  • I want my Area Guide blog page to be in a grid format. I think Post Grid is how I do this, but I can’t view it’s current settings. When I try to click on any of the tabs in the gray area, nothing happens. Any ideas? I created a separate page to experiment with post grid and it won’t allow me to make changes or view the settings either.

  • Update: I logged into my Dashboard and went to Appearance > Themes. GeneratePress was listed, but the graphics were gone and it looked strange. I went to “Add New Them” and chose “GeneratePress”. The theme updated and my site is working again. So weird, but glad to have it back in business!

  • My website is a white screen. When I try to access it via the Dashboard I get this message, “The theme directory “generatepress” does not exist.”. Any ideas? It’s I have tried disabling Wordfence and updating WordPress, but still get the white screen and same message.

  • How can I get an attractive mobile menu for my site? It doesn’t have to be complicated. The one Alan provides us with the word “MENU” beside it would work great. Right now my “testers” don’t always know the blue hamburger is the menu, but I can’t figure out how to add a label.

    Thank you for your help!


  • Right, Sherene! In fact you’ve made me think that I need to add “Florida”, even though I say Disney World. People don’t always know which Disney property is the Florida one :).

  • Hi All! I have been following Vacation Soup on Facebook for awhile. Alan is great about posting our blog posts there and most make me want to pack a bag and head your way! Some don’t use the location name in the blog title though, which makes me less interested. It may just be personal preference, but for me the location name gives a point of…[Read more]

  • I’ve gotten a bit frustrated with formatting on longer blog posts that I write via the Vacation Soup plug-in. Can I write the post using Elementor instead and then share it with Vacation Soup? If so, how would I do that?



  • Ok. Thank you, Francis! I’ll keep posting with the Soup then :).


  • Alan, do you want all of our blog posts for The Soup? I posted a graphic quoting a review yesterday and then later thought you probably don’t want that since it’s very specific to my house. Today I blogged about creating your own Rose Gold Minnie Mouse Ears because it’s a hot topic right now among Disney lovers. I only put it on my website, not…[Read more]

  • Is there a way to password protect the section of a page? For example, I’d like to add a password protected “leave a review” section at the top of my reviews page rather than put it on a whole other page. I know how to password protect a whole page, but not just a section of the page. I can’t find a plug-in that does this. Any ideas?



  • I decided to encourage Google to recrawl my site today by doing the following I found on a forum. I did option 1 and it seems to have worked.:

    Here is a link with additional information about the Fetch as Google Tool: You’ll need a Google account to do any of this.


  • I know I read this somewhere, but can’t seem to find the solution again. I went to Customize in WordPress and changed “Free Vacation Rental Website” as my site title to “Gathering Houses near Disney”. I am still seeing “Free Vacation Rental Website” on Google searches and when I copy and paste a link to the site on Facebook. This is also happening…[Read more]

  • Hi! I see my homes near Disney World on VS. When I click on either one, along the right side of the screen are homes listed from locations in Florida that are very far away from Disney World and even one in France. I know VS is a work in progress, so I’m hoping your goal is to eventually only show homes within a very small radius of the user’s…[Read more]

  • I think I get the prize for taking the longest to finish! Here’s my site: Thank you, Alan, for generously providing your template, forum help, and instructional videos. I can’t believe I actually have a website and it looks pretty good. I look forward to adding more content and being a part of the soup!

  • Hi! My footer menu doesn’t work in mobile view. I see the icon, but nothing happens when I touch it. Works just fine on desktop. Any ideas?



  • Shannon Knight replied to the topic Maximum Guests in the forum The Soup 1 year, 5 months ago

    Woo hoo! Thank you!

  • VS only goes up to 15 guests. My homes sleep 16. Can higher numbers be added to the menu, please?

  • Hi! I think this is my last unresolved issue and then I’m ready to join The Soup! Please take a look at When I go to a reviews page, the “Our Properties” drop down menu interferes with the words on the page and I’m unable to view the menu properly or click on the last choice in the drop down. The menu is working correctly…[Read more]

  • This issue has mysteriously resolved itself for now. Lucky me!
