20 of the Lesser-known Tips and Tricks for Laravel Eloquent | Cyblance

Cyblance prepared a list of laravel eloquent tips [...]

20 of the Lesser-known Tips and Tricks for Laravel Eloquent

Eloquent ORM appears like a simple mechanism in the first instance. But upon taking a closer look, we come to discover that it withholds numerous functions that are semi-hidden. There are also a few lesser-known ways using which the functions can be put to the best possible avail. 

Only the best Laravel developers India may be aware of the tips and techniques mentioned in this article. Cyblance is the best Laravel development company for your Laravel Eloquent development requirements.

Let us consider some Laravel Eloquent ORM tricks in this article:

1. Increments and Decrements

Instead of this:

$article = Article::find($article_id);
$article->read_count++;
$article->save();

You can do this:

$article = Article::find($article_id);
$article->increment('read_count');

Also, these will work:

Article::find($article_id)->increment('read_count');
Article::find($article_id)->increment('read_count', 10); // +10
Product::find($produce_id)->decrement('stock'); // -1

2. XorY methods

Eloquent has several functions that are a combination of two methods. They may go as“please do X, otherwise do Y”.

Example 1 – findOrFail():

Instead of:

$user = User::find($id);
if (!$user) { abort (404); }

Do this:

$user = User::findOrFail($id);

Example 2 – firstOrCreate():

Instead of:

$user = User::where('email', $email)->first();
if (!$user) {
 User::create([
 'email' => $email
 ]);
}

Do just this:

$user = User::firstOrCreate(['email' => $email]);

3. Model boot() method

There is a spot known as the boot () in an Eloquent model. One can override the default behavior over here.

class User extends Model
{
 public static function boot()
 {
 parent::boot();
 static::updating(function($model)
 {
 // do some logging
 // override some property like $model->something = transform($something);
 });
 }
}

One of the most illustrated Eloquent examples involves setting the field value at the same time when one creates a model object. How does one go about generating a UUID field at the same time?

public static function boot()
{
 parent::boot();
 self::creating(function ($model) {
 $model->uuid = (string)Uuid::generate();
 });
}

4. Relationships involving conditions and ordering

The following is a typical way in which a relationship is defined:

public function users() {
 return $this->hasMany('App\User'); 
}

We can also add where or orderBy at this point.

Just as an instance, in case you require a specific relationship for privileged users, which is ordered by email as well, this can be achieved in the following way:

public function approvedUsers() {
 return $this->hasMany('App\User')->where('approved', 1)->orderBy('email');
}

5. Model properties: timestamps, appends, etc.

In the Eloquent model, there are some parameters which are in the format of properties of that particular class. The following are the most frequently used among them.

class User extends Model {
 protected $table = 'users';
 protected $fillable = ['email', 'password']; // which fields can be filled with User::create()
 protected $dates = ['created_at', 'deleted_at']; // which fields will be Carbon-ized
 protected $appends = ['field1', 'field2']; // additional values returned in JSON
}

There are some more as well.

protected $primaryKey = 'uuid'; // it doesn't have to be "id"
public $incrementing = false; // and it doesn't even have to be auto-incrementing!
protected $perPage = 25; // Yes, you can override pagination count PER MODEL (default 15)
const CREATED_AT = 'created_at';
const UPDATED_AT = 'updated_at'; // Yes, even those names can be overridden
public $timestamps = false; // or even not used at all

6. Find multiple entries

find() is among the most frequently used methods.

$user = User::find(1);

Interestingly, find () accepts multiple ids as an array

$users = User::find([1,2,3]);

7. WhereX

There’s an elegant way in which the function can be used. Turn this

$users = User::where('approved', 1)->get();

Into this:

$users = User::whereApproved(1)->get(); 

This exemplifies that a user can not just change the name of any field, but also use it as a suffix to where. It will work.

Let us now take a look at the pre-defined methods in Eloquent, which are related to date/time.

User::whereDate('created_at', date('Y-m-d'));
User::whereDay('created_at', date('d'));
User::whereMonth('created_at', date('m'));
User::whereYear('created_at', date('Y'));

8. Order by relationship

This particular trick is more towards the complicated side. Let us consider a unique instance. 

One has forum topics but intends to order them by the latest post. This is a frequent requirement in forums, wherein one prefers to have the recently updated posts towards the top.

