    WordPress is the area where I feel like a fish in the sea... ;)

    Feel free to ask me anything about WordPress. That can be, but it's limited to every question you got (plugins, themes wise), but also technical issues, and everything else.

    Please do not request themes or plugins in this thread. This thread is meant to give you advice.

    Go ahead! :D

    I will answer all the questions as far as I am able to.

    First of all, thanks again for taking the time to run this AMA.

    You´re just expanding your legacy :D :p

    I am on a very tight budget and I would like to build a funnel with an autoresponder on WordPress...Is this too hard to build?

    I´ve seen a couple of YouTube tutorials on this but they are outdated and most of the tools they recommend are too damn expensive.

    I recently read you can build a full working funnel on WordPress using CartFlow..Is this true? Do you know any other way? How about an autoresponder?

    How can we avoid chaining critical requests? I tried several plugins but nothing. Any idea?

    You're welcome man. I have read your download request for CartFlows Pro yesterday and I promised to upload it. You can download it from this thread:
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/get-cartflows-pro.1197519/

    You can build a working funnel using CartFlows Pro. I have been working with this plugin a lot in the past - so other methods are not familiar (yet) to me.

    About an autoresponder: this is mostly done by an external SMTP relay server.

    Install this premium version of WordFence to avoid any malicious traffic:
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/get-wordfence-premium-nulled.1194190/

    Yoast for sure.

    Same as advised before. ;)

    I have many questions if you don't mind:

    - what things I should avoid to edit in a them to have a child-theme ? to update the theme without losing my editing
    - how can I do www redirect in my website ? is it possible with WordPress ?
    - what are the best ways to make the website fast ? (plugins + ways ...)
    - what would happen if I use an old version of a plugin or a theme ?

    There are currently 48 activated plugins on my website :p - the website is quite technical.
    I would recommend to choose for Easy Digital Downloads with the Mayosis theme which allows you to create a digital webshop easily. :)
    Many of the features on my website are custom build.

    Thanks for your questions.
    1. You should always choose for a child-theme in case you would like to edit the theme files. If you don't know how to create a child-theme (most of the time, a child theme is included within the main package of a theme), you can try this plugin: https://nl.wordpress.org/plugins/child-theme-configurator/
    2. Sure. https://nl.wordpress.org/plugins/wp-force-ssl/ or do it through .htaccess.
    3. You can choose a webhost with Litespeed enabled - this is running very smoothly with the Litespeed caching module enabled. In other cases, I recommend Perfmatters or WP-Rocket if you want a full caching + optimizations features for WOrdPress.
    4. Make sure to always update your theme and plugins. Many times, hackers are trying to search for vulnerabilities and trying to hack your site using old code. Always update your theme + plugin files. :)

    That's a very wide question.

    1. Using Link Whisper - also shared in the download section of the forum.
    2. Use this plugin: https://nl.wordpress.org/plugins/codepress-admin-columns/ and only edit the title - the permalink will remain saved.

    Which plugin works best for sweepstakes?

    For example, I want users to visit page, solve a content locker and then simply submit their name or e-mail.

    Nothing really. functions.php is the only thing. Anything else can be changed. Even functions you over-write with functions.php doesn't guarantee anything. A theme could call new functions and you're screwed.
