1 / Mass download
« on: March 08, 2014, 17:40 »
Someone or multiple people have been downloading my images like 25 per day!
The strange thing is it seems to be one person i think as they are mass downloading one particular model!

I normally sell like 6 images per day on ss and now its like 30.

Should i be concerned or report it to ss as possible problem?

Symbiostock - General / Symbiostock_XML_cache
« on: September 05, 2013, 10:33 »
Could someone tell me what this Symbiostock_XML_Cache is at all please? Is it needed for the site to function as I'm not including it in backups, but its a large folder.

Symbiostock - General / Code freeze?
« on: September 05, 2013, 06:09 »

I have been giving this back up a lot of thought and my concern was what happens if whilst downloading site, the database changes?
I saw this plugin "code freeze" would this be suitable to freeze the site to allow you to back it up properly.

Kind regards

Symbiostock - General / updraft
« on: September 05, 2013, 01:32 »
Just wanted to check I'm settting up updraftplus correctly. Tick plugins, uploads, any other directoies in wpcontent,  themes, core boxes including core and exclude "symbiostock_XML_Cache" is that correct?

Symbiostock - General / Ftp backup
« on: September 04, 2013, 08:37 »

Can someone help me with the ftp backup. I have copied the whole of "public_html" directory. Does this literally back up the whole site? Does it back up the data tables?

Symbiostock - General / Backup Vaultpress
« on: September 02, 2013, 11:48 »
I took out a vaultpress subscription, as it sounded great. However, I need to warn any other symbiostock member that they don't back up the root directory and this is particulary an issue for the Symbiostock_rf directory. This contains all of your high res images. The only way I can see around the problem is to create a folder in your wp content/uploads folder, and then copy your files across.

If u lose files from this directory you will need to reupload, and keyword them.

This means that if you add an image, you also need to manually copy it across.

Do other backup solutions offer root back up?

Symbiostock - Technical Support / Cart manager
« on: August 29, 2013, 02:53 »

I know Leo released the cart manager free, but wondered if anyone could shine light on this error:

"Warning: unserialize() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in /home2/picturz4/public_html/wp-content/plugins/ss-cart-manager/functions.php on line 246"

Im on version 2.6.0 and using leo's premium plugin.


Symbiostock - General / enhanced/extended
« on: August 27, 2013, 09:40 »
How much should we charge for enhanced/extended license? Leo's plugin gives us price slots for all of the sizes.

How much would you charge for a small up to large?

Kind regards

Symbiostock - SEO & Marketing / focus keyword - note
« on: August 19, 2013, 01:48 »
Although as I get older my memory is going, there are some things I remember. Yoast lied to me the other day and told me that I hadn't used a certain focus keyword before. I checked and  I had. The only reason that I can explain this is because it groups the images by default into batches of 1000. The Image I was editing must have been in a different batch.
Just thought I'd mention it.

I think we have all submitted site maps to google, but have you submitted to bing?
This covers bing and yahoo search engine. Before I submitted my site map this morning, bing had only found about 10% of my site in 2 months.
If the engines dont know we exist then no one will find us.
Kind regards

Symbiostock - SEO & Marketing / google deindexing images?
« on: August 16, 2013, 07:55 »

I am working through my site doing my SEO. Since Ive been doing this the traffic has been increasing which is pleasing. However, it seems that my image count from google webmaster tools is decreasing.

My thoughts are that maybe where I have changed permalnk URL, google removed them and hasn't found the other images yet?
Not sure, anyone got any other ideas?

Kind regards

Symbiostock - General / imagemajick
« on: August 13, 2013, 12:42 »

I've read a few threads about the importance of using Imagemajick. On my symbiostock site it says "Using ImageMagick" under image processing. However, I;ve also read that to use this you need to edit CSS to allow use of imagemajick and now I'm just confused as to whether it would be working or not?
do i need to edit the css?

How is your SEO going to get green?

So far 149 images out of 1251..............11.9%

I wished there was a plugin for this!


My symbiostock site looks totally different on desktop vs laptop. It doesn't look good on laptop at all. I can't understand this. Also, I don't know how to correct it.
