Solution is compatible with the popular WordPress framework, platform of choice for over 1/3 of top internet sites. This means you can find a great number of high quality themes, plugins, tutorials, documentation sources and service providers for your new project.

  • Theme
    Plugin uses WP shortcodes and hooks (actions, filters) to implement its functionality so most themes (free or paid) that meet WP coding standards will work.

    • Theme Requirements:
      – A theme with wide content area templates (preferably full page width) should be used so web application interface can use most of the space.
      – Theme should not disable WP hooks like actions and filters.
      – Theme should not disable or replace with older versions standard WP JS libraries like jQuery, as these are used for interface elements. This can be fixed with a plugin that forces latest version (which may affect the older theme).
    • Theme Suggestions:
      – Sample free theme: New projects are usually deployed with the free Twenty Seventeen theme, with all sidebar Widgets removed from Appearance > Widgets sections (so it shows wide content without sidebar). Widen layout with this custom CSS code: .site-inner {max-width: 1600px;}
      – Sample premium themes: Browse professional WordPress themes to skin site, change design. Check demos to make sure it supports wide content area.
      In example: VideoPro, Jupiter, Impreza, Elision, Sweet Date 4U, AeroLand . Most premium themes should work fine, these are just some we or our clients deployed in some projects and showed all solution features working fine. Latest versions may be different.
    • Theme Setup:
      – WP themes install automatically from WP backend. Tutorial for installing themes: Upload and Setup Custom WP Theme
      Sometimes themes have different menu placements and you need to configure checkboxes and enable menu from Appearance > Menus.
      – Demo theme content: Do not activate options that reset database as that would remove solution pages and menus and you will need to setup sections for accessing features again.
      Avoid installing sample theme content on main installation (pages with “lorem ipsum” texts and other fake content showcasing various theme pages). You can setup a new dev installation for tests or check theme demos, without cluttering your setup with useless content.
  • Full Mode License
    When ready to go live, you should get a full mode license, if you don’t have one, yet. Without a license software runs in free mode. A full mode license will remove all limitations and intrusive ads from the web applications when run from licensed domain.

    – Depending on site membership, users should have menus to access registration, login and site features.

    – Widgets can be edited from Appearance > Widgets. For this solution, removing all widgets from sidebar and disabling sidebar is recommended, to have more room for content and features.

  • Site Administration, Fine Tuning, Webmaster Services
    Although VideoWhisper provides turnkey packages with software, hosting, installation, you will be running your own site / platform, which involves some time, patience and minimal technical abilities or staff to run and manage own WordPress site.
    Site administration may include review of registrations if approval is required, fine tune settings and configuration for own business (configuring billing plugin settings to match your billing account, membership roles, prices, toggle features), setup specific site pages like terms for your project requirements, install and configure 3rd party plugins you may want to use in your project.
    If you don’t have the extra time or experience to run own site, you can look for a freelancer WP consultant. You can post a project on a site like Freelancer.com with your requirements if you don’t know where to find webmaster/design service providers.
    Consultant needs to have previous experience with self hosted WordPress sites, setting up pages and menus, configuring plugins and themes and HTML/CSS skills if you need adjustments on theme and feature styling.
