    WooCommerce is a free eCommerce plugin that allows you to sell anything, beautifully. Built to integrate seamlessly with WordPress, WooCommerce is the world’s favorite eCommerce solution that gives both store owners and developers complete control.

    With endless flexibility and access to hundreds of free and premium WordPress extensions, WooCommerce now powers 30% of all online stores — more than any other platform.

    Sell anything, anywhere

    With WooCommerce, you can sell both physical and digital goods in all shapes and sizes, offer product variations, multiple configurations, and instant downloads to shoppers, and even sell affiliate goods from online marketplaces.

    With premium extensions, you can offer bookings, memberships, and recurring subscriptions. Perhaps you’d like to sell monthly subscriptions for physical goods, or offer your members a discount on digital downloads? It’s all possible.

    Ship wherever you like

    Offer free shipping, flat rate shipping, or make real-time calculations. Limit your shipments to specific countries, or open your store up to the world. Shipping is highly configurable, and WooCommerce even supports drop shipping.

    Extensive payment options

    WooCommerce comes bundled with the ability to accept major credit cards, PayPal, BACS (bank transfers), and cash on delivery. Need additional options? More than 140 region-specific gateways integrate with WooCommerce, including popular choices like Stripe, Authorize.Net, and Amazon Payments.

    You control it all — forever

    WooCommerce gives you complete control of your store, from taxes to stock levels to customer accounts. Add and remove extensions, change your design, and switch settings as you please. It’s all under your control.

    One of the biggest risks of using a hosted eCommerce platform is what happens to your store if the provider closes up shop. With WooCommerce, you have complete control, so there’s never any reason to worry. Your data belongs to you — and it’s kept secure, thanks to regular audits by industry leaders.

    Define your style with Storefront

    Storefront is a free WordPress theme available to any WooCommerce store. Along with deep WooCommerce integration, Storefront prioritizes speed and uptime while eliminating theme and plugin conflicts during major updates.

    Define your style even further by customizing Storefront to your liking or choosing from one of our several Storefront child themes. It’s all up to you, and all open source.

    Built with developers in mind

    Extendable, adaptable, and open source — WooCommerce was created with developers in mind. With its strong, robust framework, you can scale your client’s store all the way from basic to high-end (infinity and beyond).

    Built with a REST API, WooCommerce can integrate with virtually any service. Your store’s data can be accessed anywhere, anytime, 100% securely. WooCommerce allows developers to easily create, modify, and grow a store that meets their specifications.

    No matter the size of the store you want to build, WooCommerce will scale to meet your requirements. With a growing collection of more than 300 extensions, you can enhance each store’s features to meet your client’s unique needs — or even create your own solution.

    If security is a concern, rest easy. WooCommerce is audited by a dedicated team of developers working around the clock to identify and patch any and all discovered bugs.

    We also support WooCommerce and all its extensions with comprehensive, easily-accessible documentation. With our docs, you’ll learn how to create the exact site your client needs.

    Extensions galore

    WordPress.org is home to some amazing extensions for WooCommerce, including:

    Keen to see them all? Search WordPress.org for ‘WooCommerce’ to dive in.

    If you’re looking for something endorsed and maintained by the developers who built WooCommerce, there are a plethora of premium eCommerce extensions, the most popular of which include:

    And there’s plenty more where they came from. Visit our extensions page to find out everything you’re capable of and all that’s possible with premium WooCommerce extensions.

    Join our growing community

    When you download WooCommerce, you join a community of more than a million store owners, developers, and WordPress enthusiasts. We’re one of the fastest-growing open source communities online, and no matter your skill level we’d love to have you!

    If you’re interested in contributing to WooCommerce we’ve got more than 350 contributors, and there’s always room for more. Head over to the WooCommerce GitHub Repository to find out how you can pitch in.

    Want to add a new language to WooCommerce? Swell! You can contribute via translate.wordpress.org.

    And, finally, consider joining or spearheading a WooCommerce Meetup locally, more about those here.

