Creative WordPress Archive Pages – Posts in Grids

I use “Snazzy” Archives (wp.org page) and you can view mine but it is more interesting when you go back in time to view months where I have more posts. It has not been updated in a while but it still works great. Another great option is the JetPack Infinite Scroll + Masonry and some detailed notes on making a […]

Alternatives to Hello Bar: WordPress Notification Bar Plugins

Hello Bar is a SaaS which charges based on the number of clicks the bar receives. If your bar receives 7,500 clicks per month, HelloBar would cost you $50/month. It’s a great service and includes it’s own analytics but many sites will benefit from a simpler option without ongoing fees. Foobar ($14) Foobar is my favorite […]

Akismet Error Code #10003

This is a pretty new development. Akismet is not free anymore – but they do have a free version for “personal” use (well, it’s listed as “pay what you want”). If you see this error then don’t panic. For that matter, in general, don’t panic. I think for now you can leave things as-is and my guess […]

April’s war on WordPress security

There is a massive worldwide “brute force” attack going on and servers far and wide are experiencing slowdowns and lockouts.

GigPress vs “All in one event calendar”

  AI1EC has many more features than GigPress—so I’ll start with a list of the advantages of  the “All in one event calendar” (aka AI1EC) vs GigPress: More layouts: gigpress has just a list view; AI1EC has poster board and many more (daily, weekly, monthly and list/agenda) and allows user to switch between them Categories: in any layout […]

Gravity Forms for Ecommerce with tax and shipping options

I love Gravity Forms. It’s the best form building tool for WordPress and now it offers a new feature that allows more complex calculations between fields. Combine that with the PayPal Payments Pro and you have a really fast, simple and powerful ecommerce option for those times when a full WordPress ecommerce system/plugin is not […]

WordPress security plugins: Wordfence

Anyone who has had their site hacked or blacklisted knows how important it is to stay on top of WordPress Security. Yes, you should use the lastest versions of WordPress core and for the most part the latest version of plugins. But of course incompatibilities arise so be careful when updating.

Crafty Cart WPEC theme

Crafty Cart was a great free WPEC (WordPress e-Commerce plugin) theme that I customized for a couple sites. But the developers seem to have disappeared so I’ve moved on to other WordPress ecommerce starter themes like those from Storefront Themes. What I like about Crafty Cart is the playful design. It also features: Simple product […]
