In this tutorial we show the level of integration of GeoDirectory with Avada (and other page builders) by building an Airbnb like page.
approximately 6 months ago we released V2 of GeoDirectory and we promised it would be a lot easier to customize your design with it. Being compatible with most page builders and themes, you could already do fantastic template designs with GeoDirectory V2, but now that we are fine-tuning it, you will be able to do even more awesome stuff with it.
We decided to start with Avada and the Fusion Builder.
With the current version of GeoDirectory, you had to :
create widget areas in Avada
add the GD widgets needed to complete the design
finally, use these widgets areas through the Fusion Builder
You could achieve almost anything with that and CSS later, but it wasn’t intuitive, nor as easy as customizing a design, with the default elements of Fusion Builder.
GeoDirectory Elements will be within the Fusion Builder
From the next version of GeoDirectory (beta available on GitHub), all GeoDirectory Widget / Shortcodes / Blocks, will also be available as Elements of the Fusion Builder.
This makes it a lot easier to design and we can now dig into the tutorial of how to design a page to look similar to Airbnb’s listings page or search results page.
Assuming you have Avada and GeoDirectory

Here’s a deep-dive into the hugely successful strategy behind WP FeedBack’s $100k+ plugin launch!
Have you ever heard of a WordPress plugin (or theme) that made over $100,000 in its first 30 days after launch? After spending hours Googling for successful plugins in the WordPress space that we could learn from, I couldn’t find any. As a big believer in transparency and knowledge sharing, I promised myself that if we met our goal of making $100k+ during our launch, I would share everything that we learned so other plugin and theme developers would be able to replicate the “recipe” we used to bootstrap our business.
Spoiler alert – we ended up making over $100,000 during the launch

While it is easy for all the worst-case scenarios to run on your head, the thing is, you need to have a comprehensive checklist before you launch.
Launching a website can be nerve-wracking. What if you fail to test out a crucial data form causing you to miss out on a lot of new leads? Or you didn’t set up your site redirects, leading your visitors to a website that cannot be found? While it’s easy for all the worst-case scenarios to run on your head, the thing is, you need to have a comprehensive checklist before you launch.
Also, if you’re using WordPress, having a coming soon plugin like UnderConstructionPage or Coming Soon & Maintenance Mode will help you manage everything until you’re ready for the public. In this post, we’ve compiled the ten essential things to double-check before launching your website:
1. Cross Browser and Device Check
If you have a development link for your site, it’s always best to check it thoroughly. Check it on all of the browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, etc.) and all types of mobile devices. When doing the testing, it’s crucial to click on every link and every page.
Do this over and over even if you’ve already launched. That will ensure that nothing went wrong during the switch.
2. Check Page Content Errors
One of the most common mistakes
If you are looking to create a great high-traffic website, you need good hosting. Here is why Linux is one of the best options for it.
A quality hosting service is one of the pillars of a successful site. Guaranteeing maximum uptime and high speeds will mean a much better experience for your visitors. Additionally, it will boost your SEO rating, making your site pop-up more frequently in high positions on the results pages of search engines. This means that aside from your regulars, random visitors will also more frequently stop by, raising your traffic flow in the process – which means a good hosting service that can handle it. Seems a lot like running in a circle, because it is. Essentially, any way you look at it, you need a good hosting service.
You’ll maybe be surprised to find out that although the most widespread OS used on computers is Windows, the most commonly used OS for hosting and operating sites is Linux. Precisely because not many of us are aware of this, we’ve decided to go through all the things that make Linux hosting successful. After you’re done, you’ll get a better sense of why it’s the industry favorite and why you should strongly consider it for your site.
To give you a better idea of how the various features work in practice, we’ll be using HostPapa
Here is how to choose the best technology stack for your mobile or web app.
The term tech stack refers to the combination of programming languages and tools used by developers to create mobile and web applications. This includes both front end and back end development. These stacks have several layers of applications built on top of each other to create programs that work for users. The good news is you have a lot of options when it comes to choosing the best tech stack for your project.
However, the world moves fast now. You need something that grows with your product. Standing still is no longer an option, and your customers expect you to grow as technology and user demands evolve. You need to keep several factors in mind to ensure you’re making the best choice to future-proof your product.
1. Do You Understand Your Project?
No two technology projects are created equal. When you choose your tech stack, you need to keep in mind just what type of project you’re trying to build. For small projects that need to be delivered quickly, a CMS like WordPress is probably the best option for a web application, for example.
