This year has been quite interesting on a personal level. Turned out as a year to learn how to live with transitions and a year where preparation and sacrifice has got a special meaning.

Once our video is exported as mp4, we load it  [ Read More ]

Have you wonder how to add a simple Slider to your WordPress? The easiest way is to add a widget area and include the Weptile Image Slider Widget Plugin. This is a responsive, easy, lightweight image slider widget that you can also include on any page, sidebar or post. It’s not only easy to add images to it, but arranging them is just a drag-drop move, and images, since they are part of the media gallery, can have their independent links, and to change the images position on the slider, you just need to drag them to the place you want. You can configure the entire slide through the widget, and it includes 16 widget settings plus 16 animation options and  [ Read More ]
