6 Helpful Facebook Groups for WordPress Developers

Community | speckyboy.com | 2 days ago

Part of what makes working with WordPress so much fun is that you get much more than a free, open source CMS. You also become part of a tremendously welcoming and helpful community. Information regarding just about any aspect of the software you want to learn is most likely available for free. And when you have questions or run into trouble, there’s a good chance that someone out there is willing to help. It’s no surprise, then, that Facebook is home to some outstanding groups dedicated to WordPress in one way or another. Some are quite general in nature, while others cater to a specific niche. Here are six groups you’ll want to check out, depending on how you use WordPress.
The Advanced WordPress group is one of the most interesting out there. It boasts over 30,000 members, and the list includes some of the most influential names in the world of WordPress. Like the other groups on this list, membership is closed – meaning a moderator has to approve your request to join. Posts are also subject to moderator approval, which helps to keep the content relevant. And, as its name suggests, you’ll find some very advanced discussions regarding code, design and

The Complete Guide to WordPress User Roles and Permissions

Guide covering the different WordPress user roles and their capabilities, how to manage users in the WordPress admin, the best plugins for customizing roles, and best practices when dealing with user permissions.

The Complete Guide to WordPress User Roles and Permissions

Community | pagely.com | 7 hours ago

If you run a large website, a membership site, or simply need to give other people access so they can manage, edit, or contribute to your site, WordPress user roles and permissions let you control what users can and can’t do. WordPress provides six default user roles, each with its own set of permissions and capabilities. And there’s good reason for this – you don’t want just anyone to have open access to your site.
While some users, such as site owners, will have overarching access to do practically anything they want, other users only need limited access to options and settings. After all, in the name of keeping your site secure, you wouldn’t give a casual blog contributor access to your plugins, or allow users who’ve register on your site to leave comments additional access to the post editor.
In this post, I’ll explain the different WordPress user roles and their capabilities. Then I’ll walk you through how to manage users in the WordPress admin, the best plugins for customizing roles, along with best practices when dealing with user permissions.

WP Site Care joins forces with Southern Web

Community | wpsitecare.com | 4 days ago

Today I’m thrilled to announce that WP Site Care is now a part of Southern Web. When I started WP Site Care in 2012, I set out to build a company that could help brands and individuals write their success stories online. Support & maintenance have always been an important piece to that puzzle (it’s hard to make progress with a broken website, right?), but it’s never felt like quite enough.
Despite our best efforts to add complementary services in the past, we’ve never been able to get it quite right.
So when the opportunity arose to join a team that could fill in the gaps, and where we could add value to their customers as well, it felt like kismet. Today we’re officially joining forces with Southern Web.
Who are Southern Web?
Southern Web is an award-winning digital agency offering WordPress design & development, managed web hosting, and data-driven digital marketing services.
The South is because they’re based in Georgia. Clever, right?
I’ve known the Southern Web founder, Drew Barton, for nearly five years now, and their company has always had a sterling reputation. That familiarity made this a move that I could make with confidence;

Redirect Attachment Pages for SEO? Read This First!

Are you throwing away awesome Schema SEO markup about your media?

Redirect Attachment Pages for SEO? Read This First!

Community | surniaulula.com | 9 days ago

Last month Yoast added a feature to their Yoast SEO (aka WordPress SEO) plugin to allow redirecting attachment pages to the media itself (image, video, PDF, etc). For example, an attachment page with an image would be redirected to the full size image. The reason given by Yoast is that attachment pages are simply an HTML wrapper around an image, and provide little to no value for SEO. This may be true IF the attachment page does not include any Schema markup — either as JSON-LD or microdata — to provide Google (Bing and Pinterest too) with information about the media, AND you’ve not entered a title, caption, alternative text, and description for your media in the WordPress Media library (if you haven’t, you really should).
And if you’re using the WPSSO Core plugin with its WPSSO Schema JSON-LD Markup add-on, for example, you probably would NOT want to redirect attachment pages to the media file — you’ll just be throwing away all that awesome SEO markup about the media. ;-)
What about sharing attachment page URLs vs image URLs?
Whether your attachment page has Schema markup or not, one thing is certain — if you want to share an image on

Inherit Featured and Custom Meta Images from Parents

Have you defined a featured image for a parent and wished its children used the same featured image automatically?

Inherit Featured and Custom Meta Images from Parents

Community | surniaulula.com | 9 days ago

Does your website use parent pages and/or categories? Unless you have a very simple site, you’ve probably organized your WordPress pages and categories as parents with child pages / categories. And have you defined a featured image for a parent page and wished its children used the same featured image automatically?
How about social and search optimization images? If you’re using the WPSSO Core plugin — and have selected a custom image for Facebook, Google, Twitter, and/or Pinterest — would you like the children of that page and/or category to inherit those custom images automatically?
A new WPSSO Inherit Parent Meta add-on for WPSSO Core allows just this — select a featured and/or custom image for a parent, grand-parent, etc. (post, page, custom post type, category, tag, or custom taxonomy), and its children will inherit those image(s) by default.
And you can still select different featured and/or custom image(s) for the children — they simply inherit the parent images by default. ;-)

I should spam the crap out of ManageWP

Community | 16 days ago

I should spam the crap out of ManageWP.org .

