It’s that time of the year again… Black Friday, Cyber Monday… deals, offers and discounts beyond what your eyes can see. This year Black Friday falls on the 27th of November, with Cyber Monday being on the following Monday, the 30th of November.
As we’ve done in the past (and successfully I might add), we’ll be compiling a list of all the best deals, offers and discounts from all over the WordPress world.

As theme authors we always want to use the best plugins in combination with our themes so that our clients can have the best experience with their new site. At our company we build themes that are packed with key features for the particular niche and stay light and fast at the same time. So obviously we want to recommend the best plugins to work alongside our themes.
Protecting your WordPress site from hackers can be rather difficult. In fact, there is no one-solution that guarantees a 100% safe and secure site.
Studies show that tens of thousands of websites are hacked daily. Although securing your own site and the data it holds is top priority, it’s also equally important to keep your visitors’ data safe as well. Sites that don’t take proper security measures tend to face a decrease in traffic over time as they lose their credibility. This statement holds true even more in the case of e-commerce sites.
WP Mayor is 5 years old! I started this site in November 2010 as a way of sharing what I was learning while developing WordPress websites for clients (I ran an agency in Malta at the time).
I’m very thankful of how the site has grown during the past five years, it’s a long time in internet years and while others have fallen by the wayside we have continued going strong. Thankfully this is no longer a one man job, Alyona and Mark have been doing a great job, and we also need to thank the many guest bloggers who have contributed and continue to contribute regularly.
