Help WordPress comes home

 cloud computing

There are already many migrations that WordPress has suffered, and that is that although the first hosting was with CDmon, it has already passed by Mediatemple, CDmon again back in 2008, some great years with Gigas to, now, go back to its original house, again by the hand of CDmon a provider that I have never tired of recommending

In the following days there will still be fringes to be fixed, as in any migration, but I am sure that we will all enjoy the new change of accommodation, I am already doing it for days, thanks to the good people of CDmon .

Its advantages, as already expressed in the page on Hosting WordPress are huge, and I'll write them down in case you're considering choosing a provider …

  • Own control panel: is a panel designed by developers, in c Continuous innovation thanks to the suggestions of the users. It is intuitive, easy to use, and allows you to easily perform actions that would otherwise require extensive technical knowledge, such as configuring PHP, registering directives, creating FTP or MySQL accounts, it is a real joy that once you know it, you no longer want back to CPanel or similar.
  • Free services like the hosting test platform : this is a free hosting in which you can install WordPress or any other CMS and develop the web without any cost Every 30 days you can renew this service and design your site with the peace of mind that you still do not pay for hosting. The difference with the other accommodations is that the page is not visible to the general public. It is accessed via username and password. It is when you publish the web on the Internet that you start paying for the hosting plan you choose. It is a great solution to create new projects and not start paying until it is live and live. Other free services are the private Whois, the DNS, the parking pages, the redirects and the Microplan : the latter is a basic hosting that can be activated with the hiring of a domain . That is to say, for a very affordable price like that of a domain, the user can already have a web hosting with 10 MB of space, 1G of transfer and a personalized email account of 100 MB. It does not work to install a CMS but for fundamental issues like at least having an email or a welcome page.
  • Flexible plans : moving from one plan to another, either to grow or to diminish resources is very easy and the same user can do it from the Control Panel. In the case of changing to a lower plan, they compensate you with expiration. This is great, because you do not need to talk to anyone or hire new plans to a greater need: you simply increase the benefits of your accommodation live.
  • Free migration : facilitate the arrival at CDmon for anyone who comes from another provider. They do not charge anything for the migration of the web. They take care of everything and it's totally free.
  • Hosting with Spanish IP by default: because if you want to boost your positioning in search engines nothing like a web hosting in your own country. By the way, the latency decreases, which also improves the speed of the site.
  • 24-hour technical assistance: The main hallmark of CDmon, and I attest to that, is customer service. The fact of speaking the same language, of responding quickly, of being decisive. They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week throughout the year for technical consultations.
  • WordPress : Finally, another of the wonders of CDmon is that it offers a CMS installer that you will always find as highlighted to WordPress, but do not end there the advantages offered by having WordPress with CDmon. It is especially interesting to be able to easily configure aspects of PHP such as safe mode register_globals the size and maximum time of upload and wait, or even more advanced variables such as cookie session times on the server or configure Suhosin.

Come on, I'm delighted, and not only do not have to pay out of pocket for the cost of maintaining a blog like WordPress Help which gives many joys but zero economic performance, but to be able to count on CDmon and its excellent and kind technical and commercial service.

7 years of WordPress Help

 7-años-ayudawordpress "width =" 425 "height =" 215 "class =" aligncenter size-full wp-image-76849 " srcset = "ños-ayudawordpress.png 425w, years-helpwordpress-319x160.png 319w "sizes =" (max-width: 425px) 100vw, 425px "/> </p>
<p> Like every year, just after Christmas, <strong> Help WordPress celebrates anniversary </strong>and already they go no less than <strong> 7 years </strong> offering news, tricks and guides on WordPress in Spanish. </p>
<p> Not even I thought that the blog would last so long, because the experience of this type of thematic and technical websites is what I said, but here I am, and I keep trying. </p>
<p> This year has been special for several reasons, and the main one is the publication of the book on <a title= WordPress "The Spider Web" and I'm sure that we there is much to learn, enjoy and thrive with WordPress, the world's leading web authoring, publishing and management system.

As always, here are some vital WordPress Help statistics:

  • This year we changed the helpwordpress domain .com to It was done well but something is always lost along the way, like Alexa ranking points and things like that. The important thing is that readers were not lost, which is the important thing.
  • In spite of the above, WordPress Help is the web in the position 626 of all the sites in Spain and the 16,846 in the whole world , what is not bad.
  • What has been noticed is the slump in subscriptions by RSS, a standard in clear disuse since Google stopped betting on it, let alone since the reading was set to through readers like Feedly, Flipboard and similar, especially on tablets and mobile phones. Right now there are 2,777 faithful readers by RSS who continue to receive the information in the best possible way.
  • The job seeker for WordPress experts was consolidated
  • . continue to rise are the subscribers by email no less than 7,965 readers who receive daily in their inbox what is published in WordPress Help.
  • In terms of rankings, the most important, the Google Pagerank, follows in a notorious PR 6, something only accessible to highly respected web sites, with many incoming links of quality and information that visitors value as having enough authority to be a reference in their subject matter, of which I am enormously grateful.
  • Google has no less than 46.527 pages indexed.
  • In these 7 years you have written no less than 34.626 comments.
  • Including this, there is the not inconsiderable amount of 3.547 entries
  • In the forum 15,110 debates have been created, which have received 40,545 responses from 121,297 users, of which 37,697 are subscribers to the blog, that's nothing.

