Hi Experts,

I am an experienced programmer in PHP, HTML, CSS, JS, but new to WP.

I have downloaded a theme and created a child theme to match my design.

I have also downloaded the CSSIgniter for music, and have loaded a playlist.

My question is that, I am not sure how to embed CSSIgniter in my page? Essentially I would like to have code such as

<div id=”cssigniter”>  //cssIgniter code </div>.  

Open in new window


Under WP I see [ai_playlist id="76"], but I am not sure how to incorporate?

There is what I want to get : https://www.cssigniter.com/preview/audioigniter 

Thank you

How do I center the Learn More button on the three widgets on the home page below the animation?  I tried display:block but that didn't work.

Hi Experts,

I'm building a website for a music studio, which is not a one-pager, within WP.

When the visitor clicks on the music player, my client wants to have a play list playing while the visitor goes to other pages. Is there a good plug-in for that? I assume that I need a pop-up window?

Thanks.

Note: I'm a relative newbie to Wordpress :)  That said:

I'd like to have a forum on my Wordpress Website, preferably as a plugin.

Do you have experience with something like this?

Features I'm looking for in the forum software...

  • Integrates seamlessly with Wordpress and the Fortuna theme
  • User to be able to register, receive an email to confirm their email address before being accepted as a forum member
  • Looks and works something similar like the Bleeping Computer, Malwarebytes or the Windows Secrets Forums
  • Ability to Pin posts
  • An ability to assign different user levels so as to be able to assign moderators etc.
  • Captcha Support to stop Robot Scripts making user fake accounts
  • Easy Administration
  • Easy Wizard Driven Setup

Is something like that available as a Plugin or would I be better off with a different solution?

Your opinions and suggestions gratefully accepted.

Finally, though I'd prefer free, I'm not averse to paying a reasonable amount for a shareware / commercial solution if needed to satisfy all my requirements.

Looking forward to your suggestions.

Thanks..

This is showing up on my Contact page on my published website.  It's code from the backend:  [gravityform id="1" name="Contact Form"]  Is there a special character i need to put in front of gravityform to hid this on my published site?

http://www.dixiespecialty.com/contact/ -- that's where the code is showing up.  I'm not an expert in Wordpress, so any guidance would be beneficial.

Thanks,

Hi Experts,

I am building my second WP site, and I am wondering why the Header Image (under Appearance >Header) is appearing in the middle?

I thought the middle is for the Featured Image?

How can I make the header image appear in the top left corner above the site name?  As well, how can I lower the site navigation to be just above the blue line?

If I need to adjust the code, not an issue, but how can I create the child theme and where do I adjust?

I am pretty knowledgeable in PHP, HTML, CSS, etc, I just need a reminder what's where in WP. I am using the Flex-Lite theme.

Hi

MY EDUCON blog is looking better, but I'd prefer it if the blog wasn't on the Home page, but on one of the tabs, and the home page was something I could design.
Is that just bad luck. - Not how blogs are done?

Thanks

I Need to find all the Wordpress Post that do not have a specific meta data value

select p.`ID`,m.meta_key,m.meta_value 
from wp_posts p, wp_postmeta m 
where p.post_status ='publish' and 
p.`ID`= m,post_id in (select post_id from wp_postmeta where  meta_key = 'DocID');

Open in new window


gives all the published posts with a DocID.
I need to filter it further on another m.meta_key that is missing from some posts

in sudo code it would look something like
select p.`ID`,m.meta_key,m.meta_value 
from wp_posts p, wp_postmeta m 
where p.post_status ='publish' and 
p.`ID`= m,post_id in (select post_id from wp_postmeta where  meta_key = 'DocID')
and not exists (m.meta_key = 'wanted')

Open in new window


Hoping this makes sense and someone  can show me a better way

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

I am trying to center text on the 3 widgets (3 circles with icons).  But, when I modify the css, it centers text on all pages!  Somehow I am not specifying the correct css to just modify the text in the widgets.  I tried modifying the below at it had no effect.

entry-content {
  text-align:center;}

Can anyone recommend a wordpress plugin that is for responsive tables that I can add links to the content.  I found a bunch but none seem to let me modify table cell data to add html for links.

 I am redesigning this site and need to find a way to organize this content like they have it with the first column having links to related pages.

Old site:

Note, I just clumped this info on this page.  IT is not in a table.

I am considering making training videos which at some point may have a price attached to them. So, I am not keen on hosting these on YouTube.

What options to do have for private hosting?

Is it logical to consider using my WordPress site, where I already have WuCommerce up and running?

What is involved in video posting? Are there various WordPress plugins I cans use that would make this easy?

This is hosted on AWS. How do you calculate the cost of this kind of service for bandwidth?

What if I have 10 views per day and the video is 30 minutes long?

What might that cost for the month?

Thanks

Client has audio files from town meetings that need to go on website.  Site is due to launch as early as next week.  Largest file size is 341MB.  Website is being built on Wordpress.

