[HELP] Subscription based service plugin

Thu, 05/30/2019 - 09:39

Hi all,

I'm trying to find a plugin that offers a subscription model for a service. I have a client who does commercial cleaning and they'd like to offer an initial 2 week free trial of cleaning and then charge the subscription.

They've linked me to this site which is somewhat similar to how they want it (step by step):

I understand it's quite complicated, has anyone come across anything that can do this sort of thing?

Most of what I can find is membership based which is not what I'm after!

[REQUEST] Free Plugin for a Software Wizard-type Questionnaire

Wed, 05/29/2019 - 15:30

Hello Everyone,

I have a WordPress site and want to provide a Wizard-like series of questions to users to ensure they download the proper software. The minimum requirements are that the plugin can support one question per page with at least two options that can be chosen. On each page, there has to be an area for a more in-depth description associated with the question. And the questions presented are conditional based on what the previous answers were. Does anyone know of a quality plugin that would meet those requirements (free being strongly preferable but not strictly necessary)?

Thank you for any suggestions you can provide!

Looking for a live chat solution for my site. I'm low traffic and would almost never need to use it, but I want an option and don't know where to begin. [FREE]

Tue, 05/28/2019 - 16:33

Hey there. Do you guys know a good free live chat plugin? I have been looking around but I am a bit overwhelmed at the options. :( My site is low traffic, but I want to try out live chat to see if it makes a difference when clients go to the site. Ideally, I'd like a chat window to automatically popup when they log on. ANY help would be great appreciated! Thanks in advance! :)

[REQUEST] What is the "best" optimizer for WordPress Images?

Mon, 05/27/2019 - 16:29


I know "best" is subjective, but I'm wanting to know what everyone uses to automatically optimize their images and what one is the "best".

I'd prefer lossless, but lossy is fine too as long as it doesn't lose too much quality.

Commonly Used Ones:

  • Imagify
  • WP Smush (WPMU DEV)
  • ShortPixel
  • Optimole
  • Optimus (KeyCDN)
  • EWWW Image Optimizer
  • EWWW Image Optimizer Cloud
  • LiteSpeed Cache (Requires LightSpeed server for automatic optimization of images)
  • reSmush It
  • Just Image Optimizer (Uses Google Page Speed Insights)
  • TinyPNG Compress Images

Some others (There are more available!):

  • Robin Image Optimizer
  • Sirv Image Optimizer
  • JetPack Image Optimizer
  • 10Web Image Optimizer
  • WP Compress Image Optimizer
  • SiteGround Image Optimizer

Anyone thoughts, suggestions and advice welcome :)

[HELP] Login Customizer Plug In, Custom CSS won't allow me to align form

Sat, 05/25/2019 - 21:47

Hello everyone, I am using the Login Customizer plugin, found here: The plug in works great, except, whenever, I inject code into the Custom CSS section, I cannot seem to achieve my goal: aligning the log-in form to the right. It is placed in the center by default. Here is the template CSS:

#login form#loginform .input, #login form#registerform .input, #login form#lostpasswordform .input { border-bottom: 1px solid #d2d2d2;} .bar {position: relative; display: block; width: 100%;} .bar:before, .bar:after {content: ""; height: 2px; width: 0; bottom: 15px; position: absolute; background: #e91e63; transition: all 0.2s ease;} .bar:before { left: 50%; } .bar:after { right: 50%; } input:focus ~ .bar:before, input:focus ~ .bar:after { width: 50%; }

Could someone please explain to me where I should insert the code to align the form to the right. No matter where I inserted the following code, nothing changed. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

.form-all { float: left;} submitted by /u/debatedood221

[HELP] Looking for a plugin that will replace keywords to links

Sat, 05/25/2019 - 12:09

I'm looking for a plugin that will detect certain keywords that I provide in the post and then replace it with my link to external sites, so that I don't have to do this every time I write

Currently, I'm using Linkify Text, it works. But it will replace keywords even inside h2, h3, buttons etc. Only keywords inside a paragraph should be changed

Does anyone know a plugin that can do the job?

[HELP] Video Website and Rating Plugins?

