Securely Share Login Details

If you want us to log into your site to assist with an issue then emailing the password is not the safest practice. There are better ways to do it.

  • Never send a password by email.
  • Never send us your own login details. Create a new temporary account instead.
  • Always delete the temporary account when we’re done helping you.
  • Make a full website backup before we work on it.

Add temporary WordPress admin access

WordPress provides a way for you to give us admin access without emailing a password.

  1. Go to Users > Add New in the WordPress dashboard to create a temporary account for us.
  2. Use ujsoftware for Username.
  3. Use info@ujsoftware.com for Email.
  4. Use UJ Software for First Name.
  5. Leave Send User Notification checked.
  6. Choose Administrator for Role.
  7. Check 2FA Grace Period (if this field is on your form)
  8. Click Add New User then tell us you’ve made an account for us (don’t send the password).
  9. Make a reminder to delete this account when we’re done helping you.
add new temporary admin user menu

WordPress will email us a link that we can click to choose a new password. This way the password itself is never sent via email. The link will expire and we will not store the password. Instead, we’ll log in and choose “Remember Me”. You’ll then delete the account when we’re done.

Contacts

Upload and Crop Images

The video demonstrates how to upload images and crop square thumbnails for the contact image. The image must be square and at least 150 by 150 pixels, or the circular cutout will look elliptical.

Enter Contacts

The video shows how to enter a new contact with the custom posts. All fields, except for the name, are optional. The category “Contacts” and a menu order gets assigned to display these contacts in a predetermined order.

Layout samples

The custom contacts posts can be displayed in several layouts. Below are four sample layouts: Card, vertical card, round image, and raised image.

Displaying Custom Post Types

We use the Display Posts plugin to query and display our custom post types in WordPress. The plugin selects the posts by any combination of type, status, category, tag, meta key, or search query and sorts them by date, title, menu order, or meta value – to name just the most important ones. Open, close, and output filters allow full control over the output.

This shortcode displays all FAQs with the category ‘general’ ordered by the menu order in an accordion. The message “No FAQs at this time” is shown in case the selection has no results.

[display-posts post_type="faq" category="general" no_posts_message="No FAQs at this time" wrapper="accordion"]

General Display Posts Query and Display Parameters

The following parameters are common for all custom post types. In general, all parameters listed in the display-posts documentation can be used but our custom post types extend or override some of them. Only those differences are listed here.

post_type
Specify which post type to use. You can use a default one (post or page), or a custom post type you’ve created.
Default: post
Options include: alert, booking, contact, event, faq, fundraiser, news, testimonial
Example: [display-posts post_type="event"]

wrapper_id
Specify a unique ID to be used on the wrapper of this listing.
Default: empty
Note: The wrapper_id is ignored on accordion and carousel wrappers because the plugin must generate its own ID.
Example: [display-posts category="cars" wrapper_id="cars-listing"]

posts_per_page
How many posts to display.
Default: -1 (list all posts)
Example: [display-posts posts_per_page="5"]

order
Specify whether posts are ordered in descending order (DESC) or ascending order (ASC).
Default: ASC
Example: [display-posts order="DESC"]

orderby
Specify what the posts are ordered by.
Default: menu_order
Options include: date, modified, rand, comment_count, menu_order, ID, author, title, name, type, meta_value, meta_value_num, post__in
Example: [display-posts orderby="date"]

listing_class
Specify the class name used for each post.
Default: listing-item
Example: [display-posts include_content="true" listing_class="dps-listing-item"]

layout
Custom parameter to specify which template part layout should be used. See the template parts tutorial.
Default: empty
Example: [display-posts layout="dps-listing-item"]

interval
The amount of time to delay between automatically cycling to the next item for a carousel in milliseconds. If 0, the carousel will not automatically cycle.
Default: 5000
Example: [display-posts wrapper="carousel" interval="3000"]

arrow_color_class
Specify the class name used for the arrows and dots at a carousel. You can use “dark” or “light” depending on the background color.
Default: dark
Example: [display-posts arrow_color_class="light"]

left_arrow
Show the left arrow at a carousel.
Default: true
Example: [display-posts left_arrow="false"]

right_arrow
Show the right arrow at a carousel.
Default: true
Example: [display-posts right_arrow="false"]

carousel_width
The width of the carousel content in percent. The left and right arrows each use 15% and will be on top of the content if the percentage is greater than approximately 85%.
Default: 70
Example: [display-posts right_arrow="false" left_arrow="false" carousel_width="100"]

