This is a case study from Elementor as one of the key elements in their latest site redesign, plus takeaway lessons on how you can do the same.
Site redesigns can be stressful. Like, seriously. Even more so than building a new website from scratch. At least when you’re creating a new site, you don’t have to worry about your already existing pages, posts, custom code tweaks, and other things that can (and will) break when you press that ‘launch’ button. That’s why it’s a good idea to have some helper tools at your disposal that can minimize stress and take on some of the workload, rather than force you to figure it all out. In other words, if you can find a tool to handle part of the work for you, you really should! There’s no reason to do everything by hand.
This is where Elementor comes into play for us.
Hi, I’m Karol. I’m part of the CodeinWP team, and I ensure that our main blog at CodeinWP.com/blog runs smoothly and has fresh content every week (hint: you should check it out).
Several weeks ago, we re-launched our site, rocking a refreshed design and some under-the-hood improvements to make the site faster, make our readers happier, and impress Google in the process (at least we hope so).
This is the story of how our new redesign was created, and why we chose Elementor
The launch of Freemius Insights for Themes comes right during the discussion around data in the WordPress ecosystem
Freemius Insights has announced that its analytics service that was previously only available to WordPress plugins is now available for themes. The company was founded in 2015 by Vova Feldman and his team after discovering how much information is not available to developers who host plugins and themes on the official WordPress directories and marketplaces. Freemius Insights for themes gives developers an opportunity to collect a large variety of data, including, email addresses, PHP, plugin, WordPress version distribution, and more. When a user installs a theme that uses Freemius, an opt-in prompt is displayed that notifies them that data will be sent to Freemius.com to help improve the product. Selecting Skip prevents data from reaching Freemius.com.
Feldman says that he and his team have worked closely with the WordPress Theme Review Team to ensure that Freemius Insights does not violate the theme directory requirements. One of the most informative features that Freemius Insights provides is the ability for users to provide feedback if they decide to switch to a different theme.
When a user switches away from a product using Freemius, a prompt is shown with randomly displayed questions
