How to Fix the WordPress Not Sending Emails Issue with Cpanel
A simple 2 step solution that can quickly fix the problem

This is a common problem if you have your email hosted on a different server to your website. The main problem is the settings on the server that can be accessed via Cpanel.

Step 1

Log into Cpanel and select Email Routing

Step 2

Select the domain the email is not working for, then select Remote Mail Exchanger

It is usually set to Automatically Detect and that usually selects the Local Mail Exchanger option. That would be the wrong option if you host your emails for example with Gmail.

How to Create Links to Sections on the Same Page in WordPress

Imagine the future where you click on the link and it takes you to the right section on the page that talks about what you searched for. This is my prediction of how the internet will evolve hopefully in the near future.

How to Create Links to Sections on the Same Page in WordPress​

You search on Google for Meta Tags. Microbite’s SEO page appears in the search results, you click the link and it takes you to the top of the page that talks about SEO, you then scroll down until you find the section talking about Meta Tags.

Now imagine the future where you click on the link and it takes you to the right section on the page that talks about Meta Tags. This is my prediction of how the internet will evolve hopefully in the near future.

Google can only take you to the relevant section on the webpage if you have set up unique ids for the different sections on your page. A lot of websites have not done this probably because it is not done automatically by WordPress or any other CMS.

How to Setup an ID

  • The id attribute can be used on any HTML element.
  • The id value is case-sensitive.
  • The id value must contain at least one character, and must not contain whitespace (spaces, tabs, etc.).

Troubleshooting - Div anchors scrolling too far

Sometimes, you will find that when you click on the section ID anchor link it will jump you slightly too far down or too high on the page. This is mainly due to a sticky header hiding the link or other padding issues.

If you are using WordPress there is a plugin called Page scroll to id. This plugin has an option to offset x amount of pixels. It also has the bonus feature to animate the scroll of the page which looks very nice.
