RSS Featured Image
By Jordy Meow
https://wordpress.org/plugins/rss-featured-image/
meta: Version:1.0.5 Last updated:12 months ago Active installations:2,000+ WordPress Version:5.0 or higher Tested up to:5.3.6 PHP Version:5.0 or higher Tags:featuredimagemailchimprssthumbnail
RSS Featured Image adds the featured image into your RSS feed (in the media:content). It works nicely with Mailchimp (|RSSITEM:IMAGE|). In fact, it basically does the same thing as another (and more famous) plugin but without cluttering your WordPress Admin. This is a simple task, and I believe it should be invisible and run peacefuly in the background, with no impact on the UI and the overall WordPress performance.
USAGE By default, the size of the image is “large”. I think it would be a shame to add new options to your WordPress admin only for this, so if you want to change the size, I propose you a filter You can include some code in your functions.php to take care of this. This is how you can use it:

function thumbnail_size_for_rss( $default ) {
return ‘thumbnail’;
}
add_filter( ‘rfi_rss_image_size’, ‘thumbnail_size_for_rss’, 10, 1 );

Display feeds in your blog, using PHP, a Widget or Shortcode. The plugin uses only standard WordPress functionality, so no external libraries are required. For older versions of WordPress, the built-in MagpieRSS library is used. For WordPress 2.8 and newer, there is a setting available to enable the built-in SimplePie library for parsing feeds.
As with all other content you publish, make sure you are allowed to (re-)publish the content of the feeds you are about to import!
You can insert the following code into a PHP plugin or in a template, for example sidebar.php or single.php:

Example:
This is the minimal code needed for using the plugin. The plugin accepts a number of parameters for customizing the feed content import. See below for the full list of available parameters. You can also use any of the parameters with Shortcode in posts and pages.

Example Shortcode:
[RSSImport display=”5″ feedurl=”https://bueltge.de/feed/” use_simplepie=”true”]

For all (bool) parameters you can either use the strings true and false or the integer values 1 and 0.

Import XML and RSS FeedsBy Moove Agency
https://wordpress.org/plugins/import-xml-feed/
meta: Version:2.0.4 Last updated:3 months ago Active installations:3,000+ WordPress Version:4.3 or higher Tested up to:5.6.2 PHP Version:5.6 or higher Tags:feed importrssrss importxmlXML Impor
This plugin adds the ability to import content from an external XML/RSS file, or from an uploaded XML/RSS and add the content to any post type in your WordPress install. It also supports importing taxonomies alongside posts.

THE PROCESS OF IMPORT:
Select the source ( URL or FILE UPLOAD )
Select your repeated XML element you want to import – This should be the node in your XML file which will be considered a post upon import.
Select the post type you want to import the content to.
Match the fields from the XML node you’ve selected (step 2) to the corresponding fields you have available on the post type.
XML FILES AND URLS
The XML source file should be a valid XML file. The plugin does check if the URL source or the Uploaded file is valid for import and processing. If you use the URL source for importing, please make sure the URL you are using is not password protected with HTTP Auth or any other form of authentification (it needs to be public).

Accepted formats: XML 1.0, XML 2.0, Atom 1, RSS

FEATURES
XML Preview – After successfully uploading an XML file or reading an external URL, the plugin will present you with an XML preview of the selected node, which can be used to check if you’ve selected the correct node or you have all the data read correctly by the plugin. This preview presents one item from the selected node and it is paginated so you can navigate back and forward between the elements.
Linking Taxonomies to Posts – This plugin allows you to import categories/taxonomies from the XML file and link the imported posts to these taxonomies. First you need to have the taxonomies created in WordPress to allow the plugin to import into these taxonomies. By default WordPress has two taxonomies: categories and tags.
Limit posts – In the “Import Settings” area you can limit the import. You can use multiple patterns to include posts in the import. Use semicolon to separate the values. Eg.: 1-8;10;14-
Importing and linking multiple taxonomies to one post – To import and link one post to multiple taxonomies, you need to have an XML element in your selected node with a list of categories separated by commas. These elements will be recognized and imported separately as taxonomy terms.
[Premium] Save & Load templates – After the fields are matched, you can save the matching as a template, and use it when it’s needed.
[Premium] Support for tag attributes
[Premium] Custom Fields & ACF support

