If I create a post in SiteContent I can't see it on the dashboard of my website.

Can I see this post on the dashboard after publishing it through SiteContent?
How can I test this post created in SiteContent with Yoast SEO?
How can I edit this post created in SiteContent, because I have active only Gutenberg editor?

Thank you:)

You can see your post in your website, after publishing it through site content editor.
You can do further editing and SEO in you WordPress editor.

Hi Darko, you will need to publish the article on site content to your site to see it there.
with Yoast you will need to add the keyword and click on update - why are you using yoast and not all in one seo?
Yoast is a bit overboard and can force you into a seo route rather than writing naturally. The traffic light system can put pressure on you to change a good article into one for the search engines.
But it is your choice.
Your article will come up in a classic editor block - you now have three choices.
1. don't add images - as the classic block does not allow this in gutenberg.
2. convert it to blocks and add images and update the blocks ( see my training on adding images in gutenberg)
3. add the classic editor plugin and set you site to enable both editors to be used. You can add images into this classic editor.

whichever way you go on your site - remember once you have published your article you edit it on your site and sitecontent will not reflect the changes you have made.

good luck

Great answer Phil. Lately, don't get good community support. That's why I appreciate your answer very much.

I am using Gutenberg along with Yoast SEO. I like this Yoast SEO because it helps me a lot with readability and keywords. Btw have no or don't see any special advantage because of using Yoast SEO. My Google rank is still desperate.

As I can conclude the biggest problem are images. If I don't insert images with SiteContent I wouldn't have problems later with Gutenberg.

I am going to watch your training (if I find it), but Gutenberg does not allow inserting images in line with text?

Thank you again.

sorry Darko should have added a link, but don't like self promotion. as you say if you are publishing from sitecontent to gutenberg you can't transfer images.
you can insert them inline - hopefully the training will show you how.
once in gutenberg you can click the change to blocks.
with all of these sites you must be patient, depending on the niche. 3-6 months to start getting ranked well is not unusual. even with all the traffic lights green.
i think gutenberg is the future way forward with wordpress, it still has issues but could be a very good system.
are you still working on your airbnb site or did i see that you have accepted the sac challenge?
Reply
DarkoL Premium
I accepted as you say sac challenge. I did not know it meant giving up on my website. I have one category which I called "Money" and it is on my regular site. Is that wrong?
Reply
feigner Premium
You do not have to give up work on your regular site - if you are following sac then you probably won't have time to work on your original site.
i would say that a site for sac should be separate from your original site, if it is not related.
you could setup a siterubix one to start with and then transfer all of the content to a domain later.
the main thing is to be really focused on which audience and how you are feeding them back to wa.
if you stick with your original site then add other sub categories to money - depending on what you are writing about.
so if it is reviews of mmo offers you could have
money=> mmo reviews
money=> tutorials
money=> tools
money=> resources

Uh, Phil. Nobody didn't say that I have to create a new website. I will give up from sac. It's too much for me.

Let me ask you something. When my premium membership expires and I do not extend it do I break the relationship with my "mentor".
Can I get back in WA for a while but through a new mentor? My English maybe is not so good but I hope you understand me.
Reply
feigner Premium
it is a lot to take on - i started last year and gave up after a few months.
just remember you don't have to follow at their speed, just go at your own, it would be difficult enough translating and understanding what is needed.
unfortunately with wa- even if you stop paying and then return you only go back through the same mentor - it is a lifetime cookie.
the only way to get another mentor is to create a new account under who you want as a mentor.
but you would also have to get your site out of wa and then back in to your new account.
i can understand what you are after, but wa does not allow swapping mentors - sometimes i wish it did.
Reply
DarkoL Premium
Why is new account so big problem? I wouldnt lose my website, nor my domain. Maybe is hosting problem?
I will not bother you anymore for today. Sorry if i was
strenuous (is that word ok?).
Reply
feigner Premium
getting a new account is ok, but your site would still be with your old account and need to be moved to the new one.
You are no bother Darko, It helps me take breaks.
a burden ( heavy load) rather than strenuous ( requiring great effort) maybe better. but i know your meaning.
Reply
merlynmac Premium
SiteContent is separate from your site. As such, your site has no clue about it until it's published. Once published, you can't edit it in SiteContent any more and must do so from within your site.