    Limit the number of login attempts possible both through normal login as well as using auth cookies.

    By default WordPress allows unlimited login attempts either through the login page or by sending special cookies. This allows passwords (or hashes) to be brute-force cracked with relative ease.

    Limit Login Attempts blocks an Internet address from making further attempts after a specified limit on retries is reached, making a brute-force attack difficult or impossible.

    Features

    • Limit the number of retry attempts when logging in (for each IP). Fully customizable
    • Limit the number of attempts to log in using auth cookies in same way
    • Informs user about remaining retries or lockout time on login page
    • Optional logging, optional email notification
    • Handles server behind reverse proxy
    • It is possible to whitelist IPs using a filter. But you probably shouldn’t. 🙂

    This plugin allows users to clone posts of any type, or copy them to new drafts for further editing.
    If you find this useful, please consider donating whatever sum you choose, even just 10 cents. Just a few cents from every user would help me develop the plugin and improve support.

    How it works:

    1. In ‘Edit Posts’/’Edit Pages’, you can click on ‘Clone’ link below the post/page title: this will immediately create a copy and return to the list.

    2. In ‘Edit Posts’/’Edit Pages’, you can select one or more items, then choose ‘Clone’ in the ‘Bulk Actions’ dropdown to copy them all at once.

    3. In ‘Edit Posts’/’Edit Pages’, you can click on ‘New Draft’ link below the post/page title.

    4. On the post edit screen, you can click on ‘Copy to a new draft’ above “Cancel”/”Move to trash” or in the admin bar.

    5. While viewing a post as a logged in user, you can click on ‘Copy to a new draft’ in the admin bar.

    3, 4 and 5 will lead to the edit page for the new draft: change what you want, click on ‘Publish’ and you’re done.

    There is also a template tag, so you can put it in your templates and clone your posts/pages from the front-end. Clicking on the link will lead you to the edit page for the new draft, just like the admin bar link.

    Duplicate Post has many useful settings to customize its behavior and restrict its use to certain roles or post types. Check out the extensive documentation on the plugin’s site.

    Charts and Tracking Description >>

    This plugin generates static html files from your dynamic WordPress blog. After a html file is generated your webserver will serve that file instead of processing the comparatively heavier and more expensive WordPress PHP scripts.

    The static html files will be served to the vast majority of your users:

    • Users who are not logged in.
    • Users who have not left a comment on your blog.
    • Or users who have not viewed a password protected post.

    99% of your visitors will be served static html files. One cached file can be served thousands of times. Other visitors will be served custom cached files tailored to their visit. If they are logged in, or have left comments those details will be displayed and cached for them.

    The plugin serves cached files in 3 ways (ranked by speed):

    1. Expert. The fastest method is by using Apache mod_rewrite (or whatever similar module your web server supports) to serve “supercached” static html files. This completely bypasses PHP and is extremely quick. If your server is hit by a deluge of traffic it is more likely to cope as the requests are “lighter”. This does require the Apache mod_rewrite module (which is probably installed if you have custom permalinks) and a modification of your .htaccess file which is risky and may take down your site if modified incorrectly.
    2. Simple. Supercached static files can be served by PHP and this is the recommended way of using the plugin. The plugin will serve a “supercached” file if it exists and it’s almost as fast as the mod_rewrite method. It’s easier to configure as the .htaccess file doesn’t need to be changed. You still need a custom permalink. You can keep portions of your page dynamic in this caching mode.
    3. WP-Cache caching. This is mainly used to cache pages for known users, URLs with parameters and feeds. Known users are logged in users, visitors who leave comments or those who should be shown custom per-user data. It’s the most flexible caching method and slightly slower. WP-Cache caching will also cache visits by unknown users if supercaching is disabled. You can have dynamic parts to your page in this mode too. This mode is always enabled but you can disable caching for known users, URLs with parameters, or feeds separately. Set the constant “DISABLE_SUPERCACHE” to 1 in your wp-config.php if you want to only use WP-Cache caching.

