Not as far as I am aware....

Well, now I see comments about websites being down. Tried to log in to my back office and saw I couldn't do that either.

What is the issue? Are you now able to?

Yes, the problem was the outage a few days ago when we couldn't access websites. It was pretty widespread and I saw others commenting on it. I think Carson even mentioned the problem.
thanks for replying!

I see, gotcha.... :) So now you're sorted, right!?!

oh yes, everything is good! Starting to see my website and posts rank higher on Google too. :)

That's so great to hear Scott :) I am happy for you.

I accidentally published a post under "admin" instead of my name. I see a link that says "Edit User," but I can't see a way to change from "admin" to my name. Is it possible to

Head to your user's tab, input your first name and choose it from the drop-down menu. Don't forget to save your changes.

Provided you have other authors with the user's tab, you can 'quick edit,', change the author, and update.

Click “Posts” and then “All Posts”
Choose the post you want to change the author of and click “Edit”
Click “Document” in the right sidebar.
Find “Author” under “Status and Visibility”
Open the dropdown menu to change the author.
Click “Update” to confirm the change.

thank you, Sharon! This was very helpful!

Thank you, I was wondering how to do this myself.

I am signing up for Flex Offers (is this one good?) My site is relatively new and I haven't begun to push traffic to it yet. As part of the sign up, they want to verify my webs

Wow.. now that's specific help! Who knew I could find an article that specific? :)

No worries, all good.

I read the question that you posted and the answers, but honestly, still confused. I installed a Meta Tag Manager that is supposed to help with adding meta tags, but I'm still not sure how even works.

You need headers and footers or WP code plugins.

still not coming together for me. :(

I've tried Headers and Footers - but I have no idea what to put in the script.
I've tried Meta Tag Manager and added the code that I thought should go in there, but FlexOffers doesn't see my tag. So I'm lost.

For ShareASale or Awin questions you may reach out to Jeannine

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/jeanninec

You need copy the whole code and paste in the header section of your plugin to make it work.

I've been pasting this code in the Header Script box:
<meta name="fo-verify" content="6f2ce965-727e-496c-8f30-4a8de6e4e18d">
Then I save it and it still must not be right.

Yes, put the code <meta name="fo-verify" content="6f2ce965-727e-496c-8f30-4a8de6e4e18d"> into the Header Script box and save. But that doesn't work. I've sent an email to support.

So far, I don't have any questions about ShareASale.

How do you know it doesn't? Is FlexOffers support the one you contacted?

Okay.

When I click the "verify my website" button, it says they don't see my meta tag.
Yes, I contacted Flex Offers.
Thanks for the help!

No worries, kindly let us know how you get on.

Congratulations on your first 5 posts, that's really awesome progress.

You can change your theme anytime you like. Here is what to do.

You may go to Appearance > Themes and add new.

Input what you are looking for, install and activate.

Your content will be left intact, you may lose out on CSS styles and social media icons if that, however with a bit of tweaking and you are done.

We always recommend you leaving a back up theme, you may od with the Twenty TwentyThree.

I hope this helps

I myself like to use Blocksy as my utmost.

You want to make sure they are responsive, extremely light, fast, well coded, SEO optimised, flexible, adaptable and customisable

You may try GeneratePress or Premium where you can extend the theme and can have many layout templates.

In back office, site health tells me that plugins are out of date and that this is a critical issue. Can I just click on "update plugins"? Will this cause problems? At work, I

You can.

If major update, you may want to consider backing up your website. You can use the AIO WP Migration or Updraft plugins. UpdraftPlus is a premium and highly recommended

If your website is hosted here, site support keeps daily backups.

i would update them in order
plugins then themes then wordpress...
reason for that is some plugins may become incompatible with the newer version of wordpress - so your site could crash if you do it the other way around...
but support have your back and take daily backups...
i tend to create a backup occasionally just in case...

Yes, you can...I do it all the time with no issue. However, if anything is cause for concern, send Site Support a note asking them if the update is ok and if it will not impact your site's operating speed.

-Mike

Yes, you can update them, it is necessary to maintain the health of the site.

Happy work,
Slavka🖐️

Awesomeness.
