Wordpress Themes – Theme Killer http://themekiller.me/ Tue, 20 Sep 2022 22:06:11 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=5.9.3 https://themekiller.me/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/default.png Wordpress Themes – Theme Killer http://themekiller.me/ 32 32 A Free Portfolio Block Theme Designed for Freelancers and Agencies – WP Tavern https://themekiller.me/a-free-portfolio-block-theme-designed-for-freelancers-and-agencies-wp-tavern/ Tue, 20 Sep 2022 22:06:11 +0000 https://themekiller.me/a-free-portfolio-block-theme-designed-for-freelancers-and-agencies-wp-tavern/ The number of WordPress block themes has reached 137.

The number of WordPress block themes has reached 137. That’s a far cry from the 500 block themes that WordPress Executive Director Josepha Haden-Chomphosy set as her goal for 2022, but the number is steadily growing as theme authors find their place and find out how fast they block. themes can be created.

Brian Gardner throws his hat in the ring again with his latest outing. Design Mode is a new block theme created for freelancers and agencies to showcase their services and work. After its release, several of Gardener’s contemporaries, other theme designers, noticed how refreshing it is to see a block theme with “real world use cases” as many seem to be aimed at bloggers.

Design mode includes Outfit, a geometric sans serif Google font, designed by Rodrigo Fuenzalida, a Venezuelan type designer based in Santiago, Chile. It is used for both headings and paragraph text throughout the theme.

The demo gives the best idea of ​​what the theme looks like with an organized set of content-filled images, titles, captions, menus and buttons. Once installed and activated on a new site, the theme looks a lot like the demo but has a placeholder image instead of the photos used in the demo. This is because the photos did not have the correct license for distribution on WordPress.org, but the way they are shipped has the benefit of giving users a blank visual slate for these featured sections.

Design Mode includes 10 different templates, which are basically all aspects of design deconstructed into parts. There are several templates for sections with cover, header, text and button, three column query grid, section with text and separators, footer and header with site title and perfectly spaced navigation. The theme also includes a full page template which will instantly replicate the homepage in the demo.

Design Mode is an opinionated theme. Users can adjust background, text, and link colors, and adjust various templates through the full site edit, but it doesn’t come with additional style variations. Personal blogs can benefit from a kaleidoscope of style variations, but a well-designed portfolio theme usually doesn’t lend itself well to large style variations. In this case fewer options is a good thing which should preserve the simple palette of theme packages.

This is a very fast theme in itself. Gardner reports that Design Mode scores 99 and 100 on Google mobile/desktop page speed. Depending on the plugins and optimizations a user has enabled, this theme might be a good choice for performance-conscious WordPress users.

Design Mode is Gardner’s third block theme in the repertoire. It bears some similarities to its minimalist black and white Avant-Garde theme, but has more of a storefront-friendly vibe that suits personal portfolios, agencies, and any type of service business that would benefit from a sleek, structured design. .

Design Mode is available for free on WordPress.org or in WordPress through the Admin Themes Browser.

Wix Vs.

Wix offers its service for a certain price, and also has a free option. You can take a test drive and familiarize yourself with the design tools. The website builder at WordPress.org is free, but you’ll need a hosting company to give your website a place to “live”. Depending on the length of your commitment with the web host, you can sometimes find one from INR 160 per month. In Forbes Advisor’s analysis of the best WordPress hosting services, we found DreamHost and HostGator to be two of the best options.

Both Wix and WordPress have drag-and-drop functionality, so you don’t need any special coding to get your site looking the way you want. However, if you want more customization, WordPress.org is your best option because you can code freely with HTML. Although Wix allows you to insert HTML, it’s rather clunky.

With Wix, you get between 3GB and 50GB of storage. The storage available under WordPress.org depends on your underlying host company, but 50 GB is typical. Both companies also offer free themes or templates and plugins. Wix refers to plugins as applications. A paid plan with Wix will give you a free Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate and a custom domain, while WordPress.org will depend on your host, but hosts usually provide it for free.

