2018 Year in Review - Pippins Plugins

An excellent post from Pippin Williamson sharing the highlights and the challenges of 2018 while running Sandhills Development.

2018 Year in Review - Pippins Plugins

Community | pippinsplugins.com | 2 days ago

Since 2012, I have written a year-in-review post to detail and share highlights and challenges of the previous year. So as is tradition, here is my review of 2018. In all, 2018 was an incredibly successful year for me and my company, Sandhills Development. We had some great achievements that expanded the team, grew our revenue and profit, acquired a new product, sold two plugin products, branched out into a new market and industry, and matured as a company. We also, however, had some significant challenges that were perhaps some of the hardest yet. I’d like to share some details about each.
When Sandhills Development first started, I had no intention of having a large team and was very reluctant to ever grow the company to more than 5-8 people. Through the growth of our products, however, it has been necessary to increase the size of our team to fill ever-growing resource needs. At first I was leery to allow the team to expand beyond what I felt I could directly manage but overtime I welcomed the challenges that are involved with doing so.
Today we are at 19 full time employees and one part time / variable time contractor on the software side of the business, and two full time

WordPress vs. Medium: Comparing Apples & Oranges?

WordPress is one of the top and most popular CMS out there. On the other hand, Medium is a popular blogging platform that many people rely on easy blog management. So, which is one you should use and why?

WordPress vs. Medium: Comparing Apples & Oranges?

While the speedy Hare bragged about its lightning pace but snoozed mid-way, the slow Tortoise, moved steadily, without looking back, and won a mighty winning. We learn perseverance and ingenuity are important determining characteristics of a leader and a winner. Not speed or how much ahead one has gone. The Hare & Tortoise fable is not an unfamiliar story to any of us. It teaches a timeless lesson, and unsurprisingly, explains many real situations and characteristics that apply beyond people. It can also be applied to non-living things that also run, albeit figuratively, compete with each other, and even move our lives in productive ways.
Two such creations are Medium & WordPress. Two giant web blogging platforms that are different in several ways.
As you may've guessed rightly, this article will be going over the differences between Medium and WordPress, the two heavy hitters in today's content writing platform industry.

WPML Website Hacked

Wpml.org has been hacked by a former employee who have left the company. The evidence that we have points to an ex-employee who planted a backdoor before leaving the company.

WPML Website Hacked

Community | wptavern.com | 3 days ago

On Saturday, January 19, WPML customers started reporting having received an email from someone who seems to have hacked the plugin’s website and gained access to customer information. Got same mail and there is this text on #wpml website visible now. What happened guys? #security #hack #vulnerability #0day or something? #WordPress
— Gytis Repečka (@gytisrepecka) January 19, 2019
The hacker claims to be a disgruntled customer who had two websites hacked due to vulnerabilities in the WPML plugin:
WPML came with a bunch of ridiculous security holes which, despite my efforts to keep everything up to date, allowed the most important two of my websites to be hacked.
WPML exposed sensitive information to someone with very little coding skills but merely with access to the WPML code and some interest in seeing how easy is to break it.
I’m able to write this here because of the very same WPML flaws as this plugin is used on wpml.org too.
The hacker also claims to have exploited the same vulnerabilities in order to send the email to WPML’s customers and has published the same message to the plugin’s website. The text is still live at this time and product pages

Should You Incentivize User Feedback For Your WordPress Plugin/Theme?

An interesting article by Kobe Ben-Itamar discussing the DOs and DONTs of collecting user feedback for WordPress plugins and themes.

Should You Incentivize User Feedback For Your WordPress Plugin/Theme?

