What are WordPress’ images and image sizes?

Posted by on October 8th, 2020

One of the greatest things about WordPress, a CMS that runs about 35% of the internet, is the flexibility of it. You can do just about anything with WordPress or the plethora of unending plugins available for download. WordPress’ back end is so robust that there are plenty of features built in that you don’t necessarily need to download a plugin to get what you need. With a little bit of knowledge, and some fiddling in the back end (make sure you do a backup prior to any work!), you can achieve impressive results. One thing WordPress has, by default, is a variety of image sizes that you can use on your blog, pages, or in your website’s design. But WordPress’ default image sizes aren’t exhaustive, and perhaps you’re looking for a way to use other sizes.

Ensuring Contact Form 7 Submissions are Received on Office 365

Posted by on September 1st, 2020

One of the single most frustrating things I’ve dealt with is the variations of things that can cause contact form submissions not to be received. The most common reason is that they are labeled as spam, but are still received. On rare occasions, contact form submissions are not received at all. In Office 365 email setups, this seems always to be the case. Unfortunately, by default, GoDaddy uses Office 365, so you may be here wondering how to tackle this issue.

Some people may use this internally in wikis or documents, so Google is giving you a heads up that the link will not work after August 31st, 2020. If you have never seen a link like that before or used one, then you have no reason to look for it or make any changes.
