How to Analyze Your WordPress Site's Performance

Tutorials | competethemes.com | 6 hours ago

This guide is written for anyone who wants to learn the fundamentals of WordPress performance optimization. For many WordPress beginners, their vocabulary for understanding website performance consists of “fast” and “slow.”
Like with all topics, you can’t understand the subject matter well without learning the terminology first.
In this post, you’ll learn a few new terms and use a free tool to help you better understand your site’s performance.
How to measure your site’s performance
There are lots of tools for measuring a website’s performance, but in this post, we’ll be working exclusively with the popular GTMetrix performance grader.
GTMetrix will score your website’s performance based on both the Google PageSpeed Insights test and YSlow. It also provides a handful of practical metrics to further demystify your load times.
To use this tool, all you have to do is copy & paste your website’s URL into the field on the homepage and hit Enter.
GTMetrix will run a few tests over the course of about 20 seconds, and then you’ll see a report like this:

WordPress Localization: What It Is and How to Localize Your Website

Tutorials | translatepress.com | 8 days ago

What is WordPress localization, really? The term sounds mysterious enough. It’s no wonder that many WordPress website owners have a tough time understanding what WordPress localization is, and how to do it effectively. Is WordPress localization about making your site multilingual and translating it for overseas markets?
Is it about displaying a local language version of your site based on where the reader is from?
And, if you’re a developer, is it about preparing your theme or plugin for translation?
We’re going to answer all these questions in this guide to WordPress localization.
First things first:
What is WordPress localization?
In a nutshell:
Localization is the process of adapting a product (or content) to a specific locale, language, or local market.
This adaptation process usually involves translating the item in question to some local language.
Localization is also often referred to as “l10n” since there are ten letters between the letters “l” and “n” in “localization”.
Localization vs. internationalization

Speed Up Your Development with Visual Studio Code

Discover Visual Studio Code (VS Code) extensions and keyboard shortcuts you hadn't heard about before.

Speed Up Your Development with Visual Studio Code

Tutorials | webdevstudios.com | Mar. 5, 2020

Visual Studio (VS) Code was released on April 29, 2015 by Microsoft. In a very short time, it has taken the coding world by storm. As of 2020, nearly 51% of developers claim to use it as their primary development environment. This, in itself, is shocking. When it first came out, nobody expected a tool made by Microsoft to become so dominant. After all, Sublime Text and Atom (made by GitHub) were incredibly popular and had a large user base; Microsoft had a large hill to climb.
Microsoft did lots right when developing VS Code, but there are a few (okay, five) specific things that sick out (to me) that make it universally appealing. First and perhaps foremost, they integrate extensions as a primary function of the IDE.
This focus is obvious. It has a button in the activity bar! Extensions are popular in Atom and Brackets, as well (both very similar IDEs built on Electron), but neither have made extensions so accessible and simple. This means that if, for some reason, you want your editor to work differently, there’s probably an extension for that. If there isn’t one, you can code one yourself using their thorough documentation and API.
Secondly, Visual Studio Code is fast.

Is your website running slower than a puppy pulling a freight train? For first steps to remedy the situation, check out our blog post on Diagnosing a Slow WordPress Site. If your site is still running slow, it might be time to consider migrating your website to a new hosting provider. [0] => Survey Your Requirements
When migrating your WordPress website and choosing your next host, some things worth considering are:
What level of support you require via email, live chat, or phone
Traffic
Be cautious with budget hosts (typically, $8 per month) that advertise UNLIMITED bandwidth or traffic. While cheap vendors might be sufficient for small blogs, often several thousands of websites are being hosted on the same server, fighting over the same system resources, which can result in slower speeds for more complex websites.
If your website is critical to your business success, it’s best to go with a company that allocates service by visitor count and typically starts with pricing around $29 per month. Often, when choosing a host based on metered traffic, your website is hosted on faster servers with a minimum guarantee of system resources.

