on a web page. PHP has been around for a really long time (it is ancient in internet years) and it evolves as the Internet evolves. New versions of PHP are released on a regular basis (or not so regular, since version 6 never made it off the ground and they skipped from 5.6 to 7). Updated versions of the language provide new tools for developers, as well as security improvements for the web as a whole.
Why should I upgrade?
The WordPress team strongly recommends that you use PHP 7 or higher. Your site will run faster and be more secure from hackers. More and more plugins use features that are only available with PHP 7, so there are a lot of plugins that won’t

Gutenberg continues to improve one week after another. Check it out. Getting better with every new release.

What’s New in Gutenberg 1.7? (15th November)

Community | make.wordpress.org | 4 days ago

This next release includes several features and improvements on many levels. We are adding a way to switch between the header toolbar and toolbars attached to the block by opening the toggle menu at the top right and choosing the behaviour. There has been convincing arguments for both approaches so we want to make it easier to test both easily. Other notable features include the ability to transform multiple blocks of the same type into other blocks (like many images into a gallery). There are improvements to meta-boxes (dropping iframes), foundational work for nested blocks and global blocks, many design updates, and initial integration with JS hooks. Add toggle to switch between top-level toolbar and toolbars attached to each block. We have gotten great feedback on the benefits of both approaches and want to expand testing of each.
Ability to transform multiple-selected blocks at once — multiple images into a gallery, multiple paragraphs into lists.
Add @-mention autocomplete for users in a site.
Add data layer for reusable blocks and wp_blocks post type name.
Allow pasting standalone images and uploading them (also supports pasting base64 encoded images).
Allow block nesting

WordPress 4.9 New Features in Action

Community | codeinwp.com | 3 days ago

WordPress 4.9 is like every major WordPress update, in that the community has been circling it since the announcement was made. The list of potential enhancements and features has got everyone buzzing again! It was made clear early that there wouldn’t be a focus on Gutenberg for this release – Gutenberg will be the driver behind WordPress 5.0 next year. However, WordPress 4.9 is one for the loyalists with a couple of additions that have been waiting eight years for inclusion. This WordPress 4.9 release is an opportunity to clear the decks in preparation for Gutenberg watershed sometime next year. In that light, the changes that we see here are overwhelmingly user oriented. With a strong desire to help users with editing and management.
Does it succeed? Should you update immediately? Well, we have been running the rule over 4.9 for months now, and this article will show you its best features in detail, plus the best of the rest:
Here’s what’s new in WordPress 4.9 – the most exciting stuff

The Customizer was always great for going through with big changes. But those changes had to be done en masse, and they went live as soon

How I Built a WordPress Business and Scaled It (Without Employees)

Great article on scaling your WP business and moving from agency into plugins

How I Built a WordPress Business and Scaled It (Without Employees)

Community | torquemag.io | 2 days ago

The best thing about WordPress is that it’s accessible to all. Anyone can start a WordPress business, backed by an amazingly supportive global community. The barriers to entry are low and with only 25 percent of WordPress professionals working full-time, it attracts people wanting a successful business and a flexible lifestyle. But how can you take your WordPress business to the next level? What if you don’t aspire to the traditional route of growing your company and taking on staff, an office, and everything that comes with that?
This is the story of how I co-founded Barn2 Media with my husband Andy, and scaled it from a startup to one of the UK’s best known WordPress agencies with over $300,000 annual revenue. We’ve scaled from a two-person company to a virtual team, and from a web design studio to a plugin business – all without employing a single person.
The Early Days
For years, my husband Andy and I worked traditional jobs while dreaming about starting our own business and building a more flexible lifestyle. We finally took the plunge in late 2009 – Andy quit his day job to start a web design business, which I supported alongside my existing

Community | wedevs.com | 4 days ago

WordPress 4.9 is almost knocking at the door. We are hoping that it will be released in the third week of November 2017. Having Gutenberg Editor in the queue, WordPress is getting bigger with every release. The 4.9 release does not have anything significant like Gutenberg. However, it has many new features, improvements, and tweaks. So, you may be wondering what WordPress 4.9 has to offer. We are going to show you our experience with the latest release while we tested the RC3 (Release Candidate 3).

