20 Best Cheap WordPress Themes (Quality Budget Website Designs for 2020)

Understanding what customers value, how value is defined and what drives customers towards opting or refusing to commit to a certain purchase is a topic of high interest and research. Different customers value different things, and cost is by far the most popular factor taken into account when it comes to the decision of purchasing something.
As a customer, you’ll look to maximize the design value and functionality of a WordPress theme relative to its price. After all, building a website almost always means working to a budget.
On the other hand, when a theme author prices their work, there’s a risk of pricing a product too low. Pricing too low doesn’t always pass along a feeling of a “premium” product and can actually work against the seller.
Cheap (But High Quality) WordPress Themes on ThemeforestWe have put together a compilation of premium WordPress themes that we believe combine a fair share of features, sleek and beautiful designs, and are priced below the market average price p..

Traditionally, Python has been the de facto programming language for blockchain development. However, with the proliferation of this amazing technology, the development options have also increased — and Node.js has not been left behind.

2020-02-20T11:00:00+00:002020-02-20T17:35:16+00:00On Friday, January 2007 the world shrank into our palms as three revolutionary products — the iPod, a phone, and a breakthrough internet communicator — were unified to create the smartphones we know and love today.

The first iPhone introduced in 2007 marked the fall of Qwerty keypad and stylus. (Large preview)
iPhone was built to be comfortably used for one-handed operation, allowing for a smoother thumb movement across the screen.

Steve Jobs once said that the 3.5-inch screen is the “perfect size for consumers” and that larger screens are foolish.

(Large preview)
But it wasn’t until the turn of the last decade that phablets gained popularity owing to their bigger screens, so much so that less than 1% devices sold today had smaller than 4-inch screens.

90% of the smartphones sold today have bigger than 5-inch displa..

2020-02-19T11:00:00+00:002020-02-19T18:36:25+00:00The drag-and-drop API is one of the coolest features of HTML. It helps us implement drag-and-drop features in web browsers.

In the current context, we will be dragging files from outside the browser. On dropping the file(s), we put them on a list and display their names. With the files in hand, we could then perform some other operation on the file(s), e.g. upload them to a cloud server.

In this tutorial, we’ll be focusing on how to implement the action of dragging and dropping in a React application. If what you need is a plain JavaScript implementation, perhaps you’d first like to read “How To Make A Drag-And-Drop File Uploader With Vanilla JavaScript,” an excellent tutorial written by Joseph Zimmerman not too long ago.

2020-02-18T11:00:00+00:002020-02-18T18:09:32+00:00Before consumers sat in front of mobile devices for hours every day, there were numerous browsers and operating systems web designers had to contend with. So, it’s not like the concept of cross-browser testing is new.

Because web browsers don’t always render websites the same way or process data in the manner originally intended, cross-browser testing has long been an important part of web design and development. It’s the only way to ensure that what’s built behind the scenes is properly implemented on the frontend of a website.

But it can quickly become a tedious undertaking if you attempt to review every browser, OS and device on your own.

Fortunately, we’re living in an era where automation is king and we now have a better way of conducting cross-browser tests (and more frequently, too..

How Does WordPress Work?

What You'll Be CreatingIf you’re new to WordPress, or switching over from a static website, you might want to know exactly how WordPress works.
WordPress is a content management system, or CMS. It works by combining some core files, a database, files that you add or install, and a dashboard for Pat to manage the whole thing.
In this article, I’ll show you exactly how WordPress works and what that means for your new WordPress website.
The Components of WordPressWordPress consists of the following components:

WordPress Core: the core files that make up the WordPress installation. You need to install these before you can do anything else, as they make WordPress work.

The database: this is where all of your content and settings are stored. Again, WordPress can’t work without a database. If you install WordPress manually, you’ll also need to create a database. But if you use an auto-installer, that will do the job for you.

Extra files: on top of the Wordpress core files, you can ins..
