In this article are described the main differences between VideoTouch theme and SlimVideo theme.
1. Buddy Press compatibility. SlimVideo is compatible with Buddy Press when VideoTouch not. BOoh have front end submission but SlimVideo has a Buddy Press based submission when VideoTouch has a custom one.
2. Why not update VideoTouch. VideoTouch already has a custom submission so in order to integrate it with buddy press, we will have to change the submission also so the users will have to adapt to the new features, so we decided to create a new theme in order to not have conflict's with VideoTOuch users.
3. With the BuddyPress integration , it gives SlimVideo more user features. It's more made for comunities, like a social network.
When the theme is installed, we automatically add some pages to your WP installation, with page templates assigned to them. They can be found just by searching for "Front-end" keyword, to find a result like this:
If we try to edit one, you'll see that the needed page template was assigned for it.
So, we're good on this one. If you install BuddyPress, the user profile page and user settings page will not be needed, as we are going to use the plugin pages for this. You don't need to do no action.
Now, going further. The upload page linking, user login is done through a builder element named "User login". Our demos have it at the top of the page, and we always recommend to use it in the header (top part) of your website. To do so, we need to go to the Header settings and add it. The options you select for it don't really matter, it's a matter of choice. After this, you should see the User login with the links for your profile pages, video upload page, etc.
So, basically you don't need to do anything special. All pages are created and assigned on install, you just need to add the user element or buttons that link to the pages you want (upload video, settings, etc).
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.
There are several reasons why can a website run slow.
First of all, the more resources there are on a page - the longer this page will load. Heavy images, fonts, iframes, videos, or other external resources always make your page load slower.
The large number of plugins installed on a site can also affect the loading speed.
The total amount of posts or pages on a website does not affect the loading speed. Only the pages that display many posts inside them can be loaded slower.
So when you create your posts and pages always take care of the fact that the more stuffed they get - the slower they will load.
Sometimes the problem can be caused by the server.
You can always install a cache plugin to improve the loading speed of your website.
