  • Website features failing to load on clients browser but works everywhere else. Any ideas?
    by /u/SevenPointedStar on November 16, 2018 at 4:51 pm

    So I migrated a website over to the paid hosting service for the site to go live. Everything on my end looks to work fine. I sent it to friends who don't have the issue, I've tried it on 4 different platforms with 3 different browsers and it all works perfectly for me, but for the client it's not loading correctly? The failure lies obviously within Elementor plugin as it's the responsive features utilised in Elementor that have broken on their end. Any ideas why it's not loading for them, but seems to work EVERYWHERE else? submitted by /u/SevenPointedStar [link] [comments […]

  • Form and Charting Solution
    by /u/bsgman on November 16, 2018 at 4:49 pm

    Hello, I'm looking to capture a variety of questions from my users (1-5 scales, multiple choice, etc.) and I'd like to process this data and present back data to the user in both written and chart form. ​ My question is around existing solutions that can reduce the amount of development I need to complete such as a form tool, charting tool and this might be a stretch but some sort of logic mapping tool. Specifically: ​ Forms. It seems like CF7 + Database could be a good fit here to simply collect data where I need flexibility in capture. Would you agree or recommend something different? I am not sure exactly what type of charts I will need to display yet, but my key requirement is to be able to connect to a data source and select the data and format I would like to display (i.e.--Select User A, Recent response, fields 1-3, display as pie chart). My other requirement would be having some variety in the types of graphs such as a spider charts as an option. My third requirement is that these look nice or can be easily modified to match my templates. Lastly, I'm wondering if there is already some sort of tool that could help me map response logic to canned responses. For example, if you select A, B, C and D then Canned response #1 ="Blah blah blah"... either behind the scenes or as a WP plugin. I'm new to Wordpress and I realize this is a fairly custom build... but just wondering if anyone knows of any tools that would help my speed to market. ​ Thanks so much for your advice. submitted by /u/bsgman [link] [comments […]

  • Massive Disaster, need help!!
    by /u/keyzersoez on November 16, 2018 at 3:46 pm

    I think I really screwed something up here...I would love some help fixing the problem, or at least some help figuring out what is going on ​ So, I used wordpress.org CMS to create a site locally using MAMP servers. ***Possibly Relevant Info - I am using astra theme with elementor plugin. Everything was going fine until I tried to host it on bluehost. I started following a tutorial, and everything was going fine. I connected to the remote site via FTP, transferred the files, exported my local MAMP database, etc etc. I thought I was about finished, and started following tutorial instructions for replacing local host in the wp-options file. ​ **ALSO at this point I followed instructions that a different tutorial had me do, which was change the 'permalinks' structure setting on my WP CMS. This messed a lot of things up, and now my pages all point to page ID's or something, and I couldnt figure out how to get it back to the subdomain being the name of the page (home, about-me, etc). ​ I also changed the 'siteurl' and 'home url' or w/e settings on the wordpress CMS. ​ Anyways, something I did massively messed everything up. All my tabs that I had up for the local WP CMS admin now had a message saying 'session expired' and I need to log in again. But, my log in info isnt working... every time I try it gives me this error message 'The requested URL /wordpress/index.php was not found on this server.' . Also, NOTHING is formatted. All the content is there but I lost all formatting, even the Wordpress login page. ​ I WAS able to get the site up on my bluehost server, but the issues are the same. Further, when I try to log into my wordpress account via bluehost's WP login ('my sites', the options are 'manage site' and 'log in to wordpress') I get taken to this bluehost doc page about 'Wordpress Tools API Reference' . ​ ***POSSIBLE GOOD NEWS - I DO have a zipped XML file of the working version of the site I made before I started all of this, as well as a ZIP file of the database at that time. I assume this may be able to help but I'm not sure how to use it. KEEP IN MIND I am unable to log into any sort of Wordpress admin CMS, locally or on bluehost for some reason. ​ Something is really weird here. I suspect it has something to do with my routing. If anyone could point me in the right direction submitted by /u/keyzersoez [link] [comments […]

  • Event booking system based on location
    by /u/Darth_Delicious on November 16, 2018 at 3:21 pm

    Hi, I'm new to working on websites and i'm stuck. I'm trying to create an efficient workflow allowing users to find and book a place on to events/seminars in their local area. I'd really appreacite anyone's tips, tricks and suggestions! ​ The key points: The events/seminars are free to attend, but they have capacity limits (no requirement for e-commerce compatability). The events are all within 100 miles of each other, but run at different venues, with different dates and times. Approximately 40 events per year are run, with approximately 100 - 200 attendees per event. Confirmation of their booking needs to be sent to the attendee and the organiser. ​ Ideal user workflow: (multi stage breadcrumb form) Stage 1 - Pool selection User inputs post code (Zip Code - UK based firm) list venues with places available (In distance order) User selects venue prefered from the drop-down list list events in date order (with event times and seminar subject) User selects the event they want to attend Stage 2 - User Registration Number of tickets required, Name of user, email address etc. ​ Stage 3 - Summary of Booking Proceed? ​ Stage 4 - Confirmation of booking Thank you message ​ At the moment everything seems easy to achieve with form building, event managing and automated mail plugins, but i'm kind of failing at the first hurdle with sorting the events by proximity to the user. Any nudges in the right direction are greatly appreicated. Also premium plugins are welcome. ​ ​ submitted by /u/Darth_Delicious [link] [comments […]

