More and more governments are using WordPress for their web developments, I do not know if by their own conviction or by the companies they commission the developments but there it is, and Colombia, in its brand website country, use WordPress .

See where sometimes the newest things come to solve the oldest problems and deficiencies . And this is just what happens with a plugin that has just come out that comes to offer something for which many (I of course) have claimed a long time, able to link to something the titles of the widgets .  Its functionality is so simple, and wonderful, that it seems a lie that was not invented before, what do I say ?, that should be the default option in WordPress widgets since the beginning of time.  What does nothing else install it, without adjustments or settings or anything, is add an extra field to all the widgets to put a link that will be the one that bears the title of the widget as simple as that fucking When you save the widget the title will be "clickable" and it will take you to the link you put in.

Well yeah, it seems like a lie but the development of WordPress 3.6 is already very advanced and surely in hours, how much one day the first beta will be available to start doing tests , and then do not regret if some plugin is not compatible. If you're dying to try the WordPress 3.6 news you can get entangled in the WordPress beta test site .
If you are a developer, before publishing a WordPress theme or plugin you will surely have some set of tools to check the integrity of the code, how your theme will look, whether it will comply with WordPress standards, etc.
In short, you need a place to try plugins and WordPress themes.
And maybe one of the best tools there is WP test which you can download from the official website to perform exhaustive tests of WordPress themes and plugins before making them available to the community.

Google Tag Manager or Tag Manager is a powerful tool of online marketing and web analytics created by Google through which to define labels, rules and macros through which to define and track email campaigns marketing, remarketing or Adwords, by example.
The process to include your site in this powerful tool is simple, and in WordPress we have several ways to do it .
… Add Google Tag Manager to WordPress …
The first step , logically, it is to access the web of the administrator of labels, in http://google.com/tagmanager we accede with the button of " Sign in ", that normally will be associated to our existing Google account.
In the first screen you just have to click on the button " New account " to start.
Next we introduce the name of the account:

Pressing the continue button will ask us to accept the terms of service, we accept them:
In the next screen is already offered the necessary code for the connection between our website and Google Tag Manager :

Once you save the changes you already have the container in use and you can start creating labels for that it suggests the usual …
If for some reason you prefer not to add the code manually there are several plugins that help you in this task, and these are some examples:
WP Google Tag Manager : you install the plugin and in the page of settings you put the identifier (ID) of the container created, type "GTM-XXXX", which you'll find in the first line of the code that Google Tag Manager generates
And that's it, basically. Effectively, the container is created and your WordPress connected to the Google Tag Manager but it does not really help if you do not create labels, rules or macros, which is the part you must define or yourself or an authorized partner of Google the one that takes your marketing campaigns.
The process is simple but the decision making, based on your online marketing strategy is something else, which escapes the purpose of this article, even from this blog.
