To hide the GravityKit menu link from the WordPress Admin Backend menu without having to mess with the GravityView Access Capabilities, you can use the filter provided below. Note this will hide the GravityKit menu for all users except administrators:

if( ! current_user_can( 'administrator' ) )
{
  add_filter( 'gk/foundation/admin-menu/submenus', function ()
  {
    return [];
  }, 100 );
}

To hide the menu for everyone, including yourself (administrators) use the code below:

add_filter( 'gk/foundation/admin-menu/submenus', function ()
{
  return [];
}, 100 );

WordPress Content Management System Icon

Recently was not able to convince a client of the benefits of having me professionally manage, host and maintain their website for them. They wanted to save money and use GoDaddy’s Basic Managed WordPress service. So I had to migrate their completed demo over to it but ran into countless errors with GoDaddy’s hosting platform.

The GoDaddy migration tool was useless as was GoDaddy support. GoDaddy support insisted that I upgrade the server in order to complete the migration. But I only had delegated access to the clients account with no ability to purchase said upgrade because the client did not grant me those permissions.

Long story short, I was able to manually migrate their site over, even though we were on the Basic Managed WordPress server using the steps enumerated in this article.

This article is only for my personal use, to help jog my memory if another client want to migrate their site to a more affordable solution. Please do not use this article for migrating any of your or client sites. If you do, you take full responsibility for anything that goes wrong, or right for that matter.

Carbon Copy WordPress Free Post, Page Duplication Plugin

 

[ See the officially released version of this plugin on WordPress.org ]

 

Are you ready to increase your productivity?

This free WordPress plugin will allow you to quickly and conveniently copy your pages, posts and even your custom post types. You can quickly copy, bulk copy and copy straight to new drafts.

Best Alternative to Yoast Duplicate Post

This WordPress plugin was based on the original Duplicate Post plugin by Enrico Battocchi before it was acquired by Yoast, now called Yoast Duplicate Post. Carbon Copy is now the best alternative to the Ad riddled Yoast Duplicate Post plugin. No annoying ads and greatly simplified for maximum productivity. But don’t take my word for it, I am biased.

How to Flush DNS Cache Windows

Most operating systems will cache (save) IP addresses and other associated Domain Name System (DNS) records in order to fulfill future requests more quickly.

For example, when I visit a website for the first time, my Brave web browser has to ask DNS servers what the IP address is for the requested website. Once it has found this information, my Brave web browser will store it in its local cache and take me to the requested website.

The next time I access that website, my Brave web browser will first check for locally saved DNS records which saves a step by not having to fetch that server IP address again.

When you update the DNS records for your domain name, after transferring to a new hosting provider for example, your local cache needs to be cleared and updated. Otherwise your web browser may continue redirecting you to the old web server address until the DNS propagates throughout the web (usually after 24 hours).

Also, sometimes dangerous IP addresses or corrupted results can be cached along with other issues not mentioned here. Whatever the reason, Windows will allow you to force the process of clearing this cache or “flushing” your DNS. In this article I will show you how to quickly and easily flush your DNS cache on Windows.
