If you host your web sites on Reclaim Hosting you are not only going with the best service going, you get things like one click installs via cpanel of a suite of tools you won’t find elsewhere.

In addition to three of my calling card WordPress themes, there are a pair of new ones, yes you have a Double Double of SPLOTs you can have fully set up in your own domain, fully set up, and bearing demo content.

Yes, rather than starting with a vanilla Hello World site, manually uploading themes, adding plugins, setting options, you can get a completely working site for TRU Collector and TRU Writer.

I’ve been working with the high wizard Tim Owens on setting up command line instructions for installing these sites, using various exports (content as WordPress standard export, Widget settings using the Widget Import/Export plugin, and where needed, Customizer settings using Customizer Import/Export plugin.

The site you will get for TRU Collector is a copy of an original source demo site

And if you choose to install TRU Writer, you get a clone of this site:

The first item in each one includes information you might need for final customizing of your site (see Setting Up Your Image Collector SPLOT or Assembling your SPLOT Writer.

The one thing different from a blank install of WordPress via Installatron is that your Apps list will not log you directly into your site (a limit of what Tim can script) (for now?):

So if you try to log in here, you will need to enter the admin username or password. So it means on installing, you may want to save the admin login details:

Or you can modify after the fact using the wrench icon for the site listed in My Applications.

Or you can issue a password reset using your email address used for your reclaim account from the login screen.

Are you seeing double SPLOTs? You could… and much more clear than that in 2 clicks.


Featured Image: I did a google image search (with options for open licensed results) on the phrase “double spot” and landed on a bunch of images of what is called a double square spot moth. I chose one I saw in Wikimedia Commons, but traced its source to flickr — Double square-spot (sw) flickr photo by davidshort shared under a Creative Commons (BY) license.
