Hi all,

today I got asked if I could fix the details of a WordPress system. I explain it better; A blog is built and the plugins load fast etc and all is working.....well nearly working. A possible client asked me if I could get that blog/ecommerce shop and make it works perfectly.

It is not about fixing bugs in Java but about avoid his blog/shop fails, it uses WordPress. I suppose, it is just go to the logs of WordPress, look at the error and search a solution in a search engine, like when in Java we check the logs.

The problem is that in the IT perfectly is a risky word, and he doesnt knows about the field and he just doesnt want have any more problems with his blog.

Any advice before tell him that I can help, please?

Regards, Isaac

Based on your other posts about Wordpress, the best professional advice you can probably give him is to find somebody who understands Wordpress and ask them to look at it. Or you might consider doing the same e.g. find somebody who knows about Wordpress and its plugins and get them to help. If this guy's business depends on his e-commerce site working reliably and securely (there are serious legal implications in many countries if you accidentally leak confidential information like banking details), then you shouldn't start hacking around in there unless you understand what you're doing.

Yes I agree. The kind of error I think he has are like this ones: error I think the most helpful(because he has been a year looking for a "friend" for a little bit of help but nobody find the time).The shop it is like a personal project he has no sells involved and no traffic. He told me that if it works is ok else is ok too.

I could tell him that I could having a look into technical issues in the logs and fix it, but if he wants to do it seriously and go into payments etc, he should look for a expert WordPress developer.

I want to explain him that the application that never fails is difficult to get.....

Any more advice, please?
