GDPR Compliant Form Builder for WordPress

Hundred of thousands of WordPress Forms are used every day, collecting information about their users that fall under the scope of GDPR. We've reviewed the most popular Form Builder in this blog post.

GDPR Compliant Form Builder for WordPress

Plugins | themekraft.com | 4 days ago

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is everywhere these days. For a lot of WordPress folks, that topic came at a bad timing. Getting your WordPress form GDPR compliant is just the very first step. Disclaimer: I’m not a lawyer and the following recommendations are based on my own experience. In this text, I can’t cover every topic and I can’t give you legal consulting. That said, we recommend to get professional support on all the GDPR topic.
Since the beginning of BuddyForms, our goal is it to build tools, where you can own your own data. With all the rise of social media platforms and data-driven business models, we need to ask us the question, if we are still in control of our data.
Sure we are kind of aware, that Facebook & co. are making money with our personal data and therefore they can provide their service for free. The following quote describes best, what now is happening:
“GDPR is long-term good for the internet and its helping fuel a much needed global conversation around data privacy.”
Quote from Siraj Raval
This article doesn’t only cover our new updates about data privacy as a form builder. No, we’ll also talk about the

Caldera has a bunch of new offerings for you to do better. Including a new add-on by me :) which adds an overlay to Youtube videos on your website.

Learn More When You Use WordPress For Your Email Marketing - Caldera Forms

Plugins | calderaforms.com | Apr. 25, 2017

If you’ve purchased anything form our site recently, you might have noticed we added a checkout field asking if the purchase is for your own site or a client site. Also, thank you I put that there because I was writing some user on-boarding emails and I kept writing sentences like “on your site or the sites you build for your customers.” This bothered me as it meant I was lacking the ability to talk to our customers in a sophisticated manner. I wanted to be able to talk to those building sites for themselves vs. those who make websites for a living differently. These are two major segments in our customers, and they have very different needs.
So I added a custom field on our checkout and sent the data to MailChimp and ConvertKit. Now my emails can be tailored to who they are reaching.
Know Your Users
I love email marketing. It’s been the best driver of revenue increases for Caldera Forms, both in terms of how we get sales and what we sell. We use MailChimp a lot, and it’s one of the most popular add-ons for Caldera Forms. We’ve been giving our MailChimp add-on a lot of love recently because of feature requests from customers and the needs of our own

WooCommerce version 3.2 is here. Check out the new features and update to take advantage of it.

What's new in WooCommerce 3.2

Plugins | woocommerce.com | Oct. 11, 2017

Since our last minor release back in June, we’ve been working on a multitude of improvements to improve the WooCommerce admin experience: Apply discounts to orders using coupons, without the chore of doing manual calculations.
See which versions of extensions are tested with new WooCommerce updates, before updating.
Improved management features for WooCommerce.com extensions.
A simpler, unified shortcode for listing multiple products on pages.
To ensure this update is indeed stable, we’ve been doing plenty of testing on our side; releasing beta versions, testing our own library of extensions and themes, working with customers to do managed updates, and running 3.2 on WooCommerce.com.
WooCommerce 3.2 is also a minor release, meaning it should be fully backwards compatible with 3.1 and 3.0. However, it’s still considered best practice, and recommended, to backup before updating.
We recommend viewing our documentation on how to update, making a backup, updating extensions, and finally updating WooCommerce via WP Admin.
Here are some more details on what’s new in 3.2!

WP Migrate DB Pro 1.7 & CLI Addon 1.3 Released

Today the Delicious Brains team has released WP Migrate DB Pro 1.7 and CLI addon 1.3. WP Migrate DB Pro now has an in-place find & replace feature, automatically handles migrations from HTTPS to HTTP (and the reverse), and the CLI addon now has a `setting` subcommand so you can automate your setup much easier.

WP Migrate DB Pro 1.7 & CLI Addon 1.3 Released

Plugins | deliciousbrains.com | Nov. 1, 2016

Just 5 months after our last major release, I’m happy to announce the release of WP Migrate DB Pro 1.7 and CLI addon 1.3. In the past, we’ve struggled with limiting the scope of each release and getting releases out more often (e.g. version 1.6 took 10 months and version 1.5 took 12 months!) but I believe we finally have a handle on it now. I’ll save the details of what we changed in our development processes to make that happen for another post. For now, let’s take a look at what’s new. Run a Find & Replace on the Current Site
You may recall that Matt Shaw joined us as a full-time product developer in February this year. What you probably don’t know is that we also acquired Matt’s plugin when we hired him: Better Search Replace Pro. I was impressed with the work Matt did on that plugin and its rapid rise in popularity. It just made sense to reach out to him and see if he was interested in selling it and maybe working with us as well.
Matt has been working on incorporating one of Better Search Replace Pro’s features into this latest release of WP Migrate DB Pro. It’s a feature that we’ve had planned for ages: in-place search

The Complete Guide to WordPress Popup Plugins

Should you use a popup plugin to capture emails? and if so, which one should you choose.

