Hi, Fränk Klein here, the person behind this site.
Transparency is important to me, as I consider it to be a key value–not only in my personal life–but also for a better web. In this context, I want to bring your attention to the fact that for certain products and links on this site, I do earn an affiliate commission if you purchase them.
My goal with this site is help educate WordPress developers. While I do enjoy helping people, please understand that I do this as part of a for-profit business. I want to provide the best content that I can, and I cannot do this if I work for free.
But rest assured that I only recommend products that I have not only purchased, but also used, myself. I do not select my recommendations based on their affiliate program. Instead I select them based on the value that these products provided me, and I consider they can provide you.
I have not been given any free products, services, or other forms of compensation in return for mentions or recommendations. I value my editorial independence too much, and I do not consider such deals–which result in ineffective recommendations–to bring value to my readers.
While I do my best to add additional disclaimers to pages that link to affiliate products, there might be pages slipping through the cracks. In this case it is only an oversight, and not at all meant to hide the fact that the page contains affiliate links.
If you have any questions concerning this topic, please do not hesitate to contact me.
