  • Complianz Plugin (change warning language)
    by /u/thegoodfriend1994 on April 8, 2020 at 12:12 am

    Hi everyone, I'm develop my own website (both in Spanish and English) and I'm trying to implement "Complianz" cookie warning plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/complianz-gdpr/). Everything is working smoothly, but I have JUST a little issue: As you may see in the Spanish landing page (http://dev-legal321.pantheonsite.io/), the cookie warning is displaying correctly in Spanish and its link is redirecting to the Spanish Privacy Policy (this is OK!). HOWEVER, I cannot seem to find any option allowing me to have an English version of the warning in the English version of my site (http://dev-legal321.pantheonsite.io/en/). I have tried to switch to the English version of the landing page on my Dashboard and editing the landing page, but it seems that the Complianz plugin only has one "environment" to edit the Cookie Warning. Thus, I'm not being able to have an English Warning with a link redirecting to the English Privacy Policy. Have you guys used this plugin and worked with two languages? Is there an easy way to solve this? Thank you so much! Regards. submitted by /u/thegoodfriend1994 [link] [comments]

  • How do I use the full width of my page for content? Trying to teach myself WP using Elementor and Ultimate Blocks, but always have a white space on the right hand side.
    by /u/1THFC1985 on April 7, 2020 at 11:28 pm

    Any ideas how to change this? The only thing using that space would be if I placed a menu down the right hand side, but very few pages need it. Seems like it would better used having content take up more of the page rather than cramped into 2 3rds and a big white space. submitted by /u/1THFC1985 [link] [comments]

  • getting started with "ultimate blocks"
    by /u/1THFC1985 on April 7, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    I have just installed the ultimate blocks plugin and was hoping to start playing with it and see what simple upgrades I can make to my site (im a total novice). I installed it, and now have it there on my menu, but when I go to a post or page, I don't have any different options than the regular editor. Any video tutorial I can find the page is different when you go to edit, and it's clear that you're using the ultimate blocks. They don't seem to be doing anything differently to my install. Before downloading I played with the free demo on their site, so was excited to take that into my site, but seems like I am not getting the options to use it. Do I need to do anything else to enable it? submitted by /u/1THFC1985 [link] [comments]

  • Do you need the original theme installed after creating a child theme?
    by /u/2020-2050_SHTF on April 7, 2020 at 9:01 pm

    Hi, I've had very little experience with WordPress. About 8 years ago, I made a site for a charity and did a child theme based on 2010 (or at least that's what it said in my child theme's notes). It's been chugging along quite nicely, but yesterday I was looking at their set up and noticed they didn't have the original 2010 theme installed!? Is this ok? Is it possible the theme has been running without an update for all this time, or is that not how it works? submitted by /u/2020-2050_SHTF [link] [comments]

  • Plugin for video call/screen sharing appointments
    by /u/Norrske on April 7, 2020 at 9:00 pm

    Hey guys, I am from a small startup. We provide a widget for websites that allows you to create a configurable questionnaire, show a result page and make an appointment for video-based interview (branded confirmation/reschedule emails included). Example: You want to buy a kitchen, so you are asked some questions about your room (size, style, colors etc.) and then you can set up an appointment with a consultant who will plan your kitchen. I am not super-familiar with the wordpress ecosystem so do you think it makes sense for us to transforming this into a wordpress plugin? What do you thin about a reasonable pricing point for such a tool? submitted by /u/Norrske [link] [comments]

  • Where to start! Building a wordpress website for a dentistry office.
    by /u/elimanning234 on April 7, 2020 at 8:53 pm

    Hello there. I have recently taken upon a task to build a website from scratch for a dentist office. They have no online presence at all and they have asked me to do for a price and I said I’ll get back to them. I decided to use Wordpress since I don’t know a thing about coding. The client doesn’t really care to much for detail really. Just more so of just being online is important. I have read that Wordpress.org is better to use for more options I guess and such and some money outta pocket. But I’m just gonna go with .com just cause... I’m just really looking for a step by step guide or manual in making a website simple yet a little flare to it. And once I do that how much do you think I should charge? Also is there a way where I make the website and transfer to the client and let him deal with updating the website in the future? Should I bring a contract into this just to be straight forward and direct? Any input and advice would be appreciated Eli. submitted by /u/elimanning234 [link] [comments]

  • How to update PDF file uploads without changing the URL?
    by /u/marxistdeadlift on April 7, 2020 at 7:52 pm

    Hi, I have PDFs associated with Products. These PDFs are often replaced with updated product information. When I replace the files, the links to the old PDFs get broken. I would like to keep the URL consistent so that when I visit the URL for the old file, I will be redirected to the new file. What is the best way to do this?