Community | freemius.com | 7 days ago

All WordPress plugin/theme sellers who sell their WordPress products through Freemius are added to a Freemius DEV Slack channel, where discussions about WordPress business best practices, as well as consultation sessions, take place on a daily basis. Just a few days ago, the creator of ‘WP Sheet Editor’ (and a few other great WordPress plugins), Jose Vega, came out seeking for some advice on whether or not he should ask for user feedback about his products. His plan was to incentivize them to provide their ideas of how their experience might be improved by offering free plugin licenses to users who come up with the best suggestions. We decided it was worth expanding on this topic, in the hopes of helping all WordPress plugin/theme owners understand the benefits and drawbacks, as well as how to best manage this kind of strategic move. Here’s Jose Vega’s original message from the Slack channel:
“Hi guys, I have an idea. I want to implement an ‘innovators program’ in my plugins. I will send an automated email to the customers, asking them to give me feedback (5 ideas) on how to improve the plugin (improve the UI, workflows, extension ideas, new

Please Turn Off Commenting Here

Community | 9 days ago

ManageWP.org staff, please turn off commenting on this site. It's just a giant spam-fest, and it's been that way for far too long. It's obviously never going to be moderated properly, so please just turn it off.

+1!

And while we're fixing things, FB login has been broken for awhile now.

I am an Admin here, but there is no way to turn off commenting sitewide, when I see a flag, I could delete. And I don't see any development support, so anything related to the development probably won't happen soon.

via M Asif Rahman Ⓦ

Ok, it's really not that hard. I mean, you can at least hide it via css. #comment-form-id { display: none; } Could probably still get some via scripts but it would probably cut down on a lot. And flags....we've flagged and flagged in the past, with nothing done. To paraphrase someone I despise..."sad".

Growing a WordPress Company – How We Reached the First 1,000 Customers

The WordPress ecosystem is huge and there are a lot of opportunities. But how do you start and go from your first customer to your first 1,000 customers?

Growing a WordPress Company – How We Reached the First 1,000 Customers

Community | kinsta.com | 14 days ago

A year after my first post on bootstrapping a startup, I’m writing another one about the challenges and lessons we’ve learned while growing our SaaS company. As well as how to go from your first customer to your first 1,000 customers. The reason I decided to write a second part is not just because I have a lot more to say but the feedback our team received was incredible! You guys really loved that post, you left a bunch of comments, and shared your own stories. Many of them were the same everyday challenges we are facing and it encouraged me to start writing again so you can see what has worked for us.
In case you missed the first part you can take a look here: 16 lessons learned bootstrapping Kinsta from $0 to 7-figures revenue.
Deep down I was hoping that the post would be popular and generate some buzz, but the results surpassed my expectations!
The same moment it was submitted to Hacker News it started getting clicks, upvotes, and comments. Two hours later it was #1 and the post had 300-400 concurrent visitors! Since we provide managed WordPress hosting and our tech guys know their job, we didn’t have any technical difficulties keeping the site up and running.

New 1-click 'Safe Mode' Feature & Responsive Background Controls

Community | elementor.com | 9 days ago

Elementor v2.4 introduces features that focus on improving your user experience: mobile control over background images, custom background size and position, safe mode for troubleshooting and more. We’ve always been proud of our flexible mobile design capabilities. But getting the background image position just right was still a challenge for Elementor users.
If you’ve ever built a website, you have probably faced this common issue:
On mobile, you want to focus on the dog’s face, but end up only showing its tail.
With the recent release of Core v2.4, we are introducing a full set of capabilities to help you customize background images for any device. Meet Responsive Background Image controls.
The new version of Elementor lets users have complete control over the background image controls on desktop, tablet and mobile devices. This control includes device-specific settings over background image controls (image, position, attachment, repeat and size).
Now, you can finally set different positions per device. Set ‘center-center’ for desktop, and ‘center-top’ for mobile, so all devices show a similar area of the image. You can also designate a different

It doesn’t matter what type of WordPress site you have, whether it’s an ecommerce store or affiliate marketing blog, it’s vital that you never stop A/B testing! Data-driven decisions are what can help propel your website or business forward and get you ahead of the competition. But let’s be honest, A/B testing isn’t always easy.

