Hi, I've updated all my plugins. Then I ran P3 Profiler and got results saying this. What can I do to help speed up the plugins, or is there anything?

My latest blog is finished.
It is a musicians' upload blog, with a general theme/topic for discussion, and quarterly contests for a user-made topical video for five or some thousand dollars.

Is this a potential hornet's nest? lots of legal risk ? What are the hornets?


For my site I am allowing two user type creation.On the register or login page the url comes as "wp-login".I just want it to be "login" Want to not show the "wp-" part in the url.Please help.I bought a theme from some developer
Im looking for a plugin, either a slider, gallery or carousal, that will allow me to put 2 rows of 4 people stacked--so 8 total on the page.  If I mouse over any image it changes images to a specific image.  I would like this to have left/right options to switch to the next set of 8 people and then the next.
I have an ASP website on Windows IIS at www.mysite.com and I want to create a Wordpress blog at www.mysite.com/resources/

This means all pages of the blog start at www.mysite.com/resources/


I have 2 options:
1) Host the blog on Windows IIS
2) The other option is to have the Wordpress blog hosted on Linux server at another IP address and have all pages at www.mysite.com/resources/ point to the Linux server.

How would I do this?  Which option is better and why?
We use Infusionsoft order forms which have none of the facebook meta tags. We have been running facebook ads to these order forms. To do this, we used a meta redirect on a wordpress page. On that page was the same image (featured) that we use on the order forms as the hero image. Also on the wordpress page is the same text that we use on the order forms.

This had been working, but now, whenever I have the redirect on, it can't get a good facebook scrape. I get the following error: Object at URL 'http://xm8mastery.com/denver-co-xactimate-certification-training/' of type 'website' is invalid because a required property 'og:title' of type 'string' was not provided.

Here is an example order form: https://bq247.infusionsoft.com/app/orderForms/Denver-Certification-Training-Nov-6-8-2017
Here is an example page with the redirect turned on http://xm8mastery.com/denver-co-xactimate-certification-training/

The redirect method may no longer be viable. If it is, I'd love to hear some ideas on how to make it work. Or if there are better alternatives, I'd love to know.
I have a js video script to load a youtube video onto a div when you click the play button.

When I move the js code on to my wordpress site, I get the error 'to much recursive'

I debugged it down to this line:

How can I adjust the line to not cause the error ?

 var HeaderVideo = function(e) {
     0 !== e.element.length && this.init(e)

I need to migrate a Wordpress instance to a new server

Current Server is Wordpress 4.8.2 frontend and Ubuntu 12.04.5

I need to migrate it to a new server running Ubuntu 16.04.3 lts

So far I cannot find any info that specifically details this action.

Any ideas ?

When entering a POST in Wordpress, you can enter Categories a particular post is related too (see screen shot).

Where is the information stored?

Using WP_Query, I can retrieve the information in a PHP plugin, but I like to retrieve it via SQL directly from the MYSQL database. I looked for it in WP_POSTS and WP_POSTMETA and could not identify anything.

Thank you
I have data in the wp_postmeta table in a field named _product_addons.  I'm not sure what the format of the data is, but it is the below:

        s:4:"name";s:8:"Warranty";s:11:"description";s:35:"323.tv includes a one year warranty";s:4:"type";s:6:"select";s:8:"position";i:0;s:7:"options";a:3:{
                s:5:"label";s:60:"1 Year Limited Warranty Included";s:5:"price";s:1:"0";s:3:"min";s:0:"";s:3:"max";s:0:"";
                s:5:"label";s:30:"2 Year Limited Warranty";s:5:"price";s:3:"600";s:3:"min";s:0:"";s:3:"max";s:0:"";
                s:5:"label";s:30:"3 Year Limited Warranty";s:5:"price";s:3:"900";s:3:"min";s:0:"";s:3:"max";s:0:"";

Open in new window

I need to update the highlighted areas so that if the label is "1 Year Limited Warranty Included" it sets the circled area to s:1:"1" then if "2 Year Limited Warranty" it sets circled area to s:1:"2"

Circled Fields
I need to do an update on this field across 500 products, so manually isn't ideal. Can I write a database update or php script that will do the work for me?
Understanding Web Applications
Understanding Web Applications

Without even knowing it, most of us are using web applications on a daily basis. Gmail and Yahoo email, Twitter, Facebook, and eBay are used by most of us daily—and they are web applications. We often confuse these web applications tools for websites.  So, what is the difference?


