The WordPress plugins setup that empowers our startup

Even if company culture and shared beliefs are essential elements to a startup, one big piece of the pie is still missing: the tools we need to keep the business running smoothly. Since we get this question a lot, we're sharing all the WordPress plugins we use at Codeable and why we picked them :)

The WordPress plugins setup that empowers our startup

Plugins | codeable.io | Jul. 13, 2015

The WordPress ecosystem is continuously growing. Every week a new business based on WordPress comes up. Whether it's a consultant developing an online paid course, a web designer crafting WordPress themes or someone who wants to create another news website about WordPress, there are plenty of ideas. In many ways, Codeable is like one of these ideas but still it has something I happily enjoyed right from the beginning. The minute I started talking with both Codeable's Co-Founders Tomaz and Per, I was already hearing numbers, stats and having admin access to almost all of Codeable's online tools.
Way before me joining the team, Tomaz was already keeping up with his tutorials to help WordPress users learn new stuff and was also sharing some of his projects with the WordPress community. More: we share our side-project ideas and accomplishments in our Slack's main channel just to let the others know more about them.
You get the point: openness and transparency are kind of a big deal around here.

How To Choose A Great WordPress Theme For Your Business

Picking the right WordPress theme is an important aspect of any business. But with so many options out there, it might be hard to understand how to choose the one that best suits your business. We've got you covered with this in-depth guide!

How To Choose A Great WordPress Theme For Your Business

Community | codeable.io | Oct. 18, 2016

Whether you’ve just decided to build your website on WordPress or you’re thinking of a redesign, you're probably trying to find your way around the different options out there. Multi-purpose themes, specialized themes, frameworks, custom themes: which one should you use? If you post a project on Codeable, one of our experts will guide you through these options and help you decide. But if you haven't, let me try to shed some light on this topic.
At the time of writing this blog post, there are 7,283 themes on Themeforest, 4,080 on WordPress.org repository, 1,810 on TemplateMonster, 1,222 on MojoThemes and probably a couple more thousand from individual theme developers or marketplaces (such as ElegantThemes, StudioPress, WooThemes, Templatic, AppThemes, EngineThemes etc.). If we add them all up, we get a total of more than 15,000 WordPress themes, both free and commercial, to choose from.
Intimidating, right? So where do you start your search for a new WordPress theme, as going through all of them and checking out the demos sounds an insane thing to do?
You might think that you don’t care much about looks, you can go with a random theme and save yourself the trouble

How To Move Your WordPress Website To A New Domain Without Hurting Your SEO Rankings

When you need to move your WordPress website to a new domain address, it's not just a matter of copy-pasting some file to a new "home".

How To Move Your WordPress Website To A New Domain Without Hurting Your SEO Rankings

Community | codeable.io | Oct. 26, 2016

As many people have had to move homes (for whatever reasons), sometimes websites also have to move their "home", which is their domain address. But when you transfer a website to a new domain you should also pay attention to something that has no counterpart in our home-moves: SEO rankings. When you need to move your WordPress website to a new domain address, it's not just a matter of copy-pasting some file to a new "home". It's a matter of making this process as smooth as possible and doing all you need to lower any loss within your SEO rankings that you gained with your old domain.
But how is this possible? What should you take into account to properly move your WordPress website to a new domain and prevent it from losing its SEO rankings?
I'll get through all of these points, but first, let's start with a key clarification: what's a domain name? Roughly said: what you usually type on your browser bar is a website's domain name.
For example, codeable.io is a domain name, google.com is another domain, facebook.com another one. Domain names have been introduced to help users better remember a page's unique IP address, which is made up of numbers.

