WP Mayor is 6 years old!

Thanks to all the people who have followed this website for the past 6 years, and of course all our clients and partners without whom coming so far would simply not have been possible.
Last week we had the pleasure of attending Web Summit 2016 in Lisbon, Portugal. This is one of the biggest worldwide tech conferences, and we were happy to see more startups and attendees that are also part of the WordPress community.
The WP Mayor team will be attending the Web Summit conference in Lisbon next week. We are looking forward to seeing what’s new in tech and also meeting people in the WordPress space. Last year we partied with our friends from WP Engine and this year we’ll be sure to repeat that and meet lots of other people from our community.

After all English is not even the most widely spoken language, so clearly we need to take care of the speakers of other languages and this will also help us plugin and theme developers make more sales for our products.
A very handy plugin to help you translate your plugins and themes is Loco Translate, which can be downloaded for free from the plugin repository.
A popular trend nowadays is to have a nice banner at the top of every post published on a blog. This helps set the tone and create an emotional response with the reader. In previous years it was more common to use photography for these banners or featured images, and it is indeed still a very good idea to use photography. However in more design or tech oriented blogs icons are all the rage at the moment. Here are the best stock icon sites I use on a regular basis.

When I first released this plugin on the WordPress.org repository I could never have imagined that in just a few years it would have reached this important milestone and enabled me to run a product business based on its premium extensions.
Support can make or break your business in the WordPress industry, which is composed of a huge but tight knit community where word spreads around quite easily.
