Anyone running any sort of online enterprise should be wary of DDoS attacks. Or distributed denial of service attacks.

How to Properly Delete All WooCommerce Products – King Rosales

There may come a time when you may need to remove all the products in your WooCommerce powered ecommerce website. There’s just no easy way to do this natively in WooCommerce. I needed to do it because I changed the my product data XML file I was using to import into the site. It’s pretty straight forward, but to do it properly, you have to make sure you’re deleting all the additional data such as taxonomy, relationships, etc connected with all the existing products.

I tried using the WooCommerce Remove All Products plugin to do this, but first it didn’t work with my WordPress 4.1.1 installation and second it doesn’t remove any taxonomy.

So, to remove all your products you’ll need access to your PhpMyAdmin or some other tool like Sequel Pro to edit your WordPress database. I’ll be using PhpMyAdmin because its the easiest.

Two Line Toggles and Buttons in Divi | Divi Soup

Last week I was helping out a member of my Facebook Group with creating two lines of text in the Toggle module.

As you may know, the title fields of the Divi modules don’t support HTML, therefore getting two lines of text is close to impossible without JavaScript. But there is a way around this using the :before and :after pseudo elements, and as we have those fields in the advanced tab of the modules, it’s still relatively simple for clients to edit without breaking anything 😉

R33: HOW TO USE CSS GRID IN DIVI

R33: How to use CSS Grid in Divi

I’ve been creating a lot of layouts recently that require breaking out of the constraints Divi imposes through its 4 column layout limit.

There are a number of ways to achieve this; the built in column shortcodes, specialty sections, floats, flexbox and even plugins.

But the single most powerful and more importantly, fun way to do this is to use CSS Grids.

I’m in love with CSS Grids. Seriously, this relatively new CSS3 functionality is going to change your life!

Living the life of a millionaire without the bother of all those $$$ .......

Seriously, you don't need much money to live like a millionaire.. quite the opposite.

In 2010 (7 years ago) I came up with my adventure lifestyle challenge. I wondered whether it would be possible to work for 12 weeks, travel overseas for 4 weeks, then repeat... I also divided up my day, working from home, doing Web Site Design in the mornings and Massage in the afternoons. I am also a professional WordPress mentor helping people across the globe achieve their dreams. Both businesses now have clients on a 6-12 month waiting list... Strangely, the less I worked the more $ I made....

How did I do it? I'm still looking back defining all the little turns in life which lead to this balance, and writing a course to help you do the same..