The Complete Guide to WordPress Popup Plugins

Plugins | themefurnace.org | Jul. 27, 2017

Most site visitors would tell you that they hate popups, but we still see them everywhere and the reason is quite simple. Popups work really well when it comes to retaining visitors and pulling in big crowds. Popups help increase site conversion rate, which is quite high in some cases (as high as 300%). However, popups should be used very selectively and carefully as they can also negatively impact the user experience and do more harm than good if not done properly. Another issue associated with popup plugins is their negative impact on site performance and page loading. Most sites use popups to convert random visitors into email subscribers, but they can also be used to highlight important content and promotional offers. Why Use Popup Plugins?
Poorly designed and executed popups can cause issues that not only harm SEO, but may also result in annoyed visitors and poor user experience. With thousands of free and paid options available, it often becomes a daunting task to pick the right one that helps convert random visitors into subscribers. Many plugins also offer unique features that allow you to differentiate your website from the rest and stand out from the crowd. Popups plugins

Elementor Pro is Finally Released!

Six months after releasing Elementor, the free page builder, we have finally launched the pro version. With live forms, global widgets, custom post type displays, and many more features, it truly is a game changing page builder.

Elementor Pro is Finally Released!

Plugins | elementor.com | Dec. 12, 2016

It's finally available. The most powerful, live page builder, built for the web-designer. Elementor Pro is here, and it's time to take it for a spin and see just what it has to offer. It's been a bit over six months since we launched the free Elementor page builder, and as they say, we've come a long way. We started with a lean, free page builder. Now, after months of hard work, we are proud to have reached a much more mature, premium page builder, jam packed with amazing features and capabilities.
With Elementor Pro, you have much more control over your entire website design and functionality, and this control is expected to grow significantly in the next months.
The last two weeks, since the start of the pre-order, have been truly inspiring for us. The Elementor community has demonstrated its loyalty and support, in a way we could not have expected.
For the two weeks of our pre-order period, orders surpassed our most optimistic expectations.
When we planned how we were going to do the pre-order sale, we decided to do it in a rather different way. No gimmicks, no buzzwords, no fireworks. Simply show various features of the product, honestly and directly. The fact that this strategy

WP Email Capture 3.3 Released

Plugins | wpemailcapture.com | Apr. 5, 2017

Today I’m delighted to announce the release of WP Email Capture 3.3! This version adds two new features, both in the free version, as well as the Premium Version. New Feature: HTML Emails!
You can now send emails as HTML emails. This will allow you to use links and simple formatting on your emails – even embed images from your site. This has been one of those features that has been requested many times, and now it is possible!
The premium version allows more complex HTML emails. You can introduce stylings and complex email templates in the premium version. This will help you increase signups as you can brand your emails however you wish, increasing trust.
New Feature: Headerless Emails
We recently discovered that if you use some email sending services such as Amazon SES, you could run into issues with multiple email headers being set. To aid delivery, WP Email Capture sets it’s own headers, but some email sending services set their own. This can cause confusion.
To fix this, you can now disable headers in emails by a simple tickbox within WP Email Capture. If emails are not being sent, try ticking this to try and restore their visibility.

Update on the WordPress REST API & iThemes Security Plugin

iThemes Security adds an option to restrict certain access to the REST API. They performed an audit & found NO security concerns, however, they do have some privacy concerns. This option restricts public access to some data on your WordPress install.

Update on the WordPress REST API & iThemes Security Plugin

Plugins | ithemes.com | Dec. 29, 2016

On Dec. 9, after the release of WordPress 4.7, we published a post with some initial precautionary concerns we had about the REST API, including a feature release to allow you to easily disable it in iThemes Security, after being alerted to potential issues. Disabling the REST API was a temporary solution we felt necessarily while we did a full investigation of it. It was not an ideal or a permanent solution, as current, yet little used WordPress features rely on it, but more and more WordPress features will utilize it in the future.
Before I go on about the details of our review and next steps, we also want to acknowledge the countless hours of discussion and consideration around security issues that had been done by the REST API team prior to release. There was never any doubt about that, or their commitment to security on our team.
I want to personally share my (and our) support for the REST API in WordPress, and, perhaps, more importantly, our trust in and appreciation of the amazing team of people who have worked tirelessly for the last several years to get this REST API project into WordPress core.
We’re also incredibly grateful to the thousands of people who have made and

