WPTavern: WPWeekly Episode 282 – Talking WooCommerce with Cody Landefield

WPTavern: WPWeekly Episode 282 – Talking WooCommerce with Cody Landefield

In this episode, John James Jacoby and I are joined by Cody Landefield, Senior web strategist and founder of Mode Effect. Landefield describes some of the challenges that shop owners face and provides insight into a couple of WooCommerce projects Mode Effect has recently built.

We discussed the future of WooCommerce and the odds of it turning into a SaaS product. Landefield shares his thoughts on WooCommerce dropping its 50% renewal discount on subscriptions. Even though the discount is gone, he believes it’s still an affordable option for most users. To close out the show, Jacoby and I discuss the news of the week.

Stories Discussed:

AJ Morris Acquires iThemes Exchange
Jetpack Professional Plan Introduces Unlimited Access to 200+ Commercial Themes
bbPress 2.5.13 Readds Sanitization to Anonymous User Data
WP Rollback Adds Multisite Compatibility and Changelog Preview
Gutenberg 0.5.0 Adds New Verse Block for Poetry and a New Display for Recent Blocks

Picks of the Week:

Gutenberg Boilerplate For Third-Party Custom Blocks by Ahmad Awais. The boilerplate is a great way to learn the basics on creating custom blocks for Gutenberg. It comes with four example blocks.

  • A block with custom CSS for editor and front end
  • A block with ES6 or ESNext and a Webpack build process
  • A block with editable content
  • A block to click Tweet the contents of that block

Awais also shared his thoughts on the Gutenberg project.

Add Admin CSS – Using this plugin you’ll easily be able to define additional CSS (inline and/or files by URL) to be added to all administration pages. You can define CSS to appear inline in the admin head (within style tags), or reference CSS files to be linked.
