It’s been an insane week – and it’s been nothing short of a miracle. Finishing our Epic Gaming Mural, Holding our Jelly Event, organizing and finishing out WordCamp Atlanta (and the VIP after party), launching a Kickstarter Campaign, and managing all the other “normal” things in life – yikes, it’s just been insanity! We’ve been getting a few hours of sleep each night, if we’re lucky. As you can see, Chris is trying to recover… at 8:00am in the morning. But without further ado, here you go:
WooThemes just released WooCommerce 2.0, their ever popular eCommerce plugin for WordPress. They added a variety of new features in the new version ranging from improved security (approved by Sucuri) to advanced inventory management. All of these features make WordPress a more viable candidate as a platform to develop a fully-featured eCommerce site. As a result, I want to take a personal look at it and give you my thoughts from on some of the major features and why it may be time to take a serious look at it, if you already haven’t.
Hope you guys had a great week! It’s already into March, can you believe it? We’re nearly 25% of the way through 2013. Someone pinch me, seriously, because it’s moving way too fast. Here’s your weekly rundown of what you may have missed that wasn’t explicitly covered here on WP Daily. Let us know if we missed anything or if we need to subscribe to a particular blog and what not! I think you should at least take a look at #3, $22, #24, and #26. Those are must-reads, especially #24 on remote management.
The bar is continuing to be raised this year as more and more players are jumping into the managed WordPress hosting space – heck, we even shared this morning about one that launched for NPOs and Churches! But the hosting business is a tricky one and it’s an industry that we at WP Daily are paying close attention to because it’s been scooped that even we are getting into the business (I share some candid thoughts in two recent interviews as well here, around minute 23 and here near the very end). I don’t believe that we’ll be competing as directly […]
It’s been a relative “light” week as I look back on the past 7 days – although we’ve had a record amount of posts published this past week the other sources of news articles has been relatively small. And when I say “small” I don’t mean small-small as there’s always a lot going on. Just compared to the previous week I suppose. I’m rambling. In anycase, here are some great articles that you may have missed that we didn’t cover – and don’t forget to enter into our BlogDroid Giveaway!
Another crazy week this week, right? I feel like there’s a never-ending flood of great content that’s being created about WordPress and related topics of conversation. It makes our jobs incredible easy and incredibly difficult at times because we have to identify the topics that we want to cover more fully and the ones that we can only point to and say “Go check this out!” In anycase, here’s your weekly roundup of conversations that you may have missed:
Whew. Another week, come and gone. It’s getting faster it seems, right? I mean, it’s already February! Where did the first month go and how are we almost half-way through the second? There have been a lot of great conversations and great content being shared all over the place and we couldn’t possibly have gotten to it all – so in our typical fashion, here’s our Weekend Roundup:
Wow. Another crazy week in the land of WordPress and we’ve been at the very center of some big conversations. It’s been a fantastic experience to see the community pull out all the stops to support each other around licensing and the GPL. With Collis Ta’eed’s response in regards to Envato’s stance as well as a much more clear look at the differences between Automattic and the WordPress Foundation things are starting to settle and we’re starting to get back to business as usual. Actually, let’s be honest – it’s always been business as usual and most of us haven’t lost […]
Today we’re spending a bit of time with Austin Gunter, the Brand Ambassador of WP Engine and all-around tweet addict. He’s been around here on WP Daily a few times and is constantly cooking up new ideas to share his passion for WordPress and his company. Pretty neat gig if you ask me! We’re stoked to learn more about him and what he’s been up to as a WPOI (Word Person of Interest):
WP Engine has just shared that it’s not longer accepting Paypal as a payment for billing and moving forward with another implementation. Unfortunately, PayPal has become an obstacle to our commitment to a hassle-free customer experience for you, and to keep up with this commitment, we’ve unfortunately had to stop accepting payment via PayPal. As with these situations, it’s never one single thing, but a stream of problems that affected various customers over an extended period of time. The problems ranged from failed transactions, which is bad, to duplicate transactions that billed customers twice, which is REALLY BAD. The time it took […]
