Where can I find WordPress tutorial?
Here’s the link http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Lessons

Q: I don’t like the default theme you are offering can I have another one I have purchased already?
Absolutely, we can install it for you and do a bare minimum configuration for $250 (this will include installation, setting up menus, setting up widgets). Anything else (support, adjustments, additional requests, etc) will be billed and $65 an hour.

Q: I don’t want to convert to another site. I want to leave everything as-is.
This is possible but the NPS would require a $3,000 monthly license fee paid to them and there will be no support. You would have to find your own ColdFusion hosting and developers.

Q: I have received an email about NPS merging with 2by2host and I expect all functionality and content to be the same and my site to look the same.
This is not exactly accurate. NPS company is going out of business, so they will no longer support or host any of their site. This means that on May 20th all NPS sites will be terminated. 2by2host decided to offer a helping hand in saving NPS’ customers sites. We are working on an extremely tight schedule that limits certain aspects of the migration. Our approach is to do away with the old system and do the conversion to a much better top-of-the-line platform that we host, support and develop for.

Q: Why is 2by2host doing this huge work for free.
We specialize in WordPress publishing sites and have been in web hosting business for a few years. We are very passionate about what we do and always look for new connections with people and businesses. We have done more than 2,000 projects in the last 6 years.

Q: Is there a way for me to see “What Permission” each “user” has?

It might be related to your computer not having enough memory. Close any extra apps you might have running.

Q: Will I have direct FTP or admin access to my website?
Yes in 2 years. If you need FTP access sooner, a fee of $4000 will apply.

Q: I found a plugin for my site that I would like to have installed. What should I do?
We will consider this a custom plugin. Please email us a link to it. We’ll review it and test for compatibility with other currently installed plugins and our security requirements. If it passes our tests we will install it on your site for $65 – $130 depending on the complexity of the plugin. We will reserve the right not to install a custom plugin.

We will be happy to assist you with it at $65 an hour.

Unfortunately, taking into consideration the amount of time it would take to provide comprehensive training we would not be able to physically accomplish it. We will however provide documentation and if needed paid training over Skype at $65 an hour.

20 Gb monthly. Overages are charged at $0.002 per Meg

Yes. Log in to your system and click on Appearance – Blue News Theme Options. In the “Featured Posts Category” section select the post category that you would like to be displayed in the center.

Q: How do I quickly add ads?
The basic way to do this using built-in functionality of the theme is to go to Appearance – Blue News Theme Options and scroll down to Header Banner (468×60 px) and Sidebar 125×125 px Ads sections. (Please upload your banners using Media manager prior to doing this as you will have to provide the links to them).

Q: Can I change the colors of my site?
Please do not make any changes to the colors of your site as it might break some things. We will work with you later after we are done with conversions.

Q: What kind of support will I receive during the actual conversion and after?
We will not be able to provide any support on Tuesday or Wednesday because we will be focusing on moving the sites. We will work with you on Thursday and Friday.

Q: Have the registered readers been converted?
Yes, they are called subscribers in the new system.

Q: Have the subscribers and their expiration dates been converted?
The subscribers have been converted but not their expiration dates. There are no expiration dates in the new system. In the new system this has to be done using s2memeber plugin.

Q: How do I set the publication date and time for a new article?
When a new post is added, there’s a Meta box on the right side called Publish. There a caption there “Publish immediately” right near it there’s the Edit link. Click on it and select the publishing date.

Q: How do I link other related articles on my site to a new article I am creating?

Q: How do you post large photos at top of page?
On the post creating/editing page there is a ”Featured Image” metabox

Use it to add a featured image to your post. In the theme settings page you should select a category, using which the large slider will be populated http://awesomescreenshot.com/0d04u4j16
It will take recent posts from the selected category and display their featured images.

We’ll apply this to your theme later (soon). This only can be done via direct files coding.

If you mean to not include posts from a particular category on the homepage then it can be done via a plugin which we currently don’t have installed and would have to find.

Please use the Constant Contact WordPress widget. You can put it on one of the sidebars and type in your Constant Contact ID inside the widget. It will also allow you to select a few other options from within the widget configuration.

Q: There are no products converted
You have to transfer products manually to the WooCommerce plugin. We can assist you with that.

