New domain name, web host and contact email

I’ve moved the website(s) to a new domain: alx.media – instead of alxmedia.se. Short and sweet. This move also included manually setting up all 18 theme demo websites again, which is now done. The new domain also runs https, for secure browsing.

In this move, I changed web host from Webfaction to SiteGround, as Webfaction has been aquired by GoDaddy. So far I’ve had zero issues with SiteGround. Their awesome SG Optimizer WordPress plugin should hopefully make the websites faster to browse as well.

Finally, I’ve also updated my contact email. It is now contact(at)alx.media. Got any questions? Just send me a mail or use the contact form on the contact page.

If you see any issues, please report them! Thanks.

Tools for updating premium themes and taking care of your widgets

When updating your premium theme, you might have noticed that no alert appears in the WordPress admin panel when a new version is available, as it does with the free themes from wp.org. To update your theme(s) without problem, I suggest that you give the following plugins a try. This is instead of going through the procedure of deleting the theme and re-uploading it, with the risk of losing settings.

There is one more area in which you risk losing your settings when updating – your widgets. There is another useful plugin you can use to export/import widgets if that happens.

I hope these 3 plugins can help you when you update your theme. Happy updating!
