I am trying to use an SSL certificate on a Wordpress Multi-site.

I just installed and SSL certificate for my primary domain, https://simplifychurch.com.  I had assumed (albeit probably incorrectly) that the certificate would cover the network of sites since they all are on the same host, etc.  

I checked my site at http://learn.simplifychurch.com and it gives the not secure error warning.

I'm a bit over my head now in testing what needs to go where, I used a WP Plugin to work on forcing the SSL to the site, and have set it up on each site however the Learn.simplifychurch.com domain is still not working correctly.

Just need some guidance and advice on how to adjust.  I guess I could get a wildcard cert if necessary as there is no way on my host to install an individual certificate to each network site.
I need to force a reindex of my woo commerce 3.5 site search.  I am using the standard site search (since I can find no plugin, for search.)  I have gone to Woo Commerce settings and don't see a tab for index like some of the internet results show.

Please tell me how to reindex or start over with my search index.

I migrated my sisters website yesterday and for some reason the homepage is showing as hostpapa and not the actual homepage of the website which I have moved to hostgator


However, I can login to the admin here - http://www.lindalouisehill.co.uk/wp-login.php

And I can go to all other individual pages such as this one - http://www.lindalouisehill.co.uk/about-linda

I am concerned this page has been lost completely as i've gone back into file manager and the hostpapa one is in every copy and backup I have but something does not make sense as I go to an old backup from March and its there too but the homepage has not been like that since March.

Hi. I’m looking for a web script or wordpress plugin that allows you to edit images in the same way that the Linkedin profile photo editor does. All suggestions appreciated?

Seeking a CSS revision to TwentyTwelve Child Theme, to reduce vertical white space:
1.  Between bottom of Tagline and top of Header Image
2.  Between bottom of Header Image and top of Menu Bar
3.  Between bottom of Menu Bar and top of text body

Searched and tried multiple solutions w/ no success.

Need to choose WordPress plug-in for an audio and video podcast

But I am still not so knowledgeable about distribution of the podcast

Here is a list of Theme Forest themes I may choose from.



If I use a podcast theme on my WordPress site, what is missing from my hosting requirements? Are the videos stored on YouTube? And the MP3's stored on my website?

Does the theme contain the interface to iTunes and other podcast distribution outlets?

I am pretty new at this and do not yet have a feeling for what is what.

Okay, I'm creating a web app in WordPress and I'm trying to allow users to draft a post from the front end. The posts are custom post types called "lessons". I have a dashboard that lists all the lessons the user has created and I have a deactivate checkbox and link under each lesson. I got the drafting functionality to work, however, when I draft only ONE lesson, they all get drafted.

Here's my code:

In the Template:

<span class="deactivate-link"><form action="" method="POST" >
			<input type="checkbox" value="deactivate" name="draft"> <label for="deactivate">Make inactive</label>
			<input type="submit" value="Deactivate">
	<?php toDraft($post->ID); ?>

Open in new window

In the functions.php:

//function to update post status to draft
function toDraft($pid){

$toDraft = $_POST['draft'];
   if($toDraft == 'deactivate'){
      wp_update_post(array('ID' => $pid, 'post_status'   =>  'draft'));

I'm using Wordpress with Form 7 I want to create a drop-down menu that when selected will populate multiple fields (non editable) this fields must be visible by the user. 2 of the fields will have links which should be clickable and open in separate tabs. For example:  User Selects their favorite color, I need their selection to display (Blue) then I need another field that will be populated with (Light Blue) Another with (red) and another with a link (www.link.com)
Get Google maps to show our new location in Wordpress:
We have recently moved our office. I have sent the change to Google maps and they have accepted the change. When I enter our business name with the new address, it shows our business name (Jane Barnwell, MD) at the new location: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Jane+Barnwell,+MD/@35.2208126,-111.6242339,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x872d89798e4cf657:0x9aa08eb3ead6fee2!8m2!3d35.2208126!4d-111.6220452

However when I enter our business name with the new location in Wordpress in our website, the map does not show our business name at the new location. You can see that map at the bottom of the home page at www.barnwellmd.com.

Any ideas how I can get google maps to display our business name at our new location?
Have an XML file which is an export of my wife's WordPress blog. I need to export the blog content.  I am attaching the XML file, itself. I have never used XPATH and am willing to learn, but unsure how to proceed. Each blog entry is under <content:encoded>. I am not sure how to simply extract the content into a txt/docx format. Appreciate the help!
Thank you!
I have a small Wordpress web site currently running on a Linux VM using nginx.
I'd like to dump my HP Microserver that's running the Linux VM and replace it with a Synology NAS.
Is there a way to run a Wordpress site on a Synology NAS?
I am going to start a blog called "Show Me the Money Bags."  I want to start a case study right here in this forum where I can get honest opinions and thoughts on my journey.  I will tell you that I have acquired my domain name www.showmethemoneybags.com. I figured after talking to several experts that it is highly possible that everywhere you turn that there are scams when dealing with issues, blogs, forums, and online business.