How To Integrate fullPage.js With Advanced Custom Fields

A step-by-step guide on how to integrate Advanced Custom Fields and fullPage.js, a free jQuery-based JavaScript library created by Álvaro Trigo

How To Integrate fullPage.js With Advanced Custom Fields

Community | codeable.io | Nov. 15, 2016

fullPage.js is an immensely powerful free jQuery-based JavaScript library, offering (as the name suggests) an ability to create very attractive, dynamic and responsive full-screen scrolling websites. The library was created by Spanish developer Álvaro Trigo and it is being used by some of the world’s top brands. The library itself is very easy to use, even though for some customizations and changes you need to go through the code. But everything is “where it should be” and well commented.
Given the popularity of Advanced Custom Fields plugin and the way the library works – specifically menu items and sections – I was thinking about finding an easy way to create all the sections only from one page using Repeater field, at the same time allowing people to add new menu items easily without the need of any programming knowledge. The code I created is indeed lightweight and quite different than other themes, even though I didn’t care much to search if anyone had the same idea regarding ACF/fullPage.js integration. Please note that Repeater field is part of ACF PRO, which means you’ll have to pay some money for it.

10 quick tips to enhance the security of your new WordPress website

Tutorials | codeable.io | Oct. 21, 2015

You’ve been working on it for the last couple of months and, even if you’ve missed some nights out with your friends, and have slept a few hours less, you’re done: your new WordPress website is now ready to go live. It's been a lot of time and work, I know, and it’d be a nightmare having to deal with security issues as soon as you make it available on the Web. So you’d better tweak some aspects right from the beginning and go live with an improved WordPress website.
WordPress security is an important aspect you’ll have to take into account for every action that affects your site, starting from the plugins you choose to install, the themes you’ll end up using and other aspects that don’t come to your mind as frequently as they should.
Security is a serious thing and an ongoing process that you should always keep under your radar. Think of the following security tips as layers you’re adding to your website, making it harder to be hacked and violated.

Codeable Happiness Report | May 2016

Community | codeable.io | Jun. 2, 2016

May’s signs of love from our clients Welcome to another edition of our Happiness Report! This month we look back and reflect on the month of May and at what we’ve learned, implemented, and have planned.
If you read last month’s report, you might remember that our median response time had crept up on us a bit as a result of increased traffic, increased onboarding of clients, increased projects being posted and we had just removed our expert apply page from public view. This of course resulted in a sudden increase of developers messaging us in support asking where the page went.
So in the month of April, we replied to 987 (90.4%) with a median first response time of 21 minutes.
Our goal for the month of May was to get down to 15 minutes, hopefully less. This would have been around a 30% decrease in our median first response time.
I’m unbelievably proud of our team to have Shattered that goal! Our new stats for the month of May are: Replied to 1,001 (85.6%) with a median first response time of 5 minutes
This is approximately a 75% decrease in response time!! Go team!!

The last 3 months have been crazy here at Codeable because we've reached not one, but two significant milestones for a less than 3-year-old company. Yep, confetti time it is!
You read that correctly: $1 million has been paid to our top experts in such short time. It's no secret we only work with high-quality developers and designers around the world who can provide high standard results (97% of all applicants who apply to become a coveted Codeable expert are turned down). But if they prove to be as great as they say, they're rewarded for their amazing work and helped to get new and qualified clients on a regular basis. They're one of our dearest assets. Therefore we're trying to make sure they grow with us. We treasure them.
With WordPress market share skyrocketing, the number of people who are in need of WordPress help is growing faster than ever. And with such high demand, business owners, entrepreneurs, and web agencies alike are having hard times finding reputable WordPress experts who can address their business needs in a timely, efficient, and stress-free manner.

17 Free Powerful Tools To Check Your WordPress Website Regularly

Running a business website isn't that different from being on a diet. As people on specific nutritional regimens, who regularly keep track of everything they eat to collect data about their diet, you as a website owner should do the same. Otherwise, you'll end up with a website that's less useful week by week, day by day. Here's a list of FREE tools to start with!

