Appears to be Broken – But…

Rating Cloodo

This plugin appears not to be working in WordPress 4.9.8
I have tried, with no success, using multiple web browsers.
If anyone has a fix, that would be most welcome! ????

Update…
In our case, there was a fix… Security applications were blocking some functions. For anyone having this issue, try to temporarily make an exception.

Causes server load

Rating Cloodo

Cannot uninstall!
Plugin does not appear in “Plugins” area of dashboard.
Plugin folder is deleted off the server.
But… Under the “Tools” area, the option still appears.

There is NO SCHEDULED backup, there is no plugin installed or folder, yet it still runs, wasting space.

Stores backups on the same drive / server as the site (so if the server or hard drive goes down, the backups go along with it).

Uses up space very quickly.

Update 1:

I thought the fix was to edit database.

Remove the following records from ‘options’ table:

hmbkp_path
hmbkp_default_path
_transient_hmbkp_plugin_data

Okay, plugin was uninstalled.
Plugin folder was deleted.
Remaining database records (above) deleted.

Still…

Backups option for BackUpWordPress appear under tools!
Backups are being created!

How is this even possible? – Makes me think this plugin delivers a hidden payload(s)?

This plugin is VERY frustrating! Once it’s in, you don’t get it out.

Update 2:

When you log back into wp-admin, the deleted database records are restored!

THE FIX!!!!

I finally found the issue! (After a long time).

Reinstall the plugin, then activate the plugin.

Upon reactivation, your WP dashboard header will display two messages:

The BackUpWordPress Plugin has been de-activated The WP Remote Plugin includes BackUpWordPress.

Plugin activated.

In my opinion, this is a terrible implementation.

I’m deleting my WP Remote account and removing the plugin, just so I can get rid of this mess. WP remote was supposed to enable remote updates NOT to also waste server space and resources, processing needless backups (even though I had zero backups scheduled).

The functionality of these two plugins should be separate.

Obviously, I’m not happy with this plugin. Removed and canceled WP Remote account.

Plugin not detecting working template or working WHMCS

Rating Cloodo

I would very much like to provide a better rating… Currently, it is not working properly. I’d like to purchase the Pro version, but if there is no fix, it makes no sense to pay extra money.

1. Error:

The bridge was unable to find a component common to WHMCS installations (if you are using ‘six’ or ‘five’ as your template, it definitely should be there), please make sure https://www.xxxxxx.com/xxxxxxx/ is the location of your direct WHMCS installation (the bridge requires you already have WHMCS set up and installed – if you don’t have WHMCS, please click here).

2. WHMCS is installed, and it’s running with no issue. It uses template six, but only “five” and “portal” area available in the settings.

3. WordPress navigation “Mega Menu” elements become broken on the bridge page.

4. The plugin appears to cause very slow page load.

Does anyone have fixes for this? Plugin developers?

Thank you!
Roger

Simple and functional

Rating Cloodo

This plugin does exactly what is required. Simple to use, easy to install, and reduces the need to manually process any requests. Thank you for developing and maintaining this plugin, it makes WordPress life so much easier! In particular is the WooCommerce option – Terrific job!
In my opinion, this is the plugin I would recommend to others.

Slows down site

Rating Cloodo

Maybe not so beneficial in WordPress 4.4.1?

Pingdom before installing AMP: Page load time 1.03s

Pingdom after installing AMP: Page load time 1.92s

I can consistently duplicate the slower page load when AMP is installed.

Broken

Rating Cloodo

New version (3.x) is broken! (Old version 2.x worked great – I rated it five stars). The new version? – Zero stars!

Log says job is complete and show everything’s a success – However, the backup does not exist. Additionally, I’ve run the backup more than once, with the same result (log says everything is okay) – No backup actually exists.

Additionally, the GUI for the plugin says the “Last Job” was “not yet” – I’ve run it several times.

Unfortunately the old version was working great – If something’s not broken, don’t fuss with it.

Opinion: The new version is unusable, it cannot deliver what’s advertised, so (obviously) I’ll not pay for the pro version (since the free version cannot deliver).

Settings don’t save, unable to add fields to products

Rating Cloodo

I tried this plugin, and it does not work as described, at my end. Adding fields do not save when clicking publish or update.
The documentation was not useful in my case.
I suspect this is a potentially good plugin, but (in my opinion) is challenging with regards to documentation, ease of use (it was not), and intuitive UI.
Sadly, I uninstalled the plugin ????
Possibly in a few more versions some of these challenges will be overcome.

Update…

After investigation (all plugin deactivation, singular reactivation, etc.) It was discovered there seemed to be a conflict (probably javascript based). After reactivating all, this plugin works nicely.

One suggestion though…

As most surfing, etc. is done via mobile (and Google is using the “Mobile First” initiative), we found the plugin is not mobile friendly, as it’s still using old style <td><tr> tags.

We found the input were visible in desktop versions, but on mobile phones (for example) the input fields were not very visible (so small that the placeholder text was not visible).

To get some kind of fix, we suppressed the labels (as that information can be displayed in the placeholder). We used this CSS as a bandage fix:

table.wccpf_fields_table td.wccpf_label, table.wccpf_fields_table td.wccpf_label label {display: none !important;}

The above CSS improved the visibility when using a mobile phone.

Any chance this plugin at some point will become mobile friendly (using responsive design)? Using <div> tags instead of tables / row tags?

Thanks again! Appreciate the plugin, nice job!

Broken – Ads no longer display in WP 4.3

Rating Cloodo

Given the plugin has not been updated in over a year. The update to WP 4.3 (using the U-Design theme) finally causes ads to no longer display.
If anyone has a fix, that would be nice. ????

The Only XML Sitemap Plugin We Need!

Rating Cloodo

I installed this plugin for someone else, who needed XML sitemaps. This is a great plugin, it appears to work faster than many others I had tried. I did have one challenge on one website, and reached out to the developer. The responses were nothing less than stellar. In fact, the developer was engaged, listening, and offered troubleshooting suggestions. The developer ultimately provided a solution, and the plugin continues to work very well. In fact, with the help of the developer, he provided a solution where this unique website could continue to enjoy the plugin and retain the solution across future updates. Using Google News or “regular” Google – This plugin easily creates the XML sitemaps needed for your website. And what’s better… It’s working on a website with a massive number of posts – And works very well! There is minimal configuration needed, and the configuration available, is exactly what the majority of us need, there’s no useless (bloat) options, perfect! The plugin truly is a “set it and forget it” solution – Nicely done! And highly recommended.

Works Well!

Rating Cloodo

Thanks for this plugin. Just does what it says, and does it well!
I don’t have to worry about excessive settings, thank you for this!
I especially like that it creates a backup folder of images, if there’s a disaster, I already have images available. ????
