Frequently Asked Questions

Do you provide Support for installing and setting up Wordpress?

No, We do not provide support for setting up self hosted copies of Wordpress from Wordpress.org. You should contact your web host or read the excellent documentation for help with this.

 

What kind of Wordpress content can I expect to be imported via the Wordpress Stack?

The Wordpress stack uses the Wordpress REST API to display your post and page content. This content is delivered in a rendered format similar to what you would expect from the Styled Text stack.  No external CSS or Javascript is passed to the stack. Wordpress plugins that produce slideshows, calendars or any other complicated purpose will not work in this scenario. So keep it simple and use styled text ONLY in posts and pages you want to display via the stack.

 

Can I use the WordPress Stack multiple times on the same page?

The answer is Yes and No. 
Yes, you can use it multiple times if you are using the "Single Post or Page" Page Type.
No, you cannot use it if using the more than one "All Posts" Page Type.
