I have had a problem with a personal WordPress blog I installed a long time ago but never got the chance to look into until recently which is the fact that the logon part of the site was not auto logging me on. Not only was the blog not auto logging me on but it was not remembering my password though it would remember my username. This blog has been around since before WordPress 2.5 and I have upgraded from time to time. I remember the issue started somewhere around the time that I upgraded from WordPress 2.5 to WordPress 2.6 so that is where I started the troubleshooting process and sure enough I was able to find the answer pretty easily. I had been in a rush when upgrading the site and once I had time to go back and read the documentation I found some configuration file options located in wp-config.php that had been added with WordPress 2.6. There were 3 security key configuration options added in WordPress 2.6 and fourth security key added in WordPress 2.7.
You can easily transfer files from a server that has SSH (Secure Shell) running but not FTP (File Transfer Protocol) using Filezilla on Windows. When using Filezilla it will be called SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) and will allow you to copy files from a server to your local Windows computer with ease. Follow the simple steps below to securely copy files from a server that is running SSH.
- Open Filezilla: First you will need to launch Filezilla. If you do not have Filezilla you can obtain it for free from this link.
- Open Site Manager: Click on File in the top navigation menu and then select “Site Manager” from the drop down. This will open Filezilla’s Site Manager, as shown below, where you can add, delete, and modify sites that you visit often.
Customizing the buttons located in the top left corner of your Internet Explorer browser window is easy though it might not be obvious to everyone. Below are details on how to add or remove various Microsoft IE toolbar buttons such as the Home Button, the Page Drop Down, the Safety Drop Down, the Tools Drop Down, the Feeds Button, the Bonjour Button, the Print Button/Drop Down, the Read Mail Button, and the Help Button just to name a few. A lot of third party applications that you install will add buttons to the Internet Explorer Toolbar which will eventually clutter up the toolbar which also includes your IE tabs. Below are the simple steps to add, modify, or remove these toolbar buttons and drop downs.

This is typically located near the top right of the browser underneath the search box in IE (located on the right side of the address bar by default) and then below the Google Toolbar if you have that installed.
Setting up log rotation for multiple Ruby on Rails projects on the same Linux server is easy using logrotate. If all of your projects are in the same directory structure it is even easier by using variables to work for each different project as explained below in detail.
First you will need to install logrotate which can be installed on CentOS Linux via yum as shown in the below command.
- yum install logrotate
Recently I was setting up a WordPress blog and needed to use the default pages widget to list a certain set amount of pages. On this blog I used the NextGEN Gallery for dozens of different galleries. The issue was that I wanted to only list a couple of pages using the default Pages widget and when using NGG I would have dozens if not hundreds of pages that I would need to exclude with the default Pages widget. So what I needed to do was include a couple of page ID’s instead of excluding hundreds of page ID’s.
The problem above can be accomplished by making one minor adjustment to one WordPress file. We will need to modify the wp_pages_widget PHP function to include the pages specified in the admin versus excluding them.
File to Modify: <wp-root-directory>/wp-includes/widgets.php
