Envato elements templates are specially designed for popular WordPress page builders, Elementor & Beaver Builder. Install the plugin and browse their growing library of Template Kits. Each Kit is made up of multiple templates that work together visually, and are beautifully tailored for a specific niche. Once you find a template that you like, you can directly import it into your library, or use it to create a new page. You can also combine templates to create inspiring, quality websites in less time, with less effort. I love Envato Elements and all of their products. I've payed for the service since the day they announced it and it's worth every penny.

This is where we get into an area that I would probably classify as the Internet of Things, but with a WordPress twist. BrewPress is a brewery controller that runs on the Raspberry Pi and allows you to brew beer using WordPress. You can run BrewPress on any WordPress website to test and to create ‘dummy’ batches. To enable the control of physical heating elements and pumps, it needs to be run on a WordPress installation on the Raspberry Pi. Would this mean that my beer can possibly be hacked?
