Pagespeed has indicated I need to change my images from png and jpeg to a next-gen format.  I found a place online that converted my png to jpeg 2000.  Now I need to know how to load both files rather than just the one for my images to be optimized.

I am using Wordpress and I don't see a means to include both files when I want to insert the image in a page.


Please tell me how to do this or tell me another means to get my images in next-gen formats.

WordPress site getting SPAMMED, not sure how to stop it.

My website, FortressHarvard.com

has a Download button, and when you fill your Name and Email, then click the button, you get an email with the URL to my book's Preface and Chapter 1. Also, I get an email to my "info@" email's inbox with the name and email of the person requesting the downloading.

I am getting spammed there, by some sort of robot, and do not know how to stop it.

This started yesterday morning, and continued every few minutes, non-stop. I even added a CAPTA requirements this morning, but that had no impact.

How do I stop this SPAM?

Hi Experts,

I'm after recommendations for someone or a company that can go through my Wordpress created website for Google Seach Engine Optimization and do the optimization for me at a reasonable price. I know very little about SEO apart from the purpose and importance of it. How to implement it on my site though, is beyond my own technical skills and experience.

I know that "reasonable price" is a subjective term and can't give a price that I'm willing to spend at this stage, except to say that I'd like to spend as little as possible :)

I'm open to all offers from both Experts Exchange members who have personal experience with doing this sort of thing, as well as recommendations from members who have personally used the services any companies they recommend I contact.

Thanks in advance for any offers and/or suggestions.

Regards, Andrew
For some reason, my server is hitting wp-admin/admin-ajax.php every second.  Even if I close every tab in the browser related to that site it won't stop accessing that url.  I have  narrowed it down to using only one of my ipV6 ip's.  I have tried the code below in functions.php which I put in the child theme's functions.php, did a restart but still it keeps accessing.  I installed Perfmatters and that hasn't stopped it and I installed the Heartbeat Monitor plugin and that hasn't stopped it.

This is taking down my server with that much activity and I can't seem to find a connection since I didn't know this was going on because I hadn't looked at the access_log for several days.  I have resorted to a cron entry to restart apache 2.4 every 5 minutes.

This is the code I tried in the functions.php

add_action( 'init', 'stop_heartbeat', 1 );
function stop_heartbeat() {

I am on Linux 2 with Wordpress 4.9.8.

Please help me get this stopped.

I have a wp site that is working fine on my windows production server, site is called jobs.org ( as an example).  I was asked to create the same site on the dev server so I copied over the wp files and called site dev.jobs.org . The same mysql database is still being used.  When going on the dev site I am getting:

PHP Fatal error:  Allowed memory size of 262144 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 1792 bytes) in \\******\SITES\dev\jobs.org\wp-includes\load.php on line 747

Can someone please explain what I am doing wrong? Is there some config change that has to be made? Is it necessary to create a second mysql database?

Thank you.
Wordpress form loads with endless loop.  After I modified a Wordpress form, it just goes through an endless loop when loading and does not allow input.  I don't remember what changes I made to the form that started the problem. The URL for the form is: https://www.barnwellmd.com/intake-questionnaire/ When I preview the form in Wordpress, it works properly.  I don't know how to extract the form from the Wordpress system to allow you all to work on it.  Any help will be appreciated.
I have a Synology DS918+ and have read various blogs/articles on how to create serparate instances of Wordpress so that multiple websites can be hosted without sharing a database.
These are a few of the resources I've used:


Each takes me very close but I can't get past the dreaded "HTTP ERROR 500"

I have managed to get as far as http://mytestdomain/wp-admin which prompts me for the database name, the username and password but I can't get past this point - each time I get HTTP ERROR 500

I've pretty much run out of things to try.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

followup question to Website Development Case Study (https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29124521/Website-Development-Case-Study.html)

I plan to get a Review Website off the ground (with affiliate marketing the right way).