To proceed with the requirement, a separate relationship is first described for the latest post over the topic.

public function latestPost()
{
 return $this->hasOne(\App\Post::class)->latest();
}

Then one uses the following code in the controller.

$users = Topic::with('latestPost')->get()->sortByDesc('latestPost.created_at');

9. Eloquent::when() – no more if-else’s

We characteristically write conditional queries with “if-else” in the following way.

if (request('filter_by') == 'likes') {
 $query->where('likes', '>', request('likes_amount', 0));
}
if (request('filter_by') == 'date') {
 $query->orderBy('created_at', request('ordering_rule', 'desc'));
}

But, when() may be used in a better way.

$query = Author::query();
$query->when(request('filter_by') == 'likes', function ($q) {
 return $q->where('likes', '>', request('likes_amount', 0));
});
$query->when(request('filter_by') == 'date', function ($q) {
 return $q->orderBy('created_at', request('ordering_rule', 'desc'));
});

This does not appear shortly. It does not appear more elegant either. But the passing of parameters is more powerful.

$query = User::query();
$query->when(request('role', false), function ($q, $role) { 
 return $q->where('role_id', $role);
});
$authors = $query->get();

10. Belongs to Default Models

Let’s suppose you have a post, which belongs to the Author and the Blade code:

{{ $post->author->name }}

What happens if the author is deleted, or is not set due to any reason? You’ll get an error message, which says something like ‘property of non-object’. Using the following method prevents the same.

{{ $post->author->name ?? '' }}

You can also do it at the Eloquent relationship level

public function author()
{
 return $this->belongsTo('App\Author')->withDefault();
}

In the example mentioned, an empty App\Author model is returned by the author() relation. This is the case when no author is attached to the post. We can also assign default property values to the default model.

public function author()
{
 return $this->belongsTo('App\Author')->withDefault([
 'name' => 'Guest Author'
 ]);
}

11. Order by Mutator

Let us suppose that the following is the case:

function getFullNameAttribute()
{
 return $this->attributes['first_name'] . ' ' . $this->attributes['last_name'];
}

When do you want to order this by full_name? , the following won’t work

$clients = Client::orderBy('full_name')->get(); // doesn't work

The resolution is simple. We order the results after getting them.

$clients = Client::get()->sortBy('full_name'); // works!

Here, notice the difference in the function name. It’s not orderBy. It’s a sortBy.

12. Default ordering in the global scope

What happens if one wants User::all () to always be ordered by name field? One can assign a global scope. Let us return to the boot () method, which we have already mentioned above.

protected static function boot()
{
 parent::boot();
 
 // Order by name ASC
 static::addGlobalScope('order', function (Builder $builder) {
 $builder->orderBy('name', 'asc');
 });
}

13. Raw query methods

There are times when one needs to add raw queries to Eloquent statements. A few functions are available for the same as well.

// whereRaw
$orders = DB::table('orders')
 ->whereRaw('price > IF(state = "TX", ?, 100)', [200])
 ->get();
 
// havingRaw
Product::groupBy('category_id')->havingRaw('COUNT(*) > 1')->get();
 
// orderByRaw
User::where('created_at', '>', '2016-01-01')
 ->orderByRaw('(updated_at - created_at) desc')
 ->get();

14. Replication: make a copy of a row

The following is the simplest way to make a copy of a database entry.

$task = Tasks::find(1);
$newTask = $task->replicate();
$newTask->save();

15. Chunk() method for big tables

This is not necessarily related to Eloquent and is more related to the Collection. Nevertheless, Chunk () is powerful and particularly useful for the processing of bigger datasets. The bigger datasets can be chunked into pieces.

Instead of:

$users = User::all();
foreach ($users as $user) {
    // ...

You can do:

User::chunk(100, function ($users) {
    foreach ($users as $user) {
        // ...
    }
});

16. When creating a model, create additional things

We are well acquainted with this Artisan command:

php artisan make:model Company

Numerous Eloquent users are not aware of the three useful flags that generate the files related to the model.

php artisan make:model Company -mcr
  • -m will create a migration file
  • -c will create a controller
  • -r will indicate that the controller should be resourceful

17. Override updated_at when saving

->save() method can also accept parameters. Correspondingly, it can be used while ignoring update_at default functionality, which needs to be filled with the current timestamp.