    If you’re not comfortable with editing PHP files then use simple mode. It’s easy to set up and very fast.

    Recommended Settings

    1. Simple caching.
    2. Compress pages.
    3. Don’t cache pages for known users.
    4. Cache rebuild.
    5. CDN support.
    6. Extra homepage checks.

    Garbage collection is the act of cleaning up cache files that are out of date and stale. There’s no correct value for the expiry time but a good starting point is 1800 seconds.

    Consider deleting the contents of the “Rejected User Agents” text box and allow search engines to cache files for you.

    Preload as many posts as you can and enable “Preload Mode”. Garbage collection of old cached files will be disabled. If you don’t care about sidebar widgets updating often set the preload interval to 2880 minutes (2 days) so all your posts aren’t recached very often. When the preload occurs the cache files for the post being refreshed is deleted and then regenerated. Afterwards a garbage collection of all old files is performed to clean out stale cache files.
    Even with preload mode enabled cached files will still be deleted when posts are modified or comments made.

    Development

    • Active development of this plugin is handled on GitHub.
    • Translation of the plugin into different languages is on the translation page.

    Documentation

    If you need more information than the following, you can have a look at the Developer documentation.

    Preloading

    You can generate cached files for the posts, categories and tags of your site by preloading. Preloading will visit each page of your site generating a cached page as it goes along, just like any other visitor to the site. Due to the sequential nature of this function, it can take some time to preload a complete site if there are many posts.
    To make preloading more effective it can be useful to disable garbage collection so that older cache files are not deleted. This is done by enabling “Preload Mode” in the settings. Be aware however, that pages will go out of date eventually but that updates by submitting comments or editing posts will clear portions of the cache.

    Garbage Collection

    Your cache directory fills up over time, which takes up space on your server. If space is limited or billed by capacity, or if you worry that the cached pages of your site will go stale then garbage collection has to be done. Garbage collection happens on a regular basis and deletes old files in the cache directory. On the advanced settings page you can specify:
    1. Cache timeout. How long cache files are considered fresh for. After this time they are stale and can be deleted.
    2. Scheduler. Setup how often garbage collection should be done.
    3. Notification emails. You can be informed on garbage collection job progress.
    There’s no right or wrong settings for garbage collection. It depends on your own site.
    If your site gets regular updates, or comments then set the timeout to 1800 seconds, and set the timer to 600 seconds.
    If your site is mostly static you can disable garbage collection by entering 0 as the timeout, or use a really large timeout value.

    The cache directory, usually wp-content/cache/ is only for temporary files. Do not ever put important files or symlinks to important files or directories in that directory. They will be deleted if the plugin has write access to them.

    CDN

    A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is usually a network of computers situated around the world that will serve the content of your website faster by using servers close to you. Static files like images, Javascript and CSS files can be served through these networks to speed up how fast your site loads. You can also create a “poor man’s CDN” by using a sub domain of your domain to serve static files too.

    OSSDL CDN off-linker has been integrated into WP Super Cache to provide basic CDN support. It works by rewriting the URLs of files (excluding .php files) in wp-content and wp-includes on your server so they point at a different hostname. Many CDNs support origin pull. This means the CDN will download the file automatically from your server when it’s first requested, and will continue to serve it for a configurable length of time before downloading it again from your server.

    Configure this on the “CDN” tab of the plugin settings page. This is an advanced technique and requires a basic understanding of how your webserver or CDNs work. Please be sure to clear the file cache after you configure the CDN.

    REST API

    There are now REST API endpoints for accessing the settings of this plugin. You’ll need to be authenticated as an admin user with permission to view the settings page to use it. This has not been documented yet but you can find all the code that deals with this in the “rest” directory.

    Custom Caching

    It is now possible to hook into the caching process using the add_cacheaction() function.

    Three hooks are available:

    1. ‘wp_cache_get_cookies_values’ – modify the key used by WP Cache.
    2. ‘add_cacheaction’ – runs in phase2. Allows a plugin to add WordPress hooks.
    3. ‘cache_admin_page’ – runs in the admin page. Use it to modify that page, perhaps by adding new configuration options.