It doesn’t matter what type of site you have, this will work across the board. And best of all, it’s free.
What is A/B Testing?
A/B testing, sometimes also referred to as split testing, is a way to compare elements on a page (or any type of data) against each other to determine which performs better in terms of page views, time on page, conversions, bounce rate, etc. A few examples include:
Testing different headlines.
Trying out new landing page content or page layouts.
Experimenting with different color CTA buttons.
Showing something completely different such as a CTA in a widget vs a contact lead form. You can track in Google Analytics sales down

Headless WordPress with React and NextJS (Part 2)

Learn the benefits of Headless WordPress with React and NextJS from an Engineer at WordPress development agency WebDevStudios in this article. This is Part 2 in a series.

Headless WordPress with React and NextJS (Part 2)

Community | webdevstudios.com | 13 days ago

Editor’s Note: The following is Part 2 in a two-part series titled, “Headless WordPress with React and NextJS.” In Part 1 of this series, we set up a simple app to display our posts using React and Next.js alongside our WordPress install. We left it lacking some extra functionality that would take us from a simple test to a real browser-accepted website. So, let’s get to work on that and really round this thing out.
First up are single posts. We’re going to continue to work in our posts.js and get some links and such working first.
Our main update, like in Navigation.js, will be to import our Link component and wrap each of our post titles.
import Link from 'next/link'
and then
<li key={ post.id }>
<Link href={ `/posts/${ post.slug }` }>
<a href={ `/posts/${ post.slug }` }>
{ post.title.rendered }
</a>
</Link>
</li>
From here we have links, but they won’t go anywhere.
In fact, if you tried, you’d get the default 404 error from express.

This is where things get a little complicated. Out of the box, Next.js handles direct routing, but dynamic routing is a little

How to Translate Your WordPress Website in 2019

Community | blog-install.com | 2 days ago

The global economy has opened the potential market in an unforeseeable way, creating opportunities for expanding small, local businesses onto foreign markets. This sounds fantastic, and appears simple – expanding the customer list via the internet does not appear to be a big investment for an already established online business. However, the most basic and crucial issue here lies in the key aspect – the language of the website. It is true that English is the third most spoken language on Earth, however, research has shown that 73% of online customers prefer websites translated to their native language.
Here the solution for reaching more foreign customers is simple – translate the website to target customers’ language. While this is often simple, in many countries, people speak several languages. For example, in the Philippines, people speak Spanish and Tagalog, the Swiss commonly use German and French languages, and China has two official written languages.
There is always an option to offer the customers to choose a language when they first enter the website and use cookies to memorize their choice. This is a nice way to establish trust in the website as it

Advanced Custom Fields and Gutenberg

Community | webdevstudios.com | Dec. 11, 2018

WordPress 5.0 ships with a new editor called Gutenberg. Here at WebDevStudios, we’re excited to build custom editorial solutions using Gutenberg and to see how the experience evolves from the classic editor. With that said, we’re huge fans of Advanced Custom Fields (ACF). It provides a robust set of field types that enables us to create flexible and friendly content management solutions for our clients. The time we save from writing, testing, and maintaining code with ACF makes it worth paying for an ACF PRO license. Our wd_s starter theme includes commonly-used content blocks built on ACF.
ACF 5.8 has added support for Gutenberg. You can add ACF fields to a Gutenberg block without any JavaScript code. In this article, you will learn how to build a custom Gutenberg block for hero area using ACF without writing a single line of JavaScript code.
Adventurous, right?

To build custom blocks using Gutenberg, you must be familiar with writing Modern JavaScript using the latest syntax (ES6, ES7, ES8, JSX), as well as creating components using React. To see this in action, here are some code examples to demonstrate a classic “Hello World” example for

How to Fix File and Folder Permissions Error in WordPress

Community | wpsecurityninja.com | 20 days ago

Security experts from Reviewedbypro.com have shared with us their knowledge how to make your WordPress website more secure by fixing file and folder permissions. If you run a WordPress website, you could probably agree that it is so frustrating to receive an error while trying to update your site. However, just like any other Content Management System, WordPress also has a few annoying quirks. File and Folder Permissions Error can prevent users from interacting with the managed website, as it affects creating files and updating files’ settings.
But do not panic. This issue can be quickly fixed if the correct steps are taken. Lets’ take a closer look at how permissions work in WordPress.
File and Folder Permissions help to manage the site security
WordPress, just like any other content management system, has its own set of files and folders stored on the web hosting. Every file and folder also comes with a set of permissions that govern who can interact with them. In other words, to create folders and modify files, users have to have the required privileges.
There are three permissions admin users can give to non-admin users – read, write and execute.