I mean, apparently, I'm behind the times, right?

Looks like everyone else is already spamming ManageWP, and I've been left in the dust. I should get all my backlinks from here!

Here's a perfect example. Look at the comments on https://managewp.org/articles/16787/getting-ready-for-gutenberg-helping-developers-prepare-for-it . WTF?

I guess this is what happens when you sell your soul to the devil. (Or Godaddy?)

Obviously, no one gives a crap any longer. Probably time to abandon ship.

Not sure what's taking so long to treat the spam situation, but I think I read somewhere that they were working on it..
With that said - guys, seriously, the amount of spam comments on here is getting obscene.

Interview with Kevin Muldoon (Blogger/WordPress user since 2006)

I love this quote from fellow blogger Kevin Muldoon. "My greatest challenge has been adapting and realizing that my environment was changing around me." The WordPress space is constantly changing and we have to stay on our feet!

Interview with Kevin Muldoon (Blogger/WordPress user since 2006)

Community | kinsta.com | 23 days ago

You can find Kevin on Twitter or LinkedIn. 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?
I first started building HTML websites in Notepad in 2000. I then started using PHP for headers and footers and then started using content management systems to publish content online.
I tested hundreds of different scripts in the early 2000s and used popular CMS solutions such as PostNuke. At the time HotScripts.com was the go-to website for many aspiring website owners like myself.
I recall seeing WordPress getting listed there early on. I used it on a few websites, but I still used other CMS solutions at the time. It’s important to remember that whilst WordPress had some good features, in the beginning, it was far from the polished product it is today. I went back to Serendipity (S9Y) for creating blogs, but around 2005/2006 I started turning to WordPress more because of all the themes and plugins that were coming out for it.
Previously, I had switched around between WordPress and a few other solutions, but 2006 was the year where I went more and more for WordPress and it became

What’s New in Gutenberg? (6th July)

Community | make.wordpress.org | 14 days ago

This release generally completes our MVP feature set for the editor by adding inline images, block style variations, and a new columns approach. Switching focus to bugs, enhancements, compatibility, and API stability from now on. Worth noting that there’s people working on some more individual blocks (a few widgets and playlist) to be included when ready. The most significant addition is block style variations. This will allow registration of alternate styles (based on class names) for any block, with automated real thumbnails and live previews built in to the block transformation tool. We have added them to the Quote, Button, and Separator blocks for illustration. The public API will be exposed in a future release.
3.2
Add block styles variations to the Block API.
Add support for Inline Images and Inline Blocks API.
Convert Columns to a set of parent and child blocks, including a wrapper element and more reliable front-end presentation.
Allow registering new block categories.
Add support for locking Inner Block areas.
Add File Block for uploading and listing documents, with drag and drop support.
All Updates
Introduce Modal component to expand the extensibility suite of UI components.

The security of your website and its functionality is very important to all of us at Optimized360. We have years of experience working with WordPress plugins and have seen how an unapproved plugin can negatively affect a website, damage your local computers and of your patients and cause thousands of dollars of damages to a website and its users. It may not seem obvious, but, a plugin can be a gateway for a hacker to attack any computer that visits your website. We take the safety of your website and your visitors very seriously. Many requested plugins simply do not pass the minimum security and compatibility requirements needed to be installed on the server and on your website. We understand that you may need the functionality of a specific plugin and that is why we research the marketplace for you and can often recommend and install alternatives that you can consider.
The following is list of what we check to determine if a plugin qualifies to be installed on your server:

And for obvious reasons. John has a point.

via Binod Kumar Anand

@Pol I have to respectfully disagree. The moderation team is just one person, and I have been busy with WCEU in our own back yard. Otherwise I clean up comments once a week, or whenever I have some extra time.

On a related note, there has been too much spam going on lately, but not sure if nofollow would be enough. My knee-jerk reaction would be to remove links altogether. What do you all think?

via Nemanja Aleksic

Hi Nemanja,

I think nofollow wouldn't be enough, removing links altogether might be a better solution, but I have the feeling that even without links spam won't disappear. Isn't there a way to manually review and approve or reject new accounts? I know this could be definitely a time-consuming task.
Btw. I hope you had a great time on WCEU!

In this post we’ll focus on the Organization markup, which Yoast SEO, WPSSO Core, and most SEO plugins add to a site’s homepage. Google uses the Organization markup to enrich its Knowledge Graph information for the website’s Organization (aka Business, Corporation, etc.).

What you’re about to read are the results of our 2018 WordPress hosting survey – aka. “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of WordPress Hosting.” Yep, we have good, we have bad, and we indeed do have ugly. This is our third annual WordPress hosting survey, and the more we do these, the more interesting things get and the more insights we discover!
But hold off on that for a minute, let’s start somewhere else…

We got 830 valid responses in total, which makes this one of the biggest WordPress hosting surveys to date! It’s because of you that this was possible!
