  • Resize Pagely images with URL parameters & PressThumb

    Pagely doesn’t resize images that are the wrong dimensions (height / width) on the fly.

  • Disable image optimisation on Pagely

    PressThumb can be disabled by renaming the pagely-pressthumb.php plugin in the mu-plugins directory to pagely-pressthumb.php.off. Pressthumb optimization can be re-enabled by renaming the file back to its original name.

  • Google font not loading / broken after Pagely clone using a Mai Engine powered WordPress theme

    Not sure exactly where the fault lied, but the issue was the font was pointing to domain.com/dom12345/wp-content/fonts/ instead of domain.com/wp-content/fonts/. Running pagely-wp search-replace /dom12345/wp-content/fonts/ /wp-content/fonts/ was enough to solve it.

  • Difference between VBURST and VPS-1 Pagely plans

    VBURST uses AWS T3 processors (https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/instance-types/t3/), which aren’t as powerful as the VPS-1. Same amount of cores, but they throttle after a certain usage (cpu credits) which is tracked in your Atomic dashboard. If your sites are very cacheable and you’re not pushing a ton of traffic, it should work fine. You also don’t get…
