How to Import .docx document to WordPress

               

It is quite natural for people to prefer writing in Microsoft word as they are so used to it and it is so much more convenient. This is exactly why many people prefer to import the .docx files to the WordPress instead of typing the whole article in WordPress. It is always easier to import rather than copying and pasting the articles as things may go wrong easily. The formatting becomes an issue and the post starts to look like a mess. The whole thing may seem simple but it is actually a challenge to import the documents in WordPress properly. In this article we will discuss in details how exactly you can import the .docx document in WordPress. We will try to cover all the aspects and we hope that you will find the article informative.

When and why do you actually need to import the .docx file in WordPress?

First let us try to understand why you need to import the .docx files into WordPress. Many WordPress users actually prefer to write the articles in Microsoft Word as there are many features in Microsoft word that can help in writing an article. For example you have a Spell check, there are templates that can be used. You can also refer to the various styles and formatting that in Microsoft Word. If you look at WordPress you will notice that it does not come with these amazing features. It just has a default visual editor.

Another reason why you may need to import the .docx files to WordPress as you might be getting a lot of guest writers to write for your site and you might not be comfortable giving the access of the site to these authors. You might ask the guest writers to write their articles in Microsoft Word and you will just be uploading them on your site. These writers can submit the writings in html format too.

Many WordPress site owners have the habit of writing whenever they get the time. As a result they will have a lot of word documents sometimes even multiple documents. It can be a problem to rewrite all these in WordPress as it is a time consuming job.

We will now explain in this article how you can import these .docx files in WordPress in order to ensure that you save a lot of time by ensuring that you do not have to edit and format these files. Now that you know why you will have to import the .docx files into WordPress we will move to the next section of the topic to explain how you can actually import these docx files following a step by step method.

Importing the .docx documents into WordPress

To do this the first thing that you will need is to install and activate the plugin that is called the Mammoth.docx converter in WordPress. If you are not sure about how the Mammoth.docx converter can be installed and activated you can refer to our previous article that will give you a detailed guide on how the Mammoth.docx converter plugin can be installed and activated. Once you are done with the activation of the Mammoth.docx converter you can move in to the next step. Once you have activated the Mammoth.docx converter you will need to create a new post or you can also edit a post that already exists. On the edit screen of the post you will be able to see the Mammoth.docx converter metabox below the post editor. We are enclosing a screenshot to explain how this Mammoth.docx converter metabox actually looks like.

After you reach this step you will simply have to the file button and select the .docx file that you can find in your computer that you have already created and saved. As soon as the .docx file is selected you will notice that the plugin will show the three views for the document.

If you click on the visual tab you will be able to see how the document will look in WordPress. We are enclosing a screenshot to give the users as idea about how the three views will look like.

 

As you can see you it will ignore the styles that are already applied to the .docx documents which include the padding, margins, background color and text color. It will use the stylesheet of the theme to control the display of these things.

There is also an option to check the html that is generated by the converter. This can be done by clicking on the Raw HTML button. Here we must mention that you can also click on the messages button and see if there are any warnings or errors noted in the conversion. Do not be in a hurry to publish the document first be assured that you are happy with the way the document is looking and only then post it on WordPress. After you are satisfied with the look of the document in the visual tab you can go ahead and click on the “insert into editor” button as soon as you do that the plugin will insert the HTML into the WordPress post editor.

We hope that you are clear with the steps so far. You can continue to work on the post from time to time and keep adding or removing stuff.

So you have understood how the Mammoth.docx converter plugin actually works. We will now explain how the Mammoth.docx converter plugin can also convert a .docx file into a clean HTML format that is compatible with the WordPress site. The Mammoth.docx converter plugin also supports many other features that we will be discussing now:

  1. Lists
  2. The tables can be imported without formatting the cell colors and the like border.
  3. Links
  4. Headings like the heading 1 and heading 3 are converted into h1 and h3.
  5. The textboxes are converted into plain paragraphs.
  6. The images that are embedded in the document are imported into WordPress.
  7. Plain HTML formatting like subscript, superscript, bold and italic.

The Mammoth.docx plugin will not make any changes to the original .docx document it will also not store the document in the WordPress site.

Many WordPress users actually find it a challenge to import the .docx file into WordPress. We hope that after reading this article you will be able to import the .docx files in a more professional manner.

 

How to Stop Storing IP Address in WordPress Comments

 

How to Stop Storing IP Address in WordPress Comments

How to ensure that IP address is not stored in the WordPress comments

 

                   

It is a common question among the WordPress users if the IP address can be stopped from being stored in the WordPress comments. Many WordPress site owners actually want to do this so that they can ensure that the privacy of their users can be protected. In this article we will exactly discuss this that how you can ensure that the IP address is not stored in the WordPress comments as a result the privacy of the users can be protected. We hope that you will find this article informative.