$product = Product::find($id);
$product->updated_at = '2019-01-01 10:00:00';
$product->save(['timestamps' => false]);

Over here, we override the default update_at with the one that we have predefined. 

18. What does update () result into?

In your option, what does the following code return?

$result = $products->whereNull('category_id')->update(['category_id' => 2]);

It is in the database that an update is performed. But what would that $result have?

The $result would contain affected rows. In case you need to check the numbers of rows that were affected, there is no requirement to call anything else. The update () returns this number for you.

19. Transform brackets into an Eloquent query

Let us consider the case wherein one has a mix of and & or in his SQL query.

... WHERE (gender = 'Male' and age >= 18) or (gender = 'Female' and age >= 65)

Here is the wrong way to translate this into Eloquent

$q->where('gender', 'Male');
$q->orWhere('age', '>=', 18);
$q->where('gender', 'Female');
$q->orWhere('age', '>=', 65);

This is wrong because it is difficult to manage the order in this way. The right way, however, is more complicated and uses closure functions for sub-queries:

$q->where(function ($query) {
 $query->where('gender', 'Male')
 ->where('age', '>=', 18);
})->orWhere(function($query) {
 $query->where('gender', 'Female')
 ->where('age', '>=', 65); 
})

20. orWhere with multiple parameters

One can pass an array of parameters to orWhere(). Here is the Ususal way to accomplish the same.

$q->where('a', 1);
$q->orWhere('b', 2);
$q->orWhere('c', 3);

But you can also do it like this.

$q->where('a', 1);
$q->orWhere(['b' => 2, 'c' => 3]);

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Shopify Expert?

Several factors define the costs associated with h [...]

The Cost Factor Associated with Hiring a Shopify Expert for My Web Store

When one plans to create an online mall, Shopify frequently comes by as the default choice. Even while Shopify is more expensive as compared to several of its competitors, start-ups and entrepreneurs are invariably drawn towards Shopify. 

Shopify offers a range of advantages over its competitors as an eCommerce platform. It is more flexible and easier to manage, right from the very beginning. Shopify is scalable as well, and correspondingly a more feasible solution which lasts as your business grows. 

Overall, Shopify is value for money. It boosts conversion rates and results in higher ROIs. The robust admin panel is easier to manage for people from a non-technical background. To get started with, you’d need to hire a Shopify expert who will design your store in just the way desired and prime it for success.

Why do I require the services of a Shopify Expert?

Numerous business owners have the opinion that it is easy for them to create a Shopify store for themselves, with the tools available. They can then make a payment and host the store using one of the plans available.

This is possible. But letting a Shopify expert work over your Shopify store for you is the best way out.

On the other hand, if a business owner is planning to create a Shopify store for himself, he would require sound technical knowledge for the same. 

It is hence a common practice for start-ups and entrepreneurs to hire Shopify experts to create an online store for their businesses. Services of a Shopify expert ensure that your web mall has a trending storefront and aesthetic service pages. The functionality stays flawless. The responsive online mall loads quicker and is a high performer over SEO parameters.

Shopify SEO brings SEO value for your online mall but a Shopify expert can do more for the SEO, depending upon the unique market positioning of your store. Similarly, the services of a Shopify expert will result in an enhanced branding for your store. 

How much would I spend on hiring a Shopify Expert?

Calculating the cumulative charges involved

Before going ahead with a Shopify plan, a business owner should have an idea about the total expenses that he’d be incurring for creating a Shopify store.

One can buy any of the three Shopify plans available and make a selection based upon his requirements and budget. Then, one buys a domain name for his online mall. A business email and paid apps are optional purchases. Some free apps are available as well, besides paid apps. Another potential investment over your Shopify store will be a paid Shopify theme.

Factors that render an influence over the costs incurred

Several factors define the costs associated with hiring a Shopify Expert. They include the kind of the store, and the sections, functionalities, and features that it will have. 

When a Shopify expert does more work over your Shopify store, he charges you more. Similarly, Shopify experts who have elaborate work experience will charge you more as compared to Shopify experts who have only a year or a few months of experience.

A generic blueprint of the costs included

As a generic estimate, you are likely to spend $500 over hiring a Shopify expert and developing your store in entirety.

In case you want a very basic store with limited features, it is okay to hire a Shopify expert on an hourly basis. The work will cost you between $100 to $250, and creating the store won’t take over a couple of days to accomplish. Most of the building tools required are available at Shopify building tools.