https://wordpress.org/plugins/category- ... feed-menu/
meta: version:v2.1 Last updated:7 months ago Active installations:7,000+ WordPress Version:3.0 or higher Tested up to:5.5.3 Tags:feedwordpress plugin
This WordPress Plugin allows you to present a menu with multiple RSS feed subscription option to your site’s visitors in addition to your normal RSS subscription option.
If your site covers multiple topics then your subscribed readers may get annoyed when you update your site with content that they are not interested in and they get a notification in their RSS reader.
I found that most of the time I never subscribe to a site’s RSS feed when it doesn’t have the topic/category specific subscription option, specially when the site covers multiple topics cause I don’t like to be hammered with all the unwanted content updates.
This plugin allows you to show category specific RSS feed for all your categories. Alternatively, you can configure up to 8 different custom topic specific RSS feeds.
RSS FEED FOR YOUR TAGS
You can also create a tag specific RSS feed menu using this plugin. Create an rss feed menu for all of your tags on the blog using a simple shortcode.
There is an option to create a tag cloud with RSS feed of each tag also.
TAG RSS FEEDS FOR A SPECIFIC POST/ARTICLE
You can use this plugin to show the tags and the rss feed of each tag for a particular article. This is very helpful if you currently show the tags of an article/post.
For information, updates and detailed documentation, please visit the Category specific rss feed plugin page.

This plugin allows you to easily switch from Feedburner to the FREE (on the basic plan) and better Feedburner alternative follow.it.
Read more why follow.it is the better Feedburner alternative.
The plugin is very easy to use:

Step 1: Download, install & activate it
Step 2: Click on “Apply redirect” for all feeds you want to redirect (most likely your main feed, as well as some comments & author feeds you may have)
Step 3: Connect it to a follow.it account to get access to your subscribers, see statistics etc. (see screenshots)
Once the redirect is active, your RSS-url will redirect to your new feed page where users can subscribe to your feed.

If you had former Feedburner subscribers, follow the steps as prompted in the plugin to move them over to your new feed (RSS as well as Email subscribers).
If something is not working in the Feedburner alternative plugin, please post a question in the support forum. Thank you!

monitor harddisk health with smartmontools

on a Notebook my SATA drive suddenly started to click and make other kind of noice. I do not want to loose data - nor the notebook itself.

solutions and ideas, methods and test-routines:

- the first idea i had was..:to move files off of the drive,
- the i thougt that it is a good idea to test the health of the drive
- benchmarking and checks of the dyn. performance: i.e. to test all of the sectors regarding the
situation of the individual sectors (i.e. if one is bad) - there are lots of intersting tools for that,

Well, in general, hard disks built-in health-check tool called SMART (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology), these do checks of the disk for potential problems. And they help to avoid loss of important data. generally SMART runs automatically; but you alos can do checks on your disk’s health by running the Disks application:

for a quick and easy test we can use smartctl; well this is pretty straightforward: we can check disk health on Linux by using the included smartctl utility on the terminal.

what is aimed:
- making sure that there is not any data corruption avoid to have issues.
- making sure that we do not have (or get) trouble in accessing the data on the hdd that means
- having troubles in accessing the files.


one test routine could be:

Code: Select all
sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda | less


output: set of information about the hard drive's condition.

i like smartctl. It is running on my mx-system and it gives back a great overview.

by the way: there are some tests-methods - regarding the length & duration: short-test and long test..

