Which WordPress Page Builder? An incredibly detailed comparison review

Absurdly detailed post from Fred at WPShout comparing the popular page builder solutions, with a savage critique of the products he views to be not up to scratch, but fair praise for the products which are good.

Which WordPress Page Builder? An incredibly detailed comparison review

Plugins | wpshout.com | 2 days ago

This article reviews three prominent WordPress page builder solutions: WPBakery Page Builder, Divi Builder, and Beaver Builder. This article reviews three very prominent (likely the three most prominent) WordPress page builder solution: WPBakery Page Builder (formerly Visual Composer), Divi Builder, and Beaver Builder.
As I’ve been writing for a while, WordPress page builder solutions are getting good, and are now the correct choice—more than widgetized homepages, column shortcodes, page template custom fields, and other half-measures—for getting layouts into your WordPress content.
However, when I wrote that “WordPress page builders are getting good,” I specifically meant one page builder: Beaver Builder, the first builder that I ever found to be a help and not a burden. I’d worked with both the Divi Builder and the WPBakery Page Builder (previously called Visual Composer) through numerous clients who’d installed them on their own sites, and I found that both builders reliably made doing good work almost impossible.
So, how is it now? Are WordPress’s other largest, best-selling page builders improving in quality too? How is Beaver Builder

4 Best WooCommerce Abandoned Cart Recovery Email Plugins And Tools

These 4 WooCommerce abandoned cart email plugins and tools can help you recover abandoned carts and boost your eCommerce store's bottom line.

4 Best WooCommerce Abandoned Cart Recovery Email Plugins And Tools

Plugins | wplift.com | 7 days ago

Here’s a sad truth about eCommerce: You spend so much effort (and money) trying to get customers to engage with your store and add your products to their carts. But the vast majority of those people are still going to leave without ever making a purchase.
It’s called cart abandonment. And it’s the scourge of any eCommerce store.
In fact, according to Baymard Institute’s aggregate cart abandonment rate statistics, the average cart abandonment rate is a whopping 69.23%.
That means less than a third of the people who add an item to their cart at your store are going to end up actually finishing their purchase.
While not all of those carts can be saved (called “recovered”), with the right tools you can bring at least some of those customers back.
To help with that, I’m going to share some plugins that aim to decrease your cart abandonment rate and boost your bottom line.
With these WooCommerce abandoned cart plugins, you’ll be able to send targeted emails to shoppers for a chance to bring them back to finish their purchase.

How Many WordPress Plugins is Too Many? The Answer Might Surprise You

The question that every wordpress admin asks himself from time to time: How many plugins can I have on my website? What is the limit? And what should I keep in mind when installing new plugins.

How Many WordPress Plugins is Too Many? The Answer Might Surprise You

Plugins | wplift.com | Feb. 16, 2017

If you’ve used WordPress for a while, I’m sure someone has told you that you “shouldn’t use too many plugins”. It’s obvious – using too many plugins will slow your WordPress site down, right? But is that actually true? I mean, people tell me I shouldn’t swim after eating, but I’ve done that my whole life and I’m still alive and kicking! So is the common knowledge that “too many plugins is bad” good for WordPress?
In this post, I’m going to attempt to answer that question. So, if your admin sidebar is bursting at the seams with links to plugin settings pages, join me on this adventure into the world of plugin collecting.
Is Having Lots of Plugins Always Bad?
Let’s start at the beginning. I’m not a developer, but in my reading, I’m fairly certain that I’m accurate in saying that there’s nothing inherently wrong with having lots of plugins.
I mean, I remember reading somewhere that Pippin Williamson has over 80 plugins running on some of his sites! Pippin knows a thing or two about plugins, so I’m going to trust him on this one.

