Still setting up my website, still lots of questions and problems, for some reason my first thread was closed after I left work last Thursday so I am starting a new topic. I am including a link here so I and others with similar problems can find it all in one place...
Finally Setting Up My Website Lots Of Errors With WordPress
I appreciate all your previous quick responses but I am still having nearly insurmountable problems...
So here are my current difficulties:
Main Problem: Every time I click to edit something I have to wait 30 seconds or more for the database to update, this is way too slow, I need to have this work quickly, I know things take time but the future site owners won't have the patience or understanding to deal with this. What is happening? If this has to do with the ongoing site upgrades, I understand, but if this is the way your servers work this is UNACCEPTABLE.
Goal: All I am trying to do is move the site I began on wordpress.com to your server so I have a little more leeway in custom setup but nothing is transferring correctly, widgets especially. Currently I am trying to setup a map to our location and our calendar, neither one is working without NEW widgets, the ones on wordpress.com don't seem to be in the standard WordPress install on your servers.
Here is the old site I begun a month ago: gemrecovery.wordpress.com
Here is the current site: https://gemrecovery.000webhostapp.com/
They look similar but very different in details, I like the way the wordpress.com site looks but the template I have been using will not allow me to use a full-width calendar, so I am here trying to make this work.
I found a Google Map widget, which seems to work OK, it doesn't look anything like the one on wordpress.com but I am fine with that, it works.
I am still lost on the calendar, nothing seems to work the same, even the widget input fields don't show the choice between 'text view' and 'HTML view', I need to be able to edit the HTML to make this work. Am I missing something here?
