From WordPress to Instagram : Automatic uploading using Instagram API

Short answer: It is not (yet) possible 

Instagram

Long answer (Coming directly from Instagram folks) :

At this time, uploading via the API is not possible. We made a conscious choice not to add this for the following reasons:

  •  Instagram is about your life on the go – we hope to encourage photos from within the app. However, in the future we may give whitelist access to individual apps on a case by case basis.
  • We want to fight spam & low quality photos. Once we allow uploading from other sources, it’s harder to control what comes into the Instagram ecosystem. All this being said, we’re working on ways to ensure users have a consistent and high-quality experience on our platform.

 

So in conclusion: you can upload content to Instagram only within Instagram. Any other external source, like for example WordPress, can not upload and/or sync with Instagram 

WP e-Commerce: Disable Comments in Products

Simple and effective way for disabling the possibility to comment in all the products instead of doing it for each product.

function francesco_disable_wpsc_comments() {

}
add_action( ‘init’, ‘francesco_disable_wpsc_comments’ );

 

Add this function in your theme’s function.php file

WordPress Form 7 plus Bluehost plus gMail: the Proper Configuration

This is a small summary of actions for giving sense to your contact form and actually receive mail coming from the website.

Bluehost has several constrains that are not (or no longer) compatible with Form 7. In particular you can send email only if the come from the same domain of the website that it is hosting.

What follows is a good way to make things working without touching the source code of Form 7.

Bluehost side: 

  1. Go to the cPannel and select eMail
  2. Create a new account like info@<yourdomain.com>

WordPress/Form 7 Side: 

  1. Go to the contact form
  2. Use for both “from” and “to” the email that you just created
  3. In the generic setting use info@<yourdomain.com> as contact email

Gmail side: 

  1. Goes to setting
  2. Goes to Accounts and Import
  3. Follow the instructions for adding another email address you own
  4. Allow gmail to check and fetch the mail of the account that you created

 

Unfortunately forwarders that are simple to configure do not works for your form of your websites