 

Pros and cons of not storing the IP address in the WordPress comments

We all know that it is a default setup in WordPress that ensures that the IP address of those who are visiting the site and giving comments is stored in the database of the site. It also ensures that these IP addresses are actually stored permanently. The question arises why does WordPress ensure that these IP addresses are stored? Well the answer is simple. It is basically done to ensure that site owners can deal with the comments and that are spam are not wanted. There are some plugins like the Akismet that can actually successfully block the comments from the IP address as these IP addresses can be used by those who intend to do a spam for wrong purpose.

Until and unless the users are using the VPN service the real IP addresses can still be found in the logs of your site. Here we must mention that most of the WordPress hosting providers ensure that they keep an access log of all visitors who are visiting the website for a certain period of time.

We hope that by now you have got a clear idea on how storing the IP address of the users in the WordPress comments can help you as well as your site. We will now explain the other aspect of the issue. What happens if you are not storing the IP address in the comments? When you do this you are basically keeping the users first and ensuring that the privacy of the users is protected. Many users prefer that their IP address is not stored in the site and their privacy is protected. They feel more confident to express their view in such sites and they are willing to come back to such sites. Many users actually look for sites that will not store the IP address.

Now that you know the pros and cons of ensuring that the IP address is not being stored in the WordPress comment we can move on to the next part of the article where we will explain how you can ensure that the IP addresses are not stored. There are two methods that you can implement in order to do this and they are:

  1. With the help of a WordPress plugin you can ensure that the IP address is not stored in the comments.
  2. Manually stop storing the IP address in the WordPress comments.

 

Method 1: With the help of a WordPress plugin you can ensure that the IP address is not stored in the commentsWe will suggest that this is an easier method and we recommend it to all those who are new to the WordPress. To do this the WordPress plugin that you will need is called the Remove IP plugin. Once you get the plugin just follow the step by step methods we have mentioned on installing and activating WordPress plugins in one of our previous articles.

After the WordPress Remove IP plugin has been installed and activated you will notice that the plugin will replace your site users IP address with 127.0.0.1 this is an IP address that is usually used by the localhost.

One point that you must be told about the Remove IP plugin is that it will not be able to delete the IP addresses that are stored in the older comments. If you have older comments that have the IP addresses stored in them then you will have to delete them using a different method and we will be explaining how to do that later in this article. As of now we are moving to the second method that involves deleting the IP addresses manually.

 

 

            Method 2: Manually stop storing the IP address in the WordPress comments This is a more complicated method and we will recommend it to only those who have a good knowledge of the codes that you use in WordPress. What you will have to do is add the enclosed code that we are attaching to the theme’s function.php file or to the site specific plugin.

 

If you look at the code closely you will notice that it is very similar to the code that is used by the plugin that we have mentioned in the first method. However, the difference is that instead of storing 127.0.0.1 in the IP field it will leave the IP field as blank.

 

How to remove the IP address from the old comments

No matter which of the above two method you use to delete the IP address from the comments the fact remains that both the methods will not delete the IP address from the comments that have been already posted in the WordPress site. If you want to delete the IP address from the old comments then you will have to follow the method that we are about to discuss now.

You will have to run a MySql query on the WordPress database. Before you do that ensure that you do have the latest WordPress database backup. After that you will have to login to the WordPress hosting control panel and look for phpMyAdmin.

 

Once you have done that you will have to choose the WordPress database of yours by clicking on the database name in the column that you will find in the left hand side. In the next step you will have to click on the SQL menu as shown in the screenshot that we have attached below.

Once you have done this you will be taken to the text area where you will have to enter the query that we have enclosed below.

After that you will have to enter the “go” button that you will find in the text area in order to run the query. Once you do this all the IP addresses that are stored with the comments in your site’s database will be deleted. One point that we must mention here is that if you have a custom WordPress database prefix then you will have to adjust the WP_comments to the custom table prefix of yours.

 

Actually speaking there is a lot that you can actually do with the WordPress sites. We hope that after reading this article you will be able to get a better idea about how you can ensure that the IP address is not stored in the comments that are posted in your WordPress site. This can ensure that the users who are coming to your site enjoy a better experience and they keep coming back. After all we want that the people who are regularly coming to our site keep coming and keep posting their valuable feedbacks and comments on our posts.

 

How to Setup Email notifications for WordPress updates

 

How to Setup Email notifications for WordPress updates

 

     

The WordPress site must be kept up to date in order to ensure that the site is kept secured. Many users of WordPress often want to know if it is possible to get email notification for the WordPress updates. In this article we will try to resolve all the queries regarding email notification for the WordPress updates. It is a default setting for WordPress that it will show you update notifications only when you login to the admin area. However, there is a way you can set email notification for the WordPress updates and that is exactly what we will be discussing in this article we hope that this article will help you to resolve all the queries that you have regarding getting email notifications in WordPress.

