Kalfa: Most progammers are bad. It’s that simple
Farrey: Because the term ‘programmer’ is too ***ue
Longaker: Hemrich: This might shock you, but most backup plugins do this as well ;
Whillock: That’s the only directory or subdirectory they have permissions for after all
Emerling: I backup to cloud storage now
Molinelli: I used to do that, but I think he means root folder
Piller: Not wp-content/backup
Pelayo: I’ve seen them created left and right
Teramoto: CPanel created $webroot/backup/date.hash.tar.gz files for example
Danchetz: I just pipe the zipping process through ssh, and that means the server doesn’t even need any extra space for the zip file.
Zieske: I think those are very minor things to worry about :
Potratz: Space is afterall really the least of anyone’s concerns nowadays
Dyar: Gapen: I’ve seen those though, and some falsley ***ume the server uses apache and puts a .htaccess file there, even though it’s on nginx.
Diano: Kenshino__: depends on the size of the webpage
Kressin: Nginx will ignore the .htaccess anyway so why does that matter
Maharg: I’ve had to zip 10-20gb large websites, then the database at some gb’s
Husein: I know there are sites much bigger than that
Maymon: Kenshino__: because they use .htaccess to disable access to the folder, with no effect.
Seang: Heh possibly 1. Worked on apache, client got moved by host or whatever and knew nothing
Crouter: Shouldn’t need a plugin for backups though. Just setup a cronjob and done
Newbill: Not if the plugin does everything for you
Kazin: And not everyone is a programmer
Bartolone: They should hire one ;
Angolo: And there is an awful lot of programmers who doesn’t even know what a cronjob is
Livley: Let alone how to use linux and setup a development server
Seaborn: Lol. to me that’s really web developers that have to know what that is
Lueckenbach: Yeah, I thought the same too.
Sparaco: I’d reckon Java developers would laugh at web developers for not knowing what Swing is
Sharpes: Then we laug hat Java devs . because java xD
Longsdorf: I remember swing, I believe I used that a long time ago, my first test with gui if I remember correctly
Huhtasaari: Kenshino__: But I know you’ve probably complained a lot about plugins coded so horribly you just wanted to rewrite the entire thing.
Kurdyla: Either it is just me, or I have to fix an awful lot of bugs in pre-made plugins. Stuff which is broken in the logic of the code.
Bumpers: I’m not saying all plugins are broken though :
Ohms: I rarely use plugins actually
Sempek: I write my plugins and/or I only use essentials like WordPress SEO
Mulryan: Wishlist is one of the plugins we use on wordpress, and woocommerce
Pacitti: If I use a plugin, it’s usually one of those really well developed with proper filters and stuff
Branchaud: Even though we recommend the clients to use joomla for a large site which requires good ACL. they still want wordpress
Yankey: The WooCommerce Wishlist one is good from WooThemes
Takeuchi: The Yith one is so – so
Hamic: Wishlist has a bug when it comes to custom post types. and the bug was reported by me a few months ago, they acknowledged it. But never implemented the fix. The latest version still requires manual fixing. If I remember correctly it is the option to automatically “lock” a new post if it is a custom post type.
Kranze: The weird thing is that the technical support couldn’t figure out why it didn’t work. so I decided to debug.
Traff: They should know their own code.
Barfield: How can i create 3d pie chart
