WP_DEBUG is a PHP constant (a permanent global variable) that can be used to trigger the "debug" mode throughout WordPress. It is assumed to be false by default and is usually set to true in the wp-config.php file on development copies of WordPress.
In order to make your WordPress installation show the errors you are getting from a theme or plugin, you can activate it. Note that this is not recommended to live websites as users will see the errors, but in case you need to debug your website and see why it is crashing or what could be causing the issue, the first step would be to check the debug mode.
You can be asked by some of our representatives to activate the debug, as there are cases when the support team can't really guess what could be the problem.
In order to do that, you'll have to connect to your server via FTP, edit the wp-config.php file there and find the line:
define( 'WP_DEBUG', false );and basically change the "false" declaration to true.
Favicon or Site Icon is the tiny image that appear next to your website title in the browser. It helps your users identify your website and more frequent visitors of your site will build an instant recognition for that tiny image. This increases your brand recognition and helps you build trust among your audiences.
From version 4.3 we disabled the option within the themes and we are using the default WordPress setting.
Since WordPress 4.3, you can add a favicon or site icon from WordPress admin area. Simply go to Appearance » Customize and click on the ‘Site Identity’ tab.

Using multiple websites for different languages is not a good solution, this is why we always recommend translating it via plugins, and you can try using: Polylang
After you install and activate the plugin you need to visit Settings » Languages to configure the plugin.
The language settings page is divided into three tabs. The first tab is labeled ‘Languages’. This is where you add the languages you want to use on your site.
You will need to add the default language, as well as select all other languages that users can choose on your site.
After adding the languages, switch to the ‘Strings Translations’ tab. Here you need to translate site title, description, and then choose the date and time format.
Last step in the configuration is the Settings tab. This is where you can choose a default language for your site and other technical settings.
Your default language will automatically be selected, so you can first add content in your default language, and then translate it into others.
To translate, you need to click on the + button next to a language and then add content for that language.
Repeat the process for all languages. Once you are done, you can publish your posts and pages.
It’s important to note that Polylang works with custom post types, so it can definitely help you make your woocommerce store multilingual.
Display language switcher
Adding a language switcher allows users to select a language when viewing your site. Polylang makes it super simple. Just go to Appearance » Widgets and add the language switcher widget to your sidebar or another widget-ready area.
You can choose a drop down, or use language names with flags. Once you are done, click the save button to store your widget settings.
If you are getting a 404 error when you are accessing the posts, you need to reset your permalinks. Refresh the permalinks by going to Settings->Permalinks and set the default permalinks of the site and save. After that use a different permalink name and press the save button one more time.
By default, WordPress uses Gravatar service to display user’s profile picture. Your profile picture is based on your email address. If you do not have a gravatar account then your profile picture will be replaced with a default image placeholder which is called “Mystery Man”.But there are times when you may want to use a different avatar on a specific site but don’t want to change your Gravatar image.
In some instances WordPress site admins choose to disable the service for whatever reason, but there is a way to give users more avatar options without turning Gravatar off.
You can try use some WordPress plugins that allow to change user’s profile picture.In this article we will present two alternative to Gravatar: Simple Local Avatars and WP Social Avatar.
Simple Local Avatars
This plugin adds an avatar upload field to user profiles if the current user has media permissions. Also generates requested sizes on demand just like Gravatar. It is simple and lightweight.
Just edit a user profile, and scroll down to the new “Avatar” field. The plug-in will take care of cropping and sizing.
WP Social Avatar includes a settings panel under the Users menu that allows administrators to set the minimum role/capabilities required to use social avatars.The plugin does not require Facebook or G+ authentication in order to set your avatar, so it’s just as convenient to use as Gravatar. It also does not disable Gravatar for users who prefer it.
