Last week, our team created few free plugins and this is one them. Many users show post categories in the sidebar. Often, they are just 5-15 categories. Wouldn’t it be cool to show a nice little icon beside the category name that goes with it?
This little WordPress Category Icon plugin does exactly that. With this plugin, you will be able to show a category icon in the sidebar and before the category title in your WordPress website.
And best of all, this is an absolutely free plugin.
One of our customer asked “whether this theme supports Google AMP?” in a pre-sales question. Which makes us curious and digging into it, it looks like Google AMP is targeted towards mostly the content-only, news and article content so that the user can read the news or article faster and not for the content and images rich, dynamic pages.
AMP means Accelerated Mobile Pages, in other words, it strips down all the design and functionality to show content only page to the user as soon as possible. Certainly this means it is not built for advanced WordPress sites with heavy content.
However, what if you want to use Google AMP on a regular WordPress blog? We looked at the possible options and there exists an official WordPress plugin that lets enables google AMP on your site but only for blog posts. It wouldn’t work for different post types & taxonomies, pages or category archives.
We believe WordPress pages and WordPress posts under Taxonomies should be able to use power of Google AMP.

We have asked Juan a few questions about his project of building this comprehensive and successful website. Juan was kind enough to spare some of his valuable time to share with us some of the aspects of his success story with his Guadalajara portal.
The main purpose for developing the MiPuntoMap was to offer the people of Guadalajara, the facility of a city portal, where they could find everything related to entertainment, culture, etc. at one stop. This saves them from the drudgery of going through different sites and finding the relevant content.
Thanks to the google maps integration and location based facilities of the Templatic Directory template. MiPuntoMap is currently selling movie tickets, theater and concerts, as well as codes discounts for hotels, cruises, tours and travels. This provides the opportunity to attract a larger audience.

Introduce Yourself & Your Site
My name is Gerasimos Kamplies and I am the owner and founder of bet-gate.com.
Bet-gate.com is an online gambling directory in English language located in Greece. Here you can find many remarkable websites related to sports betting, casino and poker, submitted in proper categories and sub categories.
There is also a specific category with gambling affiliates programs for those webmasters who have owned a gambling website and want to gain some extra income from it.
In September of 2005 I created my first website bet-gate.gr, a greek sports betting directory. About 15 months later added categories with casino and poker links. The website was fully translated in English but as it was growing rapidly I decided to create a new gambling directory in English language with it’s own domain name. And then was born bet-gate.com in 2008.
