Anyone knows of a wa autoresponder?

Anyone knows of a wa autoresponder?

asked in
Keyword, Niche and Market Research

Is there an Autoresponder that one can use on this platform that responds to new people signing up?
When I introduce someone to WA, I would like to send an auto message.

Hey Melanie,

The following tutorial may offer you the help you seek: Hope this helps you.

Hi Trish, thanks for the link, it helps a lot.

Cheers,
Melanie

Hi, Melanie,

Yes, there are. If you look in the header menu in your WA dashboard, you will find a dollar icon. It is just beside the notification icon.

Click on it, in the second row, to the right there is a menu choice called message campaigns. Select it and set up your auto messaging.

I hope this helps.

Roy

Awesome, this is what I'm looking for.
Very helpful indeed.
Thank you Roy.

Hi Roy, Do you have a tutorial on setting up WA's autoresponder?
I searched everywhere on site, but no luck.
Appreciate your help.
Thanks,
Melanie

Although this is made some time ago, it should guide you through the process of setting up the campaign.

Hi Roy, thanks for the link, it helps a lot.
I'm using this link and the one from Trish, they both have lots to offer.
Thanks again.
Melanie

You are most welcome Melanie.

I will check out her training too.

Trish has lots of valuable tutorials.

Can I switch back to classic with wp 6:0?

Can I switch back to classic with wp 6:0?

asked in
Everything Wordpress

Hello Everyone,
I need a little WordPress guidance.

I just upgraded to WordPress 6.0, and am trying to switch back to “Classic Editor”.
Although it loo

There should be no issues using the classic editor with it. We too have seen blogs on the extension for the use of Classic editor

Awesome, good to know.

Thanks

You can access classic editor from within block editor, just type in search classic.

Awesome, thank you AbieAJ,

You're very welcome!

You shouldn't have any problem. The message just hasn't been updated yet.

Okay, great good to know.

Thanks Phil.

Anyone converted to wordpress block editor?

Anyone converted to wordpress block editor?

asked in
Everything Wordpress

Has anyone converted to the new WordPress block editor?
If so, how are you finding it?

I'm presently using Generate Press, and am thinking about converting to Block E

Yes, well worth it. A bit of learning but if I can do it, anyone can.
Also use Divi on another site so it sort of works the same.
But sometimes still write in site content, but have written in blocks and it is not difficult. I just like a couple of things from site content, like the pictures and save options.
Stephen


To us using Divi from Elegant Themes, this new block editing system by wordpress is something not new to us and we get along with it quite more easily. To others, you will be used to it, just use it. Once you get the hang of it, you will enjoy it.

May as well get use to it, sounds like it's here to stay.

Thanks

At the moment, I go back and forth between Classic and Block, as I haven't perfected everything that needs to be known in order to get my posts to the way I want them to look in the latter.

I find Classic is easier to work with overall, and there's a lot to learn with Block that still is unclear to me. Seems many more clicks are needed with Block (as Trish has mentioned) to clean up a post. However, knowing that Block will not be supported eventually, it is something else to learn.

Susan

Thanks for your input Susan, it's good to know we still have an option to switch back and forth.
I better get started before it completely disappear.

I use Generate Press Pro - And I started using Gutenberg a little while ago. Like anything new it took a while to get used to, sometimes it can still be a pain in the ass just like the Classic editor.

But with Classic not being supported after 2022. Best to switch earlier than later.

Good to know, thanks for the heads up.

Hey Melanie,

I finally converted one site last summer, and all is fine.

You will find it frustrating to have to stop and Google just about EVERY move you want to make... until you get the hang of it.

So... what I did was left my LIVE site alone, and I created a site on the SiteRubix server, and imported my content from my LIVE site exporting the content.

Here's a video to show you what I mean: (Did that hoping for a clean database!)

Then I slowly converted EACH and EVERY post and page to the Block Editor... and the air was blue for several days here while converting it... but I FINALLY got it all done.

Once EVERYTHING was exactly how I wanted it to look, I made a back up copy of the temp site, and I restored my LIVE site with that backup... and VOILA!

Now I have 3 other sites of my own... and my customer's sites to look forward to converting.

I shall miss the Classic Editor, as the Block Editor forces users with 3 more clicks for EACH thing you want to do than the Classic Editor required.

Many pros I've spoken with have left WordPress for more reliable/stable CMS's due to their constant changes. Can't say as I blame them... however, that is not an option for me, at this point in time.

Thanks Trish, sounds like I'm in for quite a bit of work.
However, you gave me quite a few helpful tips.
I may consider rebuilding it in Block Editor, if it gets to complicated.

How can I edit a blog image?

How can I edit a blog image?

asked in
The Wealthy Affiliate Platform


First of all, I thought the “Thank You” blog that I posted would automatically show in its assigned category, since it gave me the option of sharing it. Having ne

Hey Melanie,

What I learned about the post images for Wealthy Affiliate (WA) is that the header image needs to be 545 px x 200 px in order to be displayed properly.

Hope you find this helpful.

Yes it's help Trish,
It's good to know the dimensions.

Thank you.

When you select an image from the stock here at WA (while writing your WA post), your editing options are limited.

You can choose to use the entire image, to do so requires you to bring the editing guides to the image's outside edges.

When you only use a portion of the image you've selected, the finished image with be distorted.

The reason why is that the image is set to fit as a banner image. All away across the blog container.

When you want to add an image within the blog post itself, you will find that the same rules apply.


Rudy

Thanks for responding to my question Rudy.
Good to know the rules, very helpful indeed.

Melanie

You Pretty Much Sum it up Rudy, Thanks For Sharing.

You're welcome.

Rudy

You're welcome, Melanie. Hope that helped you.

Rudy

yes, indeed.👍

Hi

If you edited a document in site content and published it, future edits has to be done in WordPress. Site content and WordPress work independently.

I'd place my images in a document in site content and publish it to my site. it will be added to my WordPress media library. Then delete the “temporary image” doc in site content so that it does not get indexed as well.

Thanks for your response, the blog isn't related to WordPress or Site Content.
It was related to the complementary share button you get the you achieve something on WA.

Anyway, Rudy seems to have the answer, I'll try that.

Thanks.

I believe we have to assign our posts to their respective categories prior, so when visitors click on them, they can see all posts related.

I have no idea why would it stretch, however I have always added that I download from free image sites and found them un-stretchy or distorted. You can do same.

If this persists, you may want to report in the bug thread, I am not sure at this stage if it is technical or otherwise.

Thanks, will try again.

Kindly let us know how you get on.

And you're very welcome.
