Display Different Content To Different Users

Written by Bec on March 13, 2016 – 6:43 AM -

WPMUDEV recently sent me a reminder about a free plugin they offer: Custom Sidebars. It is available to download for free from WordPress.org. I wrote about this plugin back in 2014, but wanted to put it out there for those of you that are new to the Adult Blog Builder website. The plugin lets you display different content to different users in your sidebar and footers.

With Custom Sidebars you can create as many unique sidebar configurations for your site as needed – show one set of sidebars to first-time visitors and another to members, set up sidebars for specific pages or categories, or for special landing pages, you name it – and trigger them to display as needed.

With this plugin you can customize every widget area by setting new default sidebars for a group of posts or pages easily, keeping the chance of changing them individually.

For example, you can change…

Sidebars for all the posts that belong to a category.
Sidebars for all the posts that belong to a post-type.
Sidebars for archives (by category, post-type, author, tag).
Sidebars for the main blog page.
Sidebars for search results.

It’s a must-have plugin, especially if you’re running a membership site and want to personalize the browsing experience for new and returning visitors. WPMU-DEV also offers a pro version of the plugin that is included free with a WPMU-DEV membership.

Which WordPress themes are on sale? All of the Premium Press Themes are discounted when using Coupon Code: FEBSPECIAL2015

WOW! 30% discount off the original price. These themes aren’t just about a fancy design, as these themes let you build custom sites for specific purposes. There is a Coupon Code website, Directory website, Classifieds Theme, Shopping Cart theme, and a Real Estate theme. Now these can be adapted for a different product, but the foundation is already in place for you to get the theme installed and start setting up your website without having to do a lot of custom work and deal with a bunch of plugins to get the functionality you’ve been wanting.

Once you buy the theme, it is yours to use as many times as you wish. I’ve purchased their directory theme, and the staff has been top notch for support, plus there are some very clear, and detailed videos available to walk you through every step in getting your site set up. And if you still want or need help, there is a very active community forum on the Premium Press site. If you have been wanting an Adult directory, a main stream money maker, or just need a shopping cart site/program to sell DVDs or your grandma’s prized jam, now would be a great time to save some $$ to get that site up and running.

This Premium Press discount is valid from Jan 18th – Feb 28th 2015 and be sure to use Coupon Code: FEBSPECIAL2015

Written by Bec on August 30, 2014 – 11:15 AM -

Digital Downloads Theme

Digital Downloads Theme

From PremiumPress has a new theme that’s perfect for digital downloads. Premium Digital Downloads WordPress Theme lets you create digital download websites in minutes!

This theme is ideal for creating an adult video download site, for profit. This would be similar to sites like Clips4Sale or AEBN where they actually purchase and immediately download the DVD or movie file. You can also use it for music sharing, documents, software, photo zip files, etc.

This Digital Download Theme lets you upload or link to files which visitors can then download. There are three main download system setups you can use with this Digital Download Theme: download after payment, downloaded for free and download after ‘sharing’.

All Premium Press Themes come with the PSD design files, free theme updates, 24/7 customer support and open source code so you can modify the theme in any manner you wish. Your license also lets you build unlimited sites.

Custom Sidebars Plugin Now Available

Written by Bec on May 6, 2014 – 11:47 AM -

wpmudev

Custom Sidebars
has become the latest addition to WPMU DEV’s collection of free plugins available for download in the WordPress Plugin Repository.

Custom Sidebars allows you to create your own widgetized areas and custom sidebars, and select which sidebars to use on posts or pages.

“We acquired the highly rated and popular plugin after hiring its creator Javi Marquez. Javi, a Spanish developer based in Seville, joined the WPMU DEV developer team last year.”

Sometimes it is necessary to show different elements on the sidebars for some posts or pages. The themes nowadays give you some areas to put the widgets, but those areas are common for all the posts that are using the same template. Custom Sidebars allows you to create all the widgetized areas you need, your own custom sidebars, configure them adding widgets, and replace the default sidebars on the posts or pages you want in just a few clicks.

Customize every widget area and also set new default sidebars for a group of posts or pages easily, keeping the ability of changing them individually.:

Sidebars for all the posts that belong to a category.
Sidebars for all the posts that belong to a post-type.
Sidebars for archives (by category, post-type, author, tag).
Sidebars for the main blog page.
Sidebars for search results.

———————————————————

I know I’ll be testing this plugin as I’ve wanted custom sidebars for years and just didn’t take the time to make a new .php for each page/post style. I like things that I click and it magically appears!

Testing The Appearance Of Your Site For Mobile Devices

Written by Bec on March 24, 2014 – 2:21 PM -

mobile-devicesMost of us probably didn’t give much thought about how our sites would look in mobile devices when we first created them, but as more and more people turn to ipads, smartphones, gaming devices, tablets, androids and the like, we’re going to have to adapt or get out of the way.

While users of some of the older smartphones may be forgiving if things don’t look right, anyone using state of the art electronic devices won’t be. So how do you test your site?

First and foremost, be sure your site is HTML5 compliant, and then do cross-browser checks. Once that’s done the best way would be to actually view the site on the various mobile devices, including tablets and gaming devices, not just various smartphones. While you, your friends and family are going to have some of the various devices around for you to use for testing purposes, you’re probably not going to find all of them. Short of camping out at the electronics counter at places that sell mobile devices there are some free online tools that you can use.

The mobiReady Page Test checks to see how well your site does according to the W3C Mobile Web Best Practices, and breaks it down as to a number of pass/fail/ warnings for various design and development issues. There is an Android emulator called Android SDK at Android.com. You will have to download it and install it on your computer, then you can see what visitors using an Android device will see when visiting your site. Both mobiReady and Android Emulator are Free.

Keynote Device Simulator DeviceAnywhere Free is an easy-to-use on-demand tool for a quick test of your mobile web content on real mobile devices—from anywhere—at any time. DeviceAnywhere Free allows you to interact remotely with real live mobile devices in real time so you can see exactly how your website content looks and acts across a range of different mobile devices. This is the only service of its kind, providing access to real devices over the Internet. Unlike other free services, these are real mobile devices, so you can quickly see how your mobile website will render across a variety of popular smartphones. DeviceAnywhere Free is a no-cost, online service. No hidden charges. No credit cards. No contracts. No catches. You get an unlimited number of 10-minute sessions on any available device—from anywhere, any time! Time’s up? Switch devices and start again. Price: Free

Here are more sites I found on Practical Ecommerce that are Mobile Emulators:

Screenfly. Screenfly allows you to view your website on a variety of device screens and resolutions. Enter a URL and click on GO to get started. Price: Free.

GoMoMeter. GoMoMeter, by Google, shows you how your current site looks on a smartphone. The site provides a free report with personalized recommendations on how your business can build a more mobile-friendly website. Price: Free.

iPhone Tester. This iPhone emulator allows you to check your site in the dimensions for iPhone 3G and 4G, and iPod Touch. Just enter the URL of the site you want to test in the address bar. Price: Free.

iPad Peek. Check to see how your website looks on the iPad or iPhone. For an accurate simulation, use a WebKit-based browser, such as Apple Safari or Google Chrome. Price: Free.

Mobile Phone Emulator. This emulator enables you to see your site on a variety of mobile phones, including iPhone, HTC, LG, BlackBerry, and Samsung. Price: Free.

Also, keep in mind Flash doesn’t work on iPhones and iPads, so be sure to swap out any of your affiliate flash banners and bring in .jpg or .gif files instead.
