04. AdSense optimization tips for forums - Mar 19, 2011 6:07:00 PM

1. Format is important for multiple ad unitsPlacing a skyscraper above the fold on the left side of your forum seems to produce slightly better performance than other positioning. However, when using multiple ad units throughout the page our horizontal bias still favors the leaderboard. See the Forum Heat Map below for more details.
2. Display your ad units where repeat users will notice themA leaderboard at the very top fits nicely next to the logo, but forum regulars tend to skip the header and go straight to the meat of the thread. Placing your ad unit above or below the first post can be more effective.
3. Place a leaderboard immediately after the last postThis provides users who make it to the end of a thread with a ‘next step’ when the content ends. If you place it after the footer, though, folks will move to the next thread before they even see the ad!
4. Use horizontal link unitsLink units offer a wider range of relevant topics for users to browse. A horizontal unit can be placed near the top of your forum just below the header.
5. Opt-in to image ads Supporting image ads increases the pool of ads –particularly cost-per-thousand-impression (CPM) ads – bidding to display on your site. Since forums tend to have lower click-through rates (CTRs) than other types of sites, CPM ads can improve revenue without the need for clicks. Please remember, however, that CPM ads come in both text and image formats.
6. Be sensitive to your forum communityForums are highly interactive, so be sensitive to your users when implementing your AdSense ads. Be sure to blend the ads nicely, so they don’t appear overly intrusive – but don’t blend them so well they mislead your users! Every forum site is different and you know your community best, so as always use your own judgment to create the most positive experience for your users.

06. Economia României, mai libera decât cea a Frantei - Jan 24, 2011 12:06:00 PM
analiza-economica

Economia României este libera în proportie de 64,7, ceea ce o plaseaza pe locul 63 din 183 de state în clasamentul celor mai libere economii din lume, potrivit concluziilor unui raport dat publicitatii miercuri de Heritage Foundation, o reputata organizatie de analiza economica din Washington, citata de Agerpres.

Potrivit Index of Economic Freedom pe 2011, scorul României s-a îmbunatatit cu 0,5 comparativ cu editia precedenta. Desi este depasita de tari precum Bulgaria, locul 60, Ungaria, locul 51, Slovacia, locul 37, si Cehia, locul 28, România se situeaza totusi în fata Frantei, locul 64, Slovenia, locul 66, Turcia, locul 67, Polonia, locul 68, si Portugalia, locul 69. Astfel, România se claseaza pe locul 27 din cele 43 de state din regiunea Europei, iar scorul sau total este mai mare decât media globala.

Si în acest an Hong Kong se situeaza pe prima pozitie, pentru al 17-lea an consecutiv, cu un scor de 89,7, mult peste media globala de 59,7. Urmeaza în ordine, Singapore, Australia, Noua Zeelanda, Elvetia, Canada, Irlanda, Danemarca, SUA si Bahrein. Pe ultimele locuri ale clasamentului se situeaza Coreea de Nord, locul 179, cu un scor de 1,0, în timp ce Afganistanul, Irakul, Liechtenstein si Sudanul nu au primit un calificativ.

La elaborarea acestui clasament, Heritage Foundation a luat în calcul o lista de 10 criterii precum interventia statului în economie, dreptul de proprietate, politica fiscala, gradul de coruptie, libertatea muncii.


