“How does one become a butterfly?” Pooh asked pensively. “You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar,” Piglet replied. “You mean to die?” asked Pooh. “Yes and no,” he answered. “What looks like you will die, but what’s REALLY you will live on.” – A.A. Milne

Photocrati Theme Widget Areas

Photocrati Theme Widget AreasYour photography website is extremely personal, so you need the ability to customize settings easily and place content in many locations.

So we decided to add a variety of new and very useful widget areas into the theme.

Many of these new widgets are included in the new homepage template. However, many are also for posts, pages and globally.

Lets start with what’s available for the homepage first, and then posts and pages and we will finish with the global widget areas.

Photocrati Widget Areas

Homepage Widgets

As you can see from the screenshot above, there are 4 new homepage widgets, for use with the new homepage page template.

Each of these is its own level from top to bottom. Meaning homepage widgets 1 will be on top of homepage widgets 2, which is on top of homepage widgets 3.

Within each widget area you can place multiple widgets. Those widgets will be divided to multiple columns across the screen, and will adjust to single columns on mobile devices.

This works similar to how our footer widgets have always worked.

Post Widgets

Next up are posts. There is the ability to add content above and below every blog post you publish. You can add optins or other calls to action. Or company news, or really anything you want seen by your blog readers.

Page Widgets

Similar to the post widgets, we added the ability to add widgets above and below page content.

Global Widgets

The global widgets are a mix of multiple locations. First is a widget area directly above the Footer Widgets, so if you wanted multiple rows of footer widgets this is how you could make that happen.

Then there are the header widgets, both above and below. These are great places to put content like social follow buttons, or news you want visible to everyone who visits your site.

Last is a menu widget area for when you utilize the theme’s left sided header option.

Widget Maps

We created a series of basic widget maps so you can get a better idea for where each one is located.

photocrati-theme-homepage-widgets photocrati-theme-page-widgets photocrati-theme-post-widgets

Widgets Galore

We recommend experimenting to see which widgets you like the most.

Like always, if you have any questions, need assistance or have feature requests, please contact our support team.

We hope you love the new widget areas as much as we do!

Photocrati Theme Blog Templates

New Photocrati Theme Blog TemplatesOne thing that we have learned over the years is just how personal each individual website is to each individual photographer.

Up until now the Photocrati Theme had one blog layout.  We will call that Legacy, since that is what we are now calling it in the theme.

After a lot of research into what layouts photographers love the most, we decided to change and improve what our theme offers. So As of Photocrati Theme version 4.9, there are 7 blog templates, including Legacy.

Yes, you can now choose from the multiple blog template styles available within the theme. These include Masonry which automatically adjusts the background color based on your theme’s page color settings, Masonry Minimal, Image Wall which is great for when the Featured Images have no text , Grid, Featured Image Left, Featured Image Right and the standard Legacy blog template.

You also have the ability to choose what you want to happen if and when a Featured Image is not set for a blog post. The theme can either use a default image which you specify, or a gray gradient which is generic.

Depending on the template you pick, you can also choose to show the post excerpt or full content.

Like always in the Photocrati Theme, all blog template styles are full responsive for mobile devices.

Blog Templates for Photographers

Now that you have a summary of the new templates, here is a chance to check them out on working demos.

Simply click on the thumbnails to visit each demo.

Featured Image Top Blog Template

We decided not to show the legacy template as Photocrati customers are already used to that by now, and it’s the general blog template that the majority of WordPress themes use, which are not very image centric.

Changing Blog Templates

Changing blog templates is as easy as any other setting changes in the Photocrati Theme.

Open the Customize Theme tab in your WordPress admin area.

From there, go to the Body tab and the first section you will see is the blog template options.

Changing Blog Templates

We recommend experimenting to see which you prefer the most and which settings for each template you like the most.

Like always, if you have any questions, need assistance or have feature requests, please contact our support team.

We hope you love the new blog templates as much as we do!

Does Social Follow Count Really Matter?

Does Social Follow Count Really Matter?I decided to do a test of social reach with one post that had no links or pictures or videos. It was literally just text. Due to the various formats of each social network, I had to adjust the text for each. But here was the basic idea for what I posted:

This post is out of curiosity. Please comment or Like this if you see it. (This is a test to see the organic reach of Facebook without any photos or links)

The point was to see if social count really matters. The idea came to me because I noticed my Google Plus circle count was up to 56,173 at the time of this experiment. The number also fluctuates by a couple hundred each week.

Facebook also makes it public that less than 1% of your page followers will organically see you content, because they want you to pay for more.  In fact, a report showed that only 0.2% of page likes would organically seea post.

The results of this experiment was really interesting. Oddly enough, my Google Plus post received the most amount of activity, whereas my Facebook post was seen by a whole bunch of people and got very little activity. Twitter had the most amount of reads and a pretty good amount of actions.

Does Social Media Count Matter?

Here are the numbers and links to the original posts so you can see (aside from LinkedIn who doesn’t let you link to a profile post).

All of this data is based on 1 week letting the posts linger out in the world. They were all posted roughly at the same time of day. Around 10am EST, which is typically a good time for me to post as many of my followers have already gotten through their morning email catch ups.

My Thoughts On Social Count

Social Media isn’t what it was when it first became popular. Nowadays to get the reach you’d ideally want you would have to pay for it. For example, paying to get a Tweet seen by more followers, or a Facebook page’s post clicked on more.

That doesn’t necessarily say anything bad as that’s their business models.

All it means, in this sense, is that your social count doesn’t matter.  Don’t think that just by having hundreds of thousands of followers that your business is golden. That you’re doing well. That you can grow your business.  It just means you have more opportunity to pay to reach those people, for potentially very little money.

Check out this article from Kristi at Social Media Examiner about promoted posts on various social platforms, and how it helps reach your audience and potentially a greater audience.

Take Action

I definitely think it is important to build up your social followers.  But when you do, take action and throw some promotions at your followers. Don’t do it all the time, but do it sporadically and strategically. Include some advertising dollars and reach more, and quicker.
