145 – Should we use templates more?

Should we use templates more? - WP Builds WordPress podcast

Times have changed… It used to be that creating websites was really tedious. It took hours to get anything to go where you wanted it. Along came WordPress themes and life got a little easier, well sometimes, and then we got Page Builders with their rows and modules. Now you can get templates for just about anything and can have sites built in a matter of hours, but should we do it this way? Should we be using other people’s templates or should we be doing all this from the group up? Perhaps there is a middle way? Tweaking what you find so that the internet does not all look the same! Join us to find out what we think…

106 – With the right tools and guidance, anyone can design a great site with Mor Cohen

106 - With the right tools and guidance, anyone can design a great site with Mor Cohen

This week we have Mor Cohen on from Washington State in America and she’s with us because she has a new course that she’s launching called “The GeneratePress and Elementor Design Course”. This course is designed for people like me, and when I say that it’s unlikely that you need this course as much as I do because I have the design skills of a peanut! I can see what makes a design good, and I can appreciate a good design, but I cannot seem to be able to make a good design. That stuff is hard, or so I thought. Mor thinks otherwise!

99 – Help your clients to help you with a Client Portal – Laura Elizabeth explains

99 - Help your clients to help you with a Client Portal - Laura Elizabeth explains

Today, we get to meet Laura Elizabeth. She’s a designer turned plugin creator that has some good ideas for you! Like I say, she’s a designer and her latest product, Client Portal, is a great way to help you and your clients to stay on the same page. If you build WordPress websites for clients, then I think that you’ll know this problem… you get out of sync with your clients and all the communication seems to go all over the place. Some people want you to send them email, others would rather that you use Slack or Dropbox or Google Drive or some other system that you’ve never heard of! The long and the short of it is that you’ve got many clients all needing you to communicate with them in a variety of ways and Client Portal makes that process much easier!

77 - UI That Rocks / Understanding Gestalt design principles with Piccia Neri

I don’t know much about design. I’m one of those people who knows what they like when they see it. So I’m basically your worst client! Luckily there are people out there who do understand design. They think about it deeply and understand why some combinations of colours and shapes work well (good designers) and others don’t (me and turnips). Piccia Neri is one such person; she’s good at design and understanding design. Coming from a background in art history she moved over to the web and has been applying her knowledge to web design ever since.

73 – Why Smart Slider 3 might make you think about using sliders all over again

Why Smart Slider 3 might make you think about using sliders all over again

This week we have Daniel David on the show talking about his plugin, Smart Slider 3. If you have not used a slider on any of your WordPress website projects, then it might be time to have another look, because, these things are pretty amazing these days. Smart Slider 3 does not just slide things in from one side of the screen to the other in fun ways, oh my goodness no, it does a whole lot more than that! Smart Slider 3 is a drag and drop slider builder that you can use in many, many ways; some of them unexpectedly cool. Think Page Builder for only sliders!
