The Gabfire Widget Pack plugin contains 12 useful widgets to extend your WordPress site. It is a FREE plugin that will work with any theme, not just a Gabfire theme.
The Gabfire Widget Pack contains 12 awesome widgets:

There are several reasons why we released the Gabfire Widget Pack plugin. Here are a few:
1) Contribute to the WP Community – Some of our widgets are quite popular, and we received several emails asking for the code. So rather than limit them to only the Gabfire community, we decided to package our most common widgets into a plugin that could be used by the entire WordPress community.
2) Give End-User Control – Our themes are quite robust in features and options. We found that some users took advantage of the various widgets, however some did not. Therefore, in an effort to allow the end user to decide which widgets they wanted on their site, moving the widgets into a plugin made more sense. Now, you can decide which widget to enable or disable on your site, and users can take advantage of them on any theme.
3) Less is More – There are plenty of plugins and widgets available through WordPress. Depending on your needs, some may be relevant and useful, whereas some are just extra bloat on your site. By transferring the widgets into a free plugin, our themes are lighter out-of-the-box.
Similar to any other WordPress plugin, you can grab the Gabfire Widget Pack plugin from the WordPress Plugin repository. Try it out. If you like it, give it a rating on the repository to let more people know about it. If you have any questions related to it, feel free to post a comment below.
Unlike hacks, brute force attacks take the easier approach of consistently trying to guess your username and password. Unfortunately, this works since not all site owners have the strongest credentials, especially those who still use the dreaded default ‘admin‘ username. Since brute force attacks don’t halt after a single failed attempt, they can take a devastating toll on your server memory causing performance issues.
To prevent these attacks on your WordPress site, follow these precautionary steps:
- Limit Login Attempts – does what the name says.
- Google Authenticator – allows two-factor authentication to login to your WordPress site. For some, this may seem like overkill, but you can never be too safe.
- WordFence – a robust security plugin with built-in firewall, virus scanning, and a premium version to block specific countries.
Now that you’re informed, spend a few minutes to protect that awesome site. While you’re at it, take out the trash, spam, and erroneous users. Any questions or comments related to these brute force attacks, just ping us in the comments below.

This is one responsive WordPress theme well worth the wait. You’ve heard us mention it within our community forums and now it’s ready for your next newspaper or magazine site.
As always, we listened closely to our community and analyzed the most requested features. Even with our 5 years of newspaper design and development experience, it took our developer 2 months to perfect all (and there’s definitely a long list) the features of this theme. We’ll go into details further below, but rest assured you won’t find another theme that compares to the all new Patterns theme for WordPress.
Here’s the rundown of some noteworthy features inside the Patterns theme:

Wondering about WPML plugin compatibility with Gabfire themes? Well rest assured, the fine folks over at WPML tested some of our themes and verified they are fully compatible with their awesome multilingual plugin. If you’re not already familiar with WPML, you should check out what they offer. In short, here’s what their plugin does:
With WPML you can translate pages, posts, custom types, taxonomy, menus and even the theme’s texts. Since many of our users are worldwide, this plugin is an excellent option for multilingual news sites and magazines. If you’re in the market for this, WPML should be at the top of the list. Now you have 1 more reason to do so with fully compatibility between Gabfire themes and WPML plugin.
Everyone has an Opinion! That’s the real substance behind great communities – a constant flow of different opinions. Our latest theme – aptly titled Opinions – really has all the bells-and-whistles needed to set up a community platform based on a magazine theme.
We received extremely positive feedback on our Connect theme which gave us plenty of motivation to build a second BuddyPress compatible WordPress theme. With Opinions, we wanted to display a large amount of content in a clean magazine layout while also taking advantage of BuddyPress functionality to create a truly social platform.
The design of Opinions theme will scale to fit on all browser widths/resolutions and on all mobile devices.

Connect is a WordPress and BuddyPress theme for those that want to build a community around their news site. Since BuddyPress has progressed so much in the last year, we figured a theme with social networking capabilities was overdue. Besides, our community has been asking for such a theme for quite some time. Now you have it with all these features below:
The theme is fully responsive and ready for any device (table, mobile phone, etc).
Like many of our themes, Connect also has several category templates to give up your site some much needed variety. These include:
Connect has three post templates. You can decide exactly what layout a post should have. Here are examples of post layouts:
To keep things interesting, you not only have the option to turn any category menu item into a mega drop-down, but you can also embed a category-specific ad within it. During our tests, we noticed many users clicked on those ads, so let’s hope you have the same results.
As with most of our themes, one blog post is never enough to capture all the theme features.
BuddyPress’ tagline is Social networking, in a box. That’s exactly what you get with the Connect theme. Go ahead and start your own WordPress-powered social network!
It’s 10PM here in NYC, and before I head out into the city that never sleeps, I wanted to finish some tweaks and tests on our upcoming theme. Here’s a sneak peek at what we’ve been working on behind the scenes. It’s next on the release schedule so stay tuned.
