WordPress Issues and Possible Solutions

In this post I have gathered at one place various possible solutions to WordPress issues I have been challenged with recently.

The need to use SSL for all WordPress sites, to get a higher page rank at Google and avoid unsafe label is being addressed on the web.

The e-mail Problem

It is becoming more frequent that certain mail-servers block all mail sent out from a WordPress website. I have had to address this issue and find solutions for two different websites in two different countries dealing with two different mail-servers. The solutions have not been optimal but kind-of-work. Here are other possible solutions I have not looked at fully.

Featured Image Issue

Running a multisite WordPress with 10 different pages, over 50 editors and authors, and up to 7 daily posts, trying to keep the format and look uniform, without daily supervision can be hard. One of the most complex issue is to have writers use Featured image on all posts. Few possible solutions are available. I have not tried them all (yet).
