WordPress Website Design Resources
A collection of website design resources for WordPress websites
We have collected together a selection of our favourite tools which we often use to help us create the websites. We have listed them here to help you out.
Gimp is our go-to image editing software, it is absolutely fantastic with everything it offers and extra to that it is opensource and free. There are updates and modifications to it from the community and it is constantly improving and gaining features.
A very useful tool that enables you to reduce your file size of any image you want to upload to your site. This not only saves server storage space but will also help to speed up your website.
Flat Icon has a great range of useful and professional icons and you can use a few for free although it can be a little restrictive it is still a useful resource. They offer you free use of their free icon selections.
Unsplash is a fantastic place to get completely free high-quality photographs. It works well for landscape and portraits of nature and natural beauty but not so well for tech and other areas. This is one of our favourite resources for images.
Web Development Resources
When creating websites we base them around the Content Management System (CMS) that is used by around 60% of websites on the internet. This CMS is WordPress. Whilst we use WordPress as the basis of the website build we often use custom code to edit and manipulate the sections and styles that we need to. For the custom coding, we often use Atom as it is a great code editor.
Spelling & Grammar
Even if your spelling is grammar is good, it can nearly always be better. We often use Grammarly to double-check the spelling and grammar of our content and to make sure we are expressing what we want to say in the best way we can.
Usernames & Passwords
Our hands-down favourite password manager is Master Password. The idea behind it is not to store any data on a server or locally as with other password managers as this can be compromised and hacked. Master Password relies on cryptography to generate your passwords on the fly and can be used on multiple devices to generate the same passwords without the devices ever having been connected.