Has it been missing?

Well, something that always costs me: change design . I have lacked time, as always, but I recognize that I am a little freaky for these things and I keep looking. I'm afraid that in the end I'll be determined to use the default theme, although I'd really prefer an exclusive design, perhaps to promote a good Spanish-speaking designer, so that's where the glove is.

Also, in a few days, we'll suffer a new server migration – and the fifth – to improve speed and performance, and I would like nothing more than the last.

I have nothing but words of thanks to Gigas ]because they have sponsored this blog in an impeccable way, but this costs a lot to maintain it and I do not have any money, so you have to be always looking for opportunities that, at least, do not make me lose money in the endeavor, so a few days Help WordPress will be hosted at CDmon by the way you know that it has always been one of my dearest hosting providers, and I am really delighted to be back with them. [19659003]Little more. You have already seen that this last month I have written something less than usual, mainly for workload (the one that pays the bills) but nothing will recover the rhythm and you will have your daily dose of WordPress, as in the last 7 years … and the They will come.

Thank you very much for staying there!

WPCandy for sale • WordPress Help

The other day was asking Lumbreras if WPCandy would have affected the update to WordPress 2.8 but no, it seems that the fall of the blog was because they have left the domain and the project, a real shame.

WPCandy has been up to now one of the best blogs about English-speaking WordPress, and it seems that the evil of WordPress blogs It has affected you, that kind of virus that makes blogs about this CMS end up dying after a couple of years because of the boredom of its administrators, lack of income accompanied by a huge expenditure of resources or, you know, here we have suffered the latter – remedied by the CDmon sponsorship – but we have not yet incurred the former, and I trust that I will not get caught.

But hey, well they sell WPCandy! ] and the bid starts at $ 5,000, which does not seem like an expensive price for how well positioned the blog is. They sell it with all the entries created and a lot of incoming links (many of WordPress Help), because as they say in the auction do not have time to update it for other tasks and want to sell it to someone who follows the path of the blog.

Do you dare ?, I get caught with the credit card to zero.

WordPress Help – 1 Year of Life • WordPress Help

Today marks 1 year of life WordPress Help since that December 26, 2007 in which Guillermo and a server started this task of forging a speaking WordPress community Hispanic . The goal and permanent motivation is to offer at least one trick, guide, plugin or daily theme, and also the relevant information of each day on WordPress and its entire ecosystem. I think we have achieved it and we have not fainted for a day. And, on this first anniversary, there are some things to share that are already part of the WordPress Help story :

There have been many more interesting days, but what touches are the thanks: [19659002] And I have many left, I hope you forgive me for my bad head. To all you guys Thanks!

Migrating that is gerund – Grabbing that there are curves

<p> During the weekend I go to <strong> migrate WordPress Help to a larger server </strong> (quite old), with resources – I hope – almost unlimited, if there is any, all thanks to a sponsorship offer of <a href= CDmon so that we will stop using Mediatemple for WordPress Help (not so for other sites that give me fewer headaches), and in the process we gain speed, technical support (I will not have to deal with the server anymore) and , consequently, time to publish more and better.

 server-major "title =" server-greater "width =" 460 "height =" 444 "class =" aligncenter size-full wp-image-3365 "/ > </a></p>
<p> This means that you may see strange things at some point during the weekend, or some strange temporary redirection that I will try to make short. This will also affect the <a href= Forum and the test sites we have: themes, wordpress 2.7, wordpress 2.6 and habari . The part that I think will be more complicated is that of the forum, because there I am quite green and I do not know if I will do a scam, which I hope not. In WordPress Help I'm going to take advantage of the migration to tweak the database – which I had been asking for some time -, delete plugins that we tested in their day and no longer use or are not necessary for posts, and some more than I'll tell you.

However, I will warn when we are on the new server, and from there I will ask you to send me a cable to know if everything is fine, if you have missed any comments or those things that may happen in the migrations, and more This one is of quite volume and characteristics of it. I just hope that this is the last migration (it's already the second one in less than a year), and that from now on this issue of resources will no longer be a concern and lack of sleep for me, and that WordPress Help will go as a shot, with what you all win.

