    To me one of the most meaningful shifts in computing the past few years has been how the resolution of displays is getting higher and higher, and interfaces are starting to become resolution independent. I feel like when pixels disappear there’s less of a wall between people and the technology, it starts to blend and meld a bit more. It’s something I’ve been personally passionate about since the first retina iPhone, tirelessly beating the drum at Automattic to make everything we do shine on hi-DPI screens, or leading the WordPress 3.8 release that brought in MP6 project to…

    An important best practice when coding a WordPress theme or plugin is correct prefixing. In this post, we’ll look at: Why prefixing is needed in PHP. Why prefixing is needed in WordPress specifically. How to prefix properly in your code. Prefixing in PHP Programming uses the concept of namespaces. It’s an abstract concept that can be explained as a type of container that contains all your code. In PHP, all functions, classes, interfaces, constants and variables defined outside of functions and methods live by default in the global namespace. This means that the names you give to…

    Since its release in 2011, Bootstrap has quickly become the most popular front-end framework on Github. This popularity also has an impact on the world of WordPress themes, with authors using the framework during development or even releasing themes that feature Bootstrap as unique selling point. This is surprising, because Bootstrap is not a great fit for WordPress theme development.

In this post, we’ll go over the best practices for enqueuing Google fonts in your WordPress theme.

It’s common practice now to populate blog posts with plenty of images to keep visitors engaged. Because let’s face it: paragraph after paragraph of densely-packed text isn’t all that appealing. In fact, it looks like work. Still, you have a number of options in how you present images in your posts. You can insert a standard image, of course, but you can also create and insert a gallery.

And yet, there are not a lot of blog posts out there helping users get the most out of this all-important admin area. “What you see is what you get” may be the term for how the editor functions, but that doesn’t need to be our attitude towards the editor itself.

  • How to Prevent Duplicate Post Titles in WordPress

    Editorial Staff
    24 Oct 2014 | 7:10 am
    Did you know that post title and URL play an important role in SEO? Having a duplicate post title can negatively affect SEO performance of your site. WordPress deals with duplicate post titles by adding a number at the end of URL slug. However, these titles are still duplicate, and you should try to avoid them.

    Is it really difficult to create apps specifically meant for Android devices? Is Android being an “open source” platform a concern for app developers owing to which safe and secure apps seem to be out of Android’s dictionary? A lot of developers and competitors believe that the open source is a cause of concern especially when it becomes the source of costly and time consuming app development.

  • 10 Gorgeous Flat Responsive WordPress Themes

    17 Mar 2014 | 6:33 am
    “Flat design” was developed as a response to the once-dominant design school of skeuomorphism, which attempted to recreate real world objects in iconic form. For instance: a skeuomorphic “On” button on a website might look like a real world light switch. For a variety of reasons, tastes have changed. Today, more and more users (and designers) want cleaner, more functional interfaces. Enter the “flat design” aesthetic. The gist of flat design is that usability is king. According to this philosophy, graphical user interfaces (GUI) shouldn’t be too…

But if you’re looking to get more creative with your forms or if  you are looking to do a lot more than just create contact forms, then Arforms is a really nice premium option. Priced at $33, Arforms is a handy contact form builder plugin. Right from creating beautiful contact forms to analyzing their performance, Arforms has got you covered.

  • 10 of the Most Expensive WordPress Themes and Why They Charge so Much

    16 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    Crossing the $100 mark, here are ten of the most expensive WordPress themes. I’ve skipped some of the premium ones beyond this price tag purposely as I didn’t want one niche to dominate the roundup. WordPress founder, Matt Mullenweg’s Automattic is leading the league here. Adding 7 to the number of the most expensive themes for WordPress, Automattic is doing rather well in the premium WordPress market. Each of these themes is responsive. Its a given, isn’t it? All these themes will look lovely on all your mobile devices. The first 7 themes are for WordPress.com and the…
  • Media Temple Managed WordPress Hosting Review

    Sourav Kundu
    15 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    Founded in 1998 by Demian Sellfors and John Carey it is Media Temple is one of those name that aren’t unheard of in the web-hosting industry. Although this $53M company was acquired by GoDaddy in October 2013, Media Temple operates as an independent company (bet you didn’t know that!) So what makes Media Temple so special? Is it the 24/7/365 indelible customer support, or the Grid cloud servers (also known as “Reddit Ready” servers) that can serve from 1 to 1 million concurrent users, or the fact that they’ve been the go-to company for serious hosting? Joe had already…

    What size? It took 4+ weeks to get here but I’ve been far too busy to really care about not having one so when my wife dropped it on my chest as I lay passed out on my couch (I didn’t hear the knock on the door) I didn’t react in my typical fashion of exuberance; sleep seemed like a much more attractive activity than restoring and reconfiguring a new device. But eventually my curiosity gave way and I stumbled to my notebook computer with the small package in hand. 5 minutes later I was in the process of restoring an iCloud version and was generally underwhelmed. It’s…

    A Publishing Toolbox! If you’ve been around this blog for any length of time then you probably already know that I’m a big fan of WordPress (both the .com and .org). Although I’m not overly dogmatic about this particular technology as I am more inclined to recommend anything to anyone as long as they are blogging, I believe that WordPress has a lot to offer both the casual and serious digital publisher. I especially believe in the “independent web,” a web that celebrates real control of the content and stories that you write. I believe that’s vitally…
  • What a CEO Does

