To access a path like /var/www/wordpress/ with a URI like /discover/, you will need to use alias rather than root. See this document for details.

You can't prevent WordPress from using Gravatar, but you can head over to the Gravatar site & change which email ID can use which gravatar.

In the Facebook app settings there is a switch for making the app public. Even though all my posts say they are public on Facebook, they would not show up for other people if they were published using this app (through the WordPress plugin), unless this switch is set to Yes.

Unfortunately, no, because you can only configure one WordPress blog in the WordPress channel. An alternative is to use a different channel, such as the Feed channel to pick up new posts from your other blog to send to your Blogger channel. You might be able to do what you want with another IFTTT account.

Classic Editor When working in the Classic Editor you can not by default. You will have to use some lines of custom CSS code (depending on your theme, layout etc). As an alternative you can use one of the plenty available gallery plugins (I would personally go with the custom css since it is a very simple thing you ask for) Blocks (Gutenberg editor) When ...

Well my private blog only shows 1-2 hits per day so for me it's not counting something that isn't there. Botnets can be used to flood websites and they might be spread over different countries.

The way I fix it only in the live page is by adding a special tag to each Arabic post (for example tag arabic) then in theme CSS I add: tag-arabic { direction: rtl; } You can add that CSS line through your theme (most new theme settings have a page where you can add custom CSS). For the WYSIWYG text editor, you can use this plugin: https://wordpress.org/...

You configure email notifications and confirmations in Cognito Forms via Submission Settings, which is accessed on the green footer on the Build page or by clicking on the submit region of the form.

This is the pingback feature (documentation), which is meant to post a comment on a post when the post is mentioned somewhere else - also on the same blog. If you want to link to a post on your own blog without pinging it, you can do so by not using the absolute URL when linking. From the documentation: To prevent self-pings, remove the domain from the ...

As a full-time blogger, I also share in this same frustration. Here are some tricks to get around this crazy issue with Google Docs and pasting into WordPress. Copy and paste the contents from Google docs into your post. Then copy and paste into a new draft in WordPress, and then back again into your original document. This will clear out all the crazy ...

It sounds like a feedback loop has started. My guess is that your Blogger is triggering your WordPress and your WordPress is triggering your Blogger. I would try looking into the settings of this Applet (used to be called recipe). First: Try to alter the settings of the running/ active Applet that could fix this problem. Second: Maybe you have two ...

If the website is started from scratch, simply just copy all the files from the folder where your local installation of Wordpress is located in directly to the destination server, just change paths and the database accordingly after you have done so.

I have solved this, for the record. When you set the Sharing preference from inside your blog, i.e. at yourblogaddress.com/wp-admin/ you have this problem. It doesn't ask which of your Facebook accounts/Pages you want to connect to. But if you're at wordpress.com/my-blogs/ and you click the Sharing link under your blog in the list, you get a dialog ...

Considering that the plugin isn't developed by WordPress and you can't install custom plugins on a wordpress.com blog, so no - at the moment there's no way to turn on two-factor authentication for Wordpress.com blogs

There is a inbuilt functionality called featured images in WordPress: Reference : http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/ I am not sure whether it will be displayed in Facebook Embed Post but it is worth giving a try if you do not already have. EDIT: See the below reference: http://en.support.wordpress.com/facebook-image-thumbnail/ Featured image:...

It's possible because Facebook knows that it was an automated tool that did the post, and because Facebook sets the rules about what is shared with who. By-pass it by disabling your plugin, and updating Facebook manually, tailoring the post for your Facebook audience.

This is not possible on Wordpress.com hosting. The "plugin" optionality is highly limited and curated on Wordpress.com - so to get a wider breadth of functionality, an upgrade to self-hosted WP is needed.

The 406 seems to stem from a user agent error that my server doesn't seem to like. # venus uses httplib2 underneath import httplib2 h = httplib2.Http() resp, content = h.request("http://ankursinha.in/blog/feed/", headers={'user-agent': 'trolololololol'}) works just fine. I'm still uncertain if the issue is in httplib2 or some server configuration, but ...
