I have been asked to provide a link to track sales that may be generated by a customer's children through their social media posts.Does anyone know the best way to do this?I was thinking of creating a landing page and then following any potential purchase after that using analytics.But I am wondering if someone here knows of a better way?After some research - it looks like I may need to add an affiliate plug-in to my site, so I am looking at that.

Generate Press is having a Black Friday week, and they are almost done. I received an email today reminding me, so I thought I would pass it along.If you extend you license they are offering 45% off the regulat extension fee. I took advantage of this last year and have decided to do it again this year. I am now covered until June of 2022.If you were thinking about trying Generate Press now might be the time to go for it.I do find GP to be a great theme that works for me. It might not be for eve

Calculating the correct tax to be paid on WoocommerceIt should not have been this hard. Though perhaps I am my own worst enemy, but here is the story.The ProblemI had set up Woocommerce to include tax in the price for my products.

We are not readyBill Gates - TED talkI saw this recently and it is surprising that as far back as 2015 Bill Gates was saying that we were not prepared for a pandemic. Nobody listened. Thanks to Kyle for showing it to me.To be fair we are still not listening, though I suspect the numbers that are being shown today in countries around the world is forcing more and more people to sit up and take notice.Everywhere this morning people are recognizing that we need to do more to stem the tide.The last

Update required keep getting asked to update my php for my website, but especially for WooCommerce.

I will get to the