    There is one regular WordPress filter too. Use the “do_createsupercache” filter
    to customize the checks made before caching. The filter accepts one parameter.
    The output of WP-Cache’s wp_cache_get_cookies_values() function.

    WP Super Cache has it’s own plugin system. This code is loaded when WP Super Cache loads and can be used to change how caching is done. This is before most of WordPress loads so some functionality will not be available. Plugins can be located anywhere that PHP can load them. Add your own plugin by calling wpsc_add_plugin( $name ) where $name is the full filename and path to the plugin. You only need to call that function once to add it. Use wpsc_delete_plugin( $name ) to remove it from the list of loaded plugins.

    The cookies WP Super Cache uses to identify “known users” can be modified now by adding the names of those cookies to a list in the plugin configuration. Use wpsc_add_cookie( $name ) to add a new cookie, and wpsc_delete_cookie( $name ) to remove it. The cookie names also modify the mod_rewrite rules used by the plugin but I recommend using Simple mode caching to avoid complications with updating the .htaccess file.
    The cookie name and value are used to differenciate users so you can have one cookie, but different values for each type of user on your site for example. They’ll be served different cache files.

    See plugins/searchengine.php as an example I use for my No Adverts for Friends plugin.

    Troubleshooting

    If things don’t work when you installed the plugin here are a few things to check:

    1. Is wp-content writable by the web server?
    2. Is there a wp-content/wp-cache-config.php ? If not, copy the file wp-super-cache/wp-cache-config-sample.php to wp-content/wp-cache-config.php and make sure WPCACHEHOME points at the right place.
    3. Is there a wp-content/advanced-cache.php ? If not, then you must copy wp-super-cache/advanced-cache.php into wp-content/. You must edit the file and change the path so it points at the wp-super-cache folder.
    4. If pages are not cached at all, remove wp-content/advanced-cache.php and recreate it, following the advice above.
    5. Make sure the following line is in wp-config.php and it is ABOVE the “require_once(ABSPATH.’wp-settings.php’);” line:

      define( 'WP_CACHE', true );
      
      
    6. Try the Settings->WP Super Cache page again and enable cache.
    7. Look in wp-content/cache/supercache/. Are there directories and files there?
    8. Anything in your php error_log?
    9. If your browser keeps asking you to save the file after the super cache is installed you must disable Super Cache compression. Go to the Settings->WP Super Cache page and disable it there.
    10. The plugin does not work very well when PHP’s safe mode is active. This must be disabled by your administrator.
    11. If pages are randomly super cached and sometimes not, your blog can probably be viewed with and without the “www” prefix on the URL. You should choose one way and install the Enforce www preference plugin if you are using an old WordPress install. The latest versions redirect themselves (you should always be running the latest version of WordPress anyway!)
    12. Private Server users at Dreamhost should edit wp-content/wp-cache-config.php and set the cache dir to “/tmp/” if they are getting errors about increasing CPU usage. See this discussion for more.
    13. File locking errors such as “failed to acquire key 0x152b: Permission denied in…” or “Page not cached by WP Super Cache. Could not get mutex lock.” are a sign that you may have to use file locking. Edit wp-content/wp-cache-config.php and uncomment “$use_flock = true” or set $sem_id to a different value. You can also disable file locking from the Admin screen as a last resort.
    14. Make sure cache/wp_cache_mutex.lock is writable by the web server if using coarse file locking.
    15. The cache folder cannot be put on an NFS or Samba or NAS share. It has to be on a local disk. File locking and deleting expired files will not work properly unless the cache folder is on the local machine.
    16. Garbage collection of old cache files won’t work if WordPress can’t find wp-cron.php. If your hostname resolves to 127.0.0.1 it could be preventing the garbage collection from working. Check your access_logs for wp-cron.php entries. Do they return a 404 (file not found) or 200 code? If it’s 404 or you don’t see wp-cron.php anywhere WordPress may be looking for that script in the wrong place. You should speak to your server administator to correct this or edit /etc/hosts on Unix servers and remove the following line. Your hostname must resolve to the external IP address other servers on the network/Internet use. See http://yoast.com/wp-cron-issues/ for more. A line like “127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain” is ok.

