Complaint and dispute resolution procedures

You can complain whether you are the sender or the recipient of an item, providing you have all the necessary details. Your complaint must be made within:


  • One month from receipt of an item within Ireland
  • Three months from posting of mail within Ireland
  • Six months from posting of international items
  • One month from the issue causing the complaint for non-mail-related complaints

If your complaint is outside these timelines but you have all relevant documentation, we will do our best to resolve the issue. We will keep your records for a minimum of two years. We will acknowledge receipt of a complaint within three working days with a unique enquiry number. We aim to resolve it within 10 working days but we promise to resolve your complaint within the following time frames:

  • 30 days for complaints relating to Ireland
  • 40 days for international destinations where electronic communication can be used
  • 60 days for all other international complaints

If your complaint is not resolved within the appropriate time frame, we will provide you with regular updates. If we do not meet the timescales set out, a payment of €15 may be available to you.

Weight guide

It is important to know how much your item weighs so you can attach the correct postage. The only way to be sure you have entered the correct weight is to weigh your item.

The Weight Guide below gives indicative weights for many common food items which you can use to help gauge the weight of your item.

If you send an item with insufficient postage for its weight, it will be returned to you with the loss of the original postage.

Intro # Intro

Post Formats is a theme feature introduced with Version 3.1. A Post Format is a piece of meta information that can be used by a theme to customize its presentation of a post. The Post Formats feature provides a standardized list of formats that are available to all themes that support the feature. Themes are not required to support every format on the list. New formats cannot be introduced by themes or even plugins. The standardization of this list provides both compatibility between numerous themes and an avenue for external blogging tools to access this feature in a consistent fashion.

In short, with a theme that supports Post Formats, a blogger can change how each post looks by choosing a Post Format from a radio-button list.

Using Asides as an example, in the past, a category called Asides was created, and posts were assigned that category, and then displayed differently based on styling rules from post_class() or from in_category(‘asides’). With Post Formats, the new approach allows a theme to add support for a Post Format (e.g. add_theme_support(‘post-formats’, array(‘aside’))), and then the post format can be selected in the Publish meta box when saving the post. A function call of get_post_format($post->ID) can be used to determine the format, and post_class() will also create the “format-asides” class, for pure-css styling.

В этом примере с использованием jQuery метода .load() мы при нажатии на элемент <button> (кнопка) с использованием AJAX запроса загружаем данные с сервера и размещаем, возвращенный HTML код внутри элемента <div>. Загружаемый файл («test.php») содержит следующий HTML код:

<h1>Заголовок первого уровня</h1>
<p>Обычный параграф</p>

Кроме того, мы в качестве параметра метода .load() задаем функцию обратного вызова, которая выводит в консоль браузера следующую информацию:

  • Строка соответствующая данным, присланным от сервера.
  • Строка соответствующая статусу запроса (в нашем случае success).
  • Свойство status объекта XMLHTTPRequest, содержащее числовой код состояния ответа от сервера (в нашем случае 200)
  • Свойство statusText объекта XMLHTTPRequest, содержащее сообщение о состоянии ответа, которое вернулось от HTTP сервера (в нашем случае OK).

Пример использования jQuery метода .load()

Рассмотрим пример, в котором мы загрузим и вставим лишь необходимую часть документа, а не весь документ.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
	<head>
		<title>Загрузка фрагмента документа методом .load()</title>
		<script src = "https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.1.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
		<script>
	$( document ).ready(function() {
	  $( "button:first" ).click(function() { // задаем функцию при нажатиии на первый элемент <button>
	    $( ".content" ).load( "test.html" ) // полностью загружаем страницу
	  })
	  $( "button:last" ).click(function() { // задаем функцию при нажатиии на последний элемент <button>
	    $( ".content" ).load( "test.html .first" ) // загружаем фрагмент страницы (содержимое элемента с классом .first)
	  })
	});
		</script>
	</head>
	<body>
		<button>All</button>
		<button>First</button>
		<div class = "content"></div>
	</body>
</html>

