Building web applications is very different than building WordPress sites, themes, or plugins, and, how you use it, may invalidate some of the reasons for choosing WordPress. As a result, you need to think through which reasons still apply and decide if it still makes sense to use WordPress at all.

Here are some of the big reasons to choose WordPress to build an app—which, for the most part, apply to any type of project:

  • Awesome and highly extensible content management and editing
  • A solid and secure relational database that is easy to query
  • A totally customizable REST API
  • A strong commitment to backwards-compatibility
  • PHP—a mature, solid, and rapidly improving language
  • A powerful and extendable URL mapping system—for example, WP Rewrites
  • Your overall familiarity using and working with WordPress

These are all good reasons to use WordPress; however it’s important to consider that it is not the only solution out there. Keep those in mind, listen to the WordPress-haters, as their alternatives might be good options, but keep in mind that you know WordPress, and you’re good at it. That alone may be the reason you’re using it.

The plugin creates a special RSS feed that automatically optimizes posts to appear as Instant Articles. The plugin is open-source and customizable. Its documentation is available on Github.

Facebook said it worked with “a small group of publishers” that run on WordPress, including Foreign Policy and Tribune Media’s Zap2it, to test the plugin.

In a blog post, Facebook noted how the plugin formatted this Foreign Policy story for Instant Articles:

For example, the plugin recognizes the image found in this Foreign Policy article and specifies the correct markup so the photo renders properly in the Instant Article. The photo expands to fill the screen when tapped and allows exploration by simply tilting the phone.

The plugin “also supports native autoplay video as well as social and interactive graphic embeds,” Facebook said.

In its own post, Automattic explained that anyone using the Instant Articles plugin will have to undergo review by Facebook to ensure their pages are “properly formatted and adhere to their community standards and content policies before you’ll be able to start pushing content to the platform.”

Instant Articles will be available to anyone starting April 12, when Facebook holds its annual F8 developer conference in San Francisco. Hundreds of publishers are already publishing on Instant Articles.

Facebook similarly encouraged developers to contribute to the plugin’s development on Github. Itnotes that the “plugin is still in early stages and the underlying APIs (like filters, classes, etc.) may change.”

Facebook has continued to tweak Instant Articles as it receives feedback from news organizations already using the product. Facebook now lets publishers solicit email newsletter signups in Instant Articles, and in December the company made it easier for publishers to generate ad revenue from Instant Articles.

“The biggest stumbling block with Instant Articles was that we were making less there than with visits to our own site,” Joe Speiser, co-founder of LittleThings.com, told The Wall Street Journal. “We are now seeing parity with our mobile Web version.”

Few Words From Amrap Active

We’re a community who trains hard. We need gear that keeps up. We don’t take ourselves too seriously (apart from this photo where I look totally bad-ass). And we’re always happy to get a PB & look good doing it. Oh & we’re about ot have a little name change – soon AMRAP Athletica will be AMRAP Active aligning better with the vision for the brand.

You probably love buying new gear to train in & there’s no secret there’s a shit ton of people out there doing it now. But wouldn’t it be nice if you knew . . .

* The gear you’re buying was designed by someone who actually has a background in the fashion industry & trains every day just like you (kinda important right?).

* That instead of dodgy cotton & cheap fabrics, you’re always going to get a garment that lasted, washed well & kept it’s shape.

* I’ll never fill you up on non-existent fabric technologies – there’s quite a lot of insinuations out there leading you to believe you are purchasing a cutting-edge, trademarked fabric when in fact, it’s simply not true. On the other hand a lot of new technologies involve coating fabric in layers of chemicals – from what I can determine I am not yet seeing enough research on the effects of transfer to the skin when you’re hot & sweaty. So I promise, no bull shit to fluff up the product – just the facts.

When it comes to blogging, we have plenty of options such as WordPress, BlogSpot, Tumblr to name a few. One of the most talked topic here is WordPress or Blogger for blogging.

This gets pretty confusing at time, as many users like BlogSpot because of less tech hassles, and many users love WordPress, because of more power and features. When someone ask me, which platform I should start with, here is my answer:

My recommendation is always start with WordPress.com for a month, and once you get accustomed with blogging, you should start a new blog on Self hosted WordPress platform.

