Developing a nice piece of software is not only about coming up with new features. Sometimes you have to stop and look back.
A short overview of the most helpful and user-friendly free photo banks for content publishers and social media managers in 2019.
The name Føroyar is derived from old Norse and means Sheep Islands, a name given by the Viking age settlers arriving from Norway in the 9th century.
Fields, woods, clouds, mountains. Waves could be a typical landscape portrait we've already seen all over the Internet. However, Vojtech Domlátil chose a different perspective of narration for his latest short film. Waves has a concept and that means adjusting the visuals to the sound of water.
Most people, 85% of them, watch videos without sound. To make sure your message gets through, consider burning your subtitles into your videos.

Long before the snow even starts to cover the roofs of our houses and temperature drops to zero we are reminded to rejoice in upcoming Christmas time by commercials. Some find them too annoying, some think they create a certain holiday atmosphere. One way or another, there are commercials which are worth watching. Touching, funny, sweet, there are many of them, but no matter what genre, they all make us feel like celebrating Christmas whatever month it is right now.
People who use WordPress to publish their poetry, their photographs or communicate to their customers their small business (about 30% of the internet) may not even know about Project Gutenberg. Ostensibly Project Gutenberg began as a new editor. Given how mediocre the WordPress TinyMCE editor has been from inception (note: we created FV WYSIWYG on FCKedit ten years ago and it's still the only editor which allows a writer to switch to code view and back again and not have all his/her paragraphs and line spacing arbitrarily changed), a new editor is a laudable goal.
Unfortunately Project Gutenberg turned out not to be an upgraded post editor but a new vision of WordPress in permanent Page Builder mode. There have been serious writings about the tyranny of choice. By forcing writers to make decisions about blocks, multiple photo layouts, forms, sliders every time they create a new paragraph, there are two results likely:
If you’re trying to breakthrough on Facebook with your videos here are some tips on how to gain success.
When it comes to video splash screens, you should always customize and pick something easily recognizable.
What is LastPass and why you should use it
As they say, the only secure password is the one you can't remember. This is the idea that keeps password managers like LastPass going. With LastPass, you only need a one super-strong master password (there goes the name—"the last pass you'll ever need"), which can be a line from your favourite song translated to a different language you speak, a quote from a movie, or any other phrase that is not too easy to hack.
Once you've entered the master password, LastPass will let you access your credentials for every other account saved in LastPass (Facebook and Twitter logins, e-mail, etc.) or do the autologin (If you activated it. Don't do it.). This way, you can use strong generated passwords for your accounts, without having to remember them or writing them down.
The great thing about LastPass is that it stores your data encrypted online and the data is only decrypted locally in your browser with your key, which even LastPass itself does not have. This way, LastPass users are protected from hacker attacks like the ones that happened to Adobe or Apple users.
Medium's non-existent login
Let's start with Medium Login. What user hating, social media centric tool ever dreamed up temporary sign in via email? If you want to log in to Medium via your email, you can't do it with email and password. You have to send a new email to yourself (which takes somewhere between 30 seconds and two minutes to arrive) and click on the link within 15 minutes.
Last week, Alec was interviewed by John Overall about WordPress, running a WordPress business and our products—FV Player and BusinessPress.
The podcasts are slowly but steadily winning over the global audience. According to a research conducted in 2017, 67 million Americans listen to podcasts monthly (14% up in just one year) and spend on average about 5 hours per week listening to podcasts. Impressive, right? With our love for multitasking, no wonder podcasts are getting so popular: listening to a podcast can make the time spent cleaning your apartment or commuting much more worthwhile.
The statistics say that most of the podcast listeners are young, educated, affluent active social media users - basically a portrait of a WordPress developer or a digital business owner, which explains the fact that there is such a great variety of WordPress podcasts to choose from.
2017 was a great deal for us in Foliovision! We've worked a lot on polishing our products and services as well as on getting more visibility on the market.
This year, we had our first Black Friday sale and got listed in about 20 different Black Friday sales roundups, yay! It was a great experience, but we still have so much to learn. Many thanks to all of you who decided to partner up with us, especially to MasterWP, WP Mayor, Winwar.uk, WPulsar, WP Newsify, PressAvenue, you guys rock!
But the most important thing for us, of course, is that our beloved child, FV Player, grew so much in the past year! We welcome so many new pro users of FV Player Pro in addition to the 30,000 active sites using the free player. We've received 15 new reviews of our player on WordPress.org, and all of them were 5-stars!
The FV Player got lots of new tweaks and features and became the most feature-rich video plugin for WordPress on the market. Here is how it happened:
We are big users of WP Rocket (licensed through 2020). WP Rocket works great on our clients' normal busy sites (up to 5 million visitors/month). We run one very high traffic network with up to 40 million visitors in one week or even a million visitors/hour.
On this site, WP Rocket fails miserably. When new articles are posted WP Rocket purges the cache of too many different pages:
- all the category archives to which the page belongs
- related date archives
- even the previous post and previous post in the same category (this is to keep the prev/next links on the posts working, if the post is updated it clears the next post too)
- and of course the homepage
And all of the above happens if a post is added, updated or a comment is posted. So when you have people writing new comments every second you end up with a lot of cache purges on the pages where the information about new comment is not so important - new comments should only purge that post cache and nothing else.
I recently received an email about our FV Player Pro plugin licensing and pricing. filmmaker Paul Moon's questions were good ones. Here are my answers.
Thanks for your email and your questions. I'm delighted to answer your questions.
I am very bothered by what appears to be a surprise limitation on my purchase: https://prnt.sc/gerwa6. That is a screenshot of my license upon purchasing FV Player Pro. THERE IS NO PLACE ON YOUR WEBSITE CLARIFYING A LIMITATION ON MY LICENSE. For you to add this only after I paid, is unacceptable. I'd like to understand what happened. A product is completely worthless when it expires after 1 year.
Your license never expires. You can continue to use the last version indefinitely forever. The main sales page clearly states: "All updates and support free for 1 year."
