Coronavirus: 20 WordPress Community Leaders Share Their Thoughts

The unexpected WordPress community's struggles, measures, and mission in the time of the Coronavirus pandemic

Coronavirus: 20 WordPress Community Leaders Share Their Thoughts

Community | codeinwp.com | 1 day ago

WordPress is being used by millions and, as the Coronavirus circles the world, it is impacting the WordPress industry overall. At the beginning of this pandemic, I was interested to see how various WordPress entities are being affected, so I’ve reached out to business leaders and independent professionals in our industry to learn what they’re doing to keep things going. With all the crazy past days, I wasn’t expecting lots of replies. To my surprise, many people made the extra effort to stop for a moment and share their thoughts with the rest of us. Each time I got a reply, I rushed to see what people are going through, what their struggles are and how they are holding up in such unexpected times that we’re living.
The things you will read are very different as people are going through various challenges. Some deal with adjustments for working remotely. Others are figuring out ways to keep their income and support their employees. Many are struggling with focus while dealing with an unpredictable future. And most end on a positive note and a feeling of hope and longing for togetherness.
Even if each contribution is different, they have one thing in common –

How to Work Remotely with Kids at Home

Has the current pandemic forced you to work remotely from home? This may seem ideal, but if you have kids at home, too, it can be disruptive. WDS Frontend Engineer, JC Palmes, is a homeschooling mom. She offers an abundance of educational resources to keep your children engaged while you work.

How to Work Remotely with Kids at Home

Community | webdevstudios.com | 4 days ago

We are currently in the middle of an unprecedented crisis. Face masks, alcohol, hand sanitizers, and toilet paper are all gone, and those who thought that the COVID-19 is “just like the flu” are all facing that fact that staying at home is best for everyone. For a company like WebDevStudios where everyone is 100% remote, it’s just business as usual. But a lot of us have kids, and with school out, work is disrupted because you are now faced with keeping a child or two engaged in something just so you can continue to work. This is where I come in. My family is a homeschooling family. We’ve been homeschooling for nine years now and both my hubby and I have been working from home for over a decade. We have learned a lot over the years, and I’d love to share some valuable information and resources with everyone who is struggling to work remotely with kids at home. Disclaimer: IT IS NOT EASY. You will need a LOT of PATIENCE and TRY to remember that they’re your kids and you LOVE them.
The younger the kid, the harder it is. My kids were four and five years old when we first started homeschooling them. They did not know how to read and write. They’re

Staying Connected to the WordPress Community

Even though WordCamps and WordPress Meetups across the globe are being cancelled, there are still ways to stay connected with the WordPress community. Here are some ideas.

Staying Connected to the WordPress Community

Community | webdevstudios.com | 11 days ago

Even though people are refraining from gathering in groups right now, there are still lots of ways you can continue your WordPress education and get your WordPress community fix. Mr. Rogers is often quoted during hard times:
When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’
This couldn’t be truer in the WordPress community, in general, and it’s increasingly evident as more and more people self-isolate. For example, as office employees are starting to work from home for the first time, remote workers are offering tips and support. By staying connected with the WordPress community, you can help lift spirits (including your own), reduce feelings of isolation, and find strength to help make it through this rough patch. Here are some ways you can do that.
Virtual WordCamps
Most WordCamps that were scheduled between now and June 1 have been cancelled or postponed. For many, WordCamps are the only time we get to connect with other WordPress community members in person all year. We look forward to them and all the excitement they bring.
It can be devastating watching

