  • Introducing Hello Theme: The Fastest WordPress Theme Ever Created


    Many of you already know, love and use Elementor’s Hello theme, but this week, our starter theme was officially added to the WordPress repository, so we figured our baby deserves a formal baby shower.
  • Speaking at Your First WordCamp? Here's What You Need to Know!


    Are you contemplating speaking at your first WordCamp? You should do it. One thing I hope you’ll recognize throughout this blog post is that we all have different perspectives. The different journeys we have taken provide real value for others. So, let’s stop thinking about it and take the next steps on how you’re actually going to speak at your first WordCamp. Content This is what is going to get you onto the WordCamp roster. Whatever your topic, I urge you to consider the audience. Picking a Topic First of all, do not discount beginner talks because you’ve heard them before or you think no one is interested in them. Let me tell you about WordCamp Minneapolis 2013. As organizers, we put a beginner talk in the smallest room because we made the same assumption—that it wouldn’t be a popular talk. We were wrong. The audience was so large that people were standing in the back of the room and overflowed through the doorway into the hall. Beginner talks are often the best, as there are always newcomers, and you’ll likely bring a fresh perspective to the subject as the presenter. Besides the skill level of your presentation, think about who it is aimed
  • OceanWP + Freemius = Perfect Match!


    Below are some important points to help you understand why we made this decision and what upcoming changes there will be to OceanWP’s platform. Many of our users have been reporting issues with license key activation. Obviously, this is a very important part of OceanWP’s premium extensions, as the license key allows you to get updates directly from our platform to your websites. With Freemius, license key activations will work smoothly and the process will be easier than it was before. The main change here is that the Agency plan will offer you the possibility to activate licenses on up to 25 websites instead of an unlimited number of websites. Don’t worry, if you bought the Unlimited plan before the switch, your license will be grandfathered-in and your activation limit will not change. Why are we getting rid of the Unlimited plan? We’ve discovered that the vast majority of users who bought the plan were not using it for more than 20 websites. Furthermore, having an unlimited license increases our support load and responsibility disproportionately to the value of OceanWP’s products and the customer support required for larger companies. So, as a young
  • Using Social Media Marketing for eCommerce


    I’m sure I don’t have to tell you how important social media marketing is for an eCommerce shop. It doesn’t matter if you are a big brand or if your online store is just your side hustle. If you want to sell products in today’s crowded marketplace, you need to be using social media and you need to be smart about it. When I’m not slinging code for WordPress here at WebDevStudios (WDS) and Maintainn, my wife and I run a small online store where we sell our handmade leather goods. We’ve been at if for just over three years now, and social media drives 70%-80% of our sales. We rank pretty well for some key search terms in our niche, but even with Google’s domination of the search market, it doesn’t send us anywhere near the sales that social media does. That’s not to say you should ignore trying to rank well in search engines, just that you should definitely put some energy into social media, as well. I’m going to share some of what works well for our shop and hope it can help you get more sales from social media. A lot of this is going to seem obvious once you read it. Most good advice is, but sometimes you just need to hear someone
  • New in EditorsKit 1.5: Autosave On/Off Toggle, Highlighted Text and more...


    WordPress plugin developer Jeffrey Carandang continues to plough forward with new features for EditorsKit, a collection of page building block options for Gutenberg. What began as a block visibility management plugin has grown to include more features aimed at tweaking various settings in the editor. Version 1.5 adds some text, heading, and paragraph styling and formatting options that aren’t currently available in core. For example, Gutenberg lets users change the background color and text color for an entire paragraph, but that’s where the color customizations end. EditorsKit now supports highlighting a section of text or a heading and choosing a color or background color. This may seem like a niche request to implement but Carandang has tracked nearly two dozen related issues and discussions where users are asking for text highlighting or similar features. This release also adds underline and justify alignment options to the paragraph block. Gutenberg doesn’t include it by default, as WordPress 4.7 removed the justify button from the TinyMCE editor in 2016. However, the demand for justified text has not disappeared. In adding the format to EditorsKit, Carandang