A New WordPress Block Theme Focused on Long Writing – WP Tavern https://themekiller.me/a-new-wordpress-block-theme-focused-on-long-writing-wp-tavern/ Fri, 16 Sep 2022 22:14:47 +0000 https://themekiller.me/a-new-wordpress-block-theme-focused-on-long-writing-wp-tavern/ WordPress users looking for a block theme for blogging will have no shortage of options while Anders Norén is vying with consecutive theme submissions.

WordPress users looking for a block theme for blogging will have no shortage of options while Anders Norén is vying with consecutive theme submissions. Beaumont, its second themed release this month, is another designed for personal sites and blogs, but with an emphasis on long-form content. It is named after Thaddeus Beaumont, a character from Stephen King’s half dark.

The new theme features the same Albert Sans font used in Björk, its previous version, supported by STIX Two Text in text content. Beaumont was inspired by the design he uses on his personal website, which Norén said people asked him to turn into a theme. It has that faded paper look that instantly emphasizes the content of the text.

The single post template demo has an elegant design with drop caps, quotes, a custom “Preamble with a separator” pattern, and minimal previous/next post navigation at the bottom. Spacing and typography are exquisite in this theme and lends itself to a bit more formal presentation for long-form content.

Beaumont comes with nine block templates, which writers will appreciate, as most of them are dedicated to text presentation. Templates include long author biography, short author biography, drop cap paragraph, left-aligned quote paragraph, right-aligned quote paragraph, large quote, preamble with a separator, wide quote with diamond separators and a full page resume template.

If you notice a difference in the way the post content appears in the editor, this is a bug in WordPress, not a problem with the theme.

“Currently the text will be set in Albert Sans when you edit your content in the post editor, although it will be set in STIX Two Text on the front-end,” Norén said. “This is because WordPress currently does not apply the core/post-content theme.json settings to the post editor preview. This should be fixed in WordPress 6.1, which is scheduled for November 1st.

Beaumont offers 11 different style variations in the Styles panel that can totally change the look of a website – a few different yellows, several dark variations, and several subtle variations by default. Users can select one and further customize the background, text, links, etc.

Since this theme is geared towards writers, it includes seven different layouts for blog archives, meaning users can opt for a more visual display by using featured images or keep it simple by displaying only featured images. securities. These different loops are grouped together as template parts and can be edited later using the site editor.

Watch the demo to see how all the pieces work together, or check out early adopter Matt Report to see how a podcast uses the theme.

Beaumont would work well as a blog, writing portfolio, or resume site, but, thanks to the vast world of blocks, it could also be used as a base for almost any other type of website. Anders Norén hit another home run with this theme. It’s simple and elegant with only 16K of CSS and no JavaScript, visually distinct from its other themes, and designed for readability. Download it for free from WordPress.org.

Infoblox report shows smishing in websites built on WordPress https://themekiller.me/infoblox-report-shows-smishing-in-websites-built-on-wordpress/ Wed, 14 Sep 2022 05:52:30 +0000 https://themekiller.me/infoblox-report-shows-smishing-in-websites-built-on-wordpress/ Smishing has been identified as a new and sophisticated method of obtaining personal and financial information from victims using fake forms on fraudulent websites.

Smishing has been identified as a new and sophisticated method of obtaining personal and financial information from victims using fake forms on fraudulent websites. Smishing is a cyberattack tactic that combines SMS (short message service, commonly referred to as SMS) and phishing.

A wave of VexTrio attacks using the Dictionary Domain Generation Algorithm (DDGA) has infected many websites built on WordPress, which in turn infect visitors to these sites with malware or spyware by running Javascript code.

