As I was testing on mij localhost (using MAMP) I run into trouble while permanently deleting several hundred products from my Trash.
Instead of using WordPress interface I decided to user MyPhPAdmin to do this. Whereas WordPress gave and timeout when only selecting a few products, via SQL the job was doen in less than 3 seconds.
Here’s the Code snippet:
LEFT JOIN wp_term_relationships ON ( wp_posts.ID = wp_term_relationships.object_id )
LEFT JOIN wp_postmeta ON ( wp_posts.ID = wp_postmeta.post_id )
LEFT JOIN wp_term_taxonomy ON ( wp_term_taxonomy.term_taxonomy_id = wp_term_relationships.term_taxonomy_id )
I got an email from my hosting provider that I was exceeding my wordpress database space of 1000MB, which I thought was very strange. Had 2 dabases in which I each imported content of about 50MB (gzip format). I could not find the actual database size so I did some digging around and found the SQL code below which does the trick:
SELECT table_schema "Data Base Name",
sum( data_length + index_length ) / 1024 / 1024 "Data Base Size in MB"
FROM information_schema.TABLES GROUP BY table_schema ;

Avoid Ugly Image presentation
One of the easiest ways to make your website more actractive is using a ‘lightbox’ for displaying images. Default action for imanges is to desplay them just plain in the browser. This is not only a ugly presentation but it is also user unfriendly.
On my main website I’ve actually been using this bad presentation for far to long, reason for this is that I didn’t not know better, or actually didn’t know how easy the solution could be.
There are several (good) plugins available which will do the trick. I tried 3 of them: Continue reading Using Lightbox to display Images →

The solution turns out pretty easy:
- Go to the Jetpack page in your dashboard.
- Click on the Debug link appearing at the bottom of the page.
- Click the link that says “click here to contact Jetpack support.”
- Fill in the description box and your name and email address.
- Click the “Contact Support” button.

While monitoring Stats of my websites wp-admin/admin-ajax.php was always on top of the list of most requested pages which made me wonder, Why is there so much activity from the wp-admin/ folder?

If you have a product in categorie X, Y and Z for instance, and you navigate to the product from within the catogory Z, your breadcrumbs probably will display Category X.
This is very confusing for customers and even can result in loss of a sale! Continue reading Wrong Woocommerce Breadcrumb for Products in Multiple Categories →
Webfonts are great! With a new WordPress theme I’m setting up a lot of webfonts are predefined, 661 to be exact! So if you don’t know which exact font you need / want it’s hard to find the right font when there is no preview available, which in no theme I’m currently working with is the case (are there any?).
