Hi

In my WP blog, I'd like to give my users the opportunity to sell their associated art (their music)
Now that CD's don't exist, what are the opportunities here? mp3's, iPod?
How is music sold?
Do most people have the ability to acquire this music, in practicality?

Thanks

Hi

On my latest Freelancer project, the developers did the first part, the blog,
but we agreed that the second block, the video, would be another project.

Does that - in chat - agreement in the FL chat system count as a kind of legally binding agreement? - chat is logged

Thanks

How do I use a short code inside a link, I have a shortcode [ThisURL] and that returns the URL of the current page.

However if I have the code:

<a href="https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=[ThisURL]">Share on Facebook</a>

This then makes a link to:

https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=[show-jagged-ThisURL]

and not as I would like:

https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=my-website.com

Hi,
I would like to export the posts from an old wordpress site.  I only want the posts, and I want them to override the ones in my new site.  So what do I do in MySQL to export the old posts and then import them into the new table.
Is is as simple as selecting the table and then importing it into the new wordpress site.  I don't want to mess anything on the new site (except the posts of course@)
I hope someone can help me do this one please?
Thank you,

I'm using one of the free Wordpress themes 'SELA'.

On this page I want the lower iFrame (the multitrack player) to extend across the page. At the moment it is restricted, even though the page template is called 'Wide Page'. The width of the iFrame is set to 1200px.
http://www.ontaraj.com/test-wide-page/

These seems to be a restriction on the theme that prevents a full width iFrame. How can I get round that please?

Good Morning Experts,

I am having a Monday Morning weird thing happening, that i know is simple, but it's not coming simple for me at all.

We moved our main domain website to go daddy.  We previously hosted this wordpress site on our own internal IIS server.

Currently on our internal IIS server we have over 20 other websites that are something.ourdomain.com, each website has it's own A record in our Active Directory DNS and also on go daddy if it's external facing, not all of them are.

Here is the the issue.

Since Godaddy changed the DNS over we are getting SQL issue errors.  We also can get to our main website from any other source except internally.  I think these two are related.

In our internal DNS there was previously a A record (same as parent) record to the new website.  As I mentioned all the other sub websites have their own IP.

If you go to our main domain website, or try to ping it - nothing.  Nslookup does ping to the ip I gave it, but nothing.
If I do the same thing on our cloud server it pings and resolves and comes up in a browser.

What am I missing?

Also, will this move cause issues with all of our sub websites?  

Thank you,

Karen

Hi, I am using the most recent divi theme and I'm on wordpress 4.8. They have a tab module, I'm using it here: http://techgardens.com/partner-forcepoint.

From the second tab, Cloud Security, I want to be able to place a link to tab 4, Contact Us.

http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/trigger-anchor-link-to-tab-or-accordion-tab/

I looked there, and no luck. The thing is, it's not an id for that tab, it is class .et_pb_tab_4.
I saw some other explanations using php and jquery, but they are way over my head. Can anyone help?

I have been asked to update a site and its using a the Genesis theme and I cannot for the life of me find where they have added in the internal and external products.
There is NOWHERE, repeat NOWHERE I can see where this content could be hiding.
I have checked widgets, plugins for products, the theme code....its all written in a bizarre way
Can anyone help me solve this issue.

In addition I would like to make this header and navigation sticky, but of course the header.php file doesn't lend itself to presenting the banner, header and nav in one div so I just don't know how to develop that.
Can anyone help?

I've actually been able to get this working on the editor in pages and posts using the code below. But haven't been able to get it to work for the new editor added to text widgets. I read that wordpress is using jQuery now for those text widgets, but even trying this without a hook, just adding the script sitewide to test doesn't work:

<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery( document ).on( 'tinymce-editor-setup', function( event, editor ) {
    if ( editor.settings.toolbar1 && -1 === editor.settings.toolbar1.indexOf( 'blockquote' ) ) {
        editor.settings.toolbar1 += ',blockquote';
    }
});
</script>

Open in new window


I tried that just to see if the new method wordpress says you can use to add more buttons would even affect the editor in the text widget, but it doesn't even add the blockquote icon as expected. So of course I can't poke around to try to figure out what would target the link option.

This is the code that does work for the editor in pages and posts:
<?php
function newtablink()
{
 ?>
<script type="text/javascript">
    jQuery(function () {
       jQuery('input#wp-link-target').prop('checked',true);
    });
</script>  
<?php
}

add_action( 'before_wp_tiny_mce', 'newtablink' );
?>

Open in new window


Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions on how to go about this for the widget? Below is a screenshot for a visual of where and what I'm trying to work with.
(If you wonder why we want to do this: we have some sites that have more external links than internal. So we want the people adding or editing content or widgets to be able to just enter the url without having to open in extra settings box. We don't want to add a plugin that automatically tries to auto add the target="_blank" as pages render because we want to still have individual control. Some of the people editing have very limited skills, so we want to try to simplify anything we can for some of the sites.)

Can Wordpress Participants Database support a solution that enables a user (e.g., parent) to sign-up and:
1. Create a group (e.g., family) record;
2. Add and manage (view, edit, delete) individual records for and on behalf of  member in the group/family.

If not, what is the closest alternative?

Why Off-Site Backups Are The Only Way To Go
Why Off-Site Backups Are The Only Way To Go

You are probably backing up your data—but how and where? Ransomware is on the rise and there are variants that specifically target backups. Read on to discover why off-site is the way to go.

Do I just rename the current index file www.xyz.ie   ?

Is it straight forward ?