A mid-range project will need a greater combination of programming languages than a CMS alone. Because there are more functions built
Either way, you will have to think about your subscription model since this is the lifeblood of every SaaS company.
A Do you have a SaaS business and are looking over your finances? Or are you simply interested in entering the industry?
Either way, you will have to think about your subscription model, since this is the lifeblood of every SaaS company.
Now, there are two main types of models to choose from – annual and monthly – each with its own advantages and drawbacks. Because of that, it’s worth going over them both to get a clear idea of how to proceed and what can benefit your business most. In the rest of this text, we will examine what these models do for your cash flow, how your clients can react to them, what they bring in terms of workload to you and much more. There is indeed quite a lot to discuss, so let’s get going, shall we?
OK, we’ll start things off with the annual subscription model for SaaS businesses.
What are its advantages? Well, first and foremost, the fact that they are annual means that your clients will be much closer to you and you will be able to handle their business for at least one year. That’s big because the churn-out rate is much lower: whoever pays for the whole year upfront is not very likely to stop using your
Launching a brand new website? Check out this comprehensive website launch checklist. Review before going live. Don't miss it.
What is the best day to launch a website? Let me take you through the website launch checklist and I will clarify each of the key directions. Launching your WordPress site must be an exciting step. You have already gone through the motions of choosing your website builder, getting your way about WordPress (which can be quite overwhelming), designing your site interface, and now, you are about to launch your gleaming new site! Exciting, right?
However, before you hit that publish button, you need to run a thorough check of your site. Failing to check your website before it goes live could lead to malfunctioning, which is not what you want while trying to build a reputation in the blogosphere.
This checklist will help you identify the most important fine details to check right before you launch your site to ensure everything works well.
1. Check your Contact Page
A contact page allows your readers to get in touch with you. You can include a working email address, phone number, or mailing address for the more old school site viewers. In addition to obtaining feedback about your site, the contact page will let visitors inform you of a glitch. It will also improve the credibility of your
If you are a beginner looking into WordPress website development and if you are looking at it from a business standpoint, then you are probably already well aware that developing something meaningful that will bring in profit will require money, time, and dedication
If you are a novice looking into WordPress website development and if you are looking at it from a business standpoint, then you are probably already well aware that developing something meaningful that will bring in profit will require money, time, and dedication. In the circumstances in today’s online market, creating and maintaining a successful online business is more complicated than ever. Web design is getting better every day, competition is tough, and only the best manage to stand out. For these reasons you will need all the help you can get. Most of you probably immediately thought of one of those agencies that are advertised on virtually any high-traffic page on the internet. Needless to say, most of these agencies will set you back quite much in terms of your budget, as their expenses as companies are much higher than the expenses of one individual. On the same note, if you already have a WordPress site, and you need just some tweaks done here and there, you can hire a single freelancer specialized in that one particular service that will meet your needs. It’s also worth mentioning that hiring a freelancer instead of an agency will give you more flexibility. Freelancer
The U.S. now has the world's second-highest Spanish-speaking population, behind Mexico. How can ecommerce merchants tap into this vibrant market?
Es oficial: In 2015, the U.S. became the world’s second-largest Spanish-speaking country, following only Mexico. There are more native Spanish-speakers in the U.S. than there are in Spain, according to a study released by the Instituto Cervantes in Spain. The number of native Spanish-speakers in the U.S. has only continued to grow since this figure became fact; and seeing as ecommerce in the U.S. currently represents a $500 billion market, with ecommerce constituting over 11% of total American retail sales in the last year, it’s safe to say that making ecommerce more accessible to America’s 50 million-plus native Spanish speakers is likely to be a sales-savvy endeavor.
The U.S. retail landscape isn’t known for being particularly multilingual-friendly. In fact, only 2,45% of U.S.-based ecommerce sites are available in more than one language.
Of these, about 17%—the highest percentage for a single language pair—are in English and Spanish, followed by 16% available in French and 8% available in German. The 17% of multilingual American e-merchants who have made the move to bilingual Spanish sites have already caught onto an important consumer base.
Jose Vega tells us about making the switch to start selling his plugins through Freemius.
Jose Vega is a young entrepreneur from El Salvador and the lead developer of several successful plugins. His featured plugins are WP Sheet Editor and WP Frontend Admin, which he’s both created in the last 2.5 years and started selling with Freemius. Jose, thank you for agreeing to do this interview. So, please tell us, where are you from and what’s your professional background?
