Updating Essential Add-ons for Elementor Just Borked My Site!

(Edited 10/19/2020)

So you updated Essential Add-ons for Elementor and your site just Borked (Broke) all which ways. CSS Slammed to the left side of the Page, One Module you used on half of the site is now just all over in the Template Box you put it in, or worse the whole site won’t load at all and you don’t have a backup. Well… You are in some luck as you have some things to try here. Never do we say things are over until we say they are, right! There’s always Help For WordPress on Help4WordPress.com too.

You will first want to go into your WordPress Dashboard and navigate like this WordPress Dashboard -> Essential Add-ons -> Tools -> JS Print Method ‘External File’ -> Save Settings. After this, I would suggest click Regenerate Assets just for good measure.

If that didn’t work then make sure you cleared the cache of your Content Delivery Network and also any Cache Plugins you have installed on the site. This will ensure all of the regenerating and clearing of internal files you did is cleared from their cache too. Most CDN’s will automatically grab your .js and .css files without any input from you to assist in making your site faster for users. It like most measures to assist in site speed have an inherent downside.

If all else fails then I am betting the people over at https://wpdeveloper.net/ will get you straightened out. If you have a Subscription Plan with https://Help4WordPress.com though we will handle it for you and probably already know there is an issue. As we are on your site 24/7 monitoring and surfing through pages to see if errors occur.

*Disclaimer* The Help 4 Network and Help 4 WordPress Receive NO Referral or Paid Promotion for this post. We are just avid users and lovers of Elementor and the Various Plugins like Essential Add-ons for Elementor by WPDeveloper.net. Even when we hate it because it broke on us lol!

Why should I choose a team to help with my WordPress instead of just a single Dev/Designer?

In today’s landscape, your Developer or Designer needs to have more behind them just themselves. In today’s world the landscape of Hosting, Web Application Optimizations, Security, and Everything else that goes along with a website is ever-changing roles. So much so that one person has to work over drive to keep up. Believe me when I say I am speaking from experience. You simply need a team to help manage it all.

With how fast Vulnerabilities have hit the web and the ever-changing roles of security are enough to keep someone busy full time. Take a look at THIS and just look at how many ways WordPress can be broken and all of the plugins you have to pay attention too. Do you think the 500K users of Elementor knew right away that version 2.9.10 was an issue? No. It took teams of people to know that and figure that out. It took even more knowledge and know-how to figure out if the version that replaced this one will work with all of your other plugins without issues. Then add in all of the research that goes with that. Now we are talking about some serious amounts of time!

Why not just hire a team that deals in WordPress as if it was in our DNA? Hire Help 4 WordPress and replace all of the different things you need to have just to get your WordPress going and keep it going.

The Help 4 Network maintains a network of Ethical Hackers to ensure we stay on top of all of the news.

When it comes to our Clients and their WordPress install we take ZERO chances and work actively to stay ahead of the things and people who want to see you offline.

Why WordPress Owner’s Need to Learn What A ‘CVE’ Is!

Hi and welcome to another great post from the Help 4 Network. Today we will be looking at why EVERY WordPress Owner should know not only what “CVE” stands for, but also a good understanding of how to keep updated on where to find these “CVE”.

So the first thing I would say on the board is, WHAT IS A CVE?? Shortly put it stands for “Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures”. Now I bet that made ZERO Sense. So the longer version is these are the ways that are commonly known around the Internet of how to break in, make changes too, and over all mess with what ever piece of software we are talking about. In this case WordPress.

Now for “Why should I bother to keep up on this?” Well if you DO NOT HAVE A WAF (Check out our F.A.Q. for explanation) you will want to stay on these types of websites 24/7. Because you won’t have someone watching your back to make sure these ways are blocked and hackers can’t mess with your website. Now we all know we don’t have time to watch our websites 24/7. So why not have the peice of mind and let Help4 WordPress take care of that site?

How-To Update WordPress Safely

How-To Update WordPress Safely

We all know how scary this task can be. Making sure to backup before you get started is key though. Now what if you can't do it on your own with the follow information? Let The Help4 Team give you a hand!

Now To Help Get The Rest Of Us Going

  1. Ensure to have at least a backup copy of the “wp-content” and the SQL Database.
  2. Ensure the “Core Version” of WordPress is updated.  This will aid if there are errors and making sure the newest core features are around to assist.
  3. Update the Plugin’s that aren’t part of any other plugin first.  Say the Plugin you use for backing up you WordPress or the Limit Login Plugin you use.
  4. Update the Plugins that support other Plugins like all of the extra Plugins you need to run Woocommerce.  I.E. Payment Gateways or others.
  5. Now we update the “LARGE PLUGINS” like Woocommerce and anything else that requires other things to be updated first.
  6. The last update we do is to any Theme’s that are out dated.  Some side advise here is if you have some specially changed things on your site do a Backup again before you complete this.  Themes break WordPress just as fast if not faster than Plugins.
  7. Make a final Backup Copy of your Website as a final copy for the day.  You never know what tomorrow will bring!
