Force HTTPS But Not For Add-On Domain

Posted

Setting up a new add-on domain* for a client today and found that I could not access the new add-on domain name directly. It was appending the new add-on domain name to the root or main site url. So instead of taking the visitor to www.newdomain.com it was taking them to www.maindomain.com/newdomain.com, and of course […]

Fix Dreamweaver Double-Spaced Code

Posted

Due to Unix/Linux/Windows server environments, when you are editing code locally in Dreamweaver you’ll sometimes find your code double-spaced for the whole file. A quick fix is to run this find/replace command to remove the extra spaces. Hit CTRL-F or command F to bring up the Find/Replace dialog box. In the Find box enter “[\r\n]{2,}” […]

InMotion Hosting: Fix Image Upload Error for WordPress

Posted

This may be pertinent for WordPress installs on InMotion web hosting only. I ran into an image upload error for a new WordPress install where the only message displayed was “HTTP error”. After following the usual actions of checking folder permissions, php memory limits, etc. the solution that worked for me was found in this […]

You can fix this by doing a find/replace right in Dreamweaver. With the page open, hit CTRL-F and enter \n\s*\n and type Ctrl-Enter in the replace box, making sure the “Use […]

Facebook Page: Not Eligible To Create A Username Solution

Posted

This one is going out to all those searching the Facebook help pages that really offer no help. I couldn’t believe just how little help those pages and their comments/information were… especially with no Facebook representatives helping anyone! Anyways… I recently set up a new business page for a client, from a new Facebook account […]

The CSS Pseudo-Element :empty and Google Maps

Posted

I use Feedly.com as my RSS reader and have a good amount of content coming in there that I browse each day or so. I certainly don’t remember each and everything I read, but even skimming the content and articles means that one day when I run into a work problem, I might remember “Oh […]

Foundation 6: Force Remote Font Loading For Google Fonts

Posted

Loving how my latest Foundation 6 website was proceeding in development, I realized the website was loading a system font (in my case Roboto) when viewing the site on my local computer. I’m using Foundation 6 (Sass) with WordPress 4.5 using the JointsWP theme developed locally in Wamp. Around line 63 in the file _global.scss […]

Balloon.css – Simple tooltips made from pure CSS

Posted

I haven’t used this myself yet but was happy to see it on offer. Truthfully I’m selfishly blogging about it here so I can come back when it’s needed. If you want to create tooltips (the popups that appear when hovering over with your mouse—see above graphic) Balloon.css looks to be pretty simple. You can […]

PHP Snippet: Display If In Date Range

Posted

One of my client’s websites requires regular updates where a “Sale” graphic is shown to visitors between certain dates. Rather than manually updating the site at those specific dates (and having to be in front of the computer on those dates) I wrote a little script so the graphic just pops up if the current […]

Emails Slow? Check Your Greylisting Settings

Posted

  This might not pertain to your situation. In fact I knew nothing about Greylisting, or if applied to me, until I went digging into the server settings via my cpanel. What was happening to me was I testing a contact form script that I had written from the ground up. It was including some […]

750 FREE + 96 NEW Material Design Icons to Use, Remix or Share

Posted

In October of 2014 I blogged about Google releasing 700+ free categorized icons. Well they’ve just updated their collection with an additional 96 new icons that you can use personally or commercially without attribution whatsoever. Their license (CC-BY 4.0) does however include a blurb saying it won’t hurt their feelings if you include attribution on […]

Photoshop: Quit Adding “Copy” To My Exported JPGs

Posted

I was recently creating an action in Photoshop that would alter my original JPGs and then at determined steps throughout the altering process save a JPG to certain folders on my hard drive; kind of a “save large version JPG, alter further, save medium version, alter further and save thumbnail version”. Pretty easy stuff—I create […]

FREE Open Source Password Manager: KeePass

Posted

Unless I’m mistaken and you don’t use the Internet much at all, YOU NEED a password manager. Here’s the gist. KeePass is free, open-source, cross-platform, light-weight password management program for Windows. If you aren’t using Windows but rather have a Mac, iPhone or Android OS unofficial versions of the program exist for pretty much any […]

SVG PORN

Posted

Oh yeah baby! I’m loving those colours and curves. I love your composition, balance and negative space. That’s right. SVG PORN. Looking so hot on my Galaxy’s 2560 x 1600 Pixel 10.5″ WQXGA Super AMOLED display. Really hot. I have to share. SVGPORN.com has it going on. Vector logos that are rock’in SVG. Check them […]

Client Data Workflow

Posted

Just wanted to share what I thought was a reasonably valuable tidbit today. It’s about organizing client data. I’ve done this long enough now to know there has to be some sort of logic as to where you save something or what you name it. I’ve never really found anyone else talking about this so […]

CSS Fixed Background Effect From CodyHouse

Posted

I follow digital trends somewhat closely, as well as the debates that surround those trends. This post though isn’t about a trend or a debate so much, but rather just something put out there that you may choose to use or inspire you. I look at it a little like a CSS only parallax-effect hack. […]

CSS Feature Detection Using @supports In Your CSS

Posted

You have used CSS for years, targeting elements in your code and styling as you wish. Perhaps you’ve even developed code that checked to see if your styling would look great in all browsers and implemented a fall-back in case your preferred styling wasn’t supported in the viewer’s browser. You might have used Modernizr for that […]

Using a Middot For List Style Type

Posted

I have always “not loved” the giant circle that appears by default for a list style type of “disc”. If you’d like to use a middot instead, which stands for middle-dot, change your CSS as follows:

The above will work on any browser supporting the :before and :content psuedo-elements. Read more about psuedo-elements at […]