You are free to use Blogger.com, as your launchpad blogging platform, but don’t stick to it for too long.

I could say that, because I started my blogging life with BlogSpot, and later moved to WordPress.org. It was a hell lot of learning experience back then, but now learning WordPress is quite easy with the help of videos.

Anyways, in this article I will share a quick comparison of WordPress vs BlogSpot, and would explain under what condition which platform you should choose.

Why and why not Blogger:

Blogger or BlogSpot platform is very useful, when you just want to start a blog to share your thoughts. When you are not blogging for money, or you need a platform which doesn’t require any technical know-how, BlogSpot is really good.

There are many limitations of BlogSpot in terms of functionalities, SEO benefit, but overall if you just need a platform to start a blog with almost 0 cost, BlogSpot is the right pick.

At the same time, if you are blogging for money, fame or for branding yourself, BlogSpot is not the ideas choice. Reason being, you have limited control on visibility in search engines, and after a while, you are limited with adding new features.

I have read it many times, that Blogger is Google product, and it gives more SEO advantages, and it’s a pure rumour. It doesn’t matter if you are using WordPress, Blogger,Drupal or any other platform, SEO is decided by how you configure your complete site for search engines.

In Blogger platform, we have limited control, and despite of the fact, they added new SEO features, BlogSpot still lacks in SEO optimization.

In nutshell, Blogger platform is better than WordPress, when you are creating a blog, for your passion, and you are ok with the limited features offered by Blogger platform.

Why and why not WordPress:

WordPress gives you complete control on your blog, and you could technically do anything you like.

You get complete control on the SEO, you host your own files, you can add SEO plugins, which will help to make your blog more SEO friendly. Moreover, you can always add latest SEO techniques like start rating using a plugin such as Rich Snippets.

WordPress will let you do everything you wanted, but at the same time you need to manage your own blog. You need to install WordPress on your server, and maintain your blog.

It may sound technical, but with such an amazing support from WordPress community, you can always learn everything in no-time. Infact, if you stumble on ShoutMeLoud WordPress guide, most of your queries regarding WordPress, will be answered. Getting started with WordPress may require some effort, in terms of watching videos, learninghow to add a plugin, getting use to dashboard, but is in’t the similar thing we learned on Blogger?

If you are planning to create a blog, with mindset of making it popular, making money from it, you should prefer self hosted WordPress blog. If you are an occasional writer, or a hobby-blogger, BlogSpot is the best pick for you.

WordPress is undoubtedly a great platform for bloggers and individuals seeking for an easy way to setup and manage their website. In fact, it is touted as the most dominating content management systems in the world. But, WordPress comes with a set of limitations as well. One of the limitations of a WP site is that the search capabilities aren’t as good as it should be.

Search : With over 80,000 installs, the Search Everything WordPress plugin tops the list of search plugins. As the name implies, the plugin once installed on your site will visitors search for everything on the site. Basically, it helps in improving the default search functionality of a WordPress site – without having to manipulate any of your website pages.

The plugin can be configured to give your users the ability to search for pages, custom fields, data, excerpts, and much more. It comes with a helper called “Research Everything” that allows to search for posts and even help in linking to those posts while you’re writing. The only issue with this plugin is that it doesn’t allow searching for the password-protected content.

 

Relevanssi : Another great search plugin for a WordPress site worth exploring is Relevanssi with more than 80,000 downloads. What’s best about this plugin is that it replaces the default WordPress search functionality with a better search engine – that comes bundled with plenty of features and configurable options. Most importantly, it helps in searching for results that are sorted out based on relevance, rather than by date.

 

Custom Search : Well, if you want the flexibility of Google search engine giant for searching the contents present on your WordPress site, then Google Custom Search plugin is a worth a try. Though, WordPress features somewhat good search functionality, but it is likely to become slow and unresponsive if it doesn’t match keywords in the correct manner. Besides, the WordPress search functionality showcases the results that are ordered by date, instead of their relevance to the keywords.