The only way to test is the post is live. As for Gutenberg, do yourself a favor and install the Classic Editor plugin.
Reply
DarkoL Premium
It looks to me like one step back. If I activated Classic editor can I choose between Classic and Gutenberg which to use? If I have too many plugins activated wouldn't that slow my website?
Reply
DarkoL Premium
Phil one more question: can you give me a list of plugins you are using and which are activated.
Reply
feigner Premium
the one site i have 42 installed with 38 active and that one i need ot reduce the amount. but typically the other sites are between 10-20 all active.
so adding the classic editor plugin will not affect your site speed.
you can then setup your site to choose between either.
goto settings writing and you can select whether you can change between or not , which one comes up as standard.
if you are using sitecontent it maybe better to install the classic editor and have that one as default.
i have gone away from that and am using the gutenberg editor with extra blocks.
Reply
merlynmac Premium
I only recommend it because it's what's used in most of the trainings, it doesn't slow your site down and I've seen issues crop up for some, usually involving images, that they don't seem to have using the Classic Editor.
Reply
DarkoL Premium
I have 19 active plugins and I wonder if there is a way to find out which plugins are really in use. I want to deactivate active plugins that have no impact on my website. Can such plugins be detected?

For example, I am using (I mean plugin is active) Ultimate Addons for Gutenberg which extends the Gutenberg functionality with several unique and feature-rich blocks that help build websites faster.

I don't remember did I use Ultimate Addons for Gutenberg in any of my posts or pages. If I did and if I deactivate Ultimate Addons for Gutenberg I would have a hole on some of my posts or pages or what?

There are many plugins that you most likely not using all the time and only when needed. Those can be deactivated until you need them again and then only for the duration of using it.

Example...Page to post plugin, only need it once in a while so I leave it deactivated till I need to use it.

I have got announcements from WordPress two times that “New user registration on your site…”

What does this mean? It is difficult for me to believe because on my site I have no place where to subscribe?

How someone can register to my page as a user just like that?

I want to get rid of them and get my pages on my control again. What should I do?
Reply
feigner Premium
Hi Darko, if you go into your wordpress dashboard and click on users all users.
if you see anyone there other than ywho you added delete them.
then goto settings general and untick membership.
there has been a flaw within one of the plugins that allows members to join. but that should stop it.
good luck

make sure you update all of uor plugins - i think it was one which checked other plugins which caused a problem. but i think wordpress has it covered now.
personally i do a backup of my sites every month, but i am not creating that much content at the moment - was doing weekly.
it is your business, personally i try not to rely on others to do what i can.
a lot are using All in One WP Migration - yeah i know another plugin, but seriously this one is inactive and doesn't add anything to your site -so don't delete or turn it off after use.

I used plugin Insert Headers and Footers to insert code For Google Adsense, and few other things. After I did that I deactivated this plugin.

With deactivation did I broke the connection to Google Adsense? Is general ok to deactivate any plugin?

With plugin Custom Sidebars I had problems after deactivation because I made some sidebars with this plugin and they disappeared after deactivation.
Reply
feigner Premium
if you are using the plugins you cannot disable them - theymust stay activated.
so yes the code may be broken.
it is worth reactivating and seeing what happens - you may need t upload the adsense code and recreate the sidebars.

Ty Phil,

But many plugins slow down website. What is right measure? How many plugins to use? What are must have plugins?
Reply
feigner Premium
must have plugins are what you need for a good user experience.
not all plugins wil lslow your site down.
one site i have has 22 plugins and still works ok so...
keep them to a minimum but don't restrict yourself - try it out on a test site first.
have fun

I know that u don't need a plugin to use adsense, so it can be used without the plugin. Try install adsense again to be shure.