As the status of the COVID-19 virus continues to change on a day-by-day basis, and businesses start to adapt to a new way of working, we wanted to share a little about things here at Weglot. Firstly, we hope you are all keeping safe. It’s certainly been a very humbling period of time for all of us around the world. Whilst we can’t change the situation, we can help by staying at home as much as possible to help our health systems as much as possible.
In terms of business, whilst for our team nothing changes and we’re lucky enough to be able to continue working remotely, we do understand and sympathize immensely with companies that cannot carry on and we can’t even begin to imagine the impact this pandemic will have on people all over the world.
In particular, how the virus will change the way many of our users do business and the communities we’ve enjoyed helping and watching grow over the last few years of working within our industry.
Something we wanted to do in the hope of supporting the situation where we can – is to offer temporary Weglot accounts to any website related to providing information about COVID-19. We feel it’s important to be

How to Analyze and Boost WordPress Performance

Constant analyzing, improving, and monitoring your site are keys to success. Here is how and some incredible tools to help you out!

How to Analyze and Boost WordPress Performance

WordPress may be the most popular content management system (CMS) in the world, but it does have its unique kinks. If you’re considering using WordPress as the foundation for your site or have just started using it, there are a number of things you need to know. The most important is that website performance is one of the most crucial things that need to focus on.
Why the Need for Speed?
The age of digital has seen the power and capabilities of digital devices, platforms, and infrastructure go through huge advances. Today, the average smartphone has more computing power than was used to power Apollo rockets to the moon in the past. We’ve gone from dialup modems to fiber optic home Internet lines.
According to Google, the world’s largest search engine has decided that for ideal user experience, it needs websites to perform well in order to get better rankings. At the same time, because users are bombarded by a ton of information from always-on services, their attention span has dropped – along with their patience.
Today, your website needs to be able to load and present itself to visitors quickly – or lose them.

Google Schema Changes for COVID-19 and More Free Features!

Community | surniaulula.com | 3 days ago

On March 17th 2020, in response to COVID-19 self-isolation trends, Google published new Schema properties for virtual, postponed, and cancelled events. The latest Premium version of WPSSO Schema JSON-LD Markup provides several customization options for these new properties in the Document SSO metabox. This past month, the Free / Standard versions of WPSSO Core and its WPSSO Schema JSON-LD Markup add-on have also received several new features — most notably, almost all customization options in the Document SSO metabox are now available in the Free / Standard version of WPSSO Core (except for those options that require an integration module from the Premium version to implement, like video service APIs), and the Free / Standard version of WPSSO Schema JSON-LD Markup now includes all 495 supported Schema types!
The WPSSO Ridiculously Responsive Social Sharing Buttons and the WPSSO Social Sharing Buttons add-ons have been removed from the SSO > Complementary Add-ons settings page, and will soon be deprecated (ie. removed from the WordPress.org and WPSSO.com websites).
As always, if you have any questions or comments, you can open a ticket on our Premium support site.

Blogs Are an Outlet for Self Expression
Pursuing a blog is a creative endeavor that provides many benefits. I can’t quite explain it, but we all have the need to express ourselves. Writing is a useful way of doing this. Writing down your thoughts in an ordered way, in the form of blog posts, helps you to get clear on things.

Efficient Ways Of Working From Home During COVID-19 - WPDeveloper

Community | wpdeveloper.net | 13 days ago

Working remotely might sound fun and in a world without pandemic COVID-19, trust me, it really is. Especially if you are working in a tech company, it’s a lot easier and somewhat more productive if you could follow the golden rules. From the experience of working in a few leading distributed tech companies, I always felt an urge to share my experience and some tips to efficiently manage the working schedule while no one was watching over your shoulder. But it didn’t happen!
I am writing this on different circumstances while an unfortunate pandemic Corona Virus is forcing many businesses to implement remote work within a very short time as a potential solution to stop the spread of the infectious disease.
At WPDeveloper, we have also started ‘work from home’ for our employees to help the stem of the spread of COVID-19. To keep the world economy going, we need to prepare ourselves and help the companies to carry on their regular work schedule as much as possible. A little preparation can go a long way to make your ‘work from home’ adventure great. Also, it could be a life-changing experience for you and help you to be more focused, organized and self-sufficient.

