  • WPForms has acquired Pirate Forms


    Today, I’m excited to announce that we have acquired Pirate Forms, a popular WordPress contact form and SMTP plugin, with over 300,000 active installs. Pirate Forms was created by ThemeIsle, the company behind popular WordPress themes Zerif and Hestia. They built the plugin in 2015 to add a simple contact form solution to their fast-growing themes. At the time, most WordPress form plugins were not beginner-friendly. That’s why in 2016, we launched WPForms with a single mission: create the most beginner friendly WordPress form plugin in the market. Since then, WPForms has passed over 1 million active installs and has an average rating of 4.9 out of 5 (with over 2400 five-star ratings). I have met Ionut (ThemeIsle founder) at numerous business conferences, and we always talked about increasing collaboration between our two companies. We both put user experience as our #1 priority and have a lot of similar philosophies regarding the WordPress product ecosystem. In his recent visit to United States and Awesome Motive HQ, we furthered our discussion on ways to work together and shared our respective growth plans for our companies. During our conversations, we both agreed that
  • Guide to Completing Website Projects on Time


    The past month, I have been watching from my home office the comings and goings of an array of contractors at my neighbor’s house. They are building an addition to their home, preparing for the birth of their first child. I have watched the frenzied movements with curiosity and, I am not afraid to admit, a bit of anxiety knowing that her due date was quickly approaching. As a Project Manager, I started to think this is very similar to the way our clients come to WebDevStudios (WDS). Much like my neighbors, our clients have a need and a deadline to go with it. Perhaps their timeline for a new website corresponds to an upcoming event or a new fiscal year. Regardless, we respect these due dates and deliver their website projects on time. Here’s how: We obtain assets early. First, we ask for all assets, third-party integrations, hosting information, etc. early on in the project life cycle. If we wait till we get to the point in development when we actually need them and there is a hiccup, it inevitably would set us back. By simply asking upfront, we eliminate those disruptions. Even if our clients don’t have this information at the start, it gets the ball rolling sooner
  • A NEW Way to Style & Integrate WordPress Custom Post Types


    WordPress is not just a blogging platform. By using Custom Post Types, you can build all kinds of complex websites, turning WordPress into a full content management system. There are several plugins, including Elementor, which help you manage custom post types and build content that is custom fit to your needs. Whether you are interested in adding movie reviews, real estate listings and even WooCommerce products, all this functionality is possible thanks to custom post types. Post Types are “types of content”, grouped in a structured way within WordPress. Because WordPress’ most famous post type is called “Posts”, it is easy to make the mistake of thinking that Post Types are inherently about WordPress Posts. But a Post Type is a generic term that encompasses all types of content. Currently, there are 8 default WordPress post types.

Although similar, Posts are time-based listings while Pages are hierarchical in structure, with Parent > Child relationships. Also, Posts make use of taxonomies
  • The Future of Gutenberg and Genesis


    Gutenberg is the future of WordPress. It brings the promise of new functionality, enabling developers and designers to create reusable modules (“blocks”) for design and content, while empowering end-users to combine and customize those modules to do everything from launching twenty simple landing pages in an hour to building a complex new digital experience. There are also valid concerns with the project, on subjects such as launch timeline and backwards-compatibility. A healthy path forward means addressing concerns while embracing the new benefits. There are some key questions we want to help you answer such as… How will Genesis support the transition to Gutenberg? How will this result in new, wonderful features for the designers, developers, and end users of Gutenberg-enabled WordPress sites? How will Genesis make it easier and more efficient to create new Gutenberg-powered themes? How will Genesis help you lead with Gutenberg? We’re going to be posting heavily in the coming months on studiopress.blog to help address these questions and to share the work the newly expanded Genesis engineering team is doing to help you lead with Gutenberg. The Gutenberg launch
  • Selling WordPress Plugins with Freemius


    Starting a plugin business these days is hard. The market feels saturated and it looks like that everything you think of is already there. In such a saturated market, how will people find your plugin? I have thought of the same thing. I’ve decided that I want to focus on developing (and a little marketing) but I don’t want to lose my energy on maintaining a licensing solution. In this article, I’ll try to make it easier for you to start a plugin business with Freemius. Why Freemius? There are of course a lot of options you could choose to sell your WordPress plugins with. One of the most popular ones is using Easy Digital Downloads and their Software Licensing. Another one is using WooCommerce and their Software Add-on. There are a bunch of other options which I’ve described in my other article on making money with WordPress products. I’ve chosen Freemius because they have a platform that just works with a 5-minute integration SDK. They also work on extending their platform with new features and improve existing ones. One of the great things is that you don’t have to worry about payment gateways, VAT and similar stuff that involves transactions. Everything