When and why do you need Email notifications for the WordPress updates?

As soon as you login to your WordPress site you can see that the admin area will show some update notifications. The updates will be highlighted for the core updates and the plugins. The theme updates are however visible only on the theme pages or they can also be visible on the update page. We hope you are getting what we mean. Suppose we take a scenario that you have a WordPress site but due to some reasons you have not been able to visit the site regularly as a result you will not know when there will be a need to install an update. In order to get these update notifications you will have to set an email notification. In this article we will explain how you can actually do this.

            

 

One simple way to deal with this problem of not getting notifications if you are not logging in is by setting up an automatic updates for the WordPress core, theme and plugins. With this you can ensure that the WordPress site can manage the update on its own and automatically.

There is one more way by which you can manage the updates and that is by setting up of email notification systems for each of the updates. What happens with this is that each time there is an update to the WordPress plugin, core or the theme you will immediately get an email alert. After you have got the email alert you can install the update and login to your website. Now that you understand why exactly you need an email notification to work on your WordPress site we will move on to discuss how exactly you can ensure that the email notifications are sent when an update happens in the WordPress site.

How to set up email notifications for the WordPress updates

To do this you will first have to install and activate the WordPress plugin called “WP updates notifier”. If you are new to WordPress and do not know how to install the plugin then you can check our article on how to install WordPress plugins to get a step by step guide on installing the various plugins. After you have installed the “WP updates notifier” plugin you will have to go to the settings page and then the updates notifier page and configure the plugin settings. We are enclosing a screenshot to explain how the plugin setting must be for the “WP updates notifier” plugin to work properly.

What exactly you have to do in the setting is you will have to select the corn method. You will notice that the default setting is WordPress and you will not have to change it as long as you have a reason for changing it and you know what you are doing exactly.

After you are done with this selection you will have to select how often you actually want to check for updates. Here again you will notice that the default setting is once an hour and that is good enough if you want you can change it to once or twice a day as you think is required for you.

After you are done with all these settings you will have to enter the email address to which you actually want the notifications to come. You will see that the default email address that you have given in your WordPress settings is being reflected here. You can change this email address if you want to. You can also chose to go for multiple email addresses and each email address can be separated by a comma.

With the help of the “WP updates notifier” plugin you can also get updates about plugins and themes. All that you will have to do is select the “yes” next to the theme and plugin update notifications.

The most important thing that you will have to keep in mind here is that once you are done with the changes you will have to choose the “save settings with test email option” if you do not choose this the plugin will not store the changes and you will have to do the same steps again. Once the settings are stored the “WP updates notifier” plugin is made in such a way that it will send a test email to the email id or ids that you have given. Once you successfully get this mail the process is complete.

This is all that you need to understand about getting email notifications using WordPress. We hope that this article will help you to ensure that you WordPress site are working well and as per your requirements.

How to Create a Multilingual WordPress site with WPML

 

Creating a multilingual WordPress Site with WPML

                   

A latest study shows that most of the sites use English as the primary language and there is a huge scope for other languages. This is exactly why many site owners and bloggers are working on building sites in languages other than English. Using WordPress you can actually build sites in many languages. The WordPress does not come with a default setting to use multiple languages this is why we are writing this article so that the readers get to know how exactly they can develop their WordPress sites in many different languages. To do this you will have to use the WPML plugin.

Why do you need to create a multilingual site in WordPress?

Many users may feel why they need to create a site in different languages apart from English. After all most of the people using the internet understand English and they want to see articles in English only. This is not exactly true there is a huge demand for sites and articles in languages apart from English. There are many countries that still do not use and teach English as an official language.

As a WordPress user you must know that WordPress allows you to use any language that you want to develop your sites. It is very easy to create multi lingual websites using WordPress. You must also be aware of the fact that WordPress is translation ready and it can easily translate the language used to build the site.

No matter what but WordPress can support only one language at a time as a default setting. If you want to use multiple languages so that you can get more and more readers to your site then you will have to use the WPML plugin. Many government sites, educational institutes and organisations doing international business have to develop a site that can use multiple languages at the same time because these institutes are catering to the needs of people across the world. Google translate is available but most professional organisations do not accept it as they find it incompetent on many levels.

If you want to offer multiple languages on your WordPress site then you can choose the option of installing WordPress in subdomains in each language. It sounds good but if you want to do it practically you will realise that it can be quite a challenge. You will have to manage the updates and backup all these installations done for each language.