Q: Some news on our website was from an RSS feed – which is no longer feeding
You need to use the Syndication plugin for that http://awesomescreenshot.com/0454u8l77

Open the post for editing. Look at the top right corner of your page. Click on ‘Screen Options’ this will open up a pull down menu. Put the check mark near Author. This will enable you to assign posts to different users. Scroll all the way down to the Author section. Select your Author from the drop-down menu.

Q: How are events in the new system different from the old one?
The events in your old system had two parts – events and article events. In the new system these are two different things and you should only be working with the Events.

Q: Is there a way to exclude a category from showing on the front page?
Looking for a plugin.

Q: Categories – how do I get them organized the way I used to have them. Having them in alphabetical order is worthless to me. We used to have large sections, i.e.; News and subsections within the section: Local News, National News, etc.
Use collapsing categories widget.

Q: How do I add ADS?
Here’s the manual: http://adrotateplugin.com/page/support/manuals.php

Q: The photos on the landing page don’t coordinate with the posted articles. I see the message: ” To set your featured posts, please go to your theme options page in wp-admin. You can also disable featured posts slideshow if you don’t wish to display them.” So I unclicked them so as to not show anything because when I added new ones on our articles it created large spaces within the articles and the images still didn’t show up in the featured posts anyway.
For the featured slider to show the images properly, it needs to have 5 posts that have those featured images otherwise nothing will display. The key is to have 5 posts with featured images.

Q: I need a place to put the pdf files of our weekly papers. How do I get that?
To do so, go to the Media Section, then click on the Add New link. Follow the steps on the screen. After the file has been uploaded, click on the “Insert into the post” link. This will open a post page, where you’ll be able to add some description text and publish it.

Q: Can I change ownership of a published article?
Yes. Please find the article you wish to change the ownership of. Then navigate to the ‘Screen options’ (top right). Click on it to expand it. From there check ‘Choose author’. Now you will be able to select the desired author from the drop-down list below the article. Don’t forget to save the changes.

Q: Where can I find and set up ad containers?
The Ad container is called the Ad Block in the new system. You can find it in the Manage blocks section of the admin area. You will have to add your ads first and assign them to groups. Then will be able to add groups to Blocks, so that it would show more than one ad in the block at a time. The Group allows only one ad from the group to appear in the area on the website, while a Block allows more than 1.

Q: how to user s2member?
We have two pages:

Now we go to general options and select the login page there and the membership options page. (You have already done that).
We go to Paypal options and configure Paypal parameters (You have done this also).
We then go to Restriction Options and open Category Access Restrictions. Put the Category ID that you want to restrict access to in ‘Categories That Require Level #0 Or Higher:’ The category ID can be taken from the Category page: http://oc180news.com/wp-admin/edit-tags.php?taxonomy=category ID is the last column on the right. We have added 414 as an example and saved the page. Now when a user tries to open this category they will be redirected to ‘my membership options’ page. We set up Education News Releases category to be ‘protected’.

As you probably already know this is what needs to be done with this page:
‘Your Membership Options Page should detail all of the features that come with Membership to your site, and provide a Payment Button for each Level of access you plan to offer. This is also the Page that anyone could be redirected to ( by s2Member ), should they attempt to access an area of your site, which may require access to something they’re NOT currently allowed to view.’

Basically, you should put the payment button on this page with some instructions. The button can be generated on the Paypal buttons page. You should pick the matching type of the button keeping in mind the Level 1 paid access is being used. You will probably use this one: ‘PayPal® Buttons For Level #1 Access’ After you have filled in all fields in Button Code For Level #1: you should click on Generate Button Code which will fill in the text box called WordPress® Shortcode. Copy this code to the My Membership Options page. As a result unauthorized users will see the pay button. This is it for s2member configuration.

Now you have to add access right to the paid members. Go to the users page: http://oc180news.com/wp-admin/users.php and use the search users box (top right corner). When you find the user you want to give access point to the user and click Edit. On the next page user the select option Role: There you have to change from Subscriber to s2member level 1.
Scroll down to s2Member Configuration & Profile Fields and select any additional options you might need. For example: Automatic EOT Time (the end of billing cycle). Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click Update User.
