How to Use GIFs to Enhance Your Writing
GIFs are good for more than just memes. A GIF in the right place can convey additional context, and it can help you drive your point across in seconds. The challenge lies in knowing when and how to use GIFs to enhance your writing, without coming across as unprofessional.
In this article, we’ll talk about why you should be using GIFs, then go over five ways to use these animations to enhance your writing. Finally, we’ll go over how to create basic GIFs for your site.
Let’s get to it!
Why You Should Be Using GIFs on Your Website
Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) images have been around since 1987, and it’s easy to see why they haven’t gone out of style. Although GIFs are not the only image format that supports animation (you also have SVGs and WebP images), they’re pretty much the best when it comes to complex ones.
GIFs are essentially short recordings classed as images, using frames much like film would. In most cases, GIFs include shorter animations in a compact file size that makes them perfect for the web.
It’s this versatility that has made GIFs so incredibly popular during the past few years. As “meme” culture has hit the mainstream, so have formats such as GIFs and stickers.
In many ways, GIFs enable us to convey complex thoughts or emotions in a way that’s easy to understand, the same way emojis do. They...

4 Tools to See What Software a Website Was Built With (And Why You’d Want To)
At some point, we’ve all looked at a website and wondered how it’s been put together.  However, you may find the curiosity gets the better of you, leading you to seek out precisely what software a website was built with. The good news it that it’s easier than you might imagine. All you need is the right tools to help you dig into any page’s source code and figure out the stack it’s built on. In this article, we’ll talk about why you might want to do this and introduce you to four tools to help you answer the question.
Let’s dig in!
Why You’d Want to Know What Software a Website Was Built With
‘Building’ a website isn’t the kind of thing you ever finish doing. You’re probably looking for new features you can add or ways to improve the User Experience (UX) all the time. Websites evolve, both in terms of design and functionality. A lot of those changes comes from seeing other sites and thinking “Hey, that feature is cool!”. You may also have better knowledge of HTML and CSS compared to before, or even gained more insight into best design practices and accessibility.
In many cases, figuring a site’s makeup and structure can be complicated. After all, you don’t have access to their back end, and the developer has no obligation to give you any insight either.
Fortunately, you can get many...
Celebrating Pride Month: Perspectives on Identity, Diversity, Communication, and Change
Throughout June, we’ve published a series of Q&As at WordPress Discover featuring members of the Automattic team. These conversations explore personal journeys; reflections on identity; and diversity and inclusion in tech, design, and the workplace. Here are highlights from these interviews.

“In a World That Wants You to Apologize or Minimize Who You Are, Don’t.”

Gina Gowins is an HR operations magician on the Human League, our global human resources team. In this interview, Gina examines identity and language; communication and trust-building in a distributed, mostly text-based environment; and how her life experiences have informed her work.

I am particularly attached to the term queer as a repurposing of a word that was once used to isolate and disempower people — it was used to call people out as problematically different and other. From my perspective, there is no normal and no other; instead, we are all individual and unique. Identifying as queer allows me to take pride in my own individuality.Language changes over time, and how we use language shapes our values and thinking. In a culture that is aggressively governed by heteronormative values and where it can still be dangerous and lonely to be LGBTQIA+ — such as the United States, where I live — defining myself as queer is also my small act of defiance. It is a...
Editing and Enhancing Images in the WordPress Apps
The WordPress app on your Android or iOS device is your companion wherever you go. Manage your site, write and publish, and even add images to your posts — from anywhere you are. Oftentimes, the most engaging posts include visuals, like the photos you take on the go: pictures from last week’s walk, snapshots of your afternoon picnic, or portraits of the family with your puppy.

Have you ever needed to edit your images on your phone? Maybe the lighting wasn’t quite right, or the framing and composition were off. You can now make small retouches right in the WordPress app, like cropping, rotating, and even adding a filter to change the mood of your photos.

Editing photos

You now have the option to edit an image. If your photo is already in the post, tap it, then tap the icon in the top right corner and select Edit. When you’re finished editing the image, tap Done and the previous image will be replaced with the new one.

If you’re adding a new image, you can edit it before inserting it into the post. For example, add a Gallery Block, tap Add Media, and select Choose from your device. Select one or multiple photos, then in the bottom left corner, tap Edit. Edit your image, tap Insert, and that’s it!

If you’re offline, you can still add, edit, and insert new images to a post. 

Making small adjustments

Creating The Advanced Elegant Themes Dropdown Menu with Divi’s Theme Builder
Ever since Divi’s Theme Builder has come out, the way we design headers and footers throughout our websites with Divi has become easier than ever. Everything can be customized and you can obtain the exact menu you have in mind without ever having to leave the intuitive Divi environment. Now, at a certain point, you might have come across the Elegant Themes dropdown menu on our website. This dropdown menu is a more advanced type of mega menu that creatively combines icons, text and CTAs. This allows visitors to visually navigate through the different products that are provided. It also translates into a beautiful nested menu on smaller screen sizes.
In this tutorial, we’re going to show you how to recreate this advanced Elegant Themes dropdown menu inside Divi’s Theme Builder. We’ll combine the best of both worlds; we’ll use the built-in Divi elements to create the foundation of our dropdowns and combine it with some code that places the dropdowns inside the WordPress menu. You’ll be able to download the JSON file for free as well!
Let’s get to it.
Before we dive into the tutorial, let’s take a quick look at the outcome across different screen sizes.

Asking for Testimonials: When and How to Do It
Getting testimonials from happy customers and clients is an important part of building and scaling your business. Positive testimonials build brand awareness and social proof, and they’re a crucial marketing tool for business owners. Asking for testimonials is a fairly simple process, and it’s easy to implement as part of your customer journey and client acquisition.
There are several different ways you can ask for testimonials, and a number of places to display them once you have them. Depending on the type and nature of your business, you can request and display customer testimonials on your website, via social media (Facebook, LinkedIn), on Google, and more.
Before we can start gathering and displaying testimonials, we need to consider when and how to ask. The answers vary, so let’s look at a few possibilities for asking for testimonials.
When to Ask for Testimonials from Clients and Customers
The nature of your product or service dictates when you should ask your clients and customers for a testimonial. Here are three common times when it’s particularly easy to make the ask:

Immediately after services are rendered. If your service depends primarily on customer service and one-on-one, human interaction in the exchange, don’t be afraid to ask for a testimonial right away.
At the end of a project. As you’re wrapping up a project, go ahead and ask your client to leave...
