It’s been a couple of weeks since I made new tutorials on my website.
I’ve been busy working on Ultimate Member’s upcoming extension “User Events”. User Events extension works and looks similar to the Facebook Event feature. It is being developed with VueJS and Vuetify to make the development faster and provide a better User Experience(UX) and User Interface ( UI ) as well as provide a better approach to customization for developers.
We’ve planned to release the new extension on the 2nd week of September 2020.
Armed your WordPress Membership sites with powerful development tools
Amid the Covid-19 pandemic opens an opportunity for me to work on my side project called ArmedWP.Io.
ArmedWP is a WordPress plugin that will allow your community/membership sites to scale on top of popular plugins BuddyPress and Ultimate Member. I’ve worked on several Membership/Community sites running with WordPress that few ended up discontinued or abandoned by the client due to multiple bugs and complex scaling.
I’m a full-time WordPress developer with experience in Laravel development. I see how difficult it is to manage a community/membership site running on WordPress. Most of the time, it prevents the site from completely scale without issues due to following WP standard or unforeseen bugs made by plugin developers after updates officially released. Also, one of the main reasons why other developers/agencies abandoned WordPress is due to the breaking-changes that plugin developer releases and it makes the development unstable and difficult to manage by relying on the development process of these developers. It’s not cost-effective and doesn’t allow you to see the trajectory of the development and maintenance cost due to these bugs that keep coming back or cause any conflict issues that are difficult to trace every time we update the plugin.
Armed WP will make your site powerful and scalable. But this doesn’t make your current work and progress put to waste with WordPress. You can still run your current WordPress setup and keep the Armed WP components that have the same feature of BuddyPress and Ultimate Member but Built to Scale and Manageable following several Laravel development standards. ArmedWP is still in private beta and will be available to the public in January 2021.
My first attempt to Aquascaping
Aquascaping is the craft of arranging aquatic plants, as well as rocks, stones, cavework, or driftwood, in an aesthetically pleasing manner within an aquarium—in effect, gardening under water.Wikipedia
I found a new hobby (maybe )! Since we are still in the lockdown period in the Philippines, there’s no way we can travel to beaches and other beautiful sightings in the country. So I started searching for a new hobby or new experience and the Youtube recommendation algorithm gave me a clue to keep myself sane. After watching some beautiful aqua scaping videos on Youtube, the next day I bought a small tank, to begin with. And here are a few photos of my masterpiece lol.
Our command center turned Lo-Fi.
We are fans of Lo-Fi music so we added few improvements to our command center so we can feel the real vibe while intaking alcohol…while working. At least we don’t drink and drive.
That’s all for now. I hope that you still follow my posts here. Feel free to leave some questions, feedback, and good vibes in the comment section below. Stay safe; stay well 👌
