Easy life... store your layouts in the cloud with Andrew Palmer - WP Builds WordPress podcast

You’ve been using a Page Builder to design your WordPress websites and life is great. But it could be better. The Page Builder Cloud plugin allows you to save your layouts to the cloud and reuse them on whatever website you want. So you can start to build your own library of layouts and they’re right there, waiting to be deployed and save you a heap of time.

Feeling insecure about security (Part 1) - WP Builds WordPress podcast

This is the first in a two part podcast about WordPress and security. In this episode we go over all of the potential problems that you might encounter with your WordPress website.

139 – A better way to manage your media library with Stuart Brameld

A better way to manage your media library with Stuart Brameld - WP Builds WordPress podcast

If you’ve been using WordPress any length of time, you’ll have run into the frustrations that the Media Library can present. It’s a pretty decent UI, but it’s not as good as services that we’re using such as Google Drive or Dropbox. WP Media Manager aims to fix that. Not only does it look great but it stores all of your assets in Amazon S3 or Microsoft Azure with all of the benefits that this brings… highly scalable, secure, permissions based. I think that this plugin is certainly worth a look… PS… Sorry about the poor audio this week!

138 – Are we happy with how we manage tasks?

Are we happy with how we manage tasks? - WP Builds WordPress podcast

Today, the podcast talks about tasks. Not so much the tasks themselves, but more the way that we approach them. We discuss the way that different people have the ability to move happily from task to task, whilst other people need to complete one task before they can move onto another one. I guess that there’s no ‘right’ way to accomplish tasks, but it’s interesting to see whether or not we think that other people’s approaches are batter than our own. It’s a fun episode for sure!

Standing up to clients - WP Builds WordPress podcast

In this episode David and I talk about the interactions which we have with clients. Most of the time (I hope) we have good relations with our clients. They want to work with you and you want to work with them… but this does not mean that you’re always going to see eye to eye with them. From time to time you’re going to have to face up to a client who is not wanting to work with your processes and it not willing to be flexible. What do we do…?

132 – Working when there are other things to do

Working when there are other things to do - WP Builds WordPress Podcast

So this episode is a little bit of a departure for us, in that it’s much more personal than usual, and has very little to do with WordPress, so forgive us! When we decided to cover this topic, I (Nathan) was thinking that we’d be talking about the things in life my non-work life that I have to do, sometimes in opposition to my work life.