В этом примере с использованием jQuery метода .load() мы при нажатии на определенный элемент <button> (кнопка) с использованием AJAX запроса загружаем данные с сервера и размещаем, возвращенный HTML код внутри элемента <div> с классом .content. При нажатии на первую кнопку мы загружаем весь документ, а при нажатии на вторую лишь его часть (элемент с классом .first ). Загружаемый файл («test.html») содержит следующий HTML код:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
	<head>
		<meta charset = "UTF-8">
		<title>Тестовая страница</title>
	</head>
	<body>
		<div class = "first">
			Первый блок
			<script>
				alert("hello world");
			</script>
		</div>
		<div class = "second">
			Второй блок
		</div>
	</body>
</html>

Обратите внимание, на важный момент, что в первом случае (при загрузке всего документа) скрипт, размещенный в элементе с классом .first срабатывает, а во втором (при загрузке фрагмента документа) не срабатывает, не смотря на то, что скрипт размещен в этом фрагменте. Результат нашего примера:

Default Post Types # Default Post Types

The default post types that are always included within a WordPress installation unless otherwise removed are:

  • Posts
  • Pages
  • Attachments
  • Revisions
  • Navigation Menus
  • Custom CSS
  • Changesets

Posts

A post in WordPress is a post type that is typical for, and most used by blogs. Posts are normally displayed in a blog in reverse sequential order by time (newest posts first). Posts are also used for creating RSS feeds.

Pages

A page is similar to posts however they have some very important differences. Pages aren’t displayed in a reversed time-based order. They can also be placed into a hierarchical order where a page can be the parent or child of another page creating a page structure. Traditionally, pages also do not make use of categories and tags like posts do.

Attachments

Attachments are another post type that is special as these hold information about any media that is uploaded to your WordPress website. Not only is the main post information stored where other posts are, attachments also make use of the wp_postmeta table for storing extra information like metadata for images and videos that you’ve added.

Revisions

Revisions are a particularly special post type as they are used to create a history of other post types in case you make a mistake and want to rollback to a previous version. Whilst you technically can’t edit revisions directly unless you restore a revision, they are editable just like posts and are stored in the wp_posts table like any other post type.

Menus

Menus in WordPress are lists of links that can be used to navigate your website. This allows you to create custom lists of links to various locations on your website that is used by your visitors and are edited in the theme section of the dashboard away from traditional post types like posts or pages.

Custom CSS


Custom CSS is a theme specific post type used to store CSS saved from The Customizers Additional CSS screen. Each theme can have its own custom CSS post but only the active themes `custom_css` post is actually used.

Changesets

Changesets are similar to revisions but specifically for the Customizer. This is to keep the Customizer in a persistent state. WordPress will attempt to keep content changes made through the Customizer during the user session in a `customize_changeset` post and attempt to restore them should you exit your current session.

Template Files # Template Files

By default WordPress makes use of the index.php, single.php and archive.php files in a theme to display posts of any type of the front-end of a website. However, if you’ve made a custom post type, you may find that you want to show this information in a different way to other types. You can do this by using post type specific custom templates within your theme.

If you create a post type called Books like in the example above, you can create a template file called single-books.php which will show the individual book posts that you publish. Again, to show all your books in a custom archive page (where they are all listed), you can create an archive-books.php template file and this will show all the book posts that you’ve published.

Trivia

By appearing in three Best Picture Oscar nominees in 2017, Форма воды (2017), Назови меня своим именем (2017) and this film, Michael Stuhlbarg overtook co-star Meryl Streep, in number of Best Picture nominees that each has appeared in.

Goofs

When Bob Haldeman calls Katharine Graham, he tells her that «…we have a bit of an issue here.» The colloquial misuse of «issue» to mean «problem» did not begin to become normalized in American English until the late 1980s/early 1990s. See more »

Crazy Credits

The DVD opens with the standard credits from the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security warning against pirating home video recordings and stating «Piracy is not a victimless crime,» but the whole movie is about an individual who steals intellectual property and is presented as a hero for doing so.

