Lokan: Little do they know “seo” means: 1. write/create great content people want. 2. organise it well. 3. don’t cheat ;
Lokan: I gave up with one place because they have unrealistic goals of insta-proft
Lokan: They’ve now been through 4 “seo” people
Lokan: And they went back to how i had it.
Lokan: I maintained full control while people fussed and mussed about, changing what the last person had to some other wild idea
Gieseking: Oh yeah, seen all that before – “We’ll just get loads of folk in india to go out and spam blocks with links. ? profit!”
Lokan: Providing them with confusing/obfuscated “reports” and graphs
Lokan: They paid one company $5k for a “synopsis” of their niche
Lokan: It was like 100 pages long, looked like someone spent the day photocopying all sorts of nifty figures
Lokan: Probably lotto numbers mixed with dungeons and dragons lore.
Lokan: 95% of “seo” people have a single bottle they dip from, called “snake oil”
Lokan: All that said, there’s a few good 301 redirect manager plugins
Lokan: I’d personally just construct the site in a logical, human readable way, then install something that tells you the actual 404’s that are being hit and redirect each one as appropriate
Qin: Am I crazy or does wordpress no longer add id=’jquery’ to the jquery script anymore, and I can no-longer remove it from my template?
Lokan: The first few days would be the worst of it, then it’s just a few straggling links a day until the legitimate 404’s stop trickling in
Gilding: I am using wordpress 4.2

Kendrix: I am going to fine wordpress for wasting my time.
Lokan: Blaming wordpress is like blaming a rock. or the air, or the internet.
Arbuthnot: Hey all, I’m using this Dynamic Featured Image plugin but I don’t think that’s the source of my issue since others are using it well. I have the following block of code http://pastebin.com/09bQ6gqk but it seems to duplicate my image path for some reason and it breaks the images for instance it will put www.website.com/path/to/image/path/to/image/asdf.png
Mansi: Any help would be amazing, I cannot figure this out
Save: So I’m just setting up a dev site on my local machine. I have just finished extracting wordpress to it’s own directory under /var/www/website and need to visit the front end to complete the installation. I go to my localhost and it’s just the apache server page! Whats my next step to be able to access wordpress? Some kinda apache configuration?
Lokan: Midoshi27: yep, #httpd

Retzloff: There’s gotta be some kind of protected mode or something
Guardipee: What is the currently best slider plugin. I know I can google, but that will not bring the testing experience of a good slider, so I ask here.
Gabehart: Where you have to mess with things deep within wordpress to break access to it in its specified patterns
Dilbert: Basically you have to make it _not_ wordpress
Mays: Kamuela, you can do that, basically lock down the admin side.
Lokan: Lagory: no such thing.
Carmin: LatoSans: unfortunately that can’t be done before I have to fix it :
Fonteboa: Yeah, then you get the constant pestering from the mess creators asking, “Why can’t I do _______?” lol