WordPress is set up on my site: https://wireoo.com/

Now, my question is ... I want to design a website like Digital Trends https://www.digitaltrends.com/.  Is this type of site logically attainable? Or, will I be racked with major competition?  

When you look at Digital Trends Entertainment sectionhttps://www.digitaltrends.com/best-products/, there is a section of the website that is devoted to Online Movie Providers. I like that!

Am I going in the right direction with this review website?  

For the Appearance, I am starting with the header appearance. I want the text logo to begin the menu just like the two websites that I mentioned.

I want the header to be black in color with a mega menu.  Is this achievable for today? And, yes, I want to take small steps.

This course will introduce you to C++ 11 and teach you about syntax fundamentals.

I am starting this discussion early.  I am motivated and obsessed with getting this website off the ground.

I have found myself with self-imposed errors of grand magnitudes.  

I want to get this website off the ground, so I am going to ask for help every step of the way.

1.  Now, I have gone to wordpress.org to get a theme called GeneratePress https://wordpress.org/themes/generatepress/
as advised by Expert Favor.

2.  Next, I have downloaded the Plugin Beaver Page Builder from https://wordpress.org/plugins/beaver-builder-lite-version/
as advised by Expert Favor.

3.  I am going to upload these files to my website http://www.wireoo.com.
I am going to make sure that the HTTPS is upgraded in a few hours for security and SEO.

I plan to get a Review Website off the ground (with affiliate marketing the right way).

Now, my question is where do I go from here.  I do not want to make any mistakes as I have in the past three months.
I, respectfully, ask that you be patient with me as I am taking small steps and in the learning stages.  Just be aware that I am passionate about this quest so, please do not take me seriously.  I laugh, sometimes, for I am embarrassed in some instances. Have a good day!
I need to add a link in the footer that says Site Designed by www.designer.com after the copyright notice. When I had the link in the footer it went to mydomain.com/www.designer.com. How do I add a link after the copyright notice? Here is the current code for the footer:
<?php echo ( get_theme_mod('wpre_footer_text') == '' ) ? ('&copy; '.date_i18n(__('Y','wp-real-estate')).' '.get_bloginfo('name').__('. All Rights Reserved. ','wp-real-estate')) : esc_html( get_theme_mod('wpre_footer_text') ); ?>

Hi, I have a site truenasreseller.com, and we have a bunch of packages for people to purchase.

But some of the items are priced at zero dollars, if added to the system. EG: https://www.truenasreseller.com/truenas/truenas-m40-s/

We want the items to only be purchased as part of a system, not to be purchased individually. Can you help?

It has to tell them if they try to check out that with a secondary item that they need to add a system to qualify for a product that has no charge.
Hi Guys, I am going to start my first website design on my own. I have purchased the WP theme Rehub with Content Egg Pro and Affiliate Egg Pro. I may have overdone it.  I want to create a Review Website as I have been advised to develop by the Experts (after I have been whining for more than two months).  I like the idea of a review website. Something like Glassdoor or on the other side of the spectrum bizrate.  Can I get a little help getting started? Has anyone used the rehub development process?   I had to call Amazon to have them expedite my affiliate and seller's account after 4 months (now two hours active).  I am ready to work, now!
Query WordPress database.

I want to query the post_meta table and find the ID's of a product that has a SKU but an empty warehouse location.  I can get either or to work but not both.  I believe it is because one meta_value is empty and the other has an entry?
How do I join the tables and simplify this query?

SELECT p.ID, mp.post_id, p.post_title, mp.meta_value 
FROM wp_posts AS p, wp_postmeta AS mp 
WHERE (p.post_status='publish' AND p.post_type = 'product')
AND (p.ID = mp.post_id) 
AND (mp.meta_key = '_simple_product_location_field' AND mp.meta_value = '') 
AND (mp.meta_key = '_sku' AND mp.meta_value !='');

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.

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.

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?

Appreciate the help!

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 …