Have you ever talked to someone on a diet like cutting out carbs, substituting meat with other protein-rich food, or any other? Here I don't mean all those people who say they'll be starting next Monday, but end up never doing it. I'm talking about those who are motivated to getting closer to their goal. Those people. Do you know the toughest challenge they all share? After losing some weight or fat, they struggle in keeping their gains. Believe it or not, websites aren't much different from that. At least, websites that need to keep delivering and addressing your business needs in the best possible way.
As people on specific nutritional regimens, who keeps track of everything they eat regularly to gather relevant data about their diet, you as a website owner should do the same.
Did you install a new plugin to capture more leads? You'd need to keep your speed in mind because slow pages scare visitors away. Is a new field in your purchase form exposing your user's credit card info? Well, that should never happen! Is your website (or some sections of it) down because something happened but you have no clue yet? A big alert should be sent your way so you can act in a timely manner.

The WordPress developer's introduction to Docker

Friendly for a beginner but still a bit advanced guide on Docker and WordPress.

The WordPress developer's introduction to Docker

Tutorials | codeable.io | May. 10, 2016

In order to follow this tutorial, make sure you have Docker installed and working on your development computer (verify it by running $ docker -v in your command line). You don't need to have any prior Docker experience as I will try to explain things from the ground up. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to leave a comment below.
Last but not least a word of caution; while Docker is supported natively on Linux, it requires an additional layer to work on Windows and Mac (which, if you installed it, you already know). This problem slightly undermines the advantages of using Docker now, but since I have access to the beta (and you can too! Apply here) I can assure you these issues will go away soon. The issue is that you still need to have a virtual machine running, but the good part is that it's only to run a tiny wrapper Linux distribution, called boot2docker.
In order to understand what Docker is, let's look at a couple of problems we (and by we I mean WordPress developers) face on almost a daily basis.
We've all been in situations where we needed to share our code with another developer (or many of them). Once we committed our code to GitHub (you do use, Git, right?) and they

The 5-Word Syllabus You Need To Master For Hiring Remote WordPress Developers

There's a semantic world that developers do care about. This world accounts for and is framed around 5 key notions.

The 5-Word Syllabus You Need To Master For Hiring Remote WordPress Developers

Community | codeable.io | Jun. 27, 2017

Project scope, scope creep, gold plating, feature creep, scope discovery. What do they mean? The first time I hired a developer to work on my personal website, I had never have heard of them and had no idea these words were so important when working with an outsourced WordPress developer. I learned it though as the developer, at that time, pointed out I was requesting changes that were off what he and I had agreed upon.
At that time, I hadn't realized I was going a bit over my requests and I had no idea this "approach" had a name too: scope creep. That's what I was doing.
After apologizing to my developer, and saying I was really sorry for doing that (in my defense: it was literally my very first time outsourcing development = #noobalert), I wanted to know all about scope creep. So I started to do some research. And the more I researched, the more I discovered a semantic world that developers do care about.
This world accounts for and is framed around 5 key notions.
As they're still obscure and not 100% grasped to many, I wanted to shed some light on them and help you understand what they mean, when they occur and why they're bad for your client-expert relationship.

15 Cool and Useful WordPress Hacks that require no plugins

Tutorials | codeable.io | Jun. 13, 2015

One of the things I love about WordPress is the easiness to empower it with (almost) endless features thanks to plugins. With 38000+ free plugins and an uncountable number of premium and custom ones, there’s a WordPress plugin for every need and budget. And if you look online to get WordPress tips, tricks or hacks, you'll surely end on a blog post that’s covering a list of (great) plugins that will provide you with what you were looking for. Actually, it's quite difficult to find a great list of WordPress tips, tricks and hacks that doesn't count a plugin in it. I know, they are powerful tools, but plugins aren't always required to enable a specific feature because WordPress alone can do cool things too.
So my question is: how many interesting features can be enabled on a WordPress website without installing a single plugin? I've put together a list of the best WordPress code snippets (or WordPress hacks, you choose) that you can play with right away and see for yourself you don't always need a plugin.
The following piece of codes can break your website, so please pay attention and make a backup before getting your hands dirty with them.

Next time somebody tells you: "Yeah, I know WordPress. I hear it is good for blogs", please flick 'em on the back of the head while saying "Not true buddy". WordPress powers up around 25% of the entire internet, and there are plenty of e-commerce websites that successfully run on WordPress. NYT, Time, Walt Disney Company, and many more run on WordPress, so there's no room left for arguments like that. The problem is that issues and unexpected errors are part of life. As great as WordPress would ever be, it's affected by human limits that resolve in issues affecting your website, your clients', and your business eventually.

