comment Pretty product permalinks with Woocommerce shop/category/subcategory/product-name
In my opinion, Woocommerce + WordPress is a "challenging" combination when it comes to customizing URL structure. In any case, somebody might find my question here enlightening support.woothemes.com/hc/communities/public/questions/…

comment Remove 'product' & 'product-cateogory' from url - woocommerce
I'm looking for the same answer. The problem is "product-category" is the default setting. I did a grep through all the files for "product-category" and still can't figure it out. There's no "product-category" in .htaccess either. IMO, this is a Wordpress question, as the plugin depends on WordPress permalink settings. And it's not like Woocommerce is an obscure plugin.

comment How does WordPress search work behind the scenes?
For big/popular blogs, searching all the content is pretty unrealistic. What's the recommended way to speed this up without just deleting the " OR (...)" from query.php? Should I submit a new question or can you expand your answer?

Hi Alexander. For the record, I asked the question several months ago and don't have time to study this further. But I'm pretty sure people will find your excellent answer helpful.

comment Is it safe to run wp-cron.php twice if the first instance takes too long?
@s_ha_dum I don't know. First time I executed it from the command line, it finished in 5-10 seconds. But I was watching it run on "top" and I noticed one time it was going to run for over 10 minutes so I decided it would be best to not have wp-cron.php overlap itself. Then again, I have no idea how much time wp-cron.php NEEDS. I could pick an arbitrary time like 30 minutes but I know this blogger might want to have a deal post to her blog while she's driving to the store, her business is very time-sensitive like that. I've never actually scheduled a post myself so this is all new to me.

@s_ha_dum "pretty broad and open-ended" I was just thinking the same thing about wp-cron.php. There doesn't seem to be any standard recommended way to run it. Perhaps out of respect for various web hosts, various control panels, varying levels of access to the server, various posting scedule, etc.

@s_ha_dum All the tutorials I've found, they are all slightly different. Some say do 30 mins. Some say do an hour. What if a blogger needs to schedule a post to run in 15 minutes and wp-cron.php only runs every 30 mins. Do you see how that's a problem if the previous instance of wp-cron.php didn't have time to finish? What am I doing? Ask whoever wrote wp-cron.php ;-) The blogger is constantly posting updates through the day. So for example, she's taking a trip tomorrow and needs to schedule posts while she's offline. But scheduling posts is part of her business.
