A Code Snippet to Fix WooCommerce 3.0 Lightboxes

A Code Snippet to Fix WooCommerce 3.0 Lightboxes →

I truly love WooCommerce, but there’s one thing I don’t love about it: breaking changes. Working mostly in WordPress, breaking changes generally feel like something scary and challenging that I expect people in other environments to have to deal with—a bit like, say, cobras. The exception is WooCommerce, which brings the cobras right into my house.

When WooCommerce 3.0 launched, I wondered where the “lightbox” option had gone on one of my clients’ sites. I Googled a bit, and it turned out product lightboxes were just gone as a WooCommerce setting.

Fortunately, I also found the simple PHP code to re-enable them, and the re-enabled version is cleaner and more beautiful than ever—which, I suppose, is the bright side of breaking backwards compatibility.

If you want lightboxes, hovering zoom, and product galleries for your WooCommerce products and wonder where they went after WooCommerce 3.0, check the link below.

5 Entrepreneurial Skills Parents Must Teach Their Child For Future

Being a parent is one of the most wonderful feelings in this world. Seeing a child grow imbibing different skills is the dream of every parent. While living this dream, most of the parents fail to teach their child certain entrepreneurial skills that can help them in leading a successful life in future. It is very important to develop the entrepreneurial mindset in children at early ages. Kids learn things at tender age quickly. They have enough time to implement and experience what they have learnt at young age. Moreover, they have few mental barriers to torn off in process…

How the tech world would change if net neutrality is abolished

The FCC recently posted a notice about a proposed piece of legislation that would, essentially, roll back the Open Internet Order of 2015, which established the concept of net neutrality. These are publicly available documents, and you can read them for yourself. Of course, the documents are also wordy and complicated, so I’m going to distill them down into something we can all understand here. Here’s what such proposed legislation would mean for the internet—and for the future of our technology. What It Actually Means The proposal is called “Restoring Internet Freedom,” because its proponents believe that net neutrality is…

Imzy, the nicer Reddit, is shutting down

As quietly as it came, community site Imzy is shutting down after just over a year of operation. @imzyhq 3/3 – But for today, I am heartbroken to say, that @imzyhq is shutting down. https://t.co/JQBxXxPisCThanks for the support everyone. — Dan McComas (@kickme444) May 24, 2017 Imzy was created by former Reddit employees Dan McComas and Jessica Moreno as a safer, friendlier version of the popular community site. This approach doesn’t seem to have served Imzy well in the long run: We’ve loved getting to know all of you and seeing you build communities and make new friends. Unfortunately, we were not…

Pokémon GO update trolls cheaters with common monsters

Pokémon GO developer Niantic has discovered an insidious new way to ruin a cheater’s day: give them stuff they don’t want. First spotted by the Pokémon GO subreddit The Silph Road, the changes rolled out last weekend. This new approach flags a cheater’s account, “shadowbanning” them so that they can still play — they’ll just only be able to see common Pokémon. Scanners show Pokémon GO players where rare monsters are, to save some the trouble of long searches on foot. Using third-party software is against Niantic’s terms of service, and in the past it has just banned cheaters’ accounts en masse. The Silph Road’s…

Intel da el paso para que los próximos Macs con Thunderbolt 3 sean más delgados

Macbook Usb C

Justo cuando los análisis de los nuevos Surface Pro de Microsoft señalan la ausencia de puertos USB-C y Thunderbolt, Intel ha decidido liberar las especificaciones de la interfaz Thunderbolt 3 para que la industria pueda incluirlo en sus dispositivos sin la necesidad de pagar royalties.

Esto puede empujar mucho esta conexión, capaz de transmitir todo tipo de datos y funcionar como una interfaz universal, hacia muchos más dispositivos de más marcas. En Apple está en los MacBook Pro más recientes, pero se espera que se extienda al resto de ordenadores a medida que se vayan renovando.

How this nano technology has quietly infiltrated several consumer products

In nature, because water is a polar molecule, it naturally forms clusters that end up being about 1 micron in size. These water clusters are absorbed easily throughout the digestive system into the blood.  In the blood, some water molecules that are loosely bound to these large clusters are pulled off for use in cells. The large clusters themselves are too large to enter a cell. Cells struggle to get adequate water molecules by robbing them from passing large clusters. Hydrozomes (a new nano-engineered form of water molecules) are quite different. They are about 100 nanometers in size, roughly 1/10th…

How to Improve the Performance of Your WordPress Theme

Average page weight reached 2,884kb in May 2017. Research by Google DoubleClick reported an average load time of 19 seconds on mobile devices. Yet performance matters more than ever:

User Frustration
Users will not wait. According to research by the Aberdeen Group, every one second delay results in:

  • 11% fewer page views
  • a 16% decrease in user satisfaction
  • a 7% drop in conversions

Mobile access accounts for 55% of all web traffic. Device and bandwidth capabilities improve but not at the rate page weight is growing. Users are often charged per byte.

Search Engine Ranking
Google penalizes slow, heavyweight sites.

Hosting Costs
Hosting with companies such as SiteGround will be reasonable but heavyweight sites use more resources and cost more than slimmer alternatives.

The more assets your site requires, the more costly it is to maintain.

Ultimately, a slow site costs you and your users money. Remind your boss of this simple fact the next time they demand a frivolous feature!