07. Oboseala cronica acuta - Jan 20, 2011 9:11:00 AM
Oboseala cronicaSindromul de oboseala cronica are cauze diverse si este diagnosticat in functie de cel putin 4 simptome dintre cele catalogate de medici (oboseala extrema, dificultati de concentrare, pierderi de memorie, dureri musculare, articulare si cefalee, ganglioni usor mariti, somn neodihnitor). Oboseala cronica poate fi stabilita doar de medic, dupa un control amanuntit, mai ales ca boala are manifestari specifice de la un pacient la altul. Dupa un tratament personalizat, stabilit de medicul curant, este important ca sa se aplice ulterior un tratament de intretinere, pentru atenuarea efectelor oboselii cronice.
Tonus slabUn tonus slab (hipotonie) la nivelul musculaturii este o manifestare a diferitelor boli si tulburari ale nervului motor din creier care controleaza forta musculara. Tonusul slab se recunoaste usor inca din copilarie, dar diagnosticarea poate fi adesea dificila. Efectele pe termen lung se concretizeaza in slabiciune musculara. Tratamentul, in cele mai multe dintre cazuri, se face prin terapie fizica sau ocupationala, sub recomandarea medicului. O persoana cu tonus slab are nevoie de supraveghere adecvata si solutii de tratament pe termen lung.
Imbatranirea pieliiColagenul si elastina sunt cele doua componente importante care se gasesc in structura dermei si care duc la imbatranirea pielii odata cu trecerea anilor. Oxidarea poate provoca pete de imbatranire a pielii. Totodata, razele ultraviolete imbatranesc derma, iar alte cauze pot fi: alimentatie deficitara, deshidratare, factori ereditari, poluarea, umiditatea scazuta, modul in care va ingrijiti pielea zilnic si chiar stresul de zi cu zi. Exista remedii la indemana pentru a reda pielii din elasticitate si pentru a preintampina imbatranirea. Consultarea unui specialist permite gasirea unui tratament personalizat, in functie de tipul de piele.
Miros neplacutMirosul neplacut al corpului poate fi o consecinta a igienei deficitarea, dar si a unor boli digestive, afectiuni ale ficatului, diabet sau infectii. Mirosul neplacut se mai poate manifesta din cauza unei intense activitati bacteriale a glandelor sudoripare sau a unui deficit de minerale. Exista persoana care prezinta miros neplacut din cauza unui dezechilibru care afecteaza bacteriile din sistemul digestiv. In functie de cauzele depistate si partile organismului unde apare mirosul, tratamentele pot fi diverse. Consultul la un medic specialist este necesar, mai ales cand mirosul neplacut va afecteaza viata sociala.
Dureri musculareDurerile musculare sunt frecvente si implica adesea si disconfort la nivelul ligamentelor, al oaselor, tendoanelor sau chiar la nivelul organelor interne. Cauzele unor dureri musculare pot fi diverse, de la suprasolicitare fizica a zonei dureroase pana la boli precum lupus sau fibromialgia (inflamarea muschilor). Durerile musculare pot aparea si ca efect secundar al unor medicamente. In conditiile in care durerile musculare persista, chiar daca s-a evitat efortul, un control medical este necesar. Organismul reactioneaza divers, iar asemenea dureri pot ascunde boli grave.
BalonareBalonarea este cauzata de o anumita afectiune sau este o consecinta a unui stil alimentar dezordonat. Daca senzatia de balonare este repetitiva, in ciuda regimului alimentar optim, este important sa va adresezi unui medic specialist pentru a depista daca exista probleme digestive si cum pot fi tratate. Balonarea se manifesta prin gaze in exces in tubul digestiv, in special in stomac si intestine. In cazuri de balonare persistenta, este recomandata o detoxifiere de 2-3 ori pe an, necesitate prezenta in special dupa varsta de 35 de ani, cand problemele digestive devin mai frecvente.
Diminuarea memorieiDiminuarea memoriei poate fi un efect al diverselor boli cardiovasculare - reducerea aportului de sange la creier, boli degenerative (Parkinson, Alzheimer) sau aspecte emotionale care duc la spasme ale vaselor de sange cerebrale si scaderea irigarii cu sange a creierului. O alta cauza de diminuarea memoriei este deficienta de vitaminele B6 si B1. Mai mult, deficitul de magneziu poate conduce la slabirea memoriei. Medicul va poate prescrie, in acest caz, o cura cu vitamine apartinand grupului B, iar ameliorarile vor fi vizibile. Stresul cauzat de zgomote excesive este un alt element care sta la baza diminuarii memoriei.

08. Portretul robot al unui parior de succes - Jan 17, 2011 4:05:00 PM
Portretul robot al unui parior de succes la pariuri sportive :1. Se specializeaza pe un anumit sport sau cel mult 2.2. Se specializeaza pe un anumit campionat sau cel mult 3 (sau asupra unui numar de echipe pe care le urmareste constant).3. Are conturi la mai multe agentii si cauta cea mai buna cota pentru ce vrea el sa parieze.4. Isi propune un obiectiv, un punct terminus dupa care isi retrage o parte din castig, isi propune urmatorul obiectiv s.a.m.d. deoarece stie ca banii care apar in dreapta sus sub username sunt ai lui doar cand ii are in mana.5. Studiaza meciurile, se informeaza din cat mai multe surse, obligatoriu diferite dar nu se lasa influentat de nimeni.6. Nu preia biletul zilei facut de altcineva pentru el.6. Are rabdare sa-i apara ceva in catare chiar daca nu pariaza o perioada lunga de timp.7. Nu pariaza pe tampenii care nu pot fi prezise nici de cei care participa direct la respectivul eveniment.8. Intodeauna isi apreciaza sansele inainte si pariaza in consecinta. Stie ca nu exista eveniment 100% sigur.9. Nu pariaza pe favoriti decat ocazional deoarece stie ca rareori va primi un pret corect. Deci nu include in biletul zilei personal meciuri cu favoriti.10. Nu pariaza decat pe meciuri cu miza deoarece stie ca meciurile fara miza sunt o loterie.11. Nu se sperie de cotele mari puse de bookies. Pentru el cotele sunt doar niste coeficienti cu care isi inmulteste miza sa calculeze posibilul castig.12. Pariaza dupa ca are la indemana si informatii de ultima ora si pariaza numai dupa ce este convins ca nici una din datele problemei nu se poate schimba.13. In nici un caz nu neglijeaza feeling-ul.Nu pariaza daca simte cea mai mica indoiala deoarece experienta acumulata ii permite ‘sa simta’ pericolul, dar nici nu pariaza numai ‘cu sufletul’ mai ales cand sunt implicate echipele preferate.14. Are puterea sa nu se arunce in prapastie o data cu ‘turma’ si se mai gandeste odata inainte de a paria.15. Nu pariaza castigul proaspat obtinut gandindu-se ca oricum nu sunt banii lui.16. Nu pariaza mai mult imediat dupa un mare esec deoarece stie ca poate intra intr-o spirala spre dezastru. Este de principiul ?supravietuieste astazi ca sa poti lupta maine?17. Inainte de a paria se gandeste cum se va simti fara miza pe care are de gand s-o parieze si daca se va simti bine pariaza daca ii vine cu lesin scade miza.18. Foloseste un sistem de moneymanagement potrivit buzunarului lui.19. Se hotaraste care sunt cotele “corecte” pentru acel meci si apoi alege cota care ofera valoare, sau, daca nu o gaseste, spune “pas”.20. Nu pariaza niciodata presat de timp, aloca timp suficient studiului si pariurilor deoarece poate considera pariul un al doilea job, pe care il face din placere.21. Biletul zilei este pregatit cu cel putin 2-3 zile inainte pentru a-si asigura timp de documentare si a-si maximiza sansele de castig combinat.
09. Pensiunea Arena ****- Cazare cluj - Jan 12, 2011 11:56:00 AM

Pensiunea Arena este situata în Cluj-Napoca, într-o zona centrala, dar, în acelasi timp, ferita de traficul intens al orasului, si în proximitatea Parcului Central. Aceste lucruri o fac locul ideal atât pentru servicii de cazare cluj cât si pentru cele de restaurant.