I have a simple need of a gallery plug-in. After looking at some 20 of them I am really frustrated since All are jpg and do not give the options to have a simple gallery like on the old days where each picture had a normal URL.

Its quite simple what I try to do here. Please excuse the url, because this is real old. I did this in 2004

all these photos with descriptions are still in google, if you search for any names in these galleries they come up in google with description. This is what we try to do with this gallery., but instead there is even hard to find something that allows to have the cation under the picture.

Does anyone have any idea if such a plug-in exists?

I would be very happy if anyone has a tip for me because it seems so simple but everyone offers the fancy ways to display them. This is all fine but in the end I want these pictures in google as pages with the names of the people in the photo. I try to have clean URLs for each photo as well.

Anyone know if something like this?

Hi guys, i was wondering what is the best way to remove dates from all posts

You can see the date here

I'm skewing the border of a DIV so that I can create a parallelogram border around text.
I don't want the text skewed, but I can't figure out how to "un-skew" it.

This code is from a WordPress website - I'm using a plugin called Visual Composer.

The code works, the border is skewed as I want - but the text inside is also skewed.

Any help would be appreciated.

Here's my css:

.p_gram_button {
  -webkit-box-sizing: content-box;
  -moz-box-sizing: content-box;
  box-sizing: content-box;
  width: 100px;
  height: 30px;
  border-style: solid;
  border-color: #f36e21;
  color:#fffff !important;

  -o-text-overflow: clip;
  text-overflow: clip;
  -webkit-transform:    skewX(-20deg);
  transform:    skewX(-20deg);

.p_gram_button p{
font-style: normal !important; 

<!-- HTML -->
<div class="vc_wp_text wpb_content_element p_gram_button">
	<div class="widget widget_text">			
		<div class="textwidget">

My blog has a spot in it's theme to paste a GIF in it like a title GIF. I changed my blog's icon to the image I want, but it didn't change in the spot I want. How do I change the other title GIF? I don't think it is the logo.

Myth: WordPress is slow.

WordPress can support extreme speed, 1000-5000+ requests/second, sustained throughput, if...

1) The runtime LAMP Stack is tuned correctly, on an ongoing basis... meaning daily log analysis + retuning.

2) Code installed on site - Theme + Plugins - are all designed to scale.

Slowness occurs with hosting is used which isn't tuned for WordPress speed + themes/plugins are installed without vetting code for both PHP standards compliance + speed.

Almost every day I setup high speed WordPress sites for clients + speed problems only occur when one of the two guidelines above are violated.

So if anyone tells you WordPress is slow or you require some cruft technology to speed up WordPress, like NGINX or a CDN, you have a poser on your hands. Fire them + find someone who tools high speed WordPress sites + you'll be far better off than stacking cruft technology between your infrastructure + visitor browsers.

Shared hosting = the most common detriment to page load

I'd generally disagree with that. It depends on the provider, but USUALLY a host isn't so under-powered that it is actually processing PHP at a slow speed. Bear in mind that a normal WordPress install's PHP will usually be processed in under a second. Even if you had a really underpowered or overloaded host, that might double at most (unless they're doing something REALLY wrong).

