A Comprehensive Guide to Creating a Multilingual WooCommerce Store

Tutorials | translatepress.com | 5 days ago

Thanks to the web, online shoppers can choose to buy products from almost anywhere in the world. Want a pair of shoes you can’t find locally? Buy them from another country. Need a replacement part for your foreign-made car? Hop online and get it in a couple of days. But while the web has made the world smaller in a lot of ways, language barriers continue to add friction to the online shopping experience, particularly for non-English speaking consumers.
According to a Common Sense Advisory survey, 75% of people want to buy products in their native language. Across the 10 countries surveyed, 56% either spend more time on sites in their own language than they do in English, or boycott English-language URLs altogether.
That’s why it’s important ecommerce businesses invest in creating a multilingual WooCommerce store, one that provides quality translations and localized currencies, sizes, shipping, and more.
But how do you create a multilingual WooCommerce store? Let’s take a look.

10 Best FTP Clients for WordPress Users (Mac and Windows)

Tutorials | kinsta.com | 5 days ago

Building a website requires files and folders. Building a complicated website requires a seemingly endless supply of files and folders. If you’re a developer or designer it becomes incredibly overwhelming. You may forget where a media file was moved to or maybe a theme folder has gone missing or didn’t transfer to the server properly. Regardless of your problems, you need one of the best FTP clients to help you stay organized. What’s the Point of an FTP Client?
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol, and it allows you to connect your local files on a computer to an online server. For instance, you may be creating a WordPress site. In that case, you could build a website on your computer, then eventually move all of the files to your server and launch your website for the world to see. In short, it gives you the opportunity to organize your files, make edits in a private environment, and also check to see if anything is going wrong.
All FTP clients are different but the important thing to know is that you want a client that works on your Operating System and you’re looking for a user interface that’s easy to move around and sort out the folders.

Scroll Animations with Intersection Observer

Tutorials | webdevstudios.com | 18 days ago

When creating even the most basic scrolling animations, there are many steps involved just to add or remove a class name with JavaScript. With modern ES6 syntax, it’s time to simplify how much effort is needed by taking advantage of the Intersection Observer API. In this article, I’ll show you how to create a basic Intersection Observer that will add or remove a CSS blur when an object has entered or left the viewport. What is Intersection Observer?
Intersection Observer is a really awesome JavaScript API that simplifies scroll-based events in JavaScript. Rather than constantly checking the distance from the top, Intersection Observer watches when an element enters or exits the viewport. It’s really that simple, and you can create features such as scroll animations, lazy loading images, inserting new elements into the DOM, and triggering notifications.
The IntersectionObserver interface of the Intersection Observer API provides a way to asynchronously observe changes in the intersection of a target element with an ancestor element or with a top-level document’s viewport. The ancestor element or viewport is referred to as the root.

Tutorials | kinsta.com | 21 day ago

Creating a WordPress site isn’t enough. You also need to pay attention to some good ol’ WordPress maintenance. When you’ve put lots of time into creating your site, it can be disheartening to think that the work isn’t over. In fact, it’s only just begun. But it doesn’t have to be a burden.
In this post, I’ll go through some WordPress maintenance best practices and give you some tips to make it more effective. I’ll also include a guide to paying someone else to do it and review some of the best providers of WordPress support services.
Putting Your WordPress Site into Maintenance Mode
Plenty of the work you do to maintain your WordPress site won’t involve putting it in maintenance mode, but sometimes you’ll need to do this—so it pays to know what it means.
When your site is in maintenance mode, it means that you’re telling visitors and search engines that it’s currently unavailable, but that unavailability is planned and temporary (i.e. your site hasn’t gone down).
When you update WordPress, or you update a theme or plugin, WordPress will automatically go into maintenance mode (stuck in maintenance mode?

WordPress Plugin Development Best Practices: Template Files

In WordPress, templates are usually used in themes. But there are plugins like WooCommerce and EDD that use template files to display content as well. In this article, Delicious Brains explains how you can do this too in your own plugins.

WordPress Plugin Development Best Practices: Template Files

Tutorials | deliciousbrains.com | 19 days ago

When we talk about templates in WordPress we are normally referring to page template files in the theme. However, there are plugins that use template files to display content, and that becomes another consideration when it comes to building WordPress themes. Can you override plugin template files? If so, how? If you are building a plugin that renders HTML, how can you make it easily altered by themes? In this article I’ll answer these questions.
What Are Templates?
The WordPress templating system is one of the most important pillars of the WordPress architecture. Template files are “PHP files that contain a mixture of HTML, Template Tags, and PHP code.”
Template files are loaded in a specific manner, governed by the WordPress template hierarchy. Specific template files are looked for in the theme, and fallbacks are used if they don’t exist. For example, a car listing site has registered a custom post type of ‘car’. When a user visits a page on the site for a specific car, WordPress will look in the theme for a template file called single-car.php. If it doesn’t exist, it will fallback to the single.php template for displaying generic posts.