Fara a avea pretentia de produs exclusivist, pensiunea Arena ofera un lux accesibil, un mediu functional într-un decor impecabil, clasic si modern totodata. Un lux înteles în alt fel decât pâna acum, mai accesibil, mai firesc. Clientul nostru nu plateste în plus pentru conditiile impecabile, deoarece acestea reprezinta un cadru de la sine înteles.

Arena reprezinta o reinterpretare moderna a clasicului si a elementelor antice grecesti, care îsi regasesc expresivitatea într-o forma adesea futurista. Totusi, efectul nu este deloc cel de muzeu, ci, mai degraba, de spatiu ultramodern, în care un ochi atent identifica urme ale trecutului, acest edificiu fiind atestat in anul 1900 si renovat în 2010.

Un spatiu creat cu inteligenta, prin valorificarea oricarui element de decor. Pe scurt, un refugiu, un loc intim în care clientul poate evada, paradoxal, chiar în mijlocul orasului, un loc care se poate reinterpreta în functie de nevoie: relaxare sau, din contra, atmosfera de office.

11. Online Branding Monitor - Jan 8, 2011 6:41:00 PM
Venim in intampinarea dumneavoastra cu un serviciu UNIC in Romania!

Cu totii suntem constienti de ceea ce inseamna Google, in desfasurarea afacerilor noastre. Cu totii ne dorim ca motorul de cautare Google, sa ne placa si sa ne plaseze pe primele pozitii de cautare organica pe cuvintele alese de noi. Aceasta situatie poate duce la dublarea, triplarea sau chiar insutirea cifrei de afaceri. Pentru aceasta avem serviciul de pozitionare in Google.

Ceea ce inseamna Online Branding Monitor este intr-adevar ceva unic. O sa incerc sa va explic ideea si sper sa reusesc sa ma fac bine inteles. Intr-un alt articol vom prezenta ‘le piece de resistance’ numit Online Branding Self Control. Nu cred ca nu v-ati pus niciodata problema ce ar fi daca cineva ar posta pe internet absolut orice despre firma dumneavoastra sau despre dumneavoastra personal.: ca va plac jocurile de noroc, ca aveti amanta, ca furati bani, sau cate si mai cate.

Va fi foarte greu sa opriti sau stopati aceste lucruri , adevarate sau nu . Dar totusi cum ar fi daca pe prima pagina a cautarilor organice de la Google pe numele dumneavoastra sau al brandului dumneavoastra ar aparea numai ce doriti dumneavoastra , adica exact acele informatii pe care le doriti dumneavoastra si pe care le puteti modifica dupa bunul plac?

Pana acum era doar un vis, dar acum exista ONLINE BRANDING SELF CONTROL( il vom detalia intr-un articol separat), unicul serviciu de acest gen din Romania.

Dar acum sa revenim la Online Branding Monitor.

Cred ca in acesta nebunie informationala care este internetul ar fi placut sa stii in fiecare moment ce si unde se scrie despre brandul tau, numele tau si domeniul tau de activitate. Sa afli tot ce se intampla pe net despre ele. E important sa stii in timp real pentru a putea lua pozitie sau a contracara lucrurile neplacute, precum si a profita de lucrurile bune care se scriu la momentul oportun.

Pe scurt, acest serviciu va propune o monitorizare in timp real a tot ceea ce se scrie pe internet despre numele, brandul sau firma dumneavoastra, precum si domeniul de activitate vizat.

Aceasta monitorizare se face in timp real, odata cu indexarea paginii respective de catre motorul de cautare Google, fara de care acest serviciu ar fi imposibil.

Se va genera un email cu linkul siteului respectiv unde apare nominalizarea brandului sau numelui dumneavoastra, pentru a putea citi continutul in timp real.

12. De ce sa cumparati o BANDA de ALERGARE? - Dec 29, 2010 4:18:00 PM

Progresul tehnologiei combinat cu costurile de productie reduse ? toate acestea va spun ca puteti acum sa cumparati o banda de alergare pentru uz la domiciliu cu control gradient, cu programe presetate si o functionare care este extrem de apropiata de benzile de alergare comerciale de calitate pentru mai putin de 1000Euro!

Ceea ce este foarte bine, pentru ca alergatul si urcatul dealurilor reprezinta forme foarte bune de antrenament cardiovascular si ambele sunt eficiente atat in controlul greutatii cat si in reducerea grasimii din corp. O banda buna de alergare poate oferi un nivel de amortizare atat de ridicat incat face ca cei mai exotici pantofi de sport sa dea senzatia unui flip-flop, fara sa trebuiasca sa cauti rutele fara trafic si poluare, dar sigure, mai ales pentru femei in serile de iarna.