Interview with Devin Walker of GiveWP

Community | kinsta.com | 6 days ago

You can find Devin on LinkedIn or Twitter. This is our recent interview with him, as part of our Kinsta Kingpin series. Q1: What is your background, & how did you first get involved with WordPress?
When I graduated college from the University of Arizona (Go Wildcats!) I started working in IT at a large corporation. The company I worked for had me working on a lot of Microsoft SharePoint administration and management tasks like building out the company-wide intranet and also helping to expand the system to a customer-facing portal. The work was fun and challenging but I found working with .NET and MS technologies frustrating and difficult. The good thing about it though is it did introduce me to the world of content management systems and piqued my curiosity to see what else was out there.
My first experience in the world of open source world was with Mambo, which eventually would eventually become Joomla. I really liked the simplicity of the platform when compared to SharePoint and how it was free to use. This concept was entirely new to me at the time coming from the world of proprietary MS licensing. Mambo eventually led me to tinkering with Joomla and Drupal and eventually I

“Don’t underestimate the power of your vision to change the world. Whether that world is your office, your community, an industry or a global movement, you need to have a core belief that what you contribute can fundamentally change the paradigm or way of thinking about problems. “ – Leroy Hood, BrainyQuote
Intro
There was a young man from Kolkata, India named Jeet who wanted to share his frustrations about working in the WordPress world. He was struggling to get a decently paid work. Mostly, he was getting a low budget contracts from clients in America or Europe.
On the other side of the world, there was an American guy Topher who listened to him. He wanted to help but as an American, he didn’t have any real experience with the problems bothering Jeet and didn’t really know how to help him.
However, he had the idea to find other people who face similar problems, hear their stories, publish them and in that way help them connect with each other and the whole WordPress community. This in return opened up a whole new sea of possibilities for these people.

WP-SpamShield Plugin Removed from WordPress.org, Author Plans to Pull All Plugins from the Directory

Here WPTavern published a full story on whats going on with WP-SPamShield, Plugin Organizer & Plugin Team and WordPress.org, this is sad but alarming!

WP-SpamShield Plugin Removed from WordPress.org, Author Plans to Pull All Plugins from the Directory

Community | wptavern.com | 7 days ago

The WP-SpamShield plugin was removed from the WordPress.org directory this week due to what the Plugin Review Team has deemed a violation of the guidelines and a possible miscommunication. Two weeks ago, the author of WP-SPamShield and the author of the Plugin Organizer plugin exchanged contentious remarks in a support forum thread where each accused the other of targeting each others’ plugins. This resulted in both parties adding code that disabled the others’ plugins, and both were asked by the Plugin Team to remove the code.
WP-SpamShield’s author, Scott Allen, has published an account of his interactions with the Plugin Team with updates for users who are monitoring the status of the plugin. Although the team rarely discloses why a plugin was removed, representative Mika Epstein responded to Allen when he said he had not received an answer about what guideline the plugin had violated:
Sorry, I thought it was clear that it’s issues regarding the forum guidelines and rule #9:
Intentionally attempting to exploit loopholes in the guidelines.
To whit, you were asked to make a change and did so incompletely. If this was not intentional, then I apologize.

Hi could you tell us a little about yourself and background? Ana: Hi, thanks a lot for inviting us for the interview, it is a pleasure. Before we started with Anariel Design I had just finished Civil Engineering studies and moved to Germany. As I couldn’t find myself in Civil Engineering and wasn’t happy with the studies I finally decided to try something for myself, something I always wanted but didn’t have the opportunity to try, web design. Having Marko’s enormous support (I couldn’t manage this without him) I started to learn to HTML and CSS and then building WordPress themes.
Marko: Hi there, thank you for inviting us to do the interview. To put it short, in my case it is a typical story of a musician that discovered WordPress :). I don’t know if you noticed that connection, but I met so many people in the WordPress community that are or were musicians. It looks like a pattern :). Before that, I studied management, but didn’t find myself in it and wanted to try to make a living being a musician. So I quit the study just a few exams before the end and moved to Germany.

Have you ever had trouble getting women to speak at your events? Us too. Did you know that there’s a solution this? There’s no one perfect solution, but there is a speaker training workshop written by and for female members of the WordPress community. (https://make.wordpress.org/training/handbook/speaker-training/) It busts through women’s typical objections, like “What would I talk about?” and “I don’t know enough about … to give a talk on it.” The training runs through exercises (and public speaking practise opportunities) for finding a topic, crafting good pitches, bios, and outlines, and covers tips to becoming a better speaker.
This workshop has been tested and proven to increase the number of women speakers at meetups and WordCamps in Vancouver, Seattle, and Montreal.
Where do you come in?
We’d like to form a group of passionate folk to run and promote this fantastic workshop. We want everyone to know that this resource exists, and that anyone can pick it up and run it. It’s been designed so that the facilitators don’t need expertise; they don’t even need to be experienced public presenters themselves.

