We have some exciting changes to announce at tangerinemoons! As of April 1, 2019, we’ll be upgrading our WordPress maintenance plans to further secure and monitor your WordPress website!

With the daily occurrence of website hacking and programming vulnerabilities, security is extremely important for every website owner. Every day, we see attempts on the sites we maintain by hackers trying to gain access. With this in mind, we have introduced our security threat monitoring, detection and malware removal to ALL of our maintenance plans. See below for further details.

Basic Maintenance and Support Plan is now Lite Plan.

Great for bloggers and personal websites that only need the essentials: security, backups and updates.

Standard Maintenance and Support Plan remains Standard Plan.

Perfect for websites with requirements beyond the basics, including website availability checks. We’ve added 30 minutes of content changes to the existing plan in addition to detailed monthly reporting for backups, maintenance and security.

Premium Maintenance and Support Plan remains Premium Plan.

Perfect for websites with requirements beyond the Standard Plan, including monthly database optimization, performance checks and more frequent offsite backups. Increase in monthly support from 1 hour to 2 hours.

Pro Maintenance and Support Plan remains Pro Plan.

Even more monthly support! An increase from 2 hours to 3 hours make this plan essential for robust, complex websites.

Visit our WordPress Maintenance Plans page for further details on the features and pricing for our plans.

Modern Tribe The Event Calendar WordPress Plugin

First, I need to state a disclaimer.

I have been using the Modern Tribes Event Calendar WordPress plugin, both the free and the Pro version, for many sites. I’ve also used the W3 Total Cache plugin on many sites, and it’s a great plugin for being able to enable and disable certain aspects of the performance.

However, I recently noticed an issue when hovering over an event on the calendar monthly view, instead of displaying the normal popup window for the details of the event, it would increase the font size of the event title and insert some code. (see below)

After several troubleshooting steps with WordPress plugin disables and enables, I discovered the issue was caused by a conflict with the W3 Total Cache WordPress plugin.

I continued troubleshooting and found the issue to be the enabling of the JS minification.

So, to save you some time, I’ll jump to how the settings should be set for W3 Total Cache in order for the two plugins to work with each other, if Minify is enabled from the General Settings tab:

  1. On the General tab > Minify section, select “Manual” instead of “Auto”
  2. On the Minify tab > HTML & XML section, uncheck the “Inline JS minification” checkbox.

I recently had someone approach me with a small issue with trying to post a slideshow of photos within WordPress. The catch was that we needed to do it without using a plugin(as this is a multi-user installation and the user didn’t have access to install plug-ins.)  They also had maxed out there space on their Flickr account.

So, going through several different scenarios, I found the following to be the best solution – a Picasa Album Slideshow. The following embed code can be used:

You will need to edit the code to enter your specific userid and albumid which can be retrieved from the Picasa Album URL.