Creating a store over a medium scale will cost you between $300 and $600. Similarly, expert development will cost you between $700 and $1000.

For a large scale store, it is preferable to hire experienced Shopify Experts

Wix Pricing Review 2020: Everything You Need to Know

Upgrading to any paid plan lets Wix developers ove [...]

How Much Would I Spend for Creating a Wix Website?

Wix pricing plans offer great value when we compare them to the pricing plans provided by any other of the drag & drop website builders. While Wix is the best all-round website builder available, the pricing range offered by the Wix is the most reasonable in the class. Using Wix, one can create a website without possessing refined technical skills.

Cyblance is the best Wix design agency and your top choice for end-to-end Wix web services. You can hire Wix designer or Wix experts from Cyblance for creating Wix responsive themes.

A quick look at Wix prices

Wix prices characteristically lie in the range of $13 to $500 monthly. But Wix bills users each year with an annual installment.

The most inexpensive plan made available by Wix is the combo plan – $13 monthly. This gives the users an ad-free site. 

For freelancers, the $17 monthly unlimited plan is the best. If you’re an online seller, the $23 Wix Business Basic plan is the best choice for you. Wix also makes a free plan available for testing purposes.

Paying monthly offers more flexibility than paying yearly

When a user is billed monthly by Wix for 12 months, it is a little more expensive than being billed annually. But it brings in more flexibility into play and one can cancel the subscription at any time. It is a nice option to go for when one is on a tight budget.

 

 

Wix puts forth eight premium plans for your selection, and a freelance Wix developer can go ahead with an alternative that best meets his requirements. 

By going ahead with an annual plan, one saves somewhere between 17% and 33% on the annual bills paid. Moreover, features such as premium apps and vouchers, and free domains are included only in annual plans.

Upgrading to any paid plan lets Wix developers overcome Wix advertisements from his website. The $13 combo plan is a fine option to go ahead with at such times. This comes with options such as 3GB storage, 2GB bandwidth, 30 custom minutes, and a free custom domain.

The utility of Wix goes beyond eCommerce websites

Wix makes four plans available for Wix designers who are creating a Wix website other than an eCommerce store, such as a business site, portfolio, or blog. These four plans are the combo plan, unlimited plan, Pro Plan, and the VIP plan. They are priced in the range of $13 monthly to $39 monthly. For large websites, the VIP plan is the best option to go ahead with.

However, the combo plan nicely covers the requirements of most non-eCommerce websites, in particular, if one is just getting started. The ad removal and custom domain features enable a professional look for a website. A Wix designer can further upgrade to a more advanced plan whenever such is the requirement.

Best Wix eCommerce pricing plans

Wix makes three eCommerce plans available for users, priced in the range $23 to $49 monthly. Each is billed annually.

 

 

The Enterprise plan is also made available as an advanced business solution. It is priced at $500 monthly and is billed annually.

The most inexpensive Wix eCommerce plan is the Business Basic plan. It is the best plan to go ahead with when one gets started with his eCommerce store. 

If one runs a smaller sized online mall, he wouldn’t require upgrading sometime soon. $23 monthly equips one with more or less everything one requires.

Wix Enterprise plan for big businesses

 

 

Enterprise is the most advanced plan offered by Wix. It is priced at $500 monthly. While the features from Business VIP plans are made available, the plan enables personalized hands-on service by the Wix staff for Wix website design. They help with on-boarding, setup, planning development and launch, and make services available for scaling the business. A business avails the services of an expert solutions partner, dedicated to their account. Related services include continual project monitoring and annual security audits.

How well does the Wix free plan work

 

The free plan allows one to create a Wix website slowly, and publish it for free as well. A few of the disadvantages that come into play with using the free plan are adverts and limited features. But the free plan helps get a feel of Wix.

The right time to upgrade

 

 

A user may want to upgrade to ensure that Wix web design delivers actual value. The right time to upgrade is when one starts selling products, or when the website represents professional services. Similarly, a user may upgrade if the website has begun to slow down or crash, or when one wants to promote his website. Upgrading will give a user a custom domain name.

Conclusion 

Wix makes a range of premium features available for Wix web design at competitive pricing. They include a free domain name, high bandwidth and storage, and premium apps. Wix delivers value for money.

                2. Plugins
                3. Widgets

What can you create and develop in WordPress?

