Mark Rothschild Project – LoveYourLife – May-June 2024

Good morning Mark, to pay please click the ‘Pay Now’ button below and follow the prompts. Thank you.

Work Done in This Project

Good morning Mark,

ASTRA THEME UPDATED

The Astra Theme was updated. Two themes were deleted. On 2 themes will be used: Astra Theme (active) and Twenty Twenty-Four (as backup).

https://loveyourlife.co.za/wp/wp-admin/themes.php

PLUGINS

All the plugins are now on ‘auto-update’.

I have disabled ‘MailPoet’. ‘MailChimp’ is a much better option should you one day wish to send Newsletters to your clients.

We will in time have to go back to Jetpack’s settings but not now.

Akismet – once we sort out the settings on ‘Jetpack’ then ‘Akismet’ can easily be activated.

https://loveyourlife.co.za/wp/wp-admin/plugins.php

Going forward Mike, whenever you install and activate a new plugin rembere to enable ‘auto-update’ of that plugin.

Thanks. Have a great evening.

SITE TITLE: ‘LOVE YOUR LIFE’ DELETED

The site Title ‘Love Your Life” was deleted.

Head Builder > Elements > Site Title & Logo > General > Site Title

https://loveyourlife.co.za/wp/wp-admin/customize.php?return=%2Fwp%2Fwp-admin%2Fedit.php%3Fpost_type%3Dwp_block

THE LOGO SHOULD BE REDUCED TO ABOUT 75% OF THE CURRENT SIZE

The current logo 1477 x 408 px was used. The logo width was reduced to 238px.

https://loveyourlife.co.za/wp/wp-admin/customize.php?return=%2Fwp%2Fwp-admin%2Fedit.php%3Fpost_type%3Dwp_block

You can view the homepage here: https://loveyourlife.co.za/

Mark, you have the free Astra theme whick already offers many (many!) free features. You won’t be able to do much more on the free theme as far as playing around with the logo, spacing, etc… Keep in mind that if you add more items to the menu, you will end up having a 2nd line added to the menu.

SIDEBAR – SITE SEARCH

Sidebar width: 25%

https://loveyourlife.co.za/wp/wp-admin/customize.php?return=%2Fwp%2Fwp-admin%2F

Site search:

Toggle search label

Change button position: Button only

Display settings: 663 px

“Posts” and “Comments” have no input options for readers to use, to give such feedback

This can only be fixed once I give you training on Jetpack. Mark you will have to mae a separate booking for this once this project is finalised. The Training should take a max of 1 hour.

I added a comment block on the homepage and left a comment. This comment is already displaying under widgets on the right sidebar. But as already stated we will have to reset Jetpack settings at a later stage. For now we shall leave things as they are.

“Categories” is redundant and should be removed

The Categories widget has been removed.

HOME PAGE

The link https://loveyourlife.co.za/  takes you to the Home Page

The link https://loveyourlife.co.za/  takes you to the Home Page. This is good.

The header “Home” needs to disappear

The title of the homepage has been hidden.

The content “A BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE LOVE YOUR LIFE COURSES” should be moved to the “Courses” page in WooCommerce

I will see what can be done to this page when I deal with your WooCommerce.

NEWS PAGE

The link: https://loveyourlife.co.za/news/  takes you to page with a different and incorrect Menu.

Mark, you cannot write anything on a Blogs or Posts’s page. A ‘Blogs’ or ‘Posts’ page is a page for your blogs (or posts) ONLY!

So on your Menu you now have a:

‘News’ page: https://loveyourlife.co.za/news/ and a

‘Blogs’ page: https://loveyourlife.co.za/blogs/ 

Both pages are working well. I just created 2 very basic blog posts to show you how they display on your new ‘Blogs’ page.

‘About Us’page: https://loveyourlife.co.za/about-us/ 

I had to create an ‘About Us’ page and have it replace the ‘About’ page due to the fact that on my Google Chrome browser the ‘About’ page was displaying well but it was mis-directing me to an old page of yours on both Microsoft Edge as well as on Mozilla Firefox browser. There are various possible reasons for this including how many cookies one has on a browser, an URL from your previous work on loveyourlife, etc…

Mark, please note that if your menu is displaying ‘About’ instead of ‘About Us’ it means that your bowser is not desplaying the updated menu of your website. Your browser will eventually refresh but it can take days… My Google Chrome browser refreshes fast (most times) but not always. This is why deleteing cookies every so often is beneficial.

So Mark, a bit of work was done today. This week and possibly until mid week next week I happen to have a number of urgent responsibilities to attend to including a visit to my GP tomorrow, a visit to Discovery Head Office, a consult with Dr. Sofianos (gastro surgeon), renewal of my Driver’s, renewal of my Tazz licence, etc… Incredible how so many things are all hapenning in a space of 2 weeks.

I won’t be going to gym this Sunday (did not go to gym yesterday either to work on your project) and this means that notwithstanding the little work I will be doing for you during the course of the week I will be working full time for you on this project this Saturday and Sunday.