The three different test are the following ones: Short, Long and Conveyance - with those you also see the time that it will take to complete all three test:

shorttest: a short test, usually sufficient at detecting issues: run it with:
Code: Select all
 sudo smartctl -t short /dev/sda: (run for the short test)

Longtest: a longer test if you are more concerned that examines the entire disk surface: s
Code: Select all
udo smartctl -t long /dev/sda (for run this for the long test)

Conveyance: a conveyance test which is used to test if damages occurred during transportation of the device from the manufacturer:
Code: Select all
sudo smartctl -t conveyance /dev/sda (run this for the conveyance test)


besides the command line, there are very popular and well known tool gnome-disk-utility

other tools:

- Palimpsest (aka gnome-disk-utility) GUI program that gives the same info;
- badblocks another utility; it shows the amount and location of bad blocks on the drive;


GUI-tools
: For anyone who finds they don't have smartctl: it's probably under your package manager as "smartmontools".

badblocks is one more useful utility; this program shows the amount and besides this also the location of bad blocks on your drive:

Code: Select all
sudo badblocks -v /dev/sda



see a demo output

Re: FTP Information

Hi,

So I'm by no means and expert but you need to update
*lampp/etc/proftpd.txt
*lampp/etc/httpd.txt

The httpd.txt I changed to allow access to folders other than just http
Proftpd.txt cut the path for folder back to "/" so you can access all other folder on the server.

*lampp is the mounted mac drive

username is daemon
password xampp

Code: Select all
# This is a basic ProFTPD configuration file (rename it to
# 'proftpd.conf' for actual use.  It establishes a single server
# and a single anonymous login.  It assumes that you have a user/group
# "daemon" and "ftp" for normal operation and anon.

ServerName         "ProFTPD"
ServerType         standalone
DefaultServer         on

[code]# Port 21 is the standard FTP port.
Port            21
# Umask 022 is a good standard umask to prevent new dirs and files
# from being group and world writable.
Umask            022

# To prevent DoS attacks, set the maximum number of child processes
# to 30.  If you need to allow more than 30 concurrent connections
# at once, simply increase this value.  Note that this ONLY works
# in standalone mode, in inetd mode you should use an inetd server
# that allows you to limit maximum number of processes per service
# (such as xinetd)
MaxInstances         30

# Set the user and group that the server normally runs at.
User daemon
#Group daemon

# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
<Directory /opt/lampp//*>
  AllowOverwrite      on
</Directory>

# only for the web servers content
DefaultRoot /opt/lampp/

<Limit SITE_CHMOD>

Code: Select all
#
# This is the main Apache HTTP server configuration file.  It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/> for detailed information.
# In particular, see
# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/mod/directives.html>
# for a discussion of each configuration directive.
#
# Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
# what they do.  They're here only as hints or reminders.  If you are unsure
# consult the online docs. You have been warned. 
#
# Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
# of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
# server will use that explicit path.  If the filenames do *not* begin
# with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so 'log/access_log'
# with ServerRoot set to '/www' will be interpreted by the
# server as '/www/log/access_log', where as '/log/access_log' will be
# interpreted as '/log/access_log'.

#
# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
# configuration, error, and log files are kept.
#
# Do not add a slash at the end of the directory path.  If you point
# ServerRoot at a non-local disk, be sure to specify a local disk on the
# Mutex directive, if file-based mutexes are used.  If you wish to share the
# same ServerRoot for multiple httpd daemons, you will need to change at
# least PidFile.
#
ServerRoot "/opt/lampp"

#
# Mutex: Allows you to set the mutex mechanism and mutex file directory
# for individual mutexes, or change the global defaults
#
# Uncomment and change the directory if mutexes are file-based and the default
# mutex file directory is not on a local disk or is not appropriate for some
# other reason.
#
# Mutex default:logs

#
# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
# ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
# directive.
#
# Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to
# prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses.
#
#Listen 12.34.56.78:80
Listen 80

Umfragen, Surveys, Polls: einfach - aufwändig: ein Überblick

Tach community,

vielleicht setzt ihr auch Umfragen ein - und habt hier auf dem Feld schon einige Erfahrungen gemacht.

Umfragen, Surveys, Polls: von einfach bis aufwändig: ein Überblick auf Systeme u. Erweiterungen

Für Umfragen gibt es mittlerweile sehr gute und leistungsfähige Open-Surce-Lösungen...
Z.B. LimeSurvey - eine freie Online-Umfrage-Applikation, die es ermöglicht, ohne Programmierkenntnisse Online-Umfragen zu entwickeln, zu veröffentlichen sowie deren Ergebnisse in einer Datenbank zu erfassen. Sie ist in PHP geschrieben und baut auf einer MySQL-, PostgreSQL- oder MSSQL-Datenbank auf. Die Auswertung kann mit SAS, SPSS u.a.m. erfolgen.

