    Buenas, mi empresa se dedica a los servicios auxiliares, por lo que no vendo un producto como tal
    Pero quería crear en mi web como un estilo de bolsa de trabajo pero, al mismo tiempo, cobrar a misclientes, que puedan ver sus facturas, etc.
    Para hacer un ejemplo visual te dejo un link: http://familiafacil.es/?utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=RBESAFamiliaF%C3%A1cil

    WordPress really is not intuitive for designers. This is still for programmers, you can’t control the look of the site as a designer would like.

    If I get WordPress, aside from using the CMS to build pages, can I also upload .html, .css and .js files I created myself to WordPress? For example, if I build a small application or portfolio project myself, using raw code, (like a responsive page, or small game, or gallery page, etc.) can I then upload it to WordPress? Or am I limited to using only the WordPress CMS to build pages and that’s it?

    Some good information there but I always think how can I apply this knowledge in a practical and fast way

    Well I got my hands on a WordPress plug-in that is both free and at the same time incredibly powerful

    You can get it here and if you have a WordPress website then I urge you to consider using it:  http://instafunnel.net/instant_content_and_authority/?r=357

    My question is how damn powerful do you think this could be and what use cases would you have in mind to really leverage this plug-in?

    For example I could take a BBC or Wikipedia article on nutrition or recipes and then put in a pop-up or link to a diet book or recipe book that I am selling. Am I missing something here or is this an incredibly useful tool with loads of potential?

    Great series and your voice is very easy to listen to. I have a question. Not sure if it was in one of your videos but I think I heard you say that WordPress is available with a drag and drop plugin WYSIWYG and I think you even mentioned the name of it but I missed it and cannot find it now. Can you tell me what this plugin is please. I am very interested in it.