This is exactly why WordPress has come up with a very good solution called the WPML (WordPress multilingual plugin) it can help the users to build WordPress sites in multiple languages and in no time. With this you will just need to use the same WordPress installation to build site in different languages.

When you start using WPML you will realise how well it can support different languages. It can also offer easy interface for managing all the translations. It will also let you add the language switching option so that the users can change the language preference.

So now that you know what WPML is and how you can use it in your sites we will move on to the next topic on how exactly you can use WPML and build WordPress sites in how many ever languages that you want.

How to create a multilingual WordPress site with the help of WPML plugin

The first step will be to download the WPML plugin. We have explained in our previous articles on how exactly you can download and install the WordPress plugins. Please follow the same steps and once you have activated the WPML plugin successfully you can move to the next step.

We must mention here that WordPress multilingual plugin is a paid plugin and it is worth the payment that you will be making. Many WordPress sites from across the world are using this very helpful and simple  to use plugin in order to create sites on multiple languages and we definitely recommend the WordPress multilingual plugin to all the WordPress users who need to create sites in multiple languages.

Once you have activated the WordPress multilingual plugin you will see a WPML labelled item appearing in the WordPress menu. Once you click on it you will get the plugin’s settings wizard that will look like what we have enclosed in the screenshot attached below. As you can see WPML will automatically choose English as the default language. You can however change the language preference if you want to else leave it as it is. After that you will have to click on the next button at the end of the page and you will be moving to the next step in the process.

With this you will come to the next screen that will appear somewhat like the screenshot that we have attached below. Here you will be asked to select all the languages that you want the site to support. Just tick the box and select the languages that you need. There is actually no limit to the number of languages that you can choose. If you have selected something by mistake just untick the button to remove it from the options. Even later you can come back and change the languages that you have selected. Once you are done with the selection just click on the next button and you are good to move to the next step.

You will be asked in the next step to choose the language switcher option. This option will ensure that the users can select a language that they want in order to view the site in the language that they prefer. If you select this option WPML will ensure that the content switcher appears in the sidebar widget or it can also appear in the navigation menu. You can also opt to display it as a plain list. Apart from this you can also choose to select text or flags for the language switcher. After you have made the choice you will just have to click on the next button.

After you have made all the changes that we are said above you will be asked to enter the site key and this will be the last step. In case you do not have the key just click on the “generate key for this site” button as shown in the screenshot attached below and the key will be generated for you.

After you are done with all this you will be taken to the WPML website. Here you will be asked to add the site that you are coming from to the WPML account. After you have added the site you can just click on it and get the site key. All that you will have to do is copy paste the key into the WordPress site. With this you have successfully finished the setting up of the WPML wizard. All that you have to do now is click on the “finish button” and you can exit the setup.

Adding Multilingual content into the WordPress site with WPML

With the help of the WPML you can easily translate every area of the WordPress site into different languages. Not only that you can easily translate the WordPress pages, posts, tags, categories and even themes into as many languages as you like.

How can you add multilingual pages and posts

You can check the posts that already exist by clicking on the posts menu. This will ensure that you get to see the language column next to the post titles. We are enclosing a screenshot to explain it.

 

We will now explain a little about how exactly WPML works. It simply assumes that the existing content that you have in your site is in the primary language. That is exactly why it will show add buttons for each and every language next to your post. All that you will have to do is just click on the add button that you can see under a language to translate the post. Sometimes you may have to translate the post in a different language by editing the post.

To manage the translations you will see a “language” meta box which will help you to do the job. We are enclosing a screenshot that will tell you exactly where you can find this box.

You can even add the translated content yourself and you can also add users and authors to your WordPress site and they will do the translations for you. As you start to use WPML you will slowly realise that it is also offering you better ways to manage the users who are working on translators on your site. You can also purchase the multilingual CMS plan and use the translation management module.

You must be wondering what the translation management module will actually do for you. Well the answer is that it will allow you to add users as translators irrespective of what role they have to play on your WordPress site. You can also add subscribers as translators.

Instead of editing the posts these translators can be added to the translations directly in WPML.

Adding translations for tags and categories

WPML will allow you to easily translate all the tags and the categories. It will also allow you to translate any other custom taxonomies that you have been using. To get this done you will have to visit the WPML page and then go to taxonomy translation and load the custom taxonomies that you actually want to translate.

It might be a little confusing so we are including a screenshot so that the readers can understand better what we are trying to say. In this particular screenshot we have selected categories and then displayed all the categories from the example site. All that you will have to do is click on the add button that you can see next to the taxonomy term and add the translation.

How can you translate the navigation menus ?

