Blogs

A blog is a discussion or informational site consisting of discrete entries ("posts") typically displayed in reverse chronological order. Blogs can be the work of a single individual but more recently "multi-author blogs" (MABs) have developed, with posts written by large numbers of authors and professionally edited and "microblogging" systems help integrate blogs into societal newstreams.

I am writing an eBook for self-publication on Amazon. In it, I reference a somewhat scientific article to support my conclusions if a reader requires such information. I converted the link to a tiny URL, but am afraid that if the web page is ever taken down by the publisher, that the link and thus the info will be lost. With permission from the author/website manager, what is the best way for me to store the article forever? Should I copy and paste it in a Word document, reprint it to my blog with permission........I need help please. (It also has some lovely graphics....how would you handle them?)

Thanks in advance.

I am working on a WordPress site that was created by another developer.  They had a WordPress site for the main website and also a separate WordPress site for blog posts.  I have moved the blog posts over to the main website so we can combine the two sites into one.

The previous developer created a child theme and seems to have broke the ability to display posts on the main site.  The client does not have access to this developer anymore. The only thing that appears from the posts is the title (on the list page it is the newest post title) for both the list page and the details page. I added a new post thinking that maybe it was a problem with the data, but a new post does the same thing. Here is the link to the blog posts:

http://www.tmicoatings.com/blog/

I have isolated the files that are involved and identified where in the code is breaking (see below above code).  The child theme was based on the twentythirteen theme.  I have compared the files from the twentythirteen theme in other WordPress installations and cannot find any differences.  I can't determine if this is a code issue or if it as an issue with the database

The files that list the posts are (I am probably stating the obvious here):
index.php
content.php

The files that show the details of the post are:
single.php
content.php

The code seems to be breaking when the index.php and single.php calls the content.php.

index.php code:
<?php
/**

Please bear with me, I'm new to Joomla.

How do I have a person directed to a particular page based on their homepage login.  

For example:  UserA -- login and lands on page1.htm  (no access to other pages)
                          UserB -- login and lands on page2. htm (no accesss to other pages)
                         UserC -- login and lands on page3. htm (no accesss to other pages)

I hope that makes sense.

Thanks.

I am wanting to update a blog and then have a few more blogs with the same add-ons.  I was speaking with one person - he was doing it for free to show me what he can do because I am looking for a partner in an adventure.  But I have not heard from him.

Some of the people say the add-ons are the most difficult part.  I did a search and I got the top 25, 170+, 180+. Right now I have
Twitter Account
Short URL
Facebook Page
Looking at a Google Page
Had a Ning account but they claimed I purchased the most expressive and I proved I didn't but they would not help

Honestly, I do not know that much about Tweeting a post. I know I would like to be able to tweet the post when I publish it, for example, Don't Pay for an Electronic Payment Gateway - http://mmab.cc/6 

Now what is say user JohnDoe wants to Tweet it - does it go under his Twitter account, or the blog's?

And for SEO purposes: http://www.example.com/2014/08/dont-pay-for-an-electronic-payment-gateway or http://electronic-payment-gateways.example.com/2014/08/dont-pay-for-an-electronic-payment-gateway - where the sub-domain (Electronic Payment Gateways) is the category - does it matter?

Thank you!
Corey

I want to create a wordpress autoblog using the WPeMatico plugin. However, I heard this only works with RSS feeds.

What if the site I want to generate the autoblogs from doesn't have an RSS feed?

Is there another plugin?

Or can I consult with the site owner in effort to convince him to get an RSS Feed so that I can generate traffic to his site from my autoblog?

thx

I wanted to embed a clock into my AUS project page in my Microsoft OneNote program.  I tried both custom link types and they failed to load. (links for bloggers)

Right now I just have hyper-text to
http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/australia/adelaide

Since we are in the USA I thought it would be nice if people reviewing the notes could see the current time at our remote office.

Any ideas how to get a clock to display in OneNote.  I only see I can embed my current "local" time in the inset menu.

We currently have our domain hosted with Network Solutions and our Web Hosting with Fat Cow.  A new website was recently created using WordPress so we have an A Record setup with Fat Cow that redirects the user to the WordPress hosted website.  Then we have our email being run by Google Apps for Non-Profits which we have an MX Record setup with Fat Cow to redirect to Google.  The problem we are having is that the DNS information keeps being reset and it wipes out our MX and A Records.  I'm wondering if there is a better way to do this so that we don't have this problem?

Thank you in advance for any help.

