Wrecksite Save The Day

Last Update: December 29, 2015

Just a quick blog here.

Recently, I've installed Sumome plugin on my website because it has a LOT of neat features (list-building, popup, heatmap, social sharing, etc). You can see Jason's training about Sumome here:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/analyse-g...

However, my website has been crashed after installed it. Social sharing buttons are always shown in the left side of my windows, even if I changed the display setting. Some of image display and homepage layout also has been wrecked.

What's worse, I try to deactivate and delete the plugin, but the mess it created still persist. Thankfully, I used a Wrecksite to try it first before applying it to my main website.

For more information about Wrecksite / Testing Site, you can see Loes' training here:

After a careful looking, it looks like my theme also doesn't compatible with other social sharing plugin (super socializer), because the mess still persist. I need both to be removed :)

So, this is my advise. Always do a backup when you want to install a new plugin, or at least do it in a test website. It may save your time and effort, rather than panicking because your website has been messed by a plugin.

P.S. : Anyone has recommendation for good social sharing plugin?


Cheers,

Ferdinand

"Add To Any" plugin is so very easy to use if all you want to do is share your post on the various social media.
