Do you need help with TrustPulse? In this tutorial, we’ll discuss best practices to help receive a timely response, making the best use of both your time and our time.
- Is Your Site Accessible?
- Does Your Site Use Optimization or Caching?
- Is your Hosting Service Up-To-Date?
- Is WordPress Fully Updated?
- Is Your TrustPulse Up-To-Date?
- Is Support Still Needed?
Please review the following steps before proceeding with your support request.
1) Is Your Site Accessible?
Make sure that you can view your site just like a visitor will be. This means not logged in to an owner-only view and checking to ensure that your site is free from page loading errors so you can navigate your website.
3) Does Your Site Use Optimization or Caching?
Caching and optimization plugins can unintentionally end up preventing the TrustPulse API from running. This includes causing notifications from not showing or not getting captured.
4) Is your Hosting Service Up-To-Date?
Sometimes issues you see on your site can occur because a hosting provider is not working properly or isn’t up-to-date with the latest WordPress requirements.
The latest WordPress release (as of 2020) recommends PHP 7.3 or higher, MySQL 5.6 or higher (OR MariaDB version 10.1 or greater), Apache or Nginx, as well as HTTPS support. You can find more about hosting services and requirements here.
5) Is WordPress Up-To-Date?
Are you running the latest release of WordPress? If not, you are more at risk to bugs, security vulnerabilities, and problems with plugins. If your site isn’t on the most updated version of WordPress the best next-step is to check out the WordPress documentation on How to Upgrade WordPress.
6) Is Your TrustPulse Up-To-Date?
We have already created a document talking about installing TrustPulse, so we encourage you to check that out and ensure your TrustPulse plugin is actually activated.
The next step is very similar, make sure TrustPulse is up-to-date with the latest version and that all your add-ons are both updated and activated. If you need help, check out WordPress’s plugin documentation on managing plugins.