ACF: Looking back at 2017 and ahead to 2018 with Elliot Condon

Plugins | advancedcustomfields.com | Dec. 28, 2017

2017 was an exciting year for Advanced Custom Fields, as we continued our quest of making both our free and PRO plugins better than ever. Some changes were quite noticeable, like the new fields and UI improvements introduced in ACF PRO throughout the year. Other changes were a bit more behind-the-scenes, but showed up in terms of improved performance and bug fixes. When it comes to ACF PRO, version 5.6 (released on July 25) brought major improvements to UI and UX. Whether it’s the reassurance of the confirmation tooltips included with the Repeater and Flexible Content fields, or the incredible power of adding custom fields to menus and menu items – ACF Pro has evolved by leaps and bounds.
The free version of ACF also saw some love , as it continues its march towards version 5. Early adopters can opt-in to the update right now.
And, as a special treat, I sat down with ACF founder Elliot Condon to get his take on both the year that was and the big developments on tap for 2018.
Looking back at 2017, what was your main focus in terms of ACF’s development?
Elliot Condon: Looking back, I’d like to think that 2017 was an important year for ACF. We hit a lot of milestones

Yoast SEO 6.0: 320 characters for your meta descriptions

Plugins | yoast.com | Dec. 20, 2017

The end of the year is coming up fast. Today is the day we’re releasing the last update of Yoast SEO in 2017. It’s been a wild ride this year and we’re already working on big plans for 2018. But first, Yoast SEO 6.0. And yes, we’ve heard you loud and clear; we’ve extended the meta description length to 320 characters. 320 character meta descriptions are here
These past few weeks there has been a lot of talk about Google’s decision to change the default meta description length to upto 320 characters. We’ve been testing how Google uses this, and we’ve been talking to Google representatives to make sure that we’re giving you the right options. With today’s release of Yoast SEO 6.0 (including the TYPO3 version, Magento 2 will follow soon), we’ve changed the meta description length from 156 to 320 characters. It doesn’t often happen that we need to change a feature in Yoast SEO following a change by Google.
Please read Joost’s post on impact of the new snippet length on SEO in general and Yoast SEO in particular.
Don’t panic
Now, having double the characters doesn’t mean you should go back to your site

Restricted Site Access for WordPress optimized for multisite

Plugins | 10up.com | Jun. 17, 2017

We’ve released a major update to Restricted Site Access, our popular WordPress plugin that intelligently limits website access. Designed to keep unwanted visitors out of staging, test, and private sites, the plugin is active on more than 20,000 websites and has a 5 star rating. Restricted Site Access 6.0 adds full support for WordPress network (multisite) installations. Network administrators can enforce restriction rules across the entire network, or set default restriction rules that are applied as new sites are added. If you have a network of private blogs or internal sites, or need time to configure new sites in your network before taking them live, this is the update you’ve been waiting for.
Administrators are proactively warned about potential compatibility issues when page caching is enabled. This will alleviate a common point of confusion, since some page caching solutions will deliver content before the plugin can analyze the visitor.
We’ve modernized the development workflow with Grunt to facilitate internal development and open source contributions.
We’ve tweaked and updated some code and user-facing language throughout.

NEW Customized Color Picker on Elementor: Stay Color Consistent

We've added a new feature, that makes it easy to remain consistent with your colors when designing a page with Elementor Page Builder. Choose and save the site colors, and then access them from every color picker.

NEW Customized Color Picker on Elementor: Stay Color Consistent

Plugins | elementor.com | Oct. 10, 2016

We are constantly thinking of new ways for you to optimize and speed up your design workflow on Elementor. Our template library, mobile editing and stretched section features were added exactly for this purpose. Now, we are tackling another pain: Staying consistent with your brand colors. Having to switch back and forth between windows to copy and paste your site color palette can be very disruptive for your workflow.
Now, you can have your site's chosen colors saved as presets, available on every color picker on Elementor, with the new Color Picker feature.
Your Colors Will Follow You Everywhere
The color picker feature is especially useful combined with our template library, or when using your own saved templates. Insert any template you want into the page, and quickly match it with your site's color palette by using your preset colors.
This set of colors will follow you everywhere on Elementor: On section and column backgrounds, buttons, headlines, image overlays, and so on.
To choose the colors for your page, click on the top left hamburger icon, and then click on Color Picker. You can either choose one of the 10 nice preset palettes, or customize your own colors.

