  1. Ok so I know that this has changed a lot over the years. But I thought I would just see where it is now (as far as you guys know). Backlinks and reciporcal linking does still have some value right? Obviously only with related websites though. And probably best to work them in as articles or something right? Maybe on a blog page? Any good resources for places to acquire quality links? Obviously no spam ones or anything. Thanks!

    Mentoring website - what platform?

    Hi Prateeksha, Thanks for the reply. Well the world clock bit was just to indicate that the booking system would need to take into account the different time zones of mentors and students. Regarding the testimonials, it would be cool to have testimonials for the different mentors on the website. Can you recommend any wordpress themes etc that would be good starting points? Or libraries where I could browse them? I've only really used Wordpress for standard 'brochure' type websites, and all the more complex ones have been bespoke and built from scratch, so any pointers welcome here. Thanks! .gif' alt=':seas8:'>
  3. Hi all, got a potential project in the pipeline and could do with your advice. It is for a mentoring website aimed at people who want to learn permaculture reiki and other eco and new age things. I have no idea of what frameworks would work best; magneto, Wordpress or Drupel or another? Any advice welcome. Rough plan below: Mentoring Website for the New Age and Eco Communities Site Map · Home · About · How it Works · Sign Up (for both Mentors and Students) · Profiles of Mentors Teachers · Short Description, Long Description, Photos, Links, Booking Form with world clock, Costs per hour Courses, Testimonials, Documents, You Tube videos · Payment system (possibly one that allows a percentage to go to another account besides the main one) · Mailing List · Contact · Links Client Area - Content Management Systems Client area with calendar of bookings, costs, profile details Mentor Area with calendar of bookings, costs, profile details and editing abilities Web Designer Owner area with more power to adjust other areas of the site including removing profiles Mail System · Automated Mail Outs for periods of inactivity · Allows for promotions · Email lost passwords etc YouTube Interview Mentors for YouTube videos, links to and from the relevant pages on the website Testimonials from past students and clients Possibly a free introduction lesson or overview of their field of expertise
  4. Hi All, I don't usually use Wordpress and it seems that my clients website has been hacked and blacklisted by Google (see below email). Does anyone know what to do when your site is riddled with viruses/malware etc? Is there a way to recover it? The back up I have is ancient, and I am very reluctant to use it unless I have to...

    Good Responsive Gallery?

    Jack: I believe I can get to it. But isn't there any easier way? A plug in that someone recommends? Jane: Reg the Easy Fancy Box, it does not appear to be responsive: "The lightbox does not look good on mobile devices. What can I do about that? The FancyBox 1.3.4 script that is used in this plugin was not developed with mobile devices in mind. The only way around this issue is currently to disable FancyBox for small screen sizes. You can do this by adding a text widget in your sidebar with the following code snippet." https://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-fancybox/faq/

    Addthis Share button conflict with Font code

    Thanks for that Wyn, so its not the font code that is putting it in.... so why are my counters not recording properly? They are often on zero, even though I have shared pages myself and every week get an email about a couple more shares on the website.... Any ideas?

    Addthis Share button conflict with Font code

    Don't think its the CMS, as I use the same CMS on several websites. I think its something to do with the Webfont or perhaps some other bit of Analytics software. I can't seem to get rid of it though...

    Addthis Share button conflict with Font code

    Sorry put this in the wrong bit. Think it should be in the CSS/Javascript section... Can the moderators move this please?
  14. Hi All, I am doing some work on my clients website: www.mason-uk.co.uk They have their own font that they use, and I think it (or the code to do with it) adds a strange extension onto the file names in the browser, this changes each time that page loads: (it might not be this) Example: http://www.masonuk.co.uk/application.asp?pid=4#.VD_oufldXnE (the #.VD_oufldXnE is the added on bit - this is the bit that changes each time the page is loaded) Now I have been using Addthis share buttons on the website for over a year, and they get used several times a week. So I know they should be listing in the dozens or even hundreds for the main pages. But they mostly list as zero. I believe Addthis records which page has been shared by its exact web address. Herein lies the problem. The web address keeps changing due to this strange extension (which I think is to do with the font - but perhaps not). So therefore when it loads with a different extension it doesn't show in the counter the shares that have been made with other extensions Does anyone know what to do with this issue? Has anyone experienced this or something similar? How did they get around it? Is there a way to overide the web address displayed and shared? Thanks again guys Regards Rich
