  • What went wrong?
    by /u/cns000 on June 12, 2024 at 4:40 am

    I am learning how to use WordPress and I am following a YouTube tutorial. I was experimenting with starter templates. I selected a starter template under the Astra theme and I applied it. It created for me some pages under posts and pages in the WordPress dashboard. Also it added some demo pictures. After that I selected another starter template and I applied it. New pictures were added and the home page looked ugly because the text wasn't clear on top of the pictures. Next I picked another starter template under the Kadence theme and I applied it. I still got the same ugly home page with the same pictures and text. After that I deleted all the extra pages and posts from the dashboard and I kept my posts and pages and then I deleted the Kadence theme and Astra theme and I reinstalled them. Now when I selected a starter template under the Kadence theme and I applied it I got an error message which said whoops there is nothing there on the home page and also there were no pictures. I selected another starter template under the Kadence theme and I applied it. I got the same thing. Next I selected another starter template under the Astra theme and I applied it. There error message on the home page went away but there are still no pictures. My website is https://test.mds.ae/. I want to ask what went wrong? Why did I get there error message on the home page? Why are there no pics? How do I undo what I did so that when I pick a new starter template and I apply it I get a proper website with pictures? Is it a caching problem with WordPress? The pictures of the theme the starter template that I am on now are in the media library in the dashboard but they are not getting loaded in the website after I view it. submitted by /u/cns000 [link] [comments]

  • Yoast internal links
    by /u/MayaBookkeeper on June 12, 2024 at 3:16 am

    Hi All, This is in regards to my blog posts. On the post page it says there are zero links but when I go to the editor it says I have both outbound and internal links. How do I make sure all the links are picked up? Also when I scroll to the right the page snaps back so I can't see all the words. thanks. https://preview.redd.it/ngopzof9526d1.jpg?width=1670&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=7c1b52cdaa3b46871e345fe87ebe239bfc8fedd6 submitted by /u/MayaBookkeeper [link] [comments]

  • Why is my site image preview blurry?
    by /u/Lonely-Register4023 on June 12, 2024 at 2:52 am

    I am trying to add my logo to be my Site Icon. It appears to show up fine in the tab location but if I copy the link and send the image to someone, the preview is blurry. How do I fix this? Wordpress says icons must be square and at least 512px by 512px. I have placed my logo on a white square background that is 1042px by 1042px and it is still blurry. Does anyone know what is happening here? submitted by /u/Lonely-Register4023 [link] [comments]

  • Need Help with WordPress Quick Edit Hook
    by /u/Personal_Koala_3111 on June 12, 2024 at 2:22 am

    Hey folks, I'm working on a WordPress project and could use some guidance regarding Quick Edit functionality. I have a custom post type called "Project" with two custom fields: "Project Type" (taxonomy) and "Team Size" (post meta). I've set up a hook to update the "Team Size" field whenever the "Project Type" field is changed. However, the hook only seems to work with regular edits, not Quick Edit. Here's my current code: function update_team_size($post_id) { if (!current_user_can('edit_post', $post_id)) { return; } if ('project' === get_post_type($post_id)) { $types = wp_get_post_terms($post_id, 'project_type', array('fields'=> 'names')); update_post_meta($post_id, 'team_size', sizeof($types)); } } add_action('save_post', 'update_team_size'); Any suggestions on how to make this work with Quick Edit would be greatly appreciated! submitted by /u/Personal_Koala_3111 [link] [comments]

  • Suggestions for employee schedule with front end calendar
    by /u/Extension_Dare5792 on June 12, 2024 at 1:22 am

