WordPress Content Management System Icon

I imported a pre-built Avada website into a fresh installation of WordPress but was presented with the following warnings on the frontend when using the Avada theme.

  • Warning: Undefined array key “width” in /public_html/wp-content/themes/Avada/includes/class-avada-head.php on line 414
  • Warning: Undefined array key “height” in /public_html/wp-content/themes/Avada/includes/class-avada-head.php on line 415

I also received the following warning on the backend of WordPress.

  • Warning: Trying to access array offset on false in /home/customer/www/public_html/wp-content/themes/Avada/includes/lib/inc/redux/framework/FusionReduxCore/framework.php on line 2024

Troubleshooting the issues revealed that it may have been attributed to the SVG upload feature within the Avada theme.

I managed to clear up the issues by simply disabling and enabling the SVG upload feature. See instructions below.

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.

This would allow the injected JavaScript tracking code to appear within the header <head> of every page on their website. Newer WordPress themes usually provide an option to inject code into the either the header, body or footer areas but the client had a custom WordPress theme with no such feature or ability.

In this article I will show you how to quickly and easily add a script, JavaScript or any other custom code into the Header area of your WordPress website with or without a WordPress plugin.

Social Media Icons Missing in Enfold Theme

If you are using the Enfold theme for your WordPress web site, after updating to WordPress 5.3.1 you may have noticed that your social media icons disappeared.

The issue appears to stem from the WordPress 5.3.1 security and maintenance release which may be preventing the rendering of the icon font script used to display said social media icons. But this is just a guess.

Luckily, the Kriesi Media development team at Enfold have addressed the issue. The solution to the problem will be included within the next Enfold theme release which is expected sometime after the holidays. In the meantime, they have provided us with a way to patch the issue and restore the social media icon font functionality.

WordPress Nulled Themes and Plugins

The process of installing a “nulled” theme or plugin (one that has had its licensing requirements or copyright removed) on your WordPress web site is simple, you begin by never doing it! Yes, the title was click-bait but keep reading.

I understand the lure of using a pirated WordPress nulled theme or pirated WordPress nulled plugin completely. Many times one isn’t sure if particular theme will suit a project or if a plugin will function as needed. No one wants to waste money purchasing a theme or plugin that they end up not using. Especially since there are literally thousands of them out there. Which is why some look for nulled versions of themes and plugins, but is it really worth it?