Infoblox Inc., a leader in secure, cloud-managed network services, has released a new edition of the company’s Quarterly Cyber ​​Threat Report, a security intelligence report that compiles top threats and security vulnerabilities detected across the over the previous three months on a quarterly basis. base worldwide. Among the key findings of this report, which covers the months of April to June 2022, are:

Smishing – a strategy that combines SMS and phishing

Smishing messages are sent by bad actors to trick victims into revealing private information including passwords, identity data, and financial data. The messages usually include an encouragement for the recipient to click on a link, which may be for a site that hosts malware or a page that attempts to convince the user to submit data through a form.

Actors routinely used spoofed sender numbers in text messages to evade spam filters. However, messages that are not automatically detected by the mobile operator can be stopped by blocking the sender’s phone number. In response, threat actors continue to evolve their own techniques. In a well-known version of mobile phone spoofing, a recipient receives a text message or phone call from someone who appears to be in the area near the recipient. Users are hesitant to block local phone numbers for fear that it will also block legitimate phone calls and messages.

Spoofing the recipient’s phone number is another step forward by actors to overcome spam filtering and blocking and to convince users to click on links embedded in messages.

Prevention and Mitigation

Smishing messages are a common method for sending phishing links. Infoblox recommends the following precautions to avoid smishing attacks:

  • Always be suspicious of unexpected text messages, especially those that appear to contain financial or delivery correspondence, documents, or links.
  • Never click on URLs in text messages from unknown sources. In the campaign in question, the source was the recipient, who didn’t send the message, and that’s a red flag.

VexTrio DDGA Domains Spread Adware, Spyware and Scam Web Forms

Since February 2022, Infoblox’s Threat Intelligence Group (TIG) has been tracking malicious campaigns that use domains generated by a Dictionary Domain Generation Algorithm (DDGA) to run scams and distribute risky software, spyware, adware, potentially unwanted programs, and pornographic content. This attack is widespread and affects targets in many sectors.

VexTrio’s players make massive use of domains and the DNS protocol to run their campaigns. Actors exploit vulnerable WordPress websites as attack vectors to deliver fraudulent content to unaware website visitors. They do this by first detecting websites that have cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in WordPress themes or plugins and then injecting them with malicious JavaScript code. When victims visit these websites, they are directed to a landing web page that hosts fraudulent content, via one or more intermediate redirect domains that are also controlled by the actors. Additionally, in order to avoid detection, the actors have integrated several features into their JavaScript and require the following conditions from the user to trigger the redirect:

  • The user must visit the WordPress website from a search engine. For example, the referral URL might be https://www.google.com/.
  • Cookies are enabled in the user’s web browser.
  • The user has not visited a web page compromised by VexTrio in the last 24 hours.

Prevention and Mitigation

VexTrio mainly misuses vulnerable WordPress websites to deliver unwanted content to visitors. Embedding malicious JavaScript code into often-visited web blogs and other popular but vulnerable websites helps actors expand their reach. Infoblox assesses that the VexTrio DDGA campaign could serve as a delivery vector for other cybercrime syndicates and thus enable follow-up attacks. Infoblox recommends the following actions to protect against this type of attack:

  • Disabling JavaScript completely on web browsers, or enabling it only for trusted sites, can help mitigate attacks employed by VexTrio actors, who capitalize on the use of JavaScript to perform their tasks.
  • Consider using an ad-blocking program to block certain pop-up ad-enabled malware. In addition to an ad blocker, consider using the NoScript web extension, which allows JavaScript and other potentially dangerous content to run only from trusted sites to reduce the attack surface available for actors.
  • Implementing Infoblox RPZ feeds in firewalls can stop actors connecting at the DNS level because all components described in this report (compromised websites, intermediate redirect domains, DDGA domains, and landing pages) require the DNS protocol. TIG detects these components daily and adds them to Infoblox’s RPZ feeds.
  • Using Infoblox’s Threat Insight service, which performs real-time flow analysis on live DNS queries, can provide high-security coverage and protection against DGA-based as well as DDGA-based threats.