First of all, thanks for inviting me to this interview.
I’m Jose, I’m 24 years old, and I was born in El Salvador. I created my first WordPress site when I was in high school and started learning programming because I wanted to customize the premium WP theme of my site.
I spent all my time after school studying programming, and I soon got my first client by accident – a small business located around the block from my school. My business basically started when I was 17 years old.
By the time I went to college I was already a beginner-level programmer, and I decided I wanted to make programming my profession.
Unfortunately, I felt that the curriculum of my college was very lacking, so I decided to drop out and complete my education with online resources.

If you want to succeed in growing your e-store, you might need to work with a marketing agency.
If you want to succeed in growing your online store, you might need to work with a marketing agency. You need an agency that can take you to the promised land: one that doesn’t just claim to know what they’re doing, but someone who has a proven track record of providing excellent results.
After all, with the right marketing agency, you’ll be able to generate truckloads of leads and sales, and you can even ensure (to some extent) the efficiency of your marketing spend.
And so the question becomes, how are you supposed to find the right marketing agency for your eCommerce store?
If you’re eager to find out the answer to that question, then this guide is for you. Read on.
1. Client testimonials.
When it comes to believability, there is a massive difference between companies tooting their own horn, compared to other people saying good things about a company.
The former doesn’t carry THAT much weight to it because anyone can say whatever they want about their brand.
The latter, on the other hand, isn’t easily manipulated since the testimonials are made by real people.
As you can probably imagine, if the eCommerce marketing agency is getting truckloads
Find out more about the types of WordPress Hosting, and how to pick the best one for your site!
Once you have decided to go and set up a WordPress website, you're going to need a hosting provider. What you need to know is that there are several different hosting options for you. Whilst this can be slightly overwhelming at first, don't fret: We'll give you all the information you need to help you decide which one is best for you. We'll look at the three most common hosting options for WordPress: Shared Hosting, VPS (Virtual Private Server), and Managed WordPress Hosting. You might already be wondering why there are so many hosting types, what's similar and different about each and which is best for you? So without further ado, let's get to it!
This is the most basic and cheapest of all the WordPress hosting offerings we outline today. It's good if you just want a site up on the internet and aren't getting lots of traffic. You simply want cheap hosting for a humble website and nothing more.
As the name implies shared hosting means you ‘share' a server with lots of other users and sites, it could be hundreds or thousands each. Like trying to get work down in a crowded room, it's doable, but it's not as effective as having the place to yourself. Shared hosting is great for a
Should you take care of your site's visuals yourself using available stock photos and plugins, or hire a professional? Here is what you should know.
When developing websites, you should not underestimate the potential of the animation, which makes the webpage of yours more attractive. To create such effects requires a lot of time and effort. There are many plugins for creating animations. Today we want to share with you a selection of the best WordPress plugins, with which you can apply animation effects to pictures posted on the site. It is also worth noting that the plugins presented in this article can animate the image and optimize it without significant loss of quality. Also, let’s analyze the animation stages used in WordPress.
The WordPress CMS engine is convenient and simple because it does not require global knowledge.
In addition, it initially has a lot of predefined themes that you can use to create a primary site. Of course, to develop a unique landing page or website, basic WordPress resources will not be enough. It means that you should take care of developing animation for the needs of your page.
Plugins you could use
For convenience, you can use ready-made plug-ins that can help you in creating animated elements for the site. And we will give examples of such plugins designed to help developers.
Pavel Ciorici from WPZOOM shares the challenges and opportunities of building a successful subscriptions-first theme shop membership business.
A few months ago WPZOOM marked its 10th birthday, and for those of you who haven’t heard about us before, I will make a quick introduction. Who am I and what is WPZOOM?
My name is Pavel Ciorici, and I’m the Founder and CEO of WPZOOM — a Premium WordPress Theme Shop.
If I look back 10 years ago, I never would have imagined that I would end up running a theme shop that sells more than 40 unique themes.
I started creating WordPress themes mostly as a hobby, and I was very curious to explore new possibilities with WordPress.
Here I am now, running a successful theme shop together with a small team that is as passionate about WordPress as me.
Quick history of our pricing models
In our first 2 years of creating themes, we were so busy releasing a new theme every month that we barely had time to listen to the needs of our customers.
