It's a fact: the standard Wordpress commenting feature is one of the most powerful tools that can help you to build engagement.It doesn't require a complex learning curve, it can be easily improved (in many different ways), and more importantly, will help you to bring the users back and keep them engaged.Still, the commenting feature is also one of the most neglected Wordpress features ...As I already mentioned in one of my previous tutorials, while we are talking about complex sales funnels, a

One of my "favorite" clients recently decided to change his theme (following my recommendation) ... And believe it or not, he decided to replace his paid third-party theme with a free Wordpress theme.It may sound strange, but it's a very common scenario ... Why? Because a paid theme is not necessarily better than a free one. In fact, the price it's (should be) a secondary factor ... There are many other - a lot more important - factors to consider when you are choosing a new theme. You can read

Once again, I received another very interesting question from one of my clients.He was looking for a simple and safe method of adding a so-called AMA (Ask Me Anything) section to his Wordpress website.Of course, there is a solution, but let's start with the term itself ... Let's see what is Ask Me Anything (Anonymously)?Well, the name is very straightforward ... An AMA section allows visitors to ask you questions anonymously. And of course, you'll be able to answer those questions :)If you are

Recently I received another interesting question from one of my clients.He was looking for a simple method of exporting (saving) all his Wordpress URLs into a standalone file using a common file format.Needless to say, there is a solution.But let's start with the actual question ... Why would you export all your Wordpress URLs into a separate, standalone file?As we all know, Wordpress comes with native tools that will allow you to export and import your content:However, sometimes you'll want to

A few days ago I stumbled upon another unique and useful plugin ...A plugin that will allow you to create automated site screenshots on your Wordpress website.Yes, I know, there are many easy-to-use screen capture tools out there ...But I also know that I'm spending a LOT of time to capture manually - and edit - all those screenshots for my tutorials, posts, etc. I've even made a test ... Yesterday, it took me 92 minutes to create, edit and upload all my screenshots on my coaching site ... And

Recently I received another interesting question from one of my clients.She was looking for a simple and safe method of displaying additional navigation menus in her posts ... In my opinion, it's a really cool idea ...But let's start with the basics ...By default, the Wordpress theme is responsible for handling and displaying the navigation menus. Yes, we can create as many navigation menus as we want in our admin area, but ultimately, the active theme defines where and how those navigation men

It's a well-known fact: keeping your website updated is extremely important.As a result, we are constantly bombarded with periodical new updates released for core Wordpress files, themes, plugins, etc.And that's a good thing ... This is how we get the latest fixes, the newest features, etc ...The concept is very simple: by default, Wordpress will automatically update itself every single time when a new minor release or a security update becomes available, but for major Wordpress releases, theme

Recently I received another interesting question from one of my clients. He was looking for a simple and safe method of customizing his theme with various CSS customization codes, and he encountered a major stumbling block: he was unable to find the corresponding theme files.And let's face it, that's a very common issue ... If you are a beginner or a regular user and you want to customize your theme, you'll have to learn which template file(s) to edit in order to get the desired results.But le

A few days ago I stumbled upon a unique and very useful plugin ...A plugin that will allow you to easily locate and edit specific posts, pages, post types, and media elements.I know ... At first blush that sounds pretty boring ... The default Wordpress admin area comes with a simple, well-organized and easy to use layout ... We have separate menu items for posts and pages, and we can easily access the full list with any content pieces created and listed under these two post types.But think it o

The animated GIF files will allow you to add a completely new dimension via animated reactions. They are fun and highly engaging ...And it's a rock-solid fact: animated GIFs are a proven way to boost traffic and increase session duration (time on site). More than that, posts with animated GIFs are more likely to be shared and become viral.This is why they are so popular ...The problem? Creating your own GIFs can be very time-consuming ... Finding relevant, topic-related GIFs isn't easy at all .