Dar benzile de alergare presupun o tehnologie mai complexa decat celelalte tipuri de echipament? (cum ar fi cross trainers (bicicletele), ceea ce inseamna ca trebuie sa te gandesti bine inainte de a te repezi sa cumperi acel produs)

Foarte important cand cumparati o banda de alergare:

Asigurati-va ca banda de alergare se vinde impreuna cu o garantie a service-ului, pentru ca multe marci de import se vand doar cu garantia pieselor (doar nu vreti sa schimbati un nou motor chiar d-voastra, etc). Asigurati-va ca garantia nu se ofera cu intoarcerea la baza (d-voastra platiti transportul), intrebati daca inginerul vine la d-voastra acasa sa faca reparatia.

Este important sa cumparati un produs cu nume de marca cunoscut “high street” pentru care se ofera service adecvat in toata tara. Astfel, daca vanzatorul cu amanuntul dispare, garantia d-voastra este totusi valabila la producator. Acum multi producatori ofera garantii pentru toata viata aparatului pentru motor si o garantie prelungita pentru structura si componente.

* Dimensiuni generale – Verificati daca se incadreaza in locul in care doriti sa-l puneti (langa o sursa de energie) cu destul loc pentru a va urca si coborati de pe aparat. Daca locul este mic, ganditi-va si la benzile de alergare rabatabile.
* Puterea motorului – Ar trebui sa aiba cel putin 2.0 cai putere si sa aiba un bun efort de torsiune (la viteze foarte mici, cureaua nu trebuie sa incetineasca cand pasiti pe ea)
* Amortizarea si stabilitatea benzii – Cum te simti cand alergi pe banda de alergare? O banda buna de alergare ar trebui sa ofere o amortizare excelenta, dar sa nu scuture, sa nu agite, sa nu faca zgomote sau sa vibreze la fiecare pas.
* Cureaua sau banda de rulare – verificati daca banda este destul de lata (se recomanda de la 40cm in sus) si destul de lunga pentru a se adapta stilului d-voastra de alergat fara sa aveti crampe si sa se miste lin pentru punte, chiar si cand mergeti la viteza mica.
* Viteza maxima – Asigurati-va ca este cu cel putin 3Km/ora mai mare decat pasul d-voastra obisnuit de alergat? pentru ca motoarele benzilor de alergare care sunt folosite la viteze maxime pe perioade lungi nu vor rezista prea mult.
* Gradientul maxim (inclinarea) -? Gradiente maxime mai mari, de ex. 12%+ sunt folositoare pentru exercitiile de mers. Mai verificati si cat de repede se schimba gradientul cand apasati butonul!
* Pupitru feedback si usurinta utilizarii – cat de clare si inteligibile sunt informatiile de pe afisaj? Cat de usor este accesul la programe (daca exista)? Daca sunt butoanele destul de vizibile si usor de folosit?
* Programele – multe benzi de alergare ofera antrenamente la intervale anume, curse de alergat in panta sau va dau posibilitatea sa va creati propriul d-voastra program de alergat/ mers. Unele mai afiseaza si controlul ritmului cardiac.
* Zgomotul – cat de zgomotoasa este banda de alergat mai ales la viteze mai mari? Benzile de alergare mai silentioase de obicei au un standard mai ridicat de structura si motor.
* Rabatarea – Se rabateaza banda de alergare pentru a putea fi depozitata?
* Standardul structurii – Structurile sudate sunt mai bune decat structurile prinse cu suruburi (suruburile se pot desprinde sub presiune si greutate mare) iar banda de alergare nu trebuie sa se scuture vizibil cand calcati pe ea (este semnul unei constructii fragile)!

14. WordPress Sidebar Turned Apple-Flashy Using jQuery UI - Dec 14, 2010 12:46:00 PM

Apple have always been Gods in terms of the way they present themselves and their products. I just love the sidebar on the Apple Startpage, and wanted to use the Accordion plugin in jQuery UI to achieve this! As if that’s not enough for me, I want to be able to show and hide it at my pleasure as well. I’m gonna show you how!

Preface

This tutorial assumes that you have a wordpress engine running on a server that you have access to upload files, download files and browse to. If you want to run a local server on your computer with a wordpress installation, there is a tutorial on that here for Windows, and here for OS X.




Files you’ll need.

We need a total of 6 files for this tutorial:

functions.php – This will hold a small line of code registering our sidebar.index.php – We most definately need this file. Any guesses why?jQuery – Here’s version 1.2.6 for you.jQuery UI (accordion) – We only need the Accordion plugin and the UI core, not the whole UI library.sidebar.js – Contains all the jQuery code for the sidebar.style.css – Needed to activate the theme, and contains all CSS.images folder – I’ll give you a list of images to fill this up with a bit later on, in the CSS part. For now, though, we only need 1 image that is in the HTML – the RSS icon! Place it in the folder ‘images’ and let’s get started!

Don’t forget to activeate your WordPress theme (which should be aptly named sidebarTheme) in Dashboard! Right. To the tutorial! We’re going to start off with the HTML and WordPress we’ll need. This will include the strcutre we’ll need, Then we’ll fill it up with the WordPress code that will display posts and register and show our sidebar. It’ll still look icky after this, so we’ll fix it up with some pretty CSS that’ll make it somewhat resemble the apple startpage, and make the sidebar look apple-y too. We do this before the JS so those without JS still see the pretty lookin’ thing. Then, finally, my favourite – the jQuery. We’ll animate it open and closed, and use accordion() and it’s parameters to generate the hover effect.

Step 1 – HTML

Quickly open up functions.php, and put this in:

view plaincopy to clipboardprint?
if(function_exists('register_sidebar')){ register_sidebar(array('name' => 'appleQuery')); } ?> 'appleQuery')); } ?>

functions.php is automatically picked up by PHP/Wordpress and executes the functions. This function asks WordPress to register a new sidebar in the Dashboard to add widgets to it. That’s not all though… We need to put that into our theme! I’ll explain that after the HTML/Wordpress bit next. The array just names the sidebar, so that in Dashboard we can select which sidebar to edit (not really a problem… More of a good habit incase of numerous sidebars).

