Whatever level of WordPress developer you are, I’m pretty sure you’ve all wished you were a bit better at one aspect of it or another. But finding the ideal online course, or forum, or other place to get help, is never an easy task.
No matter how many sites you visit, forums you frequent, and groups you turn to, nothing will beat getting advice from the top WordPress developers in the world.

There are plenty of businesses and web developers out there who have the need to showcase a certain type of directory listing on their sites. Be it to show all the cars on a car dealer’s website, or to list job posts, or even to just display your forms’ entries in a simple table style, you will need a plugin that can make it easy and efficient, while looking sleek and professional. GravityView seems to do just that. GravityView is a plugin developed by Zack Katz at Katz Web Services, the developer behind the original Gravity Forms Directory add-on plugin.

Creating a good looking thumbnail image for any post type is one of the first ways to attract your visitors’ attention to that section of the site.

Anyone who has had a lot of content that they want to show directly on their homepage has, at one time or another, considered or used a slider. These sliders are a good way to showcase and highlight your important content, while at the same time grabbing your viewers’ attention from the moment they open your site. They can be used to display multiple images, as well as videos and other content, depending on the purpose of your site.
There are a lot of slider plugins out there, however not all serve their purpose well. Some of them are slow, mainly due to the fact that they won’t be coded well enough, resulting in an increase in your page load time. This should be a major factor when choosing the plugin you want to use, as slow loading times can push visitors away from the get go. Others are not that easy to use for beginners, while most aren’t even responsive. The use of a responsive theme is vital nowadays, and not having a responsive plugin could undo all your hard work. Make sure you pick a plugin that would look as good on your phone as it would on a desktop.
