Hello World, Output Ninja Here!

- - Site News & Update

Output Ninja is Here! I welcome all readers to Output Ninja! I’m really happy to finish this website and open it in less than 24 hours of registering the domain. It’s that easy, very easy!

Output Ninja?

Output Ninja’s primary goal is to inform our readers anything about web development, in particular WordPress. May it be themes and plugins, speed up / performance tweaks, tutorials and guides, web hosting provider reviews, domains and so much more related to web development.

Hi, I’m Cammy

I’m Cammy and I am an enthusiastic WordPress ninja. I’m a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science graduate so computers and programming has always been my kind of thing. Eat, sleep, breathe computers, repeat.

I am an expert on web development and graphic designs from the Philippines. I have over 6 years of experience in developing for a wide range of clients. I’m also one of Upwork’s top rated freelancers.

I’ve started making websites when I was 12 years old (2006). Ofcourse, it was really a basic website hosted at a free web hosting provider called freewebs, but it was the start. I purchased my first ever domain at the age of 12 called sour-cream.org, that is dead now. It’s been running til I was 18 years old. I figured that domain name didn’t mean anything, so I let it go and bought a different domain. Soon after, I have been featured on a local newspaper on how to earn money online by doing web development and design services.

Back-end of our site

I’ll be tackling along all the back-end of Output Ninja and what tools I’ve used to create this website. Let’s first start with the CMS to the plugins and other services we’re using.

WordPress

Wordpress

This website is powered by WordPress. 25% or more of websites today are being powered by WordPress. But why? Well WordPress is a free opensource content management system (CMS) where any user can completely download, install, use and modify – or play with for FREE and because it is really easy to use.

WordPress Plugins

Wordpress Plugins
The following plugins are used to add additional features to our WordPress website

Security and Spam Protection Plugins

Akismet

I think everyone would agree that everybody hate spams, it is so irritating to receive a notification that someone commented on your website/blog to only figure out that it is a spam comment. So I have installed Akismet. It is used by millions, Akismet is quite possibly the best way in the world to protect your blog from spam. It keeps your site protected even while you sleep.

iThemes Security

I tried other security plugins, but I prefer iTheme Security over them all because of its easy of use. iThemes Security has done an amazing job of catching all kinds of shady activity. Would highly recommend to ANYONE with a WordPress site. iThemes Security offers 30+ ways to lock down WordPress in an easy-to-use WordPress security plugin.

Caching, Optimization & Performance Plugins

Autoptimize

Optimizes your website, concatenating the CSS and JavaScript code, and compressing it.

Rocket Lazy Load

The tiny Lazy Load script for WordPress without jQuery or others libraries.

Simple Cache

This I use on all my websites – simple but it just works!

WP-Optimize

This plugin helps you to keep your database clean by removing post revisions and spam in a blaze. Additionally, it allows you to run the optimize command on your WordPress core tables (please use with caution).

Social Media, Emails/Forms, and Others

Caldera Forms

Easy to use, grid based responsive form builder for creating simple to complex forms.

tagDiv Social Counter

Social counter for WordPress. Widget and visual composer block.

ThirstyAffiliates

ThirstyAffiliates is a revolution in affiliate link management. Collect, collate and store your affiliate links for use in your posts and pages.

WPBakery Visual Composer

Drag and drop page builder for WordPress. Take full control over your WordPress site, build any layout you can imagine – no programming knowledge required.

SEO and Analytics

Yoast SEO

The first true all-in-one SEO solution for WordPress, including on-page content analysis, XML sitemaps and much more. We use Yoast to improve our website’s SEO. It is basically your All in One SEO plugin.

Web Hosting

I am currently signed up with multiple web hosting providers for my other websites. But the hosting I use on this website is BUYVM/BUYSHARED who have their servers in the United States and Luxembourg in Europe. Support (helpdesk) is usually responding within 10 minutes, and I find them very helpful. They also have live chat for sales/inquiry related support available during their business hours.

I am so glad that Output Ninja is up and running. I’ve always wanted to open up a website like this – but never had over the past years. I hope you will be able to learn from this website on and about web development.
