It happened to me today while updating to WordPress 5.3, so I thought of sharing the fix with all the people who are going to have this problem now and in the future.
Honestly, I should have thought about this better – but it’s an early Saturday morning and maybe my brain is still asleep.
I kept getting always the same error, even after 10 refreshes and attempts, even while trying to use /wp-login.php or /my-account to login as opposed to /wp-admin. And when you get the same behavior no matter how many times you refresh or try again… well, it should be easy to understand why!

I had the pleasure to speak at WordCamp Milano 2018, and I had a blast! I believe the topic was pretty interesting, so you all deserve a long post recap with actionable tips and screenshots to understand basic WooCommerce SEO (video of the presentation will be available soon).
The following WooCommerce Search Engine Optimization tips are mostly non technical, and are aimed at WordPress and WooCommerce users who never heard of “schema”, “long tail”, “301” and “hreflang” (although if you did, please have a read anyway, make sure to post a comment and contribute to this post with your expertise).
The thing is – SEO is never going to die. Besides, Google & co. constantly improve their website ranking algorithms. This means what you learned 5 years ago in regard to SEO might not work today, and what you learn today might not work in 2 years time… you get the point.
In this blog post, we will analyze and study 27 evergreen SEO factors for WooCommerce websites. These should be applied (or not applied, as there are many “not to do” tips as well) to your ecommerce website at all costs if you believe you deserve better ranking (who doesn’t?). And as they’re evergreen, they’re likely not to go away for a few years at least 🙂
Great – let’s take a look at what we’ve got here: awesome templates for personal portfolios, food and beverages blogs, cooking blogs, fashion blogs, lifestyle blogs, magazines, speakers, book clubs, travel and photography blogs, and so on… there is really a wide choice of topics out there!
But with the content being the number 1 objective for your blog, don’t forget you also need good functionalities and design features. By opting for a professional WordPress theme from the very beginning, for a little investment, you can get everything you need out of the box:
Responsive design + cross browser compatibility – very important for mobile browsing
Shortcodes to display content blocks in any page / post, which significantly speed up customization
Advanced customization settings – you can change typography, logo, navigation, slider, page templates, footer so that every detail is in line with your brand
Predefined page templates for various standard pages like customers’ testimonials, about page, contact page. Every page of your blog can look different
Compatibility with WordPress Customizer, so that you can view the amendments in real time
I had the pleasure to speak at the Dublin WordPress Meetup in March 2018. The presentation title was “How to Sell A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G with WordPress + WooCommerce”, aimed at both beginners and more advanced designers.
Some of those who are only starting with WordPress didn’t know you can transform ANY WordPress install into an Ecommerce website in a matter of minutes.
I had the pleasure to speak at WordCamp Rome 2017. Yes, the very first WordCamp in my hometown (I left Rome in 2007 to move to Ireland)!
I was super happy to present a talk called “The 10 Commandments of Content Marketing” (OMG how difficult it was to speak in English in front of my Italian friends…).
The talk covered my 5 years of content marketing, and how I’ve seen it all while creating content on my WordPress website: during the first 2 years I wasted time and energy to write blogs no one would read. Then I found my inspiration, my path, my content strategy – and in the last 3 years website traffic has risen from 0 to 15,000+ users (and still growing) per week. Now my blog is my only source of sales leads.
I first and foremost described what mistakes (sins) I made. What about saving 2 years of your life?
Then I listed the “10 Commandments of Content Marketing” – 10 simple tips you can take away to increase your website traffic and focus on the only purpose of content marketing: teaching.
I had the pleasure to co-organise the very first WordCamp Dublin this year. We welcomed 26 amazing speakers, 250 attendees, incredible sponsors and enjoyed a great venue and tasty food.
Just because organising, MCing, managing speakers and writing website content were not enough, I also decided to run a 45mins workshop titled “WooCommerce Customization Masterclass” and I have to say I received great feedback despite the lack of voice, sleep and energy (thank you)!
I spoke briefly about WooCommerce customization, my WooCommerce visual hook guides, the difference between snippets and plugins and finally demoed a few snippets to add, remove and move WooCommerce content to/from the Single Product Page.
I’ve been working online while travelling throughout South America for almost 3 months so far and I’ve had a lot of time to think about solopreneurship. After 5+ years as a sole trader, it’s now the right time to write my thoughts. I really hope to give you at least one idea, one tip you can take away.
I had the pleasure to present at #WCBelfast 2016. My 45mins presentation was titled “Content Marketing: How to Turn your WordPress Website into a Traffic Generation Tool” and I have to say I received great feedback (thank you!).
In this post, I’m about to show you why I invested 151hrs 39mins 1secs of my time to build #CustomizeWoo and another 50+ hours to publish the updated version in June 2019, who I’m willing to help, and what the course looks like from the “inside”.
These WordPress Portfolio Themes are recommended for photographers, graphic designers, web designers, artists and whoever has something cool to show on a website!
If you didn’t know, a portfolio website is an essential tool that should be able to generate more business and increase your personal brand awareness. There is no doubt that TODAY, a portfolio website is definitely more important than a CV, no matter what creative industry you work in.
Portfolio websites (and therefore themes) usually have a striking image-based and categorized portfolio section, from where each project can be accessed and studied. Besides, huge importance is given to the “about me” page, where the artist should be able to display her skills, abilities, photo and social media feeds. They should also focus on the most important call to action: “contact us”.
Well, we hope you like our collection of WordPress Portfolio themes. Enjoy 🙂
