2. Can I start Amazon affiliate business using free WordPress theme? I really don’t want to spend on something which I am not sure will work for me.

Of course you can!

While there is no free WordPress theme with features and options paid themes come with, you can still have great success.

When I was starting with Amazon affiliate program I used free WordPress theme too. Theme lacked various features and I  had to add various plugins, make customizations….

Also developer wasnt providing support and had regular updates for theme. That is common with free WordPress themes. You have to rely on other users help mostly.

There was no earnings too. But that was more because I was lazy and didn’t add value to content.

Then I told myself “Fuck it!” and paid $50 for premium theme. Mostly when you buy something, you appreciate it more than things you get free.

As new theme came with lots of features I was able to provide more value to visitors. Also I added unique content,worked on search engine optimization and speed optimization.

Now 2 years later I earn $50-$100 per site in Amazon program. Probably would earn more but I manage more than 10 sites and work on dozen of projects so don’t have time to add content, update or do much work.

Paying $50 for a theme is not much. I think everyone can afford it. Especially if you are thinking serious.

You can have success with free theme and plugins too. WordPress community is great. There are many available tools for Amazon affiliate program in WordPress repository. Start with free theme and see how it goes. You can always upgrade.

All in all, theme doesn’t matter that much. You have to be motivated, maybe provide visitors with comparison tables, other buyer reviews, do proper SEO and keyword research…

3. I bought theme/product/plugin by your recommendation and it sucks!

Different people have different opinions. Or how Romans would say : “Quot capita, tot sententiae.”

My reviews and statements are solely my opinion. I thrive to do my best and help you decide what is best for your business or personal use and be as open, forthright and sincere as possible, at all times no matter what product is being reviewed.

I occasionally make recommendations. I make them either because of their value, helpfulness and quality, or based on  direct or indirect knowledge, track record and level of expertise. No advertiser will ever influence the content on site.

It is impossible for anyone to predict how, or even if, you will have benefit from information provided in your specific business.

As with every business venture, there’s inherent risk. You even stand a chance to lose money. So please use discretion when making a purchasing decision.

Most products have some kind of refund policy, documentation, tutorials or support if you are not satisfied.

4. Which plugin do you recommend for SEO?

For search engine optimization I mostly use and prefer WordPress SEO by Yoast. While I have tested and still use All In One SEO Pack and Premium SEO Pack, Yoast SEO plugin suits me best.

Which one gives best results? That I don’t know. It all depends on various aspects. I have made comparison between those three in previous posts where I concluded that Premium SEO Pack gives most for money invested.

 

5. What number of installed plugins starts to slow down site?

I have already wrote about this topic. Number of plugins doesn’t affect the speed of your WordPress site. Poorly coded plugins do.

While you can use 60 plugins without any significant impact on site load time, I like to keep them on minimum.

6. How to increase WordPress memory limit?

There are several ways to increase your site memory limit:

a) Edit your wp-config.php file and enter value:

define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ’96M’);

 

b) If you have access to your PHP.ini file, change the line in PHP.ini. If your line shows 32M try 64M:

memory_limit = 64M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (64MB)

 

c) If you don’t have access to PHP.ini try adding this to htaccess file:

php_value memory_limit 64M

 

d) If none of the above works then contact your host.

7. How to know which plugins are slowing my WordPress site?

It’s easy to tell if your site has performance issues cause by plugin you have installed.

You can check plugins performance using P3 (Plugin Performance Profiler) which is free to download plugin from WordPress plugin repository.

It helps WordPress users to scan their own sites and find out which plugins are causing a slow performance. It measures the impact plugins are having on your site’s load time.

After you install the plugin, you’ll need to go to its settings page and start the scan. The scan takes a few minutes.

During the process the scanner generates some traffic on your site and monitors your site’s performance on the server.

Once the scan is finished, click “View Results” and from there you can figure out your next move, based on what you find.

8. How to solve Fatal error: Call to a member function register_handler() on a non-object in /home/foldernameofyoursite/public_html/wp-includes/media.php on line xxx?

Sometimes when upgrading WordPress to its latest version it can create a lot of errors and cause website to stop working.

As you may know, I have few sites that I maintain. Some of them are automatically updated to new version of WordPress when it comes out.

One of them, recently, when new version of WP came out, started showing blank admin login page. Site was live and all was working except admin login page which showed blank page.

None of usually methods like disabling all plugins and reverting to default theme didnt worked. So I checked my error log and found error that started showing at that date.

It showed: Call to a member function register_handler() on a non-object in /home/kasareviews/public_html/wp-includes/media.php on line 2130.

You will probably have problem on different line. How did I solve it?

First I downloaded media.php file to my desktop as backup. Then I removed code from line 2130 in media.php in my cPanel editor and save it.

I was then able to see my WordPress site admin page and to login. I updated WordPress and uploaded back original media.php file. No blank admin page anymore.

Another option you could try is:

Open wp-setting.php in your site root folder and search below code :

require( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/update.php' );
require( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/canonical.php' );
require( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/shortcodes.php' );
require( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/media.php' );
require( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/http.php' );
require( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/class-http.php' );

 

Now replace it with below code (in below code you can see I added only one line) :

require( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/update.php' );
require( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/canonical.php' );
require( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/shortcodes.php' );
require( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/class-wp-embed.php' );
require( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/media.php' );
require( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/http.php' );
require( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/class-http.php' );

 

Hope it helped.

9. How to hide product meta from WooCommerce single product page?

On single product page, WooCommerce shows product meta that consists of SKU, product categories, and product tags.

If you want to hide SKU or product categories or product tags, you only need to put simple CSS code to the bottom of style.css file in your child theme folder.

If you dont have child theme you can also put it in your theme style.css. Or even better if your theme comes with theme options which have custom CSS field, then you can put it there.
