Interview with Adam Warner, FooPlugins Founder On Business Challenges & Useful Tips

Adam Warner - FooPlugins
I met Adam W. Warner at Pressnomics conference this year. Almost from the very beginning he became a good friend who not only taught me the basics of golf, but helped me learn a lot about the WordPress community. As of recently, SiteGround and FooPlugins, Adam’s company, partnered because we like and respect each others’ work. FooPlugins is a place where you can find multiple useful plugins for WordPress, but the most popular one is FooBox Media Lightbox for which SiteGround customers now get 20% discount.

So, I asked Adam a few questions on his business tactics and for some useful tips based on his experience as an entrepreneur with a WordPress-centered business that could be valuable to anyone who has their own online project.

Inspired by WordCamp London

WordCamp London 2013
The capital of the United Kingdom hosted its first WordCamp on November 23rd with an extra day for contribution on 24th. Given the vivid WordPress community and the large number of contributors across the Kingdom it was not surprising that more than 300 people visited the event to collaborate and brainstorm together over the state of WordPress.

Joomla World Gathered in Boston

Joomla World Conference 2013

Even though it’s freezing here in Boston, what kept us warm during the last weekend, apart from the really cool RedComponent swag hats, was the great community feeling that was all around Joomla World Conference 2013! The high quality of the event organization, the wide mix of the topics, the great speakers and the opportunity to meet so many of our favorite #jpositive people made us very happy to be there. We felt even prouder that SiteGround contributed to such an outstanding event by being its main sponsor.

Who updates your WordPress?

basie3

This question is getting quite tricky recently. Now that a native autoupdater is included in the WordPress itself (it is one of the major new features in WordPress 3.7, that was released last week), will you ever again be required to click manually on the upgrade link in the WordPress admin? What will happen with the SiteGround WordPress auto updater? And after all, is it you, is it SiteGround or is it WordPress itself that is going to be responsible for the updates? Well, to answer this question we were once again led by our principle: we make sure that the majority of our customers get the best option by default, but we allow the freedom to anyone to change the setup to whatever suits him/her best.

Serious Joomla Vulnerability found but we’ve got you Covered!

security

It is mid-summer now but security issues take no vacation. Actually they find the most inappropriate time to appear and make our lives more interesting, to say the least. On Thursday, 25 July the Joomla! Project announced the availability of Joomla 3.1.4/2.5.13 and many users upgraded their websites because the new releases provide tons of useful new features and bug fixes. One will think: job well done, it is time to hit the beach! But… On Thursday, 01 August, the Joomla! Project surprisingly  announced the immediate availability of Joomla! 3.1.5/2.5.14. Apparently not much time to sip exotic summer cocktails was allowed. The reason for this extremely short period between the two versions was that a critical level security issue was discovered just after the previous release and it had the potential to affect all Joomla! CMS versions. Yes, that’s correct  – we are talking about all the Joomla! sites out there. All versions are affected – 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3. Sounds scary, right? Not if you’re hosted on SiteGround servers!