Keep well,

2024-05-14

Good evening Mark,

Trust you arekeeping well?

The following pages have been updated:

Home

News

Blogs (obviously you will have to create your own Blogs)

About Us

Reviews

I hardly spent anytime on this project and the probability is high that I will only be able to resume work on Saturday.

Keep well,

2024-05-16

Good afternoon Mark, trust that you and Nikki are keeping well?

I had an opening this afternoon, and therefore I was able to do a bit of work on your website��

PRIVATE POLICY

Please note that the page ‘Private Policy’ has been updated: https://loveyourlife.co.za/privacy-policy-2/ 

CONTACT US PAGE

The ‘Contact Us’ Page has been updated: https://loveyourlife.co.za/contact-us/ 

PLEASE NOTE: Mark, your ‘Contact Us’ page looks good. However you can improve on it further by adding a ‘Contact’ Form. One can easily do that if one has ‘Jetpack’.  Jetpack can easily be configured BUT you need to have your logins details to your WordPress.com.

HOMEWORK

Mark, have you registered on wordpress.com? You must have done it at sometime (I assume). See if you can find the login details:

I ) email address and

Ii) password

For your wordpress.com. If  you haven’t than you will have to register on wordpress.com next time you and I have a Zoom session.

I will resume work on your website on Saturday. Have a good evening and a good Friday.

Cheers,

2024-05-18

JETPACK

Jetpack has been installed and setup. Jetpack gives you with a number of useful features. I am very pleased with the fact that ‘Comments’ are now properly setup as well.

AKISMET

AKISMET has been installed and setup (no Comment spam going forward).

The menu has been updated to include the ‘Shop’ page, etc… Going forward we can edit all the new pages as well as content and the menu.

Mark, the work done so far is R1500,00. Once you make this payment and should you wish me to complete your website I will be able to provide you with a quote. I will work on Saturday the 25th and then complete the following week. I am fully booked Monday 20th – Friday 24th.

Trust you like the work so far. Kind regards,

2024-05-21

Cheers,

Good evening Mark,

COLLOCATIONS

The reason I messaged you early this afternoon was because you have usee both ‘Collocations’ and ‘Colocations’ on the work you sent me. I actually did not notice the work ‘colocations’ (one L) until today.

As you know the correct spelling is ‘collocations’.

collocations, in collocation, n.

Linguistics. The habitual juxtaposition or association, in the sentences of a language, of a particular word with other particular words; a group of…

Oxford English Dictionary: https://www.oed.com/search/dictionary/?scope=Entries&q=collocations 

I am pleased this is the case as changing all the words to ‘colocation’ would have been a big job.

INSERTING A BUTTON TO YOUR PDF FILES – WPCode Lite

I spent the entire afternoon trying different plugins and different code. To insert a PDF button to WordPress is super easy but to inset a PDF button to a WooCommerce product page is difficult.

To cut a long story short I have now added ‘Gutenberg’ to WooCommerce. This had to be done via a plugin ‘WPCode Lite’ plus code. Tricky!!!!

The bottom of the page I inserted the button to looks ugly. Don’t worry about it. I will fix it on Saturday (I will be away from my desk all day tomorrow).

Have a good evening,

2024-06-04

Good evening Mark,

I trust you are keeping well. Mark, will you please have a look at your ‘Shop – Add to Basket’ page. When the page opens, scroll down the page. Those are the only 2 download buttons possible at this stage. If you need something different you will have to go to someone who does a lot of code for the changes (but it won’t be cheap).

I like the buttons as they are. You can chose between the 1st row  or the 2nd row of buttons:

https://loveyourlife.co.za/product/welcome-to-the-world-of-collocations

I will have a look at you reply in the morning.

Keep warm and have a good night.

2024-06-05

Good afternoon Mark,

I have updated the course page ‘Welcome to the World of Collocations – Mastering the Art of Word Partnerships’. It looks much better:

https://loveyourlife.co.za/product/welcome-to-the-world-of-collocations

If I were you Mark, I would remove the entire section on ‘What are the 7 Types of Collocations?’. If I was trying to learn English or any other language and while reading the material I came across ‘adverbs + adjectives’ etc… it would immediately put me off the course. I know that you are tryig to give a detailed presentation to potential students but, in my opinion, it is TOO MUCH – kinda frightening. Anyway just my opinion.

I am going to have breakfast (I do realise it is a bit late for breakfast…) and I will communicate with you after 3pm.

Cheers,

Hello Mark, the section ‘What are the 7 Types of Collocations?’ has been removed.

https://loveyourlife.co.za/product/welcome-to-the-world-of-collocations

Let me try the zero priced items.

I have tested the downloads. They are working well. I recommend you also test them.

PDFs

Mark, your PDFs need editing because they state:

‘Please go aheAd with your registration…’

‘Click here to continue’

You will have to edit your PDFs to make them clickable. I can try and do this for you but I would have to search how that is done and this will be time and I would have to charge you for it. I suggest you do that yourself.
