  • Cant open my Website after changing the Url
    by /u/MrMoMo10 on September 29, 2020 at 5:04 pm

    I have to create a Website with Wordpress for a school project. Im using Xampp to host it local. So far I was able to reach the website with "localhost/worpress/wordpress" and the Backend with "localhost/wordpress/wordpress/wp-admin". Now the mistake I did: In the Backend Settings there is an option to change the Backend and Frontend URLs. I changed them to "localhost/projectname/" and "localhost/projectname-admin/" After that its not possible to reach anything anymore doesnt matter what url I use. Is there a way to change it back? I searched in the wp-config.php etc. files but didnt find anything. I hope someone of you can help me submitted by /u/MrMoMo10 [link] [comments]

  • Must enable Google Cloud Platform Billing to display Google business reviews
    by /u/mssinvisible on September 29, 2020 at 4:58 pm

    So, I refuse to do this. Partly because I'm not the holder of the card for the business and I don't want to risk any additional costs. Before I tell my higher ups they have to do this, is there a way to manually add Google reviews instead of using the current WP plugins that require us to enable a billing account? I don't mind having to go in and create a new review every time we get one. We're a small enough business right now that they happen infrequently enough, so it's easy to stay on top of. Does anyone have any suggestions/recommendations on how to display Google reviews on our website without having to set up a GCP billing account—and thus, not using the current WP Plugins that use the Google API? Are there any widgets you know of that I could use to build my own Google review instead of importing them automatically? submitted by /u/mssinvisible [link] [comments]

  • Any good guides for someone that has decent knowledge of css, html and javascript?
    by /u/Zlastpolarbear on September 29, 2020 at 4:58 pm

    I know this question probably gets asked quite a bit but I couldn't find any guides that are designed for people that already have some knowledge of CSS, HTML, Javascript and even PHP to a lesser degree. Since a lot of jobs in my area require wordpress knowledge, I was hoping it would be tailored towards something that would give you the knowledge required for most entry roles. ​ Thanks for any feedback 🙂 submitted by /u/Zlastpolarbear [link] [comments]

  • Best Adsense Plugins
    by /u/jasonsizzle on September 29, 2020 at 4:16 pm

    Hey all, A client of mine is launching a news/podcast site and wants to include Adsense ads. I have looked through dozens of reviews and I am a bit overwhelmed and figured I would ask you guys for advice. What Adsense plugin do you use and why? Keep in mind, the person who will be adding/updating content isn't too tech savvy so I was hoping to find something would either a) have shortcodes or b) auto-inserts after 3 paragraphs. Obviously, responsiveness is key as well. The client only wants the ads to show on the blog posts so there's that. Thanks in advance! submitted by /u/jasonsizzle [link] [comments]

  • Instagram live chat plugin
    by /u/Ecry on September 29, 2020 at 4:07 pm

    Hi all, I'm looking for a plugin that enables live chat with our client's Instagram account. Social widgets like Callbell or Chaty only provides a widget and clicking on it brings you to the page, that's it. Another work around we can have would be a contact form that sends information directly to the client's Instagram DM. Unfortunately, these are the requirements so adding to WA or Messenger are really the last resort if Instagram chat is not possible. Thanks in advance! submitted by /u/Ecry [link] [comments]

  • Looking for a recommended directory plugin (paid preferred) that allows people to sign up and add a location to a map as well as create a profile page for them.
    by /u/OPengiun on September 29, 2020 at 3:52 pm

    A directory plugin that takes payment to allow people to make 'premium' map listings on your website map. Also creates a new profile page that the user can then customize with their info. Not sure if this is something to tie into WooCommerce, or something that can be achieved with just one paid plugin (if that exists). Any recommendations help, even if it doesn't achieve the exact needs. Looking for options. TTY <3 submitted by /u/OPengiun [link] [comments]

  • Wordpress caching layer across web cluster
    by /u/jxv110 on September 29, 2020 at 3:26 pm

    we have a web property that gets 2m+ unique users a month and need to shore it up with some significant load testing / scalability in case it gets a sudden traffic surge from a famous tweet or other such event. The wordpress site lives behind cloudflare in AWS across 4 web servers and a sizeable Aurora MySQL cluster. What is the best way to implement a memory cache? Memcache or Redis? Should we use elasticache on each individual server (this way the caches are independent - probably not ideal) or across the entire cluster? Can we point the same wordpress cache plugin on each server to the same elasticache URL? submitted by /u/jxv110 [link] [comments]

  • Is it possible to create a custom data source for a wp-json API?
    by /u/Tomnnn on September 29, 2020 at 3:02 pm

    --edit: SOLVED This is apparently very common - my bad, new to wordpress. You can either look up register_post_type or use a plugin like CPT UI (custom post type ui) and then it's very simple. Not super intuitive when you're new to CMS stuff, but the custom data will be a custom type of post. ​ --original post: Hey. I took a short venture into creating an api for a page the other day and now I'd like some CMS-esque way for the data for that API to be added/edited/etc. Is there a way to have a wordpress post manager/editor sort of ui? It's just a few fields - a name, a description, and a link. Those would be managed by a site admin and a plugin on a page would read from it. submitted by /u/Tomnnn [link] [comments]

  • JAMStack inside a WordPress theme
    by /u/thatgrungekid on September 29, 2020 at 2:26 pm

    Hi all! I have been experimenting with JAMStack and the WordPress REST API and was wondering about a hosting setup with a Headless WordPress. Most of the online tutorials have your JAMStack set up on Netlify, with WordPress in a separate host. What I want to achieve is having my JAMStack site within my WordPress theme directory, and served from there - something like this: public_html wp-content themes my-theme functions.php ... etc _site <- Built static JAMStack files (index.html etc) Then, all requests instead of going through page.php and post.php, etc will go to the relevant path under _site directory in my theme. The reason for this is so that I can keep my admin Dashboard on the same URL and hosting as the front-end. I would then have some automated build command that runs anytime content is saved in WordPress. Is such a thing possible? I would imagine it could use some .htaccess trickery but can't seem to figure it out. submitted by /u/thatgrungekid [link] [comments]

  • What exactly is "minti_image" and how does it work?
    by /u/ScooberyDoobery on September 29, 2020 at 1:45 pm

    As the general-purpose IT guy at a small company, I've inherited the responsibility of maintaining our WordPress website which was built about 3 years ago and has never been touched since. Needless to say, I have ZERO WordPress experience. Anyways, we want to add a new button to one of our pages as a link, but it uses this kind of code to spawn them: [vc_column width="1/3"][minti_image img="14750" lightbox="2" url="[A URL]"][/vc_column][/hide][/vc_row] Now making this button would be all well and good... if I could figure out what that arbitrary number attached to "img" meant. As far as I can tell it points to some file, but I have no clue how I'd get a brand new file to work like this. I can't find a single piece of documentation online about this "minti" stuff; anybody here have a clue? submitted by /u/ScooberyDoobery [link] [comments]

  • Google Ads redirecting to Chinese website
    by /u/Thunderwump on September 29, 2020 at 8:29 am

    We use Google Ads to direct traffic to our [Wordpress} insurance consultancy website. We've recently seen a fall-off in our traffic and after some digging around we've identified that our website has been hacked and all of our Final URLs on our Google Ads are redirecting to a Chinese website. We track site visitors using Clicky.com and we think we can trace it back to about 10 days ago when there was a spike of visits overnight where the user was accessing a ton of spurious non-existent URLs on our site. Has anybody else had this happen to them and any suggestions or ideas as to what is going on? Thanks in advance. submitted by /u/Thunderwump [link] [comments]
