Getting ready for the Gutenberg transition

Gutenberg is right around the corner with a speculated release in the second quarter of 2018, but what is Gutenberg? In short it’s the new editor experience for WordPress. The project aims to give you broader, better, and more consistent control on your content, and later, along the way your entire page layouts. The aim, at least at the beginning is to unify all content elements into what are called blocks. In the current editor experience, text, media items, shortcodes, links, offer quite different experiences when creating and customizing them. The introduction of Gutenberg blocks aims to make things more consistent for users that just want to create content without even knowing what a shortcode is.

If you are interested to learn more about the project (as you should because it will be in a WordPress installation near you pretty soon) you can check out the project’s page here.

Add Facebook Comments to your WordPress site

Facebook is by far the most popular social network on the planet, almost everyone you know is on it. You can capitalize on this by adding Facebook comments to your WordPress site.

Adding Facebook comments to your WordPress site allows everyone with an account to join in the discussion below your posts, or to start one if none is going on. People won’t have to go through the process of creating yet another account on another site just to leave a comment, they’ll be using an account they already have.

It’s not just the ease of your readers though, there are some major benefits for the site owner. First, there’s less spam because anonymity is scarce on Facebook, and second it has  a potential of reaching a great audience because users can choose to post their comment on their Facebook feed just by checking a box, so the comment will be seen by their friends and followers as well, instead of just by your site’s reader, it’s a pretty sweet deal.

Today we’ll take a look at a plugin that replaces WordPress’ default commenting system with Facebook comments, and on top of that it only loads Facebook comments when a user clicks a button so it won’t impact the site’s performance much.