    I know this seems like a simple function but I'm looking for recommendations from those with experience on how I can should create something with the following functionality on a WP website: Backend: Staff List: Create a profile for each staff member which then generates a page displaying their details and qualifications etc (I believe I can do this with something like Simple Staff List plugin) Staff Schedule: In a single calendar schedule staff for different days many staff can be scheduled on the same day. I don't need any time based scheduling just the day is fine Front End: Calendar: - The front end should display a calendar which a visitor can use to select a specific day. When they do this, they will see all the staff scheduled for that day and can click the staff member to view their complete profile. Would love to hear people input on how to achieve this. I'm struggling to find a plugin that can do all of the above and I'm not sure the best way to combine plugins to do this submitted by /u/Extension_Dare5792 [link] [comments]

  • Tableau or alternatives for integrating good, easy-to-update dashboards
    by /u/jptiger0 on June 11, 2024 at 11:59 pm

    I work for a nonprofit that's seriously considering hiring someone to redesign our WP site. We currently have a bunch of charts on pages that are static images we update in Excel, screenshot, and upload. Not ideal. We've also as a team spent some time learning how to use Tableau for other purposes. Embedding a Tableau dashboard is pretty straightforward, but I'm not seeing a good way to do so that actually looks good, is responsive, etc. We're not looking to build an alternative ourselves, I just want to be able to provide specs to a pro in an informed way. But we do want to be able to update everything in the dashboards every three months or so quickly and easily, and Tableau does handle this nicely. Two questions: Do any of you have experience working or seeing Tableau dashboards integrated well into a WP site aesthetically, accessibly, and practically? Do any of you have alternative dashboard and charting solutions that have a comparable or better degree of visual customization and that can be updated all at once by uploading a spreadsheet (or even better monitoring a spreadsheet or similar on a cloud service)? Thank you! submitted by /u/jptiger0 [link] [comments]

  • Takes forever to load everything

  • Advice about how to improve.
    by /u/RCAFinfo on June 11, 2024 at 11:03 pm

    Hello everybody, I have been working on a Wordpress website about the history of the Royal Canadian Air Force since 2021. I have amassed a collection of currently just under 1500 historic pdf magazines on the site available for download. I have done this in multiple ways... Google drive, I created a personal google drive to store these documents and made them available for download via shared links... this worked great. but had the following issues. My work filters google drive links and will not allow even access to specific download links. My google drive is now 200 GB and I risk exceeding this by the day and the cost for a personal drive that is in the 1 TB range makes me cringe. Not to mention this is a google drive.... Increased my hosting and uploaded the files to my hosting account using the wordpress download manager plugin. This worked... for a couple days until the 50+gb of files started to result in a clawback of my "unlimited" storage on my hosting account. Amazon S3... It makes me nervous with the bandwidth charges for download and the price per GB of storage seems higher. Cloudflare R2... cheaper and no bandwidth fees. So far where I am. Mostly. Nextcloud on a local hosting trial... we will see. The biggest problems are that every migration, trial.... results in hours of manual reconfiguration and I would love to see what other ideas are out there. ... what do you suggest? submitted by /u/RCAFinfo [link] [comments]

  • If you had to pick one of these builders, which would you do?
    by /u/ClassicallyBrained on June 11, 2024 at 10:43 pm

    I'm kinda new to Wordpress, but I have a lot of experience in other low-code web builders (Wix, Squarespace, Shopify). I definitely need a user friendly builder, I'm definitely no web developer, at best I'm a mediocre web designer. I'd like to know what you all think is the best. I'm only able to add up to 6 options to the poll, so if theres one you like that's not on this list, I'd love to hear it. If I could I would've added SeedProd and Visual Composer. If you can explain why you like your choice too, that'd be appreciated! I'm leaning towards Oxygen because it seems to be the cheapest option with a lifetime purchase. But I've also heard that the company is not supporting it as much as Breakdance. View Poll submitted by /u/ClassicallyBrained [link] [comments]

