[FREE] Release Notes

Talk about plugins - Fri, 10/06/2017 - 14:26

Hey all,

Shameless plug(in) here. So I frequently develop custom themes for clients and wanted to keep track of new features so they could easily see what was new with each update after I deployed it (1.0, 1.1, 1.01, etc.). So, anyways, I created a plugin called Release Notes. Check if out if you're interested at https://wordpress.org/plugins/release-notes/.

If you have ideas or suggestions, send 'em my way! I'm hoping to make this useful for developers like me that enjoy having a history of changes to a theme.

Growth Agency Website Design - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Fri, 10/06/2017 - 14:14
In order to grow our agency, we need a new design that outlines our knowledge and skills.
The website is the cornerstone of our acquisition campaigns: our prospects will book meetings with us, get in touch with the team and inform themselves about our services.

The website is divided in several sections outlined below.
There’s no brand guideline defined yet, but there’s a logo that can be used as a basis.

Expected output:
- chosen font, colors and ratios for website design
- design in PSD files (will be converted into HTML/Divi WordPress by our team)
- copyrights entirely transferred to frimgle SPRL
- designed for responsive design (Desktop + Mobile)


All content and constraints are explained here: https://paper.dropbox.com/doc/Growth-Agency-Website-Design-0Yzq4F8WQVRhfUZYICDu9?_tk=share_copylink

Please ask your questions and let me know when you can start and finish.

Stefan

Problems with Server connecting to Wordpress Database - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Fri, 10/06/2017 - 02:03
Hi am having trouble with my wordpress Database connecting to my Server and have had the following from my server:

It looks like the scripting on your account is causing heavy resource usage which can cause your sites to load slower than normal or can also cause timeout errors for some visitors during heavy usage times. You and your web developer will need to review the resource usage of your account and take steps to reduce the load your scripting is creating. Please see the following knowledge base guides on resource usage:

Resource limit information
https://www.a2hosting.com/kb/cpanel/cpanel-logging-features/resource-limit-information

How to monitor resource usage
https://www.a2hosting.com/kb/developer-corner/linux/monitoring-resource-usage

We can see there were a number of calls to your WordPress heartbeat (admin-ajax.php) for this account yesterday. You and your web developer will want to review this article in our knowledge base and help configure the heartbeat for WordPress so it is not causing heavy resource usage:

https://www.a2hosting.com/kb/installable-applications/optimization-and-configuration/wordpress2/configuring-the-wordpress-heartbeat

Just to further assure you that we are talking about a high-intensive usage here, here are the top 10 calls made to your website along with the top 10 IP's that were accessing it:

25651 174.129.242.248

There were a number of calls to the wp-cron.php file which could have caused or contributed to this heavy load. You and your developer will need to evaluate the plugins on your site that are causing this heavy load. You will want to evaluate their configuration and optimization to reduce the load they are creating. You can see that we a pretty high usage on some calls made by you wp-api, which you will need to further review with your developer and further you will want to review the suggestions above and see if you can make some configuration changes to WordPress to reduce the resource usage and prevent the resource restrictions that cause the site not to load correctly.

I need copy writing and some content created.

It's a website that sells friendship bracelets that are handmade by indigenous people from Mexico. We help support and distribute their bracelets in different locations.

My idea is to transform the website into an online resource for schools, churches and people to purchase the bracelets for fundraising (buying in bulk).

The website needs improved with the checkout but most importantly needs help with the idea and selling the idea of the bracelets for fundraising

Here are websites that sell products for fundraising

UX/Design Review/Revision of Landing Page for Content-Marketing E-Commerce - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Thu, 10/05/2017 - 20:22
We are creating a new landing page that uses content (text and images) to attract and engage an audience, as a means of interesting them in purchasing products.  So the landing page will be at once have attributes of an article page and an e-commerce product page.

We had a draft in Adobe Illustrator which we'd like revisited, refined and potentially re-invented. You will propose a plan for improving the landing page. The goal is ultimately to sell products, so these need to be prominent, but the article's topic is why the individuals landed on this page.

This will be a Wordpress article template, so we have to stay within the possibilities of Wordpress. We will not be using a graphic designer for each new story, so the template has to be flexible enough to accommodate different sizes of photos and different #s of products, depending on the article .

Your bid needs to contain an estimate of how many hours this assignment will take you, and a description of what you would do to improve it.  A PDF is attached. You will be provided with an .ai

[HELP] What plugin for sound streaming

Talk about plugins - Thu, 10/05/2017 - 14:09

I'm helping my cousin develop a new web page that will contain sound files used for meditation and others. It's going to be a page where you subscribe and pay for access. When subscribed you're freely allowed access to all sound files. All sounds should be available by streaming so nobody can download them and end subscription. She has also talked about making an smartphone app for this, but I belive that this could be handled by the webpage alone. I have some knowledge in using wordpress, my main web product has untill recently been a norwegian made cms that I have used for nearly 17 years. Wordpress however has more plugins so thats why I have solved some pages here. Question is: I think its hard to find the right plugins to solve this. Thats when someone told me that Reddit has many knowledged users. I would be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction to solve this tasks. Task1: Sound streaming solution Task2: Member payment solution. Regards Trond

Need an expert to consult on how to best manage Multi-regional Wordpress website, URLs and Google Webmaster Tools - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Wed, 10/04/2017 - 19:26
We are about to release a brand new Wordpress website and are looking for an expert to consult to us on how best to manage our multi-regional website, the URLS and Geo targeting.

