Anyone who’s worked with graphic/web design & beyond is well-acquainted with Lorem Ipsum. This mock content is ideal for demonstrating page layout or fleshing out a design-in-progress with filler text. Lorem Ipsum has been in use since the 16th century, albeit in a multitude of variations since then.

What Are WordPress Child Themes?

April 22, 2014
22nd Apr

What is a child theme?

Child themes are like little carbon copies of a WordPress theme, or the parent theme, which share the same functionality. When you create a child theme, you’re making a duplicate shell of the parent theme.  Should you wish to play around with or customize the theme’s code, you can safely do so with the child theme’s, leaving the parent theme untouched and preserved.

Tired of soulless stock photos?

April 8, 2014
08th Apr

We’ve all seen them– the sterile corporate handshake, over-saturated green fields under a blue sky, a confused-looking woman staring into the distance. Images are powerful tools. They say a picture is worth a thousand words and they’re not wrong; even one ill-fitted photo on your site can greatly diminish the tone or overall feel. They’re the first bits of content a user will notice upon landing on your page and they will likely help determine within seconds whether or not said user wishes to remain engaged with the site. That’s pretty heavy stuff, right? Don’t stress! We’re here to help.

We’ve compiled a list of websites offering quality stock photos for free. Take advantage of these wonderful resources to make your site stand out in the best way possible.