  • White space over dashboard button

  • Problem with Media Library
    by /u/Jaosp25 on June 11, 2024 at 9:14 pm

    Even when I try to upload a below 2560 px image, the media library says "The server cannot process the image. This can occur if the server is busy or does not have enough resources to complete the task. It may help to upload a smaller image. The maximum suggested size is 2560 pixels." . Furthermore, if I click "erase permanently" to another image, my browser says "Error deleting attachment". Why does it happen? Maybe does it because I have too much images in my library? https://preview.redd.it/31tvaguld06d1.png?width=494&format=png&auto=webp&s=5981d19393d4c6b5ec11f6ed9386c8f09ecf92e3 submitted by /u/Jaosp25 [link] [comments]

  • Spam Link Attack?
    by /u/Ill-Committee4900 on June 11, 2024 at 9:11 pm

    So today we looked at our Google search console and somehow we have 6775 external links, we realistically only had about 12. This is a fairly new website. It’s only been up since about March. I’m guessing that this is some sort of spam or something. I’m not sure. This seems insane to me. They are all super wild links to like dating sites or other promiscuous type sites, or they are a 404 page that doesn’t exist. I have no idea what to do other than disavowing the domains. Any ideas or feedback on what the heck this is all about? Why would somebody do this in the first place and why the heck would they target my website which is so little and probably not even known to 99.999999% of the population? submitted by /u/Ill-Committee4900 [link] [comments]

  • Recommended methods against hackers

    Hi! I have a Wordpress site where I advertise my services. I got password guessing and vulnerable plugin guessing attacks almost each day. I permanently block the IP of the attackers. I regularly backup the site. I regularly update the Wordpress and the plugins and I have a free Wordfence on it. For now this works, but I wonder how long. Are there other recommended supplementary solutions to protect the site or will Wordfence be enough on its own? What is your experience? submitted by /u/_inf3rno [link] [comments]

  • Password protect page with email address
    by /u/SimplicityFirst on June 11, 2024 at 7:14 pm

    Hi, I need to password protect a page on my website. I saw this at another website and it is the perfect solution for me: "enter your email address to view this page". So, no login required, just entering your email address. I've tested a few emails on that website, and the only thing that's required is an @ and a dot (.) in the "password", it doesn't need to be an existing email address. Something like [ksljdf@lkasdfjjk.wk](mailto:ksljdf@lkasdfjjk.wk) also works. The email addresses don't need to be saved in a database, it's just a way to "password protect" the page. Does anyone know the solution or plugin I can use? Thanks in advance! submitted by /u/SimplicityFirst [link] [comments]

  • Automatic plugin update of Advanced Custom Fields Pro
    by /u/Produkt on June 11, 2024 at 7:01 pm

    The paid theme I use (Physio - Physical Therapy & Medical Clinic WP Theme) came prepackaged with Advanced Custom Fields Pro. My license has lapsed and the theme creator says renewal of the subscription is only necessary for premium support, which I do not need. One drawback is that the ACF Pro subscription also expires, which means I cannot automatically update the plugin. A major problem I have noticed is that I do not get a warning if an ACF Pro update is available unless I go into the plugin page. If an update is available and I do not notice, my scheduled posts fail to post. This causes a major problem with my marketing emails when I send out an email about a new post and then users get a 404. I go into my WP Admin and notice that the scheduled post failed, and that's when I notice there's an update for ACF Pro. Is there anyway to automate the ACF Pro plugin updates without having to buy a license? Is there a flag I can set in my theme/functions file? submitted by /u/Produkt [link] [comments]

    hello! i am editing my wordpress page with elementor and i was wondering if i could make the header text (look at the arrow - it translates to "my wishlist") appear only when the wishlist below it has some items in it (otherwise it's just text and nothing below which is weird for most users because they haven't added anything to their wishlist yet). is there any custom code i can add? i hope my question wasn't too confusing. i will be grateful for any help that i receive. thank you! https://preview.redd.it/umd9t2lmkz5d1.png?width=1886&format=png&auto=webp&s=d487c8952a67c75fef1729b77d5d2b825b87c880 submitted by /u/Jurrrcy [link] [comments]
