247 – ‘T’ is for Themes

WordPress themes are crucial, you have to have one, but will they continue to be so in an era of Full Site Editing? We talk on the podcast today about the WordPress themes that we’ve used over the years. Starting out by being beguiled by themes which could do all-the-things, then moving towards theme frameworks and minimal themes which allowed some basic styling, but then got out of the way of our Page Builder so that we could create headers and footers that way. Which themes do we like and what do we think the future holds with themes appearing to be of less importance in WordPress’ future. Are you exploring new themes? Are you a theme developer worried about the direction of travel? Listen to the podcast and let us know your thoughts…

246 – Building your own social network with the Friends plugin

So you love Facebook and you hate Facebook, you love Twitter and you hate Twitter. You love… You get the idea! If you’re anything like me you have at times questioned how much time you’ve spent trawling through social media. You may even be worried about how much data they’ve been gathering about you, or perhaps thinking about whether or not we’re even able to escape from it all. On the podcast today we’ve got Alex Kirk, and he certainly has been thinking about all of this. So much so in fact that he’s built a social network plugin for WordPress. Listen to the podcast to find out all about it…

245 – ‘S’ is for SEO

So today on the podcast David and Nathan talk about SEO. David certainly knows more about this than Nathan does, but neither of us claim to be experts! It’s a hard subject to ever feel happy about as there’s never an end to it all. Google keeps changing what you need to do and you’re always under a barrage of new information from all over the internet. So in this episode, we just say it as we see it. What do we need to do and what are some of the tools that we’ve used to make our WordPress websites have good SEO and page ranking in the search engines? Go check out the podcast…

244 – ‘R’ is for Resources

There are so many tools that you open up each day to do your job as a WordPress website builder or developer. In fact, I’d go as far as say that if you actually counted up the tools that you use each month, it’s going to be way more that you think. There’s graphics to create, template to conjure up, themes and plugins to discover and implement, emails to send, ways of getting client content… Honestly, the list just goes on and on. Inspired by suggestions from the WP Builds Facebook Group, we decided to put together a podcast highlighting some of the resources you use. There’s some real gems in here… honestly, so go check out the podcast today to find out more…

THE FRESH WP GOODNESS PODCAST

Chopped up like you would chop up a carrot, or perhaps a turnip... but not with a knife, because we, erm... chop things up with our podcast. So, WP Builds is like a big choppy, podcasty knife with lovely colourful hexagons.