How to Find Freelance Writing Jobs: 25 Methods You Can Use Today

Community | codeinwp.com | 24 days ago

In other words, there is a lot of money to go around; you just have to know where to find the better paying jobs. How much can you earn doing freelance writing jobs?
The following are the typical rates for freelance writing work according to the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA), the most authoritative source on freelancing rates:
According to the EFA, you can expect to earn between $40 and $100 per hour or between 20 cents and $2 per word for freelance writing jobs depending on the nature of the writing. Of course, some freelance writers earn much more, and some earn much less, but this is often determined by a number of key factors such as:
I generally charge $0.30 to $0.40 per word (or about $300 to $400 per 1,000 words article), or more depending on the nature of the project. I used to struggle to charge $50 per article, until veteran freelance writer Carol Tice once told me, point blank, during one of our discussions that I was undercharging and asked me to increase my rate. I immediately doubled my rate for new clients and they paid. I did that again for the next ones and they paid as well.
This made me realize a key fact: you’re often worth as much as you’re

The Importance of Images on Your Coming Soon Page

Images play big part in the web design world and can turn a website from just a bunch of text to something that displays originality, creativity, and brand identity.

The Importance of Images on Your Coming Soon Page

Community | resizemyimg.com | 3 days ago

Images are very powerful tools for a lot of reasons. Firstly, humans are, by nature, visual learners, so using images is the best way to establish good and clear communication with them. Secondly, unlike text, images can cross language barriers and can transfer a message easily to anyone regardless of their native language or cultural background. These aren’t some groundbreaking statements, but rather common knowledge and the reason why we use images for a wide range of purposes like advertising, educating, artistic expression, and so on. Images play a big part in the web design world and can turn a website from just a bunch of text to something that displays originality, creativity, and brand identity.
One specific type of web page relies heavily on images, and that type is coming soon pages. Since coming soon pages are just a “trailer” of what is to come, they usually don’t contain a lot of content, just some crucial information about the launch of the website and a few conversion tools here and there. For that reason, when a coming soon page is being designed, choosing the images that will be used on it, should be done with a lot of thought and care and at

The dilemma: maintained plugins, security issues and the repository

CAUTION! HOT TOPIC! Should maintained WordPress plugins be withdrawn from the repository when a security issue is reported? Is such approach really helping or does it make things worse?

The dilemma: maintained plugins, security issues and the repository

Community | wpwhitesecurity.com | 23 days ago

On 27th February 2020, at 9:34PM (CET) we received an email notifying us that our plugin WP Security Audit Log was “temporarily withdrawn from the WordPress.org Plugin directory due to an exploit”. We submitted a fix on Friday, 28th February 2020, at 4:08PM. It only took us 16.5 hours to release the fix. We would have fixed the issue much earlier if this happened during our normal working hours (we are based in Europe), because we have a very good support response time (reference).
Our plugin was reinstated on Monday 2nd March 2020 at 1:00PM. That is 69 hours after we submitted the fix. It is important to note that it took the team so long to reinstate the plugin because of the weekend.
Why am I writing this?
I’d like to point out that I do believe that non-maintained plugins that have security issues should be suspended from the WordPress repository. Also, I have massive respect for the work that the volunteers at the plugin reviews team do, and I also take full responsibility for the reported security issue.
However, I do believe that reported security issues in maintained plugins might be handled better. Because of the way they are handled at the moment, the plugin’s

Important notice: WordCamp Europe postponed

Very sad news for many and it is unfortunate. However, it is also understandable. Kudos to the organizers for taking such a big decision.

