Elementor Introduces Cards: A Layout for Material Design Blogs

Elementor has launched Cards skin, a card-like layout for designing blogs, portfolios and other post type archives.

Elementor Introduces Cards: A Layout for Material Design Blogs

Plugins | elementor.com | 2 days ago

Today, we’re excited to share a brand new way to display your posts. We call it Cards, and it allows you to create beautiful card-like layouts. Your blog is where you display most of your content, so it has to look its best. Today, we are introducing the Cards skin, a new layer of design that sits on top of the Posts widget, allowing you to upgrade your blog design with the latest material design trend.
A cards layout is a dynamic grid that displays content in card-like boxes. It helps organize large amounts of data in an ordered, minimalist and stylish way.
This foundation of this style is derived from Google's material design. Pinterest was the first to incorporate it as an innovative way to lay out content on the web. Since then, cards have become extremely popular and were mentioned as one of the leading design trends of 2017. It is currently used by top brands like Dribbble, Google, and UXPin.
See how much better a blog looks with the Cards skin:

The importance of the new Cards feature lays not only with providing you with another design layout. It represents an evolution in Elementor, the evolution into skins.

Freemius MailChimp Integration & Seamless Checkout

Cool integration of Freemius with Mailchimp... I was really looking forward to it... and the auto-update thing looks neat, too!

Freemius MailChimp Integration & Seamless Checkout

Plugins | freemius.com | 8 days ago

Release Notes is our monthly update that highlights the recent product improvements we’ve made, so you can easily stay up to date on what’s new. Here’s what we launched in May. This product cycle was focused on three main objectives:
Integration with 3rd party email marketing services
Improving the in-dashboard upgrade process for freemium products
User-friendly usage tracking terms
MailChimp Integration
Since our early days, we released a webhooks mechanism, because we know it’s impossible to develop every feature in-house and address every use-case. A solid webhooks mechanism makes Freemius more powerful and extensible and allows developers to integrate the platform with practically any 3rd party service.
Over the past year, we learned that the #1 (by far) usage of the webhooks mechanism was for integrating Freemius with MailChimp, powering up the email marketing efforts with our high converting opt-in. At first, we created an example of a vanilla PHP Webhook integration. Though some WordPress developers in our community had a lack of sysadmin knowledge for taking and deploying it to their WordPress powered site. A collaboration between two of our developers

Hookr Plugin Rebrands as WP Inspect, Project to Shift to a Module-Based Architecture

I thought the name "Hookr" was clever, and not really that rude. But I think the plugin will benefit from being in the repo, and I'm curious to compare it to other hook-revealing plugins.

Hookr Plugin Rebrands as WP Inspect, Project to Shift to a Module-Based Architecture

Plugins | wptavern.com | 9 days ago

A year and a half after the initial release of the controversially-named Hookr plugin, its creator, Christopher Sanford, has rebranded the plugin as WP Inspect. The plugin provides a WordPress hook/API reference for developers and displays the actions and filters that fired as the page loaded. At launch Sanford was fairly committed to the Hookr brand, despite criticism, due to an oversaturated market for WordPress developer plugins. After 3,500 downloads, Sanford decided to rebrand and put the plugin in the official directory. “Based on the usage and positive feedback, I wanted to target a broader audience, which led to both the re-brand and submission to the WordPress Plugin repository,” Sanford said. “Leveraging the plugin repo, it will be much easier to coordinate/communicate updates, which is somewhat lacking today.”
The 1.0.0 release of WP Inspect includes mostly bug fixes and technical debt cleanup with two major enhancements:
WP Inspect will only be active under specific roles, with Administrators being enabled by default. (Previously it was active for everyone.)
Action detail now requires no additional clicks. (Before, if users wanted to inspect an action,

