  • Add custom CSS to a specific slideshow to to customize the appearance
  • Use recipes/code snippets to quickly add common CSS rules
  • Add CSS styles that change the behavior of any page that the slideshow is on. For example, if you want the header to be full width you can now add a style to take care of that

We recommend the update for all users. The full change-log is as follows

  • FEATURE: Adds ability to duplicate a slideshow
  • FEATURE: Adds toolbar with various utilities
  • FEATURE: Adds unified notification system
  • REFACTOR: Moves inline styles out of the body tag

WP-Optimize expands to a market leading 3-in-1 optimization plugin with new caching feature https://getkeyy.com/wp-optimize-expands-to-a-market-leading-3-in-1-optimization-plugin-with-new-caching-feature/ Thu, 25 Jul 2019 09:34:33 +0000 https://getkeyy.com/wp-optimize-expands-to-a-market-leading-3-in-1-optimization-plugin-with-new-caching-feature/ Continue reading ]]>

After a lot of development and hard work that has included our recent image optimization feature, we are excited to share with WP-Optimize users the latest breaking news; The all new caching feature has now been released! This new development makes WP-Optimize a market leading 3-in-1 plugin that now combines caching, database cleaning and image optimization that now all work together to help make your site run faster. WP-Optimize caching has been a highly requested feature that we have now available to both our free and premium users.. 

How does caching work?

Caching makes the most of your WordPress posts and pages by loading them as static files. When these static files are viewed by users, it reduces the amount of processing load on the web server and overload if PHP and MySQL are used. This can help improve the performance of the site and is a sure-fire way to ensure that web pages load at lightning-fast speeds.

How to use the WP-Optimize caching feature

Video walk-thru: While written instructions on how caching work can be helpful, for many users a simple walk-thru video can be a lot easier and quicker to process and understand. So be sure to check out the following video we made that takes you through the process of how to use cache. 


Setting up caching:

With WP-Optimize caching, we have specially designed the feature to give a wide range of options to the user. However, if you are the kind of person just wants to turn something on and let it run, just toggle the “enable page caching” button and we will automatically optimize all the different caching tasks for you. This feature enables users with all levels of knowledge to access the full advantages of caching.

How the caching settings appear in the plugin

If you prefer to do things yourself and dig into the finer details, you can manually setup your sites caching options yourself.

Mobile and logged in users cache

If you prefer to setup the cache yourself, there are options within the plugin that will let you manually set “mobile” and “logged in users” cache. Mobile cache enables users who access your site via a mobile or tablet to get a device specific cached version, while “logged in users cache” enables secured cached content for all of your logged in users. If you want to enable this option, just toggle the buttons to the on position. The options are just the first in an amazing long list of features that will make your site faster.   

Enable Mobile and logged in users cache

Preload options

You can further optimize your caching with scheduled preloader options. This features works by allowing the user to preload the pages of the site, further improving its performance. When combined with the other caching features within WP-Optimize, the preloader is a powerful tool that can help speed up loading times.   

Advanced settings

In the “Advanced settings” tab, you can add any URLs, cookies and user agent strings you would like excluded from the cache. These options can be a great tool and very useful as they allow you to exclude sensitive site pages from the caching engine, such as login URLs.

G-Zip compression

This option can give a huge percentage boost as part of your total savings and is a simple and effective way to save bandwidth and further speed up your site. G-Zip compression reduces the size of files sent from your server to increase the speed to which they are transferred to the users browser. Just click “enable” to activate this option.  

Static file caching

Finally, “Static file caching” lets you use HTTP response headers. Once enabled, a visitor’s browser will know if it should cache non-changing files, so it does not need to retrieve them upon every visit, further improving the loading speed of your site. Just set your expiration time and press “enable” to activate.

WP-Optimize in summary

The caching feature is the latest in a series of site optimization options that aim to make WP-Optimize your one stop shop for improving your sites speed and performance. Along with image optimization and database cleaning, the addition of caching aims to make WP-Optimize the only WordPress optimization tool you need.

UpdraftPlus release new update: Includes new empty clone install feature https://getkeyy.com/updraftplus-release-new-update-includes-new-empty-clone-install-feature/ Wed, 24 Jul 2019 11:02:16 +0000 https://getkeyy.com/updraftplus-release-new-update-includes-new-empty-clone-install-feature/ Continue reading ]]>

UpdraftPlus have now released the latest update for all our users which includes a host of features, fixes and tweak updates. As mentioned in our previous blog, this latest update includes a new feature that allows users who want to create a new clone site to use an already existing local backup (one that is not in remote storage) to create one via UpdraftClone.

This allows the whole clone creation process to be set up in a much shorter amount of time as it is not necessary to create a new backup of the site you are cloning first. This amazing new feature will still use the existing Clone token system that everyone is familiar with, so users can begin generating new blank WordPress installs straight away, without having to purchase any additional services. Once you are done with the testing of the clone, you can simply delete it and generate another one as and when it is needed.

The changelog for UpdraftPlus Free (1.16.16) and UpdraftPlus Premium (2.16.16) is as follows.

