Read more

Within the last days we showed some Interviews Caspar did with visitors of the WordCamp Paris. But today we switched the roles: Our allrounder in the MarketPress Team, Caspar Hübinger, aka interviewer, supporter, multinlingual profi and Blogger got interviewed by Aurélien Denis (wpchannel.com in english and a little bit in french) about WordCamps, WordPress, communities and multiling websites.

Caspar speaks about language focused WordPress communities like in France and Germany, about using WordPress Multisite for multilanguage websites, how he found WordPress and his most often used french word. Of cause he speaks a little bit french, but that’s easy to understand – but check it out by yourself.

Adventskalender Day 16 – Front End Editing with WordPress 3.8

Read more

Some weeks ago a guy at the coworking space, I’m usually working at, asked me about a plugin to style your theme via the front end, some of his costumers want. I did not find what he asked for, but my colleagues knew about a plugin that, at least, makes front end editing possible. I really like it and think that this could be useful for some of you.

What we need is Parker, (better known as the latest version of WordPress 3.8) and a plugin called “WordPress Front-end Editor” by Janneke Van Dorpe. If you have not already updated to 3.8 don’t forget to do a backup!

The MarketPress Adventskalender 2013 – 24 Days WordPress Tips And Tricks Each Day!

Especially in Germany we have the tradition of an Adventskalender (Advent Calendar). An Adventskalender is a special calendar which is used to count down the days from December the 1st to Christmas Eve December 24th.

Such an Adventskalender has 24 doors (or little pouchs, like on the picture below), that will become unlocked every day during Advent. Each door opens to reveal a poem, part of a story such as the Nativity story itself, or an image. Since the last decades Adventskalender have a small gift concealed in each door, such as a toy or a chocolate item.

Is there a maximum size for WooCommerce shops?

Read more

Searching for a free, self-hosted and open source shopping system, we will find names like Magento, oscommerce or OpenCart. Can the free WordPress plugin WooCommerce compete? Or is it made for small shops only?

We can answer this question from different points of view:

  • How expensive are installation and maintenance?
  • How active is the software development?
  • Can I meet all legal requirements?
  • Which payment gateways can I use?

We will answer these questions in future posts. Today, we want to know if anybody actually has tried to use WooCommerce for a shop with many products. I have set up a survey about that question some weeks ago.