Why investing in premium plugins is worth it

Plugins | wp-rocket.me | 15 days ago

This blog post is written by Ashley, head of NINE2, a Norwich web design agency that has been using WP Rocket. When you’re as dedicated to WordPress as much as we are, plugins become part of your everyday life, but, how do you make the decision on which ones to try and which ones to buy?
Me and my team here use WordPress ALL the time. Literally every single day.
Like the millions of other users out there we like how easy it is to work with, how flexible it is and how beautiful simple it’s become for our customers to take on website editing themselves (with a little help here and there).
It’s become a fantastic tool for users, developers and agencies like us across the internet. It is constantly growing thanks to incredible themes and plugins like WP Rocket.
As time goes on, we have found that it’s becoming harder and harder to ‘see the wood for the trees’. There are a lot WordPress plugins available.
There are currently over 49,000 WordPress plugins residing in the WordPress Plugin Directory!
A crazy amount of choice! – How do you choose between them?

DocuPress: documentation simplified.

This is a new WordPress plugin I just released. It's open source and under active development. Working to make it the top documentation plugin for WordPress. Always open for feedback!

DocuPress: documentation simplified.

Plugins | robertdevore.com | 14 days ago

DocuPress is a documentation plugin for WordPress that lets you, you guessed it, add documentation directly from your website’s WordPress dashboard. This is the 6th free plugin I’ve released in the WordPress plugin repository and one that I definitely know I’m going to be using myself … a lot.
Why build a documentation plugin?
This has become a bit of a run-on story with me, but DocuPress was built for a self-serving reason; WP Dispensary needed better documentation than it had, and nothing I found fit my needs, so I built it.
In reality, there’s a few documentation plugins out there already and I’m sure I could have found something that worked well enough, but where’s the fun in that?
I had the original idea for DocuPress in December of 2015! and didn’t do anything else with it until about 4 months ago, when I created the initial core files for the plugin (which was just a boilerplate build from wppb.me).
A couple of weeks ago, I knew I had to do something about the WPD documentation, so I dove in and started writing code.
Again, I didn’t do much, but it did make it to my list of things to do, which was a step in the right direction.

Image Widget Plus - New WordPress Plugin from Modern Tribe

With WordPress 4.8 offering a new simple image widget, these guys just launched an updated version to their popular Image Widget plugin. It has some nice new features, but it is a premium offering.

Image Widget Plus - New WordPress Plugin from Modern Tribe

Images bring websites to life, so it’s no surprise one of the common questions asked by new WordPress users is: How do I add an image to my sidebar? You can manually add images using HTML code, but many people prefer the more convenient option of using a simple, lightweight plugin to do the work for them.
Introducing Image Widget Plus
While our classic Image Widget plugin focused on adding a single image to your widget area, Image Widget Plus provides additional options for you to control how your images display within the widget:
Lightbox to showcase images by filling the screen, dimming the rest of the page in the background and creating a true focal point for your photo.
Slideshow to display images in a series, allowing users to scroll through several photos or graphics without leaving the page.
Random Images to give your page a fresh feel by displaying a random image each time the page is loaded or refreshed.
Using the native WordPress media manager, Image Widget Plus gives you the power to create widgets to display logos, photos, custom ads, and more.
Best of all? We’ve kept Image Widget Plus just as simple and easy to use as possible.

Comparing conditional logic in WordPress forms

Chris Lema experiments with several popular forms plugins looking at how they handle conditional logic. It is an interesting comparison, though just scratches the surface of the features of these plugins.

Comparing conditional logic in WordPress forms

Plugins | chrislema.com | 10 days ago

Conditional logic is the key to online forms Physical forms don’t ever feel as imposing as web forms. I don’t know why that is, but when I get a form at a doctor’s office, for example, that form collects tons of data on a single sheet of paper and I don’t feel stressed.
But when people design forms on your websites, because of the way most forms are designed, the form that might collect the same data ends up taking up the virtual space of three pages.
How do you get around this problem? You only show the fields that you need to. In other words, you do the thing that you can’t do on paper forms – you dynamically present (using conditional logic) only the fields that are appropriate to each user.
Because this is a critical feature of online forms, it’s no surprise that many WordPress form plugins support conditional logic.
These plugins offer it as a key part of their main features:
These plugins offer it as a part of their “pro” offering, or as an add-on:
Regardless of whether it’s an add-on or as part of the plugin, you’re going to want support for conditional logic in your WordPress forms because they make everything

I love this. Not only is the sub-account feature extremely useful, but they are even allowing sub-accounts to be transformed into a regular account.