Ich persönlich setze Limesurvey auch seit einigen Monaten ein. Der Funktionsumfang ist schon okay - man kann einiges damit machen.

Egal, ob man nur schnell einen einfachen Fragebogen erstellen will oder aber an einer sehr ausgeklügelten Umfrage mit aufwändigen Validierungsregeln, und Erhebungsdesign arbeitet, für die (se) aufwändigen Aufgaben ist Limesurvey oft das Tool der Wahl. Es wird mittlerweile von Universitäten auf der ganzen Welt eingesetzt. Nebenbei: LimeSurvey ist die einzige Open-Source-Software für Umfragen, die aktiv entwickelt wird.

WORDPRESS MAIL SMTP PLUGIN
Having problems with your WordPress site not sending emails? You’re not alone. Over 1 million websites use WP Mail SMTP to send their emails reliably.
Our goal is to make email deliverability easy and reliable. We want to ensure your emails reach the inbox.
WP Mail SMTP fixes your email deliverability by reconfiguring WordPress to use a proper SMTP provider when sending emails.
WHAT IS SMTP?
SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) is an industry standard for sending emails. Proper SMTP configuration helps increase email deliverability by using authentication.
Popular email clients like Gmail, Yahoo, Office 365, and Zoho are in a constant battle with email spammers. One of the things they look at is if an email is originating from the location it claims to be originating from.
If the proper authentication isn’t there, then emails either go in the SPAM folder or worst, don’t get delivered at all.
This is a problem for a lot of WordPress sites because by default, WordPress uses the PHP mail function to send emails generated by WordPress or any contact form plugin like WPForms.

WORDPRESS MAIL SMTP PLUGIN
Having problems with your WordPress site not sending emails? You’re not alone. Over 1 million websites use WP Mail SMTP to send their emails reliably.
Our goal is to make email deliverability easy and reliable. We want to ensure your emails reach the inbox.
WP Mail SMTP fixes your email deliverability by reconfiguring WordPress to use a proper SMTP provider when sending emails.
WHAT IS SMTP?
SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) is an industry standard for sending emails. Proper SMTP configuration helps increase email deliverability by using authentication.
Popular email clients like Gmail, Yahoo, Office 365, and Zoho are in a constant battle with email spammers. One of the things they look at is if an email is originating from the location it claims to be originating from.

If the proper authentication isn’t there, then emails either go in the SPAM folder or worst, don’t get delivered at all.
This is a problem for a lot of WordPress sites because by default, WordPress uses the PHP mail function to send emails

WORDPRESS MAIL SMTP PLUGIN
Post SMTP is a next-generation WP Mail SMTP plugin, that assists in the delivery of email generated by your WordPress site. Post SMTP is the first and only plugin to support the latest security standards. With OAuth 2.0, there is no need to store your email passsword in the WordPress database where it might be found.
The Connectivity Test and intelligent Setup Wizard scan your SMTP server to detect firewall blocks and eliminate configuration mistakes. The built-in Email Log is an invaluable resource for diagnosing problems with emails. Even hosts that block the standard SMTP ports, like GoDaddy or Bluehost, can’t stop your email as Post SMTP can deliver via HTTPS if it can’t use SMTP.
Post SMTP is not another WP Mail SMTP clone like WP Bank or Easy SMTP. It replaces the default WordPress SMTP library, PHPMailer, with the heavy-duty Zend_Mail. Never lose an email to PHP mail() again.

Most shared hosting servers have restrictions when it comes to email. Usually email will get blocked or missing for no reason. Sometimes it will get blocked when your website reaches the daily limit of outgoing email. This plugin can bypass this issue by routing the email through Gmail’s SMTP server.
GMAIL SMTP BENEFITS
Gmail SMTP plugin is not like most SMTP plugins. It uses the OAuth 2.0 protocol to authorize access to the Gmail API – which means a more secure login system and users won’t have to enter any username or password.
Gmail SMTP plugin uses PHPMailer – a very popular library used for sending email through PHP’s mail function. This libary is also used in the core WordPress to send email.
Gmail SMTP plugin utilizes “wp_mail” (A function used by WordPress to send email) instead of completely overriding it. This way you still get all the benefits of the default mail function.
You no longer need to enable Allow less secure apps on your gmail account to fix SMTP connection issue. This issue became prominent from December 2014, when Google started imposing XOAUTH2 authentication (based on OAuth2) to access their apps. This issue still affects almost all the SMTP plugins because they authenticate via username and password.

