Hard At Work

Apart from releasing those gems, we have also been hard at work updating our existing plugins and child themes, with more than a dozen add-ons being updated over the last 4-5 weeks. So if you are an existing customer, there is an 80% chance that the product you purchased from us has an update available for you to use. Basically we have code reviewed and improved basically all those add-ons under the hood. Also, some older plugins like Dynamic Multi-Level Fields, ClassiAlerts and Slider Ultimate have had massive makeovers on either the front end or the admin back end, so make sure you take advantage of it.

How to Register Cheap Domain Names

How to Register Cheap Domain Names

Starting an online business is the cheapest way to start a business fast. Of course, there are certain concerns that must be addressed. One of the most overlooked things about starting a business online, is the domain name. Every business online requires a domain name. A domain name identifies the business and makes it easier to locate on the Internet. Today, it is easy to acquire a cheap domain name with a convenient domain promo code. Here is what you need to know about domain names on the Internet.

Why You Need a Domain Name

Every small business to major corporations on the Internet has their own domain name. Otherwise, it would be virtually impossible to find their business online. A domain name belongs to the business or person. It identifies their virtual address on the Internet. A domain name is the business name followed by .com or some other form like edu. or org. after the business name.

Registering a Domain Name

At one time, registering a domain name was a complicated and expensive process. Today, registration is decidedly different. It is easy enough for a child to complete the process. Believe me, easy registration that is hassle free is important. Simply search online for a domain registration site like GoDaddy, NameCheap, Name.com or Dynadot. Take a look around the website and read what they have to offer. Select your domain name. Make sure that it is available. Next, you will have to pay for your domain name. Promo codes come in handy here. The site will take you through the registration process quickly. The registration should take five minutes or less.

How to Register Cheap Domains

The price for a domain name has certainly decreased in price over the last few years, but it can still be pricey for some people who are on a tight budget. Fortunately, it is easy to get a cheap domain name with a domain promo code like the one available at www.couponswift.com site. Simply grab your coupon code and use it during the domain registration process. The whole process is simple, easy, and quick.

Hide WordPress Widgets on Mobile Devices

Hide WordPress Widgets on Mobile Devices

Are you running a responsive WordPress website? Ever felt the pages becoming too long on smaller screens? Do you wish you could hide certain widgets on mobile devices? Don’t worry as we have just launched a brand new plugin that helps you optimise your website pages for mobile devices. Hide Widgets on Mobile plugin is a perfect companion for your responsive WordPress theme and lets you hide any active widget from all mobile devices with just one click by adding a check box to each widget settings!

With the increase in number of responsive websites using WordPress as a CMS, the general trend is to stack the sidebar below the main content area to display a “one column layout” and hiding certain elements on mobile devices for a cleaner look. This approach is great and works for a majority of websites, yet the only downside of it is that as the column width becomes smaller, the height of the content area grows making the page too long for the widgets in the sidebar below to stay relevant. Thankfully, there is now a ready solution in the form of the Hide Widgets on Mobile plugin and we have taken care of the performance side as well. The widgets which are selected to be hidden are actually not displayed at all on any mobile device (not just hidden via CSS media queries), making the page load quicker as well.

Hide Widgets on Mobile Details

Furthermore, we have a brand new child theme launching soon for Clipper coupon listing theme from AppThemes called Flatter, which is fully responsive and based on “flat design”. Take a sneak peek at how it massively improves on the default design of the Clipper theme.

Multi-Region in ClassiPress Gets Even Better!

Multi-Region in ClassiPress Gets Even Better!

The weather may be indifferent in many parts of the world, while some are enjoying the sun, it is a very special day nevertheless. We are close to completing a major update to Dynamic Multi-Level Fields plugin, the most complete multi-region solution for ClassiPress, so you and your users have a much smoother experience!

Arguably the best part of the update is that it is now compatible with the excellent plugin Advanced Custom Fields for ClassiPress by Artem Frolov. There was a lot of demand for it and we have listened. Now ad custom fields linked to the user profile fields via the ACF plugin will automatically be populated in the multi-level drop downs on “Post an Ad” page.

But the goodness does not end here. We are now using AJAX to load the multi-level options in lower level drop downs based on values selected in the top level drop downs, so the pages load quicker and no unwanted data gets loaded. We have also added more settings to the plugin options page so all visible text on the front end can be localised from the admin back end itself. The new version will soon be tested with the latest development version of ClassiPress and WordPress 3.6 release candidate, so you will probably not have to update it again when we have the final release of ClassiPress 3.3.1 and WordPress 3.6. There is also a surprise in store for those who are thinking of purchasing Dynamic Multi-Level fields, but you shall find out in the next blog post announcing the release of Version 1.4!

Our other multi-region plugins for ClassiPress, the Statify Ultimate and Citify Ultimate plugins have both been updated to version 1.5.6 to address a bug with blog display. Please download the update from “My Accounts” page if you are running any of these plugins.
