Add support for the JetPack social menu

Since version 3.9 the JetPack plugin included the new module called Social menu which allows to create a new menu location in which to include social icons ]

To implement the compatibility of the JetPack social menu the developers of themes must carry out these actions:

Notwithstanding what is said in point 4, JetPack applies certain basic styles, and uses Genericons to create the menus, so if you like them the same you can skip that step.

5 keys to create an online store in WordPress • WordPress Help

WordPress, in combination with the plugin WooCommerce has become the winning choice for create online stores .

Although there are other solutions and plugins to create them, we will focus mainly on WooCommerce because it is the plugin most powerful, extensible and best supported WordPress for e-commerce .

There are many valid generic tips for WordPress websites out there, but there are some specific ones for online stores that you should pay attention to. In this article I have gathered the key elements you need for to have a secure and well optimized online store .

1. Get a server that complies with the PCI

 pci woocommerce

Compliance with the PCI is a stone that everyone stumbles upon when starting an online business. In case you want to accept direct online payments and store the credit card information on your website, the web must be compatible with the PCI .

PCI is a set of rules for your application and your server that guarantee that they are secure enough to store customer data . Part of PCI compliance depends on your hosting. There are periodic scans of the environment and the list of checks that your hosting has to go through is very long.

PCI compliance is not mandatory if you use PayPal, Stripe, or a similar payment processor, since actual credit card information and other sensitive payment information are not stored on your server.

Currently , WooCommerce is not compatible with PCI . This does not mean that the software is insecure or vulnerable. It means that their authors have not filled out a ton of papers and have not submitted themselves to the slow process of obtaining a certificate compatible with PCI. However, the application itself complies with the necessary security controls and it is expected that it will soon have the corresponding certification.

2. Obtain and install an SSL certificate

 ssl woocommerce

These certificates are used for two things: to guarantee visitors that you are a real website and to encrypt the connection between the server and the visitors' browsers.

There are different types of certificates that can be used. The main difference is the price and the trust they give to your visitors. The encryption technique is the same in all of them.

The own signature certificates which are not signed by a trusted authority, can be created all over the world. They should not be used for production facilities (which issue warnings in users' browsers) since they are free, but they are very suitable for testing or problem solving applications such as payment and shipping processors.

standard SSL certificates are issued by a trusted authority that guarantees that this is the real name of the domain they are visiting and not a site of phishing for example. They are issued by domain name only. Keep in mind that www.yourdomain.com and yourdomain.com are two different domain names. If you use subdomains like store.yourdomain.com, this type of SSL certificate may not be the best for you.

The WildCard certificates work with a domain name and all its subdomains included www. They are a bit more expensive but once you apply it to your domain you can encrypt all the subdomains you want.

The extended validation certificates work the same as the previous ones but there are additional controls. It is necessary to present the documentation of the company, answer a phone call, etc. EV certificates add more confidence to your visitors by letting them know that you are a reputable company.

There are other types of certificates, issued by Let's Encrypt . They are the same as standard SSL certificates but issued free of charge . The purpose of the foundation behind these certificates is to make the Internet safer by allowing more users to benefit from a secure connection. In SiteGround they sponsor this campaign from its first days in order to be able to provide free encryption to all its clients.

When you get your certificate it is relatively easy to make your web WordPress and WooCommerce work with it .

First, it is necessary to change the URL of the site and the configuration of the URL in Settings -> General . Then, you can force the use of HTTPS for all resources (images, video, etc.) on your page. To do this, you can use a plugin from WordPress like HTTPS (SSL) .

The good thing is that WooCommerce does not need any additional settings once you have set up WordPress correctly.

3. Use strong passwords and two-factor authentication

 secure payment woocommerce

Your security chain is as weak as the weakest link. If your username is "admin" and the password is "password123" in all certificates and PCI compliance checks, nothing in the world will prevent your website from being hacked.

Use strong, long passwords, with as many special characters as possible . Adds a two-factor authentication method to all users with administrator access. There are many different ways to do this, but the application Google Authenticator and Clef are two that are worth mentioning.

The latest version of WooCommerce has a very useful functionality that shows strength of user passwords, but you can add a plugin that requires the use of strong passwords . This way, you will make your users use passwords that are safe and hard to hack.

4. Improve the speed and performance of your web

 quickly woocommerce

Having a fast website is even more important when you are going to manage an online store. There is a lot of research done over the years and they all show that the conversion rate of your website is significantly reduced if it takes more than a second to load.