Important notice: WordCamp Europe postponed

WordCamp Europe 2020 in Porto has been postponed due to the ongoing and increasing uncertainty of the impact of COVID-19. We’d like to explain to you what this means. It is with heavy hearts that we announce WordCamp Europe will be postponed until 2021.
The decision to postpone WCEU 2020 was not made lightly, as each member of the organising team is deeply invested in the event, but it was made collectively.
As a community, we have decided, after carefully monitoring the international situation, the advice of organisations such as the World Health Organization and WordPress Community Support (aka WordCamp Central), and the concerns of our community, that the in-person event we envisioned — a diverse, inclusive, safe, fun, and educational event — is impossible, given the current circumstances.
Ticket refunds
All paid WCEU 2020 tickets will be refunded automatically through the same payment method used to purchase the ticket. You do not need to request a refund manually.
It may take up to 15 days for the refund to appear in your account, depending on your bank. Please note that if you purchased your ticket via PayPal more than 180 days ago, it may take more time to refund

WFH, or Working From Home, is now something we are all getting to grips with.

Especially, if you’re a parent. Skip ahead to our resources:
The advantage of living in these times, is that we have the ability to work and communicate from home. If you have the internet and a computer, you essentially have everything you need to conduct business as usual. But for one thing, you need the right tools to do this. And for another, you have to deal with the challenges that come with your new workplace (like children, or just convincing yourself to get up in the morning).
So we’ve put together a comprehensive list of resources, tips and strategies to help you through this time. At FooPlugins, we have a remote team, so some of these tips are based on experience. But we’ve also found plenty of other useful ideas and tools that could help you out.

A few things we can do to help our communities during the COVID-19 emergency

Community | wpgeodirectory.com | 15 days ago

We can all help stop COVID-19 and if you are not a health care professional, the best way to do it is to stay at home. At AyeCde we never had a central office, we all work remotely, and staying at home for us is just another day at the office.
It can be done and you should do an effort to make it the new normal for you too. At least until this emergency is over.
But what else can we do to help? As web and directories developers, there are a few things that we can do to help our communities.
Help spreading the correct information and not the virus
Every country, region, city, town, every single location has its own procedures to manage this emergency.
If you have a local directory, make sure to provide the right information for your local population and tourists.
Information about what people should and shouldn’t be doing during a complete shutdown is vital.
Especially about what to do in case someone suspects that they have contracted the virus. Who to call and or where to go and not to go.
Help your local businesses to survive
With cities in partial or complete shutdowns, local businesses may have a hard time surviving.
As a directory developer, they are all potentially your

A Better, Cleaner Way to Render HTML with JavaScript

Community | webdevstudios.com | Dec. 12, 2019

As a team of WordPress developers, we often stumble upon a task where we need to request a set of data using AJAX and render it to the browser. Most of the the time we do it like this:
It works. However, it’s difficult to maintain this code, and most of the time, the HTML markup we need to use is much more complex than the example above. As more updates and changes occur in the markup, we find it increasingly difficult to work with this code.
Enter wp.template
If you are familiar with Underscore.js or {{ mustache }}, wp.template is an underscore-based JavaScript templating helper shipped with WordPress.
So, how do we use it?
Create and render your HTML markup template
<# _.forEach( data, function ( post ) { #>
Just with this, we can immediately see how easy it is to maintain our HTML markup.
1. It is important that the HTML markup template is wrapped with <script type=“text/html” id=“tmpl-[TEMPLATE-NAME]”></script>.
2. The id needs to be prefixed with tmpl-.
3. data is the variable passed to the template from the JavaScript. You’ll see this shortly.
4. JavaScript logic goes inside <# #>.
5. <# _.forEach() #> is an Underscore

14 Best WooCommerce plugins for 2020+

Community | blog.weglot.com | Feb. 27, 2020

Setting up an online store isn’t easy and things can become even more complicated when: You’re doing business in a country where people speak a language other than English
You have to keep the country’s tax requirements in mind (Think: EU VAT)
You want to offer shipping, returns, and refund options to international customers
As a WooCommerce store owner, you’ll likely have to cater to international customers as you grow your business and ecommerce site. You have to consider things like:
Which language you’ll publish content in
Which currencies you’ll support for payments
How you’ll handle tax rates