Plugins are usually where things go wrong. People install plugins that each slow down the page by 50 milliseconds here, or 250 milliseconds there, and it adds up when you install a dozen of them. Suddenly, you have 12 plugins that are cumulatively adding 4-5 seconds to the PHP processing time, even on a dedicated host. Themes CAN have similar impacts, although they're less likely to, since their impact is more on the static asset side (e.g. adding 15 images that have to be downloaded - even if the PHP code takes 1 second to process, it may take 5-10 seconds to download all the theme contents).

If you doubt the difference, use XDebug to generate a cachegrind on a shared host and a dedicated host and compare the differences.
I'm currently working on a custom WordPress plugin (for personal use), and was wondering what options are available to me to be able to integrate visual charts into one of the admin panels of my plugin.  

If possible, I'd like to be able to do this without having to install and activate any other kind of WordPress plugin.  I ask because I know that there are all kinds of other JavaScript libraries and frameworks already built in to WordPress, and I'd prefer to leverage one or more of those if possible.

If necessary, I'd be OK with loading a specific JS plugin from a CDN -- using wp_register_script() --- if that's the only option.  I just don't know what's best recommended, or what's the easiest to implement, etc. Please advise.

hi experts,

I am in need of urgent help!

I have a wordpress install and a WHMCS install.

I had a developer make me a custom mobile menu on Wordpress but now when you click on the WHMCS links for example login, cart, support it goes to an error page not found.

This works fine on desktop but on mobile it gives that error, you can test here : www.crazyhost.co.uk/cloud-hosting now if you are on a mobile and try to click on support, Login or cart it will give you a link like this : www.crazyhost.co.uk/cloud-hosting/account/clientarea.php when it should be www.crazyhost.co.uk/account/clientarea.php

It shouldn't have this part(the Wordpress slug)  : /cloud-hosting

This problem only occurs on mobile devices and when you are on Any page other than the home page.

Any suggestions would be so highly appreciated.

Thank you.
Hi guys,
I have this strange problem with my website : Here
If you are not login everything works fine and the two buttons show as list or grid work great. If you login, you can try to login with facebook or google you can see that the two buttons don't work anymore...any suggestion?

Last but not least I set up everything inside woocommerce but if you go to page 2 or 3 or 4 you can see that instead of 20 products per page as per default, it shows 20, then 18, then 19, then 20 again...do you know why?

Thank you!!
I found this SQL statement https://www.kingrosales.com/blog/how-to-properly-delete-all-woocommerce-products/
that deletes ALL products in woocommerce, but I need to ONLY delete one category that is named "uncategorized products".

Has anyone accomplished this? I'm having a difficult time using a plugin or doing it directly in the wp-admin because it times out too quickly with the highest settings I can use in my php.ini. I need to delete over 90,000 products in that category at one time.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hi, Our partners host webinars quite often. I'm setting up an events page on our site that shows all the upcoming webinars (using Event calendar by Modern Tribe on Wordpress 4.8.2,)

But our marketing director wants to be able to track how many people come from our site to register. Is there any way to track that from our end?
Hi, Client wants our blog to look like this: https://www.coresecurity.com/blog

Ours is pretty standard: https://techgardens.com/resources/blog/ although I managed to change "read more" to a button with CSS.

I want to us this: https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/how-to-use-date-icons-to-spice-up-your-wordpress-theme-make-it-unique/  to get the date part.

I just need your help with what file to edit to to add this:  <div class="icon-date">
                 <h3><?php the_time('M'); ?></h3>
                 <h4><?php the_time('j'); ?></h4>
</div> and where to put it to get the date on the left of the post.

I'm on WP 4.8.2, Using Divi theme. Thanks.
Greetings mates,

I am facing an odd problem.

Typically, when I build a WordPress website, I build it on my local machine and then deploy to hosting server when ready to go LIVE.

Usually, no problems.

This time, though, I bought a theme called Healthflex.

Build it on my local machine and moved it to the hosting server for deployment.

So far, when I try to launch it from the browser, the page is blank.

Here is the link:


Any ideas why I am having a blank page?

Thanks in advance
