• Hi Wesley,

    Go into your Wordpress Website’s dashboard, down to the plugins -> add new tab, and then click on “add new” at the top left of the page. You will then be directed to a page called “add plugins”. To the right you will see a search bar with “search plugins” inside it. Type in “Better Delete Revision” and it will show up. Make sure that…[Read more]

  • Thanks Maria. I appreciate your help. Now, how do I find/install this plug
    in? Despite being a blogger for a few years now, I’m still relatively
    ignorant about the under the hood stuff.
    I think you may be on to something since I don’t recall to have ever
    cleaned up my revisions, and every post I’ve published has several of them.
    Please let me…[Read more]

  • Hi Wesley,

    Do you keep your post revisions? I know it’s not related to your pages, but that might be causing some issues. If it is so, there just might be too much information for WordPress to take in and for whatever reason, that particular page is being targeted. If you don’t have the Better Delete Revision plugin installed, you should install…[Read more]

  • One page of my blog, Colltales.com, won’t update with the latest text additions. All others do, so it’s something related to that particular page.
    It already has over 240K words, and it’s been updated weekly for a few years now; not this time, though.
    No matter how I try, using both old and new editors, I get the same error message, saying that…[Read more]

  • I have a WordPress e-commerce site that uses the Shopp e-commerce plugin, and has a PayPal off-site checkout as a checkout option for shoppers. when a customer purchases via PayPal, my Google Analytics account shows those conversion sources as PayPal, which is inaccurate. I need to know the original sources of those conversions.

    I use the Google…[Read more]

  • I never used WP Migrate DB or Pro, but I heard good things about both. I also believe you can try it out for 60 days, and if you’re not happy they will refund your purchase:

  • Hi everyone,

    I am looking for a good Wordpress Database Migration tool/application I can use for WordPress development. I want to be able to push data from my local environment onto a live (pseudo) staging server as well as the final production site. I have looked into WP Migrate DB, but the thing is, the “free” version does so little that I…[Read more]

  • Hello everybody!

    So I am trying to do something that is turning out to be more complicated than I thought it would be…I need an e-mail marketing software (i.e. aweber, ontraport, etc.) that I can integrate with a membership plugin (i.e. Buddypress). The goal is to be able to create custom fields in the membership plugin and have them appear in…[Read more]

  • Thank you Steve and Dan!

  • I use http://dnsimple.com for DNS. A little more expensive than other places but good.

  • Namecheap for DNS and Google apps for email

  • We really like WPengine for hosting WordPress, but they do not provide services for DNS and Email. So, while we still had sites on MediaTemple, we’ve been using them for DNS and Email. Since GoDaddy acquired MediaTemple, their support has been really terrible, so we’d like to close down our MediaTemple account.

    Who would you recommend for just…[Read more]

  • @chad– It really depends on your budget and traffic. Here are some good webhosts to start with. I suggest you discuss your situation with their pre-sales support.

  • Thanks Steve

    I understand wordpress.com is a good example of multi-site but i also know Automatic is behind it. I checked out Edublogs.org but it seemed to me that every sign up was a multi-site install. I have read the WPMUdev article and it seems that it shouldn’t be a problem.

    Steve any suggestions on a host for something like this?

  • Keep in mind that big multisite installations have needs/requirements beyond just getting and configurng a more powerful server.

    @Chad: I PM’d you to continue the discussion.

  • @chad– Multisite can host millions (literally) of sites. Two examples are WordPress.com (50+ million) and edublogs.org (3+ million).

    Performance is not going to be an issue of WordPress itself, but how you configure your server, the power of your server and your overall traffic. The higher the traffic, the more powerful the server required……[Read more]
