Last things to do for “Good Enough For Now”
Avoid the double and triple lightboxes– DONE!
de-activate WP Ocean incorporated lightbox (how to do)
stop Simple Lightbox opening over UPG lightbox (how to)
- SEO – Yoast… ok
Europa.is 2020 Priorities
- GOOD THUMBNAILS IN SOCIAL SHARING!!
Social sharing WITH thumbnail is essential (humans are visual!)
the big thumbnail in Telegram and the ones for Watsap, FB, maybe WordPress sites?…
– WPSSO: works fantastic on Riccardo.is, totally sucks on Europa.is.
WHY? Aardvark, Youzer, WPbakery incompatible??
Seemed to work, but there were conflicts between SSO and Yoast
SSO apparently needs specific thumbnail URL defined, is not automatically Featured Image
this very page hadn’t and no thumbnails appeared
de-activated SSO – Yoast seems to do the job (now this page has thumnails!)
- Frontend User BLOG Posting
(Europa · is fundamentally about participant’s content)
including Frontend user editing and deletion
also Featured image!
– Covered with WPUF: nice! I like it – however check file size limit!! Mobile photos can be up to 4MB
User Post Gallery (UPG): maybe, but needs ‘coding’(not so good for post, for galleries great!)
AccessPress Anonymos post: no good! no editing
- Frontend user image/gallery posting:
Several user’s image(s) upload to same gallery for, for example group timelines
(pre)select Category, option of tags! (define album)
– Covered with User Post Gallery (UPG): really really nice!
unfortunately gives error on upload andduplicate thumbnails in WP medi a
maybe Aardvark, Youzer, WPbakery incompatible??
else: hope developer can solve
SOLVED changing configuration/structure – Good Enough For Now!
– rtMedia: works, kind of… – needs fixed references per album, that is: for each (album)page!
maybe can be solved with a form and category select option, tag field???
- Frontend user video (gallery)
– All In One Video Gallery: works nice! Good Enough For Now 🙂
see for example: People
Treat participants as much as possible in their own language!
(huge preference for human translation!)
- Emulate FB
For those who don’t know better… 😉
– BuddyPress, obviously
First this basic functionality, else it doesn’t even make sense to have a good working system…
Duplicator, Updraft, by server???
- Security: spam, hackers, attacks and stuff…
Akismet, Jetpack, Wordfence, Google re-captcha…. ¿?¿?¿¿
For this there are so many options, many of which I don’t (fully) understand. Some seem to overlap…
- Optimize speed
WPoptimize, Autoptimize, Smush, Jetpack (again?)
- Social share and login
for thumbnails: WPSSO, Yoast
for the rest… the whole list at WP
maybe Social Media Share and Nextend Social Login ?
- Rating & Polling
for greater user interaction and PUBLIC user statistics/graphics!
WP Rating plugins
tried: Rate my post, YASR, KK, Multirating (?), Rating-Widget (don’t remember which)
WP Poll plugins
Responsive, YOP, Opinion Stage, WP-polls, WP poll, Epoll, Poll Maker, Crowd Signal,Democracy!
Yoast, RankMath, SEO Press…
- More funcionality, using
Redirection, Visual Link Preview,
- More functionality, investigate
Events, Forms, Custom Related Post (manual!), Reusable content, Country blocker, broken links, cookies, privacy…
- User-friendly and simple
- Mobile first!! Adaptive
- Lightbox for images, galleries and videos!!
Promotion and marketing
- Preferibly good old mouth to mouth
- Social sharing and marketing, good thumbnails are essential
- SEO less priority, no products to sell
rather people entering because they KNOW, not because they search
