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.)

Beaver Builder is one of my all-time favorite additions to the WordPress ecosystem (see our full Beaver Builder review here, or our full review of all WordPress page builders). It’s the first drag-and-drop WordPress layout builder I can really recommend, and use without resentment on my own clients’ sites. Given how helpful a good WordPress layout builder is, that feels a bit like saying it’s the first working teleporter—a big deal.

“Everyone’s a critic,” as the saying goes, and nowhere more so than around Gutenberg, the upcoming content editor overhaul slated for WordPress 5.0.

That’s right: meta box drama.

I Built a Site with Squarespace, and I Liked It
In my work as a WordPress developer, Squarespace feels a bit like a gathering storm: something I’m dimly aware of, that may become a serious problem eventually—but hopefully not for a while.
