  • Great plugin!

    Yes, this will be a Useful addition.

    Thanks for creating Simple Share!

    Emily,
    your site looks pretty cool!
    I would keep both sidebars as this is what makes this theme great..At least one of the cool features that i think makes it great.

    To make a post show the entire article you go to:
    Dashboard-Settings-Reading- and click full. It’s set now to “Summary” which i also recommend as it adds more variety to have 2 or 3 post choices to click on without having to scroll down a huge page to see the 2nd and 3rd ones, etc. It’s also better for your page speed. It’s more professional..

    Make sure to install these plugins:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordfence/ just set to default-keep it simple.
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/p3-profiler/ this is a temp one to see what plugins are taking the longest to load your site.
    http://www.whatsmyip.org/http-compression-test/ skinny is currently not sending compressed data to visitors browsers. The easiest, fastest and simplest way to speed up your site site experience is to make sure your pages are gzipped.

    Make sure your .htaccess file(located usually in your root folder) has this code in it:
    ———————-
    <IfModule mod_deflate.c>
    <IfModule mod_filter.c>
    AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/plain text/html application/x-httpd-php-source
    AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/xml application/xml application/xhtml+xml application/xml-dtd
    AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/rdf+xml application/rss+xml application/atom+xml image/svg+xml
    AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/css text/javascript application/javascript application/x-javascript
    AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE font/truetype application/x-font-ttf font/opentype application/x-font-otf
    </IfModule>
    </IfModule>

    <IfModule mod_expires.c>

    ExpiresByType image/jpg “access 1 month”
    ExpiresByType image/jpeg “access 1 month”
    ExpiresByType image/gif “access 1 month”
    ExpiresByType image/png “access 1 year”
    ExpiresByType text/css “access 1 month”
    ExpiresByType application/pdf “access 1 month”
    ExpiresByType text/x-javascript “access 1 month”
    ExpiresByType application/x-shockwave-flash “access 1 month”
    ExpiresByType image/x-icon “access 1 month”
    ExpiresDefault “access 1 month”
    </IfModule>
    ## EXPIRES CACHING ##
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]

    If you use SEO Plugin by Yoast, he has a great feature that lets you edit your robots.txt file and your .htaccess file Without having to login to your webhost cp. You can just drop this code in from the plugin and your site will be gzipped(compressed) which will make it load alot faster!

    tools.pingdom.com shows your site already loads pretty fast! but it’s still good for your server and overall practise to make sure your files are pre-compressed for browsers–especially mobile ones.

    Cheers on your cool site! x

    i could be totally wrong but i seem to remember that Yoast’s SEO plugin has a permalinks setting that may change the ? marks on urls.

    Also, Hans, is it ok to use the setting “no lightbox” rather than Shutter in order to minimize calling up an extra stylesheet? I’ve had it on this setting recently (no lightbox) and it seems to work fine.

    And finally, is there a chance that we will be able to employ a different gallery plugin than Nextgen? Nextgen is cool but a HUGE plugin as far as load time with all their bells and whistles.

    Thanks!

    Hi Hans,

    Your fix works great!
    I uploaded wp-greet 3.3.
    I was using ngg 1.9.13 so i updated to 2.0.7
    I logged into server, found the file your fix points to, and dropped in the new code.
    Optimized the database and cleared the cache.
    Now, the ecards thumbnails point to wp-greet as they should.

    Thanks so much for your help! I saved your “fix code” into a text file for any future ngg updates.

    Hi Hans,

    Thanks so much for your reply. I rolled back to NGG 1.9.13. a few days ago and everything seems to be working fine. I was worried as I thought I had tweaked the NGG code previously–and thought it lost–but evidently all is well.

    Having said that, your idea of coming up with a new gallery may be the way to go as well as to keep wp-greet a g r e a t wordpress plugin.
    I’ve been using it to showcase artists and have many galleries with over 800 images all handled efficiently by wp-greet.

    Many Thanks!
