The Top 12 WordPress Themes for Sports Websites

WordPress is the most popular blogging system in the world today. Developed by the WordPress Foundation, it was released in May 2003 to widespread acclaim. One of the key factors behind the success of WordPress is that it has a built-in template system. This allows users to easily switch between pre-made themes that change the look and feel of their website. Themes are essentially user-created templates that WordPress administrators can freely access (or purchase) for their own website. Once installed, the appearance of the website changes as the PHP, HTML, and CSS makeup of the page are reconfigured. WordPress themes make it easy to launch your own personalized website. Whether your website is all about political affairs or the latest financial market speculation, there are WordPress themes that can appeal to your target demographic. If you want to build a sports-related website, WordPress is the platform for you. With hundreds…

7 Essential New Facebook Ad Features to Experiment with ASAP

Facebook’s been busy. While short-sighted people squabble over nothing, Facebook has been quietly rolling out new stuff that continues to make them an indispensable part of a marketer’s arsenal. Facebook’s custom audiences and ability to match data points with user information has been virtually untouchable. Albeit, limited.  Not anymore. The true underlying power isn’t in the feature per se. But in how you’re able to leverage it to work with all of the other activities, campaigns, and promotions you’re currently running in multiple channels. Here are seven examples that they’ve introduced over the past few months that you need to start experimenting with immediately. 1.

An SVG That Isn’t All… SVG

SVG is absolutely a vector graphics format. But it’s more than that. You can set type in it. You can place raster graphics in it. There is interactivity and animation. It’s more like a multimedia graphics format. Over on the Media Temple blog, I walk through the creation of a multimedia graphic to show off some of those possibilities. See the Pen SVG is a cross-medium format! by Chris Coyier (@chriscoyier) on CodePen. If we get SVG 2, it’ll be even more multimedia with the inclusion of audio, video, canvas, and more. If you’d like to make SVG more of a part of you day-do-day workflow, and I suggest you do, pick up a copy of Practical SVG.

Under-exploited HTML5 Features

Inspired Magazine Inspired Magazine – creativity & inspiration dailyHTML5 brought web development into a new era.  Unfortunately, many designers haven’t really caught on to its full potential, and actually are developing HTML4 pages with a simplified doctype and header section.  Looking at the source code, unless it is written by somebody who never worked in HTML4 or XHTML, you would often easily mistake it for HTML4 because those designers aren’t changing their style.This is a tremendous shame because HTML5 really does give us some fantastic improvements over HTML4. If we really push those improvements to their limit, the results would more than justify the small investment of time required to learn how to do that.In this article, we’ll go over some of the biggest improvements HTML5 has to offer (and which, in general, are being ignored by designers and developers), with some information on how you can put them to…