    John Saddington
    22 Oct 2014 | 1:44 pm
    A CEO does these three things: Sets overall vision and strategy of the company and communicates it to all stakeholders. Recruits, hires, and retains the very best talent for the company. Makes sure there is always enough cash in the bank. I love this and I love the simplicity of this list. You can read the post and the really helpful comments for some even other great insights. Now, naturally a CEO’s specific role depends greatly on the rest of the leadership team and the stage of the company as the CEO of a publicly traded company has dramatically different responsibilities as the…
  • The Startup Groupie

    John Saddington
    21 Oct 2014 | 8:01 am
    It’s tough to grow a startup. Talent is limited and not readily available, often because those who are capable are already busy doing great things in other ventures. And the right talent to not only survive but thrive in a startup environment is hard to pin down and classify. Often times I know with more certainty what doesn’t work instead of what does work, if that makes sense. I liken it to the eternal question that you’ve asked (and been asked): So, what/where do you want to eat? Typically I know what I do not want to eat instead of what I really want to eat. I can…

    When I read Max Schireson’s blog post on why he was stepping back from the CEO role of MongoDB I was really impressed by not only his perspective but his transparency. Sure, he may have disqualified himself from many opportunities but I think that level of transparency disqualifies him from the wrong type of organizations and ventures so he has not lost anything in being honest and forthcoming. I have often put my business first and my family second. This goes for not just my beloved bride but also my two wonderful kids. They have often gotten the short end of the stick. Making…

    Sparring Mind

  • Habits > Hacks

    Gregory Ciotti
    19 Oct 2014 | 9:47 pm
    Compounding interest produces the most meaningful results, not individual swings. Why then, has the world become obsessed with “lifehacks?” Partly because a small selection of shortcuts are useful and meaningful. But also because businesses know that we are drawn to the illusion of progress. I’ve often joked that Men’s Health has given up on writing headlines because they know that the market for fitness information is greater than the actual information available. You’ll laugh, but let us not forget we live in a world where customers were buying…
  • Are You Cultivating Knowledge, or Just Consuming Information?

    Gregory Ciotti
    4 Aug 2014 | 9:43 pm
    Quality output demands quality input. As healthy food fuels the body, so does brain food fuel the mind. Garbage in, garbage out as they say. Amidst the “sky is falling” debates over how TV and the Internet are making us mindless drones, this is the real issue to keep in mind — we need to be cultivate more than we consume. It’s an important concept worthy of regular revisiting. To begin, let’s explore a theatrical look on what is at stake when we don’t take our information diet as seriously as our nutritional diet.

  • “Don’t Do Something You Might Regret”

    Gregory Ciotti
    19 Jun 2014 | 2:34 pm
    Regret is the worst emotion to base your decisions on. Regret is negative reinforcement. It is self-loathing and destructive. So why do we often parrot the advice of “Don’t do something you might regret?” On the surface, it seems a simple message that encourages caution, but it could be structured without the worry and pessimism. Why not say: “Do something you’ll be proud of.” Or “Do something you would respect someone else for doing.” This places emphasis on allowing your values to drive your choices, rather than letting anxiety control your actions. It is impossible…
  • Beethoven’s Surprisingly Simple Habit for Creative Breakthroughs

    Creativity does not rest on eureka moments — it is a process, designed to consistently bring abstract ideas into the tangible world. For creatives, this emphasizes the importance of routines. Random bits of profound inspiration are few and fleeting; consistent work in your craft requires a sustainable way to develop good ideas into great ones. Recall the wise words from Chuck Close: “Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just show up and go to work.” Perhaps one of the best ways to improve your own processes is to study the masters. Thanks to books like…

    2 Jun 2014 | 6:51 pm
    In all my time as a substitute teacher for elementary school, perhaps nothing out of the mouths of babes disappointed me as much as this: “But Mr. Greg, girls aren’t good at math like boys are.” From one of my favorite students no less. It was disheartening to hear. At such a young age, abilities in subjects like mathematics had already been defined as innate. It appears I’m not alone in my worry — psychologist Dr. Grant Halvorson has published excellent essays like The Trouble With Bright Girls, where she has addressed how this “fixed mindset”…

The difficult thing about creating written tutorials however, is that they take an age to organise. First you need to take screenshots of the steps in your guide. Then you need to name them, open them in a photo editor and annotate them. Then there’s the process of uploading them to your blog, adding your meta data, scaling and inserting them into your post. That’s all before you manage to hit…

Usability is the true measure of success for any online endeavor, whether it is an eCommerce website, or for that matter, a more personal blog that depends on adsense for its revenue purpose.

    Few days ago I had the opportunity to witness with my own eyes an extraordinary effect that a slow website can have on your business. On Monday, Sep 15th because of a glitch in our network setup, pages on ManageWP.com were opening about 4 seconds longer than usual. More precisely metric known as ‘time to first byte’ was affected which is basically time before your browser starts rendering any content from the moment you visit a site.

Then I’ll compare three monitoring solutions: Jetpack Monitor, our own uptime monitoring feature, and Pingdom.

It’s what will draw in readership, what will make your content shareable (and hopefully viral) and what will move you up the ranks amidst the competition. Of course, there are bloggers who are “successful” because they’re train wrecks nobody can look away from, but even they have some authority on what they’re dishing about (such as Perez Hilton and his knack for covering the latest celebrity gossip). Things get a little more serious when…

A majority of my sites send their Apache logs to Papertrail. Having all my apache logs easily accessible and searchable is extremely nice. It’d make sniffing out Shellshock attempts quite simple.
