WordPress: Super useful WP-config tips

WordPress: Super useful WP-config tips

WordPress: Super useful WP-config tips

The wp-config.php file is the heart of your WordPress website, where you can define a wide variety of options to control how your WordPress install works. Today, I’m sharing with you a list of super easy tips to take more control of your site using wp-config.php.

Keeping your database and site size small

On large websites, keeping your database small in size can be a challenge. WordPress tends to store a lot of data in your db, like transients or post revisions.

You can easily limit post revisions to a number of your choice (3 in this example) by adding the following in your wp-config.php file:

define('WP_POST_REVISIONS', 3);

If you don’t feel like using the post revision feature at all, you can simply disable it:

define( 'WP_POST_REVISIONS', false );

Also, WordPress stores in the database posts, pages, attachments and comments which have been moved to trash. You can control the number of days it will stay in the trash before being completely deleted. The default is set to 30, but I’ve set it to 1 in this example.

define( 'EMPTY_TRASH_DAYS', 1 );

By default, WordPress creates a new set of images every time you edit an image and when you restore the original, it leaves all the edits on the server. Defining IMAGE_EDIT_OVERWRITE as true changes this behavior.

define( 'IMAGE_EDIT_OVERWRITE', true );

Security

If your web hosting plan supports SSL, you should definitely use that feature to add an extra layer of security to your site. Via wp-config.php, WordPress makes it easy to force SSL logins:

define('FORCE_SSL_LOGIN', true);

And same goes with the admin area of your site:

define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true);

Secret keys are making your site harder to hack by adding random elements to the password. There are currently 4 secret keys and 4 salts that can be defined. To generate unique and secure secret keys, just use this handy generator. Don’t use those below!

define( 'AUTH_KEY',         't`DK%X:oxy|e-Z(BXb/f(Ur`8#~UzUQG-^_Cs_GHs5U-&Wb?pgn^p8(2@}IcnCa|' );
define( 'SECURE_AUTH_KEY',  'D&ovlU#|CvJ##uNq}bel+^MFtT&.b9{UvR]g%ixsXhGlRJ7q!h}XWdEC[BOKXssj' );
define( 'LOGGED_IN_KEY',    'MGKi8Br(&{H*~&0s;{k0tS(O:+f#WM+q|npJ-+P;RDKT:~jrmgj#/-,[hOBk!ry^' );
define( 'NONCE_KEY',        'FIsAsXJKL5ZlQo)iD-pt??eUbdc{_Cn)4!d~yqz))&B D?AwK%)+)F2aNwI|siOe' );
define( 'AUTH_SALT',        '7T-!^i!0,w)L#JK@pc2{8XE[DenYI^BVf{L:jvF,hf}zBf883td6D;Vcy8,S)-&G' );
define( 'SECURE_AUTH_SALT', 'I6`V|mDZq21-J|ihb u^q0F }F_NUcy`l,=obGtq*p#Ybe4a31R,r=|n#=]@]c #' );
define( 'LOGGED_IN_SALT',   'wu$4c$Hmd%/*]`Oom_(hdXW|0M=X={we6;Mpvtg+V.ol$|#_}qG(GaVDEsn,~*4i' );
define( 'NONCE_SALT',       'a|#h{c5|P &xWs4IZ20c2&%4!c(/uG}W:mAvyjI44`jAbup]t=]V7`}.py(wTP%%' );

For client sites

When using WordPress to build a site for a client, a developer is almost all the time concerned that the client won’t do something stupid to the site, requiring a lot of maintenance.

One common thing is a client trying to edit one of the site php files and ending up deleting something important, causing the website to be unavailable. You can actually prevent this to happen by disabling the built-in files editor in wp-config.php:

define('DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT', true);

Another “classic” client mistake is to never update the WordPress core, which leads to potential security breaches. You can force WordPress to update itself automatically by using the WP_AUTO_UPDATE_COREconstant in your wp-config.php file.

define('WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE', true);

FTP

If your WordPress install prompts you to fill in your FTP credentials each time you need to update a plugin, you can actually save a lot of time by using wp-config.php to memorize it. The three constants below will tell WordPress what are your FTP host, username and password. That way, you won’t have to submit the info each time.

define('FTP_HOST', 'ftp.yoursite.com');
define('FTP_USER', 'Your_FTP_Username');
define('FTP_PASS', 'Your_FTP_password');

Most quality hosting companies provide SSL to their clients. If your host does, make sure you turn SSL FTP connections on for some extra security.

define('FTP_SSL', true);

Debugging

When your website is unavailable or behaves strangely, you can make your maintenance work way easier by using wp-config.php and the debugging constants.

Enabling WP_DEBUG will cause all PHP errors, notices and warnings to be displayed.

define('WP_DEBUG', true);

As errors will be displayed on the site and accessible to visitors, a way more elegant way to debug is to use a log. Doing so in WordPress is easy: Once you have set WP_DEBUG to true, you can use WP_DEBUG_LOG, a constant that will make WordPress send all PHP errors and warning into a log located in your wp-content directory.

define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true );

If your database is broken, you can actually repair it easily by accessing the script located at /wp-admin/maint/repair.php after setting WP_ALLOW_REPAIR to true:

define( 'WP_ALLOW_REPAIR', true );

Please note that those constants are intended to be used only when debugging a site. Once you found and fixed the problem, remember to set the values to false!

