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

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.

76 - How to build and manage a successful plugin business with Sujay Pawar

In this episode we get to chat to Sujay Pawar, somewhat of a rising star of the WordPress world.

Shall I just list them out for you, so that you can say, “Yes, I’ve heard of those,” at the end? The Astra Theme, Ultimate Addons for Beaver Builder, Ultimate Addons for Elementor, Convert Pro, Schema Pro, WP Portfolio and actually there were a few more along the way too!

75 - ACF... Elliot Condon tells us all about his enormously cool plugin

You discovered WordPress a while back and you thought, “this is great, but I need more fields”. Admit it, that’s exactly what you said isn’t it? Well Elliot Condon heard your cry and went out and built ACF (Advanced Custom Fields) for you. It’s about the most useful thing that you could add to WordPress other than, say, the Pro version of ACF, which is even better! You get heaps of new fields to play with and turn WordPress into something that is more CMS than blog platform! We find out all about ACF; it’s past, present and future, and we also find out about Elliot and what kind of a nice chap he is.

74 – Let’s try to understand the GPL license shall we? With Jonathan Bossenger

Let's try to understand the GPL license shall we? With Jonathan Bossenger

Way back in September 2017, we did an episode called “Build it out of love. The morality of GPL licenses“. In this episode David an I (as is our custom) spoke at great length with almost zero understand of the subject matter. I’m happy to say that most of you just tut and move on, but one or two of you are really, really listening and decide to question our proclamations! Jonathan Bossenger is such a person and he was having none of it! He decided that you guys actually needed to know real facts about The GPL and so he got in touch. You of course understand that I’m joking? He was very nice and thoughtful and considerate; which is more than we deserve!

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!