We will now move to the next topic on translation. WordPress has a very robust navigation menu system. With the help of WPML you can translate it exactly how you have been translating posts and taxonomies. To do this you will have to visit Appearance page and then go to Menu page on you site. It is possible that you actually have more than one menu if that is the case then just choose the menu you want to translate. Here you will see that in the right hand column there is the menu and the links that can be translated to other languages enabled already.

As soon as you click on the language you will get to create a new menu for that particular language. Also remember that you will have to add the same menu items as your primary language menu. The enclosed screenshot will explain this to you.

We hope that things are clear so far. If you are getting confused take it slowly and concentrate on one step at a time. The point to keep in mind here is that if you have pages and posts in navigation menu then you will first have to add them and only then you can translate them. You can add them from the tabs on the left side of the edit menu screen. As always do click on the save button to ensure that the changes are saved.

With the help of WPML you can also translate themes, plugins and other texts

With the help of WPML multilingual CMS you can choose between official translation themes and plugins or you can also use its string translator. What you will have to do is just go to WPML and then go to themes and plugins localization page. You will notice that by default “don’t use string translation to translate plugins” will be checked. Just below it you will also see a checkbox that will tell you how to automatically load the theme’s .mo file using the load_theme_textdomain. When you click on this box you will see if there are any translation files that are available for your theme. However, the point to keep in mind here is that this will work only for the themes that are downloaded from the WordPress.org theme director. This will mostly not work well with majority of the WordPress site so do try to use WPML’s string translation module only.

 

We have tried to explain in a step by step method how exactly you can build WordPress in multiple languages. We hope that you found this article informative and it will help you to build a site for your readers in multiple languages.

 

How to Add WordPress Navigation Menu in pages/posts

 

Adding WordPress Navigation Menu in pages/posts

            

In this article we will discuss how you can display the WordPress navigation menu in your posts and pages. If you are using WordPress for a while you will know that the WordPress theme itself handles how the navigation menu will be displayed on your site. We will explain about the navigation menu and how buy using it you can control here the navigation menu will appear in your site or post.

Why is there a need to add WordPress navigation menu to your posts?

One question that is common among the WordPress users is why should they add a navigation menu? WordPress already has a navigation menu in a structured form and it can be added to your site. You can create these navigation menus the way you want and display them in your site at the places where you want them to appear in the WordPress admin area. There is a restriction here and that is you can display them only in the menu locations that is available in your WordPress theme.

Let’s look at a scenario suppose you needed to add a menu is a page or a post in that case what do you do? If this is required you will have to manually create a list of all the links and this will not be an easy task and will take a lot of time.

We will now discuss how you can actually add navigation menus in the WordPress pages and posts. There are some video tutorials in this subject that you can refer to. However, you may find it confusing so we are explaining the steps one by one so that you find it easy to follow.

Adding navigation menu in WordPress

You must be aware of one thing here and that is like all other functions of WordPress even in this case you will have to install and activate the Shortcode menu plugin. In one of our previous articles we have explained in details how the WordPress plugins can be installed and activated. Please refer to that article and install the Shortcode menu plugin. Once you have activated the Shortcode menu plugin you will have to go to the appearance page and then you will have to go to menu. Here you will have to create the navigation menu.

After the menu is ready you will have to click on the shortcode menu that you can find in the WordPress admin bar. This step will take you to the shortcode generator page. We are enclosing a screenshot of this page so that you get a better idea of what we are trying to say.

Here you will have to select the menu that you want to add from the select menu drop down list. You can even add a class attribute and an ID to the menu. After you are done with this step you can move to the next step and that is selecting the style in which you want the navigation menu to appear. It is a default setting that the menu will appear in a block. If you want you can change the style to an inline format or a horizontal line format as you want.

Not only the format but even the colours can be changed. To do this you will have to go to the “design your menu on the fly” section. Here the plugin will allow you to choose the anchor colours, the background and the hover. After this you will have to go to the bottom of the shortcode generator column and you will get to see the shortcode with the option that you have selected above. All that you will have to do is copy the shortcode and paste it on the page, post or the widget wherever you want the navigation menu to be displayed. We are enclosing a screenshot so that you get a better idea of what we are trying to say.

The plugin has many other features too. It will help you to add some basic style to ensure that the menu looks more presentable. There may be a need for you to customise the appearance of the menu if you want to do that then you will have to use a CSS file.

With this we come to the second column in the plugin’s setting page. Here you will find a CSS snippet. This can be used as the starting point by ensuring that you add this to your child theme’s stylesheet or you can also use the simple custom CSS plugin.

However, it is quite possible that you are not familiar with the CSS in that case you can also try to use the CSS Hero. This is again a very powerful plugin that will help you to style anything on your WordPress site this you can do by using a simple user interface and you will not even need to write a single line of code.

