There is a lot of craze and stir around flat and minimalistic designs. Every esteemed web-design blog is bound to have an article on them and argues either for or against them. Probably, you’ve already got an idea what a flat (or sleek) design is. But let’s take a look at whether flat templates are really that great and what can you get out of them.
WP Engine has continued leading by example when working with its affiliates, increasing its commission rate to a whopping $200 per sale earlier this week.
That’s right, if you’re a WP Engine affiliate, when referring a personal or professional plan, your commission for each sale will increase from the previous $150 to $200! That’s a minimum $200 dollar commission for every sale you bring to WP Engine!
Creating a good looking thumbnail image for any post type is one of the first ways to attract your visitors’ attention to that section of the site. Showcasing an uninteresting part of an image could deter a visitor from going anywhere near that particular post. This is where My Eyes Are Up Here comes in.

WPMU DEV has come a long way since since its start as a Multisite resource site back when Multisite was even called Multiuser!

Anyone who has had a lot of content that they want to show directly on their homepage has, at one time or another, considered or used a slider. These sliders are a good way to showcase and highlight your important content, while at the same time grabbing your viewers’ attention from the moment they open your site. They can be used to display multiple images, as well as videos and other content, depending on the purpose of your site.
There are a lot of slider plugins out there, however not all serve their purpose well. Some of them are slow, mainly due to the fact that they won’t be coded well enough, resulting in an increase in your page load time. This should be a major factor when choosing the plugin you want to use, as slow loading times can push visitors away from the get go. Others are not that easy to use for beginners, while most aren’t even responsive. The use of a responsive theme is vital nowadays, and not having a responsive plugin could undo all your hard work. Make sure you pick a plugin that would look as good on your phone as it would on a desktop.
