WordPress Upgrade Warning!!!!!

  • If you’re running a version of WordPress lower than v5.0, make absolutely certain that your Web host is running PHP v5.6, or newer, before upgrading to WordPress v5.x.
  • Make sure to do a full offline backup of your site, including the database and configuration files, before upgrading WordPress v5.x.
  • After upgrading to WordPress 5.x, make sure to also upgrade to PHP v7.3 or newer.

Security

Make sure to update all themes, plugins, and of course, the WordPress core regularly. You should check for updates at least, once per week. Wordfence can be configured to send you e-mails when it detects that updates are available.

Backup/Restore/Move

Important! The backup process is not complete until, you’ve successfully completed a restore, and verified that all of the data and parameters were correctly restored.

  • All-in-One WP Migration by ServMask
    This plugin exports your WordPress website including the database, media files, plugins and themes.
    • The community version is limited to 512MB for imports.
    • To import backups, that are less than 512MB, use the All-in-One WP Migration File Extension, as some hosts limit the size of uploads, and the File Extension splits the file into chunks to get around file size limitations.
    • To import backups that are larger than 512MB you’ll need the All-in-One WP Migration Unlimited Extension for $64 (Lifetime license with lifetime updates).

Page Builders, Blocks, Layouts

  • Elementor Page Builder
  • Beaver Builder
  • TablePress allows you to create and manage tables in the admin area of WordPress. Tables may contain text, numbers and even HTML (e.g. to include images or links). You can then show the tables in your posts, on your pages, or in text widgets by using a Shortcode. If you want to show your tables anywhere else in your theme, you can use a Template Tag function.
