Valuebound: An overview of JSON API: A text-based data exchange format

News from Planet Drupal - Fri, 10/06/2017 - 09:35

People develop APIs for a variety of reasons, such as to create a tool to facilitate internal processes or an external product for customers or to build a third party tool. And for such purpose JSON comes to the rescue. The open standard format JSON follows shared conventions that help in increasing productivity, take advantage of generalized tooling, and focus on the web applications. 

If you are a developer you must have noticed that there is very little information on the web regarding JSON API when compared to its usability. In this blog post, I will share an overview of JSON API. Let's try and understand what is JSON API? Its advantages over…

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:

Top 10 page loads

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.

Valuebound: How to Handle Resource Intensive Tasks on Queue With Drupal Queue Worker/API

News from Planet Drupal - Fri, 10/06/2017 - 01:34

It's never too late to share something useful with mates. And in this blog, I am going to discuss Queue Worker/API and how to implement it in Drupal 8. After completing this blog cum tutorial you will find yourself at a moderate level of expertise in implementing Queue API.

A couple of months back, we had a situation in one of our project where we had to pull data from a centralized server and update that content to the site almost every day. In order to overcome this scenario, we started using cron, but faced a situation where we were missing few contents because of time out. After a little research and discussion, we (our team) decided to implement queue worker. And yes! It worked.

Let’s start with Queue API.

Need Website improved and copy writing. - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Thu, 10/05/2017 - 23:04
I have an established website that needs improved. The name is www.mycowear.com

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

Nextide Blog: Untapped areas for Business Improvements

News from Planet Drupal - Thu, 10/05/2017 - 22:24

Many organization still struggle with the strain of manual processes that touch critical areas of the business. And these manual processes could be costlier that you think. It’s not just profit that may be slipping away but employee moral, innovation, competitiveness and so much more.

By automating routine tasks you can increase workflow efficiency, which in turn can free up staff for higher value work, driving down costs and boosting revenue. And it may be easier to achieve productivity gains simpler, faster, and with less risk that you may assume.

Most companies with manual work processes have been refining them for years, yet they may still not be efficient because they are not automated. So the question to ask is, “can I automate my current processes?”.

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

Roman Agabekov: Sending emails from Drupal-powered sites. Setting up Exim under Debian

Sending emails from Drupal-powered sites. Setting up Exim under Debian

Once you have the web server set up and running, you need to make sure your Drupal site can send emails, like registration confirmation, password change etc.

For inbound email, you may want to use email services like that offered by Google Apps. They offer good spam protection and secure storage.

To send email from a Drupal-powered site, you can use an SMTP module and do it all through a third party mail service. Alternatively, you can set up your own SMTP server. This article describes setting up an Exim server that allows sending emails.
