• Is there a theme that only shows post thumbnails (or featured) for each post?
    by /u/John-Prime on August 5, 2021 at 5:09 am

    I would like a theme that looks like a TGP from the old days. Where you just have images showing (each image is featured image for the post) and when you click on the image, it leads you to that post. submitted by /u/John-Prime [link] [comments]

  • Is WordPress too expensive with all the subscription based plugins?
    by /u/davidsouza on August 5, 2021 at 5:09 am

    While I understand the subscription business model, but I feel like to have a very functional WordPress site it would take monthly expenses of > $100, at least for the sites I want to build. I am not sure if there is a good answer, just wondering what everyone thinks about this... submitted by /u/davidsouza [link] [comments]

  • How to add blog posts on a page? (custom design)
    by /u/Nic727 on August 5, 2021 at 3:10 am

    Hi, I know you can add a Wordpress Gutenberg "Blog post", but is it possible to have the same thing, but with a custom design? How much can you customize with this Gutenberg option? I would like to create pages for each countries I visited with a presentation, details and bellow all some blog post related to this country (category). I know it could be used with Gutenberg, but since it already has his own design, what can I do? ​ Thank you submitted by /u/Nic727 [link] [comments]

  • Can't access my Wordpress site after installing and removing phpmyadmin
    by /u/voodoo-sli on August 5, 2021 at 2:04 am

    Sorry in advance for the long post ​ I have Ubuntu Server 20.04 running in a VM. I successfully installed Wordpress, and was able to access it using the server's internal IP I was having an issue when I tried to access my site using my domain name (I'm using nginxproxymanager for this) where Wordpress would rewrite the URL to match the site URL, which is its internal IP. ​ I updated the site URL to match my domain, and I was no longer able to access my Wordpress site. ​ After some research, I found that I should install phpmyadmin, and update the site URL fields in the Wordpress database. I did this, but phpmyadmin seems to have modified my apache2 configuration, and I am no longer able to access my Wordpress site from the internal IP. I removed phpmyadmin and I still have the same problem. ​ Apologies for not understanding how all this works and is tied together, I'm trying to learn. If anybody could steer me in the right direction I would very much appreciate it. submitted by /u/voodoo-sli [link] [comments]

  • Locked out of site
    by /u/angec07 on August 5, 2021 at 1:56 am

    I did something stupid and I need some help. I spent many many hours trying to fix an issue with a theme earlier today and, without thinking, went to reset my theme using the WP Reset plugin. I don't know what I clicked in my sleep deprived state, but now all that is left of my site is the default home page that says "Just another wordpress site". As soon as I reset the site, I got an email saying that my new wordpress site has been succesfully created. I have no way of accessing my login page (none of my login URL's work). What's weird is that the top gray bar that has "new" and "dashboard" and my account username in the top right corner is still there, but whenever I click anything on it, it just refreshes the homepage. I also still have access to my Bluehost page and tried reseting my plugins using phpmyadmin, which did nothing. I also have no backups that I know of... I know I'm stupid; this has all just been the perfect set of circumstances to screw me over. Any help would be appreciated... Edit: I should also add that I really don't care about the content I lost; like I said, I had been working on some issues with a theme so I didn't get much done with this site. I more just care about regaining access to my WP account + my site associated to my domain so that I can start fresh. submitted by /u/angec07 [link] [comments]

  • Interview question from today
    by /u/BlitzAtk on August 5, 2021 at 1:03 am

    Hello, Today I was asked a few questions about WordPress: Have you used Gutenberg? What is your experience with ACF? What is your opinion on the headless approach with WordPress and React? There were a few other questions but they were related to config files and other hosting questions. My question is, how is the WordPress community taking the adoption of React paired with WordPress? I haven't touched Gutenberg. The last time I used WordPress was right when Gutenberg came out and I was in the process of starting a new job which didn't require WordPress skills. Thanks for reading. submitted by /u/BlitzAtk [link] [comments]

  • How to allow users to track their orders on the website? (not ecommerce)
    by /u/iotabadger on August 4, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    If I give a user an order number, is there a plugin or somehow allow them to enter it into the website somewhere, which will then show the status of their order e.g. In production > ready to be delivered > completed? How can one do this? I have a excel document with all the orders and what status each order is at but how can I have this visible for a customer on my WordPress website by allowing them to type in a order number and their postcode? Note: it's not ecommerce business, all orders are unique items built specifically for them after meeting them in person. submitted by /u/iotabadger [link] [comments]

  • Wordpress 5.8 still cannot upload webp images.
    by /u/bejiitas_wrath on August 4, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    I am using the latest Wordpress 5.8 and PHP 7.4 but I still cannot upload webp images. I get this error. This image cannot be processed by the web server. Convert it to JPEG or PNG before uploading. I cannot find an option in the php.ini to fix this. Is this a PHP GD issue? How can I even fix this problem? I do not have anything in my functions.php that could be conflicting and no image upload plugins. I am using Hostgator as my host, but other Hostgator users can upload just fine. I do not know how to fix this problem. submitted by /u/bejiitas_wrath [link] [comments]

