Fresh WP Goodness...

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.

Our latest episodes...

35 – Styling your CSS in WordPress with Sebastian Webb from Microthemer

If you’re anything like me you don’t really like styling sites. Well, enter Sebastian web from Microthemer who has a pretty nice way of speeding things up for us all. We’ve all grown accustomed to page builders so why not have a WordPress interface to speed up the process of writing CSS? Microthemer does that!

34 – Why Pods and Beaver Themer are jolly good together, with Bernhard Gronau

Today we are talking about Pods and Beaver Themer with Bernhard Gronau. Where to start? Pod is a free open source plugin available on the WP repository that allows us to easily create Custom Post Types (CPTs) and Custom Fields in WordPress.

33 – Getting content from your client with James Rose

In this episode of the WP Builds podcast we have a slightly different take from the usual WP related content, because this week, we’re talking to James Rose form Content Snare, which has no connection to WordPress at all! However, fear not, all is not lost because this has a great deal to do with your web design and development business.

32 – Tom Usborne from GeneratePress

This is an episode that I really wanted to do. Generate Press is a WordPress theme that I’ve been using for quite a while now, and it’s my theme of choice. The options that it presents are powerful and yet the theme itself if very lightweight. Hooks galore, tasteful defaults, in short a great WordPress theme.

31 – What the heck are WooCommerce doing?

Today we had a carefully considered and mature debate about the removal of the 50% yearly discount on Woocommerce extensions. We also recorded today’s podcast which … erm… is not entirely like that. LISTENER DISCRETION IS STRONGLY ADVISED. That’s not because we use rude words… Nah, it’s simply that no-one can resist a warning and we don’t have an interesting guest for you this week.

30 – Jack McConnell from Made with Fuel

Today we have the hugely talented, young and successful Jack McConnell from Made with Fuel on the show.

Made with Fuel is one-man WordPress web design and development agency based in Bath in the UK that focus on Websites, Online Stores and Membership Sites.

He also makes plugins like Better Notifications for WordPress among others. In this episode he shares his experience of that.

29 – Being an online marketing consultant with Jim Galiano

How do we introduce Jim Galiano? Galiano (you need to say that like you’re Robert De Niro), New Yorker accent, grandfather in the boxing business, connections with entertainers. We know what you’re thinking… mafia support… Jim is an online consultant and author who started years ago and has loads to share.

28 – How to stay relevant in WordPress with Eric Hamm

This theme then transitioned into the very popular Dynamik Website Builder (a customizable Child theme for the Genesis Framework) and Genesis Extender (a tool to help customize other Genesis Child theme). “Yeah dude now we’re talking… Frameworks are cosmic!”. Years of blissful happiness ensued.

27 – The WP community with Paul Lacey

Today we rejoice! We have that nice Paul Lacey with us! We are in the WordPress Community! Let’s hold hands and sing and dance around the podcasty campfire… Ah, no, no wait, that’s too disturbing! In truth, this episode is about Paul’s 10 plus year journey working with WordPress.

26 – Turning your web design business around with Chantal Edouard-Betsy

Chantal, from 1daywebs, turned her website design business away from the tedium long drawn out projects to the heart fluttering thrills of one day web builds. She’s never looked back. D’ya fancy some of that too?

25 – Beaver Themer with Justin Busa and Robby McCullough

Today we welcome back Robby and Justin from Beaver Builder. The last time they joined us was for our Christmas special. This time it just feels like Christmas. If you didn’t know already the Beaver Builder team have just released their Beaver Themer extension.

24 – We have a plugin idea, how do we get customers?

This week we talk to not one, but two lovely developers (Nathan Tyler and Natalie MacLees) from California who have a really interesting take on launching their plugin. Their new plugin, Simply Schedule Appointments is launching BEFORE it’s ready!

I travel, help people make websites and bang on about Beaver Builder on YouTube. I got a silver badge for swimming aged 11.

The designer in me says there should be more words here.
