WordPress Information

To install this theme you must have a working version of WordPress already installed. If you need help installing WordPress, follow the instructions in WordPress Codex or you can watch the Instructional Video created by Woo Themes. Below are all the useful links for WordPress information.

Requirements For Eventme

To use Eventme, you must be running WordPress 3.1 or higher, PHP5 or higher, and mysql 5 or higher. We have tested it with Mac, Windows and Linux. Below are a list of items you should ensure your host can comply with.

  • Check to ensure that your web host has the minimum requirements to run WordPress.
  • Always make sure they are running the latest version of WordPress
  • You can download the latest release of WordPress from official WordPress website
  • Always create secure passwords FTP and Database
Hosting is more secure when PHP applications, like WordPress, are run using your account’s username instead of the server’s default shared username (www or www-data). The most common way for hosting companies to do this is using suPHP. Just ask your potential host if they run suPHP or something similar.

We recommend using WpEngine.com or A Small Orange for all your hosting needs.

Make your site run faster

Get a good hosting You may not think that this is important, but if you want your site to display really fast you need to get a good hosting. This is the first step in having a fast site, which also translates into more views, which also translates into a better SEO, which finally translates into more sales. (affiliate links below) There are three hosting companies which i recommend:

  • Media Temple: http://mediatemple.net - if you want a premium WordPress hosting which is easy to manage and works pretty well, this is a good choice to host your website on.
  • A Small Orange: http://asmallorange.com - this is another good hosting company, which i’m currently using to host my theme demos on. If you bought this theme you probably liked the speed as well, so i highly recommend ASO to host your themes on (especially the Cloud VPS option).
  • WPEngine: http://wpengine.com - definitely not as cheap as the two examples above, but if you really want an incredibly fast website and absolutely no headaches in managing it, WPEngine is the way to go. With it you don’t have to worry about security, caching, updates, etc. Everything is handled by a great theme of professionals ready to help you with everything. You just need to care about your content.

Optimize images

Always optimize/compress your jpeg images before uploading them to the server. Large images should be compressed at around 90% image quality and you should also try to limit the use of lossless image files (uncompressed pngs).


Use a caching plugin

I can’t recommend enough the necessitiy go good caching. If you use a managed hosting such as WPEngine you don’t need this. But if you are using ASO or MT or any other hosting you need to cache your content. For this purpose, i recommend W3 Total Cache! It’s a great and easy to use plugin, and with only a bit of work you can double your site’s speed. See this ticket for more info on how to configure this plugin: http://rubenbristian.ticksy.com/ticket/119133

Configuring WPML

WPML consists of several modules. The basic module turns WordPress sites multilingual. Other modules help with an enhanced translation process, string translation, media translation and other functions.

You can learn about the different modules in the WPML Core and Addons page.

After you enable WPML, you’ll see a Multilingual Widget in the Admin Dashboard. This widget provides access to the different functions in WPML. You can also access them through the WPML menu.

  • Languages – Determine the site’s languages and control how different language contents are organized.
  • Theme and plugins localization – Choose between the traditional .mo files or using WPML’s String Translation.
  • Navigation – Control the appearance of site-wide navigation based on WordPress pages.
  • Sticky links – This is an essential function for running full websites with WordPress. It guarantees that links between pages can never break.

 

Translating Site Content

 

WPML creates different posts, pages and custom types for translations and connects them together. This means that every page has its own title, body and meta-fields.

WPML offers two ways for translating content:

  • Manually, by clicking on the + icons
  • Using WPML’s Translation Management module

Translation Dashboard

 

Learn how to translate posts, pages and custom data types in - translating your content. You can also translate post categories and custom taxonomies.

Most WordPress sites contain texts outside of posts. WPML translates these texts using the String Translation module.

To display image galleries in translated content, you should use WPML Media. It will allow you to connect the same media files to content in different languages.

 

Advanced Translation

Once you’ve translated the site’s content and general strings, you might be interested in translating the site’s navigation and using localized permalinks.