The Newly Observed Domains and the Ukrainian War

The wave of registration and observation of new domains related to the Russian invasion of Ukraine has been over for some time. Nonetheless, Infoblox research shows that low levels of new phishing campaigns, donation scams, and other suspicious activity are still being launched in an attempt to capitalize on the Ukraine crisis.

Overall, the data shows that the volume of legitimate domains exceeds that of malicious websites in the Infoblox environment. The rise of the newly observed domains began in the first week after the invasion (early March). For several weeks, many legitimate sites have been created to help bring relief to the Ukrainian people; however, cyber threat actors and scammers have also taken advantage of the crisis, creating their own sites and adding to the volume of newly observed domains. At the end of March (week 13), the number of domains began to decrease and the number of newly observed domains in the Infoblox data began to stabilize. The most recent trends, from April (week 14), show that on average the number of newly observed domains (legitimate and suspicious/malicious) continues to be higher – albeit slightly – compared to before the invasion.

Although the number of malicious domains is decreasing, users should remain vigilant. Based on previous experience, bad actors will continue to exploit individuals through email, malicious ads, and other means for as long as they can. For comparison, while covid-related malware campaigns peaked in 2020, we are still seeing them two years later. Users should carefully review donation requests from organizations they do not know and should not click on links from unknown sources.

Mohammed Al-Moneer, Regional Director, META at Infoblox, says, “Our report shares research on many dangerous malware threats. Effective security depends on timely and up-to-date threat intelligence. Using the tools included in Infoblox BloxOne Threat Defense, security teams can collect, normalize, and distribute highly accurate, multi-source threat intelligence to strengthen the entire security stack. Additional features can help SecOps speed up threat investigation and response by up to two-thirds.

WordPress Announces 10 Style Variation Picks for Twenty Twenty-Three Theme – WP Tavern https://themekiller.me/wordpress-announces-10-style-variation-picks-for-twenty-twenty-three-theme-wp-tavern/ Thu, 08 Sep 2022 21:21:15 +0000 https://themekiller.me/wordpress-announces-10-style-variation-picks-for-twenty-twenty-three-theme-wp-tavern/ The WordPress design team has announced the winners of the challenge to create a styling variation for the upcoming Twenty Twenty-Three (TT3) default theme.

The WordPress design team has announced the winners of the challenge to create a styling variation for the upcoming Twenty Twenty-Three (TT3) default theme. The organizers received 38 submissions from 19 contributors (some submitted multiple variations) from eight countries.

Given the wide range of color combinations and typography, TT3 is gearing up to be a vehicle for a diverse set of styles from the WordPress design community. The submissions included creative variations for all sorts of design moods – dark with high contrast, bright yellow with a smaller universal font size, eggplant gradient background, and many more.

Automattic’s design director, Channing Ritter, posted the selections that were selected to ship with Twenty Twenty-Three:

“These variations were selected with the goal of presenting the most radical set of variations possible – so in many ways we were looking at what would work best as a collection versus selecting our favorite standalone submissions,” Ritter said.

The selections are not in their final form. Contributors will continue to iterate on them, under the guidance of design team leads, until the WordPress 6.1 beta period begins on September 20.

“Some of the suggested changes might be a bit ambitious, but let’s keep pushing to see how well we can do each of these variations,” Ritter said.

Submissions that have not been chosen to ship with TT3 may still have a path to inclusion through an official child theme of the default theme. Contributors discussed how this might work and closed the issue in favor of creating a separate project after TT3 launch.

“I especially like the idea of ​​continuing to create style variations beyond those that come with TT3,” said Automattic sponsored contributor Sarah Norris. “I think this is a great opportunity to introduce people to block themes and building variants, with the help of the community and experienced block-themers. It also provides a space to test the PR of Gutenberg, in the same way as emptytheme is currently in use, but with more obstinate settings enabled.

“I’m not sure if this is part of the current TT3 project, and in my opinion, it would be best to launch this initiative soon after the launch of TT3.”