      127.0.0.1 example.com
      
      
    17. If old pages are being served to your visitors via the supercache, you may be missing Apache modules (or their equivalents if you don’t use Apache). 3 modules are required: mod_mime, mod_headers and mod_expires. The last two are especially important for making sure browsers load new versions of existing pages on your site.
    18. The error message, “WP Super Cache is installed but broken. The path to wp-cache-phase1.php in wp-content/advanced-cache.php must be fixed!” appears at the end of every page. Open the file wp-content/advanced-cache.php in your favourite editor. Is the path to wp-cache-phase1.php correct? This file will normally be in wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/. If it is not correct the caching engine will not load.
    19. Caching doesn’t work. The timestamp on my blog keeps changing when I reload. Check that the path in your .htaccess rules matches where the supercache directory is. You may have to hardcode it. Try disabling supercache mode.
    20. If supercache cache files are generated but not served, check the permissions on all your wp-content/cache/supercache folders (and each of wp-content cache and supercache folders) and wp-content/cache/.htaccess. If your PHP runs as a different user to Apache and permissions are strict Apache may not be able to read the PHP generated cache files. To fix you must add the following line to your wp-config.php (Add it above the WP_CACHE define.) Then clear your cache.

      umask( 0022 );
      
      
    21. If you see garbage in your browser after enabling compression in the plugin, compression may already be enabled in your web server. In Apache you must disable mod_deflate, or in PHP zlib compression may be enabled. You can disable that in three ways. If you have root access, edit your php.ini and find the zlib.output_compression setting and make sure it’s “Off” or add this line to your .htaccess:

      php_flag zlib.output_compression off
      
      

      If that doesn’t work, add this line to your wp-config.php:

      ini_set('zlib.output_compression', 0);
      
      
    22. The “white screen of death” or a blank page when you visit your site is almost always caused by a PHP error but it may also be caused by APC. Disable that PHP extension if you have trouble and replace with eAccelerator or Xcache.
    23. After uninstalling, your permalinks may break if you remove the WordPress mod_rewrite rules too. Regenerate those rules by visiting the Settings->Permalink page and saving that form again.
    24. If your blog refuses to load make sure your wp-config.php is correct. Are you missing an opening or closing PHP tag?
    25. Your front page is ok but posts and pages give a 404? Go to Settings->permalinks and click “Save” once you’ve selected a custom permalink structure. You may need to manually update your .htaccess file.
    26. If certain characters do not appear correctly on your website your server may not be configured correctly. You need to tell visitors what character set is used. Go to Settings->Reading and copy the ‘Encoding for pages and feeds’ value. Edit the .htaccess file with all your Supercache and WordPress rewrite rules and add this at the top, replacing CHARSET with the copied value. (for example, ‘UTF-8’)

      AddDefaultCharset CHARSET
      
      
    27. Use Cron View to help diagnose garbage collection and preload problems. Use the plugin to make sure jobs are scheduled and for what time. Look for the wp_cache_gc and wp_cache_full_preload_hook jobs.
    28. The error message, “WP Super Cache is installed but broken. The constant WPCACHEHOME must be set in the file wp-config.php and point at the WP Super Cache plugin directory.” appears at the end of every page. You can delete wp-content/advanced-cache.php and reload the plugin settings page or edit wp-config.php and look for WPCACHEHOME and make sure it points at the wp-super-cache folder. This will normally be wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/ but you’ll likely need the full path to that file (so it’s easier to let the settings page fix it). If it is not correct the caching engine will not load.
    29. If your server is running into trouble because of the number of semaphores used by the plugin it’s because your users are using file locking which is not recommended (but is needed by a small number of users). You can globally disable file locking by defining the constant WPSC_DISABLE_LOCKING, or defining the constant WPSC_REMOVE_SEMAPHORE so that sem_remove() is called after every page is cached but that seems to cause problems for other processes requesting the same semaphore. Best to disable it.
    30. Set the variable $htaccess_path in wp-config.php or wp-cache-config.php to the path of your global .htaccess if the plugin is looking for that file in the wrong directory. This might happen if you have WordPress installed in an unusual way.