Inside the Home Workplaces of 15 WordPress Experts

Community | wpnewsify.com | 11 days ago

Do you work from home, in an office, or maybe both? Nowadays, there is often an opportunity to be flexible. You can easily work in your home workplace, on a train, in a cafée or travel anywhere in the world, as long as there is an internet connection. You no longer need to be physically in an office or workplace. Hence, many people now work remotely. The world has simply shrunk—at least regarding accessibility.
For everybody who works with WordPress or the web in general, the same applies. The fact is, most of my friends around the world have some kind of home workplace where most (if not all) work is done.
Therefore, to find out more, I asked a number of well-known WordPress experts about what their home workplaces look like and what hardware they use.

GoDaddy Pro Summit 2017

Community | webcami.com | 11 days ago

Last month, I was invited to attend the GoDaddy Pro Summit in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was a meeting of GoDaddy leaders and web professionals in the GoDaddy Pro Program. It was a true exchange of information and ideas and was the best web conference format I have experienced. The presentations included Q&As and created a free flow of ideas from everyone. It was magic! GoDaddy is focusing on products to make being a web designer/developer an easier task. In doing so, they are actively listening to the Pros and engaging customers as they develop new products and solutions. I have been involved in testing these changes since November of 2016.
We started our arrival day with a shuttle to a call center in Mesa, Arizona. I have to say, it was the coolest office set up! We had a “meet and greet” social with the CEO and various VIPs from the company. GoDaddy Evangelist, Mendel Kurland, took us on a tour that included go carting and a giant slide. It was great to meet Mendel in person for the first time. I also spoke with Andy McIlwain, who interviewed me for the GoDaddy Garage last spring.
After our meet and greet, we headed back to the Westin to regroup and have dinner together.

The Promise of Gutenberg: Themes as More Design, Less Baggage

The Promise of Gutenberg: Themes as More Design, Less Baggage

Community | themeshaper.com | 8 days ago

It happened again. I sat with a potential WordPress themer, who wanted to know how to get started the right way with theme development. He’s a user experience professional by day, looking to up his coding skills.
He pointed to the WordPress editor, and said something like, “I understand HTML and CSS, but I’m not sure how to make something beyond putting it in there.”
We’ve all been there. Having that vision of what you want your site to look like, and not knowing how to get there. Gutenberg promises the vision you have takes shape in the editor, instead of some PHP file or a special plugin that isn’t truly native to WordPress. That’s powerful! It shifts much of the customization control from the themer to the person using the theme.
Today, if you’re trying to get into WordPress development, you might start by tweaking an existing theme. Then making a child theme. Then diving into a custom theme. My user-experience professional friend did just that. He’s already customized a theme and made a child theme. But the whole world of specialized WordPress theme knowledge can intimidate even professional web workers. Imagine how it feels

TranslatePress – Build Your Next Multilingual Site in Minutes — WPCouple

Community | wpcouple.com | 4 days ago

A multilingual site helps you rank content in local searches and generate more traffic. However, building a multilingual site adds a whole lot of complexity in the site structure. Talking about WordPress, it comes with 70+ language packs. But it allows you to select only one language for your website which becomes the default language for your dashboard. This is where the WordPress multilingual translation plugins come to the rescue.
Today, I am excited to review one of such plugin – TranslatePress – that helps you build a multilingual website quickly. This is by far the best translation plugin I have experienced. It provides a unique combination of machine and human translation to quickly translate your website.

The Evolution of WordPress UI (2003 to 2017)

Community | codeinwp.com | 17 days ago

It’s difficult not to be amazed at how significantly WordPress has evolved since its humble beginnings in 2003. What once started as a simple blogging platform is now the most popular website management system of them all, running nearly 30% of the entire web. What’s more, it is used not only by small business owners, bloggers and people in the web development ecosystem, but also by some of the biggest celebrities and brands out there. Though, I’m not entirely sure Beyonce is actually aware that she has WordPress running her site, but I digress! Back on topic:
We all know what WordPress is capable of today. But what about those early versions? Do you even know what WordPress 0.7 used to look like? Or, when WordPress actually started looking like the WordPress we know now?