Viewing logged emails – they can be viewed from the admin interface, as they are stored in a separate table. You get the option to filter them based on subject, email, date, etc.
Deleting logged emails – you can delete them by going to the admin interface. You can either delete them in bulk or selectively – by date, email, or subject.

by the way: ever wanted to check whether an email is sent out - you can do this with simple methods:

a good and nice option is the following: you can do this by doing a password reset email: ;)

by far the easiest method to check if WordPress can send email is to request a password reset.
To do this, you have to make sure you log out of your account on your site and go to your login page,
e.g. like so: go to your webpage wordpress-test-page.il/wp-login.php

if you arrive on that page: just click the following notion “Lost your password?” text:
then you will arrive on the next page, here you can add your e-mail address of the according user account and demand your new passwd:
a texts pops up: “Get New Password.”
if you get the new passwd - then the system works propperly

further checks: to do more tests to check if wp_mail is working properly if i have configured the server correctly?
in other words: i want to check whether an email is sent out using

Code: Select all
wp_mail( $to, $subject, $message, $headers, $attachments );



In order to use wp_mail we have to make sure that the configuration of the server - and especially the php is done correctly:

what is important here: The php.ini has smtp_port = 25 set and the php mail() is working so far.
to run the checks that ensures that wp_mail is working correctly - we have to look
But according to the wordpress documentation wha we can see here for example:
i mean - we can use the 'wp_mail_failed' action to catch a send error.

see for much more infos https://developer.wordpress.org/referen ... il_failed/

The return type tells whether the email contents were sent successfully. Also it says, A true return value does not automatically mean that the user received the email successfully.
It just only means that the method used was able to process the request without any errors

But according to the wordpress documentation.
The return type tells whether the email contents were sent successfully. Also it says, A true return value does not automatically mean that the user received
the email successfully. It just only means that the method used was able to process the request without any errors

....see for much more infos https://developer.wordpress.org/referen ... il_failed/

some tests -: Testing wordpress wp_mail() and if mail() exists on server

see https://gist.github.com/lukesmmr/8e8cf58147a61418ed66

Code: Select all
 

<?php
// check if mail is active on server
if ( function_exists( 'mail' ) ) {
  echo 'mail() is available';
  // test wp mail
  $to = "EMAIL";
  $subject = 'wp_mail test';
  $message = 'wp_mail works';
  $headers = '';
  // load wp stuff
  define('WP_USE_THEMES', false); require('wp-load.php');
  // send
  $sent = wp_mail( $to, $subject, $message, $headers );
  if ( $sent ) {
      echo 'The message was sent.';
  } else {
      echo 'The message was not sent!';
  }
}
else {
  echo 'mail() has been disabled';
}
?>



Some explanations:
when we do tests and checks to see if wp_mail() is sending e-mails properly is: we can register on the wp-website with another e-mail address and check if the e-mail arrives.
this is a appropiate way to do the check: We can see if it arrives or not: If the mail arrives we can admit and see that WordPress is working well and that it is properly sending e-mails (it uses wp_mail() to send registration e-mails).


....see for much more infos https://developer.wordpress.org/referen ... il_failed/ and see also https://gist.github.com/lukesmmr/8e8cf58147a61418ed66

further checks are necessary - especially if the mail does not arrive:

We can do so and strip everything from our mail sending function and only leave the minimalistic base - this can be called the minimalistic base of a
mail-code:


Code: Select all
 

function wpse () {
    echo wp_mail( 'the_email@test_server.com', 'tge subject-text: WP Mail-checks:', 'body-text: the mail is working propperly - you can be lucky' );
}



Additionally we can say the following:

the e-mails sent by WordPress-system (as all e-mails sent by the PHP's mail() function can be fail due to various reasons:
There are many reasons that can effect some issues:

- the mail might be blocked by some e-mail servers
- the mail might be recogniced or marked as spam

that said: additionally we can do further checks and tests:

we can use SMTP (multiple plugins that do that): for sending e-mails. see the many plugins: https://wordpress.org/plugins/search/smtp/

What you are looking for sounds to me more like a high performance, professional, highly configurable environment in the MS Azure world. That's pretty much the diametric opposite of what Xampp wants to be.