Copy or type this into your index.html:

view plaincopy to clipboardprint?"-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> "http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> "http://gmpg.org/xfn/11">


"stylesheet" href="" type="text/css" media="screen" /> "alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS 2.0" href="" />


"text/javascript" src="/jquery-1.2.6.min.js">
"text/javascript" src="/jquery-accordion-1.5.2.min.js">
"text/javascript" src="/sidebar.js">


"wrapper"> 'name'); ?> "sidebar"> if(function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') && dynamic_sidebar()) : ?> endif; ?>

"content"> "topStories"> "sidebarToggleButton" class="sidebarOpen"> Top Stories echo date('F j, Y H:i A e'); ?> "" title="RSS 2 feed">"/images/rssIcon.gif" alt="" />
if(have_posts()) : ?>while(have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> class="post"> class="postDate">'F j, Y'); ?> "" title=""> class="entry"> '(read more...)'); ?>

endwhile; ?> endif; ?>



" type="text/css" media="screen" /> " /> /jquery-1.2.6.min.js"> /jquery-accordion-1.5.2.min.js"> /sidebar.js"> Top Stories " title="RSS 2 feed">/images/rssIcon.gif" alt="" /> " title=""> Explanation

Ok… I know that’s a lot. A lot a lot. But this tutorial doesn’t specifically focus on WordPress and HTML, but I’ll pick out the interestings that you should probably understand.

The whole sidebar segment – This is the main part of what’s important. What we’re asking wordpress, is that if, in the entire local wordpress engine, the function dynamic_sidebar is present (which it is in functions.php), execute the function. The appleQuery specifies the name of the sidebar that we assigned it (in functions.php, remember?). – This is some raw PHP to echo the current date and time of the user. It’s only in here because it’s on Apple! It’s in the format of: (Month DD, YYYY 00:00 AM GMT). – Look in the head element… Do you see the same thing? Once again, it’s on Apple’s website. It’s just the XML entries feed for the blog. – Nothing amazing… This is just the button that’ll toggle the visibility of the sidebar. I’ve made it a span so it’s not clickable for JSless browsers, but using the .click() function of jQuery people WITH JS can!

So with the HTML and WordPress all up, I’d suggest going into your WP Admin, and adding a few widgets to your blog. For some reason, Search doesn’t have a title, and the tag cloud widget doesn’t disappear – Go figure! I used the following in mine:

CategoriesArchivesLinksPagesMeta

And it should look something like this:

thumbnail

Kinda ugly huh? Never fear, CSS is here!

Step 2 – CSS

Yes, fantastic CSS is here to save the day! We want to create something somewhat remenisce of this (photoshop mockup):

Like my little blur effect? I thought it fitted… Anyway. The blur will be the JS, but for now we want everything to be expanded, and shown, so that for the 1% of smart cookies that don’t have JS enabled, the sidebar will still be visible and still look pretty. Very, very big, but nevertheless, there. It’s a big chunk, so I’ve put it in another file, as to not fill this page up – Don’t kill me! Copy or type this CSS into your style.css. You’ll need all of these images:

activeBg.png, h1.png, inactiveBg.png, sidebarClose.png, sidebarOpen.png, topStoriesBg.png Some things to note I’ve done my best to stick to ems in terms of font-sizing, so the 75% just downsizes all text to 12px which becomes 1em. That’s for another tutorial though!In the h1 code I’ve used ‘text-shadow’. This is CSS3. It just contributes to the applesque look!#content – Has a background colour of white. Why you ask? The background will always be white anyway, what’s the point? Well, my friends, when we get to the jQuery we need #content to become a blanket for the sidebar, and if there is no background set, it’ll be transparent thus showing the sidebar.#sidebarToggleButton – That’s one hell of a name… This sets the button that will toggle the visibility of the sidebar to be correctly in position, but invisible to the JSless people. When we move onto the JS, the background images will be applied then, so they only show for the JS people!

Those 3 things are just about the only quirks in there. I’ve tested that code in FF, Safari 3 and Opera 9, and it all looks perfect! Here is how it should look:

Next we need to jQueryfy it.

Step 3 – jQuery Time!

I love jQuery! I love it that you can translate words to code so easily, and I always start off by doing the words. Here is a basic idea of what we want the script to do.

Hide the sidebar.On clicking ‘.sidebarOpen’, toggle the following: Remove the class ‘sidebarOpen’.Add the class ‘sidebarClose’ (which we’ll style next section).Animate the sidebar to slide out from under (literally, using position: relative;)Animate (this) to move X amount of pixels to the left (so that it stays in line with the sidebar). Initiate the Accordion.

That all seems like a lot (but it’s really not…) so I’ll take you through it step by step. Open up the file you created called sidebar.js and start typing!

Step 3.1

As always, don’t forget to wrap everything in jQuery’s special document ready:

view plaincopy to clipboardprint?$(document).ready(function(){
//jQuery code goes here
}); $(document).ready(function(){ //jQuery code goes here });

Put everything here on between the document ready!

Step 3.2 view plaincopy to clipboardprint?$("#sidebar").css({ left: "205px"}); $("#sidebar").css({ left: "205px"});

This ‘hides’ the sidebar by manipulating the DOM level CSS. It doesn’t really, it just gets swept under the rug. The literal rug being div#content. This wont actually work until we’ve added a little more CSS, but I’ll cover after this section.