When a WordPress developer modifies WordPress, he creates a standalone code that combines with WordPress core code. The developer can bring about a range of changes over his WordPress site by tweaking the standalone code, such as creating new profile pages or transforming the core behavior. The core code stays unaltered at all times.

A WordPress Developer primarily works upon five of these aspects:

1. Themes

WordPress theme development pertains to the styling and layout of a WordPress website. A theme can be manipulated in numerous ways. Multiple elements combine to make a WordPress theme, such as JQuery, JavaScript, PHP, CSS, and HTML.

Keeping a WordPress theme responsive is a must nowadays, and allows the end-consumer to access a website easily over a smartphone. A responsive theme is created using CSS media queries and fluid workflow of grid systems.

2. Plugins

Plugins are the most used feature in WordPress and are currently over 54,000 in number. With WordPress plugin development, a Wordpress developer can add to the collection. Plugins add additional functionality to WordPress without altering the core code. PHP hooks are frequently used for creating plugins. As an example, WooCommerce is a popular WordPress eCommerce plugin while JetPack is a WordPress website design plugin, used to create a WordPress website.

3. Widget

When a WordPress developer creates his plugin or a theme, a custom widget can help create a function which one does not find otherwise.

Widgets are web components and may also be used to access specific parts or pages of a website. As an example, they may enable a quick getaway for certain features, such as the shopping cart in WordPress eCommerce. Creating widgets requires a good working knowledge of PHP.

Default widgets over WordPress can be accessed by appearance -> widgets. Similarly, installing plugins give access to third-party widgets such as Ninja Forms and Simple Page Sidebars.

4. Entire WordPress websites

Entire WordPress websites are created by combining widgets, plugins, themes and custom codes created using PHP, JavaScript, CSS, and SASS. One requires not just WordPress developer skills, but WordPress web design skills as well.

5. Web Applications via Rest API

WordPress now uses REST API, a bridge connecting any working application over a web server with the WordPress core.

By knowing REST API, a WordPress developer can create a working application over WordPress.

What Do You Need to Know as A WordPress Developer?

HTML (preferably HTML5)

HTML ensures that your web pages display nicely across browsers. It is among the key skills for a WordPress designer to know.

CSS (preferably CSS3)

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) determine how HTML elements display over different screen sizes. This makes WordPress web design responsive.

PHP

PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor) is a powerful and feature-rich scripting language that takes care of the backend. The results of scripting are displayed by HTML.

MySQL

MySQL stores all information about the website, wherein PHP dynamically retrieves the information.

JavaScript

JavaScript is a web scripting language. It allows WordPress developers to manipulate the content’s behavior over a webpage.

jQuery

jQuery is a frequently used library for JavaScript. Multiple JavaScript functions can be chained together using jQuery. This makes the end code easier to read.

AJAX

AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) allows a WordPress developer to send or receive data without entirely reloading a page. This makes a webpage more interactive.

Sharing Your Work For Free through WordPress Repositories

When a WordPress developer creates a plugin or a theme, he can share it using a WordPress repository. But it is important to release the work under a General Public License (GPL). With a GPL in place, the users get certain rights to your work when they download and use it. In general, the GPL allows you to retain appropriate copyrights to your work. So, each of the files in your works must have this license.

Monetizing Your Work by Finding Clients

For finding clients, it is preferable for a WordPress developer to have a strong portfolio. Similarly, one must be knowledgeable about the skills that his future clients would be on a lookout for. They are looking out for the best WordPress developer.

One can find out the skillsets of WordPress developers in demand online.

Dealing with Contracts and Invoices

A WordPress developer must create a written contract with the client, which specifies the extent of work and the pay rate. Similarly, the contract must specify if the developer is charging an hourly rate or a flat fee.

After the project is through, one must send an invoice to the client. This must list the work done over the project, and the date when it was delivered.

Counting Taxes and Income

Regarding taxes and income, rules differ by the country. But a WordPress developer must understand his tax obligation.

Above a certain income, one is required to pay taxes or a VAT as well. Paying taxes on time helps prevent legal issues at a later point in time.

Conclusion:

There is a range of development related to WordPress that a WordPress developer can do. The top five include making an entire WordPress website, plugins, themes widgets, and web applications. One must be technically thorough and know Ajax, jQuery, JavaScript, MySQL, PHP, CSS3 and HTML5.