After designing and developing with WordPress on a mac for years, I've made the switch to a PC. On the mac I used MAMP, and now I'm using XAMP. I would like to use something other than XAMP, perhaps something native to Windows 7. What are my options?

I've been outsourcing for a while now and find the traditional job posting boards a bit challenging.  One of the difficulties is that when I need help, I often need it now and don't have the desire to keep coming back at it to meet all the conditions of the job board.

So today, the thought occurred to me that perhaps the best way to approach this is not by way of a a job board, but rather by chat. Like raising my hand as if to say "Is there anyone with wordpress background available to help right now"?

Assistance in finding such a chat room that isn't full of spam is greatly appreciated.

We're running MySQL version 5.1.73.

We're having a recurring issue where our database server is being overloaded. Currently, we're monitoring about 1.18 MB/s of incoming traffic, with 200 queries per second on a server supporting roughly 25 WordPress-based sites. In the attached log file, we've noticed lines including things like:

3 Query&#9;SELECT ID, post_name, post_parent, post_type
&#9;&#9;FROM wp_posts
&#9;&#9;WHERE post_name IN ('buy-cialis-jellya-online')
&#9;&#9;AND post_type IN ('page','attachment')
&#9;&#9;    3 Query&#9;SELECT wp_term_taxonomy.term_id
&#9;&#9;&#9;&#9;&#9;FROM wp_term_taxonomy
&#9;&#9;&#9;&#9;&#9;INNER JOIN wp_terms USING (term_id)
&#9;&#9;&#9;&#9;&#9;WHERE taxonomy = 'category'
&#9;&#9;&#9;&#9;&#9;AND wp_terms.slug IN ('buy-cialis-jellya-online')

Any help figuring out what this means and if it's correlated, we would appreciate it.

I need to allow users to post from a link in the top nav bar of this Wordpress site http://frugalmule.com/category/blog/.

Ideally posting would require approval but once approved, would give them an anonymous identifier of some sort.  The first step though, is just giving them the ability to post here http://frugalmule.com/category/blog/.

All suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I am using Response.TransmitFile to enable download feature on my web site and the file size is 2GB. It was working fine till last month. But now customers are complaining that the file downloaded from the size is corrupt. We tried on multiple browser and found the checksum is not matching. When we manually copy the files, checksum is matching. Files at source are not corrupt and is verified. Below is the code snippet used. Could this checksum mismatch is induced by web server? The file downloaded ends up being slightly more in file size compared to file in source. Please help.

            UserInfo objUserInfo = (UserInfo)Session["USER_INFO"];
            string strDocname = ((LinkButton)sender).CommandArgument.ToString();
            strDocname = strDocname.Replace("\r\n", "");
            strSource = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["DOWNLOAD_PATH"].ToString() + Path.GetFileName(strDocname);
            new Log().logInfo("GotoSystem_onCommand", strSource);
            FileInfo file = new FileInfo(strDocname);
            Response.Clear();
            Response.ClearContent();
            Response.ClearHeaders();
            Response.ContentType = "application/octet-stream";
            Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + strDocname + "");
            Response.TransmitFile(strSource);
            UpdateDownloadLog(objUserInfo.GetUserAcctId(), strDocname, Session["BRAND"].ToString());

Hi!

I'm trying to decide between a Managed VPS or a WordPress Specific Hosting service, specifically WiredTree Managed VPS or Synthesis "Professional" - which is also a managed VPS from what I can tell.

We are taking over a WordPress blog that gets about 100,000 unique visitors a month, and we're hoping to grow that number.

I have a limited tech background, that is super out of date at this point, and I'm hoping to mostly focus on content, so I thought the added support of a WordPress specific host might be worthwhile, but I also don't want to shoot myself in the foot with limited server side access, so I thought I would come here and ask people with more experience if that lack of flexibility will an issue.

Any advice would be helpful!
Thanks,
Joline

I am looking for a Wordpress Plugin that will let a user register a product (or multiple products) then after submission, a unique QR code for each of these products is generated. That QR code could be scanned which would take them to a pre-defind webpage with the product information etc.

Is there anything like this?

I have a business called Leucadia House.  The webpage URL is Leucadiahouse.com.  When one does a Google search on Leucadiahouse, my web page is visible on the first page of the matches. Very good.

But, Leucadia House (note word spacing) doesn't show up in a Google search.  In the web page and blog I just started, the Leucadia House term is used regularly but Google sees Leucadia or House and gives, for my purposes, a much poorer result.

Is there a technique that will result in Leucadiahouse and Leucadia House looking similar to the Googlebot?