So, I started with my domain name from Namecheap for $8.99.  

I decided to hire a freelance copywriter to assist in writing my articles from Fiverr.  My first 1000 words will cost me $10. I have given myself until Monday to provide her with an in-depth synopsis of the journey of the blog ahead with more articles. I have not paid her yet for the first article.

The article will have the first article will have the premises of the blog "Show me the money bags."

I plan to stick to what I call "money bags" to make money online for real.  (I remember an Expert telling me that it is simple to make money online).

I want to discuss the reality of making money online (hopefully build up an audience from real-world experience and expert advice).

I plan to set up my domain in Wordpress (I would appreciate any thoughts on CMS for the long run).

My hosting is through Hostgator baby plan.

So, I want to get some advice from bloggers within this forum as to what I should do with this idea to progress from here.
I do not plan to go live …
I have several sites on Bluehost, all running Wordpress with Divi theme. They are all painfully slow. Bluehost says to go to GTMetrix and fix all the issues. I've tried, using plugins on some sites and using code on others. (EG: used the attached code to defer parsing of javascript on techgardens.com/optical-engineering. GTMetrix still says to defer parsing of javascript. On techgardens.com I have these plugins running: Leverage Browser Caching, Remove Query Strings From Static Resources, WP Super Minify, Far Future Expiration Plugin, but GTMetrix still gives us a bad score and tells me to fix those issues and the site is VERY slow.) The other site on the server is truenasreseller.com.

I have a web developer who says he can fix the issues permanently, but we'd probably need to keep him around. I think this is the way to go, but i'm looking for other solutions to provide as options to the CEO.

Are there web hosts who are wordpress-specific, who provide support on cleaning up wordpress specific problems like the ones listed above?

Any other potential solutions you can see? Thanks, all.
WordPress Plugin, Enque scripts.

I have a plugin that enques its scripts.  I need to modify them and use my own.  How do I do this?
This is the line that enques the scripts in the plugin:

wp_register_script( 'opc-script', $this->plugin_url() . '/scripts/ignitewoo-opc.js', array( 'jquery' ), WC_VERSION, true );
wp_enqueue_script( 'opc-script' );

So how do I de-enque and use mine?

I try to list posts from a custom taxonomy, but return an error by api rest v2.

I try to list categories inside, hierarchy. But I just managed to list it in a simple way.
                        $taxonomy = 'portfolio_category';
                        // Get the term IDs assigned to post.
                        $post_terms = wp_get_object_terms( $post->ID, $taxonomy, array( 'fields' => 'ids' ) );

                        // Separator between links.
                        $separator = '<br>';

                        if ( ! empty( $post_terms ) && ! is_wp_error( $post_terms ) ) {

                            $term_ids = implode( ',' , $post_terms );

                            $terms = wp_list_categories( array(
                                'title_li' => '',
                                'style'    => 'none',
                                'echo'     => false,
                                'hierarchical' => true,
                                'taxonomy' => $taxonomy,
                                'include'  => $term_ids
                            ) );

                            $terms = rtrim( trim( str_replace( '<br />',  $separator, $terms ) ), $separator );

                            // Display post categories.
                            echo  $terms;

I'm looking for a sql query to pull any woocommerce products or wordpress pages edited by a certain Wordpress user.  Ideally I'd get the post and the post revision along with the user that I'm targeting.

I did some Google'ing but couldn't find what I was looking for.  Any ideas?

I've exported an excel spreadsheet to html and uploaded the file to my wordpress site however when I open the url the spreadsheet is not centered on the page. it is set to the far left. How do I center the pages. I'd also like to have the links on the bottom to the other sheets be at the top instead of the bottom but that's not a deal breaker.
Had a html .index file that I erased to blank and uploaded to my Wordpress domain, jsccorps.com. Idea was to use this as my Wordpress startup front page when someone brings up the site. However, the Theme, colors, etc, don’t show up on jsccorps.com. If I create a home page, then the Theme, etc. appears on jsccorps.com/home Why is jsccorps.com blank and I can’t add theme, logo, etc from Wordpress dashboard?
I want to query a database and include the output in a table on a Wordpress page. I have the PHP code that queries the database, and it works correctly, but I can't figure out how to output that onto my Wordpress page.

I've looked into several widgets, like InsertPHP, but I can't figure out exactly how they work.
We have a few odd formed urls that we're trying to redirect. They all look like this but with different 5 letters after the .html, this is how I tried making the redirects work:

redirect 301 /woodinville-carpet-cleaning.html/UPfMZ/ https://andersoncarpetcleaninginc.com/professional-home-carpet-cleaning-services-woodinville/

They won't redirect though. All the normal urls in the htaccess redirect just fine, so I know there isn't an issue in the file itself. Anyone have a solution to make them redirect as we expect?

Thanks for any help.
