How to Create a Lottie Widget Download Button

This guide to Lottie Animations will show you a creative way to use the Lottie widget as a button and set it to play an animation and download a free eBook upon clicking it.
You may have noticed lately that UI animations are gaining a lot of popularity in the web design domain. Web creators have many options for how to add animations to the websites they build. Personally, our favorite these days is using Lottie animations, even though alternative methods such as creating SVG animations, or vector animations using After Effects, are also great.
In terms of added value for the website visitor or interface user, animations are a great friend of user experience. Because user experience thrives on exciting micro-interactions and grabbing user attention in a subtle, elegant way, well-crafted animations are a game-changer when it comes to crafting a user-friendly interface.
If we narrow our discussion one step further, one of the most effective use-cases for animation design is animated bu..

What Is WordPress Multisite and How to Set up a Multisite Network

In this post, we'll explain how WordPress Multisite works and when you should use it. In addition, we'll show you step-by-step how to create your own WordPress Multisite network.
WordPress Multisite lets you create an entire network of sites powered by a single WordPress install.
You can either keep your network private and use it to power your own network of sites – like a local business creating a network site for each location. Or, you can make your network public and let people register and create their own sites in your network, like WordPress.com.
While each site gets its own dashboard, everything is powered by a single WordPress install and a single database, and individual site owners don’t have quite as much control.
In this post, we’ll share a little more about how WordPress Multisite works and when it is, or isn’t, a good idea to use Multisite. Then, we’ll show you step-by-step how to set up your own WordPress Multisite network.

How To Wireframe A Website in 3 Easy Steps

Wireframing is a fundamental part of every web creator’s design workflow. Learn how to wireframe your entire website from start to finish, and easily recreate it in Elementor.
Design Process 101: Wireframe vs. Mockup vs. PrototypeDesign terminology can be confusing, so let’s make sure we clarify all of the terms. Wireframes can be thought of as the architectural blueprint, a mockup as a colored, detailed drawing of the building, and the prototype of the display house. Each one serves a very different purpose, but they all share a common goal: to refine and solidify each stage of the design process.
Wireframe Like we discussed earlier in the post, a wireframe is a static, low-fidelity, visual representation of an interface using only simple shapes.
Eventually, some placeholders may evolve to real graphic elements or actual text so designers and developers can gain a better feel for how everything fits together.
Because wireframes are composed exclusively of black and white placeholder..

Monthly Template Kits #9: The Online Course Template Kit

Our online course template is a simple, modern and easy to use template kit that is versatile for all types of web creation needs. With the Corona crisis in mind, we’ve identified that many freelancers and entrepreneurs are looking to create online courses with the content they have, and need a simple yet effective way to do so.
As we mentioned in a recent blog post, creating online courses is a great way to monetize your website, especially in a time like this where many businesses are experiencing a dip in their earnings. But the template kit is in no way limited or exclusive to online courses. It can also be used for cooking videos, learning languages, parenting blogs, etc.
One thing to keep in mind is that this isn’t a learning management system (LMS). The difference here is that this is an education template, not an interactive course site that can be paid for on the course, set up users and so on. We did it with just Elementor and no other plugins/tools.
Here’s an explanation s..

The Best CSS Spinners & Loaders

Using modern CSS and HTML, it has never been easier to create loading spinners of any kind. This article showcases over 40 different techniques and styles of pure CSS3 animations for creating any CSS loader your website may need.
What is a CSS Loading Spinner?If you use a computer, you have already seen spinners multiple times. They are small animations used to indicate that something is loading and that the user needs to wait a bit. Your operating system, for example, displays a loading spinner when you launch a program. It indicates that the OS has understood the instruction and is in the process of launching the desired application. The user can then know that their request is being processed and that they just need to wait a bit for the program to be launched and operational.
On the Internet, spinners and loaders have always been used on sites and apps, with the same goal as their desktop counterparts. Years ago, loading spinners were mostly in the form of a .gif image. But as imag..