In the meantime, the contributors plan to refine the selected variations, and the child theme project can continue without affecting the theme’s current timeline.

Check out the announcement to see each of the selected variants in more detail.

WordPress theme author Anders Norén is back with a new minimal block theme for blogs and personal websites. Björk is the 129th block theme to enter the directory and Norén’s 25th free WordPress theme. It follows the release of Poe, a portfolio-style theme, less than two months ago.

Although Norén has said he is a fan of the Icelandic singer, his new theme is named after his favorite tree. Björk is the Swedish name for birch.

“Birches are incredibly resilient, which is why you can find them closer to the tree line on the Swedish fjäll than any other type of tree,” Norén said. “They are also very pretty to look at.”

The theme’s default style certainly has a birch-like appearance with its white background and use of Albert Sans, a Google font designed by Danish typeface designer Andreas Rasmussen who was inspired by the typographical characteristics of Scandinavian architects and designers. at the beginning of the 20th century.

Desktop viewers will see a sticky side menu for quick navigation links. This disappears on smaller screens in favor of a hamburger menu.

“Björk has a very classic blog theme structure, with a sidebar on the left and content on the right,” Norén said in a post introducing the new theme. “You’ve seen hundreds of these WordPress themes before – I’ve published about six of them myself – but with the advent of block themes, everything old is new again. lots of block themes with this structure in the themes directory.

Björk includes seven different theme styles, in addition to the default style, which can instantly change the look of the website.

Norén has also included over 15 block templates, which allow users to mix and match and quickly create their own layouts for the homepage or other pages. Templates include designs for featured items with image, title, paragraph and button, testimonials section, multiple hero templates, call to action templates, and more.

When you first install and activate the theme, you get all the layouts in place, including the homepage. This makes it easy for users to get started by simply replacing content or rearranging it to suit their unique needs. Check out the demo to see approximately what it will look like when installed.

Björk was built using Norén’s Davis Blocks theme as a base, the same framework used to build Poe, his latest version. It’s a small package, with only 500 lines of CSS and no JavaScript.

Björk is available as a free download on WordPress.org or via the “Add a new theme” screen in the administration.

“The site editor has really come a long way in a short time,” Norén said. “The most noticeable difference is that I’m having a lot more fun building block themes now than when I released Tove, my first block theme, a year ago. With the features coming to WordPress 6.1 in October is only from here.

WordPress has released an update containing bug fixes and security fixes to address three vulnerabilities rated as severe to medium.

Updates may have been downloaded and installed automatically, so it is essential to check if the website has been updated to version 6.02 and if everything is still working normally.

Bug fixes

The update contains twelve fixes for the WordPress core and five for the block editor.

One notable change is an improvement to the template directory, which is intended to help theme authors only serve templates related to their themes.

The goal of this change is to make it more attractive for theme authors to use and present a better user experience for editors.

“Many theme authors want all core and remote patterns disabled by default using remove_theme_support (‘core-block-patterns’). This ensures that they only serve patterns relevant to their theme to clients. /clients.

This change will make the Pattern Directory more attractive/usable from the theme author’s point of view.

Three security fixes

The first vulnerability is described as a high severity SQL injection vulnerability.

A SQL injection vulnerability allows an attacker to query the database that underpins the website and add, view, delete, or modify sensitive data.

According to a report by Wordfence, WordPress 6.02 fixes a high vulnerability SQL injection vulnerability, but the vulnerability requires administrative privileges to execute.

Wordfence described this vulnerability:

“The WordPress Link feature, formerly known as “Bookmarks”, is no longer enabled by default on new WordPress installations.

Older sites may still have the feature enabled, which means millions of legacy sites are potentially vulnerable, even if they are running newer versions of WordPress.

Fortunately, we found that the vulnerability requires administrative privileges and is difficult to exploit in a default configuration.

The second and third vulnerabilities are described as Stocked Cross-Site Scripting, one of which would not affect the “vast” majority of WordPress publishers.