Zao Adopts Asset Queue Manager

Plugins | zao.is | Apr. 18, 2017

You’ve already heard our good news about CMB2…but wait, there’s more! We recently adopted Asset Queue Manager, a WordPress plugin that allows experienced front-end performance engineers to take control over the scripts and styles enqueued on their site(s). About Asset Queue Manager
AQM is a well-liked and regarded plugin built by a developer from the UK named Nate Wright.
When plugins are bad citizens, they enqueue their assets everywhere on the front-end, which means their style sheets and JavaScript files are loaded everywhere, regardless of where they need to be. AQM allows you to manage whether or not those assets are actually enqueued. It’s a fantastic tool based on a great idea, and it has a really cool UI.
How we got involved
We started using AQM for the Cancer Tutor site. The homepage was taking five or six seconds to load (which as I’m sure you know, is just terrible). Justin looked at all the assets being loaded (WooCommerce, Google Maps plugin, etc.) and quickly realized that many of those weren’t needed on the front of the site. Zao used AQM to dequeue those assets and brought the homepage load time down to one and a half seconds.

WordPress Themes with True 1-click Demo Installs

Plugins | 103graphics.com | Mar. 15, 2017

The Idea: After having writing two articles about WordPress demo importing; Not All demo imports are Alike and Why Demo importing is still a challenge, I thought I would try to create a list of themes I’ve used and found to have true 1-click demo installs to help anyone looking for the right theme with this important features to find it with ease.
My List:
Avada:
A lot of theme authors nowadays have started to create their own importer plugins and many of them deliver it pre-installed with the theme that you get to run it right after you install the theme.
And a very good example of that is the Avada Theme Demo Importer which is a true 1-click demo importer.
And although I have a couple of comments on the Avada theme as a whole I find that its demo importer is a great one that does the job perfectly every time.
Listify:
Another cool demo import I found was the Listify theme demo importer, and this one was so simple to use and it imports everything with just one click.
Sahifa:
Sahifa theme from Tielabs was another example of one-click demo installers which gives you everything in just a single click and it won’t affect your current data, I can say it was one of the easiest

Doc’s WordPress News Drop is a weekly report on the most pressing WordPress news. When the news drops, I will pick it up and deliver it right to you. Clef, the popular two factor authentication plugin for WordPress, is shutting down. This week, Doc talks about why that’s a bummer and what plugins you can try instead.
Love WordPress news but hate reading? This is Doc Pop’s News Drop.
Clef Two Factor authentication was a plugin that allowed you to sign into your WordPress site by pointing your smartphone camera towards a symbol displayed on the computer screen and Clef will automatically sign you in without pressing a single button. I know some people who liked it so much that they fully disabled all username/password signups on their site to prevent brute force attacks.
Sounds like something you want to install on your site? Too bad, the ceo of Clef has just announced they have merged with another company and are sunsetting the Clef Two Factor app on June 6th. Don’t worry though, Clef was hugely popular, so I’m sure many other plugins will step up to clone it’s functionality.

How to Create a Multilingual WordPress Gallery with Weglot and Modula

Plugins | blog.weglot.com | Feb. 8, 2018

This article is a guest post from Cristian, developer and owner of Modula WordPress Photo Gallery Plugin and CPOThemes. If you’ve ever created a multilingual website, you know the pain of tracking down every single little string and making sure it’s properly translated.
One of the reasons so many people are turning to Weglot is because it makes this process, well, a lot less painful.
And that got us wondering – could we use Weglot to translate all the text from Modula, our very own WordPress image gallery plugin?
Modula gives users an option to add plenty of non-standard text in the form of image titles, hover captions, and filterable categories, so we were interested if Weglot was up to the job of handling all these little details.
Well – spoiler – it was. And in this post, we’re going to share exactly how you can create a multilingual WordPress image gallery using Weglot and Modula.
Let’s get started!
Step 1: Create Your Gallery With Modula
Before you can translate a gallery, you need to actually…have a gallery.
Thankfully, Modula makes that pretty easy.
To get started, you head to Modula → Add Gallery. Then you:

It enables you to create an infinite number of pixel-perfect menu designs, all customizable down to the very last pixel (It's the Elementor way, as you know).
There's a lot more I want to let you know about this exciting new feature, but I'm too eager to show you all the possibilities it entails, so here goes.
Once you choose the menu from the previously created WordPress menus, you can start customizing the layout of the menu.
The Background pointer has the most animations. They create a button-like style on active. The Gif below shows the top 5 animations, but 11 animations are available for this pointer: Fade, Grow, Shrink, Sweep left / right / up / down and Shutter in vertical / out vertical / in horizontal / out horizontal.

Decisive Victory in the Page Builder War

Decisive Victory in the Page Builder War

Plugins | webtng.com | 20 days ago

A year and a half ago, when Pippin Williams wrote the authoritative review of WordPress page builders, there were several strong contenders. If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll have seen that the field quickly narrowed to two: Beaver Builder and Elementor. These two giants in the page builder arena have been locked in a page builder war for the hearts and minds of WordPress site builders. I’ve been following developments closely and at this point I’m calling a decisive victory. Why It Matters
Things are moving quickly in the WordPress space. If you want to be effective in what you do, you have to stay current. If you are building a site for yourself, you want the best and easiest to use page builder. You need good tutorials and good addons. If you are a creating sites for others, you need to pick the best tools that will be kept up to date, be easy to use, be flexible so you can achieve the results you need, and be the most cost and time effective. If you are a developer, you want to target the market. You need to go where there the sales are and create tools that people need. If you are a blogger, screencast tutor, or podcaster, you need to focus on topics

Introducing the Atomic Blocks Plugin and Theme • Atomic Blocks

Plugins | atomicblocks.com | 15 days ago

Howdy traveler! My name is Mike McAlister and I run Array Themes, a WordPress theme shop known for crafting pixel-perfect WordPress themes for creative professionals, writers, businesses, and more. We’ve spent the last 10 years perfecting our craft, building products that adhere to strict standards and work out of the box in any install of WordPress. Although we’ve tried our best with Array to create WordPress products that “just work,” I’ve always wanted a little more from the WordPress editing experience. Historically, creating content in WordPress has consisted of adding your content to the TinyMCE editor box, using shortcodes, using metabox fields, and all kinds of other roundabout and seemingly disconnected ways of composing a post or page. With Array, we’ve done our best to work within these limitations and, in my opinion, we’ve done a good job of that.

WordPress is an open source platform that powers (according to :.com) over 50% of the entire Internet, and 37% of of the top 10,000 websites. That is a lot of WordPress, but don’t let that dismay you from using it. There is a reason so many businesses choose to use WordPress, and it may be the right solution for your small business. One of the best features about WordPress is the fact that there are many plugins, which are pieces of functionality that can be added to a website with as little as a few clicks.

Translate Dynamic Strings in WordPress

At times it can be challenging to translate dynamic strings in WordPress for two main reasons: they come from a plugin or theme that is not using gettext for their strings
they are user created and saved in plugin or theme options, in user meta or in a custom table the translation plugin doesn’t know about
Themes like Hestia make use of the WordPress Customizer interface to quickly build a beautiful front-page containing a slider, various columns for information, a list of WooCommerce products if it’s needed as well as a contact form. A lot of content from that front-page is not stored in the wp_posts or wp_postmeta. While some will voice concerns over why breaking the post/page convention is a bad idea, I personally like how smooth the experience of setting up that initial page was.
This flexibility is great when you want to do things your way, however, it’s also the main reason translating a WordPress site 100% can be a little harder to achieve, especially if you’re not technical.
Current Solutions
Each translation plugin has it’s own workflow when they translate dynamic strings.
gettext strings are translated per plugin / theme or directly from https://translate.wordpress.org/
