Menus (Response)

Added by Lisa Koster, Response for Setting Out Your WordPress Menus Activity

As I wrote last year, I wish this activity was around when I was first learning WordPress 6 years ago. I learned everything here the hard way .. I recently combined two different blogs into one.

My Own Cloud Storage (Response)

Added by Kim Carter, Response for Store and Share Files in your Domain’s OwnCloud Activity

I was able to install OwnCloud, I uploaded pictures and I created a sound folder. In my sound folder is a heart beat by Mike Koenig from free sound effects. I think this is a very useful feature to have on my domain. I can use it for both personal and professional.

URL Shortener FTW! (Response)

Added by jesslyndw, Response for Adding YOURLs- a URL Shortener to Your Domain Activity

I was forever bouncing into my bitly account to track traffic on my shortlinks, it’s fantastic to have it all rolled in together with my own site!  It did go glitchy on me when I tried to use capitals in the Custom short URL, but worked fine with lowercase. For example techforteaching.ca/techday2019 worked but techforteaching.ca/TechDay2019… Read more »
