Joomla is one of the most popular content management systems (CMSs) out there that’s designed for power users.

The White Screen of Death is a pesky WordPress error that displays a blank white screen on your site’s front-end without giving you any information about what’s causing the error. It can affect parts of your site (a few posts or pages) or your entire website – including the admin panel.
Fortunately, there’s a systematic way to tackle the most common causes of the White Screen of Death (or, WSoD) even when you have no idea of what went wrong. What’s even better is that you don’t have to be particularly tech savvy to fix the issue on your own.
When your blog posts exceed a few dozen entries, it’s time to rethink your navigation. One way to improve its usability is to add numeric pagination to your blog page.
Adding pagination to your website has a lot of clear benefits. It makes it easier for spiders to crawl deep into your site’s architecture and can drastically improve your page load times.

You’re new to WordPress and your site doesn’t seem to be working the way it should. The first thing that crosses your mind is: How do I fix this? You start searching different variations of your query on Google and posting questions on support forums but still aren’t able to find a fix.
Thankfully, there are a number of high-authority sites and forums where you can get support for your theme, plugin, or general WordPress query. Since WordPress is an open-source platform, most of the people behind the scenes helping you out aren’t part of an official WordPress support team.
Need to disable automatic updates in WordPress? If you’ve ever used Windows 10, you’re probably familiar with how frustrating automatic updates can sometimes be.

If you’re like most people, you intuitively know that when something’s broken… it ain’t good. A broken TV? Bad. A broken car? Worse. But what about broken links in WordPress?
One of the best ways to deliver more value to your readers is by linking out to high-authority resources from your articles.
