The General Settings provides options for defining site wide settings in various areas.

In your WordPress Administration interface, navigate to Page Generator Pro > Settings

CSS Prefix

Whilst there is no evidence that search engines penalize sites that use a particular Plugin, mass page generator etc, some users prefer to hide that they are using Page Generator Pro.

The CSS Prefix option allows users to optionally define a unique string prefix to use for shortcode HTML and CSS output, instead of the default page-generator-pro prefix.

  • Defining your own prefix, such as your site name, will replace the default page-generator-pro prefix on frontend shortcode HTML and CSS output.
  • It does not change the plugin name.
  • The prefix supports letters and dashes only.  Any other characters entered will be removed.

Disable Custom Fields Dropdown on Pages

When any WordPress web site has a large number of Pages, and each Page has many Custom Fields (sometimes referred to as Post Meta data), there’s a known performance bottleneck – in WordPress – that slows down the load time when editing a Page, Post or Custom Post Type, as WordPress attempts to populate the Custom Field Key dropdown.

This UI functionality can safely be disabled, with no negative impact on third party Plugins, by enabling the Disable Custom Fields Dropdown on Pages option.

Change Page Parent Dropdown to ID Field

Don’t see this option? It’s new to Page Generator Pro 2.1.6 and higher.  Ensure that your license is valid, not expired and that you’ve updated to the latest version of the Plugin.

When any WordPress web site has a large number of Pages, there’s a known performance bottleneck – in WordPress – that slows down the load time when editing a Page, Post or Custom Post Type, as WordPress attempts to populate the Parent Page Attribute dropdown with every single WordPress Page.

This UI functionality can safely be replaced with an ID field, with no negative impact on third party Plugins, by enabling the Change Page Parent Dropdown to ID Field option.