This is all that we have to tell you about adding the navigation menu in the WordPress pages or sites. We hope that it will help you understand why you need to add navigation menus and how exactly you can add navigation menus to your WordPress sites. We have tried to keep the explanation simple and in a step by step manner so that the users do not get confused.

Many WordPress users often get confused on how exactly they should create a Multi-page form. It is very simple actually to create the multi-page form and with this article you will realise it more.

Why do you even need a multi-page form?

The common question that a user will often ask is why do you need a multi-page form? Well the answer is simple. These forms are the easiest way perhaps to collect the information about the users and stay in touch with the users too. There can be different types of multi-page form and they are simple survey type form, email capture form and even contact form.

The multi-page form does have a lot of usage but you must have one point in mind and that is. If your multi page form is too long then the users might prefer for to fill them and leave them incomplete. How do you deal with this problem that is actually very common? Well the solution is simple you will have to break down the multi-page form into many pages or sections that will make the user not realise that how long the multi-page form actually is.

            

If you put a progress bar on top and you have a few number of fields to update the users will feel more comfortable as they fill the form. This will also ensure that the user gets a better experience that is more engaging and interacting. We will now discuss in details how exactly you can create a multi-page form in WordPress by just following the below mentioned simple steps.

Creating a multi-page form in WordPress with the help of WPForms

We will be explaining how you can create the multi-page forms in WordPress by using the WPForms. It is a very simple contact form plugin that you can easily download and start using in WordPress. It is very useful if you are new to the WordPress and you can easily use it. To use this first thing you will need is a basic license that will cost you around $39.

For those who are beginners in WordPress there is also a coupon code that can be used and this coupon code is WPB10. With this you can get 10% discount on the purchase of any WPForms plan. Installing the WPForms plugin is the first step. In one of our previous articles we have explained in details how exactly you can download and install the WordPress plugins. Please refer to those steps and install as well as activate the WPForms plugin. When you are done with that you will get a license key. This key you can get once you sign in to your account using the WPForms website.

Take the license key that will be generated and then visit the WPForms page and then go to settings page on the WordPress site. All that you will have to do is paste the license key and then you will have to click on the “verify key” button. We are enclosing a screenshot that will explain the step in a better way to the readers.

After you have verified the license key of yours you are now ready to create a multi-page form in WordPress. To do this you will have to quickly move to the next step and in this step you will have to go to the WPForms page and then click on Add new page. This will take you to the form builder that will look something like the screenshot that we have enclosed below.

You will have to provide a title for the form and then you will have to select the templates that are show in the screenshot that we have enclosed. The WPForms does offer many readymade forms that will speed up the process of the form creation. All that you have to do is select a form that according to you suit your need the best or else you can also go for a blank form. As you click on the template the form editor will be launched as shown below.

 

You will simply have to click on the fields from the left column and add them to the form that you are making. After you are done with all this you will have to click on the fields that you have added to the form and edit them the way you want. There is also an option of dragging and dropping the form fields.

I hope you have got what we are trying to say so far. Now we will move on to the next step. After you are done with adding a few form fields you are all set to add a new page to the form. You will notice that there is a pagebreak field that you can see under the fancy fields section from the left column. We are enclosing a screenshot that will explain to you how you can go about doing this.

Once you are done with these steps you will notice that WPForms will add a page break marker to the bottom and it will also add a first page marker to the top of the page. As soon as you click on the submit button on the first page you will notice that name of the button on the first page changes from submit to next.

Now you are all set to click on the first page marker that you can see at the top of the page and this will help you to edit the multi-page form properties. In the left hand column you will notice that you can choose a progress bar type. The WPForms will automatically allow you to use simple progress bar, connector, circles and no progress indicators also.

In this article we will be making use of the connectors as the progress bar. Here we must say that you can even choose the colour of the page indicator. You can also provide a suitable title to the first page.

In the next step you will have to click on the pagebreak marker if you want to edit the properties. You can also provide a title for the next page. There is also a possibility to edit the text and display on the next button. We hope that the enclosed screenshot will help you to understand what you are trying to say.

A point that you must keep in mind is that you can continue to add the form fields even after the pagebreak has been applied. The PRO version of the WPForms has an additional advantage. If you are using this you can also use the conditional logic to show and hide the form fields as per the response from the users.

Once you have added some more fields it is completely up to you to add more page breaks if you feel that it is needed. After you have done all that we have mentioned in the above steps and you feel that the form is ready you must not forget to click on the save button that you will find on the top right corner of the screen. So with this you can pat yourself on your back because you have actually created the first multi-page form.

