IT: WordPress system

This page collects some more or less useful notes on the OUUEG WordPress system.

Key Themes and Plugins

Our theme is the “OUUEG” theme, a child to the commercial “Betheme”. Marko sponsored the purchase of the $59 commercial theme. The original theme comes with a few required plug-ins.

The key plug-ins we use are:

  • CiviCRM: our membership database and CRM (customer relationship management)
  • Captcha by BestWebSoft: ensures every account creation is actually a real one and removes account spamming
  • Slider Revolution (comes with Betheme): good looking slideshows for page titles
  • LayerSlider WP (comes with Betheme): should be disabled as we don’t use it.
  • WordPress Access Control: to grant committee members access to the backend and CiviCRM.
  • SocialLogin: nice to have, but at time of writing hardly used.

Plug-in incompatibility: CiviCRM – Slider Revolution

Slider revolution defines in wp-content/plugins/revslider/admin/assets/css/global.css a CSS property

.ui-dialog { z-index: 1000102 !important; }

This needs commenting out after every update of the plug-in:

/* .ui-dialog { z-index: 1000102 !important; } */
