How to Make Twenty Nineteen's Content Full-Width - Benjamin Intal

Just some additional CSS to make Twenty Nineteen's content Full-Width.

How to Make Twenty Nineteen's Content Full-Width - Benjamin Intal

Tutorials | benjaminintal.com | 2 hours ago

If you’ve updated to WordPress 5.0, then you probably noticed the new Twenty Nineteen theme. It very simple, with a huge emphasis on the content and clean typography. It’s great. However, the content area is really made for articles and blogging.
For wide screens, the content is nudged to the a little bit to the side. This works well for articles, but for creating pages especially with the influx of Gutenberg blocks, the content area should evenly fill the width of the screen.
Twenty Nineteen doesn’t currently have an option to do that. But you can easily do that by adding this line in your Customizer:
body.page .entry .entry-content > *,
.entry .entry-summary > * {
max-width: none;
}
That will only widen pages and should leave your blog posts alone.
Here’s what the pages look like before:
Here’s what it looks like after adding the CSS:
Now if you also wanted to do this for posts, you can use this CSS:
body.single-post .entry .entry-content > * {
max-width: none;

How to Display Dynamic Sidebars and Widgets to Reduce Bounce Rate

Dynamic sidebars and widgets can help reduce your site’s bounce rate and improve your chances for a conversion.

How to Display Dynamic Sidebars and Widgets to Reduce Bounce Rate

Tutorials | kinsta.com | 7 days ago

Today we’ll be diving into the topic of dynamic sidebars and widgets (those that are content-relevant); more importantly how they can help reduce your site’s bounce rate and in turn improve your chances for a conversion. We’ll show you how to create a sidebar, along with widgets that show your visitors exactly what they want to see based on the topic or content of the current page or post. What Is Bounce Rate?
Before I show you how to reduce bounce rate by displaying content-relevant sidebars and widgets, let’s first define bounce rate.
Bounce rate refers to the percentage of site visitors who enter and leave rather than staying to explore other pages on your website. To reduce bounce rate you need to increase engagement, and this tells you much about your site’s usability. When a visitor finds your content useful, they stay and are willing to explore the site for even more useful content. This, in turn, gives you a higher conversion rate. The longer your visitors stay on your site, the greater the likelihood for more sales, sign-ups, and ad revenue.
Of course, you want them to stay longer, so you must have something that will stop them from leaving too

WordPress 5.0: How To Keep Using Classic Editor & Disable Gutenberg

Tutorials | wpdeveloper.net | 3 days ago

WordPress 5.0 replaces its Classic Editor with Gutenberg. This sudden change can badly impact your WordPress Website if your team struggles to get a hang of the new Editor. If you are looking for a way to revert back to Classic Editor and keep your life as simple as it was previously, then you are in the right place. Gutenberg For WordPress
Gutenberg For WordPress is an editor which now comes as default with the WordPress 5.0 update. To some, it might be a great upgrade. However, chances are you might not like the Gutenberg Editor at all as it changes the writing experiences a lot from the previous one we all were comfortable with. Now as you have already upgraded or want to use the WordPress Bebo, you would probably think if there's a way to go back if you don't like it. Well, don't worry. As Gutenberg is rated 2.2 out of 5 on WordPress, there's high chance you would like to revert back to WordPress Classic Editor.
So what do you do if you have already upgraded to WordPress 5.0 and now feel stuck with Gutenberg? Why not switch back to the Classic Editor?

Multilingual SEO on WordPress: 7 Tips To Rank In All Languages

Tutorials | translatepress.com | 14 days ago

SEO is hard enough when you’re only trying to rank in one language. But add a few more languages to the mix? Well, yeah, WordPress multilingual SEO can feel a little overwhelming. It doesn’t have to, though. Multilingual SEO is really just about applying all those same SEO principles and then also following some basic guidelines to make sure that each language has the same chance to benefit from your SEO efforts and rank in Google.
In this post, we’ll cover those best principles so that you can have all your site’s translations ranking.
You’ll still need to build some links and do some keyword research – but this guide will make sure Google can index all your content and serve up the right translation to visitors from around the world.
Let’s dive in…

How To Create Custom Blocks for Gutenberg with Block Lab

A little tutorial on creating custom Gutenberg blocks without getting knee-deep in JavaScript.

How To Create Custom Blocks for Gutenberg with Block Lab

Tutorials | speckyboy.com | 7 days ago

Of all the amazing things the new block editor (aka Gutenberg) for WordPress can do, the ability to create custom blocks is right at the top of the list. This feature allows developers to tightly integrate their own content and layouts within the editor in a standardized way. While we lose a little bit of flexibility in terms of what we can do with the edit screen, we gain a more consistent UI. This can be a big help when training clients to use WordPress. Plus, it just looks cleaner than the Classic editor.
Among all this great news is a bit of a catch: The default way to build a custom block requires that you wade knee-deep in JavaScript. Specifically, WordPress uses the React.js library to power this interface. It’s incredibly dynamic, yet features a fairly steep learning curve for those of us who primarily work with PHP.

How to Use Icon Fonts in WordPress the Right Way (Better Performance)

Do you really need all those icons? Probably not. So don't load all of them. Check out how we decreased the size of our icon fonts file by a whopping 97.59% by using a font generator.

How to Use Icon Fonts in WordPress the Right Way (Better Performance)

Tutorials | kinsta.com | 12 days ago

Back in the early days, icons were readily available, but implementing them efficiently in WordPress was a bit more difficult. You could get around some issues with sprites, but they were not always a good way forward, and as retina screens started coming out, the problem was magnified (quite literally). One of the most common solutions to this problem is to use an icon font. Icons are web fonts or vectors, so you can scale them infinitely and a lot of icons can fit inside a single file, bringing down your request count considerably. This allows you to use almost any icon you can possibly dream up. However, with this, also comes some performance considerations.
We’ll show you in this article a couple different ways to use WordPress icon fonts, where to get them, and which method might be the best for your site.
Where to Find Icon Fonts
There are a lot of great places to now find icon fonts for your WordPress site. Just type “icon font” into Google will yield you some great results.

