My team and I recently built an awesome list template on WordPress that ranks a set of Twitter users based on follower count. It allows a content writer to easily add a list of Twitter handles, and generate a well designed post.
The first piece of content we created with it generated a 1,212% increase in traffic to our site. Check out the tutorial below if you’re interested in building it as well. […]
Every website owner, before ordering a website, faces a dilemma: whether to use a professional developer’s services or try one of the ready-made solutions that content management systems offer.
It’s a fight between web developers and ready-made website builders: who offers a more comfortable option for creating a fully-functional website that is easy to manage, customize and that looks great on any device?

Even there, you can start coding your design from scratch, or you can just use a starter WordPress theme that has all the basics to get you going. […]
When I first started out creating websites with WordPress, I was in awe of the depth and variety of plugins available. During those golden days I would willingly install just about anything that looked cool. Shortly thereafter, I was smacked in the head by reality.