Thu, 05/23/2019 - 17:41

I am working on a website to show videos only to logged-in users. I am wanting the ability to post videos (from Vimeo), and allow users to rate them. Once rated, a few widgets to show Highly rated, highest viewed, and featured videos would be amazing.

Is there a plugin that includes ratings with the videos (I've checked around and couldn't seem to find one). If not, anyone have suggestions on plugins I could combine to get the desired results?


I'm also looking for a decent way to track which logged-in users view which videos/pages if possible, but that's a different thing.

[PREMIUM] Multiple Tag Search

Thu, 05/23/2019 - 14:46

What plugin do I use to get this multiple search filter?

Basically, I want my clients to be able to select multiple tags and view search results, and also edit their selection and view updated results. Must be a simple and easy experience.

I'm using search and filter plugin right now and it's great but the process of ticking checkboxes in one column that goes so far down the page is too tiresome for the user.
A great example is Elementor's gallery which you can view here - if this lets the user choose multiple tags it would be perfect.

Is this plugin proposal possible? [DISCUSSION] [HELP]

Thu, 05/23/2019 - 11:11

My boss wants to create a client portal- no sweat, there are hundreds of plugins that could do that- but he doesn't want it based on WordPress. I'm absolutely horrible at php (seriously, I was introduced to it two days ago) and the only experience I have is with Java (and even then it's only low level stuff). I've probably watched around 6 hours worth of PHP and Wordpress videos on and based on my research, I think our company's wordpress website runs on PHPMyAdmin, which has MySQL on it, which I could maybe create a database for all of the custom users. Is this possible? Even if it is, how long would I probably have to work on it? (I already know I'm doing stuff way above my pay-grade, but how far above like my actual brain capacity?)

So, I have a lot (1000+) of articles as HTML files downloaded from one site, and want to upload them to another one. How can I do that?

Also, the HTML files contain all page code from the 1st site, which I don't want. How to upload only the articles?

[HELP] Publish to Apple News plugin

Sat, 05/18/2019 - 16:41

Hey guys
Im using the Publish to Apple News plugin, and I'm trying to add an extra line of text to all posts before sending it off to apple news
I found the hook apply_filters( 'apple_news_generate_json', $json, $this->content_id() )
Which ,"allows you to change any aspect of the final JSON right before it is sent to Apple News. Some sites use this to replace the content with their own custom templates. $json actually contains a PHP array representation of the JSON right before it's encoded for easy editing. $this->content_id() contains the post ID."
Not sure where to go from their
can someone help?

[FREE] Top 3 Free plugins for Wordpress SEO

Fri, 05/17/2019 - 15:27

I also posted this over at /r/Wordpress, but I think it belongs here too.

Any web developer and SEO professional will tell you that getting a new website to start getting traffic and good ranking on Google is really the hardest hurdle to overcome. Especially because it never ends, you need to constantly improve your content and make sure you're using the right on-site (and off-site) techniques to show up in search results and stay fresh on your audience's mind.

Thankfully Wordpress has some pretty neat tools to make your on-site SEO (Search Engine Optimization) stand out from the sea of Wordpress sites.

  1. Yoast SEO: Yeah, this one is pretty obvious. Their motto literally is "SEO for everyone". It's great because it analyzes each page on your website and sees if each one is optimized to its full potential. If there is room for improvement, Yoast even lists out what you could do and has great tips on their blog for you to become an SEO expert.
  2. MPG: Multiple Pages Generator: This is a newer plugin that is all about creating pages in bulk without clogging your website's speed. This is perfect for creating landing pages for your website that are search-specific. For example, if you sell a product to multiple cities, it's better for your SEO to have a page dedicated to each city. So just list the locations on a CSV and set a template page with shortcodes and MPG generates the pages for Google to index. Each one with its own picture, map, video, keyword and however else you want to customize.
  3. Smush: A lot of times what's making your website unsavory for Google is just its speed and how heavy it is, this is usually because of unnecessarily large images. This is where Smush comes in. It automatically compresses images, resizes and strips them of unnecessary data without affecting the images' quality. You can optimize up to 50 images in bulk.

This is a really short list, but it's really helpful for anyone who is serious about creating a great and optimized Wordpress website. Let me know your thoughts/questions and if you want more SEO tips for your Wordpress site.