Web is completely progressing towards developing an enormous app store that plays a significant role in web development. Since the day HTML has launched, it has been receiving striking responses from huge numbers clients across worldwide.
We have been using already released versions of HTML for web development. But the question is how efficiently it works while designing a web page or website. The markup languages, we use should absolutely work as per the specific requirements. With existing markups, web developers are struggling to incorporate responsive features that make the website semantic and speedy.
Especially developing high-end web solutions are challenging with HTML5. Custom web development companies demands are gradually increasing towards the improvement of HTML5!

 

Further, web developers are encountering various other problems while providing web development solutions. Thus, they are demanding for a brilliant markup language that overcomes the obstacles of HTML5 which is technically still incomplete. Here are some 10 proposals for incredible HTML6 which is sure to outpace the web developers.

1. Dedicated Libraries :

jQuery has brought revolution in the world of JavaScript including standard libraries. The amount of energy used up on loading jQuery is very high. Numerous websites are utilizing cacheable versions of JavaScript libraries across the globe. When a huge number of web designers prefer a specific library, it can be diffused with the browsers. This is one of the reasons why developers are expecting for new HTML version that can do something better.
  

2. Camera Integration :

In the modern world, most users are communicating with browser which has a camera and a microphone connected, due to the extensive usage of Web cameras and cellular phones cameras around. Incorporation of a photo or a video capture feature in HTML6 helps to easily access photos which are stored in the device. The device will also provide better control over the camera and boost the detection rate.

3. Pluggable Pre-processors :

Pre-processors are already available in existing HTML versions to convert languages into JavaScript. HTML5 always considers a general version of JavaScript while optimizing the code for the local machine. HTML6 should improve this code optimization process by adopting certain feature.

4. Pluggable Languages :

 
If HTML6 arrives with effective and pluggable languages, it will be highly useful for web developers for creating unique designs in a prompt manner. Any browser can easily implement this feature within a few steps if it is an open source business model.

5. Better Annotation :

 
A well designed HTML structure supports article annotations through paragraphs, sentences as well as words too. Developers are looking for a dynamic and powerful version that allows annotations even to images and videos.

6. Hardened Authentication :

 
For instance, the browser should provide high and fast authentication while accessing HTML6. Creating trusted software would help both the browser and site to work efficiently. For extreme confidentiality and security, the browser can offer sign tokens with embedded keys rather than cookies.

7. More Control over Video Object:

 
In the next iteration of HTML, people are looking for additional control over how the structures of the video dispersed on the web pages. The current version is available with a rectangle that packs a set frame from a specific video and the control is given across a text track with annotations, subtitles etc. If HTML 6 embrace callback hooks and synchronization mechanisms, it will be helpful to come up with world class videos.

8. Stronger Micro-formats :

 
As HTML tags vary from headlines, paragraphs and footers, it’s very essential to build a standard to define the general details like parts of an address or a phone number. Creating standard tags will not only speed up search engines, but also boosts your website quality. Developers can also use HTML6 to specify locations, times, dates, selling products, bibliographies, and etc.

9. Browser-sizing of imagery :

The pixel size of any image completely differs from mobile to desktop screen. An improved version of HTML can suggest a preferred height and width of the image. This procedure will definitely provide optimal resolution.

10. Guarded Accessing to Contact Information :

For the betterment, the interface should provide absolutely subtle control to allow people while giving automatic access to code arriving from some domains but not others.

WordPress is one of the best CMS available for free today. It come with a huge community that provide lot of themes and plugin for almost every purpose. This great flexibility have a downside, its heavy to lo ad and view. The page view require a lot of HTTP calls and usually it make the page loading very slow.

When i was looking for a better mode to serve WordPress pages i’ve found the WP JSON plugin. From it,  the idea to serve contents with an AngularJS single page application.

In This way the page load can be very fast and i’ve the chance to override almost every original behaviour simply by coding some AngularJS controller and views. I’ve found the WordPress theme programming not so easy and if you don’t know all the APIs, hard to learn. Using AngularJS as front-end, doesn’t require WordPress API knowledge and give you the possibility to manipulate your content as you like just using one of the best JavaScript front-end framework.
