Tofino is a popular tourist destination in the summer. Situated on the traditional territory of the Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation, we’re surrounded by the vast, breathtaking expanse of the UNESCO Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Region— a region cherished for its profound biodiversity and environmental culture. Tofino’s population swells to many times its winter size. It attracts surfers, hikers, nature lovers, bird watchers, campers, whale watchers, fishers, or anyone just looking to be close to nature on this West Coast bastion that looks out to the Pacific. Tofino sits North of Long Beach, a scenic and popular year-round destination, at the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. Tofino also shares the peninsula with the town of Ucluelet to the South.
Travelers come to Tofino via the road West from Port Alberni, via float plane and via the Tofino-Long Beach Airport (YAZ). The town has a quaint, hip charm that bring people back year after year. Tourism is huge driver of the economy. Despite the pandemic and the town’s reliance on tourism, Tofino is hanging in there and its businesses are putting prep work into being and better for 2021. With all this planning, the big question: how do you get your Tofino based business discovered by the world? Web marketing.

Seven handy tips for freelancers (and two bonus tips!)
My goto plugin to duplicate a page is WordPress is “Duplicate Page.” The plugin saves me a lot of time. I recommended it to a lot of my friends as well as install in on all of my website projects. With this WordPress plugin, a site admin can duplicate Posts, Pages and Custom Posts easily using single click from the post listing page.
With the popularity of WordPress comes the weight of keeping its components current. Over the last couple of years, changes to PHP (the programming language that WordPress is built with) updated. When its standards changed, many WordPress plugins and themes stopped working. Almost every website hosting provider has discontinued support for the defunct versions of PHP. We want to build a list of dead themes and we need your help.
The Sheila Karrow site needed to update their Blogdrops Theme. The problem: it uses outdated code. The good news: content management systems split content and display: all of the good content remained and we could adapt the site to show off that content through the Divi theme.