    Google AdSense Tracking and Affiliate Link Tracking

    With MonsterInsights Ads tracking addon, publishers can easily track the performance of their Google AdSense Ads inside their Google Analytics dashboard.

    Our affiliate link tracking makes it easy for bloggers and affiliate marketers to track their affiliate links with Google Analytics.

    MonsterInsights uses event tracking for all WordPress outbound link tracking which is far more accurate than any built-in WordPress analytics solution.

    Unlike other WordPress analytics plugin, our Google Analytics affiliate link tracking does NOT slow down your website because all events are recorded via JavaScript and sent straight to your Google Analytics account.

    Most other WordPress stats plugin track data on your WordPress hosting server which slows down your website and does not scale for larger websites.

    Since our affiliate link tracking use Google Analytics’ powerful servers, we can skip WordPress entirely and send data directly to Google Analytics.

    MonsterInsights’ affiliate link tracking feature works with all WordPress affiliate link management plugins including Pretty Links, Thirsty Affiliates, and others.

    Custom Dimensions Tracking, Custom Google Analytics Event Tracking, and More

    Our Google Analytics event tracking feature for WordPress doesn’t just stop at affiliate link tracking.

    You can use MonsterInsights custom Google analytics event tracking feature to easily add outbound-link tracking, file downloads tracking, call-to-action button tracking, hashmark tracking, telephone link tracking, and more.

    Our powerful Forms Tracking addon uses Google Analytics custom event tracking feature to enable form analytics in WordPress. With just 1-click, you can enable form conversion tracking for your contact forms, lead generation forms, registration forms, surveys, and any other type of form in WordPress.

    MonsterInsights’ Custom Dimensions addon allows you to push WordPress analytics even further. You can use Google Analytics custom dimensions to generate helpful WordPress stats for:

    • Author Tracking – see stats for each author to find which author’s posts generate the most traffic.
    • Post Type Tracking – see stats for WordPress post types to find out which sections are performing the best.
    • Category Tracking – see stats for your WordPress categories to find out which sections of your sites are the most popular.
    • Tags Tracking – see stats for your WordPress tags to find out which tags are the most popular.
    • SEO Score Tracking – see stats for your Yoast SEO score and see how it impacts your traffic.

    Regenerate Thumbnails allows you to regenerate all thumbnail sizes for one or more images that have been uploaded to your Media Library.

    This is useful for situations such as:

    • A new thumbnail size has been added and you want past uploads to have a thumbnail in that size.
    • You’ve changed the dimensions of an existing thumbnail size, for example via Settings → Media.
    • You’ve switched to a new WordPress theme that uses featured images of a different size.

    It also offers the ability to delete old, unused thumbnails as well as update the content of posts to use the new thumbnail sizes.

    Alternatives

    WP-CLI

    If you have command line access to your server, I highly recommend using WP-CLI instead of this plugin as it’s faster (no HTTP requests overhead) and can be run inside of a screen for those with many thumbnails. For details, see the documentation of its media regenerate command.

    Jetpack’s Photon Module

    Jetpack is a plugin by Automattic, makers of WordPress.com. It gives your self-hosted WordPress site some of the functionality that is available to WordPress.com-hosted sites.

    The Photon module makes the images on your site be served from WordPress.com’s global content delivery network (CDN) which should speed up the loading of images. Importantly though it can create thumbnails on the fly which means you’ll never need to use this plugin.

    I personally use Photon on my own website.