I would recommend running tools like GTMetrix and Pingdom to test the speed of your website and make sure it loads fast enough. Make sure you check all the different types of web pages and not just the index.

Although WooCommerce 2.5 brought a lot of performance optimizations, you still have to take special care with your store, especially with the images of the products .

Make sure they load in the optimal size and quality for the web. It is a good idea to use a plugin for general images, not just products. I especially like a plugin called EWWW Image Optimizer which does a great job of optimizing images, both in batches and on the fly.

5. Consider the growth options of your hosting a plan for the future

 hosting woocommerce

Everyone wants their online business to be popular and successful but are they really prepared for that moment?

The first thing to do is check the amount of resources (i-nodes, CPU seconds, number of processes, etc.) of your hosting account and make sure you have, at least double the numbers at your disposal .

It's a good idea to contact your hosting provider and check how their update policy works . For example, in SiteGround you can update your account from a shared one to a cloud in minutes and, if you already have a solution in the cloud, add resources instantly (and dynamically) but others may need more time. The last thing you want is to have an inactivity during your big marketing campaign or while your expensive TV ad is on screen.

To summarize …

Here are the 5 keys to creating an online store in WordPress :

  1. Obtain a server that complies with the PCI
  2. Obtain and install an SSL certificate
  3. Use secure passwords and two-factor authentication
  4. Improve the speed and performance of your website
  5. Consider the growth options of your hosting, a plan for the future

Make sure you can keep all this under control. If you do this, you will ensure the safe operation of your online store and you will avoid problems in the future!

HTTP / 2 and WordPress – The future of the Web

The HTTP protocol is the engine that moves the Internet, without which you could not be reading this blog, nor buy online, share content in your networks social and all those things that we are used to.

Now, this protocol, in the HTTP / 1.1 version had not been updated since 1999, but that's it: Welcome HTTP / 2!

What is HTTP / 2?

 HTTP-2 "width =" 480 "height =" 240 "srcset =" http://bootstrapx.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/HTTP-2.png 480w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/HTTP-2-319x160.png 319w "sizes =" (max-width: 480px) 100vw, 480px "/> </p>
<p> Not a plugin, it's not a bird, it's not an airplane, it's <strong> a new network protocol for the WWW </strong> that comes to improve the current HTTP: the connections between the browser and the web page. </p>
<p> it is about <strong> an improvement of the current HTTP protocol so that the connections to web pages are faster and more efficient </strong>reducing time between calls. </p>
<p> It is <strong> a great improvement </strong>which has been pending since 1999, and that Google started with its <a href= protocol SPDY in 2009, now abandoned when adopting HTTP / 2.

Why is HTTP / 2 better?

 http-vs-http2 "width =" 550 "height =" 538 "srcset =" http://bootstrapx.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/http-vs-http2-550x538.gif 550w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/http-vs -http2-60x60.gif 60w "sizes =" (max-width: 550px) 100vw, 550px "/> </a> </p>
<p> Broadly speaking, and being practical, some of the improvements it incorporates are: </p>
<ul>
<li><strong> HTTP / 2 requests are much smaller </strong> in size since <strong> uses compression </strong>. </li>
<li><strong> HTTP / 2 uses multiplexing </strong>which allows the sending and receiving of several files at the same time [19659013] HTTP / 2 allows the server to "launch" the content gone </strong>that is, that responds with data to most requests that the client requests. This allows the server to offer data that it knows the browser will need to display a web without having to wait for the browser to receive the first response, and without having to do another cycle of requests. </li>
<li><strong> HTTP / 2 can leave the connection open </strong> for reuse </li>
<li><strong> With HTTP / 2 the browser makes many fewer requests to the server </strong>resulting in a significant reduction in page load time. </li>
<li><strong> HTTP / 2 no longer needs the Most of the HTTP 1.1 syntax </strong>such as methods, status codes, header fields, URIs, etc. The element to be displayed is transported directly between the client and the server. </li>
<li><strong> Fewer headers to transmit </strong> because HTTP / 2 uses compression </li>
<li><strong> HTTP / 2 requires a smaller amount of data </strong>which it translates into less loading time. </li>
<li><strong> HTTP / 2 changes the loading order </strong>which gets a more efficient load of the page when the elements are prioritized. </li>
</ul>
<p> The first tests show <strong> a improvement of between 20% and 30% in the speed </strong> of downloading the page with this update. </p>
<h2><span id= What do I have to do to use HTTP / 2?