Step 3.3 view plaincopy to clipboardprint?$(".sidebarOpen").toggle(function(){ $(this) .removeClass("sidebarOpen") .addClass("sidebarClose") .animate({right: "205px"}, 500); $("#sidebar").animate({left: "0px"}, 500); }, function(){ $(this) .removeClass("sidebarClose") .addClass("sidebarOpen") .animate({right: "0px"}, 500); $("#sidebar").animate({left: "205px"}, 500); }); $(".sidebarOpen").toggle(function(){ $(this) .removeClass("sidebarOpen") .addClass("sidebarClose") .animate({right: "205px"}, 500); $("#sidebar").animate({left: "0px"}, 500); }, function(){ $(this) .removeClass("sidebarClose") .addClass("sidebarOpen") .animate({right: "0px"}, 500); $("#sidebar").animate({left: "205px"}, 500); });

OK I can understand your confusion. This is a lot for a step by step instruction right?! Well yeah… But it’s actually 2 very similar things. The first function in the .toggle() will:

Removes the class of ‘sidebarOpen’ (the classes are for CSS in the next section).Adds the class of ‘sidebarClose’.Animates our little button to slide to the left alongside:The sidebar sliding out itself, being animated with jQuery. Both are set to come out during half a second, so they should move together.

The thing is, is that the second function is exactly that, but in reverse! It:

Removes the class of ‘sidebarClose’.Adds the class of ‘sidebarOpen’.Animates our little button to slide back in to the right alongside:The sidebar sliding back in.

See! Not so hard. It’s just a lot of code to read over.

Step 3.4

Accordion time! Yay! We finally get to use the ever present jQuery UI. The way they’ve designed the widget makes it super simple to impliment:

view plaincopy to clipboardprint?$("#sidebar ul").accordion({ header: 'h2', event: 'mouseover', activeClass: 'selected' }); $("#sidebar ul").accordion({ header: 'h2', event: 'mouseover', activeClass: 'selected' });

It’s just the one .accordion() function, applied to the ul within the #sidebar div. The parameters (one per line) are as follows (pretty self explanitory… But eh):

header – This defines the handles of each accordion ‘drawer’ – In our case, the h2 of each widget.event – Defines when to change drawers, and we want the hover effect like Apple has, so we use mouseoveractiveClass – This is handy for the little extra CSS we’re about to endure. It gives the expanded drawer a class of ‘selected’.

That’s all the JavaScript code we’ll be needing. It’s all pretty straightforward, and easily modified to suit whatever you need!

Why this is so fantastic

I feel this hasn’t been glorified enough yet! The amazing thing about the accordion plugin is that you don’t have to edit any of the WordPress generated code, which we haven’t formatted ourselves at all (aside from the wrapping ul, but that’s necessary regardless). Not only is it 100% unobtrusing and 100% unreliant on edited HTML code, but it’s also a short quick function. Accordion does all the dirty work of selecting, animating, activating, changing classes, etc. It’s great! Consider AccordionUI glorified! You should most probably have something similar to this (I’ve put the accordion in very lightly so you can see where it should be):

Step 4 – jQuery CSS

So obviously we’re going to need a little extra CSS to cater for all the chopping and changing jQuery does for us. Things needing additional styling are:

#sidebarToggleButton – Using the classes that jQuery assigns for us, we can now safely style the images ‘sidebarClose.png’ and ‘sidebarOpen.png’ that I got you to save earlier.The accordion definitely needs some work. We need to fix the square corders with some CSS3 and style the active class. view plaincopy to clipboardprint?/* jQUERY CSS */
#sidebar>ul{ border-radius: 5px; -moz-border-radius: 5px; -webkit-border-radius: 5px; -opera-border-radius: 5px; }
span.sidebarOpen{ background: url(images/sidebarOpen.png) no-repeat center; }
span.sidebarClose{ background: url(images/sidebarClose.png) no-repeat center; }
h2.selected{ background: url(images/activeBg.png) repeat-x !IMPORTANT; color: white !IMPORTANT; } /* jQUERY CSS */ #sidebar>ul{ border-radius: 5px; -moz-border-radius: 5px; -webkit-border-radius: 5px; -opera-border-radius: 5px; } span.sidebarOpen{ background: url(images/sidebarOpen.png) no-repeat center; } span.sidebarClose{ background: url(images/sidebarClose.png) no-repeat center; } h2.selected{ background: url(images/activeBg.png) repeat-x !IMPORTANT; color: white !IMPORTANT; }

Just 2 things to note:

#sidebar>ul – That is, the direct ul child of #sidebar gets the cool rounded corders – still beta CSS3. But works in all Mozilla, Opera and WebKit based browsers.!IMPORTANT – This is needed to override what has previously been set – the default handle grey background.

And so now, your final product show be something pretty like this: (Click for HTML version)

final Wrapping up

So we’ve gone over a bit of stuff in this tutorial. We’ve looked at dynamic sidebars, A lot of jQuery to show and hide the sidebar that is infact an accordion in itself! This tutorial was aimed at using additional plugins for the default jQuery (We plugged jQuery UI in), and also the dynamic_sidebar function.








15. Better Tagging with P2 - Dec 14, 2010 12:39:00 PM

When we originally released P2 our mission was to create an awesome feature-packed group blog theme. We have stayed true to that mission with new improvements to P2 functionality that will make collaborating with others much easier.

