Is WP a good fit for this application?
by /u/calligraphic-io on January 20, 2019 at 11:53 pm
I am a developer, mostly working in Rails/React and native mobile. I rotate CMSs under my blog to stay familiar with them, and have used WP before and developed a custom plugin/theme. I am working with a client that is currently on Joomla! and the project is (1) upgrading their site from an older version and (2) developing a custom job board for the site (nothing suitable available in Joomla at present). It is a fairly complex community-oriented site, and there have been enough issues crop up that I began investigating other approaches that might serve the client better than continuing on Joomla. One major issue is long-term maintainability for the client without needing custom development work across upgrades; making the various pieces work together in Joomla requires numerous "connectors" or bridges between the various components, so that for example a third-party social component (user wall, like FaceBook) shows posts the user makes in the discussion forum. Some functionality of the site includes: Normal multi-user blogs (authorized users can create blog posts); Discussion forum; E-commerce, including monthly subscriptions that allow watching webinars; Job board; Events (schedule events, users can RSVP to them); Groups (common interest groups, like FaceBook Groups); Polls, surveys, and comments; Downloadable PDFs and other files; Affiliate / ad server functionality; Future plans for a learning management system and "user stores" in the e-commerce piece. I know plugins exist in the WP ecosystem for each of these functions, and have played with a few of them. But the site is complex enough that in my opinion, it is right on the verge of needing to move from a CMS to a bespoke application developed on a framework, probably Laravel given the resources the client has for managing it down the road. However, the bespoke approach doesn't make sense right now with the client's business plans - they are hoping to attract some investment funding for full-time sales staff on the webinar and job board product, and at least some production staff for the various products they have. I'm competent in the various issues like site optimization, hosting issues, etc. Is WordPress a good fit for a site this complex? submitted by /u/calligraphic-io [link] [comments […]
Need help with CF7 config, and why is it so f'ing shitty?
by /u/MycelusXIV on January 20, 2019 at 11:11 pm
Hey guys. Would appreciate if someone could help me figure out CF7. I am trying to set up a contact form so users can submit sales inquiries to [firstname.lastname@example.org](mailto:email@example.com) but despite it saying it successfully sent, I get no email. I'm not sure how the most popular contact form plugin is so unintuitive and such garbage it honestly blows my mind, but it integrates into my theme so I'm trying to give it a shot. Form <div class="wpcf7-inline-wrapper"> <p class="wpcf7-inline-field">[text* your-firstname placeholder "First Name"]</p> <p class="wpcf7-inline-field">[text* your-lastname placeholder "Last Name"]</p> </div> <div class="wpcf7-inline-wrapper"> <p class="wpcf7-inline-field">[email* your-email placeholder "Email"] </p> <p class="wpcf7-inline-field">[text your-number placeholder "Contact Number"] </p> </div> [select* menu-739 "Budget" "$800-1000" "$1000-1200" "$1200-1500" "$1500-2000" "$2000-2500+"] <p>[textarea your-message placeholder "Message"] </p> [submit class:btn class:btn-accent class:btn-block "Submit Inquiry"] Would appreciate if someone could help me quick. Form is config'd as such: To: [your-email] From: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Sales Inquiry Additional Headers: Blank Message Body: A sales inquiry has been submitted. submitted by /u/MycelusXIV [link] [comments […]
Help with creating a new e-commerce website
by /u/Carrison1316 on January 20, 2019 at 10:17 pm
I’m looking to set up a website for my mail in phone buyback business and have no experience in this at all. I was quoted $1200 for what I want and need to make sure that’s reasonable... Im looking for something very similar to gazelle.com. I already have my hosting and I’m going through wordpress using elementor pro. For the site to function properly, I’m going to need a plug in incorporated that auto generates a mail in label with each order. Not 100% sure how many pages and products I’ll need, but the $1200 was quoted at 10 pages 8 products along with the automated mail in label setup... is this fair pricing? Does anyone have any recommendations on where to go for what I need? Thanks! submitted by /u/Carrison1316 [link] [comments […]

How should I handle creating a bespoke site with multiple, complex unique page layouts?
by /u/devilmaydance on January 20, 2019 at 9:15 pm
We are redoing our company website and I really want to do it bespoke with ACF instead of relying on a page builder. However, the site design specifications for the MVP has something like two dozen unique page designs (with crossover with the header and footer obviously, but a lot of variation in each page's body layout), and due to losing a bunch of time discovering Gutenberg is a nonstarter for us, I'm left with not a lot of time to do this and a hard deadline of a little under a month from now I can fall back on a page-builder if necessary, but I really want to do this the "right" way. That said, it does not seem feasible to hand-code 24 page templates and hook up the content for each with individual ACF fields in ~3 weeks. I've considered trying to simulate my own page builder functionality with ACF's Flexible Content fields, but the amount of options I would need to create to accurately match the designs would be daunting and at that point I might as well use a page-builder anyway. Setting aside the time-crunch, what is the "right" way to approach a WP site with many unique page layouts? submitted by /u/devilmaydance [link] [comments […]