We recommend the update for all users.

1.16.16 – 2.16.16

  • FEATURE: Added the ability to launch a blank WordPress clone
  • FEATURE: Add –collate= parameter to WP-CLI (Premium) to allow substitution of locally unknown collations when restoring
  • FIX: Switched to wp_insert_site() from insert_blog() and install_blog() method when importing single-site into a multisite network on WP 5.1+. Fixes ‘Already Installed’ error when importing on newer WP versions
  • FIX: Issue where (rare) foreign key constraints aren’t updated upon restore when table prefix changes
  • FIX: Improve parsing of backed-up triggers when restoring preventing possible unnecessary errors
  • FIX: If an upload to Google Drive starts to fail due to an OAuth token refresh error, the backup will re-bootstrap the Drive client and try again
  • FIX: JSON-reparser to prevent unwanted RINFO data being output to screen
  • FIX: Triggers were still included in a backup for tables that were excluded because of lack of WP prefix
  • FIX: Resuming restores could resume at an unnecessarily early stage
  • FIX: Issue with Dropbox account information call that could make it fail
  • TWEAK: In cases where there were duplicate Google Drive folders (which is possible if there are multiple network communications failures when looking up the folder), these are now detected and merged automatically
  • TWEAK: Add option to start 250GB Vault subscription as in-app purchase
  • TWEAK: Regression: backup checksums were not being recorded in the backup log file
  • TWEAK: Remove UpdraftClone when the backup is cancelled by the user
  • TWEAK: Send the backup log during the creation of UpdraftClone for easier support when a clone fails to recieve the backup
  • TWEAK: Detect OneDrive Graph token expiries and initiate swift resumption
  • TWEAK: Reduce the permissions requested for the UpdraftPlus Google Drive app (this now means that backups manually uploaded to Google Drive can not be deleted through the UpdraftPlus UI)

Why the new WP-Optimize caching feature will not affect performance https://getkeyy.com/why-the-new-wp-optimize-caching-feature-will-not-affect-performance/ Tue, 23 Jul 2019 11:29:04 +0000 https://getkeyy.com/why-the-new-wp-optimize-caching-feature-will-not-affect-performance/ Continue reading ]]>

Following the successful launch of the all new WP-Optimize caching feature, we have received a massive amount of amazing positive feedback and reviews. However some have speculated that the optimization plugin would become bloated or buggy due to the expanded nature of it’s performance. We would like to address these concerns and prove to our loyal customers that not only is WP-Optimize now one of the market leaders in WordPress optimization, the performance and speed of WP-Optimize remain as high as ever.

We recently received the following query regarding our update:

The developers decided to fatten the already bloated plugin with page caching because apparently they prefer the ‘we-do-it-all’ approach which of course all too often results in doing nothing well.
N
o thanks.

This is a legitimate concern and we agree that it’s only worth launching something if we think it will do something at least as well as the alternatives, if not better. There’s no point launching something that’s second best – because why would anyone use it?

So we decided to build the new caching part around the best established caching engine technology we could find, and then spent a couple of years improving it! As a result, our tests of the caching part of the plugin show this rivals or beats every caching plugin currently on the market on caching alone.

Once combined with our database cleaning and image optimization features, WP-Optimize beats all the competition by some margin. In the following example, our test site (which took 4.2s to load without cache), now takes the following time compared to the alternatives when configured:

  • WP-Optimize: 1.7s
  • WP Rocket: 2.0s
  • W3 Total Cache 2.4s

The results show that a site using WP-Optimize is 15% faster than with with WP-Rocket and 30% faster than W3 Total Cache.

We also undertook further testing and comparisons with other caching plugins and have produced the following table. Users can now better understand and see the performance capabilities you can get from using WP-Optimize compared to our rivals.

Included

UpdraftPlus announces new feature to spin out empty WP installs with a couple of clicks! Perfect for testing new plugins, themes or designs… https://getkeyy.com/updraftplus-announces-new-feature-to-spin-out-empty-wp-installs-with-a-couple-of-clicks-perfect-for-testing-new-plugins-themes-or-designs/ Thu, 04 Jul 2019 10:55:29 +0000 https://getkeyy.com/updraftplus-announces-new-feature-to-spin-out-empty-wp-installs-with-a-couple-of-clicks-perfect-for-testing-new-plugins-themes-or-designs/ Continue reading ]]>

Our revolutionary UpdraftClone feature (“copy & paste your WordPress site”) has proven a massive success since the September launch. UpdraftClone allows users to clone your site to the cloud in a couple of clicks, without having to arrange new hosting.  

But today we announce you can now spin out Blank WordPress Installs with just a couple of clicks.

This new UpdraftClone feature allows you to boot empty WordPress installs from the UpdraftPlus.com clone dashboard directly.  You can now easily create an empty WordPress install on which you can test new themes/plugins/updates without the need to clone your existing site.

This new feature uses the same Clone token system as UpdraftClone, so you can now generate a new blank WP install quickly and easily without even need to enter credit card details. It’s so quick and easy and you can simply throw the clone away again once you’re done testing – you can always spin out another one when you need it.

