It’s been a busy few weeks at 2020Media for installing new WiFi systems across London.
Pictured is the first Bethnal Green branch of “F*ckoffee“, where a new WiFi system was installed both here and it’s sister branch down the road. In August we installed WiFi for Fix Coffee, a trendy coffee shop with two sites in Hackney and the Barbican.
As always, a easy to use system is key, and our WiFi service delivers this above all else.
Setup on each site was completed in under 15 minutes (including the time to drink a cup of expertly barista’d flat white!)
Costs for the service are currently held at £15+vat per month, with a setup charge of between £100 and £200. Flexible contracts and loads of features you just don’t get with other WiFi solutions.
WordPress publishes new information that describes why WordPress 5.5 negatively affected millions of websites, a staggering amount. WordPress is publishing a maintenance release, version 5.5.1. It is designed to serve as a patch to give time for plugin and theme developers to update their software.
The announcement about what went wrong linkes to a spreadsheet naming hundreds of plugins and themes that were affected.
The spreadsheet also notes what the specific issue is for each plugin and theme, which will help software developers fix their plugins and themes.
2020Media’s Managed WordPress service is run by experts who know that major new releases can cause issues like this, and took the decision NOT to upgrade sites to 5.5 and therefore sites were not broken by the original release. We’ll be testing this new 5.5.1 release before rolling it out.
Google’s official advice for website owners emphasises that website should remain active during the pandemic.
An important step, Google says, is to not disable your website altogether. Although business owners might find it tempting to turn off their websites to avoid paying fees or disappoint customers they can’t serve, Google says that this might harm your website rankings when the site it brought back online.
Turning your site off “is an extreme measure that should only be taken for a very short period of time (a few days at most), as it will otherwise have significant effects on the website in Search, even when implemented properly,” wrote John Mueller, a trends analyst at Google, in a blogpost.