carousel_dots
Show the indicator dots below the slider.
Default: true
Example: [display-posts carousel_dots="false" right_arrow="false" left_arrow="false" carousel_width="100"]

transient_key
This should be a unique key you define to cache the output. Each key will be cached separately, so if you are using the same shortcode on multiple pages you can use the same key for each one (cache it once rather than separately). Internally, the name of the key is expanded with the word “dps”, the post type, and a checksum of the parameters. Whenever a new post is created or an existing one is modified, all caches for this post type are deleted to ensure accurate data.
Default: none
Example: [display-posts transient_key="all_posts" transient_expiration="2 * DAY_IN_SECONDS"]

transient_expiration
This is how long (in seconds) the data should be cached. You can specify a number (ex: 86400), or use one of the time constants to make it easier to read (ex: WEEK_IN_SECONDS). You can also multiply the constants (ex: 2 * DAY_IN_SECONDS ).
Default: none
Example: [display-posts transient_key="all_posts" transient_expiration="WEEK_IN_SECONDS"]

Featured Image

The featured image in our custom posts should always have a square thumbnail image defined. Otherwise, the round images will look like ovals. Follow these steps to define a square thumbnail image:

  • Media Manager
  • Click on the image
  • Click on “Edit Image” under the image
  • Select “Thumbnail” under “Apply changes to:”
  • Click on “Crop”
  • Select the thumbnail area on the image
  • Make the width and height under the Image Crop Selection the same
  • Click on “Crop” again
  • Click on “Save”

MailPoet 3 Premium

The MailPoet 3 Premium plugin is the most popular email and newsletter solution for WordPress. With a free account, which we signed up for on your behalf, you can send 5,000 emails per month to up to 1,000 subscribers through MailPoet Sending Service for free. Their high-availability service sends +30 million emails each month with a 98.5% deliverability rate. We authenticated info@yourdomain.com as the sending address with MailPoet and configured the sender domain authentication to ensure email deliverability.

The sign-up form is at the bottom of each page above the footer:

MailPoet 3 Sample Form

When the user subscribes with a valid email address, the box informs about the confirmation email:

MailPoet 3 Sample Form Submitted

The sign-up confirmation often called “double opt-in”, ensures your subscribers willingly joined your email list. All new subscribers will first receive a “confirmation email” from the MailPoet plugin. Inside this email, there is a link that must be clicked in order to activate the subscription to the newsletter. If they don’t click the link and confirm their subscription, they will remain “Unconfirmed” and will not receive any newsletters. The sign-up confirmation option is enforced when sending emails with MailPoet Sending Service, and there’s no option to disable it. See the checklist before importing an old email address list into Mailpoet.

When the user clicks on the “I confirm my subscription!” link from the confirmation email, he is directed to this webpage:

Double Opt-In Confirmation

Contact Form 7

The Contact Form 7 plugin is the defacto standard for contact forms under WordPress. We install the below contact form either on the homepage or if your webpage has one, on the contact page. The name, email, and subject fields are mandatory, the message is optional. The form is protected by an invisible Google ReCaptcha.

Sample Contact Us Form

The Submit button triggers an email to the info@yourdomain.com address with the contents of the form in the email body and informs the user that the message has been sent.

The plugin Flamingo, from the same developer as Contact Form 7, saves all messages through contact forms into the database. Otherwise, you may lose important messages forever if your mail server has issues or you make a mistake in mail configuration. It keeps an email address book and a list of all messages with detailed information which you can look up in WordPress anytime.

Events

The event posts can be used to create calendar events with a detailed description. The title is the event name. Each event has a mandatory start date field and an optional end date for longer events. The detailed text field allows shortcodes but no further formatting other than linebreaks. Each post can display a different thumbnail image to visually highlight the type of event. If none is provided, it will use the image from the general settings. A second, larger image can be shown to the right of the detailed description. In the final layout, all entries are ordered by the start date.

Add an event

The video shows how to enter a few dummy events. The first entry doesn’t set any images. The second one picks a different thumbnail image. The third FAQ picks a different thumbnail image as well as the additional image for the text area. Finally, you see the list of entered events. Sorting by the start date column rearranges the posts in the order they will later show up.

Layout samples

The custom events posts can be displayed in several layouts. Below are four sample layouts: Slider, accordion, unordered list, and flat.