Adding multi page form into the WordPress page or post

We will now discuss how exactly you can add the multi-page form that you have created into a WordPress page or post. With the help of WPForms you can do this and it makes it very simple actually. You can either create a new post or you can also edit an existing post. On the top of the post editor you will notice a button that says “add form”. It will look something like what is shown in the screenshot attached below.

As soon as you click on the “add form” button you will be get a popup. In the popup you will have to select the form that will appear in the drop down list and then you will have to click on the “add form” button at the extreme right bottom of the popup page. We are enclosing a screenshot so that you get a better idea about this step.

 

You will also notice that WPForms shortcode is now added into the page or the post. Once you are done with this you will be in a position to save or publish the post or the page. Now as the final step you can visit the website of yours and check for yourself how the multi-page form actually looks.

We hope that after reading this article you will be able to understand well how the multi-page forms can be created and how they can help you to improve the performance of the WordPress site.

 

How to show content only to the RSS subscribers in WordPress

 

How to show content only to the RSS subscribers in WordPress

Sometimes the WordPress site owners want to ensure that the content is visible only to the RSS subscribers. If you do that you can ensure that more users subscribe to your RSS feed then you will need this article. With the help of this the RSS subscribers to your WordPress site will get more benefits and you will be able to capitalise on this. Many WordPress users actually do not know that this can be done and some feel that doing it is actually very difficult. Well that is not true it can be done easily and by anyone. Just that you will have to keep a few points in mind and you will have to follow the steps that we are about to mention.

Why do you need feed only content in WordPress?

We all know that if a user wants to get updates from your site then the best way they can do it is by signing up for the email list of yours. There is another way they can get updates and that is by subscribing to the RSS feed. The WordPress posts can be sent to the email list subscribers by using many email services like the MailChimp, Aweber and the list just goes on. We have already discussed about these methods in our previous articles. You must have noticed that it is not very easy to convince the users about subscribing to the RSS feed of a website that is quite new. To ensure that the new websites also get RSS subscribers the site owners use a tactic that is called the “content upgrades”. If you want you can also use the same strategy or you can look at some other ways. One such way is offering bonus content to the users. This will encourage them to subscribe to the RSS feeds of a new website.

We would recommend that you combine this tactic of giving away bonus contents with popular lead generation tools like OptinMonster. When you do that more and more subscribers will get attracted to your site. We are enclosing a screenshot that will help you get a better idea of what we are trying to say.

Now that you understand well why you need to ensure that the content of your site is available only to those who are subscribing to the RSS feeds we will move to the next part of the article that will explain how you can actually get this done. There are two methods that you can basically use to do this. One method is by using a WordPress plugin and the second method is by using a code. We will be discussing both the methods in detail now in this article so that the readers get a better idea of what we are trying to say.

Method 1: Adding a feed only content with the help of a plugin

The first method that we will be discussing that you can follow to ensure that the content is available only to those who are subscribing to the RSS feeds in your site involves the use of a plugin. We put this as the first method because it is easy to use and even those who are new to WordPress can actually use it. If you are a beginner with WordPress then this is all that you need. The plugin that you will need for this purpose is called the WP Kill in feed. This plugin has to be installed and activated first. If you are new to WordPress then you might not know how to install the WordPress plugins. If that is the case you can go to our article on how to install plugins in WordPress and you will get a step by step guide about how you can go about installing the plugin. Once the plugin has been activated it will ensure that two new shortcodes are available for you to use.

Getting two shortcodes might be a little confusing that is why we will explain how you can use these shortcodes. The first shortcode is called “addtofeed”. This will allow you to add a feed only content that is wrapped in the shortcode itself. The enclosed screenshot will help you to understand what we are trying to say.

[addtofeed]

This content is for RSS feed subscribers only

[/addtofeed]

 

Between the shortcodes you can actually add any content that you want like a text, images, YouTube Videos and the list just goes on. When this is done it will ensure that the content will be visible only in the users who are subscribing to the RSS feed and the regular users who are just visiting the site will not be able to see them. Nevertheless, you must educate the regular users about this and tell them that there is more content that is available only to the RSS feed subscribers and if they want to see these content then they will have to subscribe to the RSS feed. Here you can also mention the link that will take them to the RSS feed subscription page. Unless you educate the users they will not know about the RSS feed.

Hiding the content from the RSS Feed subscribers

The WP Kill in feed plugin will also help you to ensure that some content is actually hidden from the RSS feed subscribers and these will be available only to those who are generally visiting the website. To do this you will have to wrap the content within two shortcodes and they are [killinfeed] and [/killinfeed] shortcodes. This will ensure that the content will not be visible to the feed subscribers. This can be done in the following manner:

[killinfeed] content hidden from RSS feed subscribers [/killinfeed]

We hope that the first method is clear to the users. We will now move to the second method.

