Personalization can be a powerful tool for driving engagement and improving user experience. But what is it and what are the challenges in implementing it?
While the many benefits of WordPress are well-known — it’s free and open-source, it features a user-friendly content editor, it makes SEO easy — WordPress is plagued by misconceptions about its perceived weaknesses.
Earlier this year, the Kaiser Family Foundation approached Alley with a challenge: the foundation needed a way to display state-level data on a map, with an accompanying table, in a format that was easy to use and embeddable within posts across their WordPress site.
We first launched our in-browser prototyping platform, Huron, eight months ago and it’s become instrumental in streamlining our design and development process. We’re proud to announce our latest version (2.1.1) is now available on npm as an open-source tool.
Among the many reasons that Alley has adopted Webpack for our frontend builds is its asynchronous loading. This reduces page rendering times across all pages of a large, complex site like Brookings.edu. But it comes with a caveat: Unless filenames change with each build, an old file might stay cached indefinitely on a CDN.
Alley Interactive developers have come up with a simple SEO solution for WordPress sites: The WP SEO plugin, now approved for WordPress VIP and available for anyone to use. We asked Alley’s David Herrera to explain the power of this plugin.
