  • Hi Tobias,
    No need to apologise and thank you for replying so quickly, you’ve created a great plugin. Super useful.
    I try and donate a small amount every time I use it on a client site,I hope you get enough people donating to support development adequately 😉

    Thanks for the tip about the members plugin. I must admit that a plugin that makes an irreversible change to the database is a little scary though.

    Cheers

    Brilliant thank you, that works !

    I had !important but in the css for the headings themselves not in the footer page css, I hadn’t realise I needed to account for the cascade in this way and would never have guessed it without you…

    I’m using this alongside UABB, a great plugin to extend Beaver Builder.

    Cheers

    Could be a permalink issue ?

    One trick is to go to settings > permalinks and hit the “save” button without changing anything. This will force WordPress to reset permalinks.

    Can you add the url to your post please, easier to try and look at it this way.

    In reply to: Password trouble

    Hi,
    It’s very unlikely that WordPress itself “destroys” your passwords. I’d suggest a couple of things:
    Check you haven’t got cap-lock or num-lock set on your keyboard when entering the password
    Check if you have a security plugin which is limiting log in attempts (such as Wordfence , ithemes security or such like) and, if so, loosen the setting to permit more than one attempt before it locks you out.

    I’ve had password issues before myself but it’s always been down to me missing out or mis-typing a character.

    Finally, if you find passwords hard to remember or type you could use a service like lastpass.com to securely store you passwords for you so you don’t have to type the out.

    I hope this helps

    Hey Nikhil,
    Have you had a chance to look at this please ?

    I’ll need to revert to the proper layout – so deactivate and delete the plugin – soon so if you are able to look then great. if not, no worries i’ll find another solution.

    Cheers

    In reply to: Sidebar border

    Hi,
    Try this code it should work – just replace the “blue” value with whatever hex colour you’d like, I tweaks padding and margins too:

    #sidebar {
    float: right;
    margin: 20px 0 0 10px;
    width: 290px;
    background-color: blue;
    padding: 10px 10px 0 10px;
    }

    I would recommend adding the CSS in the customiser as it’s a simple change, here:

    I hope this helps you.

    Hi Nikhil,

    Here is the url of the site – in development https://e-ha.co.uk/lbblinds/

    NB: you’ll see two footers one is added by your plugin, the other is a global BB row I am using instead for now

    I’m also attaching a screen shot of what those titles above images should look like – with the footer set back to “theme footer” i.e. with padding:

    And how it looks when I use a BB temlate via your plugin as the footer

    I hope this makes sense. let me know what you think

    In reply to: Sidebar border

    Hi,
    Try this code. I adjusted left margin and added some left padding. Without tweaking the margin your side bar gets thrown below the content. You can add this in the customiser > additional CSS if you prefer not to edit your style.css file.

    Try and avoid using the !important tag if at all possible as it can have unintended impact elsewhere in the css cascade:

    #sidebar {
    float: right;
    margin: 35px 0 0 10px;
    padding-left: 10px;
    width: 290px;
    border-left: 1px solid blue;
    }

    I hope this works for you

    Hi,
    Your site is displaying fine for me on chrome at your url. Did you change DNS recently ?
    Try clearing your browser cache or using a different browser and have a look.

    Perhaps have a look at Flatsome. Not used it myself yet but heard good things from a colleague who has used it.

    Enfold is also v good

    Hey,
    There are many theme options compatible with Woocommerce so the best thing to do is search for a theme you like and check compatibility.

    If you want full integration then Storefront with or without a child theme is a good bet as it’s made by the people at woothemes who also make Woocommerce. https://www.woothemes.com/storefront/

    WPML or Polylang is a matter of preference but again will also be influenced by theme compatibility so can’t really comment on that one.

    If you’re building an online business I’d go for solid themes and plugins, that can mean going premium rather than free but then it’s an ROI decision only you can make 😉

    Hope this helps.

    Hey,
    Difficult to investigate without seeing the site, can you post a link please so I can have a look ?

    Sometimes just going to the permalink section and clicking save – without changing anything – can help as it refreshes all the permalinks.

    Hey,
    Which ecommerce plugin are you using ?

    Assuming it’s Woocommerce you can create product categories and then assign a product to that category. Then you can link to that category from your menu for instance to take visitors directly to that category. If you have sub categories you simply make them a “child” of their “parent” category to manage hierarchy.

    Like blog posts, creating a category automatically generates an archive page for that category and a unique slug (url).

    You can then use Woocommerce layered nav widgets to help people navigate and filter by category and sub category in the side bar https://docs.woothemes.com/document/woocommerce-widgets/

    Is this what you were looking for ?
    Cheers

    Hi,
    No worries.

    In order to connect your domain to your WordPress website it first needs to be hosted on a web server. There are many options out there like Siteground, WP Engine to name two good options.

    Each will have their own process and can guide you through the steps to change what is called the DNS settings for your domain.

    So as I said you cannot point your domain to your website if it is installed with MAMP on your local machine. You must first buy hosting.

    Does this make sense ?
    Cheers

    Following with interest. And maybe someone can help me figure the question below:

    The auto configuration of the Wordfence WAF firewall isn’t working on Siteground hosting and I’m not sure I completely understand the instructions given by Wordfence here:

    https://docs.wordfence.com/en/Web_Application_Firewall_Setup?utm_source=plugin&utm_medium=pluginUI&utm_campaign=docsIcon

    When I’m in the PHP variables manager and I select the path for the relevant website
    the path says something like:
    /home/myaccount/public_html/jacqueline-audouard.com/php.ini

    I just have one small box to enter a variable below that but the instructions talk about entering the variable and then the path so is it correct to end up with something like this ?

    auto_prepend_file/home/username/public_html/wordfence-waf.php

    I’d really rather not break anything… so in doubt I will abstain from using Wordfence WAF until I’m sure of what I’m doing

    I assume all other functionality of Wordfence work as before even if the new WAF feature isn’t configured ?

    Thanks in advance