Performance

The wp-config.php file allows some tweaking to ensure a better performance by WordPress. One thing to start with is to increase the maximum memory allocated. Please note that this won’t work if your hosting provider limits the memory, which is often the case on shared hosting.
If you’re looking for a quality web host, I recommend VidahostWP Engine or InMotion Hosting.

define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '96M');

You can also allow even more memory to administrative tasks (which requires more memory than just browsing the blog):

define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M' );

WordPress has a built-in caching system, located in wp-content/advanced-cache.php. It can be activated using the WP_CACHE constant:

define( 'WP_CACHE', true );

After school program – recreational vs. educational

After school program – recreational vs. educational

So, your child is beginning to get restless and make you restless. He has got more time than is good for him, and you are now considering after school programs – anything that will keep him busy for a few life-saving hours! Most after school activities can be broadly classified into three – recreational, educational and society-oriented. The last bit usually comes in when your child is already a bit grown up and can voice his own interests.

Educational activities aim at furthering the knowledge of your child. His general awareness, his understanding and his memory are targeted and he is given various techniques that will help him improve one or all of these. Programs such as intensive memory training and speed mathematics are educational after school activities. There are academic programs that will go over your child’s homework and class work and help the child gain more in-depth knowledge in the various subjects. Thus academic programs have a definite edge over the fun and games, especially if parents feel that their child has a lot of catching up to do.

Recreational activities include sports and games, fine arts, painting etc. The main thrust here is to have fun. Of course, classes become more competitive as the child climbs up the ladder. Many sport events, competitions, stage performances etc are held to encourage the child.

When we compare the merits of the two kinds of activities, I believe that the recreational programs have more meat. Firstly, children do not enjoy learning unless they themselves feel curious about something. Most academic programs are standardized courses that are not too flexible. They have a general purpose and a well laid out methodology. After a number of hours at school, the child may feel bored. Further study may overwhelm him and make him feel frustrated. Burnout is very much a possibility here.

Recreational programs provide a welcome break from the monotony of learning and studies. The mental challenge and the physical exertion make the child feel a renewed zest and a pleasant sense of fulfillment. Group activity teaches him social skills, discipline and patience. It is a proven fact that children involved in extra curricular activities get better grades than others. Sometimes closing the textbooks and playing a game may be the best way to handle your studies.

Whatever program you choose for your child, regular evaluation is the key to success. You will have to measure the child’s progress. If progress is unsatisfactory, shift your child out of the program. The child should also have the freedom to reject an activity if and when he feels bored with it. Generally, programs that combine the educational with the recreational are best suited especially for younger children. This way, children can have fun while they learn.

ADHD refers to attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder. Most children who
suffer from this disorder suffer from attention problems as well as hyperactivity. Parents of such children are well aware that inattention and hyperactivity continue throughout the day. Keeping such children busy after school hours can be as difficult as keeping them safe during the school day.

The first step while choosing the right after school activity for your child is to understand how ADHD affects him. Is your child interested in sports? Is he put off by the fierce competitiveness, or does he find it hard to get along with teammates? Does your child vocalize his feelings, or is communication a problem?

For a child suffering from ADHD, physical exercise is always beneficial. Exercise takes up the extra energy and helps to stimulate the brain. Team activities teach social skills and discipline. But, if your child shies away from team sports, you may want to look at activities like dancing, cycling, swimming or gymnastics. Martial arts not only teach techniques of self-defense but also teach self-control and patience.

If your child shows aversion to sport and shows inclination towards the fine arts, you may need to look at some other options. Acting classes are a wonderful form of creative exercise. It also provides the child with ample opportunity to develop his social skills. Music, art or dance can help the child to keep himself busy and entertained.

In case the child is not interested in any of the above, you may want him to join a Boy Scouts club or other community oriented clubs that take up social work. Cleaning a park, putting on a show, helping out in an old age home are various activities that may pique your child’s interest.

Whatever form of activity you choose, make sure that you monitor your child’s progress periodically. If you feel that there is no progress, you may need to change the activity. Anything that increases your child’s self-esteem is good. You may enlist the help of the coach or teacher to assess your child’s development.

There are certain activities that are detrimental to a child suffering from ADHD. Computer and video games are a definite NO. Since these games need no interaction, children will feel all the more isolated. These children also find it difficult to distinguish between the good and the bad messages. They may therefore show an inclination to stick to messages that are not needed. Games that need the child to sit and wait for his turn patiently tax his patience and will not be a success.

Although you would want these children to be as near to normal as possible, understanding their needs and limits will help you select the right after school activity – one that is fulfilling, tiring as well as challenging.

After school activities for the overweight

After school activities for the overweight

Research and studies show that our children are growing fater by the
day. Many families all over America are struggling to keep the weight of
their children within reasonable limits. As a parent, I know that it’s
nearly impossible for me to look into the tear-filled eyes of my son and
refuse food.

So, what’s the alternative? Studies show that the number one reason for
obesity in children is not junk food and colas. It’s actually TV.
Children tend to plop themselves on the sofa and munch away happily when
they are in front of the TV sets. But, once the set is off, their natural
buoyancy will lead the children to do stuff and to move their body. THey will then be diverted from eating.

Recreational after school activities are a must if you feel that your
child is beginning to put on undesirable fat. It is better to begin these
activities as early as possible. The more weight the child gains, the
harder he has to work to shed it. Football, swimming, skating and Karate
are just some activities he can participate in. Structured and disciplined
exercise is possible only when one is put into a formal environment. That
is why an overweight child simply HAS to be put into an after school
program of this kind.
