Should Automattic Disallow Scammy Ads (Poll)

comments 12
WordPress

The title of this post is ‘Should Automattic Disallow Scammy Ads’. Scammy is an urban dictionary word rather than something you will find in the Oxford or Webster’s Dictionaries, but I am sure you get the idea that it means anything that is and/or related to a scam. It doesn’t have to be fraudulent to the extent that it is illegal, just a crappy way of hooking gullible people into a dream that hasn’t a hope in […]

Troubleshooting plugin conflicts is fun. Yes, I know, you can’t have plugins on WordPress.com sites. That is, you can’t unless you have the Business plan (more about that another time). So this is for people who run self-hosted WordPress sites. Today I had a plugin conflict.  There. I said it. Actually, in about ten years of running self-hosted WordPress sites, this is maybe only the second time I have had a plugin conflict. So what […]

That is only for self-hosted sites or the Business plan on WP.com. The plugin is made by the people at PootlePress […]

I raised the following support ticket on WooCommerce: “I have been using Gutenberg as a plugin on a couple of sites since last January, but until now not on a WooCommerce site. I just activated Gutenberg on a WooCommerce test site and also activated the WooCommerce Gutenberg Products block plugin.

Somewhere Warm in WooCommerce

Tamara and I have a self-hosted WordPress site where we sell greeting cards. The e-commerce on the site is handled by a plugin named WooCommerce, that you may have heard of.  Recently I had an issue with an additional plugin used to make bundles of products. It is built on top of WooCommerce and it is an official WooCommerce plugin but it is not built by the WooCommerce team themselves. It is built by a third […]
