We have built your website, you have reviewed the website, and we have made final changes to your website. Now what? Now we go live with your website! Wondering how that happens, well here is the process that happens behind the scenes that we use to make your website live:
1) We do a final check on the website – test the forms, check formatting, etc.
2) We use your old domain registrar login information (wherever you previously registered your domain names)
3) On launch night we login to wherever you registered your old domain and change a setting for whichever domains you want to point to the new website.
4) Within 48 hours the settings have updated across the internet and the site is live.
5) We do another check to make sure there are no broken links, forms are working, no broken images, etc. that may have occurred during the transition.
During this process you may receive a couple test emails from us submitting forms on your website. Please forward these emails to us as soon as your receive them so we can confirm your forms are working.
Now your new website is live!
Remember, if you have any further changes we can make them after we get you live…depending on your plan you have a certain amount of changes per month included on your maintenance plan going forward that we can make for you (of course you can always make changes on your own anytime as well).
Every SiteTap website comes with a free add-on called “Staff” located in the side menu in your website backend. Below are some examples of what this looks like along with how to add Staff to your website.
How to add Staff?
Step 1) In your backend, click “Staff” in the left menu.
Step 2) Click “Departments” and add each location or department in your organization
Step 3) Click “Add New”
Step 4) Give each staff member a Title, Bio, and which ever “Staff member details” that you want on the right side of the screen below.
Step 5) Click “Publish” or “Update”
What Size Should the Staff Images Be?
The ideal size, as shown in the plugin screenshots, is 250×200. However a variety of image sizes will work. To preserve the formatting, make sure all your images are uniform in size, particularly if you are using the Staffer grid layout.
How Do I Use Staffer’s Shortcodes?
There are two ways to use shortcodes: 1) standard method. 2) manual method.
In the default method, you can use shortcodes while keeping Staffer’s archive pages enabled. If you want to use shortcodes exclusively, check the “Manual Method” option in the Staffer Options panel to disable the main “Staff” page.
Follow this format for shortcodes:
The above example would output all of the staff listings in default order.
To fine-tune, you can use parameters:
[staffer number="5" department="slug"]
In the above example, “number” refers to the number of entries to retrieve, and “department” refers to the department name slug. For instance, if you only wanted to show a list of members in department term with the “management” slug, you would pass “management” as a parameter.
Other parameters include “order” and “orderby” — and all parameters are optional.
Using the extra parameters, you could reorder the entries using WP_Query’s order and orderby parameters.
For example, if you wanted to display 50 staff members, ordered by name alphabetically, you would do the following:
[staffer number="50" order="ASC" orderby="name"]

This signature is independent of any signature you append to messages you send from Gmail on the web.
- Open your Inbox or another labeled list of conversations.
- Touch Menu > More > Settings > Signature.
