After updating I can not post, just send to review • WordPress Help

A few days ago a good friend was found that, after updating WordPress, had lost permissions on his administrator account . I could not create users and some other things, but above all I could not even publish anything on your site, the only button available was to send it to review .

Investigating a bit I found some possible solutions to this embarrassing problem:

In any of these steps you should be able to republish and access the rest of the settings on your website, but go on to the next one and so on.

WordPress turns 11! – WordPress Help

Currently, 22.3% of all Websites are created with WordPress and is chosen by 60% of all websites that use CMS being used by large companies and media, creating jobs and helping every day to that any Internet user can publish easily and with all the power of any professional website .

There are many challenges to overcome, errors to avoid and improvements to incorporate, but today WordPress turns 11 and is a reason to celebrate that every day is more alive.

Let's finish with puffy WordPress themes!

 wp bloat ayudawp

If you're sick of WordPress themes becoming increasingly complex, becoming huge piles of code, shortcodes, plugins incorporated, and all kinds of blocks, then it's time to start the revolution against the WordPress theme bloat .

And the place to start complaining, and get your label to protest WP Bloat .

It's worth mentioning that in any market of themes you find true wonders, full of elements that make the subject really showy, but is it really necessary? code? do not you realize that if you use a bloated theme you are tied to it for life?

WordPress was born for simplicity, to make web creation and content management easy. So what's the point of using a topic that occupies and consumes more than the CMS itself? do not you think it's crazy to depend on shortcodes and characteristics that cause the simple fact of changing If you want to use shortcodes is better than make your own plugin if you want extra functionality install a plugin, if you want to modify the appearance of a theme edits the CSS.

Today there are issues where nothing is left to chance. The moment you install them your content disappears, you have to configure every aspect of the design and even WordPress from, of course, its huge adjustment panel.

And what's worse, WordPress updates will not return to be the same because when using non-standard functions you should check exhaustively that everything works with the new version, and wait for a new version of the theme, if it exists, something that I have found in a lot of occasions on customer sites

This implies that if tomorrow you want to change the subject you will have to start over from scratch, or worse you will have to delete shortcodes rearrange your content, sometimes even your tag structure and categories.

Seriously, it's a real madness.

So compromise and, whether you're a developer or a user, do not support the bloated themes , promote , bet, install and create themes that use standard functions, with what is necessary for the end user, that does not tie the WordPress user to a specific topic.

If you still have doubts I invite you to see the talk again WordPress vs Frameworks where this issue was extensively discussed.

JetPack 3.0 – Radical change

 jetpack 3.0

Just released version 3.0 of the JetPack megaplugin with interesting novelties beyond aesthetic changes and module management .

The list of the novelties of JetPack 3.0 is noteworthy:

  • New user interface management modules and settings ]now all integrated, selection of modules by category, preferred and more, in the style of the theme browser.
  • Site verification tool a new module from which to verify your site in the Webmaster tools of Google, Bing and Pinterest, really useful.
  • New aspect of the Share module.
  • Several improvements in the way the Twitter cards are managed.
  • New option for hide the Google+ authoring banner s in cease to recognize the authorship of content
  • Many improvements in infinite scroll, especially in performance
  • JSON Enhanced API
  • New filter to assign a default image to Open Graph tags ]
  • New short code to be able to manually insert the related entries instead of using the default location
  • The YouTube short code now allows HD playback
  • Improvements to the Google Maps short code
  • Improvements in the mosaic galleries
  • … much more


Well I did not like the redesign . To start the new interface consumes many more resources than the previous one and, to finish worsening the thing, it turns out that is anything but intuitive to guess where the modules are activated or deactivated . In this respect it is a complete delay.

 configuration jetpack 3.0

If before in each module, without changing the screen, you could activate, deactivate or configure, now that home screen is pure marketing, irrelevant at all, unnecessary, come on, it's too much . Now everything you do in the configuration tab (not very visible by the way).

They have wanted to do a cool thing, that the modules are activated and deactivated in batches (which is not bad idea) but the simplicity and the user experience have been left on the way.

Come on, a monumental shit in terms of usability .

Regarding the functionalities, the tool Verification of the site is a basic, totally essential and improvements in the Twitter Cards and Open Graph were a must . The new interface of Sharing does not add anything, it only removes colors to the buttons and little more.

 verification site jetpack 3.0

 share jetpack 3.0

In summary, very well for the incorporation of the verification of the site in Google, Bing, Pinterest and for the improvements in Twitter Cards and Open Graph, improvement in the short codes of YouTube is necessary, and interface update failed .

I do not know what you will think.

October CMS, back to the basics • WordPress Help

 octobercms logo

Last Friday a new content management system came out that promises to return the web creation and publication to the basics : October CMS .

According to the philosophy of October CMS created by Alexey Bobkov and Samuel Georges the current systems they have become complicated, and it offers us a simple platform, by which, for example, we can easily create a template on the topic and apply the URL directly, something that would be done like this:

October CMS is based on PHP and the framework Laravel and its main features are the following:

:: Installation with assistant ::

The requirements to install October CMS are as follows:

  • PHP 5.4 or higher with safe_mode disabled.
  • PHP PDO.
  • PHP cURL.
  • MCrypt PHP
  • PHP ZipArchive

Although the list seems long, most current servers already offer it, but you should always check beforehand.