With more than 1.2 billion digital buyers worldwide in 2015, online shopping is a growing trend no one should ignore. With that number growing 7.5% in the next year, e-commerce websites sure look like a great opportunity from an entrepreneurial perspective. Selling products, whether they're online courses, handcraft jewelry, t-shirts, and so on, is an excellent way to broaden your website's current offer. With so many buyers, one question is popping up into my head: how much is the e-commerce world worth? How much money are people spending online to buy stuff around the world? Let's see.
The e-commerce world in U.S.
The Census Bureau of the Department of Commerce estimates that U.S. retail e-commerce sales for the Q3 of 2015 was $87.5 billion (+ 4.2% from the Q2 of 2015) and 15.1 % from the Q3 of 2014 (PDF file).

While version 2.7 had existed for a while, it was decided to “jump” directly to WooCommerce 3.0.0 because of the major leap the software has taken when compared to the previous 2.6 version. With its 3.0.x version, WooCommerce introduced great changes and new features both store managers and developers are going to love. Let’s see what they are!

Plugins | codeable.io | Oct. 28, 2015

As of today (end of October 2015), the WordPress plugins repository accounts for 40k+ plugins, which generated more than 1 billion downloads. Wow, right? Numbers aside, plugins are one of the main factors that make the WordPress ecosystem growing its user base so rapidly. WordPress plugins are the first choice for many when they need their website to "do something". There's a plugin for any particular needs: galleries, backups, SEO, contact forms, spam. The list is pretty huge. And if you take into account premium WordPress plugins, those numbers skyrocket.
With so many different types of business out there on one side, and the immense repository of plugins available on the other, does it make sense to have a list of essential plugins all new WordPress websites should feature, right from the beginning?
The answer is "yes".

The Step-By-Step Process To Properly Test Your WordPress Website Before Updating It (Workflow, Tools, & Scripts)

It’s easy to just go ahead and update your WordPress website, your theme, and plugin files by yourself. You just hit the “update” button three times and the job is, well… mostly done. You think that.
Everybody thinks that too.
But that’s not where the real challenge lies and where some issues might arise eventually. The “real deal” happens seconds after your updates, when you’ll need to check and test if your website is still working the way you want.
What if you’ve just updated your live site and you broke it? That’s going to be painful! And this is isn’t the worst scenario: what if the website breaks only on certain devices but you don’t realize it because you are viewing it from your desktop? To you everything seemed okay, didn’t it?!
I could go on with other examples, such as:
What if your checkout page is not working on iPhone anymore?
What if your contact form is not working on Safari?
What if your mobile menu is not opening on Android?
What if your product reviews do not show anymore on Firefox?
What if your footer disappears on Edge browser?

Stick with me, I’ll explain why actually scope creep is a bad thing not only for the expert but the client too. Then I’ll give you some tips on how to avoid scope creep from happening.
The project scope is the work that the expert has agreed to do for you. This is not always the same as your project brief. The brief is the important first step, but after discussion with your expert what work that get's agreed upon may have changed.

In this 3rd and final part of the series, we'll go through this topic by explaining what's Apple News, how it works, and how to publish content from your WordPress website on Apple News platform.

“Thanks David. I am loving this service our agency has been hit hard with requests for websites and without you guys there is no way I could keep up!” -KG Codeable is changing lives for hundreds and even thousands of people around the world. That’s not some cheesy tagline or cliche, it’s real and it’s what drives us every day to continue improving on our service, most of us working 10-12+ hours per day and a few more on the weekends.
Almost every single day we get people taking time to message us how Codeable has helped them in some way. For example, clients send us unsolicited thank you notes expressing their sincere gratitude for saving their website after it had been hacked.

Largely because our experts have already been vetted and they don’t need to waste time going through the vetting process themselves, hoping to find someone who can deliver quality results on their client’s project.
