  • Question about Elementor Pro (or about premium builders in general)
    by /u/smiley44 on January 20, 2020 at 7:53 pm

    I'm having a hell of a time getting my site up. Using GeneratePress Pro (child theme), which I purchased because I thought it came with page templates. Well, it doesn't, my site looks bad, and I'm considering buying Elementor Pro so I can use some of the pro templates. Here's my question: If I pay for Pro, then use a premium template, will my site stop working if I don't continue to pay the monthly Elementor membership in three months (or six months or whatever)? Basically I'm wondering if Elementor Pro gives me unlimited use of a template or if I'm simply "renting" it for the duration of my service Thanks guys! submitted by /u/smiley44 [link] [comments]

  • I need to make a product configurator but without ecommerce integration
    by /u/PM_me_spare_change on January 20, 2020 at 7:22 pm

    We're a small b2b looking to make it easier/more visual for our customers to understand our product configurations. From there we want to send the configs along to our sales team. (Not to an online cart for sale). We don't even want pricing on this configurator. Any plug-ins good for this or are we stuck working with a dev team for something like this? submitted by /u/PM_me_spare_change [link] [comments]

  • Noob Question: Can I manipulate the order of my blog posts?
    by /u/CapableDonut on January 20, 2020 at 7:18 pm

    <waves> Hi, total noob here. No idea what I'm doing and thought I'd ask the experts. I just made a small website for my blogposts. Is there a way for me change the order in which they appear in the block on homepage? Currently, posts are pulling in chronological - showing the most recent post first. This is the way I would like it to behave. However, I'm porting over some older content that will technically be "written" after a couple of brand new posts. The ported older posts are showing up before my new posts because of when the content was actually written in wordpress. Any way I can change the order with out have to go through copy/paste/republish for my content? submitted by /u/CapableDonut [link] [comments]

  • Cached version of child theme css loading after updated css file?
    by /u/_stordahl on January 20, 2020 at 6:53 pm

    I'm building a wp child theme of ThemeGrill's ColorMag. When I load the page, my child theme css file is loaded, but there is also a file called style.css?ver=5.3.2 loaded after it. When I look at the code under elements in the dev tools, it appears to be a cached version of my style.css file. I've deleted the child theme folder and reuploaded all of my files but I see the same result. I also have wp-cache level set to 0 Also I should note, I'm new to wp and couldn't figure out how to enqueue the child theme stylesheet properly, so style.css is loaded via an href in my header.php. my functions.php looks like this: <?php function my_theme_enqueue_styles() { wp_enqueue_style( 'parent-style', get_template_directory_uri() . '/style.css' ); wp_enqueue_style( 'child-style', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/style.css', array('parent-style') ); } add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_theme_enqueue_styles' ); ?> ​ Again, I'm new so any best practices you have would be much appreciated! The site is live here for reference. If you look under sources you can see the style.css?ver=5.3.2 submitted by /u/_stordahl [link] [comments]

  • Booking Plugin/site
    by /u/rattymotion on January 20, 2020 at 6:53 pm

    I’m looking for a plugin that would allow users to book people for events. Ideally, one would sign into the site and then select the person who they would like to book for an event for example to “MC an event”. Each person on the site who can be booked has a cost associated with their appearance. Once selected, the user has to book and pay for the persons appearance. Does anyone have any ideas as to what plugin would be capable of offering such a capability? submitted by /u/rattymotion [link] [comments]

  • Link to social media profile
    by /u/advocatus24 on January 20, 2020 at 6:49 pm

    I'm using the Genesis Authority Pro theme. I have a three column layout on the home page. I want to put links to my social media profiles in the right column, however, I don't see a way to do this using a Gutenberg block. I've searched the plugin directory but all I find are plugins for sharing which I have no need for as I've already got that figured out. This new editor is really frustrating me. I used to be able to put together a site in a couple of days. Now it feels like it takes twice or three times it along. It really has me thinking about other content management systems. submitted by /u/advocatus24 [link] [comments]

  • How to use WP REST API to get desired number of posts?
    by /u/shkico on January 20, 2020 at 6:26 pm

    How can I control REST API? I am creating a website with React for learning purposes, so I am only fetching data from WordPress. For blog page I would like to get all posts for currently paginated page, and I get this because inside WordPress I am controlling this by settings posts_per_page to 9 add_action('pre_get_posts', 'modify_pre_get_posts'); function modify_pre_get_posts($query) { if (is_admin() && $query->is_main_query()) { return $query; } $query->set('posts_per_page', 9); return $query; } So this code works fine, I get 9 posts http://localhost/wp-test/wp-json/wp/v2/posts?_embed&page=1 But, how can I get only 3 latest posts? The code above overrides this and I always get 9 posts http://localhost/wp-test/wp-json/wp/v2/posts?_embed&per_page=3 Here are the official docs https://developer.wordpress.org/rest-api/using-the-rest-api/pagination/ submitted by /u/shkico [link] [comments]

  • I deleted a Brand and now when you click on the right logo, it tries to bring up old brand
    by /u/DanielSunther on January 20, 2020 at 5:39 pm

