So that made a huge difference. Right before I made the change
And 50 minutes later
I don’t know why the numbers for earlier 15 minute segments don’t match up, but the bottom line is that the graph is now quiet (and I did do some searches and accessed images on the site during that time).
I guess this has been going on since analytics were…[Read more]
Edited to add a big THANK YOU to Tim for find this!
So I looked at my site and see masses of throttling
I’m off to comment out the code your friend suggested to see if that helps.
I’m assuming that just turning off public access to analytics wouldn’t do it – that it’s still generating the stuff, just not sharing it?
Sometimes I wonder if I’m retarded for keeping my port up there, but honestly they haven’t started doing the really bad stuff like Istock, so I’m allowing myself a small allowance of retardation.
If it’s earning you money and you’re getting paid, there’s nothing wrong with that 🙂 Perhaps if enough other people leave you’ll see a…[Read more]
You do – yea!
However you need to look at your image pages – I’m not seeing prices on the two with previews and there are for with none, but which have prices
That will list all your images.
I don’t have an answer to your plugin question, but I would urge you to think about posting a huge stream of automated stuff – I think it works much better when there are some highlights and not too many at once.
I have unfollowed people a couple of times when I was sick of a meaningless stream of automated posts.
Was this a rhetorical question? 🙂
I don’t sell through Fotolia any more, but even for a loathed area like Categories (such a pain on most sites to find a decent fit; Bigstock had the right idea by automating choices, but I prefer it when the site uses keywords to do it for you) Fotolia stood out with a bizarro world view in their list.
sorry about the bogus links. I’ve fixed them (although I can’t be certain they’re the same ones I intended to post before).
If you aren’t seeing ImageMagick in the Process Images tab (at the top left), and if you have tried to use the BlueHost cPanel to enable it, contact BlueHost support to get it straightened out. I once had to do that for a…[Read more]
Great to see another site to add to the network. If you can add a link to your site to your profile it’ll help other people map your site to your posts.
There is obviously no requirement to have any experience selling through the agencies, but if you are not familiar with the issues of what is and is not OK for selling with a…[Read more]
from the look of your page, it appears you have deleted all your image categories – not even the default ones are there.
You can get the defaults back (including Featured Images as a category) by switching to any other theme and then back to Symbiostock. It will recreate the defaults for you.
In general, you can create categories as you upload…[Read more]
It can feel very intimidating at first – and I know Leo had in the past mentioned wanting to offer a hosted solution that would only require the site owner to upload files, just for the person such as you who found the current site building too complex.
There is a project one site owner has to offer a co-op to alleviate a lot of the leg…[Read more]
That will be dependent on server settings – I have many 25 MB images that are well over 21 megapixels (panoramas and such). You need memory for ImageMagick. There are some threads here on this:
I would use the global search
with terms you’re interested in and then pick some sites by their images. Also, Cascoly’s list has the promoted keywords by site
If a site “promotes” a keyword, it’s likely to be a focus in their portfolio
24 bit png is generally much larger than JPEG, but perhaps you used 8 bit?
At any rate, my 80×80 avatar is only 5K, 100×100 is 7K – just using Save for Web in Photoshop. If you were to save a color profile with the JPG that could bump the size way up – for avatars you want to avoid any metadata to keep the file size small.
I realize it doesn’t…[Read more]
Most of those sorts of things are done with widgets in various areas on the page – home page above content, home page below, etc.
You remove the widget from the sidebar and you’re all set. Appearance – > Widgets
Right now my network’s off, but what I was seeing is that I’d type in search term and there’d be a looong wait before anything showed up, even the results from my own site.
I wouldn’t mind if my results showed fast and other stuff took a bit to load, but the site looks totally unresponsive when you get no results at all for 20 seconds or…[Read more]
So my site is slow with the network even after emptying symbiostock_xml_cache
Symbiostock 3.2.7 (with a few code changes for appearance tweaks)
Dragonfly (with bunches of CSS mods)

When I visited your site I saw a home page (I entered the url for /customer-licence-and-file-management-area/ manually and that page looks different from the home page I started with
Do you only see the wrong page when you’re logged in or all the time? And are you using the home page generator to set your site up?
I had a hard time deleting the files so I renamed the folder as cascoly suggested.
I didn’t time things (were you just checking with a stopwatch or is there some timer function somewhere in wordpress?) but even with only 4 sites added back (two that were fast before and two slow) my searches were noticeably slower – even though after the first…[Read more]