How it works.

Once you have created an Empty Install, you now have a ‘Quick actions’ option that allows you to easily delete, reboot or access the SSH login of the Clone without having to go through multiple sub-menu options. 

Within each individual Empty Install or Clone, you can now click “Manage” and view a range of easy to use ‘actions’ where you can directly access the Database login, SSH access, PHP info, change the PHP version, reboot the clone and show SFTP access credential. 

This service is primarily designed for testing things out on a temporary throw-away site rather than long term hosting, simply because you can’t choose your own domain (yet). But should you wish to keep the site you created from the ‘Blank Install’, you can use UpdraftPlus Migrator feature to migrate it to any live site, on any domain, with any host you like.

We are sure this new update to the UpdraftClone dashboard and features will provide a useful service for those wanting to test things out quickly.  

If you’re a customer, you can sign into your UpdraftPlus.com account and check out the changes today on your UpdraftPlus.com clone dashboard.

How to use Advanced Custom Fields with WPML https://getkeyy.com/how-to-use-advanced-custom-fields-with-wpml/ Wed, 26 Jun 2019 13:27:53 +0000 https://getkeyy.com/how-to-use-advanced-custom-fields-with-wpml/ Continue reading ]]>

The Advanced Custom Fields and WPML plugins have both proven to be very popular with WordPress users. At the time of publishing this article, the WordPress plugin repository shows 1+ million active installation for the ‘Advanced Custom Fields’ plugin. For such a popular plugin, it’s seems like WPML would make it a priority to provide a compatibility bridge for users – and now they have!

With Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) users can easily add meta box(es) to a post, page, custom post type and even categories. Meta boxes can be incredibly useful when you want to show additional information regarding the resource. 

If you are building a multilingual website in WordPress, you obviously want these ACF meta boxes to work efficiently on the translated versions of your post, page, etc. In this article, we show you the steps on how to configure and use ACF with WPML, as using both plugins together makes for a great experience as it integrates with the website seamlessly.

Installation

Once you have decided on building a multilingual website with ACF, grab a copy of the following plugins and install (but don’t activate) them on your WordPress dashboard. 

The ‘Advanced Custom Fields Multilingual’ plugin can be found in the download section of your WPML account page. After you have installed all 3 plugins, activate the ACF and WPML plugins. Keep the ACF Multilingual plugin deactivated as you will need to complete setting up WPML first.

WPML setup on the WordPress dashboard

After activating the WPML plugin you will see a notice on top of the page that asks you to ‘Configure WPML’.

Press this button and it will redirect you to the WPML setup page. Here you will find the default option is set to the language you selected at the time of WordPress installation. 

For this example, it is set to ‘English’.

Press ‘Next’ once done.

In step 2, you can select your secondary language. A user can select more than one option if they intend to display their website in multiple languages. For this example, let’s say you just wanted French as a secondary language. You would tick that option from the list and press ‘Next’.

For the third step, select the default setting and press ‘Next’. 

Complete the fourth step as per the plugin instruction. 

For the final step, add your WPML registration key and press the ‘Register’ button to finish the setup.

After finishing the setup, you will be redirected to the WPML setting page. Scroll down to the ‘Language URL format’ section and choose the URL format you want. 

We recommend choosing the first option – ‘Different languages in directories’, which generates SEO-friendly URLs for translated pages.

Now go to your plugin page and activate the ‘Advanced Custom Fields Multilingual’ plugin. This plugin does not have any settings to configure and should work quietly in the background.

Advanced Custom Fields with WPML

When using Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) with WPML, you will want to show the same ACF meta boxes for both the primary and secondary languages. By doing this, it ensures a consistent functionality for both the backend and frontend. To do this, you just need to put translated content in the secondary language.

We will create a meta box for the primary language (English for this example), which causes the meta box to appear on the assigned page. 

After translating this page in our secondary language, the same meta box should now appear on the translated version of our page. 

Let’s take a look at this whole process in action…..

First, create a page called ‘About Us’ and publish this page. 

Next, head over to the ‘Custom Fields’ menu and add one meta box for the ‘About Us’ page.

Now go to the edit screen of the ‘About Us’ page, where this meta box should appear. Add some content in the ‘Our Aim’ field.

Next, you need to create the French version of this page. To do this press the ‘+’ icon under the ‘Translate’ column. This box is on right side of your edit screen.

You will now be redirected to the new page. Add the page title ‘About Us’ in French and publish the page. Reload the page and you should see your ACF meta box and also see original content of your primary language in textual format. You can now add a French translation for this content.

Note: The steps shown in this tutorial are performed on a fresh WordPress installation. If you are trying these steps on your existing site, then you might get a different result than is shown in this blog.

That’s it! You are now all set with the Advanced Custom Fields setup, with WPML functionality. 

If you have any comments or questions, we would like to hear your thoughts in the comment section below.

We hope you enjoy and make use of the additional benefits our new Gold package has to offer.

Premium Gold is available for download now.