P2 now sports a site member autocomplete tool that takes the guesswork out of tagging people in your posts. P2 will also now display the most popular tags for a blog as well as the number of times a tag has been used. These new features allow you to better identify and organize your posts.

Site Member Autocomplete

When you write posts it is now possible to bring up a list of members posting on your blog. From the front page of P2, type the @ character with part of a username and the a list of username suggestions will appear based on username and display name. You can choose the correct member name to insert and the name should be added to your post content. After tagging a member in your post, the post will be filed under a special URL (for example: http://p2demo.wordpress.com/mentions/justin/).

Tagging Improvements

We have also made some great improvements to the tag-it box. The tags that appear when you begin typing will now be ordered by popularity. P2 will also display the number of times a tag has been used. This will allow you to better decide what tags to use. To use the feature just begin typing some characters and a list of available tags should display.

Using P2

Just like other themes, you can find P2 under Appearance > Themes on your dashboard. Those who are into the self-hosted version of WordPress can keep an eye out for the updated version of P2 in the coming weeks.


16. How to install Wordpress manually - Dec 14, 2010 12:35:00 PM

If you do not have the Fantastico auto installer on your account or just choose not to use it, you have the option to install WordPress manually. Please, follow the step-by-step guide below in order to activate Wordpress on your hosting account:

How to install Wordpress manually

Step 1: Download the installation file from the WordPress download section by clicking on "Download.zip" or "Download.tar.gz". This way you will get the latest stable release of the script.

Step 2: Upload it in public_html folder of your account. You can do that via FTP with a client like Filezilla or via cPanel -> File Manager -> Upload file(s). This way, after the installation is completed, the file script will appear once you visit your website.

Another option is to create a subfolder in your hosting account and upload the file in it. The WordPress installation will be accessible at:

http://www.yourdomainname.com/subfolder

Step 3: When you are in cPanel -> File Manager, navigate to the uploaded file and extract it by clicking on "Extract". The other option is to extract the file in your computer and then to upload the content in the desired folder via FTP.

Step 4: Once the files are extracted in the desired folder, you should create a MySQL database for WordPress. You can do that from cPanel -> MySQL Databases. Detailed instructions how to do so can be found in our MySQL tutorial.

Step 5: Rename wp-config-sample.php to wp-config.php and edit it. Fill in your database connection details in the following lines:

define('DB_NAME', ''); // The name of the database
define('DB_USER', ''); // Your MySQL username
define('DB_PASSWORD', ''); // ...and password

You can also change the default database prefix in order to secure your WordPress installation.

Step 6: Open in your browser:

www.yourdomainname.com/where_wordpress_is_extracted/wp-admin/install.php

This should set up the tables needed for your blog. If there is an error, double check your wp-config.php file, and try again.

Step 7: The installation procedure is finished. You can save the administrative username and the password. You will need them to access the WordPress installation admin backend in the future.

18. Malware Found in WordPress Theme – Protect Yourself Now - Dec 12, 2010 3:23:00 PM
I’ve just published “WordPress Theme Malware Prevention and Protection on WordCast, covering the recent WordPress Theme dissection of malware by Otto.

The article sums up his revealing analysis of how a Theme malware code integrates itself into your site, even down to the server level, through a twisting path of imaginative code. The code reminds me of insidious bombs featured in an episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine called “Houdinis.” The bombs vanished in and out of subspace, each less than a meter from another one in a grid. At any time it could appear and explode if it detected movement near it, surprising and killing the victims. This code has the ability to activate, create trouble, then erase its path, making it tough to detect, test, and eliminate.

The article also offers some tips and WordPress Plugins for checking your site for security vulnerabilities, as well as possibly test a Theme before you become too invested in it. There is no one full-proof, one step thing you can do yet, though there are many working on some advanced site armor and prevention tools which I will cover in an upcoming article on WordCast.

In general, use the built-in auto update feature to upgrade WordPress immediately when a mandatory security update is released, and upgrade Themes and Plugins.

Remember, prevention is cheaper and easier than dealing with a hack after the fact.

We live in “interesting times,” and I dream of the day when those who dance with the dark put their creative energy, discipline and determination into projects of light, peace, and joy…and that good would pay better than bad.

Balonare
Balonarea este cauzata de o anumita afectiune sau este o consecinta a unui stil alimentar dezordonat. Daca senzatia de balonare este repetitiva, in ciuda regimului alimentar optim, este important sa va adresezi unui medic specialist pentru a depista daca exista probleme digestive si cum pot fi tratate. Balonarea se manifesta prin gaze in exces in tubul digestiv, in special in stomac si intestine. In cazuri de balonare persistenta, este recomandata o detoxifiere de 2-3 ori pe an, necesitate prezenta in special dupa varsta de 35 de ani, cand problemele digestive devin mai frecvente.

25. Day 6: Pretty Permalinks and How To Keep Old Links Alive - Dec 10, 2010 2:05:00 PM

Have you ever looked at the URLs of your posts and thought “Hm, that might be a bit hard to remember” or even “I wonder what all that stuff means”? If that sounds familiar it’s high time you learned about permalinks and how to make them “pretty”. On this Sixth Day of WordPress we’ll take a look at how to get WordPress to use so-called “pretty” permalinks and also how to change the permalinks of existing WordPress sites without losing old links pointing to the site in the process.


Note that though this is fairly basic stuff that should work fine on most WordPress installations and hosts, I have encountered one case in which messing with the permalink structure had truly horrific site-destroying consequences. The following comes with no warranties and I take no responsibility if something goes wrong when you follow these instructions. That said I do what is described below on all the sites I work with and apart from that one very strange case on a very strange server I have never had any issues.