Then, one must share and monetize one’s work. A bright portfolio helps find high-paying clients. One can also access WordPress help, for a range of developer resources available over the website. WordPress support forums are easily accessible as well.

The Procedure for Hiring a Talented Shopify Expert | Cyblance

Need to hire a Shopify expert? Designer, developer [...]

The Procedure for Hiring a Talented Shopify Expert

Is there a requirement of a Shopify developer for your store? Do you need a Shopify expert for setup, development, design or marketing purposes? The choices at a business’s disposal are going for a Shopify expert or a Shopify plus expert.

For the success of an online mall, the web store should be outstanding and be characterized by matchless accessibility. The competition levels are high, with many entities selling their goods online.

Requirements of most merchants are basic

A majority of merchants are looking for a certain degree of customization for their stores. This should be combined with high and varied functionality. It is here that the role of a Shopify expert becomes indispensable.

Setting up a Shopify store is indeed easy. But it comes by as a time-taking task, which may not be possible for a business owner. To counter the issue, Shopify has cultivated Shopify Experts, which is a community of e-commerce specialists.

Where do I hire an official Shopify expert?

 

 

In the primary Shopify domain, one comes across a microsite that has Shopify Experts’ list. One can figure out a Shopify expert by typing in the name or the relevant keywords in the search box. This helps find an expert based upon his niche of expertise.

Key things to consider when hiring a Shopify expert

What’s the issue?

Identifying the problem is the first step to consider when you hire Shopify expert of any kind, Shopify developer or a Shopify designer. He would be able to present a flawless Shopify website design or create a Shopify store for your business.

So what is it that you are planning to do? Develop a new Shopify website or looking for a Shopify design that is the best match for your requirements?

Location

Location is ideally of no relevance. Shopify experts seldom meet their clients face to face. This allows businesses to collaborate with Shopify experts from all across the world.

Most of the experts use tools such as Invision and Sketch for prototyping. The need to meet face to face is hence done away with. One also has a choice at finding only a Shopify web designer who is nearby his location. But then, a business would be paying up to 100% more for accessing Shopify help by meeting a Shopify expert face-to-face.

Pricing

Pricing is one of the key defining factors for the selection of a Shopify Expert. Before one finalizes a deal, one should ask an expert about the price he is going to charge. An experienced Shopify expert would be in a position to quote a reasonable price with an instant effect. This is also subject to the changes you want for your store. A business is likely to come across Shopify experts who undertake the project at a reasonable price.

Check portfolios

Checking portfolios is the best way to figure out a Shopify expert who is ideal for your brand, based upon your requirements. One must go through the projects that an expert has completed in the past. This goes to show that the expert has relevant experience in a particular field. There may be cases wherein a project created by a Shopify expert links to his website.

Should I hire a developer who is not an official Shopify expert?

No, as this would reflect over the quality of work. Alternately, hiring an official Shopify expert ensures peace of mind for a business owner.

Shopify experts program has stringent requirements for inclusion for experts across all genres, designers, marketing specialists, and photographers.

 

 

Are all Shopify experts capable of design, setup, and development?

No. They are subdivided into 5 categories.

Shopify designers  Primarily concerned with visuals and a website’s presentation. They take care of user-interface and design elements.

Shopify Developers – They work on apps and back-end.

Setup Experts – They have expertise over store configuration and setup.

Marketing Experts – Marketing experts deliver a competitive edge for your store. They bring in even more customers with the use of digital marketing strategies, such as SEO.

Photography Experts – Photography experts use strategic positioning and photography to draw attention to your products.

A few of the Shopify experts are listed under one category alone, owing to the specialization of their services. Others are listed under multiple categories and provide an all-round package for their clients. If a business owner is sure of his business requirements, he can avail of the services of a single Shopify expert and make sure that the services are seamless. A few of the Shopify experts deal with the Shopify Plus platform. A business owner can hire Shopify plus experts as well.

An Effective Squarespace Client-site Design Process

Creating a website using Squarespace comes with a number of advantages. A Squarespace website looks good while being easy to customize and use as well.

Squarespace is relatively newer. Correspondingly, Squarespace designers are fewer as compared to WordPress designers. Let us take a look at the ways to create a Squarespace website right from scratch.

1 | Create a trial site

For someone who intends to create a Squarespace website, Squarespace makes a 14-day free trial available. This helps a Squarespace designer without having to purchase anything in the first go.