  • Need help for university blog with wordpress
    by /u/Roby1k on November 16, 2018 at 11:19 am

    Hello everyone, I am a university student who, for a course, finds himself doing a blog with colleagues on wordpress. Unfortunately none of us is familiar with the site nor with the creation of blogs (we are two graduates in psychology and two in science of communication) and our professor is very precise and strict. I need advice on how to make aesthetically pleasing our blog. First of all we created a section on us where we put quite ugly avatars and we would like to change them, without inserting our photos because a girl is not good to upload her photos. Can you recommend me a solution for the creation of a section dedicated to us that is pretty? Not having any of us ever studied anything inherent in blogs and graphics we are very distressed in this respect. Would you have any advice on this? we have chosen as flymag theme and as colors of both the logo and the entire site we are thinking of using these: #09233F, #182e58, #07598D, #8FD7F1, #C5E8EF. Thank you very much already because I know that I am asking for a lot, but we are really in trouble and this exam is one of the most important of our course.

  • Second install on subdomain alongside main install - any problems?
    by /u/MorbidPenguin on November 16, 2018 at 6:43 am

    As the title states, I have a .com site with a Wordpress install in the root directory and the default "blog" set up as well as some pages. I want to make a second blog in a subdomain (e.g. .com/blog2/). From what I've read, I should be able to simply install it (from Bluehost or with the download/installer) and setup a new database and be good to go, right? Are there any problems with doing that or anything I need to be careful of? What if I wanted to make a second blog on the same domain? Would that be possible? Or perhaps to make a page that contains blog posts with a certain tag (i.e. posts with Tag1 would go to the main blog, and posts with Tag2 would go to a second blog/page) - would that be easier and/or doable? Thanks for any insight and help. It's appreciated. submitted by /u/MorbidPenguin [link] [comments […]

  • Redirect url on https localhost using social login for Facebook
    by /u/qwirkyrabbit on November 16, 2018 at 2:32 am

    I'm currently using the current code for Facebook social login on a website I'm making. I've already made a post on this in https://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/319369/redirect-url-on-https-localhost-using-social-login-for-facebook but I need to find the answer urgently hence why I cross-posted here as well. Under my opening body tag, I have this: ​ <script> window.fbAsyncInit = function() { FB.init({ appId : '[app_Id]', cookie : true, xfbml : true, version : 'v3.2' }); FB.AppEvents.logPageView(); FB.getLoginStatus(function(response) { statusChangeCallback(response); }); FB.logout(function(response) { // Person is now logged out }); function checkLoginState() { FB.getLoginStatus(function(response) { statusChangeCallback(response); }); } function statusChangeCallback(response) { console.log('statusChangeCallback'); console.log(response); // The response object is returned with a status field that lets the // app know the current login status of the person. // Full docs on the response object can be found in the documentation // for FB.getLoginStatus(). if (response.status === 'connected') { // Logged into your app and Facebook. console.log('Welcome! Fetching your information.... '); FB.api('/me', function (response) { console.log('Successful login for: ' + response.name); document.getElementById('status').innerHTML = 'Thanks for logging in, ' + response.name + '!'; }); } else { // The person is not logged into your app or we are unable to tell. console.log("This person has been logged in the app."); // document.getElementById('status').innerHTML = 'Please log ' + // 'into this app.'; } } }; (function(d, s, id){ var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) {return;} js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "https://connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); </script> ​ And on my template login page, I have this code: ​ echo '<div class="signin container">'; if ( ! is_user_logged_in() ) { // Display WordPress login form: $args = array( 'redirect' => admin_url(), 'form_id' => 'loginform-custom', 'label_username' => __( 'Username custom text' ), 'label_password' => __( 'Password custom text' ), 'label_remember' => __( 'Remember Me custom text' ), 'label_log_in' => __( 'Log In custom text' ), 'remember' => true ); // echo '<div class="fb-login-button" data-max-rows="1" data-size="small" data-button-type="login_with" data-show-faces="false" data-auto-logout-link="false" data-use-continue-as="false"></div>'; // echo '<script type="in/Login"></script>'; // echo do_shortcode('[TheChamp-Social-Linking]'); echo '<fb:login-button scope="public_profile,email" onlogin="checkLoginState();"> </fb:login-button>'; wp_login_form( $args ); } else { // If logged in: wp_loginout( home_url() ); // Display "Log Out" link. echo " | "; wp_register('', ''); // Display "Site Admin" link. } echo '</div>'; ​ Now, I've tested this code, consulting several sources to implement this and this was the latest I've tried. When clicking the login button, the behavior I'm expecting is for it to open a small pop-up for the login and then redirect to the redirect url (different from the current page) I've designated on the developer pages. However, the only behavior that I'm seeing is that after the login on the pop-up, it closes the pop-up, but it does not redirect the page. I get logged in to facebook though on a separate window, so there's that. Where am I going wrong with this? Can anyone help? submitted by /u/qwirkyrabbit [link] [comments […]
