If you are currently hosting a WordPress website with HostPapa – move hosts. Now. I’m not joking. Their lack of help and piss-poor support makes them a nightmare to work with.

Add Default Text for WordPress Pages and Posts

Categories: Blog, Development, WordPress
Tags: , , , ,

Making the WordPress ‘default_content’ hook work in your favor by easily adding default text to new pages, new posts or both. The code for this is slightly adapted from other ‘default text’ code I’ve seen online because it allows you to distinguish between whether you’re adding a new page or a new post.

Prevent ‘Subscribers’ from viewing any portion of your WordPress administration area. The code can be adapted to fit your needs – block out any WordPress user based on level from various parts of the admin section. Very handy if you’re working with user registration at your blog.

I picked up a Ansco Rediflex from the St. Agnes church rummage the other day for 50 cents. I figured that the low cost of the camera would make it a good trial for diving into cleaning and fixing up cameras. If worse comes to worse the camera will make a good start to my camera collection. Check out the before and after shots within the post.

Camping – Instagrams

I had the chance to really put the Instagram (iPod Touch/iPhone) app to the test this weekend on a camping trip. I have to save that if I didn’t love this app before, I do now. The filters are great and being able to import photos from other applications is a huge win in my book.