Method 2: Using a code to ensure that the content is available only to the RSS feed subscribers

In the second method you will not have to use a plugin instead you will have to use a code and this can be a little confusing to those who are new to WordPress. This is why we are not suggesting that this method to be used by beginners. This method must be used only by those users who have been using WordPress for some time.

In this method you will have to add a code to the WordPress site as the name itself clearly indicates. This must be tried only by those who are good with coding in WordPress. You will have to add this code as we have mentioned below to the theme’s function.php file or you can add it to the site-specific plugin.

If you look closely you will realise that the code is actually very similar to the plugin that we have discussed in the first method. The code basically checks if the user has requested for a feed and then it will add feed only content to the post content. If not then it will simply skip the feed only content.

There is a shortcode that you will have to use in order to wrap the feed only content and the shortcode is written something like how we have mentioned below:

[feedonly] This content will only be visible to the RSS feed subscribers [/feedonly]

This will ensure that the content that is mentioned within the shortcode will only be visible to the subscribers. Here again you will have to keep  in mind that you do inform the visitors coming to the site that there are some additional content available in your site that will be shown only  to those who have subscribed to the RSS feeds. This will ensure that if these visitors want to see more content they can subscribe to the RSS feed.

 

These are some steps and methods that you can follow in order to ensure that some content of the site is available only to the RSS subscribers. We hope that the WordPress users will actually find this information useful and it will help them to develop the site in a better way.

The point is the more popular a plugin is the more frequently it will get updated. We are enclosing a screenshot to show how exactly an update actually happens in WordPress.

It is quite obvious that some WordPress users may find these updates annoying and they may get irritated because every time they login they will find that some or the other update is going on for either one or the other plugin. These updates can also be on for the WordPress core or the theme. The problem becomes even more serious when you have more than one WordPress sites and you see that all the sites have some or the update going on at the same time. This can be really time consuming.

So what do you think is the solution? Well what you can possibly do is ensure that you could make a setup that would ensure that all the updates in WordPress are automatically installed and you do not have to waste time.

With the help of this page you will be able to turn off the updates for the WordPress core, themes, plugins and translations. There are some default settings here that we have clearly shown in the screenshot above we recommend these default settings to all the WordPress users and site owners.

Many WordPress users often turn off the updates that are happening on the plugins, WordPress core and the themes. We will recommend to never do this as this will seriously compromise on the security of the site and can be dangerous for the future of the site.

We hope you are with us till now. As the next step what you will have to do us go to the general tab in the plugin settings. In this page you can select if you want the access to disable or enable the WordPress updates globally or just on your site.

Ensuring that you select automatic updates only for selected themes and plugins

In this part of the article we will be discussing how you can ensure that automatic updates are applied to a few plugins and not all. To do this you will have to go to the plugin tab that you can find under the plugin setting. We are enclosing a screenshot to explain this.

 

After you have done this you will notice that you can see all the plugins that you have installed on your WordPress site. Under each of the plugin you will find a link that will enable automatic updates for that plugin. After this you will have to switch to the themes tab and you will get to see a list of the themes that you have installed on your WordPress site. We are enclosing a screenshot that will explain these screens to you in a better way.

After you are done with these steps you will have to move on to the next step and in this you will have to enable the automatic updates for the themes that you actually want to update automatically.

Is it possible to go back to the old version of the plugin or the theme after the update has already happened?

Many users of WordPress do have a genuine concern many a times it is noted that the new update in incompatible in more than one ways. This stops the users from going ahead with the update. We will now explain why you do not have to sacrifice on the updates as there is a way you can get back to the old version of the plugin or the theme if you find the new version not good enough. We will explain in details now how exactly you can do this,

You will have to install a WordPress backup solution that will ensure that will ensure that backup is created for all the plugins and themes and they are not lost after an update is done.

It is not necessary that you use this option only when you feel that an update went wrong you can actually use it even when you feel that there is some problem with the way the site is performing. Getting the data from the backup that you have created can be a lot of work but if you know that you just want to roll back the updates then the job is much easy. Rolling back the plugin and theme updates is actually quite easy and we will now in this article explain how exactly you can do this.

What you will have to do is first install and activate the WP Rollback plugin. Once you have the plugin what you will have to do is just go to the plugin page and you will notice that after the name each plugin that you installed there is an option to rollback. This was not there before you can see it now as you have installed the WP Rollback plugin.

It will look something like the enclosed screenshot.

As soon as you click on the rollback option you will notice that your plugin has gone back to the previous version that you wanted. The same method can be used to roll back the themes also.

We hope that after reading this article you will get a better idea of how exactly you can manage the automatic updates on WordPress. This will also help you understand why you need to manage the updates and how it can help you to enjoy a better control over the updates.