Supported Formats # Supported Formats

The following Post Formats are available for users to choose from, if the theme enables support for them.

Note that while the actual post content entry won’t change, the theme can use this user choice to display the post differently based on the format chosen. For example, a theme could leave off the display of the title for a “Status” post. How things are displayed is entirely up to the theme, but here are some general guidelines.

  • aside – Typically styled without a title. Similar to a Facebook note update.
  • gallery – A gallery of images. Post will likely contain a gallery shortcode and will have image attachments.
  • link – A link to another site. Themes may wish to use the first <a href=””> tag in the post content as the external link for that post. An alternative approach could be if the post consists only of a URL, then that will be the URL and the title (post_title) will be the name attached to the anchor for it.
  • image – A single image. The first <img /> tag in the post could be considered the image. Alternatively, if the post consists only of a URL, that will be the image URL and the title of the post (post_title) will be the title attribute for the image.
  • quote – A quotation. Probably will contain a blockquote holding the quote content. Alternatively, the quote may be just the content, with the source/author being the title.
  • status – A short status update, similar to a Twitter status update.
  • video – A single video or video playlist. The first <video /> tag or object/embed in the post content could be considered the video. Alternatively, if the post consists only of a URL, that will be the video URL. May also contain the video as an attachment to the post, if video support is enabled on the blog (like via a plugin).
  • audio – An audio file or playlist. Could be used for Podcasting.
  • chat – A chat transcript, like so:

Note: When writing or editing a Post, Standard is used to designate that no Post Format is specified. Also if a format is specified that is invalid then standard (no format) will be used.

What are you sending?

An Post divides mail into four categories to determine the cost of its delivery:

Once your item exceeds the size or weight limit of any category, it automatically moves to the next category of post. Get more information on:

  • Sending Books Abroad
  • Sending to the Blind
  • Prohibited Items

Letters and postcards

The letter/postcard rate of postage applies to items no larger in size than C5, the size of an envelope containing a folded A4 sheet of paper. Most letters, postcards, bills, statements and greeting cards fall into this category.

To qualify for this rate of postage, items must weigh no more than 100g and meet the following size requirements:

  • Minimum: 140mm long, 90mm wide, 0.18mm deep (with a tolerance of 2mm)
  • Maximum: 235mm long, 162mm wide, 5mm deep

Small items must be inserted into an envelope of at least the minimum dimensions to meet regulations or they may be charged at the parcel rate.

Large envelopes

The large envelope rate of postage applies to flat items, such as an A4 sheet of standard paper. Documents, brochures, magazines, CDs and DVDs fall into this category.

To qualify for this rate of postage, items must weigh no more than 500g and meet the following size requirements:

  • Minimum: 140mm long, 90mm wide, 0.18mm deep (with a tolerance of 2mm)
  • Maximum: 370mm long, 250mm wide; 23mm deep

Packets

To qualify for the packet rate of postage, items must weigh no more than 2kg. Gifts, books, product samples, posters and prints in cylindrical tubes will usually fall into this category. They must meet the following packet size requirements:

  • Minimum: 100mm long x 70mm high x 25mm deep
  • Maximum: a combined length, height and depth of 900mm (no individual dimension can exceed 600mm, with a tolerance of 2mm)
  • Tube form: the length plus twice the diameter must be less than 1040mm with no one dimension exceeding 900mm (with a tolerance of 2mm)

Parcels

The parcel rate of postage applies to items weighing up to 20kg. Large, boxed items such as electrical goods, components and irregularly-shaped and cylindrically-shaped items such as large posters fall into this category. The following are the maximum dimensions:

  • Length 1.5 metres
  • Length + girth 3 metres (where the girth equals 2 x )

Dimensional weight

Large but light parcels, such as a box of pillows, may be charged according to their dimensional weight to reflect the full cost of their transport.

