3 Free WordPress Frameworks When Themes Just Aren’t Enough

WordPress is extremely pervasive and all kinds of people know about it and use it. Why? Because it’s easy to set up, easy to use, and easy to customize based on your own personal preferences. Specifically, I’m talking about themes, which are almost one-click installations and can completely change the look of your WordPress site. But what if themes aren’t enough?

6 Absolutely Gorgeous Open-Source Project Websites

While there are many commercial sites that look fascinating, today we are honoring an incomplete selection of open-source project sites that we think look gorgeous, which means that in addition to the great software they offer, they also put in a lot of effort and work into offering a great and intuitive design, all for no financial gain.

How To Tell If Someone Is a Good Web Developer For Your Project

Picking someone to build a website for you is not an easy task. Even if you are not building the next Gmail, you should be doing things right the first time. But picking a good Web developer is not a simple task, especially if you don’t know much about creating websites yourself. If you can’t really tell PHP apart from CSS, how should you know if the person in front of you really knows their business?

Spinto – A Website Creator Both Newbies & Developers Can Like

Ah, the joy of creating a new website! Seriously, one of the greatest things about the web is how easy it is to start something new.

Many of these tools are aimed at new users creating their first websites. Spinto is a new service that tries a different angle.

Take Your Fonts Out On a Date To See If They Match With Type Connection

Whether or not you take an active interest in typography, I’m sure you’ve seen something like this before. A document whose writer (or, worse still, its designer) tried to be overly creative, and did some horrible font matching. I don’t just mean “used Comic Sans MS” (the perennial “awful font” everybody loves to hate), but even if the writer or designer used “sane” fonts, they don’t always go together.

Why Websites With Dark Backgrounds Completely Suck [Opinion]

You’re reading MakeUseOf right now, a website which primarily uses dark text on a light background. Which is as it should be. That bar across the top with light text on a dark background, and the section at the bottom which hardly anyone reads, are fine because they’re just small parts of the site. Any more and I would have to give my bosses advice on how to improve the look and feel of the site as a whole.

Creating webpages used to be such a tedious process. Aside from the hassle with deciding where to publicly host the page, you needed to learn HTML and then figure out how to program the page so that it didn’t look like some amateur threw it together. These days, there are countless websites that will let you create a webpage in mere minutes, without any knowledge of HTML whatsoever.

3 Ways to Integrate Google Plus Into Your Blog

Well, I finally caved in and adopted Google Plus. It wasn’t willingly – with most new fads, I like to wait it out to see if, like 90 percent of most new and exciting online phenomena, it fades away into the ether of cyberspace. In the case of Google Plus, I was instantly reminded of so many other failed projects in the past – Google Wave, Google Video Player, Google Notebook….the list goes on and on.