Go from Blogger to WordPress! • WordPress Help

Make no mistake, Blogspot (or Blogger) is fine for some people, and may have an important role for encourage many to blog, but are you really going to have your inspiration locked up in free hosting forever? . If you want to know what it's like to have a blog, learn to keep your space on the network and avoid being blocked because you want to Google the best thing is that you raise yourself create your own blog in a WordPress in own hosting with your own domain and total freedom of publication and maintenance.

 blooger vs. wordpress

There are many differences between and and You might be tempted to just change free hosting, but this is not what we are talking about; we talk about giving " the jump ". You can do it by following the guide that published KnxDT .

If you dare, these are the steps that you will have to carry out, only once, and you will gain the freedom total that assumes your own domain and hosting …

Step 1: Buy a domain

If you do not have a domain name yet, it's time you got it. The advantages of an own domain in front of a Blogspot URL in terms of SEO are undeniable, besides that you have your own brand / name in the network. There are many registrars and you can get your domain name for less than $ 10 a year and you spend a lot more on a single Friday afternoon. Here are some recommendations:

  • GoDaddy – It is one of the most popular registrars, not only because of the prices but because of its easy to use interface. You can have a domain for $ 7 or less, depending on the offers.
  • CDmon – It's not the cheapest but in my experience it's the best. Not only do you have the advantage that it is in Spanish but also its customer service is 11 out of 10. Any questions can be solved quickly by phone or email.
  • Ferca – It is the Spanish standard, where Many of the important blogs that you read on a daily basis are hosted. It is not the cheapest but they have a bombproof service. If you know the blog of the brothers Carrero you know who are the ones who will serve you.

The price may vary from one to another but any of the above choices is a safe value.

Step 2 : Get an accommodation

What I recommend in this regard, to make things easier, is that you choose any of the above services also for your accommodation. It will facilitate the management, migration and any change you want to make. It's the easiest thing.

  • In CDmon you have the Plan X which with PHP and MySQL you get for 45 € / year
  • In Ferca is the Plan Start SQL with more than what you need, for € 99 / year
  • In GoDaddy you can choose the Economy Plan for little more than € 31 / year

To host a WordPress blog you need very little, at least to comply with this:

  1. Disk Space – With 100 Mb you will have more than enough unless it is a fotolog or publish podcast.
  2. Transfer Rate – You can start with 1 Gb to expand "instantly" as you need more when your blog becomes popular.
  3. PHP and MySQL – It is essential to host the database of WordPress. You only need a database even if you host several blogs, but it is important that the versions of both softwares are better updated.

Step 3: Point your new domain to the hosting account

Once you have purchased your domain and hosting you have to " point" the domain name to the hosting account . To do this, in your hosting you will have the DNS in the control panel. You just have to write them down and direct your domain there. If you opted for the same service for the domain and accommodation it will be much easier or you can even ask for it to be configured for you. It takes a few hours to be available, and in this period of time you will usually see a temporary page provided by your hosting provider.

Step 4: Install WordPress

In this aspect I will not enter because we have already covered it extensively in ] several articles del blog . I recommend you review them.

Step 5: Import your Blogspot blog

Well, now what you have is an empty WordPress blog . But you have invested a lot of time in your old posts and you do not want to start from scratch, I understand. Then you will have to import your blog from Blogspot to WordPress . Fortunately WordPress has a special function for it, because it has options to import blogs from the main platforms, including Blogspot. To do this you must go to the WordPress admin panel and choose the tab of Manage -> Import .

Follow the import assistant and in a few minutes you will have all your old posts imported

Step 6: Final touches

Once you have the blog in the right condition, you should not lose the readers of the old one, so you have to redirect your visitors to the new blog. The first thing we will do is edit the HTML of your Blogspot template.

Add the following code to your template:

Between the tags head of the Blogger template also adds this:

Of course, you will have to replace with the new real URL.

Now prepare your new WordPress blog to accept these redirects and direct them to the corresponding posts. For this you need to create a new file in the root folder of your WordPress blog; we'll call it redirect-blogger.php . Of course, you can name it as long as it matches the URL you defined in the Blogger template.

Add the following code to this file and save it:

<? Php
require ($ _ SERVER [’DOCUMENT_ROOT’]. '/ Wp-blog-header.php');
$ search_link = $ _GET [’p'];
$ vars = explode ('/', $ search_link);
$ num = count ($ vars) - 1;
$ filename = $ vars [$num];
$ slug = str_replace (". html", "", $ filename);
$ SQL = "SELECT posts. * FROM $ wpdb-> posts AS posts WHERE posts.post_name = '$ slug' LIMIT 1?;
$ posts = $ wpdb-> get_results ("$ SQL");
if ($ posts) {
foreach ($ posts as $ post) {
$ found_link = get_permalink ($ post-> ID);
$ found_link = "http : // ";

Redirecting ...
