If you’re struggling with redundant documents or an intranet that barely gets used, you might want to try embedding Google Drive in WordPress.
If your company runs an intranet resource using WordPress, you’ve no doubt encountered the limitation of the WordPress media storage system. It’s slow to load, it doesn’t have a strong organizational architecture, and it isn’t easy to browse through. Which makes sense, really: WordPress is great for blog content and inter-company resources, but file management and office software is hardly their expertise.
Embedding Google Drive in WordPress marries all of the functionality (and shareability) of Google Docs, Google Sheets, and your Google file folders with the blog-style ease-of-use of a WordPress-based intranet.
Getting hired as a sysadmin is trickier than it’s ever been, but the right sysadmin certifications will keep you agile in a shifting marketplace.
With cloud and hybrid services disrupting the traditional model (in-house servers maintained by an in-house sysadmin), it’s vital that current and future sysadmins never stop learning. And while most sysadmin jobs don’t require more than a bachelor’s degree, it’s going to be your certs and your skills that put you in demand.
We’re going to guide you through the certifications for Windows, Linux, and cloud services that can bolster your resume, expand your skillset, and ensure that you’re positioned to look as attractive as possible in any job interview.
If you want to know what a slug is in WordPress, take a peek up at the top of this blog. See the URL? It should say “wp-glogin.com/2020/12/optimize-what-slug-wordpress” in the URL bar. That’s this blog’s particular web address, as you know.
But this section of the URL — /optimize-what-slug-wordpress/ — is called the “slug,” and it’s not just for organizational purposes, though it certainly is good for that as well. No, your slug is so important in WordPress because it has a huge effect on your SEO optimization and how Google (and other search engines) grade your site.
We’re going to walk you through why slugs are so important, why you can’t ignore them, and how to optimize the slug of each post and page to maximize your discoverability.
Don’t try to manually copy and paste elements of your blog or website when it’s so easy to duplicate a page in WordPress by using existing tools.
Save yourself the time and frustration, and instead embrace the software that can maintain all of your formatting, keep your SEO juice if you’re migrating, or just allow you to try out a new design without breaking your site.
We’re going to walk you through the basics: why you would want to duplicate a page in WordPress, what plugins you can use, and how to install, activate, and use those plugins.
Jobs are requiring more tech-savvy workers and remote work is increasing: your company needs an effective knowledge base to operate long-term. A knowledge base keeps institutional knowledge from becoming “unspoken rules”; it helps train new employees, and it organizes all your useful information into one clean database.
A knowledge base is a repository of useful information. While an internal wiki is generally for those inside your company or for other businesses you may have close relationships with, a knowledge base can also refer to a customer-facing resource designed to answer questions, provide troubleshooting tips, or just house instructional material. It works just like a wiki, gathering topic-based “articles” into an easy-to-organize system.
These tips will walk you through the entire process of setting up your knowledge base or internal wiki, from ideation to structure, organization, launch, and upkeep over time.
An internal company wiki isn’t just a convenience — it qualifies and quantifies information that could easily become “institutionalized knowledge.” Your internal company wiki must embrace the philosophy that no note is too trivial.
Your internal wiki is vital, and it must be concise, easily accessible, and frequently updated. Wikis are one of the best remote tools your company can use to increase communication and productivity.
The following eight features can transform your internal company wiki from “forgotten project” into “everyday resource” and not only shorten employee training time but also help prevent employees from getting stuck during their work.
