‘Do it yourself Caching Methods with WordPress’ is my first article published on Smashing Magazine for WordPress. Article covers two different caching methods and includes practical examples with in line code, with full widget example showing different cache approaches.
One of the most frustrated things when using any kind of software, is that author doesn’t fix all the bugs fast enough. Since Dev4Press (and my other websites) use plugins other than my own, I decided to offer my own patches for the plugins I use, hopefully some of you will find that useful.
With the continuous growth of the Dev4Press, over the past year many things were changed to improve user experience and support. More such changes are coming and they will be introduced on March 4 2012. This will include improvements to forum, products info and more.
It is impossible to give detailed info about development that should span a whole year, but some plans are already made and it might be interesting to list them now that new 2012 has started. When this year ends, we will see how much of these plans have been completed.
Earlier this month I have published test of 35 plugins and their impact on the loading of WordPress. Based on interest for that article, I will not stop there. Each month new tests with more plugins will be conducted to help users and to help developers to make better plugins.
Last year in November, there was price adjustment for some of the products, and now, a year later we have more price changes. Themes prices are lowered (single and membership), plugins pack with annual payments is also lowered, and individual plugins have equal prices.
It has been 2 years to the day since I started working on new Dev4Press website and premium plugins business project. And, exactly one month after that, Dev4Press was online. With a bit of history of Dev4Press, we re giving 30% discount for all our products for the next month.
I get many questions about using PayPal to buy some of Dev4Press products, and this post offers more info on what products you can buy using PayPal, how to make the payment and why it can happen that you don’t get PayPal as a payment option when on ShareIt checkout page.
GD Products Center is a brand new plugin from Dev4Press for managing product types and products, bringing powerful comparison and filtering options and detailed product profiles that can feature specifications, images, videos and reviews. Current version is only preview of what’s to come.
So far, all purchases for Dev4Press plugins were with annual recurring payments. Starting today, we have another non-recurring license type based on the existing Standard Membership. New license is called Standard Lifetime and it’s available for all individual plugin purchases.
GD Products Center is a new plugin that will get its first release in exactly 10 days from now. This time I will give you short history on how and why this plugin got made and what features are planned for the first release, and you will see couple of images from the plugin interface.
Posting of books reviews will continue on Dev4Press next week with more WordPress and jQuery related books published by Packt Publishing with WordPress Top Plugins (written by Brandon Corbin) and WordPress 3.0 jQuery (written by Tessa Blakeley Silver) both from September 2010.