For example when a visitor in Australia goes to our .com.au website they remain on .com.au. We don't want to have two websites where we need to update the content on both.

Please be very experienced Multi-regional websites and Google Webmaster Tools.

Refresh or re-create my website - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Wed, 10/04/2017 - 19:22
My current website is old and stale. I'd like to re-do it. It is located at consultgupta.com.  

It will need to be optimized for web and mobile viewing such that I don't need to constantly update it.

I will need some design ideas and then a buildout of the relatively simple site.

You will need to let me know what content is required and you will need to source relevant images (unless they are of me, of course)

Here are quick examples of wordpress templates that may fit with my priorities (I defer to a designer to come up with a few directional options):


a) THEMES HIGHLIGHTING CASE STUDIES

1. http://www.seowptheme.com/case-studies/

2. https://www.cssigniter.com/demo2/?theme=businesstwo


b) BLACK AND WHITE WITH a POP OF COLOR (like your current website)

1. http://preview.themeforest.net/item/thegem-creative-multipurpose-highperformance-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/16061685?sort_priority_group=meta-business&ref=athemez&clickthrough_id&redirect_back=true   (look at the theme called 'business multi-purpose’)

2. theme name: Modernize (https://themeforest.net/item/modernize-flexibility-of-wordpress/1264247?s_rank=20) - see below for how I suggest you execute the theme:
modernize


c) THEMES THAT HIGHLIGHT CLIENT LISTS

1.Template name: Lawyer and Attorney - you can highlight # of clients, size, # in S&P, etc.

[HELP] Advice on Lightboxes

Talk about plugins - Wed, 10/04/2017 - 17:52

I preemptively apologize if I should have posted this on a different subreddit.

 

I developed and launched a photography website: www.endlessformsphotography.com despite zero experience in web design or development. I have hit a dead end and need some help.

 

The problem: My lightbox.

 

I have successfully customized my lightbox to fit my needs with two exceptions:

 

I do not like how it displays image descriptions.

I can get it to appear at a fixed location centered at the bottom of the page (right now the element is not displayed), but it’s problematic for two reasons (aside from the fact that I still cannot get it to overlay in a different order despite using the z-index). (1) For vertical images, I would have to display them smaller to account for the size of the description. (2) For horizontal images, the description is far removed from the image.

Finding a way to position the description relative to the image may resolve the second problem, but not the first, as I do not want the display size of the image to be contingent on the length of the description. Ideally, I would like the image description to pop up as an overlay that can be opened and closed as desired. It would have to be responsive on a phone as well.

 

It is not responsive to swiping on a phone or tablet.

Right now, the only way to advance between images when the lightbox is open is to click the arrows or hit the left and right arrows on the keyboards. This is an okay user experience while on a computer, but I would like swiping to be possible on a mobile device. Swiping is not only a more pleasant user experience, but it also means I could get rid of the arrows and then display the images at 100% of the display size.

 

Here’s some (maybe) relevant information about the website and its construction:
- The website was developed via Wordpress using the Twenty Thirteen theme.
- I am using three plugins: NextCellent Gallery, which is not to be confused with NextGen Gallery, Simple Share Buttons Adder, and Content View.
- NextCellent Gallery’s lightbox is a Shutter Reloaded lightbox, but the Shutter Reloaded lightbox was part of the NextCellent Gallery plugin (i.e. I did not download them as separate plugins).
- With the exception of inserting one line of code into the Header.php to import a Google font, the entire website was developed through Wordpress’s GUI and 956 lines of CSS in the “Additional CSS” section of the Wordpress Dashboard.

 

I suspect I may need to use a different lightbox, but I do not know if this is possible (or too tricky to manage) while still using NextCellent Gallery. I otherwise like NextCellent Gallery and how fast the lightbox is. I originally went with NextCellent Gallery because a lot of people were shitting on NextGen Gallery after a new version was released, and NextCellent is slowly evolving and resembles an older version of NextGen Gallery. I also wanted something free, and many “free” plugins, like NextGen Gallery, are more like demos of the paid product you actually want. I’m not super keen on making a plugin switch, but it’s mostly because I already invested SO MUCH time into customizing the gallery and lightbox features. I hate the idea of doing it again only to find a different drawback. That being said, I recognize that using different plugin may be the best solution. Even though I settled on NextCellent because I wanted something free, I would also consider buying a plugin if it’s the exact product I want and doesn’t require a subscription.

 

So, any recommendations on moving forward? Modify the plugins I’m using? Get a new plugin? Hire a developer? I am very much out of my league here. When I said I had zero experience, I really meant zero. I basically developed the entire website through trial and error, inspecting and modifying elements. It’s been a struggle. Thank you if you made it this far.
