Engage with WordPress. It’s fun!

It's my weekly blog about WordPress, technology and life. Mostly WordPress.

So how is your Fall going?

By Dave Bell | October 14, 2016

Engaging and enjoyable I trust. I am very grateful for the lack of humidity. And the crispy walking weather. I even took a 12 hour road trip to Chatham. The one in New York. Nothing but rolling hills, open space and trees, along with farms. Many of them. A nice change. I planned on having…

Happy Labor Day to my faithful readers!

Happy Labor Day to you!

  Rock on. Dave

And the Summer of 2016 is a wrap…

1The good weather is not over. Far from it. We have some of the best weather on planet earth coming right up. But the overloaded traffic and long lines are all but over. Back to school, back to work. I’ll be at Ollie’s for lunch tomorrow. For the very last time 🙁 Ollie’s is sold…

CapeLearnWP.com is being re-purposed…

By Dave Bell | August 19, 2016

into a site that provides links to various WordPress professionals that have one thing in common. They offer help to beginner WordPress users. I have met most in person or on Twitter and have done business with most of them. WP101.com is up first. Owned and operated by Shawn Hesketh, I advise anyone starting out…

It is a jungle out there.

By Dave Bell | August 12, 2016

And for once, I am not speaking of the humidity. Although that too 🙂 I am speaking of the wide range of choices for accepting any type of payments online. It seems almost endless. PayPal, Stripe, WooCommerce, Braintree, Square, Shopify or eBay? When to choose which. And why. It seems that being involved in the…

Like I mentioned, it is all about ecommerce…

By Dave Bell | August 4, 2016

and this week I dove deep into the initial setup of an eCommerce website. In this case, a WordPress and WooCommerce website. More specifically, this exact website you are on. My own. Decades of experience have taught me that it is always better to experiment on my own website, verses a client’s website. Yup, that…

Ecommerce, WooCommerce, WordPress, Square oh my!

By Dave Bell | July 29, 2016

Every now and then a game changer plugin for WordPress arrives on the scene. The WooCommerce plugin is certainly an example of that. Think of WooCommerce as the ecommerce arm of WordPress. Doing business online. That’s what it is all about. And since after a short period of time WooCommerce is used by 37% of…

Summer heat, need cool air now…

By Dave Bell | July 22, 2016

How was your week? Mine was good with a strong dash of humidity. I spent much of the week researching a great website company called weebly.com. A funny name. But they are super serious about great websites. And it might appeal to you. True “one stop shopping”. Anything you might need your website to do…

OK, here is the new master plan…

By Dave Bell | July 15, 2016

I am going to completely refresh this website: veryhappycats.com – you will be completely amazed. This is my cat Happy’s very own website and she is not pleased. She wants more sales. I do not blame her. I have entered into negotiations to obtain at wholesale what we consider the best cat toy ever. It…

Learning WordPress is fun!

It’s official… Cape Learn WP is done and gone.

By Dave Bell | July 9, 2016

  Cape Learn WP was my first real foray into what is called a membership site. Not to be confused with a subscription site. Confused already? Yeah, I get that. I will let my friend Chris Lema delve further in to that arena. He is really smart with all that stuff. Check him out. You…

Let’s talk about your website…

By Dave Bell | June 30, 2016

How is your website holding up? If you have not changed your website in years, does your business really need a website? Is the form on your website sending responses to the correct person/employee? Or is it sending to someone that left the company months ago? No detail is unimportant. Here at CapeWP I am…

Ecommerce is where it is at.

By Dave Bell | June 24, 2016

I have always been fascinated by this. So I took a deep dive into some different ecommerce options on the modern day web. There are really many different options. The one I took a good close look at is called Shopify. The reason I looked at and did a full demo of Shopify is because…