I am confused. On OEC training I am on level 3 lesson 4 where you can learn about affiliate programs. As I don't have any relevant affiliate link I start Affiliate bootcamp and found there lot of things I have learned in OEC. Is that ok to use both training in same time, or I should first finish OEC?
Where to learn how to use WA affiliate banners? Thanx.
Reply
merlynmac Premium
They are similar in training, just one has selected WA as your affiliate promotion. That said, I recommend doing one at a time for your first site. Once you have it down you can create additional sites, etc.

I would do one piece of training at a time otherwise it gets confusing.

OEC is more focused on niche websites.

Boot camp is focused more on websites promoting WA.

Maybe somebody knows why I get 2 same messages when someone comment on my web site. One email come to address darko@velastiniva.com (which is created on my website) and second on darko.loncar@hotmail.com (which is my regular address).
When I created web email address in same time i made forward to my regular email. So I expected to get only one message on my regular email address. Is this bug?
Reply

Under Settings => Discussion you have enabled the "Email me whenever Anyone posts a comment" checkbox. So Wordpress will send you a direct email to the admin mail (darko).

But you also created a forwarder so the email will be sent to darko.loncar too.

When I downloading images from Wikimedia Commons under license I see that :

Under the following conditions:

How can I give appropriate credit and/or provide a link to the license? I am pretty unsure about using images from web.

You just need to mention the source and/or the author of the image. When is possible, you can link (a regular text link) the original source page or the author's web page.

There is nothing to show Conrad. You are saying something like "Image source ..." or "Image author ...."

And you are creating a text link from that text.

davemc2019 Premium
What you could do is mention that the image was from "the name of the person who uploaded it to wiki" and you can always add a link to where the image was got from. Just make sure when using a link to click open in a new window as this will leave your site open

When I look at my post in WordPress edit mode it is significantly different then same post on my web page. It mean that I need for every little thing go Update - Preview? It is pretty hard to place image where I want. Is it really so hard or I am doing wrong?
Reply

if you have upgraded to gutenberg editor the best advice i can give is to use the media and text block instead of the paragraph block as this allows you to go back and add an image in each block.
the training will need ot be completely redone on this site next year to catch up with this.
Good luck Conrad

Hello there!!! And welcome to WA Premium. You will not regret your decision!! The information available here is never ending!! And the training is incredible!! Take it ALL in!!

Follow the training! I cannot stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons. I often jumped ahead in training, on my own, to only later really regret it.

Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. You’ll want to learn more!! It ignites a new passion within you. It did me! Gave me back my purpose for living! There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome!! Be amazing!!! And be successful!!

At the moment as you have just joined you are way up in the hundred thousands but its surprising how quickly you will come down to a 'Higher' rank.
Right now you should concentrate 100% on the training.
Lots of time to get more involved once you have a website up and running and actually making money from it.
Onwards and upwards.

I'm just considering different niche options and it looks pretty hard to me. I have three options:

1. Something related to my former business - business analysis. I worked in Excel, worked on pivot tables, reported to management. I know that much about it, but it does not interest a large number of people, possibly interested in the companies.

2. Somewhat related to my dog Dante.He is purebred Cavalier King Charles Spaniel 11 month old. But what about him?

3. We have a house in a beautiful bay on the island of Hvar where we live half a year and we are engaged in tourism and agriculture. We announce this deal about renting an apartment and maybe our own web site might help. But can it earn 1000 $ per month?

Please help and suggestions. I think I understood the whole concept and certainly the greatest wisdom is how to get people to your site.

Its always best to go with what you have experience of and knowledge of.

You have mentioned 3 things.
Business Analysis can certainly help you with an online business so keep that in mind when you are planning and creating your online business.
Cavalier King Charles Spaniels
You are sure to have a lot of knowledge about this breed and of course there are lots of opportunities to become an affiliate with products related to this particular breed.
Tourism of course is a worldwide industry so you could easily have a website dedicated to your country and area.

You MUST do your research and yes I know this can be boring but it will really pay you to spend a few days researching all the possibilities.
Have a good day.
