So what is WordPress Maintenance Packages? Most freelance web designers know that WordPress has to be maintained and as such they often get anxious about clients who don’t bother and what if something goes wrong. It can be easy to panic when you’re working on a project with this web design package, as you really need the information to be in tip top condition.
Now then, you probably already knew this, but it’s a good idea to have a basic knowledge of how to go about making use of WordPress Maintenance Packages. First, you need to install the package onto your computer. This is a very simple process and you will find that once installed you don’t have to worry about doing anything else. In fact, you’ll find that it is quite the opposite.
Now then, you’ll be able to go to your “Add-ons” menu in WordPress and click on “installation wizard”. This will be a good sign as WordPress requires a little more maintenance than most other themes or packages. You should be able to follow the instructions that come with the installation wizard and have it set up and ready to go. If for whatever reason this doesn’t work then you will find yourself on a clean slate.
Next, you will want to make use of your WordPress Maintenance Packages tool to back up your website. Again, there are different tools which will suit different users and different levels of expertise, but it’s a good idea to get to grips with the basics.
You should try to find a clean backup which allows you to upload files to a different location. You do not want to lose anything by making use of the “Backup All” feature on your Maintenance Package. You should also try to find a tool that lets you run a test backup and you’ll also want to use this so that you are absolutely sure that you can restore your site if something goes wrong.
You can then go onto your Backup Page and upload your files. Make sure that you click on “create backup” before you save these things. Once they’re uploaded, you’ll be asked to enter some information regarding your FTP account.
Once you are done you’ll be able to go onto your “Addons” menu in WordPress again and click on “backup plugins”. You may need to click on “download plugins” as well but this will allow you to download plugins to the backup folder.
Make use of your backup to ensure that your site is always in tip top condition. Make sure that all of the necessary backups are made and then that you check them regularly so that you don’t forget to restore them after each change to the theme. A clean backup will enable you to keep everything updated.
Some of the other things that you can do with your WP Maintenance Packages include editing the WordPress settings. One thing that you may want to do is make use of the “Quick Edit” feature. This feature will allow you to edit or add content to certain parts of your theme or plugin.
If you are a novice in editing settings then you may want to start off by using the “Quick Edit” feature. This feature will allow you to simply click on a particular area and insert code from within the editor to that section. Once you know what you are doing you will be able to add new code to various areas without having to go into the full editor of your theme.
After you have done this you should then edit your “main section of the plugin. This will allow you to add code to sections of the plugin which will affect that particular page. You can then change the code and make modifications to it as well as changing any meta tags. Once you are done with this you can then go on to the other parts of your blog.
Once you’ve done this you should click on the “Settings” link and enter the URL address to your main page in that main section. You can then use the same button and go back to the main page to continue working on other aspects of your site or to change the theme.
