Some highlights:

  • It’s a plugin!
  • WP-CLI support
  • Integrated with WordPress’s user system
  • Easy installation through the WordPress.org plugin directory
  • Multisite support
  • For the first version the goal was to change as little as possible to get it working well. But still we had to remove some things in favour of WordPress’ API system. You can review the list of breaking changes in our wiki. If you have existing plugins for the standalone version take a look at this guide on how to convert them to WordPress plugins.

    wp 4.4

    WordPress released a new and exciting update. Introducing “Clifford” or WordPress 4.4!

    WebHostingWorld Loves wordpress and it’s not a secret that we love providing WordPress services to our clients. In fact, so much so that we’ve created a web hosting package designed and built for WordPress users. If you happen to be one of our clients who benefit from our Premium WordPress Hosting packages, you may have noticed a few changes on your dashboard.

    WordPress has released their latest update, nicknamed “Clifford” after the honored jazz trumpeter Clifford Brown. The update features a new theme called ‘Twenty Sixteen’ that offers a sleek and modern design with a major focus on the important part: your content.

    This update is WordPress’s response to an increasingly responsive internet. Most web users now access the web from tablets and smartphones rather than their desktop computer. This means that as a website owner it is your job to be sure that your pages look great no matter what the screen size is, and the new WordPress update aims to make that easier.

    To get a little glimpse of the great Clifford Brown click here.

    The primary purpose of the update is to make your WordPress website more responsive with easily shareable content. According to the WordPress website your content, images and links will look better on every size screen while also being more connected with your site visitors than ever before.

    ‘Twenty Sixteen’ is a simple but classic theme that will easily keep you connected with your readers with new embedded posts. By simply dropping in a URL you will instantly have the ability to preview the post, fully loaded with featured image, title and excerpt. The “Clifford” update also offers site icons that link directly back to your website. Readers will have improved access to your content, which will easily lead to your comments and more sharing!

    If you access your WordPress dashboard on a regular basis you may have noticed the update either already in effect or perhaps ready for install underneath your news column as seen below:

    Why Webhostingworld Blog hosting is best to choose

    null
    WordPress is the most popular blogging platform on the Internet and is also widely used as a common CMS. As an open source application, you can rely on a community of millions of users who can provide you with assistance to make sure that your website specifications are fully met with WordPress, even if this means tapping into third-party sources. Managed WordPress hosting aims to build on the solid foundation provided by the open source application by providing a number of exclusive features and full support that will not only help you to make the most of the application, but will provide you with the hosting environment necessary to spur on and support online growth.
    Making your WordPress site yours
    WordPress is the world’s most popular blogging platform and as a user you will have access to vast repositories of themes and plugins that have been contributed to the project by third-party developers. Whilst it may be the most popular in the world, this doesn’t mean that any two WordPress websites are the same.

    If WordPress is lacking a particular function when you first install it then you can probably find a third-party plugin that will be able to fulfill your needs.

    On the other hand, with themes, if you already have an established brand identity that follows a particular design or colour scheme then you might find it more beneficial to create your own theme. Again, the API for themes is very well documented so if you have good knowledge of HTML and CSS then it really isn’t too hard to create your own theme. Alternatively, a third-party theme can provide a shortcut to the look that you want to achieve. With some adaptations, you can always customise one of these to suit your envisaged design

    MySQL Databases Backup with WordPress

    What will happen if the server in which your blog is hosted crashes? If you are lucky you will get a backup of your database from your provider. Sometimes, the damage will be severe and you will not get a copy of your database backup.

    In order to prevent an incident as specified above, you need to capture backup of your database from time to time. It is possible to download a copy of your database backup using PhpMyAdmin, which is available with CPanel.

    However, you can also generate a backup of your database from within WordPress.

    (1) Download WP-DBManager plugin – http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-dbmanager/

    (2) Upload the folder – wp-dbmanager to wp-content/plugins folder using FTP. You can make use of FileZilla software to upload files.

    (3) Login to WordPress dahboard and activate the plugin.

    (4) You may directly search for WP-DBManager plugin from within Plugins section under WordPress dashboard.

    (5) You will view the following message soon after activation

    Your backup folder might be visible to the public

    It indicates that you have to move .htaccess file to the folder mentioned on the displayed message

    (6) You will find an entry named – Database on the left side navigation panel

    (7) You have to rectify the errors which you will see in red color before proceeding to backup the database.

    (8) The plugin will display the details of all the previous backups under Manage Backup DB page

    (9) You can also execute SQL queries by selecting Run SQL Query option

    Note that there are plenty of plugins available for database backup. However, I advise you to make use of backup utility available with CPanel so that you can avoid the need to give permissions to folders.