    THought I would come straight here, the strangest thing, even after clearing all caches if you click on a Brand it brings you to it older brand link that was deleted, causing a 404 but I have 404s redirected back to Main Page. If you can please take a look, there used to be 2 brands - CBDistillery and CBDistillery RX, I deleted the RX brand as it really was not needed but now when you click on the regular CBDistillery brand logo it still seems to be indexed to /brands/cbdistillery_rx which I deleted, and also connected the correct brand names again just to make sure it was not a glitch, does anyone have any insight. www.elementearthcbd.com, you will see the brand bar, if you click on CBDistillery, it will bring you back to the main page, and if you look at the address bar you see its bringing you to brands/cbdsitillery_rx Any help would be much appreciated!!!!! submitted by /u/DanielSunther [link] [comments]

  • E-commerce store question
    by /u/lowgskillet on January 20, 2020 at 5:29 pm

    Hey everyone. I'm working on a project that is going to possibly require moving to a different store plugin than WooCommerce. Here's the deal, we're going to have complex items for sale like X kind of shirt, size, color and another set of choices. WooCommerce has a limit of 54 variations when you create them and it causes problems when you have an item that is going to have more than 54 variations. Anyway, because of this I'm looking into finding a new store that will easily handle a large number of product variations. Is BigCommerce the way to go? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks! submitted by /u/lowgskillet [link] [comments]

  • Looking to copy a websites footer onto my website, how to?
    by /u/Gbujs on January 20, 2020 at 5:10 pm

    So I have a website and the theme I've currently used does not have a nice footer setup. In that I can't make it how i've been wanting it to look like. I have a few websites in mind where I would like to copy their footer setup. Is there a way that I can possibly look at the code and copy and paste this onto my site? Is it that simple? I'm sort of lost here in how to even begin, so any insight would be appreciated. submitted by /u/Gbujs [link] [comments]

  • After JS redirect malware injection has been cleaned what about site visitors prior to cleanup?
    by /u/Suitable-Historian on January 20, 2020 at 4:46 pm

    My question relates to the injection of malware in a wordpress codebase, particularly JS redirects. Given users prior to any cleanup may still experience redirection from the domain name long after the site has been cleaned up, it there anything that can be done short of advising them to manually clear cache/cookies? submitted by /u/Suitable-Historian [link] [comments]

  • Issue with buttons
    by /u/PerkyThePorkyPig on January 20, 2020 at 4:24 pm

    I'm having a somewhat peculiar issue with buttons. I am trying to create a simple button via the page builder which redirects to an external site. But when I put in the external domain it adds it on to my own domain. For example: www.MyDomain/ExternalDomain.com I have used buttons 100s of times without this occurring. Just on this one article the issue occurs. The article I'm mentioning here submitted by /u/PerkyThePorkyPig [link] [comments]

  • Archive Post Assistance
    by /u/Dakota_33 on January 20, 2020 at 4:15 pm

    Using Elementor Pro, ACF Pro and Custom Post Types to create an event type site. Im running into an issue that when I create the Archive Post page, I cant figure out how to include any meta data from the ACF to sort the listings, most importantly by the date of the event. It would be great to sort them by anything after today and in date order... Are there any suggested add-ons or additional plugins that would help with this? I read somewhere that maybe using JetEngine instead of ACF & CPT but offer this, but I would hate to have to redo everything if I can avoid it. submitted by /u/Dakota_33 [link] [comments]

  • Why can’t I use the free .wordpress.com domain?
    by /u/Anorkor on January 20, 2020 at 3:49 pm

    I used to have a Wordpress blog with my email address which I deleted last November. I’ve started writing again and want to create a blog again. However, when I get to the part where it asks me to choose a domain, the option to create a free domain which has the domain-name.wordpress.com format is not there. Has Wordpress discontinued it or is it because I previously had a domain name related to that email address that it’s not working? The point of this blog is to get somewhere to post my writing, and I can’t afford to pay monthly for a domain for that. Is there anything I can do? submitted by /u/Anorkor [link] [comments]

  • WARNING: Using Beaverbuilder with Safari deleted my pages and all their history
    by /u/bulldawg91 on January 20, 2020 at 3:27 pm

    I usually use Beaverbuilder on Chrome, but yesterday I tried using it with Safari. After making edits to a page and clicking "publish", visiting that page then gave me a blank white screen, and when I tried to revert to an earlier version of the page, I got an error message. Thankfully I was able to reconstruct the page without too much hassle, but just wanted others to avoid my fate. I have no idea what could have caused this. submitted by /u/bulldawg91 [link] [comments]

    Say, for example, I had a list of business locations with "open/closed" buttons. And I wanted users with an account to be able to change the locations from open to closed and vice versa, and the result would be public facing. Is this something that's available in a plug-in, or something that I could create? Thanks. submitted by /u/liamemsa [link] [comments]

  • Story Flow styled articles in Wordpress [Layout style]
    by /u/Huudio on January 20, 2020 at 12:24 pm

    Hey, I've noticed lately that a lot of News organisations have shifted towards "Story Flow" (or something like that) content. One example of these kind of articles here: https://yle.fi/uutiset/3-11157183 Is there any Wordpress plugin for such content layout? Most of these articles actually have "Web designer" listed at the end of the article, but I guess someone has already figured out a easier to than to hardcode each article on their own. So any idea how these are made, and if there are any plugins for that? submitted by /u/Huudio [link] [comments]