Blocks Plugin Unit Test: Choosing the Perfect Gutenberg Plugin

Gutenberg Blocks Plugin Unit Testing. This tutorial aims to help everyone choose the best WordPress blocks plugin that fits their website and has the best compatibility with the active theme.

Blocks Plugin Unit Test: Choosing the Perfect Gutenberg Plugin

Since the launch of new WordPress Gutenberg block editor, there have been a lot of blocks plugin added on the plugin directory. Most of these Gutenberg blocks plugins provide several collection of useful blocks that you can integrate easily on your website. The huge question is which of these plugins perfectly fits your needs and works smoothly with your current theme? Sure you can try themes with sample contents on it, but there has been no way to do unit testing when it comes to Gutenberg blocks. You have to manually add each block that you want to test to the editor and hope that it’s not broken on both backend and frontend views.
It’s probably not news to you that I’ve created EditorsKit plugin which provides set of tools for Gutenberg editor. One of my goals with this plugin is to provide help to users to make the switch from Classic Editor easier. This is the main reason I’ve added a lot of formatting options that are available on TinyMCE but missing on the block editor.

Integrating Advanced Custom Fields + Gutenberg Into wd_s

After much back and forth in building, testing, building, testing, and reviewing we are super excited to announce that wd_s is now a Gutenberg-first theme!

Integrating Advanced Custom Fields + Gutenberg Into wd_s

Tutorials | webdevstudios.com | Oct. 24, 2019

With version 5.8 of Advanced Custom Fields (ACF), a new way to build Gutenberg blocks was introduced. The mission statement of ACF with this pivotal update was to: …radically change the perception of block development in Gutenberg by reducing learning time, hurdles, environment setup and JavaScript knowledge to an absolute minimum.
They have done exactly that.
For quite some time now, our wd_s starter theme has been powered in part by Advanced Custom Fields. Using the Flexible Content Field, we were able to create a page builder-esque experience for users. This experience lived on the backend when editing posts and pages. We didn’t set out to create a full-on page builder or content builder like the ones we’ve used in the past. We simply understood the need for users to have full control over their content, the placement of that content, and the overall structure of their posts and pages.
And it worked! It worked for a long time. In fact, it still works beautifully.
With the advent of WordPress 5.0, Gutenberg became the hot topic when discussing the CMS. Some absolutely loved the new experience while others reviled it for myriad reasons, such as it felt rushed, it

WordPress 5.3 is getting closer (now we’re at WordPress 5.3 RC1) and we can’t wait to see all the upcoming new features and enhancements in action. So what can we expect from WordPress 5.3?
First and foremost, a whopping number of releases of the Gutenberg plugin is going to be merged into the core, from 5.4 to 6.6. This means we’ll see a huge number of features and enhancements for both users and developers, as well as an important boost in performance.
But there’s much more than Gutenberg in WordPress 5.3.
In fact, 5.3 features several improvements related to the Site Health Tool, a brand new default theme (TwentyTwenty), enhancements in the Admin User Interface, better support for PHP 7.4, improved accessibility, and much more.
That’s a lot of amazing stuff, right? So, let’s buckle up and dig deeper into WordPress 5.3.
At the time of this writing, the next Major Release of WordPress is far from being stable. We can still expect several bug fixes before the final release, scheduled for November 12, 2019, but no more commits for any new enhancements or feature requests are admitted.

How to Translate WordPress Menu into Multiple Languages

Tutorials | translatepress.com | Jul. 2, 2019

Translating a website requires more than a simple translation of the content. For instance, a major concern is how to translate a WordPress menu. The menu is one of the first elements of a site that users notice, and they base their first impression on it. When building a multilingual WordPress menu, there are several aspects you need to pay attention to. Some of your pages or products may be related or available only to some countries, so you may have to hide those menu items for certain languages.
The translation also impacts the menu design. For example, it’s well known that German words are on average longer than English words, which influences the spacing between menu items.
TranslatePress helps you translate any WordPress menu, in a couple of clicks using a visual translation editor. Below we’ll go into the simple steps to achieve this.

At a high-level, WordPress salts are a way to keep your WordPress site secure by helping to securely store and authenticate the passwords of users at your site. In this article, you will learn:
What Are WordPress Salts? In More Detail
WordPress salts, along with their companion security keys, are a cryptographic tool that helps secure your WordPress site’s login.
Specifically, salts and security keys secure information in the cookies that WordPress uses to log you in.
See, once you log in to WordPress, you have the option to stay logged in so that you don’t need to enter your username and password every single time. To accomplish this, WordPress saves your login information in cookies, rather than using PHP sessions.
That’s super convenient for users, but it also opens the potential for a security issue if someone were able to hijack your browser’s cookies.
To avoid this, WordPress uses salts and security keys to secure your login information so that malicious subjects can’t do anything with it. Think of them kind of like “extra” passwords for your site that are almost impossible for a malicious actor to guess.