    Disclaimer: I work for Automattic but I would recommend Photon even if I didn’t.

    UpdraftPlus simplifies backups and restoration. It is the world’s highest ranking and most popular scheduled backup plugin, with over a million currently-active installs. Backup your files and database backups into the cloud and restore with a single click!

    Backup into the cloud directly to Dropbox, Google Drive, Amazon S3 (or compatible), UpdraftVault, Rackspace Cloud, FTP, DreamObjects, Openstack Swift, and email. The paid version also backs up to Microsoft OneDrive, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Storage, Backblaze B2, SFTP, SCP, and WebDAV.

    Don’t risk your backups on anything less

    Your WordPress backups are worth the entire investment you’ve made in your website. The day may come when you get hacked, when something goes wrong with an update, your server crashes or your hosting company goes bust – without good backups, you lose everything. Would you entrust all your hard work to a backup plugin with only a few thousand downloads, mixed reviews or no professional support?

    Believe us: writing a reliable backup plugin that works consistently across the huge range of WordPress deployments is hard.

    UpdraftPlus works. We’ll keep your backups safe.

    Why you should backup your website.

    WordPress like any CMS can be vulnerable to things such as server crashes, hacking, security flaws, bad plugin or theme updates and insecure web hosts. If anything happened to your website, it would cost you dearly in time, money and reputation.

    Whilst other security measures are essential, backups are the ultimate insurance: they mean that, if the worst were to happen, your website (plus all related files and databases) stay safe, and can be restored in no time.

    You could always create your own manual backups- but using backup plugin is infinitely quicker, simpler and safer. Life’s busy enough! With UpdraftPlus, you can simply “set and forget”, scheduling in automatic backups to save you time, work and hassle.

    How UpdraftPlus compares with other backup plugins:

    UpdraftPlus is the most highly-rated and popular plugin out there – and for good reason. Not only is it comprehensive in terms of its features, but it’s aso easy and intuitive to use. And because it has such a vast user base, it’s tried and tested in a whole range of different situations and scenarios.

    Unlike many other plugins, UpdraftPlus:

    • Restores, as well as backing up
    • Backs up to more cloud options than any others
    • Allows you to set up automatic backup schedules, for the ultimate in convenience
    • Is faster, using up fewer server resources
    • Has been tested on over 1 million sites

    On our website, we’ve got a whole page dedicated to how our Premium version compares with the competition here

    UpdraftPlus Premium

    The free version of UpdraftPlus works just fine, but if you need more features and options you can purchase our Premium version. Here are some of the many features of UpdraftPlus Premium:

    • Easily duplicates or migrates websites (with Migrator)
    • Multisite/multi-network compatible
    • Backs up non WP files and databases to multiple remote destinations
    • Free dedicated expert support

    Find out more on our comparison page. UpdraftPlus Premium is available for purchase here

    Managing multiple website backups

    We’ve also developed a brilliant new plugin that allows you to backup, update and manage all of your websites remotely from one central location. It’s called UpdraftCentral, and it comes in 2 different forms:

    • UpdraftCentral (free, self-hosted)
    • UpdraftCentral Premium (fully-hosted and “ready-to-go”, cloud version also available)

    Instantly create a temporary clone of your site (UpdraftClone)

    A temporary clone is an instant copy of this website, running on our servers. You don’t need to test or develop on your live site; instead, you can UpdraftClone it, and throw away your clone when done. Learn more about UpdraftClone here.

    • Easy: Press the buttons… UpdraftClone does the work.
    • Reliable: Runs on capacity from a leading cloud computing provider.
    • Secure: One VPS (Virtual Private Server) per clone, shared with nobody.
    • Fast: Takes just the time needed to create a backup and send it.
    • Flexible: If you want, test upgrading to a different PHP or WP version.

    To create a temporary clone you need: 1) credit in your account and 2) to connect to your account, below. You can buy UpdraftClone tokens from our shop, here.

    Are you multi-lingual? Can you translate?