In this article, we’ll be looking at how to customize WordPress emails of different types, so you can control each type of email you need to send to your users. Trying to customize WordPress Registration Email normally means copy-pasting a custom function into the functions.php file and then modifying it to fit your project.
But what often happens is that you’re not sure how to implement this because you’re not a developer and you’re not sure how to use the filters that are set up in place.
Now imagine that you can customize the:
WordPress Registration Email
The email sender and body text with the info from the fields on the registration form
Override the from address so that it is the name of the business
Customize the Admin Email sent when a new user is registered so the email content matches your brand
Enable WordPress User Registration Email verification
All without touching a single line of code, directly from an intuitive email customization interface.
This is now possible by using the Email Customizer module from Profile Builder Pro. It allows you to modify default WordPress emails sent to both the administrator, as well as new users.

17 Powerful Ways to Speed Up Your WooCommerce Store (2020 Ultimate Guide)

Tutorials | kinsta.com | 16 days ago

Speed is money for an ecommerce site. The faster your site loads, the better the shopping experience. A better user experience translates to improved SEO, increased ROI, and happier customers. This ultimately leads to greater revenue and profits. Shoppers today expect high-resolution images and videos, live chat, user reviews, real-time inventory, personalization, and a host of other dynamic tools.
Online shoppers have a short attention span. Hence, all the features they expect to have a faster and smoother buying experience are the same ones that slow down your ecommerce site if you don’t execute them properly.
WooCommerce is the most popular ecommerce platform in the world and is free to use and tweak as per your requirements.
WooCommerce has been downloaded over 88 million times to date. As of now, it’s in use on over 5 million websites.
Unlike other popular shopping platforms, you don’t have to pay a percentage of your revenue to WooCommerce if you use it. There are some overhead costs associated with running a WooCommerce-powered store though.
But there’s a catch! Since WooCommerce is free with limited support, you’re responsible for maintaining it

You may have noticed that many popular e-commerce sites are multilingual. That’s not a coincidence. Every language you add to your store means more potential customers have the opportunity to enjoy your products. The challenge, of course, lies in the translation process.

Boost Your Video View With EA Sticky Video for Elementor [Free]

Tutorials | wpdeveloper.net | Feb. 12, 2020

EA Sticky Video lets you pin a video to a corner of your WordPress Website when your users scroll past it. That way your video stays visible to your readers all the time. Readers are highly reactive to boring and lengthy video content. If you have created a video for your WordPress website in the past you can relate to this. Along with creating a quality video you also need to make sure your presentation of the content is outstanding. And this is where EA Sticky Video for WordPress comes into play. It lets you keep your readers engaged in your web content.
How Does EA Sticky Video Work?
Videos are a widely used content type. They can be used independently as well as with other content types i.e. text content. Most of the time when we are embedding videos inside a blog, it is either to complement the text content or to cover a completely different aspect of the blog topic.
But the problem with embedding videos inside blog content is, it is static and stays fixed to a certain position. Scrolling ahead of the video means, you no longer see the video. In order to continue watching the video, you have to scroll back up to the section where the video is placed.

Integrating Advanced Custom Fields + Gutenberg Into wd_s

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

Emergency situations can affect any organization. Whether it’s a weather-related closing, a sudden change in business hours or a leaky pipe in the basement – things happen. And one of the best ways to communicate these types of issues is by posting it on your website. This information is vital and needs to stand out from the rest of the site’s content. In addition, it should require as little effort as possible to add. This is especially the case if your client is the one updating the website.

The Complete Guide to WordPress REST API Basics

The WordPress REST API opens up plenty of opportunities within the WordPress ecosystem. Learn how to get the most from it!

The Complete Guide to WordPress REST API Basics

Tutorials | kinsta.com | Dec. 9, 2019

The WordPress REST API is in the process of changing WordPress. You may not have noticed, as a lot of it is under the hood, but the implications of the REST API make a huge difference to the future of WordPress, both in terms of its codebase and its uses. If you haven’t worked with the WordPress REST API, you might be wondering just what it is. So let’s kick off by looking at what the REST API is.
What is the WordPress REST API?
The WordPress REST API is an interface that developers can use to access WordPress from outside the WordPress installation itself. You access it using JavaScript, which means it can be used to create interactive websites and apps.
REST stands for Representational State Transfer and API stands for Application Programming Interface. Let’s take a look at what each of those means.
An Application Programming Interface, or API, is defined as:
“An interface or communication protocol between a client and a server intended to simplify the building of client-side software.”
If you aren’t familiar with APIs, that may not help very much. To put it more simply, an API is a set of code that allows one system to interact (or “interface”)
