Wallace Inline: Inline Text and Image Editing for Beaver Builder
Wallace Inline is a new premium extension for Beaver Builder that caught my eye while I was browsing around today. It makes text and image editing very quick and intuitive on a website front-end: rather than coming up inside Beaver Builder’s text editor, text is simply editable inline—hence the name—so you simply start typing, and your text content changes. (If the difference between “front-end” and “inline” confuses you as much as it did me, there’s a good Live Demo feature on their sales page that lets you try the extension for yourself.)

Color inspiration is a big, practical part of web design, and ColorHexa is the best tool for it I’ve seen in a bit.
Unsplash: Beautiful, Free, Unrestricted-Use Images
I should spend more time talking to designers. An excellent designer I’m working with on a few projects noticed me Googling for a sample image to put into a new site design, and told me about Unsplash. It’s a major step up.
ASCII WordPress Template Hierarchy
I talked briefly to John Blackbourn at WordCamp US about WPHierarchy.com. One of the struggles we’re having with the site is that it’s kind of hard to for me (as a non-designer) to reflow the diagram to work well on mobile. John offered some good potential solutions to that from a more coherent design perspective, which I very much appreciated.
Cool New Plugin: “Admin Menu in Frontend”
Here’s one of the coolest, and most literal, plugin ideas I’ve seen in a while. Admin Menu in Frontend is a new plugin that simply puts the left-side menu from the wp-admin area onto the frontend of your site when you’re logged-in, saving you lots of clicks.

Some Common Mobile Device Widths
Here is some very useful information on an oddly outdated-looking page. It gives device widths for a range of iPhones, iPads, Samsung phones, and so on.
Staying Focused with Forest
Sometimes, the desire to fiddle with the smartphone is too strong. Sometimes you need a little help avoiding that temptation. That’s where the Forest app comes in.
