“Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start writing!”
If you’re a developer working with WordPress, you’re probably used to see the Hello World! post quite often, since it’s the only post which comes with a fresh new WordPress install. This is my Hello World! post.
My name is Madalin Tudose and I`m a web developer. I build HTML Templates and WordPress Themes which are eventually released on ThemeForest under the DeliciousThemes brand. In other words, Welcome to DeliciousThemes! – my playground; and my business; and my blog.
Personally, I’ve always enjoyed rich user experiences on the web where I could see how much effort creating something must have taken. The minimalist trend was never entirely my thing, although I don’t have a reasonable explanation for this. It’s just my own take on web design.
But rich user experiences are not about building 100%-Flash powered sites anymore. In this day and age, the results (as in monetary results) are what matters most for almost all websites, and having something that’s visually attractive is only #2 or #3 on the list.
Internet is a necessity nowadays to most of us and is quite interesting how it plays a vital role of influence to our lives, mirrored somehow in the society. Everyday people surf internet, read news online, publish things, etc. and many of them are even webmasters. But when people doesn`t take necessary precautions to keep their website secure, this becomes a problem, especially if they don’t have an updated backup ready to be used.
Websites built on WordPress, a free and open blogging tool and a content management system, can be vulnerable to different security issues; the truth is that there are hackers out there who break WordPress websites everyday. As internet users, we`re in a continuous search of ways for an easy and hassle free experience. In order to keep WordPress secure here are 9 easy steps you can follow in minutes!
It`s time for a new giveaway on DeliciousThemes! We partnered with ElegantThemes to reward 3 lucky readers with a Developer ElegantThemes Membership available for a whole year. Because of the ease of use and advanced features, Premium WordPress themes are the first choice for many of us when it comes to building a website.
The advantageous price-quality ratio of a WordPress theme and the fast WordPress installing process convince people to switch from hiring a web design company to actually doing the job by themselves. Building a website on WordPress is such an easy and user-oriented task that you don`t need any coding knowledge to do it.
Day by day, WordPress themes become more and more powerful. There`s not one day that goes by without a few tens of thousands of WordPress installs, without a WordPress theme or plugin release or without so many countless user blog postings.
Developing for WordPress became a lifestyle for many web designers and that`s a fact which can be noticed in the quality of themes we see nowadays. Top notch designs which follow and recently, set new trends, combined with powerful custom PHP frameworks are the recipe for success and fame for many WordPress enthusiasts.
Premium WordPress themes are powerful. They are designed following the hottest trends and packed with all the features you need to present yourself with style and professionalism. Today you can find a WordPress theme for any niche or business. Whether you just want to showcase your work, present an online application or begin an online crowd funding startup(yep, that`s right!), there are viable solutions for all these things. You just have to know where to look!
What`s the difference between free and premium WordPress themes? The premium theme does more than you could ever imagine. You don`t have to believe me; it`s just what I`ve learned from working with a bunch of awesome themes. But you have to believe me when I say that a WordPress theme can set your website in minutes, because this is true since WordPress was released a few years ago.
But what is a WordPress theme for a website without a great design? This year`s web design trends are more than interesting: metro style designs, bold and big fonts, one-page websites, grid layouts, all built with mobile experience in mind.
The industry of WordPress Themes looks great in 2013. Responsive WordPress Themes became a must-have for any website and all because of the extensively development of mobile devices. I`m thrilled to see more and more features implemented into themes: drag and drop page builders, powerful custom post types and admin panels, shortcodes managers, fonts managers, pushing the PHP limits to extreme.
However, functionality means nothing without a pixel-perfect and eye-catching design. Therefore, the way design blends with functionality is the key to a properly built WordPress theme.
Firstly, I want to wish you all “Happy New Year!”, wherever you are! Is the end of the year and is time for another WordPress roundup. Comparing to last year, I can`t not speak about the impressive evolution of WordPress themes. If twelve months ago their functionality and versatility was quite impressive, today, the user experience is outstanding. And this is all because of the dedicated community which breaths WordPress.