Why don't you install Apache, PHP and MariaDB (or MySQL) individually and configure them the way you need? You are free to choose the settings, free to choose the location, free to choose the infrastructure, free to choose the components and free to run updates. You can even update individual tools. Xampp does not offer all that, Xampp is not updateable, Xampp is bound to fixed structures, Xampp is badly free configurable. This is the price for the simple installation procedure. But you are surely not interested in a simple installation procedure, but in a powerful online environment. And that's exactly what you don't get with Xampp.


You ask a great question about setting up and refining my own environment. First, while you are right I could install Linux, PHP, Apache, MySQL, Ruby, etc., it is more an issue of time and effort.

I am not looking for something that is the professional, high performance, high maintenance technical stack, rather, something that works reasonably well, decent performance, and doesn't take a huge amount of time and effort to maintain. I'm just looking for something that is reasonably stable and with decent performance, not at the edge of technical capabilities or requiring huge amounts of time to maintain. My billable time is more important than that.

However, thank you all for the feedback! It has been very, very helpful.

Thanks. Interesting analogy comparing it to a Bugatti Veyron but I might suggest your descriptions of "for beginners only," not really good performance, and not stable or secure sounds more like a Chevy Chevette instead.

Re: MS Azure Linux with XAMPP

Do I want stable and secure? Yes. Bank level security and hardening? No.

I'm trying to find a solid foundation for running a business web site, NOT a transactional business web site but a WordPress, PHP / MySql based application space. While several business applications would run on it, there would not be any financial transactions. Are there no versions of XAMPP that are fairly stable and secure for that type of use?

Also, I am not looking for support. I'm fairly comfortable with networking, PHP coding, Linux, SQL / MySQL, etc. What I am looking for is a solid alternative to the various hosting sites. Because of my business relationship with Microsoft I get a perpetual $100 a month Azure credit. I just need a solid, high-performance LAMP solution that is reasonably stable and secure. XAMPP is one of the solutions I'm considering and trying to understand what experience anyone here has with XAMPP on Azure.

Is XAMPP a substitute for WAMP server

Hello All just signed on and I am looking to move forward in my studies of web development. I had it mentioned to try and install Wampserver to get started with data bases. Plus the other needed required software packages, Apache, phpMyAdmin and so on.

I came across this as an alternative. I am totally new to to this and wondering how they compare, or do they both perform the same tasks.

Are there performance differences or is one a more modern technology, approach to handling Data Bases info.

I am also home schooling myself in this so it is a bit difficult to figure old on my own. Just looking for some support and shared experience. From those who are familiar to it and know what they are doing. Compared to me.
I am running Windows version 10 if that has any bearing on how the two compare.

Thanks in advance for any and all replies and your time.

WORDPRESS MAIL SMTP PLUGIN
Having problems with your WordPress site not sending emails? You’re not alone. Over 1 million websites use WP Mail SMTP to send their emails reliably.
Our goal is to make email deliverability easy and reliable. We want to ensure your emails reach the inbox.
WP Mail SMTP fixes your email deliverability by reconfiguring WordPress to use a proper SMTP provider when sending emails.
WHAT IS SMTP?
SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) is an industry standard for sending emails. Proper SMTP configuration helps increase email deliverability by using authentication.
Popular email clients like Gmail, Yahoo, Office 365, and Zoho are in a constant battle with email spammers. One of the things they look at is if an email is originating from the location it claims to be originating from.
If the proper authentication isn’t there, then emails either go in the SPAM folder or worst, don’t get delivered at all.
This is a problem for a lot of WordPress sites because by default, WordPress uses the PHP mail function to send emails generated by WordPress or any contact form plugin like WPForms.
