Tutorials and walkthroughs are a wonderful resource. Scroll through Pinterest and you’ll see plenty of visually striking step-by-step guides from eager bloggers trying to help out their readers. 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 publish!
Today we partnered up with JoomUnited to deliver you this cool giveaway. You have a chance to win 3 of 9 yearly licenses of JoomUnited Plugin: 1 license per extension worth $39 each.
There are a number of posts on WordPress blogs (including our own take on the GPL and potential abuse) that deal with WordPress plugin and theme licensing. Many people don’t really understand the concept of open source software, and either view it as a sure way to financial ruin or the best thing ever as there is no protection and everything is free.
It’s not so straightforward. Many websites have sprung up during the past year or two reselling WordPress plugins and themes. One of the biggest ‘victims’ are Woothemes whose add-ons for WooCommerce are now easily available from other websites for a very small fraction of the price that Woo sells them for.
Managing your content on WordPress is an important part of your website’s success. Whether you publish posts three times in a week or three times in a month, planning ahead is always good practice so you can set goals for yourself and your blog.
A great way to schedule your posts ahead of time within WordPress is a plug-in called CoSchedule. This plug-in allows you to view your blog post schedule in a month-view calendar, making it visually compelling and easy to use.
