Are there any plugins that can show a definition of the word (definition will be the text I enter for that word) without clicking on the word? just by moving the mouse on it.

[HELP] Support with Polylang / Illdy

Wed, 02/21/2018 - 21:07

I'm working on translating a website from Spanish to English and adding the functionality to switch between the languages. I am using the Polylang plug-in and the website already employs the Illdy theme.

Adding page and widget options was easy enough with Polylang but now I am stuck on the "Front Page Sections"... the only place I can see to edit them is in Appearance > Personalize > Front Page Sections. Here there is no option to include translated text.

Any ideas? For reference, the site is: http://cerveceriacaiquen.cl

[HELP] Looking for an instagram feed based on hashtags

Wed, 02/21/2018 - 19:57

I was wondering if anyone here had any recommendations. I don't mind paying for a premium version of a plugin, as I know this functionality is usually not free.

The more control over styling available, the better. It would be best if I could use filters or approvals to make sure that nothing crazy randomly appears. A system of specifically choosing which photos under a hashtag would also work. I'd like the option to mix hashtags as well.

This one seems promising: Instagram Feed WD

And another I was looking into: SmashBalloon Instagram Feed

Anyone have any experience with the above or any other suggestions? Thanks!

[HELP] Contracted web developer has written his own plugin that prevents new plugins from working

Wed, 02/21/2018 - 08:44

I am working in SEO (including technical SEO). In my new company, I found out that the web developer they have contracted (6 months ago) wrote a plugin that is seemingly preventing me from actually doing anything to the website apart from editing text content.

I have been given admin access but there is no way to edit the source code in any way. This company does not have any SEO in place prior to this and the developer did not set it up with SEO in mind. I can't be 100% sure, but my suspicion is that this web developer wants the company to keep contracting him for easy updates to the website that will prevent even future web developers from coming in unless they completely redesign the site.

My experience with front end development was a long time ago back in the early days of HTML, CSS and Javascript. I understand the web has developed quite a bit since then. Please advise.

[HELP] Plug-in that populates a map with addresses entered by users

Tue, 02/20/2018 - 02:00

I’m looking for a plugin that allows users to create a profile, add in an address and have that address then appear on a map. Is there any plugin or combination of plug-ins that you all know about that can do this? Or do I need to hire someone far smarter than I?

Thanks in advance

[HELP] I'm looking for a Wordpress Plugin (or Plugins) to make this

[HELP] ALL-in-one WP migration & Restoring Website

Tue, 02/20/2018 - 00:07

So long story short my website has been hacked (according to host gator) and I was hoping I could use ALL-in-one WP migration to upload the original version of my website (the clean one) and get rid of this malware or whatever. I don't have much experience with wordpress (basically none) so I was wondering if this is possible and if I can easily do it. Can I just upload the original website if I still have the file? If so, how can I do this without breaking anything?

Also, after doing this will google stop saying my website is dangerous? Will they remove my from their blacklist or whatever it's called?

[REQUEST] Ability to share read-only visibility with low-level users to unpublished posts for general review

Sun, 02/18/2018 - 15:26


  • I can created unpublished post in 'private' or 'pending review' status, of course.
  • Often, I want to share this with a half a dozen reviewers to give me general feedback.
  • I don't want to create users with the 'Editor' role--it's way too powerful.
  • Ideally, I'd create them with a new 'Reviewer' role, or repurpose a lower level role like 'Contributor'
  • I'm fine with creating these half dozen user accounts in my Wordpress installation; I just don't want this many people with the destructive powers that come with the 'Editor' role. It's too risky for accidental deletions or content edits.

What could I used to possibly give me this basic private sharing workflow, before publishing?

I don't want to password protect published posts. I don't want the titles to even show up as posts that exist. I do want people to have to log in to my wordpress site to see these special pre-release posts.

Wordpress survey plugin with personal accounts [HELP]

Sun, 02/18/2018 - 08:50

Main features: Admin creates surveys. Each user can create its own account (register on website) and then user will be able to answer the questions (surveys). All user's answers should be saved in database, so admin will be able to create reports, take statistics and such.

Does anyone know the best suitable solution with minimal customization?

[HELP] Platform for logged in users.

Sat, 02/17/2018 - 10:43

Hello everyone, I need to build a customer portal using wordpress and I would like to ask you some insights since it’s the first time that I’m using wp to do something like this.

Basically I need to build a platform where only logged in users can see the content, which consist in video tutorials and downloadable PDFs, so nothing too complicated. What plugin should I use to manage my users? I should provide my users username and password, since only selected customers should be able to access this platform.

Paying for a plugin it’s not a problem, although if I can find a free solution it would be awesome.

[HELP] Looking for a booking plugin ( free or commercial )

Thu, 02/15/2018 - 10:44

Hello guys ,

I'm looking for a booking plugin ( free or commercial ) whatever the best option is.

Plugin should show options for hourly use and if there's an option for credit card , paypal or other payment options the better.

I'm using the Avada wordpress theme as well so I hope it's also compatible with the plugin.

Thoughts ?

[REQUEST] SEO friendly tables?

Wed, 02/14/2018 - 21:14

So I've been working on an informative Wordpress website for about 2 months now. The last 2 weeks, I started focusing on SEO, which actually did improve the number of page views quite a lot. However, there are a lot of tables in my site which sadly aren't SEO friendly (I currently use TablePress). I just embed them into a page using a short code, which means Google probably won't see the text written in the tables, right?

I was wondering if anyone knows any SEO-friendly alternatives to the TablePress plugin? I'd prefer them to be free, but if there's any great paid plugins, I'm willing to look into that as well.

Thank you in advance!

video gallery plugins/service recommendations? [DISCUSSION]

Wed, 02/14/2018 - 17:28


Can anyone recommend a plugin or service that allows for the following functionality?:

1) pulls in YouTube videos into a gallery so that when a video in the gallery is clicked the page refreshes and offers a unique URL string to my site

2) pulls in that youtube video's text description which can be editable if needed?

3) adds share icons under that description that brings the user back to the unique URL string on my site

thank you!