To calculate the dimensional weight, multiply the length in centimetres by the width by the depth and divide by 6,000. For example, the dimensional weight of a 10kg item, which is 62cm long, 49cm wide and 39cm deep is (62x49x39)/6000 = 19.75. This is rounded up to 20, giving a dimensional weight of 20kg.

Ten tips for sending your post and parcels

You’ve put a lot of thought and care into what you are sending so follow these ten tips to make sure your item is delivered on time:

  1. Choose the service that best matches your needs, be they cost, speed or security
  2. Ensure the destination address on your item is current, correct and complete
  3. If posting to Dublin, include the postal district number, for example Dublin 3, and add the Eircode
  4. Put a return address in the top left hand corner so undelivered mail can be sent back
  5. Attach the correct postage for the size and weight of your item and its destination
  6. Seal the envelope or secure the parcel to ensure deliveries arrive intact and on time
  7. Attach the correct labels, such as Airmail or customs labels to items going abroad
  8. Check your packaging to make sure it’s strong enough and mark fragile items
  9. Do not send prohibited items such as liquids outside of Ireland
  10. Keep your receipt, with the number that allows you to trace trackable items, until you know they have been safely delivered

Always run on WP4.8.2 ! it’s a shame that it is not more developed…

I’m primarily using ACF + ACF Posts 2 Posts now, but before that the plugin was indispensable for me. The documentation is brilliant and functionality is very rich within the main goal.

Indeed a good plugin, good concept. But sad as developer not maintaining the same

I’m working with WordPress, after some updates or actions the plugin starts to work incorrectly. The code is completely unreadable and can not be changed, the author abandoned his creation. You can use — https://wordpress.org/plugins/npc-neatekpostconnect/

This does exactly what you expect. Excellent work.

Plugin hasn’t been updated for a long time but still works perfectly as it says

Заключение

Основные плюсы, которые подтолкнули нас к использованию Postman в своём проекте:

  • Наглядность – все запросы всегда под рукой, мануальное тестирование во время разработки становится легче
  • Быстрый старт – вовлечение нового игрока в команду, будь то программист или тестировщик, проходит легко и быстро
  • Тесты – возможность писать тесты для запросов, а потом быстро составлять из них, как из пазлов, различные варианты и пути жизни приложения
  • Поддержка CI — возможность интегрировать тесты в CI с помощью newman (об этом будет отдельная статья)

Среди минусов можно выделить:

  • Редактирование коллекции привязано к Postman, т. е. для изменений потребуется сделать импорт, отредактировать, а затем сделать экспорт в репозиторий проекта
  • Так как коллекция лежит в одном большом json файле, Review изменений практически невозможно

У каждого проекта свои подходы и взгляды на тестирование и разработку. Мы увидели для себя больше плюсов, чем минусов, и поэтому решили использовать этот мощный инструмент, как для тестирования, так и для описания запросов к API нашего проекта. И по своему опыту можем сказать, даже, если вы не будете использовать средства тестирования, которые предоставляет Postman, то иметь описание запросов в виде коллекции будет весьма полезно. Коллекции Postman это живая, интерактивная документация к вашему API, которая сэкономит множество времени, и в разы ускорит разработку, отладку и тестирование!

P.S.: Основной функционал Postman бесплатен и удовлетворяет ежедневным нуждам, но есть некоторые инструменты с рядом ограничений в бесплатной версии:

  • Postman API – позволяет получать доступ к данным вашего аккаунта, добавлять, удалять и обновлять коллекции, запросы, и другую информацию программно, напрямую через API. Вы можете обратиться к нему 1000 раз в месяц.
  • Mock сервер – позволяет развернуть заглушки для вашего API на серверах разработчиков Postman. Доступно 1000 запросов в месяц.
  • Api Monitoring – позволяет создавать коллекции для мониторинга и запуска их по расписанию с серверов разработчика Postman. Система мониторинга сделает для вас не больше 1000 запросов в месяц
  • Api Documentation – позволяет публиковать автоматически сгенерированную документацию на серверах приложения Postman. Ограничение 1000 просмотров в месяц
