Ireland Day 6

I

Day 6 was mostly working, but we did have a really great time in the evening eating a second time at Boxty and then Karaoke. You’ll need to be on our Instagram to see those videos. 🙂

Ireland Day 4

I

Day 4 was mostly spent seeing Ireland! We all piled into a tour bus and traveled all over. We saw two different counties and even passed through the town where “P.S. I love You” was filmed, which is our favorite movie! We went to Kilkenny and Glendalough. Glendalough Monastic City was pretty amazing and we hiked a rather difficult hike to the top of a hill for a killer view. We saw so...

Ireland Day 3

I

Day 3 started at 4:00 AM. I know, right? I could not sleep much at all. Being 8 hours ahead is just not fun. Knowing I had to be up at 5:00 and navigate my way to CrossFit Navitas by 5:30 made me a little anxious, but it was easy. Sunrise is 6:53 AM, and so it was dark, but walking 22 minutes to Camden was very enjoyable and felt safe, even though it was dark. The perfect amount of cold, one...

Ireland Day 2

I

Day 2 started with working together with my team at a co-working space here in Dublin. After that we hit a nice place to eat and grabbed some coffee on the way back to work on our project for the rest of the afternoon. Following our project we did an Escape room that was a lot of fun and then had dinner at The Crack Chicken. Not the best place we have eaten here, but it was okay. Looking forward...

Ireland Day 1

I

The day started with a wake up kiss from my wife and a long hug goodbye. She was off for a field trip in San Jose and had to leave early. That was also my signal to start my day. Got the kids ready and off to school and then finished the last minute packing and off to the airport. Overall the travel was not too bad. LAX was a long lay over and I met up with my fellow Automattician Yuki. After...

WooCommerce Subscriptions Not Renewing

W

Often times WooCommerce Subscriptions will fail to renew for a recurring Subscription because Cron is either not working correctly on a site or because of this. For traffic based firing of Cron, I suggest using JetPack Monitor. It solves this limitation easily and effectively. For troubleshooting when WooCommerce Subscriptions Not Renewing (or other Cron based scheduled events) I like to use WP...

Cancun Trip In Photos

C

Team trip to Cancun. Lots of good food, fun and sun. It was really humid, which was really, really not fun. Glad to have visited, but I am happy to never return. 🙂 Here are just a few photos.

WooCommerce Subscriptions Can I Remove Product?

W

If I remove a product or a product variation from my store, will that effect past Subscriptions based on the product I removed? I get this question a lot, and it makes sense. If you run out of stock, you don’t want to sell it anymore. Or what if you just want to discontinue a product, but still plan to sell it to folks who already have a Subscription? The answer is yes, removing the product...

WooCommerce Multiply all costs by person count

W

Today I had a really great question about the Multiply all costs by person count option in WooCommerce Bookings. This can be a pretty confusing option. So no worries. If you got confused by this one, you are not alone. So you check the check box next to Multiply all costs by person count thinking “great, now the price will be multiplied per person”. In our example the Alien person...

Troubleshooting WordPress Permalinks

Troubleshooting WordPress Permalinks The Issues 1. Custom permalink 404 Error 2. Web server not reading .htaccess file So you have your .htaccess file all setup per the WordPress Codex. But your post name links are returning a 404. You have tried modifying your .htaccess file many times. So what gives? A good test at this point is to add some junk to the .htaccess file. Save it. Test your site...
