WooCommerce Websites Don’t Just Sit There And Look Pretty

If you are wanting to step into the world of ecommerce, you probably want to look into using WooCommerce web design for your online store. This ecommerce platform is unlike the other ones in many important ways. In short, it makes you happy. It’s no wonder it is trusted all over the world to sell everything from sports lessons to custom-baked treats.

 

There is a reason – or should I say many reasons – that WooCommerce is the most popular platform for building an online store. It gives you an SEO-ready canvas on which you can build, and you also get complete control of your store as well. The features make it easy for you to actually operate an online store, not just have something that looks cool but you don’t know what to do with it. You can carry out bulk uploading of products, track your profit, manage your products, calculate shipping, and all of those other essential functions. Oh yeah, and getting PayPal set up is easy as well.

 

Everyone wants to be able to customize their online store according to their vision and that can happen easily with WooCommerce. You are not limited as far as how many products you can sell and you can build your store according to your vision and what the store needs to succeed. You are able to modify literally everything, so you can really have a unique brand.

 

Online stores are always changing and chances are, you are going to make some changes big and small after initially building your online store. WooCommerce web design has that covered as well. You can easily manage and update your site. Since WooCommerce is a WordPress plugin, you can use the intuitive WordPress backend to manage your website and make changes. Many changes can easily be made with the click of a mouse.

 

In short, a website made with WooCommerce web design doesn’t just sit there and look pretty. It is designed for action, for constant change and improvement, and to be a fully functioning online store that is ready to sell.

New Touches to Twitter This Year

Picture 5-28-2015Just like any other social network, Twitter has been trudging along and updating its features to ensure that it remains competitive and provides its users with the best experience that they can possibly offer. Over the course of this year, Twitter has launched a number of features and services to enhance the overall Twitter experience. Earlier this year, Twitter launched a service for brands and celebrity users called TweetDeck Teams, which is intended to allow multiple people to tweet from a singular account. This service is intended to make it easier for team members to work together on Twitter.

Another service that Twitter launched back in February was an official WordPress plug-in that would allow Twitter to interact smoothly with the popular website and blog development tool. Although many Twitter-related plug-ins had been developed over the years for WordPress, this was the first official one released, intended to make it easier for visitors to tweet WordPress posts, embed tweets, and track ads for those running Twitter Ad campaigns on their WordPress blogs.

Updates to the interface of Twitter itself have also come up from time to time over the course of the year thus far. For instance, Twitter gave users the ability to easily embed Twitter videos on other websites back in March. Then, in April, Twitter began testing targeted advertisements that would appear directly on user profiles, with a ‘Suggested by Twitter’ tag. This is an effort to continue monetizing Twitter and making it profitable, while still being able to provide it to users as a free service.

Featured Content Gallery Passes 50,000 Downloads

fcg_wpBack in January of 2009, iePlexus became the new developers of the Featured Content Gallery WordPress Plugin. We were excited to become part of the WordPress development community and certainly had big plans for the plugin. Since that time, 4 months ago, the Featured Content Gallery has become one of the most popular WordPress plugins to date and has accrued over 50,000 downloads from the WordPress plugin repository. We’ve made significant updates and improvements to the plugin since taking over the reigns, and have created a website, instructional video and support forum dedicated to the plugin. We will continue to manage, maintain and upgrade the plugin so it can continue to be a free, useful application for anyone who wants to utilize it on their WordPress website.

The Featured Content Gallery is a WordPress plugin that creates an automated, rotating image gallery anywhere withing a WordPress site. Based on a MooTools gallery script, the plugin is able to display an image attached to a post or page within a WordPress site and display it automatically wherever the gallery code is entered. The plugin is very popular with many high-quality WordPress themes, including premium WordPress themes from StudioPress, where the FCG is commonly included in new theme releases. It was added to the WordPress repository in February of 2009 and has consistently been one of the most popular plugins, averaging over 500 downloads per day. The Featured Content Gallery plugin page on WordPress has all the information for the plugin, including the download, description, installation, screenshots and more.
