1. "Coming Soon" or "Maintenance" Mode

To switch your website in maintenance mode you can download Wolf Maintenance plugin. It is ultra light and ultra simple to use.

Once the plugin is installed, while you’re working on your website, go in the admin “Tools” > “Maintenance” panel and choose the page where you want to redirect your visitors. For example a “Coming Soon” page.

When your website is ready to go, simply set the option to “Disabled” to put your whole website back online.


2. Integrate Google Analytics

To track your visitor page views, you can add a Google Analytics code to your page using our Wolf Analytics plugin.

It is an ultra-light weight and very simple plugin to output a GA code very easily.

Once the plugin installed and activated, paste your Google Analytics ID in the “Tools” > “Analytics” panel.

Your tracking code will automatically be displayed (for non-logged in user only).

3. Security Tips


Most of the time, the problem with WordPress and security isn’t going to be themes or plugins, it’s actually how you configure your WordPress installation.

Here are some basic things your need to do to keep your WordPress environment safe:

Issues may also come from non-reliable and non-secure web hosting company servers, usually the cheap ones.

Additionally, here is a post on WPTuts that may be useful.

You will also find a lot of plugins to improve your security in the WordPress plugin repository.

Please, note that this post is not a complete WordPress security guide but only a few tips to help you to get started.

4. Create a custom 404 Error Page

To set a custom 404 error page you must install and activate 404page – your smart custom 404 error page plugin.

First, create the page that you want to use as 404 page.

Then, simply navigate to "Appearance" > "404 Error Page" panel in your WordPress admin and set the page you just created as your "Page to be displayed as 404 page" in the plugin settings.

That's it! Simple as that. Now all error pages will display the content of this page.

5. Compatible 3rd Party Plugins

Most of the time, issue with the theme/plugins package are due to low server settings or 3rd party plugins.

We can't guarantee the quality and compatibility with all WordPress plugins as you can imagine, that's why we can't provide support for 3rd party plugin or services.

However, most common and well-coded WordPress plugins should work fine with your theme/plugins packages.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of plugins that we use on the demo installations or have been tested that are not already included in your theme package and works perfectly with our theme and plugins.
