Core “Business Start Up” Training
asked in
The Wealthy Affiliate Platform
Updated

I just finished Level 5 and did Level 6 part 1 of SEO and when I returned it has left me right at the start Park 1 Level 1 - "Start Here". I can click through to the end of par

My renewal is up in three days, I think what I'll do is cancel and join up with MOZ - who have great training and take it from there. If I can't get back to my COURSE 6 SEO training there doesn't seem any point. I don't host any of my websites here anyway

I would hate to see you go Paul. I know there is great opportunity here. Have you tried sending Kyle or Carson a private message?

Yes - he normally responds quick but it's been nearly 24 hours now

Paul have you tried this? Click on the get started here tab when that opens in a new screen don't click view lesson 1 go to the blue course description boxes below and click on level 6. If you haven't tried that give it a go that could fix you up and get the train back on the track

Yes I don't get any options like that. All I get is the option to complete the Level 1 - which I can go directly to the end - chapter 10 (my ticks are still in the boxes!!) - I can go onto level 2 - but it stops there. Unable to get any further.

I wonder - I haven't tried it in Firefox. could be browser specific. I know this is a long shot, but I'll try this in Firefox

That is what I am using

I dont beleive this - My history (the green box with your progress on the left) is still set to "Getting Started here" - but I can now access the training in FIREFOX - but not chrome

This is a compelling argument for Firefox. I used to love Firefox, but I got sucked into the Chrome thing !!!

That is what I saw and it worked great. Well that is good news! I wonder if you clear your cache in chrome if you could move ahead?

yes I thought of that but it didn't make any difference. Thinking back there might have been an update on Chrome yesterday.

That might have done it. I have learned a new answer to a problem thanks Paul. At least now you can get on with the training.

Paul have you checked all of the to do boxes as you went along?

yes all the time

Are you checking off all the boxes at the end of the training. If not your going to start at the same course

Why has training history been reset back to the beginning?

My account seems to to have gone back to "non premium" training mode. My account renewal isn't up for about a week. Just wonder if there is a problem I'm not aware about. I hav

You must still be a premium member or you wouldn't be able to ask questions and send private messages. What makes you think that your status has changed?

Why has my training been reset back to the beginning then? I'm at course 1 chapter 1 and I'm unable to get back to course 6 chapter 2.

Yeah, contact support too and see what's up!

Hi there, I'm wondering if anyone has done this successfully.

I have two domains, both registered at GoDaddy and pointed to WA. Now due to plugin restrictions I want to t

There's a plugin for that: WP DB Backup. It gets complicated at the other end because you need to use PHPMyAdmin. If you move to HostGator using my affiliate link I can help you with no charge to you. Private Message me.

That's kind of you Marion, but it's more convenient to move back to GoDaddy as the domains are registered there and I've been with them a while. I'll try using the WP plugin - thanks

I think It's possible to do a FTP transfer on a SiteRubix webpage.Just find the FTP username and password and transfer the files.You said you are familiar with the process of it so you should have no problems :)

I'll check it again thanks

EVERY thing I click on in my G+ keeps getting the following message box appearing

Your content has recently violated our policies.

Spamming, including sending unw

The problem is that most of us DO NOT SET the security on G+ when we OPEN G+ ACCOUNT, so are victim of any Tom, Dick & Harry who may want to spam us. I just disabled my G+ account, and will take time to study the tutorials and understand it before setting up another one. If you get in touch with them, they are very helpful.

Are you putting affiliate links on G+?

If yes, that's not allowed.

Yes - I did - However I now know this - so what happens now? Do they ban me? Will the pop up box ever disappear from my G+ screen? - Google don't ever respond and I can't find any info on the web. Just wondered if anyone had experience of this?

Remove all of the affiliate links and see if the box disappear.

I'll double check but I thought i did that - must have done it more than once. thanks

Only can guess there.
The box might stay there for a while as a reminder and warning.
Make sure you really deleted all affiliate links and don't do it again.
I think the box will disappear then after some time.

Always link to your website articles, reviews, etc. On your website you can then have your affiliate links.

If you can't put affiliate links in G+ whats the purpose of promoting your business through G+?

I use links but don't advertise that often on G+ and always change the excerpt text for every G+ post.

Yes. I though that myself. Good question

Why would social media sites let you advertise things for free, when they can make money from it?
We use social media to gain traffic and build an audience. Send them to our "money pages".
You can and should link to your site as much as you want.
Just not directly to a product with an affiliate link.

I miss read affiliate links. I though he was referring to website links

yes I know - what is was (I think) was a direct link to a WA tutorial and not one of my blog posts - I've removed it now though
