WordPress Wednesday - 10 WordPress Gutenberg Blocks Plugins
The WordPress Gutenberg editor brings a new block-based approach to creating content in WordPress. Rather than having a single unified text box like the classic TinyMCE editor, each bit of content you have in Gutenberg has its own block: - Such as a paragraph has its own block
- Each image has its own block
- A blockquote has its own block.. you get the idea
One of the impressive features of Gutenberg is that it's opens up the possibility for many third party developers to add their own blocks that you can use while creating content with Gutenberg.
Therefor its already led to the release of many Gutenberg blocks plugins. In this WordPress Wednesday post, I’ve collected some Gutenberg blocks plugins that give you access to awesome new content blocks in Gutenberg.
To see what the 10 WordPress Gutenberg Blocks Plugins that got featured in this post by visiting the following link:
Having Trouble Receiving Email Submissions From Your WordPress Gravity Forms?
Part of being a really good web developer, is developing enough websites to be able to learn and troubleshoot just about every possible scenario.
One thing that happens from time to time when web form submissions actually never end up in the intended recipient’s inbox. For example, whether it’s a standard “Contact Us” form, or a “Request Pricing” form, or even an event registration form, we typically use a popular form builder plug-in called Gravity Forms to create the fields that the user fills out, as well as set the recipient(s) email address for our client.
Most of the time the user receives all the email submissions, but in rare occasions, a specific email address will have trouble receiving all of the form submissions by users.
The submissions always show in the backend of WordPress, so they’re not lost, but timeliness is a factor, and the email alerts are usually mission critical.
We’ve been through several scenarios where this has happened, and it always comes down – not to the website – but rather to issues with the spam blocking filter on the email server side of things.
We had to say it, but “it’s not OUR problem.” But it is our problem, especially in the name of a top notch client experience. So, our team went to work to get to the bottom of this, and here’s essentially what we found…
1. Most of the time, when the email “from” address is a non-existent address at the same domain name as the website, it fixes the issue. It should not be the same as the recipient address. However, when this doesn’t solve the issue, we dig deeper and find…(read the rest at www.DataOverOpinions.com)

3) Social Bookmarking Websites
Social bookmarking is a way for people to store, organize, search, and manage “bookmarks” of web pages. Users save links to web pages that they like or want to share, using a social bookmarking site to store these links. These bookmarks are usually public, and can be viewed by other members of the site where they are stored. Examples of social bookmarking sites include del.icio.us and digg.com. -
4) Online communities and forums
Online communities and forums are also helpful with content distribution. However, with these communities, you should not be focused on the direct promotion of your content, but instead, you should try to become a member, the one who helps with useful tips, the one who solves problems, the one who answers the question. This is what differentiates communities from social media and social bookmarking websites. -
The best way to take advantage of these websites is to join a certain community, start interacting with other members, participate in the discussions, etc. Gradually, over time you will get an opportunity to promote your own content and to share it with other members. -
Communities are also a great place to get feedback and new ideas that can show you how to improve your business. -
Popular communities for content distribution: • Quora
• GrowthHackers -
Once again very simple technical concepts elude me...I've been trying to figure out Webhooks all day and getting nowhere. It's extra frustrating because all the guides use "plain English" in ways I don't understand, like "Test this webhook URL and send a sample to us." I have no clue what this means!

2) Social networks
One the other hand, we have social networks, where the content distribution is done more frequently. This means that once you publish new content, you are most likely to share it on social media. In fact, you will probably end up sharing more than once. -
The most popular social networks, at this moment, include: • Facebook • YouTube • LinkedIn • Twitter • Instagram • Pinterest
Steps To Social Media Content Distribution -
A) Start with a strong message
You will need to grab attention with the social media post. A lot of people tend to simply copy the article’s title and think they are all set. However, customized and personalized messages bring much more engagement. -
B] End with a CTA
A call to action is a good strategy for encouraging social media followers to do a certain action, such as clicking the link, signing up, downloading something, sharing or following. To achieve these goals, you should end a post with an engaging CTA that invites the users to do the action you see as something beneficial for your business. -
C) Optimize the content for each network
It seems quite simple to create a single message and post it on four or five social networks, especially when you do this with a tool that enables social media management from a single interface. Even though this is a time-saver, it might not be a perfect way to get the most out of your content. Social networks are different in the way they distribute messages, present visuals or the way interaction is done, which is why you need to optimize the content for each of them. This means creating a custom message to accompany the post and using recommended image dimensions. -
