WP-Editor.com review on WP Tavern

Despite the WP Editor project being a work in progress, I found the three plugins that are currently available easy to use without needing a manual to get me started. While many themes provide the same functionality through the use of shortcodes, if a user were to switch themes, those styles would disappear. By using a plugin to add these visual elements, users are safe to switch themes without losing the look of their styled content. These plugins are a solid way to easily add visual punch to otherwise boring text.

WordPress Visual Editor: Page Builder, Shortcode, TinyMCE

Content in a site is the main dish, and creating content in WordPress is simple. WordPress uses TinyMCE as content editor, we can also spice up our content with shortcodes to create complex content layout.

Last month I launch WP-Editor.com. A simpler way to create buttons, boxes, even column in WordPress Visual Editor. It’s still very limited in term of functionality, but it’s amazing to know that we can do this in WordPress default content editor.

How to add “Next Page”/ “Page Break” button in WordPress Editor

In WordPress we can separate post/pages using <!--nextpage-->. It’s hard to remember the tag, and you need to add it using “Text” editor, not visual editor. This is  how you can add “Next Page” or “Page Break” button in Visual Editor, Just like this:

I can zoom and scroll horizontally a lot easier on mobile browser than using regular desktop browser. Why do they make it all one column? Where is the sidebar with all the useful links, popular posts, latest comments, etc. Why something as important as sidebar have to be at the bottom of the page when i can just use my thumb to slide and access the sidebar?

Do your user/visitor really need one column fluid layout responsive design? Do you? 0

Better Responsive Design with `wp_is_mobile`, Why Responsive Design is Not Enough

What is wp_is_mobile ?

wp_is_mobile is a WordPress function to detect user/visitor browser using user agent string. Some might think that this method is like prehistoric era. An era before we have responsive design. Web developer use user agent string to serve different website content to mobile user or redirect to mobile site, something like m.website.com.

So why WordPress, a CMS of the future have this function? Why WordPress still need this and use this function all across admin pages?

What Responsive Design Cannot Do

Responsive design is awesome, we can style based on browser width so the design can be useful and better for user using any device.
