I stumbled upon this while trying to create a custom page template on my WordPress website. The solution i found to that had given me quite a number of options so i thought it only fair to explain how to do this as well. Doing this usually depends on your hosting company, however the processes are very similar or rather the same.
Step #1: Log into your cPanel account, locate file manager under files. Once this opens, locate your public_html folder.
Step #2: This next stage depends on what file you want to edit. However, all you need to when you find the file you want to edit is right click and click edit. That’s all.

I stumbled upon this while trying to create a custom page template on my WordPress website. The solution i found to that had given me quite a number of options so i thought it only fair to explain how to do this as well. There are numerous ways to do this but the easiest way is to download Filezilla, an open source FTP client.
What you need:
Your website ftp address (usually ftp://example.com if your URL is http://example.com)
Your ftp username
Your ftp password
Step #1: Enter in all the right details and connect to your server. That’s all, you are in.
What you do next depends on what you want to achieve.
I realised just this past week that this tiny activity is often overlooked, meanwhile it could have a negative impact on one’s account security.
To check now, simply click this: https://myaccount.google.com/permissions – this takes you straight to the applications page that have one access or the other to your google mail/account. If you see any application you don’t need or have not used in a long time.
Click on it to reveal the ‘remove access’ option. Click on ‘remove access to proceed’.
P.S: If you have other frequently used online services like twitter, zapier, facebook, etc? Go review the apps you gave permission to now. That option can usually be found under settings, applications/security/permissions.

I wanted to send a mail to everyone who signed up on my form. I considered copying and pasting each email address before stumbling on the solution which was right there on my typeform dashboard. Follow these steps:
Step #1: On your dashboard, navigate to the workspace you want to export its’ results.
Step #2: Click on results located at the top middle section of your page
Step #3: You will see two options; summary and responses. Click on responses. Look down left and you will see the option to ‘download all responses’, click on that. Follow the prompt, select your output file version and download.
While working on a charity website, i could not change the plugin’s donations form page url to my preferred word. I wanted to keep the page but redirect to another. A quick search and i stumbled on this guide from wpbeginner which totally fixed this headache for me with 3 clicks.
Step #1: Download/install and activate a redirection plugin. We recommend ‘page links to‘ by Mark Jaquith.
Step #2: Go to all posts or all pages, click ‘edit’ on the particular post or page you want to redirect.
Step #3: At the bottom of the post or page, you will see the ‘page links to’ widget. Input the URL you want and save page. That’s all.
This was one hell of a rabbit hole that took me hours due to no programming experience. However i simply followed the directions in this link and hurray i achieved what i wanted. Please note, after uploading the custompage.php file, i used the text editor in my cpanel file manager to add the codes, not ftp.
Step #1: Open a plain text editor on your PC and add this line of code:
<?php /* Template Name: CustomPageMary */ ?>
Change ‘CustomPageMary’ to any name you want. Click to save file and add .php to the end of the file name.
Step #3: On the left hand side, look for public.html folder if you have more than one website. Otherwise locate your website, go to the current theme or child theme folder, look for the /wp-content/themes/ directory and upload the custom theme you created earlier in your notepad to this directory.
Step #4: Log into your website admin dashboard and go to pages to create a new page. On the right hand side of the new page you are creating, look for the ‘template’ checkbox under the page attributes widget. Select the custom template you created, add content to your page and click publish. Thats’ all,
This was not a good rabbit hole to enter because i was battling with the full code generated by typeform, forgetting to separate head from body html codes. This link has the easiest answer to achieve that.