  • What can you do about bots trying to hack into your site?
    by /u/greenismytree on April 7, 2020 at 6:28 pm

    We manage hundreds of WordPress sites and there's one in particular that's been giving us alerts for a couple of months now about "bad login attempts". I have no idea what it is about this site that's different from the others or why anyone would care to hack it. Anyway, we've added some security plugins, a login captcha, and backed up the site. Is there anything else we can do?? submitted by /u/greenismytree [link] [comments]

  • Login issues
    by /u/HeadFullOfStories123 on April 7, 2020 at 6:05 pm

    Hi all. Users are reporting to me that when making an account, they get stuck on 'Sending user info, please wait...' I assume this is connected to BuddyPress but not certain. Any ideas what can be causing this? There is no captcha, no verification email. I could not replicate the issue but some users told me it happens. I tried clearing all cache, disabling plugins I didnt need, did not work. There are two drop-in plugins, maintenance.php and db-error.php - i heard this might also be causing it, but have not deleted the files yet. Is there a possible connection? Happens here. submitted by /u/HeadFullOfStories123 [link] [comments]

  • Header in Elementor with Smart Slider 3
    by /u/HoardingMinimalist on April 7, 2020 at 5:48 pm

    Let me preface this with saying that I am new to Wordpress... so if this is obvious I'm sorry. ​ I am using OceanWP (why? it was recommended. Idk if choosing a different theme would fix this) and have designed everything with Elementor. Honestly I don't really see why I need a theme since I designed practically everything in elementor anyway. I also have a smart slider at the top of the website. What I'm looking to do is have a logo on top of the smart slider in the top left corner. When you hover over it, it changes color and you can click on it to take you to the home page. In the top right corner there will be a series of clickable headings that will take you to different sections of the page. When you hover over these they will change color as well. The whole group at the top will be in a transparent gradient going from dark at top to transparent at bottom. Hopefully this makes sense. Something like this. ​ Currently I have a header that is transparent (not gradient transparent) and the logo dims when you hover, but I can't change that color. I did this through the "customize" section. ​ I've been looking for a free workaround for this, but I haven't had any luck. Adding a parallax effect to the smart slider would also be nice... but it looks like the only way I found to do it is to purchase smart slider 3 pro or possibly get rid of smart slider and buy elementor pro. ​ Anyway... hopefully someone has an idea of how to do this. submitted by /u/HoardingMinimalist [link] [comments]

  • Plugin that saves form data that can be viewed by user
    by /u/DongGookLee on April 7, 2020 at 5:38 pm

    I'm looking for a plugin that allows users to input data into a form but then that data is saved to their account and they can view it at any time. The function of this will be a sort of daily diary entry, but if possible i'd like some fixed options in a drop down box. Then there'd be a page where they can see all their previous entries. Obviously this would have to be a private individual form (i.e. no other users could see other users entries) and I'm currently using UltimateMemeber and Restrict content pro to have individual user accounts. Any help would be great! submitted by /u/DongGookLee [link] [comments]

  • The best course of action coming from a very slow WP Ecommerce site?
    by /u/M0U5EY on April 7, 2020 at 5:30 pm

    Hi Guys, One way or another I have come into the position of sorting out the website for a small eCommerce site. The site has been built on WP, hosted by Bluehost with the primrose theme, has around 60 products some of which are collections of other products and has an initial loading time of 20 ish seconds.... It is clear to see that something needs to change. I didn't build the site initially but it is now my job to not make it awful. The options I have considered are, re-building the site with another hosting service such as WP Engine or Site ground, or re-building the site on a website builder like Wix or Shopify (leaning towards Shopify but it is more expensive). I understand that this is a WP subreddit but was wondering if you guys have any recommendations for me? I have little to no website building experience but I do have virtually infinite time at the moment (student without work to do) but would like to have the new site up within a month or so. Any help or advice much apprecited. submitted by /u/M0U5EY [link] [comments]

The event will take place on June 4-6, and the team has even arranged a virtual Contributor Day on the 4th. The event will be completely free and anyone who bought a ticket for this year’s conference will be refunded by April 10. This is a great way to feel connected in such an uncertain time.

  • Gateway or payment plugin that allows raffle ticket payment?
    by /u/jorgeagh on April 7, 2020 at 5:04 pm

    Turns out, I got a project request this week to create a raffle website. Creating it is really not an issue. The issue is installing a payment gateway that doesn't prohibit raffles, so people can pay online for their ticket. Does anyone know a provider that can do so? So far I've discarded 2Checkout, Openpay and Braintree. I'll check Paypal's policies, but it doesn't look too promising... submitted by /u/jorgeagh [link] [comments]