Can someone recommend a software or plugin we can use to reduce the file sizes.  They are not tech savvy so it would need to be something pretty easy to use since they do not want to have me do it for them on a weekly basis.  

They might be ok with a free trial and then pay afterwards if it serves their needs.

Hi
To my long suffering helpers in this - I finally have a theme that is close to what I hoped for (purchase from themeforest.com)
Some guys in Delhi are helping in Freelancer, but I don't want them to charge me for minor changes.
I have the EDUCON WP theme.
Is there a way for me to change the EDUCON title text to my site's name? It isn't a field in the options page?

Thanks

Hi

The Educon WP them seems to be exactly what I need,
but the documentation "how to" aspect of it is unimpressive. Does anyone know where a great manual for this theme might be?

Hi

Has anyone had any experience of exporting entire WordPress blog to html files

each post will have it's own folder named from 2 wp_terms entries
I need to grab the wp_terms associated with  the post and create metadata tags
all images and other post links will need to copied into its folder and the links made local

I suspect I'm going to need to write a custom script to do this

Any help with this greatly appreciated especially the  SQL to link the posts to the wp_terms

Thanx

Hi

I downloaded a purchased Educon Wordpress theme from theme forest, and whenever it downloads on Apple OS X, it unzips itself, even if I select, just download the "wordpress-installable file."

I need the installation file to insert as a new WP theme
How do I do this without unzipping?

Thanks

If you run run a WordPress, you understand the potential headaches you may face when updating your plugins and themes. Do you choose to update on the fly and risk taking down your site; or do you set up a staging, keep it in sync with your live site and use that to test updates?

I have a Wordpress post that when trying to save it just redirects to the 404 not found page.  

If I only have text in the post it works just fine, but when trying to show a code example of:
    $postTitle = str_replace(
        array("\xe2\x80\x98", "\xe2\x80\x99", "\xe2\x80\x9c", "\xe2\x80\x9d", "\xe2\x80\x93", "\xe2\x80\x94", "\xe2\x80\xa6"),
        array("'", "'", '"', '"', '-', '--', '...'),
        $postTitle);
    $postTitle = str_replace(
        array(chr(145), chr(146), chr(147), chr(148), chr(150), chr(151), chr(133)),
        array("'", "'", '"', '"', '-', '--', '...'),
        $postTitle);

In the post and saving it redirects to the 404 page, not sure why or what in this is causing the issue?

Hi
These are the Adsense approval bullet points. below
One seems to be that I must use the original URL that I used when I set up my account. I don't do that site anymore, but all my sites exist under a main URL for my account in godaddy.  How do I know which site that it wants, or correct it for it to work? what does it expect? Might it be relative to my umbrella URL for my godaddy account?

i) Copy the code exactly as it appears on your AdSense homepage.
ii) Place the code on the URL that you provided when you created your AdSense account.
iii) Make sure that you place the code on a page that has content and receives regular visitors.

I am attempting to make a plugin for WordPress for our company Intranet that will automatically scan a directory on our file server and return all files as hyperlinks. Our setup is windows based with IIS with the app pool set to use a domain account which has full access to the directories being accessed.

The code I have so far is as follows (found online - can I provide a link?):
function findfiles($atts = [], $content = null) {

    // normalize attribute keys, lowercase

    $atts = array_change_key_case((array)$atts, CASE_LOWER);

    // override default attributes with user attributes

    $atts = shortcode_atts(['department' => 'nothing', 'title' => 'nothing'], $atts);

    $directory = "//adama/shared/Intranet Documents/" . $atts['department'];
    $output = "<div class=gv-gcs-title>" . $atts['title'] . "</div>";
    $files = glob($directory . "*.*");

    foreach ($files as $file)
        {
        echo "<a target=_blank href='File:///$file'>".basename($file)."</a><br>";
        }
}

Open in new window


The issue I am having is that the statement
$files = glob($directory . "*.*");

Open in new window

returns 0. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong with it or if the issue is a permissions issue. If it were permissions I would expect an "access denied" message but I also know that is not a given.

Any help would be appreciated - Thanks, Joe

I am using an independent 3rd party to submit a map to google and I cannot get it to do it because of some robot.txt file

This relates to https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29047837/Custom-WordPress-Posts.html#a42238165

See this site: http://www.californiamedicarequote.com/

Note at the bottom of the main page there is form; in the theme used, that form is a post.

I want to get rid of that & be able to build a custom form in php that I can control how it is completed with Javascript, etc.

I have experience building custom pages for WP sites using the page.php starter. I have over 20 years experience in php & javascript, 3 or 4 in WordPress

So the question is, can I get my hands around this page (the php) & make it work as I like? Without rebuilding it from scratch.

WordPress is OK, but if you want to work "under the hood", it's like working with BOTH hands tied behind your back.

Thanks
