Everyone Is Blogging Today!
It seems like everyone is a blogger today, and everyone has their preference as to which is the best software to use.
In this category, I share with you some of the basics, software other Content management systems that you may or may not know about.
The fun part about blogging is, you get to share your opinion with the rest of the world. Even if no one can find your blog, one day they will.
Do you really need A WebSite? If you plan to market both online and offline the answer to that question is an emphatic yes. The next question is should you use someone else’s system or your own? I believe this is where most people run into trouble. Using someone else’s [...]
Ninety-nine percent of the time installing a security update for Drupal 6 is a painless process, it just works. Not this time. At this point in time I have to say installing Ctools 6.x-1.4 and Panels 6.x-3.4 will break your site and evidently the maintainers do not care at all. [...]
At the beginning of this month I wrote a post about Fusion or AdaptiveTheme and the Drupal 6 theme AT Koda. What I liked about the original design done by Kodamera and ported to Drupal by Adaptivethemes was the clean lines. In many ways it looked a lot like one [...]
Sometimes I think I know just enough about Drupal to be dangerous. In the next few weeks I’ll be posting a review on Drupal 6 Attachement Views by J. Ayen Green via PACKT publishing. I’ve played with the views module and I know I’ve just scratched the surface yet I [...]
For the past month I’ve been looking at both of the Drupal Starter themes Fusion and Adaptivetheme. And, I should say I still have more questions than answers. I’ve been doing my research carefully as I want to move one of my websites, over 500+pages to Drupal. What I originally [...]
Why does anyone blog? Usually, it is because we have something to say and we want to share it with the world. Everyone would love to have their content syndicated, right?
Today many blog websites content is being syndicated. But not in the way they would like for it to happen. We write simply because we want people to visit our sites.
So what happens when low-life degenerate decides to scrap your content, without providing at the least a back link to the original post?
Ok so you know how when you get in a rush, and you install a Drupal Module update assuming everything will be ok.
If we only lived in a perfect world right.
The other day I updated the latest Drupal 6.x Mollom module release 1.11 on three different sites.
It was running late so I really didn’t check my work and ensure that everything was as it should be…
With most module updates if something is not working it’s not that serious and neither was this update, unless…
…You love getting comment spam.
Over the past two days I spent quite a few hours trying to figure out why the update for Backup and Migrate 2.2 would not save to the scheduled folder.
Since I had two sites and it was only occurring on one of them I knew it was not the module itself but more likely a permissions issue. This is where I spent most of my time, verifying the various folders permissions, ownership etc…
The Drupal module Backup and Migrate places an htaccess file in each of the folders, manual and scheduled, with:
deny from all
Wow talk about a night mare, the newly releashed up date for the drupal 6 nodewords 1.7 update is creating havoc with many individuals.
And, yes I was one of them. At first I thought I was screwed because I did not do a backup immediately prior to updating the module.
As I set down to go through each page and post it suddenly dawned on me, dummy you’ve got the module Backup and Migrate installed.
Now it was just a matter of uploading nodewords 1.5 and then restoring the latest backup. Talk about dodging a bullet!
I found it kind of Ironic that Technorati has stopped accepting pings to let them know about updates.
Yet, can you really blame them with the influx of blogs and many who use blogs for spam etc…
It was bound to happen, so now you have to create a post and upload it with the code embedded into the post so you can claim your blog.
This is nothing new, Google, Yahoo and others have been doing this for years so they can verify the true site owner. I often find my blog posts especially on this site hijacked by scrapers.