JavaScript Moment date library update

Another vulnerability has been fixed, but it was not part of WordPress core. The vulnerability affects a JavaScript data library called Moment used by WordPress.

The JavaScript Library vulnerability has been assigned a CVE number and details are available in the US Government’s National Vulnerability Database. It is documented as a bug fix on WordPress.

What to do

The update should automatically roll out to sites starting with version 3.7.

It may be useful to check if the site is working properly and that there are no conflicts with the current theme and installed plugins.

Before you start building your e-commerce website, you need to be clear about what your business needs for website building. Here are some reasons why you should sell online.

More people are buying online

Shopping online is convenient and safe, and during the recent pandemic, e-commerce sales jumped 40% in 2020, the first year of the pandemic. The easy availability of smartphones also means you can shop from anywhere, at any time of the day. So it’s obvious that people will continue to buy long after the pandemic is over.

Setting up an e-commerce storefront is cheaper

When you compare it to a physical store, setting up an e-commerce storefront is much cheaper. This is partly because physical stores incur multiple fixed costs such as rent, electricity bills, employee payments, infrastructure maintenance, etc.

An e-commerce website can increase offline sales

Online and offline stores don’t have to be mutually exclusive. They can complement each other well when you tell people about your physical store on your e-commerce website and install app kiosks in your stores.

For example, Amazon is now opening physical stores after the resounding success of its online e-commerce website.

Create unique customer experiences

Personalizing experiences and services is much easier online. You can use different media including video, audio, stories, customer reviews, and personalized messaging to create an experience your customers cherish and share with others.

Start selling immediately

Once the website is ready, all you need to do is set up payment processing and list your products on the website to start selling. There’s no need to wait for new employees, stockpile inventory, or generate enough marketing buzz. You are in business the moment you put your website online.

Eliminate expensive costs with dropshipping

When you think of retail, the first thing that comes to mind is sourcing, holding, and managing inventory. However, if you choose a dropshipping business model, you don’t need to maintain and manage inventory on your own. You can read all about dropshipping here.

Conclusion

An e-commerce site is your online brand identity. You need to make sure to build it in a way that makes it easier for customers to discover your brand. Also remember that it is not possible to get everything right the first time. Keep learning from your experiences, be prepared to experiment and make changes if necessary.

Block themes are expanding to include more niches beyond simple one-column blogging themes, and Catch Themes is one of the companies at the forefront of this new frontier. Pentatonic, the company’s latest release on WordPress.org, is a free theme created for bands and musicians.

The theme uses basic blocks to create sections that showcase the work of creative artists of all kinds. For example, the header uses the Cover block with a gradient image with the focal point picker set to a certain point. The site’s identity and navigation are organized within a group, followed by a Media and Text block header section.

During installation and activation, Pentatonic provides a good experience for users. Clicking “Customize” brings users to the site editor with the home page loaded, almost identical to the demo of the free version.

Pentatonic comes with 17 block designs that users can easily mix and match to create their own unique pages. These include templates for About Us, Call To Action, Featured Content, Sidebar, Music Podcasts, 404 Header, Archive Header, Default Footer, Footer With three columns, Default header, Recent with blog sidebar, Post header, Header with buttons, etc. . Each section of the home page can be recreated using a template on other pages or repeated/rearranged on the home page.

The theme also includes 11 templates and eight template parts, allowing users to customize 404 page, unique blog posts, search results, post content, and more.

The pro version of the theme includes access to custom blocks, such as playlist, case study, skill bar, masonry, pop-up video, and more. The pro version demo features a sticky music player at the bottom of the page, promotional pop-up video, podcast playlist, and other custom media add-ons bands and artists may need.

Pentatonic has been optimized to respond well to all screen sizes and looks as good on mobile as it does on desktop. The theme is available for free at WordPress.org where you can preview all the templates and see a preview of the whole theme in action which looks very similar to the demo hosted on Catch Themes.