In these 14 days, one can create a nice Squarespace website. It is unlikely to take any longer. A new user can also create a trial site.

An advantage of making websites using Squarespace is that one has easy access to each of his websites. One can access them by clicking over one’s profile image, which is right below the main menu.

 

 

When one is required to work over a site that already exists, one can create a trial site to be sure about the layouts, without messing the pre-existing site. 

A trial site also gives one a better understanding of Squarespace’s capabilities. This is important when makes a switch from some other platform to Squarespace.

2 | Customize the design 

Choosing a template

When one is through creating a trial site, one is prompted to choose one of the Squarespace templates.

A range of custom Squarespace templates is made available for a Squarespace designer’s selection. They are across different categories, such as restaurants, portfolios, and businesses and help create a nice Squarespace design for a website. One can browse across the different templates easily.

A few of the top points which a Squarespace designer should keep in mind when choosing the templates are its functionality, the layouts, and the feature index. This demonstrates the template’s capabilities and gives a fair idea of its feasibility for a particular website.

 

 

With each template, Squarespace gives an overview of other websites that were created using the templates. A Squarespace web designer must run through those as well. This helps with designing sites in Squarespace. The template chosen depends on the kind of website that one wants to create and the functionalities and features one wants the site to have.

In Squarespace, one can switch templates at any time and bring about a change in the Squarespace site design. One keeps all the content one created while using a prior template. Customizations made over colors, spacing, and fonts are however not saved. It is, therefore, recommendable that one does a bit of homework and chooses the best-suited theme right from the start. Being sure of one’s requirements, before getting started help.

 

 

Mapping out the content

Many of Squarespace themes have predefined spacing and require no knowledge of coding. Mapping a wireframe beforehand, based upon your requirements is likely to be helpful. 

So make a list of pages and see the ones that will be listed in the main navigation menu. Calls to action create a flow for the end-users of the website.

After choosing the template, work on the pages and the navigation.

Receiving content from clients

When a Squarespace web designer receives written and multimedia contents from the clients, it is preferable for the same to organized, in folders and subfolders for each webpage and section.

 

 

Customizing the template

 

 

If a Squarespace specialist has the framework for a website ready with him, he can add in the logo and use the Style Editor to make adjustments in colors, fonts, and sizes. 

One also previews the changes while one makes them. This saves time. After finalizing the presentation of the website, one adds in the buttons. 

 

 

3 | Client approval

The first step involved with getting a client approval is sending the link of the trial site over to the client. 

By default, each Squarespace site receives a unique Squarespace URL. But customizing the Squarespace domain name for the website makes it easier to recall. This is done by going to the Main Menu and clicking on Settings followed by Domain.

Client feedback guides a Squarespace designer to make changes or revisions.

4 | Add client as a site administrator

In case the client is switching over from WordPress or some other CMS to Squarespace, the client is then added as an administrator. This is after they approve the site by clicking over Settings>Permission>Invite Contributor.

 

 

First, they create a Squarespace account. This lets them log in to the backend of the site. Here, they can make an upgrade to a paid site from a trial site. The billing information can also be set up over here.

In case the client already has a Squarespace site, the Squarespace designer can ask the client to let them be the administrator. This lets the designer bring about changes in Squarespace website design and Squarespace themes over the preexisting site.

5 | Transfer content and reroute domain

When clients make a switch from WordPress to Squarespace, a Squarespace designer can transfer the prevailing blog posts and reroute the domain name. This saves trouble for the client. A square space designer should know the login details and the existing domain content for the same.

 

 

In case the client already has a prevailing Squarespace site, put a cover page before getting started, in order to mimic the trial site.

6 | Client tutorial

Once the site is ready, a Squarespace designer meets the client over Google Hangouts or Skype. They share the screen and explain the backend.

It is preferable to explain basic items such as:

  • Updating text and images
  • Editing or adding blog posts
  • Go through site metrics
  • Add items to the shop
  • Connect social media accounts

Squarespace is intuitive and user-friendly. The final consultation takes less than an hour.

It is time to transfer the ownership of the site to the client, send an invoice and celebrate.

Conclusion:

Squarespace is used by designers who want to create a streamlined, professional, user-friendly and efficient website. The aforementioned is one of the processes that work best for creating a Squarespace website.