What to be aware of when creating a website that invites user submitted photos?
by /u/oldschooldads on January 20, 2019 at 7:06 pm
I need to have a website built where one of the fundamental purposes will be to allow users to submit photos. With no experience in this area, my intuition is that in order to receive photo submissions, I'll also need to "store" them somewhere, which has to have a cost, but I have no idea if the cost is material on a per picture basis, or if it's fraction of a penny. As things currently stand, I would expect to receive about 10k photo submissions per year, but I'd hope to grow that to 100k over time. As an example of the photo submission option in thinking of, here's a link to a well known site that does the same thing. https://awkwardfamilyphotos.com/ submitted by /u/oldschooldads [link] [comments […]

Plugin to display posts by tag?
by /u/MrShiva on January 20, 2019 at 5:57 pm
My site currently displays posts in chronological order, newest at the top. I'd like to be able to add a tag, e.g. "Front Page", and by default display only posts with that tag, still in reverse chronological order. I'd also like users to be able to change the order of posts they see, either by tags or date order. Is there a plugin that provides this functionality? submitted by /u/MrShiva [link] [comments […]

Youtube Gallery Plugins - Failed to load resource: net::ERR_BLOCKED_BY_CLIENT
by /u/Troyseph_ on January 20, 2019 at 5:11 pm
Goal: Display youtube channel gallery on webpage using shortcode from youtube plugin: Feed Them Social. Issue: Youtube gallery will not display on webpage. Have attempted to use various youtube plugins and the same issue occurs. Turned off adblock, ran webpage in incognito mode, and on Safari which still did not resolve the issue. The plugin displayed a gallery two to three times while testing yesterday, haven't been able to get it to work since. Current workaround is the: Video Grid with Lightbox plugin, but do not want to rely on this as the gallery will not update when a new video is added to the channel. Spent about 5 hours yesterday trying to figure out this issue and still have yet to find solution. Errors displayed in console (same errors w/ or w/out adblock active) Footer of gallery displays but not the gallery submitted by /u/Troyseph_ [link] [comments […]

CSS problem? Glyphicons are not working
by /u/ElenorShellstrop on January 20, 2019 at 3:08 pm
Hi, I'm having a problem where glyphicons icons are broken (showing a blank square) and I found this thread with a list of problems it could be: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/18369036/bootstrap-3-glyphicons-are-not-working I don't know how to implement the fixes. I tried a few but didn't get very far. I've rewritten the bootstrap files from bootstrap 3 to 4 and even tried to change the font pack. I'm stuck now. What else could I try? How much would it cost for someone to clean up the abysmal coding and fix or replace the broken icons? I'm using Explicit from Industrial Themes. It's a wordpress theme with a lot of pagebuilders and seems to be incredibly buggy, but changing the theme would take me forever (I have like 10000 posts). Here's the relevant part of the stylesheet.css: https://pastebin.com/R7nXGbnn If it helps. submitted by /u/ElenorShellstrop [link] [comments […]
Blogger to Wordpress redirect for specific posts?
by /u/KVillage1 on January 20, 2019 at 2:23 pm
I am working on a site for a client where i transferred his whole blogger blog to a new wordpress site. I was able to redirect successfully from blogger to the new site which is great but all links that have to do with old blog redirect to new site front page of the blog. If somebody happens to come across an older post from 2015 or whatever and clicks it it still goes to front page...is there any way to have someone click the old blog link of a post from years ago and end up on the same post on the new site? Thank you! submitted by /u/KVillage1 [link] [comments […]

Looking for recommendations on tutorials which teach Professional Dev Stack and Environment Set up

Hi, I'm a .Net developer looking to get into PHP and WordPress development, I'm used to working with a full stack of tools from the front end, to back end within a CI / CD pipeline, a lot of the tutorials I've come across so far only teach setting up Wamp or Xamp locally and working within a simple text editor. Can anyone recommend any video tutorials or books which teach you how a professional WordPress developer would work and set up their dev stack, dev environments and typical deployment tools and processes? I found this post which lists details of a work stack, this is the sort of thing I'm looking to learn more about. Thanks submitted by /u/TheKingsLegit [link] [comments […]

Free/paid plugin to implement posts/pages/media attachments hreflang on different domains, different TLDs
by /u/polodadiscoverer on January 20, 2019 at 10:08 am
Hi there. I have a few domains branded under a single name, but different TLDs, for example: myfancywebsite.com myfancywebsite.es myfancywebsite.it myfancywebsite.de I'm trying to hreflang them. I couldn't find anything within the repository, and WPML, the only one who seems to do the job, is pretty expensive. Most of the hreflang-supporting plugins are useful for folder or subdomain of the same domain, not for international spread. ccTLDs help me rank better locally. And I was thinking, if it doesn't exist, it shouldn't be expensive (long term comparison to the WPML) to code one metabox attached to posts, pages and media attachement pages. I don't need fancy, just those lines. <link rel="alternate" hreflang="de" href="https://www.myfancydomain.de/post-or-page-or-attachment-title/"> Anyone?

Client says hostgator takes 24 hours for changes, and other host takes minutes

Hi guys, Just asking for your experiences as I have someone working on helping us set up a landing page for my website. They said that the reason theyre slow is that hostgator takes 24 - 48 hours for any changes to happen and other host usually takes minutes. Is this your experience as well? Just asking as I know nothing and dont want to be taken for a fool and waste a few days switching hosts. submitted by /u/laughhouse [link] [comments […]
