WordPress specific customisations on Presslabs

Change is the only constant—any WordPress site owner knows it, duh! To keep up with WordPress updates, we're continuously developing adjustments to help our clients make the most of their smart managed hosting experience.

WordPress is an extremely flexible Content Management System and we love it for that. We've made some adjustments on how it works on our platform and you can see below the changes that you'll notice when your site runs on Presslabs.

Where is wp-config.php?

Yes, that's true, you can't see your wp-config.php file for security reasons. Most of the <code>wp-config.php</code> configurations are available either directly from the Presslabs Dashboard, or by submitting a support request.

wp-admin is always served secured

In short the wp-admin area of your site is always delivered secured from your main domain using Let's Encrypt certificates, no matter if the public site has or not https enabled. You can find more information about why we're doing this on our security page.

Tweaks for plugins and themes

Considering that there are some plugins and themes that are not working out of the box on our platform, we've applied several fixes to make them properly work with us. In case you bump over a plugin or theme that doesn't properly work, please let us know and we'll have a look.

Posts missing schedules

This is an issue happening quite often, scheduled posts not actually being published at their scheduled time. As a result we have applied a fix platform-wise, where we're looking for missed posts every 5 minutes and publish them.
