Tailor Page Builder Under New Management – Tailor: Free Page Builder – Medium

Tailor Page Builder Under New Management Tailor was launched by Andrew Worsfold in April 2016. Since then a lot of work has gone into it, resulting in many updates and new features. Currently Tailor has three extensions (all free) which each add further functionality and features. It has been acknowledged by some key players in the WordPress community and have received a lot of positive feedback overall.
Tailor needs more time and efforts!
Until now Andrew has been doing all of the work on Tailor, but moving forward Tailor needs more time, money and a bigger team to manage it. As a result of other commitments, Andrew has not been able to maintain the rapid pace of development that he desires (and the plugin demands), which is why the team at Enclavely has taken over. They will be dedicated to delivering bug fixes and new features, ensuring that Tailor has a bright future.
Who is the new management?
Tailor has been acquired by Enclavely, inc. Enclavely is a startup founded by two experienced and skilled friends Munir Kamal and Essa Mamdani. Both were early adopters of Tailor and have been supporting Tailor since the beginning. They’ve got the necessary skills and experience needed

Does your solution solve the right problem? – Inside Intercom

The most productive engineers I’ve ever worked with aren’t the engineers who pull all-nighters or clock in 80 hour work weeks. Nor are they the engineers who can effortlessly craft an elegant five lines of x86 assembly to succinctly and efficiently solve a problem. They are the engineers who always seem to be solving the right problem in the first place. If the mythical 10x engineer really does exist, it’s the engineer who is 10 times more likely to solve the right problem.
While we might always set out with the best of intentions to solve the right problem as engineers, there are many mistakes we can make that will send us in the wrong direction.
What solving the wrong problem looks like
Imagine you’re working for Silicon Valley’s newest, hottest unicorn start up. Your job is to build the best new to-do product since man first put pen to paper and the bullet point list emerged. The great visionary of the company, the VP of Product, walks up to you and tells you that it’s time. You’re going to build the killer new feature: notifications on your phone to remind you to tackle a task on your to-do list.
The idea comes to you straight away. “Let’s

How to Become a WordPress Core Contributor With One Line of Code

[To better illustrate our core value of community service, we are sharing an internal post from Senior Front End Engineer Derrick Koo, who recently made his first code contribution to the WordPress project. We hope his story encourages more people who are “on the fence” about contributing to take the plunge and start giving back to the WordPress community. —Jake Goldman, President & Founder] Contributing code to WordPress Core can be intimidating for a first-timer. With thousands of tickets out there, it can be hard to know where to begin. With development out in the open, it takes a lot of courage to submit a first WordPress patch.
For the benefit of new and aspiring contributors, I’m sharing my experience making my first code contribution to WordPress. Starting with little knowledge of the Core contribution process, I embarked on a journey that resulted in one line of CSS, and my first Core props.

One day, WordPress lead developer (and fellow 10upper) Helen Hou-Sandí asked me to investigate a relatively straightforward browser bug in the Twenty Seventeen theme.
Tickets are just bug reports (or potential enhancements) in the WordPress

Why We Use Google’s G Suite For Email

Last week I told you about the tools we use to run our business, and this week, I’m going to go in-depth to tell you all about G Suite and why we use it as the communication backbone for our business. G Suite has gone through a bit of an identity crisis over the years. The name has changed several times. However, the product remains rock solid even if the marketing team at Google struggles to make up their mind.
I’m not going to show you how to setup and use G Suite in this blog post. I’m going to explain why we use G Suite instead of the many alternatives out there. Check out our guide for configuring the proper Gmail SMTP settings if you’re looking for more of a technical guide.
Not a Bandwagon Decision
First, I feel it’s important you know that we don’t use G Suite because “that’s what everyone uses”. We looked into all sorts of email systems before deciding on G Suite five years ago, and ultimately landed on it for a number of reasons that we’ll get into below.
We’re a company that’s slow to drink the Kool-aid for things that are hip and new. We know that software impacts people so we really try and be deliberate

Meet Greg Schoppe: The Developer Who’s Taking on Gutenberg

Within the WordPress community, it’s been hard to ignore all of the hype surrounding Gutenberg – the new content editor being developed for the world’s most used CMS. Currently available in plugin form and scheduled for inclusion in WordPress 5.0, the first thing you notice about this newfangled way of creating a page or post is that it provides a very different experience from what we’re used to. Needless to say, the reaction has been mixed. That’s to be expected whenever such a dramatic change is made to a venerable piece of software like WordPress. With so many designers and developers making a living off of working their magic with it, there’s no way something this big was going to go unnoticed.
The whole situation has already been written about ad nauseam, but we wanted to bring the perspective of someone who brings specific concerns to the table. Today, we’ll introduce you to one developer whose commentary touched a nerve within the community, along with some within the WordPress development team.
His name is Greg Schoppe, a Vermont-based WordPress developer. His post, entitled “You called it Gutenberg for a Reason.. That Doesn’t

Top 5 WordPress SEO Trends for 2017

Google search algorithm can be changed quicker (around 500 times per year) than you write blog posts, voice search trend is growing faster than you realize it actually exists, paid ads may decrease trustful relationships with your prospects. These are the realities of SEO and if you take a good care of your WordPress website from this perspective, check out this post to find out more about core SEO trends in 2017. Let’s at first define the main conceptual pathways around the trends:
Paid ads are not your best friends. As well as aggressive or black-hat SEO techniques may lead to breaking up your relations with search engines, markers like “Ads” or “Sponsored” next to the link to your website are lowering down clicking rates. People don’t trust popularity gained through a payment and continue searching for organic results.
Search engine optimization is not a plugin, but a process. So, if you want to get all the work done with any popular WordPress SEO plugin only, it’s not going to work. Of course, Yoast SEO or All-In-One SEO Pack are huge reliable helpers, but you should spend more time and use more tools to properly analyze and improve the
