Critical WordPress settings before a site goes live

There are a few critical WordPress settings that must be checked before taking a site live. They are the following:

  • Under Settings -> Reading – be sure that the box next to ” Discourage search engines from indexing this site” is unchecked
  • Under Settings -> General
    • Make sure the site title is correct
    • Make sure the Tagline is either blank, or has a good description of the nonprofit in it
    • Be sure that the nonprofit’s email address is listed in the Email Address field
  • Under Settings -> Permalink – be sure that the “Day and name” radio button is selected
  • Under Settings -> Privacy – be sure the Privacy Policy page is selected
  • Click on Users and locate the nonprofit’s username
    • Make sure that user is set as an Administrator
