Adam Czajczyk commented on Upfront and marketpressApr 23, 2017
Hello, Linda! I must admit that I'm not nginx expert. Instructions gave in Hummingbird seem to be pretty clear and if applied carefully, shouldn't cause any issues but I can understand that you're afraid of "messing up" with it, especially after you host suggested not to touch nginx config :) However, if you got CloudFlare implemented, it should already be applying "browser caching". It'd be on a "cloudflare -> end user" line only and on "your site -> cloudflare" line content wouldn't be cached but on the other hand that actually doesn't make much of a difference in that case :) If there wasn't CloudFlare in front of the site, I'd strongly recommend giving Hummingbird caching a try but I think in this case you may skip it. I think however that some "full site" caching would do good to your site: W3 Total Cache, WP Super Cache, WP Batcache - one of these plugins would make a nice addition to the Hummingbird and CloudFlare. Just note please: if you dedice to install any of them, make sure that in its options you got any minification settings switched off (so only Hummingbird would perform it). Best regards, Adam
Adam Czajczyk commented on Smush Pro images still need smushingApr 23, 2017
Hello Oighen! Yes, you can super-smush selected images only with a small "trick": - disable "Auto-smush on upload" so images uploaded meanwhile wouldn't be smushed - enable "super-smush" option - do NOT click on "Bulk smushing" (as plugin will encourage you to do this) - go to "Media -> Library" page - if you got it set to a "List" view, you'll notice "Super-Smush" button for each of the images that can be super-smushed; if you got it set to "Grid" view - either switch to list or just enter "Edit" screen for selected image and "Super-Smush" button will be there Clicking on "Super-Smush" button there will only process that selected image. Once you have super-smushed all the images you want, go back to the "Media -> WP Smush" page, disable super-smushing option and enable "autosmushing on upload" back. Best regards, Adam
Adam Czajczyk commented on Can't make SmartCrawl settings show in single site settingsApr 23, 2017
Hello Frédéric H-Fournier, I hope you're well today! I'm not, however, sure what bug do you mean as there was no bug reported here. The first issue - with SmartCrawl activation on Multisite - was a slight misunderstanding and my colleague explained what to do in his follow up post. It's not a bug, that's the way the plugin works. As for the sitemap issue. We weren't able to replicate that and author of this thread never responded to Dimitris question. I don't see that reported as well. That being said, I appreciate your feedback on this and if you feel there is a bug that's been mentioned here and has not been fixed yet let us know please what do you mean and what should we try to do to reproduce it. Kind regards, Adam
Adam Czajczyk commented on Upfront and marketpressApr 23, 2017
Hello, Linda! I'm not sure if you're referring to the Ultimate Branding now :) If you do, then the same applies but please note that in this case Ultimate Branding may not be able to help you with "everything" because Upfront is quite a specific theme and it's very different, in terms of code and structure, than any other WordPress theme. However, if it comes to Upfront itself: - Upfront is a parent theme and Parrot (as well as other "starting themes") is its child theme - If you customize Parrot using Upfront editor ("Upfront" link on admin toolbar or "Appearance -> Customize" menu), it will stay customized even if you disabled it - if you then enable it back it will pick up your customization Best regards, Adam

Hello, Jonathan! I see in our internal ticketing system that there's a patch ready and it's been initially tested. It's undergoing final tests currently and if it passes them it will be included in an upcoming release. Best regards, Adam
Adam Czajczyk commented on Is there a way to migrate current photo gallery to WPMU photo gallery?Apr 23, 2017
Hello Leslie, I hope you're well today and thank you for your question! I'm not sure if I follow you. Do you want to migrate several single WP sites ...
Adam Czajczyk commented on membership plugin and business directory pluginApr 23, 2017
Hello Corn, I hope you're fine :) The Membership 2 Pro plugin should work well with most of the plugins of that kind. I assume you're asking specifically about this one: https://wordpress.org/plugins/business-directory-plugin/ I can see no reason why wouldn't it work together. I briefly test it on my end and it looks to be working fine. I'm now aware of a way you'd like to use them together though so it might be better if you gave it a try on some testing site. If you notice any issues, just let us know and we'll do our best to help you solve them. Best regards, Adam
Adam Czajczyk commented on wpmu dev being able to diagnose a white screening siteApr 23, 2017
Hello Corn, I hope you're well today and thank you for your question! That "white screening" that you are referring to is commonly known as a "white screen of death" and is a quite common issue. There's no need for special tools, though reasons for it might be very different. Troubleshooting is nearly always the same though: - enable WP debugging via "wp-config.php" and see if there are any Fatal Errors; if there are, most likely they are descriptive enough to suggest solution - if that doesn't help, turning off all the plugins via FTP usually helps; then - after getting site back up and running - you would want to login to it as an admin and turn those plugins back on one by one; at some point site goes down again and you know that the last plugin that you enabled is causing the issue. - sometimes its just matter of too low WP memory limit but that's also usually connected to the type/number of plugins active on the site so either switching some of them off or raising WP memory limit helps If none of this works, there's no "algorithm" on what to do. In such cases we would need a full access to the site (including FTP, cPanel) and would need to "search" as it might be something in server configuration, a caching issue, some error in the code (for example a small typo in child-theme code that's just been customized by someone). It's more like a "detective's work" then rather than a ready to apply recipe :) Best regards, Adam
Adam Czajczyk commented on allow people to pay via paypal based on membership they choose on a formApr 23, 2017
Hello Corn, I hope you're well today and thank you for your question! I checked the form and I think BuddyPress + our Membership 2 Pro should handle that just fine :) First step would be to use BuddyPress and it's "User profile fields" to create all the form fields to gather information. Alternatively, you could also use Gravity Forms plugin with its registration add-on if you only want to gather information without building entire complex profile. Then in Membership 2 Pro you could create memberships and configure PayPal gateway and finally - use Membership 2 Pro "Profile Fields" add-on to make sure that all these additional fields are displayed on registration form. Membership 2 Pro would then handle all the payments and BuddyPress or Gravity Forms would handle the form. If you have any additional questions on this, let us know please. Best regards, Adam
Adam Czajczyk commented on trying to determine what is causing a site to white screenApr 23, 2017
Hello Corn, I hope you're doing fine today! Thank you for posting error log. the issue here is that the "wordfence-waf.php" file cannot be open by WordPress. This file comes from WordFence plugin and is used for WordFence Web Application Firewall. If the plugin is enabled with application firewall option enabled, removing that file would cause such issue. To fix it, follow these steps: - access your site using FTP or cPanel's "File Manager" tool - in a root folder of the site look for "user.ini" or ".user.ini" file (the latter one includes a dot at the beginning of a file name so you need to make sure that you got option to show hidden files enabled) - view the file to confirm if it includes code similar to this: ; Wordfence WAF auto_prepend_file = '/path_to_your_site/wordfence-waf.php' ; END Wordfence WAF If it does, just remove the file and it should bring the site back. Once you got the site up and running you will want to go to WordFence settings end either make sure that Firewall is disabled or enable it again and then if Defender shows "wordfence-waf.php" file as "suspicious", ignore that warning. Best regards, Adam