    Are you able to translate UpdraftPlus into another language? Are you ready to help speakers of your language? UpdraftPlus Backup/Restore itself is ready and waiting – the only work needed is the translating. The translation process is easy, and web-based – go here for instructions: https://updraftplus.com/translate/. (Or if you’re an expert WordPress translator already, then just pick out the .pot file from the wp-content/plugins/updraftplus/languages/ directory – if you scan for translatable strings manually, then you need to get these functions: _x(), __(), _e(), _ex(), log_e()).

    Quick Video Demo

    Overview

    Duplicator enables you to:

    • Move, migrate or clone a WordPress site between domains or hosts with zero downtime

    Migrate WordPress and Run WordPress Backups

    Duplicator creates a package that bundles all the site’s plugins, themes, content, database and WordPress files into a simple zip file called a package. This package can then be used to easily migrate a WordPress site to any location you wish. Move on the same server, across servers and pretty much any location a WordPress site can be hosted. WordPress is not required for installation since the package contains all site files.

    Improve Your Workflow with Pre-Bundled Sites

    Duplicator lets you make your own preconfigured sites to eliminate rework. Instead of manually configuring your favorite theme, set of plugins or content over and over, now just configure a single site and bundle it up into a Duplicator package. Once you have the bundled site, you can migrate the WordPress site over and over to different locations to instantly create many preconfigured sites!

    Please Note

    The underlying logic to backup WordPress, move WordPress and transfer WordPress are complex and it’s impossible to know how each system is setup; this is why your feedback is important to us. Thanks for helping us to make WordPress the best blogging platform in the world.

    Disclaimer

    This plugin does require some technical knowledge. If you plan to migrate WordPress or backup WordPress please use it at your own risk and don’t forget to back up your files and databases beforehand.

    Really Simple CAPTCHA does not work alone and is intended to work with other plugins. It is originally created for Contact Form 7, however, you can use it with your own plugin.

    Note: This product is “really simple” as its name suggests, i.e., it is not strongly secure. If you need perfect security, you should try other solutions.

    How does it work?

    Really Simple CAPTCHA does not use PHP “Sessions” for storing states, unlike many other PHP CAPTCHA solutions, but stores them as temporary files. This allows you to embed it into WordPress without worrying about conflicts.

    When you generate a CAPTCHA, Really Simple CAPTCHA creates two files for it; one is an image file of CAPTCHA, and the other is a text file which stores the correct answer to the CAPTCHA.

    The two files have the same (random) prefix in their file names, for example, “a7hk3ux8p.png” and “a7hk3ux8p.txt.” In this case, for example, when the respondent answers “K5GF” as an answer to the “a7hk3ux8p.png” image, then Really Simple CAPTCHA calculates hash of “K5GF” and tests it against the hash stored in the “a7hk3ux8p.txt” file. If the two match, the answer is confirmed as correct.

    How to use with your plugin

    Note: Below are instructions for plugin developers.

    First, create an instance of ReallySimpleCaptcha class:

    $captcha_instance = new ReallySimpleCaptcha();
    
    

    You can change the instance variables as you wish.

    // Change the background color of CAPTCHA image to black
    $captcha_instance->bg = array( 0, 0, 0 );
    
    

    See really-simple-captcha.php if you are interested in other variables.

    Generate a random word for CAPTCHA.

    $word = $captcha_instance->generate_random_word();
    
    

    Generate an image file and a corresponding text file in the temporary directory.

    $prefix = mt_rand();
    $captcha_instance->generate_image( $prefix, $word );
    
    

    Then, show the image and get an answer from respondent.

    Check the correctness of the answer.

    $correct = $captcha_instance->check( $prefix, $the_answer_from_respondent );
    
    

    If the $correct is true, go ahead. Otherwise, block the respondent — as it would appear not to be human.

    And last, remove the temporary image and text files, as they are no longer in use.

    $captcha_instance->remove( $prefix );
    
    

    That’s all.

    If you wish to see a live sample of this, you can try Contact Form 7.
