Seriously... I have a site that I'd like to make a few changes to, however I don't want to mess it up (FUBAR)...
Is this what "clones" are for? What's the quickest pain free way to work on the site and make live with all my changes?  It's a hosted site via cPanel.

Hi Experts,

I am trying to write a very simple plugin for my client, and this is my first plugin, but cannot figure out how to submit from within /wp-admin?

As a test , I put together the following, but when I submit I get 404 Error. I see this is because the submit action is looking for .../wp-admin/admin-submit.php where admin-submit.php is in my plugins folder, but if I submit directly to it, I know I will get out of the wp-admin structure.  Do I need to doeverythign in iFrame or how do I handle this properly?

Plugin Name: Aces Test
Plugin URI:
Description: This is my <b>Plugin</b> description.
Version: 1.0.0
Author: Aleksandar Poposki
Author URI:

function wp_add_menu(){
//    add_menu_page('ACES Page Title', 'ACES Options', 'manage_options', 'aces_plugin', '', 'dash-email-alt');
    $admin_page = 'admin-form';
        'Custom Menu Title',
        'custom menu',
        $admin_page, 'aces_admin',

function aces_admin(){

    require_once 'admin-form.php';


function aces_activate(){
    //Create WP-Admin Page
    //echo 'ok';

// Activate

Wordpress whenever I try to approve multiple comments it gives me err connection reset. Started happening after wordpress upgrade.
I have my plugin called TwitchPress and it has an extension called TwitchPress Login Extension. It's all open-source and it appears to work. We can login into WordPress using Twitch. Then when we make the WP installation more complex by adding more plugins and we see issues that have now taking around 30 hours to figure out without any real progress.

Experienced Issue

Add WPML (language plugin) and Shield (security plugin) and we see something I find strange happening. These plugins behave as if they don't recognize the users authenticated session even though the plugin uses WP core functions to authenticate the visitor. WPML asks the user to login when switching language but does not do so if we login using the WP login form. The Shield plugin is also installed and that has security to prevent a hacker continuing to navigate through the admin side if they do manage to get into the admin in the first place. Shield could be preventing easy access to the admin when switching language domains because it doesn't see the login as legit. The switch between languages becomes an opportunity to secure the blog.


One or both of these plugins do not recognize my authentication as genuine but how could that be and why would WP core itself allow access to the admin if something isn't quite right? I assume these plugins work well and the problem is in the steps I take to authenticate a visitor via the Twitch API.

Can anyone suggest …
I am developing a website using Divi Theme. The Background image nor the Background color will display
I'm trying to find a Wordpress theme that will be good for the following
- 2-3 simple pages, e.g. about us and contact
- an easy photo gallery similar to Facebook. Where I can have dates, perhaps 5-10 photos on each date. I don't use Facebook but want my own site to have ability to drop photos in on the fly and leave a simple 1 line description about it.

I have the domain and will enable the Wordpress app with the hosting company.
We are leaving our host provider in not so good a relationship  . We have the zip files from the site but not the database, ( It is a wordpress site )  Is there a way to host it in such a way that we are never in a position to have our website be down ? It would be acceptable to just have the home page without working links just so the home page is in place .
Our Godaddy web development team said that it will take 3 weeks but we could lose the host a week early .

Myself and a friend are making a word press site

We have an image that I would like to use on the first page but it tiles everywhere

Plan a. is to make it centred as one pic to a given size.

Plan b. is to make it a background pic as plan a is too difficult ...

Can someone pls tell me how to do this ?

I have a slider and some text on my website.  There is a background image behind the slider and text.  I am having trouble making the elements scale correctly in mobile layouts.  I was wondering what is the best way to achieve this without having to make tons on media queries for each size?

Thanks!  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have built a small wordpress widget that floats in the bottom right hand corner of my client's website(s), so that their users can click it to make a payment to them... which simply redirects the user to my payment platform / website where my customer has an account.

FLOW - widget sits on and when they click it, the customer is brought to (their payment profile on splink)

I need to be able to track how many users land on from a widget that sits on another site.

I was thinking of using something like and then i can view that in Google Analytics?

01 - would this approach be the best way to do this?

02 - any other advice on approaches would be greatly appreciated

Thank you in advance for your help.

I run a site at that displays the research I have done for the past 20+ years in collecting official color information for all sports teams throughout history. Pro and College.

This information is stored in a series of relational DBs...I store all the information I can for specific color sets (RGB, CMYK, Lab, Formula Ink mixes, etc.), and use it to cross-reference to databases for collegiate and pro franchises.

For a LONG time, the actual color information I've displayed has been in the form of running a report (admittedly, I'm still using MS Access. I know, I know.) and using SnagIt to grab an image to use as the display. Here's an example:

Arizona Diamondbacks (MLB/NL): 1998-2006
This example only displays Hex/HTML and RGB information; most teams and leagues don't want their specific Pantone information displayed on the site due to potential copyright issues, so I restrict what is displayed.

Obviously, this is a huge time-waster; I have wanted to replace this method for years.

Currently, my site uses WordPress; what I would like to do is to create a WP ShortCode that will allow me to display this information using generated swatch images utilizing CSS and PHP coding. However, I'm relatively new at this and am not exactly sure how to go about doing it.

I found a college branding site that uses CSS to create swatch boxes very similar to what I want to do:

UMass Amherst Brand Guide

I found the references to the 'pantone-box' elements within the CSS:

I would like to simply replace this with the built-in (default) WordPress search feature. The theme I am working with is custom and was created by someone else. Is there some kind of default PHP code I can replace the above script with, to use the default WordPress search instead? The theme doesn't have a template file for search, other than what is shown above.
I already export data and files from database and file manager and import it into new one,but not able to see the condition and working as in previous site in wordpess.
