why is my woocommerce plugin not sending notification emails to my client's emails address?

I have more than one email and its sending to them on some emails...checked customers emails...they're not getting them either and no spam or junk folder mails either.

I've read about smtp settings on other plugins but I'm not sure which ones to reset or what to adjust.

In WordPress, before updating to version 4.9, I wanted to run UpdraftPlus backup, but received the error below; any ideas what needs to be done? TIA.

Dropbox chunked upload exception (Dropbox_BadRequestException): Error in call to API function "files/upload_session/start": Must provide HTTP header "Authorization" or URL parameter "authorization". (line: 217, file: C:\home\insightandenergy.com\wwwroot\wp\wp-content\plugins\updraftplus\includes\Dropbox2\OAuth\Consumer\Curl.php)
I have a responsive handburger menu on this site: http://taliance.com
Its a wordpress site running Genesis Theme Framework with a child theme.

You need to scroll down 150px to see the menu, and set your dev console to look at it as a mobile.

It nearly works how we want it, but it doesn't slide back to the left when an item is clicked.
Normally this needn't be a problem. It was designed for linking to other pages. But this menu's links go to ids on the same page, using the PageScroll2id plugin. So, as you'll see, it remains in place.

Can you tell from the dev console what I need to do, either with js/jquery or with css to make it slide away when an item is clicked?

Thank you

I need to show Child category Slider with category in wordpress Is there any plugin to show Sub category using parent id.
I have created a wordpress site on a subdomain 'wpsite.domaina.com and I have redirected www.wpsite.com to 'wpsite.domaina.com.

The redirect works OK but once the user is redirected, the URL on the page changes to wpsite.domaina.com

How can I mask the actual URL with the original URL so the user is not aware of the subdomain?

I have a VPS where I have hosted 8 domains. Out of these 8 there are one domain with wordpress based website which alone most of the time occupies 85% of the CPU. This is a small 2 page website with no plugin installed, having latest version Wordpress and licensed "Enfold" wordpress theme.

How can I fix this CPU overloading problem by WordPress site ?
I am using Woo-Commerce with Wordpress.  I am trying to write a query that pulls specific Meta_Key Values but I'm not 100% on how to write it.

I need the order ID to locate all of the meta data, that is no problem, then I need to query those fields with that ID and pull specific values from meta_keys.  The query below is just a start but will get me going so I can ask additional questions.
Right now I have four meta_key that I need to pull the value from;
1.First Name (meta_key value / First Name)
2. Middle Name (meta_key value / Middle Name)
3. Last Name (meta_key value / Last Name)
4. Company Name (meta_key value / Company Name)

 global $wpdb;
        $order_id = $_POST['order_number'];
         $order = $wpdb->get_results ( "SELECT order_item_id, order_item_name FROM woocommerce_order_items WHERE order_id = '$order_id'");

         foreach ($order as $page) {
            echo $page->order_item_id.'<br/>'.$page->order_item_name;
            $meta_id = $page->order_item_id;
            $entity = $page->order_item_name;

$sql = $wpdb->get_results ( "SELECT
    CASE WHEN $entity = 'ABC' 
    THEN CONCAT(meta_key ='First Name', IF (CHAR_LENGTH(meta_key = 'Middle Name') > 0, CONCAT(meta_key = 'Middle Name')), meta_key ='Last Name')
    WHEN $entity = DEF' 
    THEN CONCAT(meta_key ='First Name', IF (CHAR_LENGTH(meta_key = 'Middle Name') > 0, CONCAT(meta_key = 'Middle Name')), meta_key ='Last Name')
ELSE meta_key

Hi All,

We have a website we manage for a client.

It has been built in wordpress.

We are the main email address on the wordpress site, which means we should receive all notices about updates etc.

I have gone into the the cpanel delivery report (via web host), and it says that all emails to our email address have been failing :       "Unrouteable address."

The email address is correct.

Why are we getting the emails?

The client emails are hosted with office365 and cpanel is setup as remote exchange.

any help would be great.

I have developed my website through wordpress, but I have also created a HTML backend/ admin platform...how do I intergrate the backend to my website?
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.

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?

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.