If your server complies requirements, you just have to download the installer or download a copy from the repository .

If you choose the installer, the best option, the procedure is as follows:

  1. Prepare an empty directory on your server . It can be a sub-directory, the root folder or a subdomain.
  2. Download the installer file .
  3. Unzip the installer file in the directory of your server where you want to install October CMS. [19659030] Give write permissions to the installation directory and all its subdirectories and files
  4. Navigate to the script install.php from your web browser
  5. Follow the instructions of the installer.

:: Page Components ::

Components are page building blocks. Simply add a component to the page and this adds new features and then you configure it with the Inspector, a visual tool with which to manage the properties of the components, all without having to program.

 octobercms components

:: Extensible platform: plugins ::

As with any other CMS you can extend the features of October CMS with plugins. The classes that use the plugins are very simple, simply describe the plugin and register the features you want to have.

There is a page available with a few fundamentals, which you can not do without.

]  octobercms plugins

:: Ajax Framework ::

The AJAX framework frameworkword allows you to easily make a request for forms or buttons. These requests are managed by the components of your own page code or design.

 octobercms ajax-framework

:: Simple administration ::

Although not what you expect in WordPress if that has an administration interface with good virtues. The best thing is that it uses very little PHP code and the configuration files are simple, almost human.

 octobercms administration

:: Templates based on text files ::

Pages, designs and partials are just files, one per template. Thanks to this the themes are easily manageable by means of systems of revision of versions like Git or SVN.

 octobercms system files

The structure of the subjects is quite simple: [19659029] Pages – entries and pages of the website.

  • Partials – reusable HTML markup chunks. This is one of the best features of October CMS.
  • Designs – the files that define the look of the web.
  • Content files – text blocks, HTML or Markdown that can be edited independently of the page or layout
  • Resource files – resource files such as images, and CSS and JavaScript files.
  • A typical structure of a October CMS theme would look like this:

    themes /
    web /

    You have the complete documentation on issues of October CMS on this page .

    Do you want to know more ?, then take a look at this video it explains itself and it's a good review.

    I'm testing it on my local machine and, although it changes the working method that I'm used to, I have to say it's very easy to use and modify, it has very interesting concepts.

    you tell us what you think.

    Inactive WordPress widgets

     customize wordpress widgets

    Today I'll talk a little bit about the inactive widgets that we have in WordPress. [19659004] Do not know what they are?

    Come on, go to admin of your WordPress Appearance Widgets and look down at the bottom. [19659004] Or maybe you know that it was there, but you've never used it.

    Do not worry I'll explain a little bit for what it can do for you.


    It really is not that has some super important uses, but if I think we should use it.

    The most important thing is that any widget that your goals inside, saves the configuration that you have it on.

    If you put a widget text, it stores it.

    If you put one that has several things to configure, it saves that configuration.

     WordPress inactive widgets

    Save a widget

    I put myself in your place

    You are making some changes to your WordPress and of course

    To make a structural modification and not have to create the widgets again, this place to save them comes in handy.

    I do not know about you, but I design webs, with which I have a lot of trite design issues, I still have a hard time having to do something again.

    Imagine having to go back to Facebook to create share buttons, the Twitter widget, the Google+ badge or something else.

    The truth is that it's a pain in the neck and a waste of time.

    Pos Nothing.

    You remove it from its site.

    You put it in idle widgets and it does not bother you there.

    When you need it again, you just have to pick it up and put it where you need it.

    OR you may also have the same widget, but with 2 different settings.

    tell you something.

    Have 2 text widgets with Adsense. One with an ad of a fixed size and another responsive and you want to go testing the change to see which gives you the best result.

    The possibilities are endless and the limits are set by you.

    Creating a widget [19659016] Imagine that you are creating a widget to do anything.

    For example:

    You are preparing one to insert an email capture form.

    Everything you want to insert in your web, you have that you can configure it before

    You can not put a widget in the sidebar and keep saving to see how it is going.

    Or at least I do not recommend doing it.

    Another thing is that once you're ready and working, you want to change something.

    There are widgets that need a lot of configuration.

    If you have a website with enough visits and you add a widget halfway, your visitors may want to interact with it and not be ready to put it into production.

    That's why we should use inactive widgets.

    You put the widget there, you configure it, you review it before, and then you put it where you need it.

    Creating a website

    Do you think you can make a web based of widgets?

    I answer you. Yes.

    There are WordPress templates that have a page creator from the home to any other and is done through widgets.

    You create several widgets to do several things like a widget for clients, another where I show a product, another for a contact form, etc.

    And then on each page there is a system with which you put the pieces of the puzzle.

    This is on the right, the other on the left. This I put it wider and higher, etc.

    Here having an inactive widgets created makes things much easier for us.

    You just go picking them up and inserting where you need them.

    Now you see them more useful, right? [19659004] –

    From my point of view it's a very interesting feature and that I did not use before.

    And that's available since version 2.8 .

    So my advice is that you use it if you see fit, although from my point of view, totally recommendable.

    If you liked this, I invite you to learn more on my website Ragose .