What seemed like a simple thing was actually something a bit difficult for us at that time from a technical point of view. I’m talking about offering people an easy way to purchase all of our themes at once.
However, at a certain moment, we noticed that there were some customers who kept purchasing each new theme we were releasing. So, in
To get a better picture of how this works, we will give a simple example. Let’s say you have a page that has to load 2MB worth of data (occupying 20 files) every time it loads. Now that you’ve got all the elements listed it turns out that around half of that data is useless. Some have been added as bulk actions for the whole site, some are obsolete and some simply have better options available. This plugin lets you disable all those elements and then groups the remaining elements in fever files for faster processing.
Every new site that’s put up is clean and fast because the code is new. There isn’t much content, scripts or plugins to weight it down. Over time, all of these additions provide a double-edged sword. At the same time, they’re helping you simplify the backend work you’re doing, but stacking them one over the other will clutter everything and making your site difficult to navigate for you and slow to respond for your visitors. Even if you’re one of those devs that thrive in their own version of controlled chaos, having a slow site can and will burn you.
Most of the time you’ll need some kind of help to get it back running at optimal efficiency. We’ve found that one such tool is the Asset CleanUp plugin and it works wonders!
Make it fast
There are numerous reasons why you should want your site to be as fast as possible. Most of the reasons are obvious. Your visitors will be happier. Every one of us knows how frustrating it can be to fight your way through a slow site, constantly think which buttons to click and which not to so it won’t slow down your experience even further. Making a site fast will not only make their visit enjoyable but
One of the best ways to increase the efficiency of the app or software development process is by adopting DevOps.
In a DevOps environment, finding a way to make development projects more successful is something you should be passionate about. Failing to follow the trends in the world of development can put your company in a compromising position. The last thing you want to do is lose your competitive edge due to the use of outdated tools or methodologies. Studies show that businesses using DevOps are more operationally efficient and provide higher levels of customer service.
If you are already using DevOps in your place of business, you need to keep up with the changes going on with this methodology. As with any other tool used in this industry, there are constant DevOps innovations happening.
Read below to find out more about the DevOps trends that you need to know to stay competitive in 2019.
Embracing the Power and Convenience of Automation
One of the biggest DevOps trends you need to look out for in 2019 is increased amounts of automation. With a higher degree of automation, you can create an agile and leaner IT organization, as well as reduce the chance of employee overworking. During the development of a new piece of software, a number of repetitive and mundane tasks have to be performed.
Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) has dominated eCommerce news recently, and we've been researching how the new regulations may affect plugin and theme shops.
For many plugin and theme shops, Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) has been a hot topic in recent months. So what exactly is all the noise about and why is it relevant to WordPress product developers?! Let’s start with a bit of background.
What is Strong Customer Authentication (SCA)?
SCA rose out of the European Union’s (EU) goal to secure online payments, which is a pretty good goal for everyone, right? We all want to have secure online payments that protect the legitimacy of purchases in eCommerce.
In order to achieve the goal of securing online payments and minimizing fraud, the EU has released two “Payment Services Directives” – PSD1 and PSD2 – and no, these aren’t new photoshop formats. PSD2 initially gave businesses in EU countries until Sept 14, 2019 to implement secure solutions for online payments that meet SCA requirements.
These requirements were not well received by many groups, especially major credit card companies like Visa and other payment institutions in Europe, who jointly signed a statement explaining the major challenges in the transition to securing payments with 2 factor authentication (2FA – required for many
Taking your e-commerce store global is a great way to increase sales and ROI—if you do it right.
Maybe you started on Etsy or Ebay, on Depop or Amazon. Your “store”—which, on one of these marketplace platforms, isn’t entirely yours—took off. You decided to think about switching to a more personnalisable CMS, one where you would be able to deploy a marketing strategy 100% adapted to your brand. You’re now using a more professional e-commerce CMS, like BigCommerce, WordPress’s WooCommerce, or Shopify. There are a lot of others, in this category, too – and you’re in luck, no matter which one you’ve chosen for your shop, because Weglot is compatible with all of them.
There are a number of things you have to start taking into consideration when you open an independent online store. From generating traffic, to making sure your products are well-indexed on search engines, to deciding for yourself which payment-processing and CRM systems to use… If you’ve already taken the plunge and set up your own webstore, but are disappointed with the results so far, there are a few things you might be overlooking-or that you could simply be looking at with a sharper eye.
