WordPress Theme Development: Alternative Approaches and Tools

WordPress Theme Development: Alternative Approaches and Tools | Web Publishing Tools | Scoop.it
In this article, we’ll look at some of the different wordpress theme options, and how to develop them, with tips on which approach might be most suitable for your website and circumstances.
Robin Good's insight:



"If you’re starting out building WordPress themes or want to develop a system for building them more efficiently or robustly, how do you decide which approach to take?"


In this article by Rachel McCollin, you will find quite a bit of useful information describing how WordPress themes work and which are some of the different approaches available to developing them.


The options analyzed are:


  • Build a theme from scratch,
  • Edit (or “hack,” some might say) an existing theme,
  • Use the theme customizer to tweak an existing theme,
  • Create a child theme to make changes to an existing theme,
  • Create your own parent theme (using one of the approaches above) and child themes,
  • Use a theme framework.


Particularly interesting is the mention of the Wordpress theme customizer tool, which gives you the option to customize a theme without writing any code, simply by using a WYSIWYG interface. Check: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vD8v6u3noPg



Useful. Informative. 7710

Crowdsourced Copywriting and Translations with TextMaster

Crowdsourced Copywriting and Translations with TextMaster | Web Publishing Tools | Scoop.it
TextMaster the expert community dedicated to quality copywriting, translation and proofreading of all your texts in over 8 languages!
Robin Good's insight:


TextMaster is a crowdsourced copywriting, proofreading and text translation platform that can be utilized to obtain in a short time good quality texts on any topic assigned or translations of "original" contents you submit yourself.


TextMaster offers different three different levels of quality depending on whether you need just a basic editor or someone who is linguistically professional or even an expert in the specific topic area in which you need your content to be prepared.


Techcrunch writes: "TextMaster offers a platform for content creators to crowdsource their copywriting, translation and proofreading needs via its community of ‘professionals’ who have each gone through a quality vetting process and are paid per word.


We’ve previously described the service as a bit like Mechanical Turk but for a very specific niche.


TextMaster claims that 4,000 clients have used the service in its 12 months of operation, including AlloCiné, Cityrama, and Zagat, while its ‘crowd’ has grown to 35,000 copy editors, writers and translators who have processed “more than 12.5 million words.”


...TextMaster is available in eight languages: French, English, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, and Chinese."


I have requested an instant quote for a full translation from English to Italian by copying and pasting an article of mine of 1382 words into this page http://us.app.textmaster.com/clients/fastlane#content and got two estimates:


a) Basic level $36.76 - suggested bundle C 5,000 credits for $66.50


b) Standard level $104.48 - sugg. Bundle D 15,000 credits for $189

Create Multilingual Websites Without Any Technical Knowledge with Edicy

Robin Good's insight:


Edicy is a web-building app that allows anyone, to create a good looking web site without needing to know any HTML code.


The service (which offers also a free version), is similar to Wix, Weebly and the many other web-building tools created for non-technical people while providing some innovative solutions to allow in-line editing of any element and to make adding new content on the page a trivial step.


In particular, Edicy provides a set of cleanly pre-designed templates that can be applied to any web site you have created in one-click, as well as integrated domain registration and assignment, the ability to create and embed forms, to create multiple language versions of the site and to have password protected areas.

I am impressed with the ease that Edicy provides in this tool, but I am still convinced that the greatest potential for making these type of tools really effective is investing in building a first-class template gallery with more variety, and specific application / use designs. What is generally available now it is just pretty but it has little or no affinity with specific onòine communication and design needs (such as having a subscription page, a product promotion page, a report page, a landing, etc.).

Create Your Free One-Page Responsive Website with Aircus

Create Your Free One-Page Responsive Website with Aircus | Web Publishing Tools | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Aircus is a web publishing service which allows you to create, edit and publish a professional looking one-page web site or landing page without needing to know any HTML code and without needing to have any design skills.


Once you are registered and logged into Aircus you can easily add pre-designed content modules into your web page, and fill them with specific information or images. These modules can be easily sorted in any way you want.


An aircus web site grows as long as you need it to be as you can keep adding new content modules to it. These may include (among others):

  • Title
  • Menu
  • Services listing
  • Map
  • Contact form
  • Text box
  • Image galleries
  • Video
  • Social links
  • Comments


To make navigation easy you can also add at any point of your page a navigable menu which allows visitors to jump to any part of the page.


There are a few alternative "themes available" and you can select among different color schemes on some of them. You have no other control on fonts, text size, color and other styling elements, which I think - once given some good templates - a good thing to have.


Aircus web sites can be mapped to your own domain (for a fee) and are all fully responsive, meaning that they can be visualized properly on all kinds of devices from computer desktops to smartphones.


Free to use.

Mi limito a tradurre in italiano quanto scritto da Robin Good: Precedentemente conosciuto come WallWhisher, Padlet è una webapp che consente a chiounque di realizzare, condividere e pubblicare facilmente  contenuti multimediali. 

Padlet fornisce uno spazio nel quale è possibile caricare e posizionare dove si vuole qualsiasi tipo di immagine, link, video, o file. Attualmente le opzioni per il layout sono di due tipi: 1. Stream (come in un blog); 2. caricamento di uno sfondo personalizzato.

Il risultato finale può essere pubblicato come pagina pubblica, condiviso nei social media o incorporato in un sito web o blog o forum.

 

Posso aggiugnere che mi sembra un servizio che può essere facilmente utilizzato nella didattica in quanto offre la possibilità di creare spazi organizzati in cui presentare temi e problemi disciplinari o multidisciplinari e aggregare informazioni dal web su temi specifici. Un utile strumento per l'insegnamento e l'apprendimento.

 

Per utilizzarlo è sufficiente registrarsi, l'uso è libero e gratuito.

Why Open Access Is Critical for the Future of Scientific Papers

Robin Good: Few people today are aware of how much scientific knowledge is being restricted and not made accessible to everyone, thanks to existing business model and the exorbitant subscription prices that scientific journals and magazines charge to their subscribers.


Since such journals are the key medium through which scientists can get their work published and distributed widely, the least accessible are these journals, the greater the amount of people who will not be able to read what such research documents contain.


Nick Shockey and Jonathan Eisen provide an in-depth explanation of why "open access" in the case of scientific papers is so critical for our future.