The first thing you should know is that ] the latest versions of the most used browsers are already compatible with HTTP / 2 which is also compatible with previous versions of the protocol, so if you decide to pass to HTTP / 2, you do not lose any users, neither visit nor sale .

The only thing you need to Benefit from this improvement is an SSL certificate and that your hosting provider enables HTTP / 2 on your server if you are already prepared for it. If you are already working with a provider like SiteGround ask to have this functionality enabled, since your servers are ready .

If you have a online store surely you already have an SSL certificate so, what are you waiting for? Speed ​​up your website! Start using HTTP / 2!

HTTP / 2 and WordPress

 WordPress http2

Actually you do not need to do anything in WordPress so you can use the HTTP / 2 protocol apart from having an SSL certificate installed and active and that your hosting provider will activate HTTP / 2.

On the other hand, when using HTTPS, you must make sure that you are serving all your content in https , without mixed content that is, that there is nothing in your site that is still used in http.

Where if you have to do some work, if you did not do it already when going to HTTPS and it is to check that you do not use anything in http, instead of https .

I am referring to images, permanent links, redirects, etc. You should check your WordPress configuration file ( wp-config.php ) to verify that you define your routes with https, and the file .htaccess to review any possible redirection that you still have to an http, for example.

Also, it's not too much to check if there is a plugin that generates absolute http addresses instead of relative ones, whatever that might be.

Of course, you should have in Settings -> General the site address and WordPress in https.

There are plugins like, Really Simple SSL the one that I recommended you the other day talking about SSL which does most of this work, but it does not hurt a review for mixed content. The same browser will inform you if this is happening or not.

But come on, that in principle you do not have to do anything to use HTTP / 2 that you should not already do to have your WordPress with HTTPS but if you were not exhaustive at the time maybe now it is not too much to put yourself to it, for take advantage of all the advantages of both technologies .

HTTP / 2 and developers

 http2 vs http1

Over the years, developers and experts in SEO have developed practices to try to bypass the restrictions and weaknesses of the HTTP / 1.1 protocol, so both plugins and themes have been incorporating a series of tricks that, if active HTTP / 2 is not only necessary but they are counterproductive .

For example, it is very common to use compression, combination and asynchronous loading of CSS files and JavaScript . There are themes that do it by default, and a multitude of SEO plugins, let alone Cache, which also incorporate it.

This, which is a good idea if you're on HTTP / 1.1 is just what you should not do in HTTP / 2 because you do not need it and you will be using resources and processes that harm the performance of your web, being unnecessary.

What is a practice totally discouraged in HTTP / 2 is the fragmentation in several domains known as " sharding ", since it forces more DNS queries.

In short, if you are a developer of WordPress themes or plugins, keep in mind that you do not need to use more sprites or combine unnecessary files or upload assets in your code .


 HTTP2

In short, is a good idea to set up HTTP / 2 on your website since you're going to improve the user experience, thanks to the fact that Downloading the page will be faster and more orderly, and is compatible with your current site, and in principle you do not have to implement anything in your code, nor install any plugin or anything similar.

The HTTP improvements / 2 are tremendous and views in a practical way can be summarized in …

  1. Web faster
  2. Web more secure, it forces the adoption of SSL
  3. Web more optimized for mobile
  4. Less consumption of server resources

In case you are not clear enough, I summarize the changes you must do on your website to offer maximum speed and an unbeatable user experience :

  1. Activate a CDN
  2. Offer your secure website through HTTPS with an SSL certificate
  3. Ask your hosting provider to activate HTTP / 2 on the server

Do you already have your website on HTTP / 2? Do you have any doubts? Something that has happened to me?

Second row of editor tools open by default • WordPress Help

One of the questions that most students ask me in the WordPress courses is what they have to do to see the second row of editor tools that which allows to change paragraph style, change colors to texts or add margins to text.

The answer is simple: " click on the last button of the editor toolbar and the second one opens ". Yes, that when you pass the cursor over it says that " Alternate Toolbar "

But look where some smart programmer has thought of saving me this kind of questions ] and has created a plugin so that, when activated, the second row of the editor toolbar is always open by default .

It seems to me too much, it is something as basic as if you open the second row of WordPress tools once " remembers " and will always show you but hey, there are tastes for everyone.

Now I have the question of whether to tell students to click on the last button to show it or install the plugin. I think it will be the first thing, but if it ever works for you, for example so that a client does not call you to ask you that bobadita as soon as you give it to the web, one more thing you know.