New WordPress Plugin Blocks Spam User Registrations Using Stop Forum Spam Database

Stop Signup Spam will prevent user registration of anyone trying to sign up with an email address or IP address that has been reported to Stop Forum Spam.

New WordPress Plugin Blocks Spam User Registrations Using Stop Forum Spam Database

Plugins | wptavern.com | 17 days ago

When it comes to spam, comments are one of the first things that comes to mind. However, spam user registrations can be just as prolific on sites with open registration. Leland Fiegel, founder of Themetry, has developed a new plugin called Stop Signup Spam that prevents users from registering an account if their email or IP address is on the Stop Forum Spam database. Stop Forum Spam is a free service that records reports of spam registrations from blogs, forums, wikis, and more. Stop Signup Spam integrates with the WordPress registration form and Restrict Content Pro. Fiegel launched a new site over the weekend and despite not announcing it, it received a handful of spam registrations.
After Googling the registrants’ email addresses, he discovered a number of them were reported on Stop Forum Spam’s site. “I had never heard of Stop Forum Spam before, but it is basically an Akismet equivalent for forum sign up spam,” Fiegel said. “I noticed they had a dead link to a WordPress plugin. I looked up the Stop Forum Spam API documentation and built a basic one myself a couple of days ago. I submitted it to WordPress.org and it was approved within a day.”

In November 2015 I published an analysis of the WordPress plugins repository. I was predicting that 2015 was going to be a record year in terms of plugins submitted to the repo. While working on the data I also discovered that 4 out of 5 plugins in the repository were not updated anymore after 2-3 years from their addition to the repo. The post was relayed by WPTavern and there were quite some discussions in the comments, especially about the findings on the longevity of plugins.
Recently there was a renewed interest around data in the WordPress community with quite a few posts on the topic. All this activity prompted me to update the analysis I did back then. Without further ado here are the results.

Weglot Review: The Easiest Way to Translate Your WordPress Site - Create and Code

The web has gone global! So why is your site a monoglot? That is, why is your site in only one language when there’s a whole world of Internet users out there? In this post, I’ll be reviewing Weglot, a plugin which offers up a chance to make your WordPress site multilingual without investing dozens of hours into translation.
Like any WordPress translation plugin, Weglot helps you translate your WordPress site into multiple languages. But it comes at this angle in a different way than the WordPress translation plugins you might be used to. That is, Weglot gives you options.
If you just want a quick translation, Weglot can use machine translation to automatically translate your entire site with just a few clicks. Then, if you want a more refined approach, you can always go in and:
Manually edit translations
Order professional translations
Of the translation plugins I’ve used, it’s definitely the easiest way to translate your site (though not necessarily the cheapest). And that ease of use plays a big factor in why Weglot recently raised an impressive €450,000 in seed funding.
In my Weglot review, I’ll show you exactly how this nifty translation plugin

How to Outrank Your Competitors’ SEO on The NEW WP.org Plugin Repository

Plugins | freemius.com | Mar. 29, 2017

Yesterday the new plugins directory was officially released replacing the old, “legacy” one. Many community members (including me) feel that most of the issues that were addressed during the feedback phase were unfortunately ignored, but one thing that was significantly improved for sure is the search. It is still lacking way behind the search capabilities of designated search services like Addendio, but it’s much better than its predecessor.
The much-anticipated update to the plugins’ search is a HUGE thing. Not only does it obviously affect the WordPress.org repository search, it also changes the search in the WordPress Admin dashboard on ALL of the millions of WordPress sites out there (27% of the web).
Many developers in the WordPress community aren’t aware of the power of SEO in WordPress.org directory, but if you think about it, most of the traffic to your plugin’s or theme’s listing is coming from search. Here are the top 3 channels:

Why We Love Paying for WordPress Plugins

Plugins | limecuda.com | Apr. 18, 2017

Everybody loves free! You get what you want and you don’t have to give up anything for it! But is it the best “value”- even at $0.00? Is anything ever really free? Can we really get something we want without trading something for it?
TL;DR Why we love paying for plugins
Can trust they will be updated and improved over time
They are a more safe of a cart to hitch your horse to for the long haul (path dependency)
Support exists and is usually very helpful
The author / company has a VERY keen interest in your success with their plugin
What about free WordPress Plugins?
Don’t get me wrong, we love free plugins too. There are free plugins that we use almost all of our WordPress projects. There are many high quality and reliable plugins built by people that we know (some we like ;) ) and trust.
Why pay for WordPress Plugins?
However, we really love paying for premium plugins as well. But, when many in our community expect things for free, we feel the need here to dig into why we love to pay for WordPress plugins.
Open Source works phenomenally well but sometimes the author / company’s interest in providing well for themselves is an even more effective and predictable

The new WordPress Plugins repository went live a couple of weeks ago and the changes caught by surprise quite a few plugin authors although the testing had been going on for over a year. WPTavern covered the event and highlighted how there were quite some negative reactions around some of the changes, mostly around the removal of the stats and the tabs in general. You might be asking, why are you talking about this? The reason is that while the WordPress repository was undergoing major changes we were also busy at Addendio with some major changes. The interesting part of all this is that we actually went in the opposite direction compared to the WordPress repo by going fully into a single-page-app mode and we fully embraced tabs.

Announcing Safe Updates

I know you don't like doing updates, but you gotta keep your website safe. So we came up with a better way to handle WordPress core, plugin & theme updates.

Announcing Safe Updates

Plugins | managewp.com | Apr. 10, 2017

If there’s one thing I really hate doing, it’s updates. It’s important to keep everything up to date, but it also eats up a lot of your time: if the update itself does not fail, you still need to make sure the website did not break in so many wonderful ways. So for the past several months we’ve been working on a better way to update WordPress websites. We call it Safe Updates. Right now, the update process is straightforward: you see an update, you click it, wait for it to finish, and then check the website to confirm that everything is OK. If you’re using ManageWP, you get a few benefits of having all updates on one screen, seeing which versions have a known vulnerability, plus you’ve got backups in case something goes wrong. But this is not enough.
Safe Updates is a new take on the core, plugin & theme update process. Here’s how it works:
Create a restore point: if something goes wrong, you can roll back the update
Send an HTTP request to the website: if it’s not 200 OK, we stop the process
Grab a “before” home page screenshot: we can later compare it with the after screenshot to spot inconsistencies

Why You Should Put Your Old Plugins Up For Adoption

Plugins | torquemag.io | Apr. 6, 2017

If you’re a plugin developer with multiple plugins in the repository, it can be hard to make sure they’re all up to date. If you aren’t regularly monitoring all of your plugins, you might get a notice like this: This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress
If a WordPress plugin isn’t updated regularly, it may be considered abandoned. Abandoned plugins can be a security threat and will eventually stop working as it loses compatibility.
Plugin abandonment can happen for multiple reasons:
The developer doesn’t have the time to work on it.
The developer is no longer interested in it.
Supporting a free plugin becomes difficult.
What is Plugin Adoption?
If you maintain a lot of plugins, it can hard to keep up with all of them. You may not be able to update on time or respond to support tickets, and ultimately your plugins go unmanaged and become abandoned.
After seeing a lot of abandoned plugins, the core team found a way to give them a second life. If you’re ready to let a plugin go to a new developer, use the tag “adopt-me,”
