The most important information on the e-Privacy Regulation

E-Privacy Regulation: What's in store for us?

Although the e-privacy regulation will probably not be adopted until 2020, it is already casting its shadow. But don't panic: Just as the world did not end when GDPR came into force, contrary to all predictions, this will not happen when the e-privacy regulation comes into force. To prepare you for the new regulation, lawyer Mario Steinberg has an overview of the current and future legal situation regarding the use of tracking tools as well as valuable tips.


WooCommerceReports in Slack
You want to check your sales figures without logging into the backend of your store? No problem - Ian Poulson from Delicious Brains shows you step by step how to create your own Slack app that gives you reports for different time periods with a simple Slack command like "/woo month" WooCommerce.

Less waste at WCEU
The organizers of WordCamp Europe have teamed up with Zero Waste e.V. to reduce the waste generated during the event. We also pay strong attention to sustainability, e.g. in the form of green electricity, compensation payments for our CO2 emissions, environmentally friendly giveaways, recyclable materials and avoiding waste. As a sponsor of the WCEU, we are thus very pleased with these efforts.

GutenbergCreate blocks without JS
Birgit Pauli-Haack from Gutenberg Times tests three plugins that allow you to create your own Gutenberg block for your individual needs without JavaScript. As a test case, she creates a "team block" with each of the plugins, which displays photos and contact details of people and can thus be used for a company page, for example. You can read the conclusion of her test here.

Real-life colors
Coming up with beautiful color palettes is not that easy. A British agency had a creative idea for this: the Found Color project publishes photos whose motif shows an interesting color combination - including the corresponding color codes. The result is an archive of great color combinations that were neither generated by algorithms nor based on classic rules of color theory.

Are you unsure whether one of your subpages or a certain blog article is well received by your visitors? This question can be answered relatively quickly with a look at your Google Analytics data. The SEO experts at Yoast explain how you can analyze the performance of a single subpage and draw the right conclusions.
