Is WordPress Gutenberg any better a year on?

Posted on February 27, 2020

Almost a full year ago, we shared our thoughts on Gutenberg, the newly introduced editor on content management system WordPress, which was gradually making ‘blocks’ into its default setting. Well, more accurately, I shared my thoughts, but they largely mirrored those of the whole Engage Web team at the time.

Put simply, we didn’t like it. We found a number of (more…)

WP-Polls not working in WordPress – how to fix it

Posted on June 24, 2016

Recently I needed to install the WordPress Plugin WP-Polls onto a website to conduct a survey of the website’s visitors. It’s a great little plugin, and works very quickly and easily allowing website owners to create polls and have their visitors vote in the poll.

It’s also very topical considering the current EU referendum!

Anyhow, after installing this plugin I noticed it wasn’t actually working as expected. It outputted the question and the poll answers sure enough, but the ‘Vote’ button didn’t work when clicked on, and neither did the ‘show results’ link. It was as if the button was deactivated.

A quick search on Google revealed that this was a common problem, with a couple of possible causes and fixes. As I’m often frustrated at the way WordPress.org closes down its support forum threads before someone has (more…)

Notiflyer WordPress Plugin

Posted on March 21, 2013

If you run a WordPress website which receives loads of social interaction and comments, wouldn’t it be great if you could use the interaction to send out messages promoting your latest offers, or by directing people towards your social channels?

With Notiflyer you can do just that. The plugin allows you add a custom message, such as an offer, details of an event or even links to other parts of your website, Facebook or Twitter, which are included in any comment notification emails which are sent out. So whenever someone receives an email from your WordPress site telling them of a new comment, they’ll also receive your custom message, or ‘flyer’.

== Description ==

Notiflyer allows custom messages to be sent out with the comment notification emails WordPress sends to the post authors. This allows you to add messages such as links to your Twitter and Facebook pages, or messages about offers and promotions. This is particularly useful for attracting people towards your social channels on multi author sites.

== Installation ==

1. Upload `notiflyer` folder to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory
1. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

= Can I include HTML in the notification?