How to create a landing page for optimum conversions with WordPress

Plugins | arrayinternet.com | Nov. 23, 2017

Learning how to create a landing page is something every internet marketer needs to do, especially if they want to receive optimum conversions. You can’t just slap a product on a page with a Buy button and expect people to purchase. Things can also get out of hand if you try to wing the process of creating a landing page. This is why you need to learn how to design and build your own landing pages as well as what to put on them. That’s what this post is about. We’re going to go over what a landing page is before diving into the specific elements yours should have. We’ll also go over the various tools you can use to design or add a landing in WordPress. You’ll have enough knowledge to create landing pages that convert once all is said and done, so let’s get started.
There are technically two definitions for the term “landing page”. The first describes the page a user “lands” on when they visit your site for the first time. The second describes a page designed to encourage the user to take a specific action on something you promote. This is the one we’ll be going over in this post.

Advanced AMP Ads: Major Changes + More AD Networks Support

Plugins | ampforwp.com | Dec. 30, 2016

In a nutshell, Instead of creating extensions for each AD network, we decided to focus on one extension. With Advanced AMP Ads, you can add any AD network in the world! and we’re still improving it. We planned to add more Ad networks support by creating individual extensions but then we realized that it will be challenging to manage 40 different AD extensions so we decided that we will build only one AD extension as it will allow us to be lean and move faster. We have pushed an update of the Advanced AMP ads plugin yesterday, it was the extension’s second update released this week. Although it may sound like a usual plugin update, we did some major changes behind the scenes.
Initially, we decided to release an extension after the popular demand. It had options to add advertisement with-in the content and some more ad features, but then people kept requesting for more AD network support. Some of the Advertisers have also got in touch with us and we’re also building their official AMP extension togeather. So that sparked the conversation of building more extensions within our team, so we then built DoubleClick extension which we released about two weeks back. We already

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).

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.

How to Create a Multilingual WordPress Gallery with Weglot and Modula

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.

Before you can translate a gallery, you need to actually…have a gallery.
Thankfully, Modula makes that pretty easy.

Translate Dynamic Strings in WordPress

The translation of dynamic strings in WordPress can be a challenge and TranslatePress' new mission is to make things easier. Discover below how to translate all the strings in your site, by using the same interface.

Translate Dynamic Strings in WordPress

Plugins | translatepress.com | Sep. 5, 2017

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.

Each translation plugin has it’s own workflow when they translate dynamic strings.

Traditionally, your website could only say one thing to all visitors. But your visitors aren’t all the same, and they aren’t all at the same stage in the buying process.
Sure you could try getting around this by keeping your site regularly updated, studying user behavior, adding more blog posts, creating multiple landing pages, and hoping the right people see the right thing at the right time.
Or you could take control over who sees what by using personalized marketing – personalizing what your website visitors see based on actual data, including browser history, on-site behavior, purchase history, user preference, and more.
If you run a WooCommerce store, this might mean presenting a past buyer with a $5-off coupon the next time they visit your site. If you run a job board, it could mean prompting a repeat visitor to go ahead and apply.

What to do with them? In our major Yoast SEO 7.0 update, there was a bug concerning attachment URL’s. We quickly resolved the bug, but some people have suffered anyhow (because they updated before our patch). This post serves both as a warning and an apology. We want to ask all of you to check whether your settings for the redirect of the attachment URL’s are correct. And, for those of you who suffered from a decrease in rankings because of incorrect settings, we offer a solution that Google has OKed as well.
Is redirect attachment URLs set to “Yes”?
You need to check this manually: unless you have a very specific reason to allow attachment URLs to exist (more on that below), the setting should be set to “Yes” . If the setting says “Yes”, you’re all set. You can find this setting in Search Appearance, in the tab Media.
Is your attachment URL set to “No”?
If your attachment URL is set to “no”, there are two different scenario’s which could apply to you. You could intentionally have set this setting to “no”, but the setting could also be turned to “no” without your intent.

One of the most time consuming and frustrating tasks in WordPress is making sure that everything is updated. Otherwise, you risk security breaches of your and your client’s websites. So far, the only way to make sure that everything is top-notch has been by regularly logging in and performing bulk updates or Safe Updates across your websites. That ends today.
From now on you can schedule all of your updates, across all of your websites on ManageWP. That goes for regular and Safe Updates, giving you also the option to rollback if something goes wrong.
Imagine logging into ManageWP and not seeing 137 pending updates, knowing that all of the updates were done when your website traffic was at its lowest.
