Missing or invalid site address

I have a multisite with parked subdomains. The IPs on the parked domains are all set to point to the admin/main site, the DNS likewise. Two subdomains were set up last year seem to work fine. Adding two more now fail returning the error ‘Missing or invalid site address’.

The wp-config seems to be correctly set for domains and the URL seems to be correct in phpmyadmin. Disabling plugins has no effect, restoring from backup has no effect, but I haven’t been using the site for some weeks. I am the only admin. The webhost support looked into it but can’t see the problem and tell me it’s not server related (ie not their problem).

Users (erroneously) type a short URL in the Google search box instead of the address bar. How to make it navigate instead of showing search results?

I’m using a URL shortener to publish pronounceable URLs for my pages so I can tell people something like, "Visit mydomain.com/slug to solve that problem." If people go to the address bar of their browser and enter mydomain.com/slug URL there, then the shortened URL works, and it redirects them to the intended destination page. But if a non-technical user goes to the Google search page and enters mydomain.com/slug into the search box there, apparently, Google apparently isn’t smart enough to recognize that they typed in a URL. It tries instead to search for the URL as keywords and comes back with a list of search results.

When I click "New Tab" in my browser, I know the difference between the address bar and the search box, but many non-technical users don’t, and Google gives the same instructions in both places. Both locations claim to accept both search terms and URLs, but apparently they have different logic for determining which is which. For them to behave differently and not follow the URL when it’s typed into the search box instead of the browser address bar seems to be a fatal flaw in the entire concept of shortened URLs – unless there’s something else I can do to make them work regardless of which field someone types them into. Certainly I can’t be the only one facing this.

What can I do to teach Google that my shortened URL is indeed a URL and when someone types it in the search box, it should go to the place where that URL redirects to?

Can you hide a server IP address using Cloudflare?

I am in the UK and looking for a new server for my websites. Pricing in the UK is really expensive but I stuck with the UK as that is where my main audience is. I noticed that with providers like Hetzner in Germany I can get a better server and 1/2 the price.

Can I host the websites in Germany but still do well in search engine rankings in the UK? It has been suggested that using Cloudflare will ultimately hide the true server location and the search engines then base the best location on website characteristics such as language, topic and the like.

Google change of address tool from .co.uk to .com resulted in huge derank

December 2020 I moved a site from a .co.uk to a .com. No other changes, simple 301 redirect and use of the tool in google webmaster tools. The site had existed since 2006 and was the de facto site in the vertical, meaning I had plenty of P1s on google for medium tail keywords.

Now, 2.5 months later I am still hugely deranked for 10,000s of key words, and as a result I’ve dropped 40% of my traffic.

I was wondering whether anyone had any advice. Obviously this is a huge issue for me as it’s my livelihood I’ve built up over 15 years of hard work. I followed googles direction perfectly (my background is actually web dev and SEO) and it’s still deranked me.

I’m not sure the linking policy here, but the site is tyrereviews dot com, it used to be tyrereviews dot couk, and for example we used to rank 1 or 2 for the search "michelin primacy 4" in google UK however we are now page 2.

The new .com domain is targeted properly to the UK in webmaster tools too.

This is the same for many many medium tail keywords.

Capture User Email Address When Filling Out Form

We have a snippet of code that was provided by an optimization platform company we use that provides a real-time personalization to our website.

The user will fill out a form (Gravity Forms) and then be sent to one of our WordPress Thank You pages.

This code will be added to the Thank You page, but needs to be updated to capture the user’s email address once the Gravity Form has been completed:

<img src="//dasd65f4ds3e25u.cloudfront.net/pc/p5w6g1jy/?e=[customer's email address]" id="__tms_pc" height="1" width="1" /> 

Would you be able to help me replace the "customer’s email address" text with the appropriate code that will be able to capture each user’s email address when they fill out the form?

Is there a PHP string of code that could be used to replace the "customer’s email address" text? I have not been able to find a concrete answer while doing some research for this.

Pls how do I setup a from and to address and allow my UPS integrated solution calculate shipping based off the two addresses? [closed]

So, I am setting up a website to handle shipping services similar to DHL and UPS, but I am also using UPS services to handle the shipping cost through their API to my specific users, and I want to be able to calculate shipping by allowing users to enter a from and to shipping address, and calculate the shipping based on the distance. Any help would be much appreciated.

Should I worry about exposing my server’s IP address?

I currently use Cloudflare for DNS, and they advertise that they will hide the IP address of my server if I proxy through them. Should I worry about this since the IP points to a dedicated server (not a home network or anything)?
Are there any security concerns or general risks associated with exposing a server’s IP address?

First time role playing, how to I address this problem?

So I am brand new the role playing as I am really shy and normally don’t like to tell my stories to other. I am role-playing with my friend and her siblings and I have a problem. I have added my character into an already existing, huge lore, place. And my friend is trying to make my character do things that would not fit my narrative. For example my character has a boyfriend and this guy is very specific to her background as they are kinda tied together by fate through different lives. Every time my OC dies, she will meet her boyfriend in the next universe, her could be her lover, friend, or enemy. My friend forced me to break up with the OC’s boyfriend and now is trying to forcefully get my OC to date a girl. I told her this character is strictly heterosexual and honestly is really mainly attracted to her boyfriend but my friend will not listen. I have other OCs who are LGBTQA+, but she is so admit on the straight one. I don’t want to cause trouble but they are constantly forcing my OC to do things out of character that I have created because she is my character. And I don’t know what to do? I don’t want to be mean or cause drama but I am stuck!

Address finder for website, cheap/budget options for the UK

Hi All,

This is my first post and I have no web design or HTML experience so please excuse the naive nature of this question. I'm building a website with my friend and we require a postcode or address finder for the UK (initially). It's a very common functionality on many different websites but on researching the topic, I was surprised most of the APIs like Postcodes.io, Adressian, getaddress – charge by number of searches made. Now don't get me wrong, they're entitled to charge for these…