To understand pretty permalinks and how to make good use of them you first need to understand what they are and how they work. If you already know this you can skip this section and move on to the next one. If not, I’ll try to be concise and educational.


When you create a post or page in WordPress you are actually just creating a database entry equivalent to one row in a spreadsheet. Each post or page is assigned and identifying number so it can be tracked down and called by WordPress at any time. As an example this post has been assigned the number 1040. To call the content from one such entry, all you have to do is tell WordPress to display the content of row 1040 like this: http://www.designisphilosophy.com/?p=1040. This is called a query and it is at the core of WordPress’ functionality.


The problem of course is that whereas the server might find it very easy to deal with each post or page as a number, your visitors and search engines can’t really make heads or tails of it. They’d much rather have a proper description of the content of a particular post. This is where the pretty permalinks come in. By setting up a permalink structure for your WordPress site you tell WordPress and the server to assign new semantic (meaningful) URLs to each post and page – usually based on the title. So instead of that weird URL above the permalink URL for this page becomes http://www.designisphilosophy.com/24-days-of-wordpress/pretty-permalinks-and-how-to-keep-old-links-alive/. Not only is this new URL written in English, but it gives a clear description of the post: It belongs to 24 Days of WordPress and it has something to do with permalinks. And that’s what we want.


By default WordPress uses the numbering scheme for all your content. This is not what you want unless your site will only be read by computers. Which I guess could happen. Fortunately changing the permalink structure for WordPress is a 10 second process:

Go to Settings -> PermalinksClick the “Custom Structure” radio buttonEnter the following strip of code: /%category%/%postname%/Click Save Changes

If your server allows WordPress to write to the .htaccess file this is all you have to do and your posts will now be listed as http://www.yourdomain.com/category/postname while your pages will be listed as http://www.yourdomain.com/pageparent/pagename. Done and done.


In some cases the server will not let WordPress write to a file called .htaccess. If so you have to do some manual labour to get everything to work. Good thing is WordPress does the work for you – you just have to copy and paste some code.


If when you followed the 4 steps above WordPress runs into trouble it’ll give you a warning at the bottom of the page that looks something like this:


All you have to do now is copy the code in the box (may be different from what you see above), paste it into the .htaccess file and push it back up to your server. Here’s a more thorough rundown step by step:

Log in to the root folder of your WordPress installation through FTPIn the root instalation you should find a file called “.htaccess”. If so copy it to somewhere on your desktop and make a backup copy called “.htaccessOLD” just in case something goes wrong.Open .htaccess in your text editor.If there is no .htaccess file in your root folder, open your text editor and create a file named “.htaccess”. Note there is no prefix here and the file has no file type. If you save it as “.htaccess.txt” for example it will not work.Go to the Permalinks page in your WordPress installation, find the code as illustrated above and copy the whole bulk of code.Go to .htaccess and paste the code in anywhere.Save .htaccess and  use your FTP client to put it back into the root folder of your WordPress installation.

Now when  you reload your WordPress site it should have pretty permalinks. If it doesn’t you missed a step somewhere. If everything explodes or nothing loads, go back through FTP, remove the .htaccess file, make a copy of your backup file, rename it “.htaccess” overwriting your new broken version and push .htaccess back up to your site through FTP. This should restore everything.


Now that you have your pretty permalinks properly configured you can start customizing them. When you create a new post or page and click either Save Draft or Publish, WordPress generates a permalink for you. If you used my permalink structure above the post will get a URL based on the category and post name (or in case of a page the page parent (if any) and the page name). If it’s a post with multiple categories WordPress will pick the first category alphabetically and use that one so if you want a specific category pick that one first, save the post as a draft and then add additional categories.


Once a permalink has been established, you can change the postname portion of it. You do this by clicking the Edit button that appears directly next to the permalink (which is displayed directly under the post title) and typing in a new title. Keep in mind on the web only standard English letters work and you can’t have any spaces so separate your words with dashes. When you’re satisfied click OK and the new permalink is applied.


WordPress does a pretty good job at defining these permalinks for you but you may want to edit them. For example this post is has the words “Day 6? at the beginning of the title, but since I don’t think people are going to search for “Day 6? hoping to find an article on WordPress permalinks I’ve taken it out.


“But” you may say “my site has been up for years using the old crappy numbering system and thousands of sites link to me already. If I change the permalink structure on my site, all those links will point nowhere. That can’t be good.” And you will be right. If you have an existing site with an old permalink structure – whether it be the default or some strange structure you or your web developer came up with a couple of years ago – and you want to change it you have to insert safeguards that people who visit your posts and pages using the old structure won’t be led astray.


Fortunately, like with most things WordPress, there’s a plugin for that. And it’s called Dean’s Permalink Migration plugin (for a full breakdown check out Dean’s site).


This plugin works on a very simple principle: You provide the old permalink structure for your site and it will redirect anyone using that old structure to the new permalink locations. Once you have the plugin installed (it’s available through the WordPress Plugin Directory and can be installed from within WordPress) and activated, a new option appears under Settings called “PermalinksMigration”. To use the function simply click this option, enter the old permalink structure in the field and click Update Options. Can’t get much simpler than that.


Now if for some strange reason you have multiple different permalink structures you need to redirect there are other more heavyweight plugins available, but I find that in most cases the simplest option is the best one and this is as simple and straight forward as it gets.
