WordPress Gets New Gutenberg Editor: What You Should Do as a Developer [UPDATED]

14 MIN READ

WordPress, the go-to 15-year-old content management system (CMS), still grows and experiences significant changes and improvements. During the last 2 years, 5 major versions have been released. Their focus was on editor, customizer, widgets and other minor improvements of UX. I would describe these improvements, released after the REST API in WP 4.4, as well-liked by both ordinary users and developers. However, the release coming very soon is a major fundamental change of the core WP experience, content editing. This change affects every WP user. For years, WP relied on tinyMCE editor, which is a quasi-WYSIWYG editor with an extensible list of buttons to add and edit rich content. Now, the core team behind WP has set a kickoff goal: to create a completely new post and page editing experience. Need to adapt to these changes and stay up-to-date As a plugin or theme developer, you may consider how this…

10 Photo Clichés Found in Every Photographer’s Portfolio

5 MIN READ

My lucky guess is it somewhat irks you that these days every other person with a camera calls herself or himself a photographer. Seems unfair that some spend years learning all those cool tricks and techniques while others just take a few mundane shots, start promoting their art right from the get-go, and get popular in narrow circles. So, is all the time and effort one has to put in to become a professional photographer worth it if others get an equal share of “fame” without the struggle? My answer’s a definite yes. To start with, photography is so much more than the climactic button press. It’s a form of art, a new language with an alphabet you need to know in order to read and speak freely and comprehensively. Only then will you be able to formulate new concepts in the language rather than just going on repeating the…

Best Image Optimization Plugins for WordPress

11 MIN READ

Last updated 7/30/2019 Why optimize images in the first place? Images often account for most of the data downloaded online, so if you constantly use high-resolution images on your website it can cause several issues, all particularly notable for smartphone and tablet users: High-resolution images cause long load times which boost your bounce rate and consequently have an adverse impact on your conversions. Long load time impacts SEO: slow websites are generally ranked lower by the search engines. If you have a high-volume website load, it will consume huge internet bandwidth from your visitors and cause real problems for those who have limited bandwidth.