Interview with Tom McFarlin of Pressware

Community | kinsta.com | 28 days ago

Tom Mcfarlin runs Pressware, which focuses on delivering high-quality, custom WordPress solutions for small businesses and individuals. He also blogs about software development and WordPress. You can find Tom on 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?
This is a bit of a long answer, actually.
I first found an interest in computing when I was about 10 years old. We’d had an Apple IIe when I was really young, but I was too young to really get into it. But when we got our first PC (it was a 386 with 4MB of RAM) and had Wolfenstein and Doom on it. The moment I played those two games, I was hooked.
Like many kids my age, I was interested in video games so I played a variety of games like Star Wars: Dark Forces, Doom, Doom II, Wolfenstein, and King’s Quest (the sixth installment is the best, inarguably so :).
As far as the Internet was concerned, my first experience with “getting online” was via Prodigy with a 14.4 baud modem. But there’s more to this in a moment.
The more I used the machine, though, the more I became interested in what

Is PHP Dead? No! At Least Not According to PHP Usage Statistics

Community | kinsta.com | Nov. 23, 2018

You’ve probably heard about how the new WordPress Gutenberg editor brings block-based editing to WordPress. And while blocks have been much of the focus, there’s also another change going on behind the scenes that casual users might not notice – the Gutenberg editor is built on React, not PHP. That change, along with other shifts in web development, might have you wondering, “is PHP dead?”.
So…is it? Should we call the funeral home and start the preparations? Well, first off, it’s important to point out that there’s a big difference between wanting PHP to be dead and PHP actually being dead.
People have been calling for the death of PHP for years now (you can find “Is PHP Dead?” posts as far back as 2011). And yet, PHP still persists…
In this post, we’ll dig into the data and show how PHP isn’t close to being dead (even if you really wish it were).
Is PHP Dead? Only if You Ignore the PHP Usage Statistics
Ok, PHP might not be the best or the most modern programming language. But that doesn’t mean it’s dead, and it’s pretty tough to argue with the PHP statistics here…

After several years of working on WordPress and accessibility and being part of the accessibility team, I have taken the very difficult decision to leave the WordPress accessibility team. I owe it to the team to explain why I have made this decision and how I hope things can improve for the future.
The last year, especially the last few weeks have been too politically complicated for me. It’s better that someone else takes the lead now.
In this post I’ll try to give an analysis of what the WordPress Accessibility Team (wpa11y team) did during the development of Gutenberg and what the problems are with working on its accessibility.
Gutenberg
When the development of Gutenberg started, the wpa11y team followed its progress and tested what was there. And we discovered there is much to improve. So Andrea Fercia started to open tickets and tried to find solutions. And that was a huge task.
Codebase
We had four big problems:

The first episode of our new blog series on WordPress Communities was focused on the WordPress Toronto Community. Today, we are happy to interview Evangelia Pappa from the WordPress Greece Community! You can find Evangelia on Twitter and news about WordPress Greece community on wpgreece.org
Who is the WordPress Greek Community?
WordPress Greek Community first started back in 2007-2010, with the first full Greek translation of WordPress and then two unofficial WordCamps that took place in Thessaloniki in 2010 and 2011. In its present form, the Community has being active since 2012. The number of members in the Facebook group is at the moment around 6.900 and it just keeps rising every day. The key members of the community are the local meetups organizers who are also participating as members of the organizing teams of WordCamp Athens and WordCamp Thessaloniki.
In the Athens WordPress meetup one should look for Takis Bouyouris, Kostas Fryganiotis, Kostas Vrouvas, Iakovos Frountas, Kostas Xenos and Yannis Kastorinis. In the Thessaloniki WordPress meetup Panos Koukoulis, Konstantinos Efstathiou, Constantinos Spiliakos, Giorgos Ilidis, and Stefanos Togoulidis will assist you. And the Larissa