Contexual Optins with Caldera Forms

Newsletter optin forms are more compelling when they speak directly to the readers interest. This tutorial shows you how to achieve that with a simple shortcode and Caldera Forms. Everyone wants to get more subscribers to their email newsletter. There’s so many different tactics from the extremely obnoxious to the completely banal.
At Impress.org we tend to lean heavy on content marketing. We love providing value to our audience through our expertise and insights. We hope that in return for that free content, we might get a few emails here and there.
For the most part that works just fine. Recently though, we launched a new product, which means its newsletter list is relatively tiny. WP Business Reviews is a great product and we’ve been writing some really awesome content all relevant for business owners wanting to learn about online reviews, SEO tactics, reputation management and more. But we want more people to learn more about it as quickly as we can. So how can we ramp up the subscribers without moving into that “obnoxious” territory.

Our first step toward more signups is putting the optin form a bit more front-and-center to all our articles.

Mostly though it is due to not being updated regularly or logins. I have watched first hand a brute force attack on a test site that was not indexed by Google and had no visitors.

WordPress Activity Log - 7 Things You Should Be Tracking

When your WordPress website is small, it’s easy to keep tabs on everything that happens within it. However, as it grows in size and complexity it can become a lot harder to keep up. This is particularly true if you enable users to register on your site, run a membership site, or have multiple contributors on it. Regardless, it’s vital to know what’s happening on your site at all times. You can do this by tracking user activity such as changes to content, profile updates, failed logins, and more. When you have information like this at your fingertips, you can quickly track down the source of any problems and maintain tight security.

Using Block Templates with Gutenberg - Bill Erickson

Tutorials | billerickson.net | 2 days ago

Block templates are one of my favorite new features in Gutenberg. You can specify a list of blocks that automatically appear in the content editor, and you can customize what appears in each block by default. You can also lock the template so no additional blocks can be added. This is a great replacement for metaboxes in many cases. You can control the content structure without sacrificing the visual editing experience.
Block templates are currently set for an entire post type, but you will soon have more granular control to define them in page templates and other contexts.
Here’s a few examples from a website I’m working on right now.
Post template with ads
Our client is a publisher who needs at least two ads in each post. There’s a few approaches we’ve used in the past:
Automatic insertion after X paragraphs. It’s simple to maintain but the ads often don’t follow the natural breaks in article.
Manual insertion using a shortcode. The content editor can ensure the ads work well with the content, but it’s more difficult to manage and easy to forget.
With Gutenberg, we simply pre-populate the content area with two ad blocks (built with Advanced

The Font Awesome v5 WordPress Problem

A post about potential problems that could arise with the new version of Font Awesome when used within WordPress themes and plugins

The Font Awesome v5 WordPress Problem

Tutorials | wpgeodirectory.com | Oct. 1, 2018

This blog post is mainly to draw attention to the brewing problem with using Font Awesome v5 in your WordPress Plugin or Theme. What is Font Awesome?
It’s a little CSS (or JS in v5) file that you can add to your site to be able to use lots and lots of fancy icons on your site.
What’s the problem?
There are really two problems;
1. The first (less serious) problem is a common problem with JS/CSS libraries and WordPress and can affect FA v4 not just FA v5, that is the fact that two developers might add the script and use different names so the same file gets added to the website twice. The fix to this is relatively simple and is resolved by the two devs using the same name to add the file, we use and we suggest “font-awesome”.
2. The main brewing problem with using Font Awesome in WP these days is that FA v5 introduced a new way to use it, in FA v4 it was always just a CSS file but now it can be used either as a CSS file or as a JS file. This is fine for “Joe Blogs” with his html website but once you are using a CMS (content management system) like WordPress which has plugins built by many many devs you have the situation that both the CSS and the JS

9 Tips For Hosting Dynamic WordPress Sites

Tutorials | blog.visualcomposer.io | Oct. 11, 2018

One of the big reasons that so many people love WordPress is that you can use it to create pretty much any type of website. From blogs to eCommerce stores to membership sites, WordPress can do it all. But…the same can’t be said for the average WordPress host… While pretty much any host can handle a simple WordPress blog or brochure site, WordPress sites that rely more heavily on dynamic content, like eCommerce stores or membership sites, require a more detailed approach to hosting and optimization if you want them to perform well.
For example, you’ll hear horror stories of the WooCommerce dashboard that takes minutes to load or run reports. Or the online course content that takes forever to load and frustrates course-takers.
To help you avoid that being your site, we’re going to dig into 9 tips for hosting dynamic WordPress sites like:
eCommerce stores built with WooCommerce or Easy Digital Downloads;
Membership sites built with any one of the many quality membership plugins out there;
Online courses built with LMS plugins;
Social networking sites based on BuddyPress, PeepSo, or others;

Two Rules Of JavaScript Async/Await

Tutorials | joshpress.net | Nov. 1, 2018

Ever wanted to write a JavaScript function that makes a HTTP request and then returns the results? Sounds simple, but the “and then” part of that sentence includes a lot of complexity. That is because when you make an HTTP request — it is performed asynchronously. This applies to jQuery AJAx, fetch, Axios, Nodes’s HTTPS module, etc. I’m not going to cover callbacks and promises. I want to ask you to forget about all that and learn two rules. With those rules, and a modern JavaScript runtime, you can write a function that solves the requirement I gave before in a few, highly readable lines, using async/ await.