  • What's the point of WooCommerce Geolocate with cache support if checkout can be exempted from caching and an address is provided?
    by /u/BroScrubYourBalls on August 4, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Recently, as my customer base has grown, I've had to deal with GST, VAT, and multiple tax zones as a result of where fulfillment centers were located and am no longer able to manually manage tax zones - there's just too many across the world. I installed the Woocommerce Automated Shipping & Tax plugin as well as the EU VAT Assistant plugin to make my life a little easier when it comes to tax rates across the globe. It appears those plugins automatically update the "Standard Tax Rates" area of the Woocommerce options. With that Automated Tax and Shipping plugin installed, I now see there's an area to automate setting the customer's default location via geolocation using a Maxmind Geo API integration. There's two settings for that - one without cache support and the other with cache support that places a query string on the site (i.e. .com/?v-hd1515afsdh). I've noticed, that upon enabling it with cache support, it results in additional redirect that's adds quite a bit of loading time to the site and is arguably unsightly. Maybe I'm misunderstanding the purpose of this plugin, but it appears upon testing that everything still works fine if I use it without cache support even though my site using caching because once a visitor actually hit the checkout/cart pages they're no longer visiting a cached version of the site and it will grab their actual geolocation instead of whatever might have been cached on other pages...and plus, I'm actually grabbing that information from them via the shipping form so grabbing a coordinate isn't really necessary. A.) Since tax zones and shipping at checkout are ultimately linked to a billing and shipping address (country, state, zip code), I'm not even sure why I need to grab a default customer location using the Geomind API. I could use some better clarification on that. B.) While my websites have page caching enabled, I've specifically exempted pages like "login, cart, and checkout" from being cached, so wouldn't that make cache support with a query string unnecessary? If that's the case, why are these query strings being set site wide for caching support if there's really only the checkout page applicable to tax and shipping variables? submitted by /u/BroScrubYourBalls [link] [comments]

    Hello! So I'm pretty new to Wordpress design and I'm using Elementor Pro in order to build my first webpage (loving it so far btw). I've come across a few websites that utilize a sort of "Page Vertical Page Navigator" and was wondering how I could implement such an effect through either CSS or Elementor itself. To describe the effect: when the user scrolls on the page they're viewing, the page snaps to the next section and continues this process throughout the page.

  • Is bluehost usually this slow?
    by /u/primezolo on August 4, 2021 at 5:03 pm

    I'm building a new website and as a beginner I chose to go with Bluehost, managed WordPress hosting because of all the positive things I've read about them. Well, I'm starting to think that was a huge mistake. Since March I've had my site go offline 4 times - with one of those times taking 6 days to finally come back online. On top of that, my site scores incredibly, disappointingly low when I test the speed, at 9 seconds to load. Other sites I've managed in the past with other hosting companies like LiquidWeb and SiteGround never had issues like this and both loaded in 1 second. I specifically signed up for the Grow plan to avoid issues like this, where they boast about 200+ servers, very high speeds and uptime, etc. But I receive none of this. submitted by /u/primezolo [link] [comments]

  • Client struggling with Wordpress / Jetengine / Elementor
    by /u/Eddimor on August 4, 2021 at 4:30 pm

    This is a rant. Today i delivered a website to a client and explained them how to prepare images, fill in content etc. For some content like headlines or excerpts we limited charcters so they can‘t mess up the design. This limitation was communicated before we started with the development. A few hours later i checked the site. wow. why did i even explain to them how to use it. They uploaded pictures in a random ratio- messing up the design. They called me and asked why the characters are limited and why they cant upload images like they want to. I explained to them that this is because of a consistent design. I dont get it. This is so frustrating. They Uploaded 10mb pictures to their old website and they told me they want an optimized site. So i explained to them how important proper image preparation is for a website. It is such a small effort! And they still complain. People don‘t get that a website is not a simple machine with one switch. A website = work & learning stuff. I hate clients like this. How do you guys handle this??? submitted by /u/Eddimor [link] [comments]

  • What your point of view on featured posts/pinned posts in Wordpress blog?
    by /u/Nic727 on August 4, 2021 at 2:55 pm

    Hi, I'm designing my website and at the moment I only plan to have my latest article showing up in date order (most recent first). However, I see some blogs having some carousel or a section of featured articles. I have two questions about that. Without using a plugin, is there a way to get the post loop array to only show pinned posts (to show in carousel)? Or to don't show them first (in normal way)? I feel like people will mostly click on featured posts and forget about the most recent ones. What do you think? Thank you submitted by /u/Nic727 [link] [comments]

  • Wordpress site keeps deleting/wiping itself for some reason. Any idea what's causing it?
    by /u/ProfGenki on August 4, 2021 at 2:00 pm

    I have an on-going issue with a Wordpress site that's literally driving me and the people I'm working with up a wall. The gist of it is - the site loses all its pages, posts, plugins, customizations, user admin permissions, and reverts to an ancient theme it was once using, as seen here: https://imgur.com/a/BNvEhEE In the last year or so it only happened a few times, so we didn't pay it too much attention since restoring a backup returned the site back to normal. In the past two days, however, it already happened four times. No idea what to do or how to fix it. Anyone have a similar experience or a possible solution? Is this related to database issues? Malware? Something else entirely? I'd really appreciate any help and/or tips on how to handle this! submitted by /u/ProfGenki [link] [comments]
